Valentines Wedding Hair Styling at Eastnor Castle


A wedding day is always a romantic day but today was even more romantic as Suzie was getting married on Valentines day at the stunning Herefordshire Wedding Venue Eastnor Castle near Ledbury. Eastnor Castle is a venue I style hair for often and where I started bridal hair styling MANY years ago!

Suzie and her bridesmaids were staying at the Castles beautiful original lodge called 'Golden Gates', I arrived here to start styling the girls hair before we moved up to the castle just before the ceremony.




A classical chignon style was the order of the day for one of the bridesmaids but brought up to date with a braid / plait along one side.




Gorgeous bride Suzie (pictured above in her fantastic Valentines day onesie!!) asked for a high updo, a truly beautiful style that accentuated Suzie's beautiful high cheekbones, complimented by a crystal floral headdress, Suzie really did look amazing!


Fabulous shoes!!


Stunning crystal headdress!


Make up for the girls was created by make up artist Katy Pheiffer who I have worked with previously on photo shoots and weddings.



A great idea for a bouquet that will last! Made from vintage brooches and jewellery! What a brilliant idea!


The bridesmaids all wore blue....but different shades! 


The inner entrance to Eastnor Castle festooned with hearts and candles to greet guests.
