When it comes to winter weddings we suggest that our brides go for an up-style or a quite structured hair style, the reason being? Well it's simple... the weather. The weather in Winter is so unpredictable, wind, rain, damp and on occasion snow. These elements can all make for some absolutely wonderful photography but can ultimately challenge your hairstyle. Here are some inspirational styles we love and recommend so the weather does not wreak havoc with your hair on your big day!
The beauty of an up-style is that it remains perfect throughout the day as most are kept in shape with copious hairpins, holding and setting spray. All of these products prevent frizz and the hair style coming undone. It also means the bride can enjoy her day without checking herself repeatedly or having to sweep hair from her face and out of her make-up in the wind.
Another thing to keep in mind is that many winter brides opt for a more dramatic or defined look with their make up, darker eyes and lips, this look paired with an up-style works perfectly and really gives a polished overall look. Talk to your hair stylist and suggest some looks you have discovered, best to try a couple out well in advance of the big day so that you're completely relaxed on the wedding morning !
Wedding hair vines are very on trend this year, but if you are asking yourself “What’s a wedding hair vine?”, let us explain. Wedding hair vines are long, flexible head pieces made on thin twisted wire that can be shaped to any design required to suit your hairstyle. Wedding hair vines generally don’t have any combs attached to them and can easily be pinned into your hair wherever needed. This gives them the flexibility to be worn with many different hairstyles.
So, how should you wear your wedding hair vine...
First, decide on how you will be wearing your hair; will you be wearing your hair down, in a long loose braid? Hair vines also look fantastic in half up half down hairstyles. Simply secure into the section of your hair that is pinned up, and then gentle curve down through your loose waves. If you are wearing your hair in a loose plait, the hair vine can simply be plaited into your hair as it is done.
As we mentioned hair vines are a very big trend for this year and here are our top selling wedding hair vines so far...

Whatever your mood, style, outfit or budget, there are statement earrings out there that make you happy the moment you put them on. We remember the earrings we wore on first dates and on special occasions and, let’s be honest, we can always find an excuse to treat ourselves to a new pair! When it comes to your wedding earrings, the stakes are a little higher but don’t worry, we’re here today with our top tips to help you choose the perfect pair…
You’ll be wearing your statement earrings all say so not only do they need to be beautiful they need to be practical too. If you don’t often wear long drop earrings it might be a good idea to wear your earrings at home behind closed doors for a few days to be sure you get on with them.
Consider any other accessories you'll be wearing or the details of your wedding dress when choosing your earrings. If your dress has embellishments, you might like to opt for earrings that coordinate with them.
Don’t forget that your whole outfit should be balanced, if you want to wear a glamorous pair of statement earrings, don’t rush to wear lots of other accessories, alternatively if you opt for subtle wedding earrings you can then choose to wear lots of other pieces too, our Alisha, Freshwater Pearl Silver Earrings are perfect for this.
