“Styling hair for weddings is a true love and passion of mine and I feel privileged to have styled hair for some amazing weddings around Gloucestershire and The Cotswolds. I’ve styled hair for huge society weddings at castles, smaller intimate weddings at manor houses, local registry offices and country churches. Having won the title ‘Bridal Stylist of the Year 2014′ has compelled me to work even harder at creating a brides dream look!”


A trial consultation is normally conducted around 4 – 8 weeks before the big day where Chris will help you decide on your dream look, creating the style in full and testing any hair accessories to make sure everything will run smoothly on the big day itself. Once that has been achieved, and only when you are totally happy, photographs will be taken of the look and detailed notes made to enable the style to be replicated on the wedding day.
On the day itself Chris will come to your home, venue or hotel and recreate the look you decided at the trial appointment. Once completed he will fix any headdress, tiara or veil for you, leaving you feeling beautiful, radiant and confident in the knowledge that no matter how soft and natural looking, your style will last the day and night….a five star wedding deserves a five star stylist!
