Hatherley Manor / The Swan Bibury Wedding Hair

It was a cold start this morning but the weather had held off enough to make the journey safely to Hatherley Manor to style Rachel's hair for her wedding. She was getting ready at Hatherley Manor (Near Gloucester) but the wedding was held at the village of Sandhurst and the reception at The Swan Hotel in Bibury in the Cotswolds.I started by styling the bridesmaids hair into elegant updo's which were then adorned with really gorgeous fabric roses with delicate feathers. These matched the beautiful deep red dresses perfectly and looked very festive!Rachel's husband to be was very against her having her hair curled or put up but we reached a great compromise by giving the hair texture with GHD stylers so that it had some movement but not a defined curl. To compliment the jewelled headband that Rachel had chosen I gave the crown a small amount of body so that the band would sit snuggly and would be part of the style rather than just fitted afterwards.

Clare ( Pure Pampering ) arrived as I was finishing the bridesmaids hair to do their make up and Matt Davis (FAB photographer!) arrived to perform gymnastics whilst taking photos! (He does seem to bend over backwards to get the perfect shot!) The girls were great fun to be with and we had a really fab morning getting them ready for the day ahead, Clare and I left as the girls were helping Rachel into her dress!

P.S

A couple of pictures from Matt Davis' blog of me getting the girls ready and Rachel and her husband on the bridge at Bibury.
