Claire's Wedding at Hanley Swan & Moreton in Marsh

A drive over to Hanley Swan in Worcestershire took me to Claire's family home to style her hair for her wedding. Claire was getting married in the church in Hanley Swan and then the reception was being held at the stunning Cotswold venue The Manor House Moreton in Marsh.

When styling bridal hair styles most of the time the hair has to be curled to add body to the hair even if the finished style is sleek and not a curly look. The way I do this is either with heated rollers or GHD stylers. Creating the bridesmaids hairstyles for Claire's wedding I put their hair into rollers and heated bendy rollers.

The above style is a great twist on the half up hairstyle, here the hair has been curled and lift added to the crown area, then the hair is taken over to one side and diamante pins place into the curls.

The other bridesmaids were curled and styled into side chignons, this style is incredibly popular with bridal styling as it's a really great classical style that is very popular with vintage inspired weddings.
Claire's hair was curled with GHD's to add a more defined curl and then backcombed around the crown area to give balance to her tiara.

Whilst I was styling Claire's hair her photographer David Purslow was snapping away and caught this picture of me pulling a daft face whilst I added the final details to Claire's hair! Claire and her sister all ready for the church but grabbing a quick glass of bubbly, Clare Bryce (PurePampering) created the make up looks for the girls and they looked stunning!
