Swan Hotel Bibury / Cripps Barn Wedding

Today was the first of 5 weddings that I have this December! It always a busy month with people getting ready for Christmas but with the additional weddings I'm rather flat out!!

I had a nice drive over to the gorgeous Cotswold village of Bibury to style hair for Jessica's wedding at Cripps Barn.
Jess had rented one of the cottages belonging to The Swan hotel Bibury. It was a beautifully designed cottage offering a great space for Jess and her bridesmaids to get ready for the wedding.I styled the 4 bridesmaids first, designing different chignon style hairdo's for the girls.The girls all had different diamante style clips including this fantastic butterfly clip, a really unusual and glamorous hair jewel.Jess and I decided on an intertwined side chignon style when we met earlier in the year for her trial run. She had gorgeous brunnette hair which was perfect for this style and she was very good in growing her fringe longer so that we could ensure it was softly clipped away from her face.Jess had chosen a beautiful vintage inspired hair clip, very glamorous! She had also decided to follow family traditon by wearing her Grandmother's veil which had also been worn by her Mum, Sister and Cousin at their weddings, it was a really beautiful vintage veil which her Mum sat sewing a comb onto minutes before I attached it to Jess's hairstyle.Jess had decided that she wanted very vibrant flowers for her wedding and we were all well impressed by the jewel coloured bouquets, they felt very festive

I added the last few hair pins and finishing touches before leaving the girls to get ready for a great day ahead.
