Kent Wedding Awards Finalist 2020

Kent Wedding Awards Finalist 2020

I am so delighted to be able to announce that yesterday I found out that I had made finalist for the Kent wedding Awards 2020!


For those of you that follow me, this is the award that I won back in 2016. Ive made finalist 5 times now and it’s a great honour to be recognised for what I do!  The little pink heart has become a well known feature for any brides and grooms planning their wedding. Many couples know and trust the suppliers who carry this logo so I’m proud to be able to display it again for 2020.


It’s important for me as a self employed stylist that I make sure that I’m doing everything I can , to be as good as I possibly can be for the brides that choose me. Entering the awards is my way of ‘putting myself out there’. I take great pride in what I do and the business I have created and I’m so grateful for recognition of that.


Awards are great but there really is no better feeling than a bride messaging me after her wedding to say thankyou or send photos. It’s such an important job – being there on the morning of someones wedding day, and it’s such a privilege to have them trust you to create the look that will last them forever in their photographs. 


So thankyou to all of the brides that have chosen me and of course to all of the brides that have booked me for their 2020/2021 wedding dates. I can’t wait to be a part of your big day…. I really do have the best job in the world!

 ( As I write this post I’ve stumbled across the post I wrote back in 2016 after winning the Bridal Hair title… I’ve put it below so you can have a read! Sometimes you simply have to take a moment and appreciate how far you have come! ) 








”It’s no secret that I love my job, I love what I do, I love that it fits around my life and my family and I love that a day at work – doesn’t even seem like a day at work! Four years ago when I was sat in my dead end job, clock watching, wishing my days away – the life I have now seemed like a million miles away. I didn’t even know it could exist. I had trained as a hairdresser years after leaving school. It wasn’t until I returned from three seasons in the sunshine that I finally enrolled myself in college and decided to go for it. I had always wanted to be a hairdresser, I loved playing with hair and I loved art so two years and two NVQ’s later – when someone first asked me if I offered bridal hair services I answered yes immediately. It was one of those moments where I thought ‘yeah , that sounds like a good idea, I could do that couldn’t i?! ’ and the rest as they say … is history!” 












Bridesmaids Hair

Bridesmaids Hair

Sometimes my brides are happy to let the bridesmaids decide on their hairstyle , other times they like them all to wear their hair in the same style. Does it matter to you? Here’s some important things to consider when selecting a style for your bridesmaids:

– The colour of their hair. As a general rule more intricate styles will always ‘show up’ better in blonde/lighter hair

-The length of their hair. Do you need to add any hair pieces to ensure all styles look the same weight/height/ size etc?

-Their face shape. maybe it really doesn’t suit your best friend to have her fringe scraped back from her face revealing the eyebrows that she hates…?

-Are they comfortable? You want your professional photos to look good so you want your girls to feel relaxed and comfortable.

-Will it last? If your chief bridesmaid has forever got her hand to her face is it really advisable to leave that bit of hair sweat across her forehead or will she just end up clipping it back?!

-Uniform. Not as in clothes but as in styles – if you are wanting the girls to wear a side bun, which side do you want it to? Do you want them all on the same side? Do you want to split it equally?

-Does it compliment your style? Maybe the most important question of all! You want your bridesmaids to look beautiful but do you want them to have an exact replica of your style? Or if you’re going for something understated do you really want them to have something more statement?
