Hair for a boho bridal shoot

One of the things I love most about my job is the people I get to meet. Not only brides and their families on the wedding day but suppliers too.

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of joining a few talented creative for a small intimate bridal portfolio shoot at Herbert Hall Winery.

Together we created a boho bridal look, perfect for any brides wanting a more festival, outdoor vibe for their big day.

For the hair I prepped with salt spray and curled to create a beachy style wave. My models highlighted hair worked perfectly with the curls , showcasing the different tones and textures within her hair.

It’s really important that brides consider their hair colour for their wedding hair choices. Lots of images you find online may be of blonde, multi tonal hair as often this is the colour that will show off the detail and intricacy of a style. Sometimes hair that is one colour, brown for example, can mean that detail can be lost. When searching for your own wedding hair inspiration try and find something that is created on a hair colour similar to that of your own. This way, it means that you can see a more true reflection of what the same style might look like in your own hair.

To give a relaxed boho vibe to the style I added lots of texture and height by twisting and wrapping the hair. This complimented the flower crown that we later added and meant that the second hair piece, a vine from LORNA TIARA could weave amongst the folds of the hair.

I also added braiding in a variety of forms. With a style like this it’s fun to experiment with various patterns within the hair. Again, this not only shows off the various colours, but really personalises a style for a bride. No two brides are the same and no two hairstyles I create are exactly the same either.

Wedding Trials and Preview Sessions


Can you believe that it’s already March!? I am well underway with the bridal trials for all my 2017 summer brides now and it is so exciting to be meeting so many of you in preparation for your big day! I’m often asked what a preview session involves and what you can expect so I thought I’d put together some pointers for you. Although it is not a requirement for you to have a preview session it really does gives us a chance to work together and perfect your bridal style – plus it’s so exciting for you to see exactly what you’re actually going to look like!! If you have any questions then please do get in touch, you are more than welcome to drop me an email at but in the mean time, here are a few of my most commonly asked questions for you …


  • So what happens at the bridal preview session? The point of the preview session is for us to get some time to talk about what you want from your big day. We start with a consultation, you can tell me a little about the plans you have for the day, what you’re wearing, your theme and colour choices – and together we can develop an understanding as to what you want to look like and how we are going to make your look compliment all of these other factors. The session lasts around 90 minutes for hair or make up, and around 2 1/2 hours for both. We will create your look, based on the things we discuss, so you can actually see what you’re going to look like on the day itself!
  • Do I need to bring anything? A lot of brides come prepared with a Pintrest board so I can instantly see what ‘kind’ of wedding style you are working towards. If you don’t have Pintrest – fear not! You can show me some pictures of things you like – and especially things that you don’t! This is really important as it leads me to gain a much better understanding of what you expect and require from me. Oh, and if you have a veil or accessories then bring them along too!
  • Shall I wash my hair or take off my make up? Please come to your make up preview appointment make up free. This allows me to see your skin, your natural colouring etc and means that we can proceed straight into make up application. In regards to washing your hair , ‘day old’ hair is easier for me to style, really clean and soft hair can mean that I end up having to use a lot more product to manipulate it into the shape I want. Please do not curl or straighten your hair before your appointment, let it dry into it’s natural state if you can and then i can take it from there!
  • Can I only try one look? This is totally up to you. If you know exactly what you want then I will create this look first. If you are certain that it’s what you want upon seeing it in ‘real’ life then –  perfect! However, as we go along I might be able to make some suggestions or tweaks that you might appreciate, or as we create the style you may decide that actually it isn’t quite right for you. Either way I am more than happy to show you an alternative – you are welcome and encouraged to take lots of pictures so you don’t have to make any instant decisions either!
  • When can I have my preview session? I can be flexible in regards to timings when it comes to preview sessions. generally morning slots ( when available) fill fast. Most of my mornings are spent with brides on their wedding day so I tend to schedule preview sessions in the afternoon. I offer both evening and weekend availability so if you work or are restricted in any way then just let me know and we can work something out for you.
  • What if I change my mind? Not a problem. You can book as many preview sessions as you like! Each session is charged separately but there is no limit to the amount you can book! If you don’t feel that you need another session , you just want a few things slightly different on the day itself then that’s fine. Just make sure you let me know before hand so I can come with everything I need!


Like I said if you need anything else then please do just ask! Stay up to date with what I’m up to and get lots of bridal inspiration from my Instagram and Facebook pages too!
