Wedding Hair Styling at The Rectory Hotel Crudwell

I had a drive through the Cotswolds this morning to get to the lovely village of Crudwell in Wiltshire. Lucy was the bride I was styling hair for this morning and her wedding was being held at the beautiful Rectory Hotel. This is a lovely hotel with beautiful interiors and a lovely homely feel. It even had these wonderful floral pigs on the lawn!!

I was greeted by Lucy and her Mum as I arrived, the hotel is so relaxed that it feels like your own home ( a rather posh country retreat type home!! ) Setting up in one of the stunning bedrooms I soon started styling the hair for everyone. Lucy and her sister Katie both had heated rollers in their hair to add body and curl. I then styled Lucy's hair into this beautiful vintage style chignon ... Audrey Hepburn eat your heart out!

Katie's hair was styled into a deconstructed chignon to give a less formal look to the Lucy's look. I gave the hair a small amount of backcombing before smoothing it over and pinning the side up into a casual chignon with tendrils.

Lucy's Mum made the bouquets, button holes and this amazing wedding cake that she was icing half way through the morning..... an amazing lady!

Lucy had come up with a great idea for the table decorations. each table had a theme of a different author, there were books for that author and props for guests to dress up in! Above shows JKRowling with Harry Potter glasses and wands. Below is the Ian Fleming table with James Bond guns and bow ties! Such a fab idea...
