Cotswold wedding's

I had to be up and ready at 5.00am this morning to travel to the village of Sapperton near Cirencester to style Ellen's hair for her wedding, Autumn had well and truly set in as I drove in the dark over to Ellen's.

I started by styling Ellen's sister Katie's hair. This was a really nice style to do as it was a new twist on a french roll which was twisted from one side to the other of the head and leaving tumbling curls over one shoulder ... very sophisticated and romantic.


For Ellen's hair we had decided on curling it and building the crown up slightly to compliment the stunning jewelled and pearl tiara.
Ellen had also chosen the most beautiful jewel encrusted wedding gown and pearl and diamond cathedral length veil.
Clare (Pure Pampering) was doing the make up for the entire wedding party and we had a really great morning getting everyone ready for the day ahead.

We were also entertained by Ellen's 10 year old neice who came out with the most wonderful quote that I think sums up most weddings ...' I like weddings, they're weird, everyone gets up incredibly early and then runs around like crazy!'
After the wedding Katie was holding her reception at the Kingscote Barn.

The Greenway Country House Hotel Shurdington

Once Clare and I had finished at Sapperton I drove over to The Greenway Hotel just outside Cheltenham to style Paula's hair.

I went to Paula's home in Berkshire earlier in the year to do the run through and we decided on a fabulously glamorous updo that was very Audrey Hepburn!
The Greenway hotel is an incredibly luxurious hotel and we had a great afternoon (especially when Paula insisted we should have some wine together!) Clare arrived to do the make up once I had put Paula's hair into rollers, and really made Paula look fantastic.

Jan from Blenheim photography also arrived to capture some memories for Paula and Craig's big day, it soon seemed like we were having a party in the bridal suite!! Paula made the most stunning bride and we all really enjoyed helping her look amazing!
