Cripps Barn Bibury

I had a long drive this morning down Chimney Farm Barns in Oxfordshire to style hair for Katherine's wedding. They had rented this trio of wonderful barns set next to a nature reserve which allowed everyone space to get ready and stay before the wedding which was held at Cripps Barn near Bibury

This bridesmaid style was a very simple style but also beautifully elegant. Braided from the hairline across to one side the rest of the hair was smoothed and straightened. Once the styling was completed I fixed the jewelled headband into place.

Sophie Chamings was with me again today to create the make up for the wedding party and as ever created some stunning looks.

For Katherine's hair I styled it into a curled half up do, she had borrowed a friend's tiara and I added some lift around the crown to compliment it. This style is a great style for someone with a bob length style, it looks elegant without being too formal.

I also styled a couple of the other bridesmaids including one of the younger bridesmaids who had this great asymmetrical hairstyle. Normally she wears it sleek and straight so I suggested that we curled it into random waves and left it quite tousled looking, it really looked fab!
