I should have shared Laura`s wedding ages ago. Laura`s wedding was in Tetbury at Kingscote Barn in 2017. It`s late I know. I am really behind in catching up with what I need to share with you but never the less I will share it with you now.
Laura had long hair and wanted to wear it mostly down and with loose waves. More like a Hollywood wavy style. The style is really pretty and feminine which I really love but also quite a challenging style to keep intact if you are fighting against the weather. Yes the weather among other things is very important in deciding on how you are going to be able to deliver the requested hair style and how best to keep the style to last well throughout the harsh weather.
Well, when Laura`s wedding day arrived, you probably already know what I am going to say. Yes, the weather was rainy and windy and on top of that, I wasn’t feeling very well in myself on that morning. Of course, forgetting how I felt, I cracked on with the job like nothing else mattered at all. Yes I did my job like my life depended on it! I really mean that. I doubt Laura had an inkling that I wasn’t well.
My magic brushes, hands and rollers did the job beautifully. After a few hours, the bride looked just stunning and full of smiles. I must say that even now looking at Laura`s wedding wavy hair style, I couldn’t have been more proud. I think I nailed it. Yes sorry to sound cheeky. But now and again, I do pinch myself. The style lasted quite well through the very windy and rainy day and I couldn’t have been happier. I hope you will agree. If you like her style, get in touch, maybe I can help. Thanks for the read and enjoy these wonderful images from Gemma Gaskins Photography. P.s Lauras make up was by Elle Hitchens.
I haven’t blogged for ages because it`s been a bit manic and so haven’t had the time to blog away. Anyway, very quickly, I would like to introduce you to Signature head piece collection which is an exclusive range of colourful bespoke accessories that you will truly cherish for a long time after your wedding as they can b worn on any other special occasion. I won`t bore you with too much information for now as I can explain better in person should you be interested so please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Enjoy the images below and in meantime keep your eyes open for professional images of theses types of hair accessories on some of my brides. For more information please get in touch.
I saw Amber for her trial which was pretty straight forward.That said, we had to choose from a few options of the how curly/wavy we should go. Amber`s hair is naturally wavy and in an untamed state, it is a perfect bohemian wave. I loved her natural hair wave. I wish I had that kind of wave to my hair. You see, like most people (those I have met) I too desire to have beautiful hair like Ambers! I was trying to sell her the idea that her natural wave was really pretty if tamed would look fab too and she wasn’t convinced and so was not having any of that.
In my image of her trial below, her hair was styled in two different ways. You can see that the hair on the right hand side is different to the hair on the left hand side. Amber thought both of these were not what she had in mind as she preferred a much smoother and straighter GHD Curl which we did and she was perfectly happy.
On her wedding day, Amber was absolutely chilled even though on the morning we had both rushed through the Cheltenham morning traffic to try and get to the venue on time! The 9:00 am start was really a late morning for me. So I had an unusual lie in bed as well as a cup of tea and toast before starting the day! I normally don’t manage that as generally speaking I have to wake up at 4/5 am to be have an early start of either 5:00am or 6:00am on a normal wedding day!!! So having a 9:00 am start was pretty late and bliss for me. The day was a beautiful sunny day and I couldn’t haves asked for better weather for Amber`s hair down style. The whole hair styling session for her and for her and her bridesmaids was a success and all their hair was styled to suit them.
Thank you so so much for all of your hard work. I couldn't have been happier with how everyone's hair looked and you are such a lovely person too. I've attached a picture for you. I love it. :) Thank you!! :D”
I am hoping that you are all well and enjoying this heat wave. Until now, I didn’t know there was such a thing as heat wave in England! May be now with these recent temperatures I should really believe that yes England too can have a heat wave! I have just got back from a wedding this afternoon and I was sweating like a pig. Not that I have ever seen a sweaty pig but that is one of the expressions that I have picked up since I have been I England. Anyway, I am really behind in updating you on my wedding hairstyle blog. Needless to say time is very limited. But, I have 2 hours to rest this afternoon. Even though I will need as much time as possible for the much needed rest, I am going to share these two wonderful weddings for now. I say for now because I have many more to share but will only mange 2 for now until may be in the winter when I expect to have a longer break! So I hope you like these. One is from last year and another from this year. Below is the first
Camilla`s wedding at Cripps barn wedding-Cotswolds last year.
Having Camilla and her bridesmaids was such a treat. Do you know, I am so lucky that generally speaking, most of the brides to be that chose to have me for their wedding day are really genuinely very nice people. On Camilla`s wedding day( September last year), the atmosphere was so relaxed time passed by as if in a dream and Anna the photographer being relaxed herself added to the vibe of the day. It was the first time I had worked with Anna and she is really good at what she does. You won`t notice her as she snaps away. I was of course on call for hair and Emily on call for make-up. Emily as usual did a great job . I think it was great team work on the day and very thing went smoothly. I will let the wonderful images form Anna showing our work speak for themselves. The wedding was blogged on Whimsical wonderland weddings.

Below is a wonderful message from Camilla
“ Hi Sheena
Thank you so much! My hair was amazing, I absolutely loved it! I don't know what I would have done without you. The girls also looked incredible and we all had so many lovely comments all day. I was singing your praises to everyone! You are so very talented :D
By the end of the night we were all a little worse for wear but somehow our hair (and makeup) looked like they had just been done... I don't know how you and Emily did it! It was such a perfect day from start to finish, I'm still buzzing! Thank you so much for helping to make it so wonderful!
Thank you again! Camilla xx”
Thank you very much for taking your time to read my blog.
Finally, I am back to work! I wish I had more time off but I am really excited bout 2018. To share a starter for the year, here is this beautiful bride and her bridesmaids whose wedding I was lucky enough to be part of. Her wedding was at Cripps Barn-Cotswolds. The bride`s hair was styled with absolute precision. The vibrant colours of the floral hair accessory were simply the perfect finishing touch to her wedding style.
If you like her style and you are getting married, get in touch. I hope you will enjoy these wonderful images by Sue Ann photography. Sue is amazing at what she does. I shall hope to work with her again and thanks for visiting my website. Sheena.
