Welcome to the latest update from 'The Real Wedding Hair Blog'...with Christmas hovering just around the corner I knew I'd get some great winter festive weddings and today's gorgeous wedding in the Cotswolds didn't disappoint!
I spent a great morning over at The Swan Hotel in Bibury styling hair for Katie, her Grandmother and bridesmaids. Having arrived in the dark we gradually watched the sun rise over this quintessentially idyllic Cotswold scene viewed through this beautiful window!
The setting of Bibury with the river running through the centre of the village creates a chocolate box scene, the hotels garden wraps around the river and in summer it provides a perfect location for an outdoor wedding ceremony.
Always a classical bridal hairstyle we decided on a side swept hair do for the bridesmaids which was a great contrast to bride Katie's textured up do!
I love to use hot rollers to style hair for weddings as they add lots of volume and create the perfect curl.
Having styled the bridesmaids hair into side swept hairstyles and blow dried Grandma's hair with a voluminous look, I then turned my attention onto the gorgeous Katie.
Adding lots of texture with rollers and then backcombing the root of the hair I twisted pieces into place
and pinned into place before finishing with pearl pins for decoration.
The Swan Hotel is a great place for a wedding, it offers a stunning venue in the middle of the Cotswolds and you have to agree that the presentation of the ceremony room is quite outstanding!
