Cotswolds Wedding Makeup at Barnsley House

April 1st, 2014

As a lot you already know, I’m a huge fan of Barnsley House, Nr Cirencester, Glos. Not only is it beautiful and tranquil but the staff and especially Natalie, the wedding Co-ordinator are a real asset to the hotel.

I have been lucky enough to prepare a few brides at this venue and wanted to share this beautiful bride from last year with you all.

I was first contacted by Melani by email as she lives in Australia and therefore had to do a serious amount of planning from a long way away. She asked me if I had any recommendations regarding hair and of course I immediately suggested my fabulous partner in wedding crime, Vicky Turner from Goldsworthy, Cirencester. We held both hair and makeup trials at the salon to make it easier for when Melani came over as she only had a few days to squeeze a lot into.

What a fabulous and beautiful family they are and it was a real honour to be part of their big day. Also a big thank you to photographer Ria Mishaal at for allowing me to share these amazing shots with you.
