Let’s kick things off with some serious style … Eizabeth Peat, over to you:
Who are you and, what do you do?
My name is Elizabeth Peat and I am a hair stylist by trade, I also have a Business Management Degree. I have amalgamated these together and now organise hairdressing themed events, WELCOME TO ELIZABETH PEAT WEDDING HAIR AND VINTAGE EVENTS.
At Elizabeth Peat Wedding Hair and Vintage Events we pride ourselves on our service to you the customer. Our Mission Statement is “to provide a quality and unique service to every customer”.
I first started working in hairdressing salons over 10 years ago and developed my skills and knowledge to build a reputation as a modern and innovative hairdresser. This passion has taken me to work at Birmingham Fashion Week and photo shoots in Covent Garden, London.
My hairdressing themed events include Vintage Hen Parties and Traditional Tea Parties. These party events accompany my Wedding Hair and Makeup services.
Our passion is to make your day extra special, so whichever of our traditional or vintage party services you choose we have the expertise to make that happen
If you weren’t doing what you are what would you be doing?
I would have gone to University and studied fashion. I have always been inspired by Vivienne Westwood.
I love the changes she has made throughout the years from the punk explosion in the 1970’s to her 1984 collaboration with Malcolm Mclaren titled Pirates. I believe fashion and hair coincide with each other and love her newer designs including the Red Label which appeals to younger tastes.
If you could have any bride in the world as client ( celebrity or not) who would it be and why?
It would be Lady Gaga, as a hair stylist by trade I am very creative and love to experiment with new shape and texture. Mixing old and new to invent traditional hair designs but with vintage twists really exaggerates my expressive style.
With Lady Gaga being so creative herself and always willing to take chances it would be great to design and create something innovative and personal for her.
Next up is the super stylish and effortlessly cool, Michele Gledhill event stylist:
Who are you and what do you do?
Hey, my name is Michele and I am a wedding and event stylist. I love to create dream weddings and offer a comprehensive design and create service tailored to reflect your individual style. I love to hear every bride’s style ideas and put these into reality in a unique and personal way. My services include the full development of the overall design, the design and creation of all floral and non-floral decor including bridal, ceremony and reception arrangements and the design and creation of finer details such as table stationary and favours.
If you weren’t doing what you are doing, what do you think you would be doing?
I absolutely love my job so I’m sure it would be part of whatever I was doing…maybe I would be running a gorgeous little Bed & Breakfast by the sea (preferably in California!!), styling, decorating and probably regularly re-decorating each room and filling them with gorgeous florals every day!! If money was not an issue I’m sure I would spend my days creating all the lovely things I like to create in my imagination and give them to all my friends!
If you could have any bride in the world as your client, who would it be and why?
Family is really important to me so I can’t wait to style my little sister’s wedding and of course my daughters’ weddings!! Mind you, one of my daughters has already told me that she wants to get married on the beach in a bikini and doesn’t want flowers!!! WHAT???!! Such a teenager…she’ll come round!! If I had to choose a celebrity, I would have to say I completely adore the recent wedding style of Kate Moss. All the gorgeous country, vintage style details were exactly what I would choose if I could do my wedding again! With details like that, she would be my dream client!!
What are you most looking forward to about The Wedding Event with a Difference?
I can’t wait to meet so many different brides and hear all their unique style ideas and also be part of such a creative atmosphere! I’m really looking forward to creating a relaxed and interactive stand this year…helping brides put together style and colour ideas using mood boards, florals and lots of lovely accessories!!
Finally, last but certainly not least, it is the incredible Illustries – I seriously NEED one of their memory books in my life:
