What is this season’s most popular bridal hair colour? 

Natural shades are very popular at the moment, enhancing your colour with subtle high and lowlights to add depth and movement to your bridal style. 


Would you recommend a bride to dye her hair before her wedding day? 

Only a simple tidy up, nothing drastic. 


If a bridesmaid has a shade of hair colour that the bride isn't so keen on, what advice would you give for the bride to approach this situation? 

Always be open and truthful with your bridesmaids, after all it’s your big day and you wouldn’t want to regret not saying anything. Have a word with your hairdresser and see if a temporary hair colour could be used to change your bridesmaid’s hair just for the wedding. 


What seasonal hair colours work best? Darker or lighter in winter? Highlights or lowlights in summer? 

Most of us opt for lighter shades in the summer and darker in the winter. This tends to work with things like our choice of clothing for the different seasons. It’s important to choose a shade that works for you as an individual, suits your skin tone, personality and style, and add complimentary tones to change it up through the year. 


Pre-Wedding date, what hair care routine would you recommend leading up to the bride’s big day? 

I would recommend sticking with what works for you. Changing from your regular products and routine can affect the condition of your hair and scalp. If you’re having any specific problems then ask your hairdresser for some recommendations, otherwise, I recommend a trim to keep split ends at bay and possibly a nice conditioning treatment a week or so before to add shine and make sure your hair feels and looks super healthy before your big day. 


The night before her wedding day, what hair care routine would you recommend for our brides? 

I recommend keeping to your regular routine. Many stylists prefer to work with hair that is unwashed but if you like to wash your hair every morning or evening you should do so, this time is all about being comfortable and stress free. Keep your hair natural and product free and if it’s very long you could loosely plait it to keep it from tangling. Most of all enjoy the evening before and get a good night’s sleep!

What is this season’s most popular bridal hair colour? 

Blonde is always popular in the summer months with a big copper red/ginger influence at the moment



Would you recommend a bride to dye her hair before her wedding day? 

Only a simple tidy up, nothing drastic. 


Pre-Wedding date, what hair care routine would you recommend leading up to the bride’s big day? 

2 weeks before the big day, continue having a regular trim with colour touch-ups but dont change the colour of your hair just before the wedding


The night before her wedding day, what hair care routine would you recommend for our brides? 

Simply wash your hair and blow-dry it, make sure you don’t straighten with straighteners. It’s easier to style natural hair and you’ll have a gorgeous natural shine once the hair is styled. 





What go-too products do you recommend for long lasting hold and shine for the bridal party to ensure their hair looks flawless all day? 

The TIGI Catwalk hairspray will provide long lasting hold. TIGI range is brilliant for shine and adaptable to a variety of hair types. 


What are your favourite hair accessories for bride for her wedding day? 

Depends on hair style and the wedding theme. My favourite style right now is probably the addition of fresh flowers. It adds an ethereal and fresh vibe that can coordinate perfectly with the bouquets and décor of the wedding. But remember, less is more when it comes to accessories. It’s hair not a Christmas tree! 


For different wedding gown styles Charlotte described the ideal hair do.

A Bride's Eye View

Lorna and Dean 



Dressed head to toe in a 1970s get up, Lorna and her friends bounced into a quiet pub in Loughborough, singing and dancing the moves from the musical they had just performed to finish their A levels. Filled with glee, Lorna sat down next to an unassuming local and started chatting. Little did either of them realise that 8 years later they would be tying the knot at their fairytale wedding.


The wedding was stunning. Set in the idyllic Swancar Farm, Nottingham, this shabby chic country house with open wood beams was the perfect location for the Hardy’s to get married. Handy man Dean, hand-painted the wedding signs, created the table plan, designed the invites and chopped up the log slices. The dusky blue and rustic theme resonated throughout the gorgeous location, in the floral and the décor, coordinating with the bridesmaid’s dresses and accessories of the groomsmen. Dean, dressed in a three-piece grey suit with a tweed waistcoat, waited patiently for his bride as their loved ones bustled excitedly. When Lorna walked down the aisle she took everyone’s breathe away. The Mandongus wedding gown that Lorna wore fitted her figure perfectly and complimented her personality to a tee. The lace illusion cap-sleeve over a sweet-heart neckline on this stunning wedding gown was clearly on show as Lorna’s hair was neatly tied up with intricate plaits and loose curls. The vintage lace dispersed throughout the dress contrasted perfectly with the simplicity of the satin bow tied around Lorna’s waist and the plain, full length veil she wore. The gasps of awe and delight arose from the guests as they admired this gorgeous bride as she carried her beautiful bouquet towards her fiancée. With a smile from ear to ear Lorna greeted the man of her dreams and the couple said ‘I do’ to the rest of their lives together.

Do you know the name of the designer of your wedding gown? 

Lusan Mandongus 


Did you wear a veil, if so, what style? 

Yes - waterfall, full length single tier (Helen Martin Veils). 


How did you choose the style of your wedding shoes? 

My main requirement was not too high! I'm not great in heels! 


Did you have a dress budget, and did you stick to it? 

Yes - and no I didn't, I fell in love with the dress! 


How did you choose the style of your hair? 

Pinterest was my inspiration! I knew I wanted an up style because of my high-necked dress and found a few ideas then my hairdresser Maria Conway made the magic happen. 


Where was the honeymoon? 

Borneo - visiting Orangutans, sea turtles, elephants and climbing mountains! 


What was your favourite moment of your wedding? 

This is so hard to choose, but I think my sister's reading in our wedding ceremony which she'd written herself, there wasn't a dry eye in the house and it was a complete surprise! 


Were you nervous the night before your wedding, if so, how did you overcome the nerves? 

No - I was just excited! we went for a big meal with family and friends which kept us busy but I barely slept that night. 



Do you have any top tips on how to get the most out of your photographer? 

Natural is better - spend less time posing for the camera and more enjoying your day and having fun with your guests, that gets the best pictures. 


If you could go back to the planning stage of your wedding, what would you do differently and why? 

Maybe try more cake samples - you can never try too much cake! 


What is the best piece of advice you could offer another bride? 

I don't know how many times I was told planning a wedding would be stressful and heard jokes about how the groom's job was to just turn up on the day, we had the best time planning our day together, so have fun planning your wedding with you future husband, it's his day as well as yours. 


What are you most looking forward too about married life? 

We love travelling so I can't wait to have a life full of adventures with my best friend.
