Downton Abbey inspired Bridal hair at Kingscote Barn


Another wedding for me at Kingscote Barn near Tetbury and Stroud, I always rave about this venue but with just reason, not only is it one of the nicest converted Cotswold barns I know but it is expertly run by the most superb team, Kelly, Rachel and Laura always make sure that every wedding is looked after with 5 star attention!

Jo asked me to create a Downton Abbey inspired hair do for her wedding and having explored photos together we created this hairstyle which was based around Lady Mary Crawley's look on the programme.


Jo and her team of bridesmaids were getting ready in 'The Byre' which is the new accommodation at Kingscote Barn, a beautifully converted old barn it now provides beautiful rooms for brides before and after their wedding celebrations.


Jo's hair suited this vintage style superbly, using heated rollers to give it extra body and a wave I then pinned it low into the nape of the neck in curls.




 Styling the bridesmaids hair I created an elegant chignon for one and a tousled up do for the other, both styles are very popular choices for weddings.



Once I had completed Jo's hair she even found time to do her mother's make up for her! 
It was a great morning and I also had the pleasure of meeting Sam a great wedding photographer who I hadn't met before http://www.samantha-j.co.uk 

Jo's wedding has now been featured on the 'English Wedding Blog
