Andrew Collinge lends his expertise to brides-to-be and Cancer Research

Andrew Collinge, celebrity hairdresser and master of the 'up do', is lending his expertise to brides-to-be via a ‘wedding hair master class’ video.

Andrew, who has also shared his top tips for wedding hair, below, demonstrates three stunning wedding hairstyles to give brides some inspiration for their look on the big day and to help raise awareness of Cancer Research UK’s Give in Celebration service.

Andrew says: "On your wedding day, having fabulous hair is important but not as important as being surrounded by the people you love.

"Using your wedding to help Cancer Research UK save more lives seems a fitting way to start a long, happy and healthy life together. I hope my suggestions will help brides decide what hairstyle to choose- and help raise money for this cause that’s so close to everyone’s hearts."

As part of Give in Celebration, couples who don’t want another toaster as a wedding present can ask their friends and family to make donations to Cancer Research UK instead of, or as well as, giving traditional gifts. They can create a personalised page on the site with images and colours to match their theme.

As well as the alternative gift list, Give in Celebration also offers unique wedding favours. Couples can order personalised favour cards and choose from a range of pin badges to accompany them. In return the charity asks that a £1.50 donation is made for every pin badge ordered.

Using Give in Celebration provides a personal way for the bride and groom to celebrate a friend or family member surviving cancer, or to remember someone close to them. For more information please see
