Matara Centre Wedding Hair Styling




Ann-Marie's wedding was at The Matara Centre near Tetbury, a truly fabulous location for a wedding with eastern vibes.

Most of the wedding party were staying in 'Kingscote Park House' a gorgeous regency house beautifully styled inside and out.



A vintage waved style was the order of the day, Ann-Marie had bought a genuine 1920's dress for the big day so we designed this waved style to give a modern feel of the vintage look.



The bridesmaids all went for curled and waved hair to give a similar vintage vibe to the day.




The final touch for Ann-Marie's gorgeous bridal look was this beautiful metal clip in the shape of a feather adorned with cut stone gems.

Wedding Hair Styling Dumbleton Hall




Today I had a drive over to Stow on the Wold to holiday cottages that Kathy and her family were staying in for the wedding preparations. 


Kathy was having both a Chinese and a British wedding ceremony. The hair was first curled then pinned up into entwined curls to create this elegant style which was finished with the Chinese headdress in gold and red.



 Creating beautiful make up for Kathy was Sophie Chamings, the above picture is credited to Sophie.


As I was completing the styling for Kathy, her Mum presented me with this red envelope that contained 'lucky money' which is a tradition that Chinese people have at weddings.

Egypt Mill Nailsworth Wedding hair styling


Most of the brides I style hair for don't actually live near to this area, either they come here for their wedding because they've fallen in love with the area or because parents live here. Today's bride, Linda, is local to this area and she, her husband to be and her Mum have been regular hair dressing clients of mine for the past year. I always have a great time styling their hair and today was no exception!


Mum, looking fab with curly blowdry to add body and glamour to her short hair style.


Bridesmaid, curled and styled with a braid which is becoming one of the must have bridal hair looks.

Linda had firm ideas on how she wanted her hair to look. This 'boho-chic' style, curled with single plait finished with silver and pearl headdress.


Step-Mum had a bob length style which I curled and pinned up to create the feeling of longer hair styled into an up do.




Linda looked FANTASTIC!! I had a great morning helping Linda and the others get ready at her Dad's house near Stroud ready for the wedding over at The Egypt Mill in Nailsworth.

Bibury & Cripps Barn Wedding


When I arrived to style hair for today's bride she had just received this beautiful hamper of goodies that her husband to be had put together! How romantic is that! The hamper contained lots of her favorite treats to make her wedding morning perfect including some lovely champagne and 'The key to his heart'!!



I love creating styles like this! Lucy had asked for a sculpted side do that would look elegant to suit the dress that she had chosen.

Having set the hair on rollers I smoothed and twisted the hair into these defined curls.





One bridesmaid went for a low nape chignon with pearl and diamante clip for detail.



Mum asked for a funky spiky hair do, she was GREAT fun and this style sums up the energy that this fabulous lady had!!!


Clare Bryce was with me, seen here adding finishing touches to Lucy's make up, she really is an amazing make up artist and we always have a great time when we work together on weddings.

Clare took some great photos of the morning and the following pics are all credited to her......



 This is the stunning cottage that Lucy had rented for the wedding preparations, she was getting married at nearby Cripps Barn which doesn't have any accomodation so lots of bride stay in nearby Bibury village or Barnsley House Hotel.


Lucy looking gorgeous as she posed for photographs.
