In the UK we are particularly blessed with a plethora of incredible and diverse wedding venues and quite regularly I write about some of the CWH favourites. Claire has got very exciting plans afoot right now which include expanding her wedding hair and make up business into Norfolk. You may remember earlier this year Claire got engaged: her fiancee is from Norfolk so it only makes sense to extend her business there. Watch this space for further developments. I have already written about some of Claire’s favourite Norfolk venues but later in the blog I will be writing about some more. Meanwhile, as always here is a round up of just a sample of some of the incredible work from our talented team of stylists.
Our skilled stylist Zara who covers the Hampshire area was really busy at Philippa’s wedding. She created gorgeous wedding day hair for the bride, 4 adult bridesmaids and the mother of the bride! Here are the stunning results.
Philippa chose beautiful Cain Manor an exquisite, Elizabethan, oak-framed manor house near Farnham in Surrey for her big day.This lovely venue is set within 30 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds and has commanding stunning views over Surrey’s Golden Valley.
Talented Sussex bases stylist Elloise always has such varied and interesting photos. Here are a couple from the last week. Here is pretty bride Kim, Elloise designed lovely hair and make up.
Elloise worked on a shoot last week for Pick Up Sticks Vintage which is based in Brighton and created this stunning look.
Our incredible creative director Claire worked at a wedding for the beautiful Ionaiza in Kings Lyn. She got wed at the Globe Hotel.
Claire created a really natural looking make up for her with a gorgeous up do. Ionaiza looks really gorgeous.
