The Manor House ... Moreton in Marsh

Today I was styling bridal hair for Sarah's wedding at The Manor House Hotel in Moreton in Marsh. I was with Sarah and her bridesmaids all morning styling their hair ready for the wedding at lunchtime. It was such a great morning getting the girls ready in one of the hotels luxurious suites and I was even treated to the most wonderful champagne with them! I started with Charlie's hair, she was very keen to have a style that didn't look too 'done' and liked the idea of having a messy chignon side bun. Curling her hair with heated rollers I then pinned it into place and created a tousled 'messy' look which looked great!I finally added a finishing touch of a silk flower headdress in the same royal purple colour as the bridesmaids dresses.

Sarah's other bridesmaid had a medium length bob which I was keen to show could be styled into an 'updo'.
People don't always realise how you can create an updo bridal hairstyle with relatively short hair that most people would think was too short to put up. I curled the hair with GHD's and by backcombing the root area and pinning the hair in sections it gave the illusion of the hair being much longer and pinned into a great tousled updo.
Finally I styled Sarah's hair which was fantastic naturally curly and very thick hair. I used GHD's to smooth and tame the hair. Once this was done I curled the hair into intertwined curls creating a feature of curls at the back and soft tendrils at the front with a crossed over lattice detail at the sides.

Once the curls were all pinned into place I then pinned in the pearl hairpins which Sarah had made herself! She had also made jewellery for gifts to her bridesmaids! A very artistic and talented girl! Once I had finished all three girls the bridesmaids helped Sarah get into her stunning wedding dress which required the 2 bridesmaids to lace her in. Sarah looked amazing and the sun was out on this bank holiday wedding in the Cotswolds!
