Catherine, her best friend, and her daughter went to the National Wedding Show in Birmingham, and after having looked at loads of wedding dresses Catherine’s daughter urged her to try on a dress that had caught her eye. The dress definitely had the ‘wow’ factor when she tried it on. Catherine ended up buying her Jenny Packham wedding dress from Silk Brides in Lichfield.
Catherine narrowed her hair stylist choice down to whoever could see her on the specific weekend that she was staying in the Glasgow area to finalise plans with local suppliers. Catherine found a lady called Angela from Stardusts hair and makeup. She had good reviews on the wedding forums and the gallery on her website looked like she could do a wide variety of hairstyles. Catherine has long hair so was originally going to keep her hair down, but when she saw her hair up she fell in love with the style! Her hair is quite thick and difficult to keep up in a bun but after about 2 packs of bobby pins she had a tousled side swept chignon and a few random curls hanging down.
