I had an a fantastic morning with bride Alex on her wedding day and loved carrying out her hair and makeup for her on such a special day. Alex is so vivacious, beautiful and so giving. She spent her morning getting ready at her parents home, which is actually a rarity these days. It was so calm, fun and very busy. Alex had a few bridesmaids, (her two beautiful sisters and some of her friends who have been on lifes wonderful journey with her). The wedding morning entailed lots of bridesmaids walking in and out, beautiful little dogs racing around with pink bows tied around their necks. Alexs’ mum, Kate, is a florist and wow, she created the most beautiful wedding bouquet for her daughter. A very talented florist, you really must check Kates website out, TangleandThyme. She is amazing!! I also think you should also check out the cake – The Hazlebury kitchen. The photographer on the day was Sally Forder, who is Assistant to Binky Nixon, again, check Sally out. What a fabulous lady, great fun to be around too, super talented. Now for some of the beautiful images of her wonderful wedding day.
This week I met lovely Sarah Buckingham, who married at the wonderful Leez Priory. Sarah booked me quite last minute so we did not get a chance to meet up for a trial beforehand. Sarah had such wonderful friends and family in her bridal party, they were such good fun. I had makeup artist Elaine Marie assist me, so the makeup, as usual, was just outstanding. Here are some of the images I took of the beautiful bride and bridal party.
I had the great pleasure of styling Tilly Keepers hair, at Francescas wedding. Tilly had lots of fine hair and was certain that her hair would not hold the curls. Tilly did not know my magic tricks and potions! I was thrilled to receive a message from Tilly a few days later saying she absolutely loved her hair and that the curls lasted three days. Tillys makeup was carried out by the wonderful Gemma Peace and the photographer for the day was one of my favourites…..Scott from Boutique Wedding Films , I recommend you definitely check him out before you secure your photographer.
I had the great pleasure of styling beautiful Francescas’ hair for her wedding day this week at Mulberry House. She has naturally beautiful curly hair but wanted the curls more defined. Here are some before and after photos of Francesca on her wedding morning.
Below are some other images of Francesca at her wedding trial. When the trial was complete, she was really happy, the curls were tight and defined and she looked so beautiful with the wedding crown in her hair, which she really wanted to wear on her wedding day. Straight after the trial, Francesca had arranged to have her dress fitting. Once she had put on her dress, she could see immediately that the curls were too tight and the flower crown did not go with her dress. On her wedding day we went for a much softer looser curl (above) and she wore a stunning simple hair accessory which complimented her hair and her dress.
I have to do a few shout outs here to Francescas amazing makeup artist. Her name is Gemma Peace and did a fabulous job styling everyone. Also, the flowers, they were unbelievable! Look at these! The entire venue looked this fantastic. These are created by Starry Eyed Weddings they really are something else! Just take a look at their website. Such a wonderful wedding and stunning wedding venue.Read More
I first met Caroline a few years ago when I carried out the hair and makeup for her sister, Alexandra. who married at Leez Priory a few years earlier. It was lovely to have the family book me again for their next big family wedding and to see Alexandra again, who now had two children and have moved to Australia. I enjoyed spending the wedding morning with Caroline, her three sisters and her mum. Caroline had lovely fine blonde hair, so we incorporated some hair extensions so that she could have a lovely half up hairstyle with lots of wonderful loose curls cascading down. Photos will be uploaded soon.
I had such a lovely morning with Louise and her wonderful bridal party, at Moor Hall. Louise had wonderful long red hair which was a delight to style. Her bridesmaids all had lovely long hair and decided on having the same hairstyle for the wedding ceremony. Here are some before and after photos.
Yesterday I had a lovely morning with Katharine and her family, preparing them all for the wedding at the stunning Leez Priory Wedding Venue. I used a very small amount of padding in Katharines hair just to ensure she kept the volume in front. Katharine had such beautiful hair and using schwarzkopf products ensured the curls stayed very soft and bouncy throughout the day. I styled Katharines hair using the GHD Mini Styler. For Katharine makeup, we kept it all very natural with extra focus on the eyes, using Mac Cosmetics and Charlotte Tilbury.
Bride and Bridesmaids Hair
Today I had the great pleasure of styling Bride Sarah and her bridesmaids for her wedding today at Gosfield Hall. Sarah had amazing fine hair, which is always my favourite to work with. We had to use a little padding to give some height from the front, but she had fabulous hair so I thoroughly enjoyed creating her style today. Below are some photos of Sarahs hair, also some before and after photos and also a before and after of one of her bridesmaids too.
Today I had a wonderful day preparing bride Jodie for her wedding day. Jodie was such a beautiful serene bride. At her trial we tried several styles and they all looked absolutely beautiful. We decided on an updo for her wedding today. I started getting Jodie and her bridal party ready in the Ladys Chambers, then we moved over to the amazing Rococo Bridal Room to do the finishing touches. Jodie looked so beautiful. I also carried out the hairstyling of her bridesmaids. I have attached some before and after photos of the bridesmaids and a photo of the beautiful Bride.
Wedding Hair and Makeup
I had a lovely day yesterday with Lynne, who married at Mulberry House. Lynne came for a trial last month and we decided an updo was going to be perfect for the wedding day, as her wedding dress was so beautiful and elegant. To achieve her desired hairstyle, I used some hair extensions to add volume and a little hair padding too whilst using the GHD Classic Styler and products from Kenra Professional. Her makeup was kept natural using products from Charlotte Tsilbury and Mac Cosmetics. The florist was the ever amazing TJ Designer Weddings.
I had the pleasure of styling Samanthas bridal party this weekend, at Barnston Lodge. At Samanthas trial we tried so many different styles but we knew that once we had tried an updo, that was definitely the way to go. Samantha brought her wedding dress along to the trial so tried her dress on after each style. I will put up some professional photos once the bride is in possession of these but for now, please find photos I took of the bride and bridesmaids. I styled all the hair on the wedding day and the makeup was carried out by Victoria Taylor. The amazing florist was Fleurtations Flowers.Read More

Jemma also had the most amazing photographer, called White Stag Weddings. Just look at these beautiful photos, she has captured Jemma perfectl. Here are just a handful of photos of beautiful Jemma on her wedding day. I styled Jemmas hair using Kenra Professional products, using the GHD Eclipse styler, to help create the large curls needed to create this beautiful hairstyle.
I had the pleasure of styling beautiful bride Laura and her Maid of Honour Amy and her bridesmaids at the stunning Crondon Park. They were so lucky with the weather, the sun shone all day long. I loved styling the girls, they both had wonderful hair and were looking for very different hairstyles. I styled their hair using Kenra Professional products and I used the classic GHD Styler to create the perfect loose waves in Amys hair.
