COVID-19 Update
We were regrettably temporarily closed due to Covid 19, but are now reliably informed that we can go ahead with small weddings and will later on hope to return to normal. 2021 is already fairly well booked with brides and grooms who have rescheduled from this year so book early if possible. Weekday bookings will be especially welcomed and may well be discounted, dependent on date and venue - I'd love to hear from you.

Full Description
I'm a highly experienced award winning wedding hairdresser and lecturer in hair and make up artistry - let me help you make your day extra special! Your photos will last a lifetime so be sure you look and feel your best and enjoy a fun and relaxed wedding morning. I love my job and I'm so lucky to be part of a bride's wedding day. I specialise in long hair and hair up, wedding, special occasion, editorial and makeovers. I'm also a qualified make up artist. My signature style is soft, relaxed, romantic and boho. A dab hand at organising bridal parties, fixing drinks, doing up dresses and jewellery and generally helping keep brides and mums calm, I'm a handy extra pair of hands for your day :) I favour cruelty free and vegan products, but always pick the best for the job. I can travel to your hotel or venue, or work from my home on the edge of Bath. I'm also free for destination weddings and 'out of area' weddings. If you're looking for the ultimate pamper and luxury, why not choose a "whole day" package for yourself and your Bridal party for either hair and make up "top ups" or maybe go glam for the evening (Prices on application).

A glorious day at Castle Combe Manor
Hi Sam, hope you're well? Just to say a massive thank you for all your efforts on Saturday. Once we got to the venue (when I'd finally got that dress on!) everything went pretty much brilliantly. It was a glorious day and everyone said they thought I looked beautiful - very much due to you! Here are a couple of unofficial pics, I'll send the proper ones when they come through. Thank you for everything, Rachael x

Absolutely perfect
Thank you so much for yesterday, you were such a lovely calming presence and my hair was absolutely perfect. I got at least as many compliments about it as the dress! Martin and I had the most perfect day, and you were right - I didn't even notice the other people in the ceremony xx

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

In 2017, for a fab Bath Assembly Rooms wedding getting ready in a huge Georgian house - the most laid back bride running round taking photos in her socks, dressing gown and rollers, while we prepped 14 people including 11 bridesmaids for Hair and make up! When they walked to the venue they turned so many heads! a fantastic memory 😊

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed, Romantic, Soft, Elegant, Professional

What about your business are you most proud of?

The referrals, the amazingly reviews and my lovely brides and brides to be, being nominated for Bath hairdresser of the year by colleagues, being featured in 4 leading magazines in 2017 and 2018. Building up my business and having won Bridal Hairdresser of the Year Bristol and Somerset last week (November 2019).

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Enjoy every moment, the things you thought would be so important and the little things that go wrong on the day will be the things you laugh at later on

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Polaroid photos for guests to take away, doggy guests at weddings

Describe your typical process with a couple.

First contact and hopefully an informal chat on the phone about your requirements, date, time, number in wedding party etc, a free face to face consultation if required, then a small deposit to hold the date - dates suggested for your trial (between 4 months to six weeks before your wedding) and friendly advice pre wedding At the trial we will look at pictures of the dress and chat about what you're hoping to achieve, most suitable hair accessories for the style, and whether you wish to wear a veil, then create a variety of looks to suit, these will then be photographed and notes taken. If having a make up trial you can do this at the same time or on another occasion, it's up to you.

What do you love most about your job?

Everything - but mainly seeing the happy faces leaving all ready for the big day and the hugs I receive when brides look in the mirror

What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?

If your hair is totally natural, and somewhat fine, it often helps to have a few very fine highlights to add some 3D depth and thickness to your style, and really enhances the total look. Temporary extensions can easily be added for bulk or length on the day.

How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?

I'm a very calm person and very used to calming brides too, they often say that I helped to keep them feeling chilled on their wedding day!

What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?

Give your maid of honour or mum a small can of hairspray, a few hairgrips and a top up lipstick for later on. Wear some beautiful perfume and a Very Big Smile :)
