1. The high bun
Piled high onto the top of the bride’s head, this ultra glam structured up up-do is all about the height. Pin a veil underneath and add a hint of sparkle with a crystal hairpin.

3. Low and gathered
The low gathering of this hairstyle is a stunning way to show off a wedding dress with intricate back detail. Gather and pin with pastel flowers and let a few natural curls tumble down.

4. Pin curls
Hairspray will be your shining light with this pin-curl style that involves plenty of grips and expert skill to tease those shapes into place.

5. Short and sweet
Long locks aren’t for everyone and this short style proves a pixie cut can be styled just as elegantly for a wedding.

6. The half-up, half-down
Ah, the now classic half-up, half-down. A favourite among brides and wedding guests alike, this feminine hairstyle is low key and easy to do yourself.

Boho brides with long tresses will love this take on a French plait. Ideal for beach or pared-down woodland weddings.

Tonged curls with delicately weaved flowers add a magical garden-inspired touch to an otherwise simple style.

9. The side up-do
Wearing a hat? A side up-do with lots of bundled hair pinned into place won’t interfere with the placing of the headpiece.
