Hair and Makeup for Mature Bride in Bath "Katherine's wealth of experience, her knowledge and ability are absolutely second to none"
Sophie was a mature Bride who got Married at the Mac Donalds Bath Spa Hotel, Bath in July last year. Sophie choose an elegant half up, half down style of cascading waves dressed from her own naturally curly hair. The hair was embellished with small decorative hydrangea petals chosen to exactly compliment her bouquet of hydrangea cream and pale blue flower blooms.
"As a bride, when you’re planning your wedding, one of the most important things is the way you look. You know that you will be immortalised forever in your wedding album and if you are like me, and are older, (47 when I got married), you feel that more than ever, relying on your ‘natural beauty’ to get you through the day is just not enough.
I don’t really wear makeup regularly. And my husband-to-be wanted me to look, as much as I could, like ‘me’ for our special day. So I realised that I needed extra help, a professional.
I contacted Katherine to discuss her styling my hair and applying my makeup. We arranged to meet a couple of months before the wedding for a trial. (Absolutely essential. Don’t leave it to the day.) What immediately struck me about her was her wealth of experience in her business. her knowledge and ability are absolutely second to none. With that in mind, you may think there could have been a danger of her being stand-offish, aloof, and unapproachable. Not a bit of it. She immediately put me at ease with her very friendly manner. She discussed the type of style I was looking for my hair, listened, made suggestions on what will work, what wouldn’t, taking into consideration potential weather conditions etc and what would suit my face-shape, my build, height and my partner’s height. Everything was extremely thorough. The same process was applied to my make-up style. Both my hair and my make-up was absolutely perfect. Exactly what I had in mind.
Katherine uses the very best high quality products for both hair and make-up. There are absolutely no short-cuts. Both my hair and makeup was designed to last the day. It lasted 12 hours (and would have lasted longer) with only a little bit of lip-stick touch-up and nothing whatsoever done to my hair. Exactly what you want/need on your special day.
Katherine also styled my 2 bridesmaids perfectly to their requirements. All in all everyone was extremely happy with the outcome. An extremely worthwhile investment.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Katherine for her services. An experienced and approachable hair and makeup professional."
