Sam's Wedding - Tetbury and Eastington Hall Gloucestershire

Today was an early start to drive down to a village just outside Bristol for Sam's bridal hair styling. I started by curling everyone's hair first with heated rollers before then creating the bridal styles.

Sam's look was an incredibly elegant curled up do that was very suited to the look she wanted for the day. The pictures here shows Clare ( Pure Pampering ) completing Sam's make up and the picture below then shows me attaching the veil, it always looks like a painful procedure!!



I loved this photo (above) we all said how stunning Sam looked, an incredible figure and she looked so beautiful in her amazing wedding gown.

The above picture is actually one that I took at the trial run a month or 2 before, it shows how intricate the detail was at the back, the curls look great looping around each other.

Sam's mum was next in the line up of people to be styled. She had great hair that suited a flicked blow dry to add volume, the result was a youthful mother of the bride, a really fresh look which was complimented perfectly by the lilac coloured fascinator.
Sam's bridesmaids all wanted to have side bun chignons, this photo shows them all once I'd finished styling them and they had changed into their stunning purple dresses.


The above picture shows one of the bridesmaids hairstyles in the side bun style which was created completely with clip in hair extensions. The hair was actually too short to do this style on it's own but by clipping in extensions I was able to create the same look as the others. Clip in extensions are perfect for adding volume and length when creating bridal up do's for weddings and I would defy anyone to know that this style wasn't done with just her own hair, the blend was so natural.
This last picture shows Sam's sister Jo, her hair had big bold flashes of blonde colour through it which actually worked brilliantly with this 'messy' bun up do.

Clare and I finished just as the vintage cars were arriving to take the girls off to the wedding at Tetbury church and reception at Eastington Hall near Stroud.
