Following on from my last post earlier this week, I am still updating the blog with all the fantastic weddings that I have been privileged to style this summer and Autumn. Travelling around Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, The Cotswolds and further styling hair for weddings is such a great job and I'm very proud to have been shortlisted in The 2013 Wedding Industry Awards! I was very proud to have won the Bridal Stylist of the Year 2012.
So here are some photos of some of the goregeous brides, bridesmaids and Mums that I styled this summer....
Lois's Wedding at Curradine Barns Worcestershire
Beautiful Lois went for a classical bridal hair up style for her wedding at Curradine Barns, Shrawley in Worcestershire. A great hair style that looks soft and elegant but will withstand everything that a wedding day can throw at it!
Styling hair for Mum and bridesmaids too adds to the fun of getting everyone ready on a wedding morning.
Lucy's Bridal Hair Styling at Clevedon for Priston Mill Wedding
A mega early start to style hair for Lucy and her family for her wedding in Clevedon followed by reception at the Tythe Barn at Priston Mill near Bath. The above photo is a fantastic shot of Lucy and her husband shot by Robin Bradshaw of Bullit Photography whose recent accolade was to be official photographer for Dermot O'Leary's wedding!
I sat watching the sun come up over the seafront as I arrived at Clevedon, there are some perks to being up so early!
A fabulously elegant up do created with individual clip in hair extensions, complimented by a stunning jewelled headband!
Katie's Wedding Hair Styling at Bibury Court Hotel in The Cotswolds
Another stunning bride at a beautiful Cotswold location. I was styling hair for Katie's wedding at the recently refurbished Bibury Court Hotel, a beautiful hotel impeccably styled and just the most perfect location with the village church literally situated on the other side of the hotel's garden!
A truly gorgeous bride, Katie's hair was styled into a side swept half up style, just perfect!
Jessica's Wedding Hair Styling at Malvern
Jessica was married at Malvern College which was her old school, I spent the morning in Great Malvern styling hair for her and her bridesmaids. Jessica bought a vintage brooch from my collection to use in her hair,
I source these antique and vintage hair clips and brooches as they are a fraction of the cost of modern replicas and they make the perfect 'something old' for your wedding, they look great in most modern or vintage bridal hairstyles and a they are also beautiful heirloom to pass on! They are priced from £30-£45 depending on size and design, I carry a constantly changing collection so please email me if interested and I can send images of the current ones available.
An elegant up do suited Jessica's hair perfectly and the sparkle for the vintage clip was the perfect finishing touch!
All the bridesmaids wanted 'messy' up do's, once I had curled, backcombed and pinned the styles into place I pinned fresh flowers in to add the finishing touch.
I loved the style of the bridesmaids dresses, the 'Two Bird' dresses are designed to be tied into over a dozen different combinations making it the perfect choice to suit all bridesmaids.
