VOWS chats to... WYNNIE TAM TAM ♡
This is a luxury scent, candle and accessory brand with a difference. Although real bride and founder Wynne experienced stress and worry when it came to postponing her wedding (twice) due to the pandemic, the journey has led her to develop Wynnie Tam Tam and launch Bride Calm candle. Which not only smells divine but can also help you to unwind before and after the big day.
The first candle in the launch of the collection, this sustainable and natural candle is definitely for the bride looking to find calm in the midst of wedding planning stress. With notes of floral ylang ylang, the uplifting scent of geranium to relieve tension and lavender to calm the body and mind, Bride Calm has been specially formulated with 100% natural essential oils that are derived directly from flowers, fruits and plants from around the world. So no synthetic fragrances, 100% natural soy wax, sustainable packaging plus all candles are hand poured in London. A little bit of luxury, and made with eco-friendly love. Even Wynnie Tam Tam's candle ettique information is super cute!
With a career in luxury hotel and international travel industry, working for leading brands such as Shangri-La Hotels & Resorts and Harrods, its no surprise that Wynne's Bride Calm has already been seen in Tatler, Stylist and is stocked in some stunning boutiques. We chat to Wynne.
So, how did we meet?
Tell us more about your career/and or brand.
My name is Wynne and I am the Founder of Wynnie Tam Tam. I have loved scents since I was six, definitely influenced by my mother! She is a scent enthusiast and taught me a lot about fragrances and essential oils. In fact, one of my earliest memories is the scent of her Loulou Cacharel perfume. She taught me which scents blend or mix well together as well as other tips and tricks that have influenced my brand!
Wynnie Tam Tam was started with the mission to be real, personal, and connect with people from the heart through the power of fragrance. I promised that mission to be poured into every candle that will allow anyone who indulges to connect to that moment, and create a newfound memory that will leave a lasting impression for life.
Best bridal advice?
You have to find that sense of calm in the midst of wedding planning stress.
The last year hasn't been easy for anyone and it is always good to take time to reflect on how you've been doing.
I have also learnt that even the smallest gestures like being in nature and reaching out to friends and family when I need support can make a huge difference.
What aspects of a wedding would you vow to re-work, re-use and re-
My Bride Calm candle! To remind me of my big day, the ups and downs of planning my twice post-poned wedding plus the candle's glass casing doubles up as such a fabulous candle holder once the wax has burnt out.
