tiles have a bleached look after grouting

Asked by Phil from east sussex: Bought some Botachelli marble mosaic tiles for our bathroom, used an enhancer and sealer; when I applied the grout the tiles faded. Attempted a repair and removed the grout and applied more enhancer and the colour returned. Problem is when i grout, it fades again! What am I doing wrong?

TileProf says: Hi Phil, Personally I would have sealed first, left to cure < 24 hours > then grouted, make sure remove any excess grout with a sponge within minutes of applying it, and then left to dry < again 24 hours > and then reapplied another coat of Sealer to finish the job.
