Belmont Abbey / Homme House

I was really looking forward to doing Kathleen's bridal hair for her wedding in Herefordshire today. Kathleen was getting married at Belmont abbey in Hereford with a reception afterwards at the fantastic venue Homme House in the village of Much Marcle just outside Ledbury. Homme House is one of my all time favourite venues, Jocelyn and her team are superb and the house is just perfect for wedding receptions.

Kathleen and family had rented a beautiful converted barn near to Ross on Wye to stay in for the wedding preparations for the day. The view I took a photo of (above) was the incredible view from the upper window where I was styling hair and Sophie Chamings of Cheltenham was doing make up.Kathleen had decided on a side chignon and had hand made some beautiful pearl/crystal hair combs for the decoration, a very talented bride! Both Sophie and I were trying to convince her into making them to provide for future brides!I curled Kathleen's hair with GHD's first to add body and shine. The hair was then twisted and pinned into the side chignon on one side and a feature made of the twists on the other side, it gave the look a fab Boho-chic feel. I was also styling the hair for Kathleen's Mum and bridesmaid who both had great fascinator style headdresses to compliment their look. Both looks were created using heated rollers to create body and volume in the hair and finishing details were added with GHD's. It was a great morning at the barn getting the ladies ready for the big day and we were also entertained by Russell Lewis photographer who as ever was great company! I was reluctant to leave when I'd finished as I'd had such a great morning!
