Kingscote Barn near Tetbury Wedding Hair

One of my all time favourite wedding venues has to be Kingscote Barn near to the Cotswold town Tetbury.

The venue is simply stunning set in a hidden valley, secluded but easily accessible from most areas and you will find it hard to meet nicer members of staff!
The girls were staying in Spring Cottage which is one of the venues self catering cottages, it's a great place for the mornings preparations.

Both the mother of the bride and mother of the groom were very excited, I blow dried their hair and added lots of volume to withstand the stunning hats that they had chosen. Mother of the brides hat had even been spotted at the recent royal wedding!!


One of the bridesmaids had a short bob which we decided to give an elegant sleek feel to. The hair was blow dried, given body around the crown and then pearl gems added below.

This side bun chignon is a very elegant style that works well for bridal hair, it lasts brilliantly so work well with hair that would ordinarily drop out a style easily. It looks timeless!

For Katherine's hair I curled it and then styled it partly up with a detailed curl design below the crown.
The curls around the back gave a beautiful tousled feel to the look. These can be created in several ways but I used a combination of heated rollers and then finished the look by adding a few firmer curls with GHD's.

Clare Bryce from Pure Pampering was created stunning make up for Katherine, the Mums and bridesmaids.


The finishing touch for Katherine's hair was this detailed crystal comb, a very elegant touch to a simple hairstyle.
