Charlton Kings Cheltenham Wedding

With wedding season in full swing I'm still doing Sunday weddings and today I was in Cheltenham at the very early time of 7.30am to style hair for Lucy's wedding in Charlton Kings.

I started with bridesmaid Laura who had amazing naturally curly hair, when I did the trial run for Lucy's hair a month or so back Laura decided to have a trial run aswell. We decided on a side chignon utilising the natural curl of the hair with the front sections tamed into soft ringlets with GHD's. Once it was all curled and pinned into place I attached the pearl and crystal comb headdress, Laura looked beautiful and it was great to work with such fantastic hair!

I was also styling the hair for both Mum and Mum in Law today. I blow dried them both whilst Lucy ran off to have some breakfast!

Lucy's hair was styled in a very classical barrel curled bridal updo. It was great to create such an elaborate updo, it takes a lot of curling, pinning and tweaking to get the hair to sit in the right place and stay all day but it is also very satisfying to see a bride look so fabulous!


Finishing the hair with diamante gems and a truly beautiful diamante tiara I left Lucy and her family to finish getting ready for the wedding.

To prove that I'm not ALWAYS working I wanted to post a picture of a visit to somewhere that I have worked several times and one of my FAVOURITE wedding venues in the Cotswolds. After I finished Lucy's hair I went to an open day at Barnsley House near Bibury to see the world famous gardens that were created by Rosemary Verey who helped Prince Charles with the design of his gardens at Highgrove near Tetbury. I am also thrilled to say that I have been invited on a tour of His Royal Highness's garden at Highgrove very soon which is an amazing privilege!!!
