Kingscote Barn Winter Wedding

An early start this morning to drive over into the Cotswolds to a favourite venue of mine Kingscote Barn near Tetbury. A Truly beautiful converted barn that offers a unique venue in an area of outstanding natural beauty.It was a relatively mild morning as I arrived to style the hair for Caroline and her bridesmaid sister and Mum.
The barn greets you as you descend the steep drive from the main road, twinkling Christmas tree in the main window facing the drive, all very seasonal!

Caroline stayed the night before in 'Spring Cottage' the beautiful country cottage adjacent to and belonging to Kingscote Barn.
I started by putting both Caroline and her sisters hair into heated rollers to add body before blow drying 'Mums' hair into a modern funky style and then attaching her fascinator.

Caroline had decided on a chignon/bun hairstyle. This is a very 'now' bridal hairstyle, incredibly elegant and very much an A list hairstyle!
Once styled and tweaked I then attached the gorgeous pearl and diamond clip to the side of the chignon to add real sparkle and finesse!

Caroline's sister had been growing her hair to be able to have an updo for the wedding. We decided on a French pleat which is a very classical updo hairstyle. Styled with a slightly contemporary feel, by leaving pieces slightly tousled, it looked great!
Clare Bryce arrived to do the girls make up whilst I was finishing the final details of the hair, once Clare had worked her usual magic they were all ready and looking amazing for the day ahead.
Just as I was leaving photographer Sarah Cameron arrived to capture all the special images of the day.
