Eastington Hall Vintage Wedding Hair

I was at one of my favourite wedding venues 'Eastington Hall' near Stonehouse Gloucestershire today.

Eastington is a beautiful Georgian mansion which received a glamorous refurbishment last year to become one of Gloucestershire's most sought after premier wedding venues.

Today was Emily's wedding and the entire wedding had a really nice vintage feel to it. Emily's fabulous rich brunette hair was curled all over to give it body for us to create the waves and formed curls.

Once I'd finished pinning the hair into the elaborate style I pinned her diamante and crystal comb into the style.


I next blow dried Emily's mother's hair to give it lots of body and gently flicked it to compliment the most fantastic hat with feather adornment. It really had a beautiful 40's/50's feel.

Emily's sister then had her hair curled with GHD's to give beautiful curls all over which I then pinned up at the front to create a very elegant half up do.
Emily had tried to book Clare Bryce's make-up services for the day but Clare was already booked to do a wedding at Sudeley Castle, however Clare was able to offer Emily a customised lesson service that she is now offering. A few weeks before the wedding Emily and Clare met and Clare designed a bespoke make-up for emily showing her exactly how to recreate the look on the day, such a brilliant idea and Emily was thrilled with the result!

As I was leaving Emily and the others getting ready, the men in the wedding party were all gathering outside the mansion ready to go to the church, they looked amazing as Emily's fiance is in the RAF so they were all in their blue grey uniform which also added to the 40's /50's vintage type feel of the wedding.

The sun was shining and after the worry of the snow earlier in the week Emily couldn't have asked for more!
Andie's Trial Run
As soon as I left Eastington Hall I drove back up the motorway to vist Andie to do her trial run for her wedding in April. Rather bizarrely Andie is also getting married at Eastington Hall so it was great to be able to chat with her and tell her how the morning had been with Emily's wedding.
Andie's trial run was a great success and I'm really looking forward to putting pictures of her on this blog and my main website once I've done the wedding ... check back soon!
