Catching up with updating the wedding hair blog, today's post is from the beginning of December. People often ask which are the busiest months for me with bridal hairstyling, December 2011 certainly proved to be one of my busiest months!
I travelled down to Wiltshire to style Amy's wedding hair at the beautiful 'Guyers House' in Corsham, a lovely boutique hotel in a glorious secluded setting.
I started out with styling the bridesmaids hair, both bridesmaids had asked for a french roll style, a classical and timeless style which I then finished with antique cream roses individually pinned into place.
For Amy we went down the 'Classical' vintage path, there is a real movement in bridal styling towards more classical vintage hair styling, the shabby chic look is still very much in vogue but this more refined vintage look is becoming stronger. Think Downton Abbey, fur wraps, hand finished lace edging to dresses and veils, elegant Edwardian hair styling and you get the idea!
The last few moments of getting a bridal party ready for the ceremony very often ends in an 'all hands to the deck' moment, here Amy is being laced into her stunning gown whilst Clare Bryce (Pure Pampering Gloucester) applies a final sweep of gloss.
All finished and ready to go the bridesmaids looking fabulous in beautiful 'petrol blue' gowns.....
