Bowden Hall Gloucestershire Hair styling

 I had a short journey over to Bowden Hall in Upton Saint Leonards to style Jenna's wedding hair do.
The above picture is one that Jenna kindly sent through to me, I think you will agree that she looks amazing, very Audry Hepburn like.

 Jenna wore this wonderful crystal tiara in her hair which I think is one of the nicest tiaras I've seen in a long time, very different with a great vintage feel.


Jenna had only got in touch with me at short notice and I was lucky enough to have been able to fit her into my crazy schedule! It has been an incredibly busy year so far with weddings, it is always lovely to be able to help someone out like this at short notice and when they look as fab as this well that is just the cherry on the cake!

Cheltenham Wedding Hair styling for Eve

 Today was over to Cheltenham to style Eve's hair for her wedding. The above pic shows 2 of her bridesmaids with the great up do styles that I did for them. They were created by blow drying volumising lotion into the hair and then adding body by placing the hair around heated rods. Once the hair was volumised it was pinned into curls and spritzed into place before attaching the blue silk roses.

 Super glamorous bridesmaids looking stunning in blue!

 Great accessories, Eve has worn her signature perfume 'All about Eve' for years so it was very important to have it today. And those shoes!!! How fabulous are they!
 The above pic shows the back detail of Eve's hair, taken half up and twisted into detail below the crown area.
 I loved this shot of Eve's hair, curled with GHD's and heated rollers, the pinned up into a half up do. The rose is an oversized silk rose which I pinned into the hair before fixing the veil into place.

Hair Styling at Tortworth Court Wedding



I was at the beautiful location of Tortworth Court today to style Clare's hair for her wedding, this is a beautiful wedding venue in the Cotswolds near to Wooton Under Edge. Most of my blog entries are photographed by me but the photos here are from Clare's official (brilliant) photographer Johnny Hathaway

I styled Clare's hair into a stunning up do with some loose pieces framing the front, an ultra soft and glamorous bridal hair style, very romantic.

I curled her hair first with GHD's then pinned it into soft loose curls in the nape of the neck. I added some lift around the crown area and then pinned fresh flowers into the curls, the finishing touch was to add the beautiful veil.


I also styled the hair for the bridesmaids also pinning fresh flowers into their hair styles before leaving the girls to get ready for the big day.

Beechfield House Wiltshire Bridal Wedding Hair

I had the privilege of styling hair for a wedding at Beechfield House Hotel near to Chippenham and Bath. The hotel is a stunning privately owned luxury hotel in Wiltshire and offers a fantastic venue for a boutique wedding.

I was styling Michelle's hair for her wedding and I was very excited to create this style for her today. This style was made possible by using clip in hair extensions, Michelle hadn't got enough length or thickness to her hair to create this style but by using clip in extensions I was able to make it work.

Extensions are a brilliant way to have a style that wouldn't be possible with your own hair, they are relatively inexpensive to buy and as long as they are secured properly there is no way they can slip out and they are impossible to detect from your own natural hair. I love working with them and I'm creating lots of wedding hair styles with them at the moment.


Once I had curled Michelle's natural hair and fixed the extensions into place I then pinned the back into a chignon. Fixing the jewelled headband into place and adding a veil behind the crown and the style was complete.
Sophie Chamings was doing the make up for the bridal party today and they all looked amazing!


The above picture is Michelle's sister in law, it shows how shorter styles can still be styled in a glamorous way for a wedding. I used heated rollers around the crown area to give it lift and then took one side back and fixed clips with silk flowers on for decoration.

I also used clip in extensions on Michelle's Mum's hair to create this rolled up do that she asked for. This was a lovely style to do, it looked really elegant and with the feather fascinator pinned into place she looked every bit the glamorous mother of the bride!
