Bridal Inspiration: My Stunning Wedding Hair (2014)

Bridal Inspiration: My wedding hair!

My wedding hairstylist Vicki Lord was sorted from before I was engaged. I know just how clever Vicki is through years of working together. The thought and design process that goes into all of her bride’s hairstyles has me in awe. This was the bit I was most calm about as I knew I was in good hands!

I didn’t have my hair trial until two weeks before the wedding. I was able to bring my dress and do my makeup so I could see the whole look together. I had ideas of how I might like my hair and in my mind, I thought that a more casual hairstyle would be better suited because the dress was so glam. In reality, only glam would do!
Vicki had an inspiration image that I had also picked (great minds think alike) in one of my secret Pinterest boards and was the inspiration behind having lace in my hair.

I hadn’t ever seen it on a ‘real-life’ bride and loved how it gave the hair look a touch of elegance. I mentioned this to Charlotte at one of my early dress fittings and she had given me some pretty gold beaded lace that complimented my dress and Vicki dressed my hair around it.

The trial was great, as expected. Vicki sketched my dress and her ideas of the hair design, we chatted about the hair that would suit the dress and my face shape/bone structure.

I was happy for her to just go for it and to trust the professional! It was certainly elaborate and so beautiful, I really loved it but felt I needed to see a slightly less ‘big’ hair-do for my own peace of mind. I felt a bit panicky and that the big hair and big gold dress might be too much?… Of course, it wasn’t and this was a bit of a waste of time, but I needed to be sure.
