Oh, Hi there…
Hi, my names Katie ( Katiemarie if I’m in trouble! ) and I’m a bridal hair stylist and airbrush make up artist, educator and Kent Wedding Awards Winner ( watch my video below!) I’m also Mummy to an adorable ice cream loving, fancy dress wearing little lady and wife to documentary photographer Simon Hawkins( more about him in a moment! ) .
I always knew I wanted to ‘do hair’ but it wasn’t until I’d spent some time travelling that I decided to do something with the flair I had and the desire to plait the hair of anyone who would let me…! Since then I haven’t looked back and now my business is ‘brides’. I love the feeling that I still get now, hundreds of brides later, when I get someone ready for their big day and get to see the transformation take place. It’s like working behind the scenes of a great movie – you know it has a happy ending and despite how much a bride might worry, It’s always alright in the end. To be invited to share in a wedding morning is pretty special and I don’t think the novelty of that will ever wear off. I get to see people on the very best day of their lives and I get to play a massive part in that. I get to make them feel quite possibly the most beautiful they have ever felt and just seeing the impact that can make to someone is simply amazing.
Simon and I both work within the wedding Industry. It’s a lovely place to be and we enjoy the opportunity to work together ( Well I do at least! ) So much so that we’ve devised a package to offer our brides and grooms the chance to book both of us for their big day. If you’re still looking for your photographer be sure to check him out too…..
I look forward to working with you!
