Kent Wedding Awards Winner in the Bridal Hair Category
In 2021/2022 I was awarded winner of the Bridal hair category for the Kent Wedding Awards. The awards are a way for local wedding industry supplier to gain recognition for what they do ( and a good excuse to network and have fun for the evening with wedding supplier that you only otherwise see at the actual weddings! )
The first time I won this award back in 2016 I managed to make it to the awards ceremony and be there to collect my trophy in person. In contrast this last time I had just given birth and was asleep before the ceremony even started, ( missing the live stream altogether…! ) It wasn’t until the 3am feed when I woke to messages of congratulations from my colleges in the wedding industry that I realised I had in fact won!
For me personally, the awards are an important way to gain recognition for what I do. Being a bridal hair and makeup artist is the best job in the world ( maybe I’m slightly bias … ! ) And having people acknowledge your success, and that you’re doing what you love well enough to be noticed, praised and even win awards for it is such a wonderful feeling!
Over the years many brides have come to recognise the Kent Wedding Awards logo , the ‘little pink heart’, to be the sign of a quality wedding supplier. It provides them with reassurance and confidence that the business they choose is one that they know takes pride in what they do.
A wedding day is the absolute best day of your life, and you spend time, money and effort into making sure that it all comes together perfectly. A big part of that is down to the suppliers you select and the people you put your trust in to work with you, and for you, on all aspects of the day itself. For me, as a bridal hair and makeup artist, I am often one of the first people a bride sees on the wedding morning, and I’m often with the bride and the bridal party for hours while we get everyone ready. I’m often the one who provides the reassurance to a nervous bride, helps with any last minute extras and even manages the timeline of the morning so that everyone is ready with time to spare for photos and maybe even a quick drink at the end!
I’ve provided hair and makeup services for over 500 brides, so I’ve had my fair share of experience when it comes to wedding mornings! Honestly, I still love it just as much now as I did back when I started 10 years ago. It’s so lovely to be recognised for what I do and winning awards is the icing on the cake.
