Here are some wonderful photographs by Barney Walters Photography of a country wedding I worked on earlier in the year. The bride and groom were super lucky with the weather and had bright sunshine all day! In the end, the lovely bride Laura decided on a plaited but structured updo complemented by defined eye make-up and natural glowing complexion.
Thanks very much to Barney too for taking the time to share the pictures with me - they're super!
Congratulations to the gorgeous couple!

Here are some beautiful photographs courtesy of Rosanna Hancock Photography of a wonderful wedding I worked on in Buckinghamshire.
The bride decided on a textured, relaxed and romantic hair style, adorned with plaits and glowing, radiant make-up.
The bride and her bridesmaids chose to wear some lovely handmade flower garlands in their hair too, which worked wonderfully with the rustic, English country wedding style.
Here are a selection of some of the lovely images. Enjoy!

Here are a selection of some of the wonderful weddings I have been involved in over the past few months. The locations ranged from sunny Surrey, to London's Kensington and leafy Herefordshire. I endeavour to keep each look personal to the bride, reflecting their individual style and the style of the wedding. So, as you'll see, the hairstyles range from sleek and sophisticated to gorgeously tousled and relaxed and the make-up from natural and radiant to smokey and defined, each one just as beautiful as the last:

It's been another busy, fun summer, full of happy brides and stunning locations! I've created countless hairstyles, ranging from sleek, low buns to vintage updos, plaited chignons and everything in between! Here are some of my highlights (click to enlarge):
Aimee's sleek and sophisticated updo for her Hampshire wedding at The Elvetham Hotel.

Earlier on in the year I collaborated with Coast and the lovely girls at Photography by Jude and Bea on a beautiful photoshoot at Hendall Manor Farm. This month, Your Surrey Wedding has featured one of their favourite photos from the shoot on their front cover! Take a look below:
I've also included a few of my favourite pictures from the day too! Enjoy!
Here is a sneak peek of some the beautiful brides I've worked with over the past few weeks:
The styles ranged from vintage and classic to bohemian and textured. I've also been lucky enough to work at some of London's best locations (one of the perks of the job!), such as the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, the Kensington Hotel in Queensgate and the Petersham Hotel in Richmond, each one as luxurious and splendid as the last.
I hope you enjoy the pictures. Stay tuned for more very soon! For day-to-day updates follow me here on Instagram.
As most of you will probably be aware, at the beginning of November I was awarded Best Wedding Hair Stylist of 2013. I have since had the pleasure of being invited to the glamorous and exclusive Savoy Hotel where I received my award.
It was a wonderful afternoon and a fantastic opportunity for all the winners to meet one another and celebrate together! We were also all treated to an exquisite meal at The Savoy's in-house restaurant. We were definitely spoilt and lots of bubbly was enjoyed by all!
Here are some of the professional shots taken on the day:
