Our elder daughter Claire's wedding took place in Herefordshire England and the hairdresser and makeup lady arrived promptly that morning at the B&B where we had been staying for the preceding week. I imagine the hairdresser would have had a portable hair dryer if she needed one, but again, it was not required. Fewer photographs here, just a couple showing Claire being made up and her sister Laura getting the curling tong treatment to transform her straight hair into ringlets, to match her sister's naturally curly locks, as did Claire's other bridesmaid Penny (not pictured). I'm all done, and just visible in the mirror taking the shots, if you look closely.
|Flashback: The photo above reminded me of these two of Laura, taken when she was aged about 10, either after a home attempt at creating curls, or perhaps just the after effect of wearing plaits for a day or two.|
The weather was inclement unfortunately, but luckily the bride and her wedding party only needed to walk a couple of steps between the B&B to the waiting cars and the same at the venue, and their hairstyles remained intact.

You can seek recently posted photographs of the finished products here. I think they turned out very well, but of course, I am just a little biased!
