Clearwell Castle Winter Wedding

I had an incredibly early start this morning as I had to get up at 5am to travel to Clearwell Castle in the Forest of Dean to style Kathryn's hair for her wedding.
Adding body with heated rollers and creating detail with GHD's to personalise the style I pinned Kathryn's hair into a very elegant bridal updo. To add the finishing touch to the hair I wove individual wired rose buds inbetween the curls ... stunning!

I was also styling the hair for the 4 bridesmaids. Chief bridesmaid Fearne had a gorgeous graduated bob which I blow dryed then twisted one side back into a roll adding a crystal comb to finish this very simple elegant style.
The other 3 bridesmaids all had long hair which I styled into elegant side chignons with diamante combs.The girls posed for official photos on the four poster bed in the bridal suite so standing by the side of the photographer I took a quick snap! I also styled Kathryn's Mum's hair, blow drying it to add lots of body so it would hold up once she removed her hat later on.
Double checking everyones hair do and adding final touches and a extra spritz of hairspray I left the girls to finish getting ready for the rest of the day....

Bowden Hall Wedding

I was styling Mary's hair this morning for her wedding, the ceremony was at Hardwicke church near Gloucester then the reception was held at the beautiful Bowden Hall hotel in Upton Saint Leonards.
Mary had beautiful hair and perfect for the look we chose as she had lots of luscious brunette hair which looked great in this curled bridal hairstyle.To create a soft look and extra detail, I twisted the sides of the hair into a rolled twist before finishing it at the back with detailed curls and securing with a diamante jewelled clip.Mary had also chosen a beautiful jewelled tiara which added a fantastic finish to the fairytale look! I also styled Mary's Mum's hair giving it a sleek elegant finish by styling it with heated rollers first to give it lots of body.
