Clearwell Castle Wedding Hair

My morning started at 5am today to drive over to the Forest of Dean to style Rebecca's hair for her wedding at Clearwell Castle. The entrance to the castle is through this rather impressive gate-house to be greeted by the north front of the castle. Rebecca and her bridesmaids were staying in 'Keepers Cottage' adjacent to the castle. This beautiful self contained cottage allows the bridal party to get ready in comfort before moving over to the castle later in the morning (it also has a beautiful pond and garden viewed from the upstairs window here)

All of Rebecca's bridesmaids had decided on elegant side bun chignons which were beautifully complimented by the headdress combs that Rebecca had chosen.Rebecca had decided on a beautiful half up hair do with ringlet curls and a gorgeous tiara. Rebecca's hair was so strong and thick that my GHD's went into hibernation mode twice whilst I was styling it! (To those of you who don't have GHD straighteners take it from me this shows how thick the hair was!) I had a great morning getting the girls ready and also Rebecca's Mum, it was a really great atmosphere and the girls were certainly full of high spirits for the rest of the day.
