Gemma's Wedding Hair Styling at Cheltenham's Manor by the Lake

I was even more excited than usual to share this wedding with you on The Real Wedding Hair Blog. I was styling hair for today's bride Gemma who was getting married at The Manor by the Lake in Cheltenham, a venue that has recently been taken over by new owners with great plans to make it one of the areas premier wedding venues. I certainly wasn't disappointed!

A beautiful gothic style mansion, it's set in amazing grounds with glorious gardens just perfect for after wedding drinks! Ornate interiors are the perfect setting for your dream day!

The beautiful room above is where the ceremony took place, a gorgeous room with carved wooden paneling and ornate carved ceiling. 

Gemma's chosen bridal hair style was an elegant curled up do, created with heated rollers and then pinned up into formed curls with a small amount of backcombing around the crown area to balance the style.

Clare Bryce from Pure Pampering was in charge of styling the make up for the wedding party today. Clare is a great make up artist and makes everyone look naturally beautiful with mineral based make up.

Once curled and style into place Gemma's hair was complimented with beautiful diamante pins.
