Full Description
  • Hello, my name is Katie-Jane Whitlock and I set up my bridal hair business 4 years ago as a little part-time job around my two kids. This then turned into a full time career and my dream job, something I had spent many years trying to find. The last 4 years have been a whirlwind and I have been really lucky to have worked on TV sets such as 'Downton Abbey' and 'The Vikings'. I have also been a regional finalist for the National Wedding Awards 2016 and 2017. I absolutely love what I do and I believe this has helped me achieve the things I have so far. My style is very bohemian but I love creating all styles and am always looking at new ways to create a brides perfect look. Many of my brides have kindly told me that it's like having an old friend style their hair and this is something I hold close to my heart. I always want my brides to feel as relaxed as they can on their wedding day, feel confident and have fun. I work really hard with every one of my brides to achieve their perfect look, from the moment they get in touch to the moment I say goodbye. I absolutely adore hairstyles which sit and flow naturally but will stay put until the early hours. I hope that I can offer brides a unique look and a really fun and friendly service.

What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
In regards to a hair wedding tip, go with recommendations and use the trial as a way to try every look until you find your perfect one.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
My friend had a broach from her gran and I asked if we could use it in her hair as a hair accessory. It looked stunning and was also really personal to her.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
After the initial contact and gathering of details, a holding deposit invoice gets sent out and a trial is booked. An email consultation is carried out prior to the trial discussing styles and sharing ideas and images. The trial then takes place. Images from the trial are sent out and the style is discussed and confirmed. A schedule is made and a further invoice with all costings is sent out. Contact is continued up until the big day itself. The week before the big day the schedule is confirmed. On the big day I will stay throughout the schedule and at the end until I am no longer needed.
What do you love most about your job?
Creating amazing hairstyles and meeting new people. I also feel tremendously proud to be included in the most important morning of their life!
What is your #1 beauty tip for a bride?
Go with your instincts and choose makeup that suits you and you feel comfortable with. Choose a makeup artist who understands this.
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
I make them laugh and I keep calm myself. Preparation is key but above all just have fun.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
Great hair and makeup will last. Avoid vigorous dancing and if you do, don't post any pictures up of your hair and makeup after 8pm :)
