Stanton House Swindon ... Wedding Hair Styling


Wedding hair styling normally means an early start but today involved a crazy alarm call of 4am!! I was styling hair for Julie's wedding at Stanton House Hotel near Swindon. I arrived whilst it was still dark and there were still stars in the sky....dedicated or what! :)

Stanton House is a beautiful Cotswold stone Manor house in the Wiltshire countryside. A really beautiful hotel in a stunning location, perfect for a wedding with a gorgeous parish church within the grounds.




I carried out a trial run for Julie and her 3 bridesmaids way back in May. Julie's hair was styled into this classical bridal curled updo, having curled it first I twisted the individual sections up onto the crown area and pinned. Once the pieces were all curled and pinned into entwining curls I fixed the crystal tiara band and veil into place.



Both of Julie's sisters were bridesmaids, I was set an amazing challenge to curl and style their hair which was almost waist length! They looked fantastic with the hair curled and pinned up and cascading over to the one side.



The third bridesmaid had a chignon side bun hair style, a truly classical and very now hair style for weddings!

Clare from Pure Pampering was creating the make up for the girls today, she arrived a couple of hours after I did at around 8am and set to work making the girls look stunning!


We left just as the girls were about to walk over to the church next to the hotel, guests were arriving and the incredible weather made it feel like a summer day!
