Last Saturday saw both myself and Hair by Laura, who has recently joined us as a freelance bridal hairdresser, leave at 6am and make our way down to East Sussex and the lovely Shoyswell Cottage to prepare Lynda and her bridal party for her upcoming nuptials at High Rocks, Tunbridge Wells.

Upon arrival at Shoyswell Cottage we were literally blown away by how welcoming both Joylan and Lawrence, the owners were and also the decor! One of the most stunning B&B’s I have ever seen. I would love to stay here!  Here are some images of the decor of the cottage


Lynda is from Malaysia and her family had travelled to the UK for her big day so we had the pleasure of meeting her sisters, mum and Dad, plus her friend Julie and new sister in law Michaela.  The bride opted for very natural hair and makeup, as her dress was striking and she didn’t want to detract from it.  Her foundation was applied using Bare Minerals products to keep her base light and fresh.  Brides hair and makeup by Hayley at Flame Beauty.


Lynda chose a theme of braids for her hair styles, and incorporated them in to the gorgeous bridesmaids hair, which were styled by Laura Fairman


We had a very enjoyable morning with Lynda and her nearest and dearest, not forgetting Tiny and Lola the resident dogs at Shoyswell Cottage.  Thank you for inviting us to be a part of your big day xx
