Iryna's Wedding Hair Styling at Thornbury Castle for Berkeley Castle Wedding


What a great update for today on The Real Wedding Hair Blog .... So this wedding was all about castles! I was styling hair for the gorgeous Russian bride Iryna at Henry VIII's Thornbury Castle in Gloucestershire, her wedding was then later held at the 900 year old Berkeley Castle just down the road!




This gorgeous Russian bride wanted a very elegant and classical hairstyle with a modern twist. I created a chignon bun at the middle of the head with elegant vintage victory rolls along the side all complimented by a plaited rope of hair across the top! 







Flowers were provided by the gorgeous Maria from Sorori Design Florist and as ever Maria created STUNNING bouquets! 


Another gorgeous style that I had to share with you was one of the styles I created for the bridesmaids. This is Iryna's neice and we went for a half up hairstyle with a vintage rolled detail at the back.


....and just before I leave the girls to get into their dresses I grab a quick pose with the gorgeous Iryna, another satisfied and happy bride!

Selina's Wedding Day Hairstyling at Kingscote Barn Tetbury


Hello and welcome to another Kingscote Barn wedding here on The Real Wedding Hair Blog ...

What a great blackboard!! This was inside the barn to let the families know that there was no formal seating plan for the ceremony!

Today I was once again over at Kingscote Barn to style hair for Selina's wedding. This was the 3rd wedding this weekend for me with yesterday's wedding also at Kingscote Barn and Friday's wedding at Tetbury's Great Tythe Barn...check them out as previous entries here on 'The Real Wedding Hair Blog'.


Selina's hair style was a fantastic curled, tousled up do, I created this by adding lots of hair extensions to give more volume and body, a great look!


A jewelled headband on one side really added the WOW factor to this look and the veil was pined in underneath the hair do.



What a stunning dress, I can't wait to see images of Selina in it!


Not content with one cheesy pose I had two cheesy poses today!! The girls all wanted a group shot complete with heated rollers!


Tousled up do hair styles for the bridesmaids!





Steph asked for her hair to be styled into a style that Eva Longoria had done for a red carpet award ceremony, it is a style I get asked to do a lot and perfect for a wedding look.




Selina's sister Amanda went for an elegant side bun chignon style, I added hair extensions to bulk the hair out and give a bolder stronger look. Fresh flowers finished the look perfectly.




The flowers for the day had been created by Sara Tuckey from Aqua Florists, simply stunning!!


Inside Kingscote Barn, all set up for the ceremony with flowers by Aqua.



So after creating hair for three different weddings over three days I feel as if I have just completed a marathon, a great weekend!

Bridal Hair Styling at The Old Surgery Tetbury for Kingscote Barn Wedding


Thanks for checking out The Real Wedding Hair Blog .... So back to it this morning and a drive over to Tetbury to style hair for Gayle's wedding at the Kingscote Barn. Gayle and her family were staying at The Old Surgery in Tetbury on Silver Street. A fabulous townhouse available to rent for holidays or in this instance for wedding preparation!



I'm starting with a finished picture of Gayle, a beautiful look complimented by the half up vintage feel hairstyle that I created. A high crown area and a roll on one side really worked well and looked even better with her Jenny Packham headdress.


The Old Surgery (Number 11, Silver Street, Tetbury) is an amazing property, loads of space and finished with some amazing props and detailed decor....





I like to have a cheesy picture of me with my brides if I get the chance, Gayle was still in her bath robe but she looked amazing!


I also styled Gayle's sister Laura into a half up hairstyle with a victory roll to one side, Vicotry rolls are becoming increasingly popular and add a great vintage touch to wedding hair styles.


I curled the rest of her hair and pinned some up into loops.




I fell totally in love with Gayle's headpiece, a truly stunning Jenny Packham headdress originally seen by Gayle worn by Cheryl Cole.


The family finished getting ready after I had completed the hair styling before heading over the short drive to Kingscote Barn for the ceremony and celebrations.

Great Tythe Barn Tetbury Bridal Hair Styling


Welcome to the latest update on The Real Wedding Hair Blog .... The start of a very busy weekend for me with 3 weddings, one today on Friday, at The Great Tythe Barn near Tetbury and then Saturday and Sunday wedding hair styling for Kingscote Barn weddings!


Nicola had a half up half down hairstyle for her wedding hair, a great style that can be adapted as seen here with a woven detail just below the crown area.


Whilst bridesmaid Claire went for a half up hairstyle but with a victory roll added to one side to give a vintage feel!



Bridesmaid Nic had a short bob but by adding body with heated rollers I was able to give the hair a great feel to compliment the feather headdress that she had bought.



The diamante and pearl comb that Nicola had chosen for her wedding hairstyle was perfect and placed to one side it complimented the look perfectly.



A close up shot of the woven detail at the back below the crown.
