Gosfield Hall Weddings – Wedding Hair
I first met Victoria two months ago, when she came to me for her wedding hair trial. Victorias’ hair was quite short and blonde and very fine. She wanted her hair to have lots of volume on her wedding day so we tried lots of different techniques with an array of different coloured hair extensions, which I keep here, to find the perfect match for her hair. We found the perfect set and then styled her hair beautifully.
Victoria kept in touch with me throughout the entire time from first contact right through to her wedding day which was yesterday. It was a very early start as Victoria had a large bridal party so we had to get started by 7.15am for a 1.30pm wedding. I styled the bride, bridesmaids and mother of bride and flower girl, so it was a very busy fun filled morning. Victoria actually called me before I left my home at 6.30am, to ask if I had any calpol as her daughter was a little unwell and there were no shops open. Having four children of my own, I had plenty in supply! Her beautiful daughter was soon back to her happy little self shortly after receiving the medicine.
Victoria decided to hire the extensions from me for her wedding day, as she knew it would be unlikely that she would wear them again. Her hair looked absolutely stunning yesterday. I then went on to style the three adult bridesmaids, mother of the bride and flower girl, all with plenty of time left over for them all to get dressed in a very calm relaxing environment. The photos I have taken are by me, but I look forward to posting professional photos as soon as Victoria has received these. Thank you Victoria for being a fabulous bride, you were so calm. It was also lovely to work alongside the lovely Hayley and Tegan who were Front of House and looking after her throughout the day. Good luck Victoria and I hope you have the most amazing honeymoon in Jamiaca! Gail xx
