I’m very excited to announce that I am now a recommended supplier for hair and makeup at Stowe House!
About the venue
Stowe is a truly amazing venue, with grounds laid out by Capability Brown and now managed by the National Trust (the photo opportunities are AMAZING!). It is now a public school during term time. However in the school holidays, it is a spectacular wedding venue!
My favourite room is the marble saloon which is just incredible. Columns of pink marble reaching up to the ceiling, and tall doors and windows overlooking the park, including the octagon lake and the corinthian arch. Whilst it was being restored in 2005, a tennis ball was found in the plaster frieze. Its still there (though I’ve not been able to spot it yet!)
Your wedding ceremony at Stowe
You also have a choice of rooms in which to conduct your civil ceremony, or alternatively, one of the temples in the grounds.
Your hair and makeup at Stowe
As a recommended supplier at Stowe, I am ideally placed to assist you with your hair and makeup requirements. I am local to the venue (my studio is about 10 minutes away) and I know the coordinators there. Its always a pleasure to assist a Stowe bride as the venue is so delightful to work at! Stowe is a very special venue which demands a slightly higher impact look than, say, a barn venue or another, less formal, space. Hollywood waves work really well here, as do smooth, sleek buns.
For makeup, classic, timeless makeup is always on trend, and works beautifully in the elegant, refined spaces at Stowe. A red lip or a smoky eye is strong enough to hold its own.
Stowe and I…
It’s entirely possibly that I spent an inordinate amount of time ploughing up and down the Stowe School pool as a teenager when I had ambitions of being an Olympic swimmer! Amber-dog is also partial to a stroll around the beautiful grounds – as am I. Its basically on my doorstep and is a great place to unwind and get away from it all.
