Sarah's Wedding at Minchinhampton & Westonbirt School

Today was Sarah's wedding at Minchinhampton church in Gloucestershire which is just a mile or so from where I live in Stroud so I had a very leisurely start to the morning driving 2 minutes from my home to her parents home on Rodborough Common. After the wedding ceremony Sarah's reception was to be held at the stunning Westonbirt School near Tetbury

A team of bridesmaids awaited my arrival ready for hair styling, I loved this style which was a half up hair do with vintage inspired clips which I placed in for detail below the crown area.

 Clare Bryce ( was with me again today doing the make up for the girls, it's always great to work with Clare, she's such a brilliant make up artist and great fun!

Sarah went for a romantically curled hair style for her wedding with a vintage inspired side clip.

I curled her hair with rollers first to add body then pinned it into tousled curls at the back of the head and twisted sides to keep the style looking soft and romantic.

Another style I created for one of the bridesmaids was this fantastic 'Waterfall Braid' a really great style if someone wants detail but doesn't want their hair to be put up. The braid is woven through the hair to leave pieces of hair falling below.
