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.
I have been to the Manor by the Lake wedding venue many times and each time, I have a relaxed time here. It is one of my favourite venues in Cheltenham town itself. The location of this venue is perfect in relation to where I live so the mornings here are always easy ones for me. Adeela my bride got married here last year. Adeela has incredibly thick and very naturally very tight curly hair and I have to say I have never come across such thick beautiful hair. Now I wish I had taken the before images so you could see for yourself how thick and beautiful her natural hair was.
But I couldn’t convince Adeela to wear it more naturally even though I was in love with her natural hair! She wanted straight hair and as smooth as we could get it without making look flat and causing damage. The trials went incredibly well and after that, all we had to worry about was the weather. Trust the English weather! it always does whatever it wants regardless ones wishes doesn’t it? Well it did rain on the day but luckily it didn’t just chuck it down like crazy all day. There was some sunshine.
Seeing the rain in the morning however didn’t put us off what we wanted to achieve for the day even though we had plan b wedding hairstyle in case we needed it. It was a huge success. Loved the results for the whole bridal party and it lasted through out the whole day! Yeah!!!! I happily share these wonderful images by Nadia Dixon. You can see more of Nadia work here NadiaDixon.com Thanks Adeela and Nadia for sharing your images with me here.
Charlotte was looking for something quite elegant and yet relaxed. Her dress was absolutely beautiful. It suited her so perfectly that the hairstyle really was just complimentary to the whole look. The flowers were added to give the hair a country vibe and I must say the morning was a huge success. For the girls, they wore floral summer dresses and she wanted them to be relaxed with their hairstyling too. Each bridesmaid was allowed to chose whatever tstyle they wanted to have. What a treat! She got married at the Stone barn in the Cotswolds which is a great wedding venue too. Charlotte has kindly shared these images below with me and they appear here because of the courtesy of Yellow Mustard Photography, charlottes wedding day photographer.
