A beautiful American Wedding in an English setting!

Welcome to the latest update on 'The Real Wedding Hair Blog'....I have some beautiful photos to share with you today from photographer Joe Short of Casamento

These beautiful photographs are from Melinda's wedding which I styled hair for at The Manor House   Castle Coombe in The Cotswolds.


Melinda her family and bridesmaids had flown over from America earlier in the week for the wedding at The Manor House which provides one of the most beautiful settings in the UK for a wedding, a truly wonderful 5 star experience! 

Styling hair for the girls was a LOT of fun, we had a mad few hours getting everyone ready, I created different hairstyles for the bridesmaids, some up, some down, some in side bun chignons....all VERY GLAM!

Bride Melinda wanted an elegant look to compliment her Jenny Packham dress, as it was halter neck we decided on keeping the hair down but styled to one side. I braided the side and back bringing it around and curling it across the right shoulder into a Hollywood wave.

Make up artist Sophie Chamings was with me today. Sophie is a Cheltenham based make up artist who specialises in bridal make up, we work a lot together and she creates stunning looks! The soft dewy bridal look that she created for Melinda complimented her perfectly.

Melinda really was a stunning bride, effortlessly elegant and her wedding oozed style and sophistication. The 14th Century Manor House Hotel is set in a wooded valley next to the centre of the historic village of Castle Combe, one of the most idyllic romantic settings you can have for a wedding.

All of the wedding details from the flowers to the the organza veils softly draped around the garden pavilion were exquisite.

My thanks again to Joe from Casamento for these beautiful photographs, I think you'll all agree that they are stunning images of a beautiful Cotswolds wedding.
