Brides in the Press!

Well I'm always delighted when a bride that I style hair for appears on a blog or in a magazine but this month has blown me away! In the latest addition of Cotswold Bride Magazine there are three brides that I had the pleasure of styling hair for.

 The photos above and below are from Chloe & Morgan's Wedding at Kingscote Barn near Tetbury, the photographer for their wedding was a good friend of mine called Clint from Pixel Photography. Every bride fears bad weather on their wedding day but although the weather wasn't the best for Chloe's wedding they were bowled over by Clint's ability to produce beautiful moody and atmospheric photos.....it just goes to prove that it doesn't always need to be sunny!

The wedding below was held at The Matara Centre in the village of Kingscote, a different kind of venue with Eastern inspiration, a very spiritual place with beautiful grounds and a stunning water garden that outdoor ceremonies can be conducted next to. This dreamy photo is by Torie Clarke Wedding Photographer from Cheltenham.

The final wedding in the trio of featured weddings is from Nicole and Felipe's wedding at The Great Tythe Barn just outside the market town of Tetbury here in the Cotswolds. 
Nicole went for a gorgeous half up hair style to compliment her stunning Susan Neville wedding dress. I spent a lovely morning with a good friend and celebrity make up artist Sarah Brock styling Nicole's look for her big day. The photographs are by uber talented Jo of Jo Hansford Photography.

Back in October of last year I styled Amy's hair for her wedding at Cripps Stone Barn here in the Cotswolds.

Styling took place at the lovely Wheatsheaf Inn at Northleach, I was with Claire from Pure Pampering and the day was documented by Skinny Boy Films who have just sent me this lovely trailer film of Amy's big day.....

Amy's Cotswold Wedding Hair Styling at Kingscote Barn

Kingscote Wedding Hairdresser

I love to see an image like that above! To complete styling a brides hair and see her face light up with excitement as she views herself for the first time is just magical!!

This is Amy who I was styling hair for at her recent wedding at Kingscote Barn in the Cotswolds. I have been a regular Kingscote Barn Hairdresser for around 5 or 6 years now and I still get a huge buzz from going to this beautiful venue. Nestled in a small private valley near to Tetbury, the barn is a stunning renovated historical Cotswold barn that specialises in weddings and functions.

When I met Amy a few months before her wedding for her trial appointment at my home in Stroud we looked through lots of images on Pinterest and previous photos of brides I had styled before we came up with this gorgeous soft tousled look. I added a braid along one side to keep the look fresh and slightly boho and on the day we pinned Lily of the Valley flowers into the curls.....the fragrance from the flowers was divine!

The soft romantic look was perfect for this beautiful country wedding and was complimented perfectly by the amazing make up that Clare Bryce Make Up artist did.

Elmore Court Wedding Hair Styling

Welcome to the first 2015 update of 'The Real Wedding Hair Blog', it's already proving to be a very busy year at Fordham Hair design With lots of weddings booked for 2015 and lots of Bridal Hair Training Courses for budding bridal hair specialists there is lot to watch out for here on 'The Real Wedding Hair Blog'.

I'm very excited to have been chosen as a recommended supplier for one of  the finest wedding venues in Gloucestershire. The beautiful Elmore Court is one of the newest wedding venues in the Gloucestershire area but whilst deserving the title of the newest venue it is actually 750 years old with amazing history and in the very capable hands of a member of the original family, Anselm Guise.

The very fabric of the building oozes history, romance and style, a beautiful family home that has been incredibly restored and given a new life as one of the premier wedding venues within the Gloucestershire and Cotswold area.

I was here recently to style hair for Helen's wedding along with Clare Bryce Wedding Make Up Specialist , someone I lovingly call 'my work wife' and together we styled hair and make up for Helen and her bridesmaids.

Helen went for a side 'up do', a very soft and tousled look which looked incredible along with her stunning headdress with birdcage veil.

And not forgetting the bridesmaids who decided on soft up styles with braids and roses decorations.

With lots more weddings booked at this stunning venue I'm looking forward to showing you many more styles created at Elmore Court.
