Eastwood Park Wedding

Today was Rachel's wedding at the Gloucestershire venue Eastwood Park. I drove down to Wooton Under Edge to style the hair for Rachel, her bridesmaids and Mum. It's interesting how many people think they should have long hair for their wedding but Rachel is proof that a bride can look stunning without having to spend a year growing their hair. I styled Rachel's hair into soft ringlets and then added volume to the crown area. By pinning sections from the side back and up it created a really elegant and fun bridal hairstyle. A beautiful crystal tiara added the perfect fiunishing touch. For Rachel's Mum I created a stunning french pleat using the ends of the hair to form a tousled effect around the crown.
Plaits have become incredibly popular and Rachel's sister had spotted a style I had created for someone at a previous wedding and fell in love with the look. A great vintage (with a twist) style is made by plaiting the hair around the head and forming the ends into a chignon side bun.
The other bridesmaid had requested a half up hairstyle, I decided to give the style a different edge by weaving the hair at the back, this gives a half up style that added interest at the back so that it isn't just a half up look.


Whilst I was creating the hairstyles Clare ( Pure Pampering ) was creating the make-up and they looked amazing!
