Clearwell Castle Wedding hair

What a fantastic morning for a wedding at this stunning location! I am always impressed by the entrance to Clearwell Castle, doesn't it look amazing, you can imagine a knight on horseback coming through this arch at any moment! Anyway...... today was Lauren's wedding and I had a great time along with make up artist Sarah Brock getting the girls ready for the big day.
All the girls had fresh flowers for their hair and it was lovely to create these styles and weave the fresh flowers through.
Most of the styles were formed by adding body to the hair with heated rollers, these really give the hair loads of body and shine, the above picture shows a beautiful french roll which was the curled up, the flowers sit in the crease of the french pleat beautifully.

Lauren (the bride) wanted a half up style which really suited her, once I had curled it with GHD's I pinned sections up and created some lift around the crown area and curled detail at the back.

Sarah Brock ( ) was creating the make up for the girls today and she did an incredible job, they looked amazing. This is the second time that Sarah and I have worked together on a wedding and it was great to see her again today.

The back of Lauren's hair shows the curled detail and fresh flowers which I pinned in after.

Once I'd pinned the flowers into place I fixed the tiara and suddenly Lauren looked every bit the stunning bride!

The last one to receive my styling was small bridesmaid Megan. It's always difficult knowing what to do to a child's hair for a wedding, I think this style is great as it looks bridal and styled enough without making her look too grown up. I plaited the hair on either side and then finished it by twisting the ends into a bun / chignon and then fixing fresh flowers into the back.

The girls looked great and I left as they finished getting ready for their big day.
