Let’s find out a little bit more about this fabulous friend of Brides Up North and her gorgeous creations.  .

.

Over to Katy:  I started up What Katy Did Next a few years ago alongside my Degree course in Textiles and Surface Design. The course was a huge inspiration and fuelled my passion for all things handmade. As soon as I got engaged in 2009 I was practically addicted to wedding blogs, and started sketching a few bridal headpieces as a way to ‘pretty up’ my short hairstyle. After a push in the right direction from photographer Sally Thurrell who had me design and make an awful lot of her wedding accessories, i set about designing my first bridal headwear collection.

After a wonderful trial and error type journey my collection was born. It consists of twenty pieces split into four sections – Bohemian, Classic, Romance & Vintage. I realised I couldn’t stick to one theme, purely because the handful of brides who contacted me after Sally had such different tastes and I wanted a collection that could promote all these styles. I kept the Classic bride pale and interesting, adding touches of pink and floral to Romance, feathers and sparkle for the Vintage bride and hand cut leather butterflies and dried lavender for a Bohemian feel.

The handmade nature of my work is a huge bonus for clients who want something that little bit different. I am happy to work with brides on commissioned pieces and have already worked with a lot of Mother of the Brides helping design pieces to match their outfits. My website showcases my headwear with a guide price so that custom orders can be made, and as the pieces are made to order they are easily changed to match each bride’s requirements.

I also have a lot of fun creating other wedding accessories. My love bird & peg doll cake toppers are hugely popular at the moment, with couples being able to personalise styles, colours and fabrics. My sequin heart shoe clips are a hit with bridesmaids and I have recently added garters and ring pillows to my list of products.

    What Katie did next was made this bride to be very happy by giving her a wonderful head piece for her big day!!!!
    I have been searching for a statement head piece that is a bit different and up to date and I think the fab “Jane” design fits the bill perfectly!

    Such a beautiful headpiece. Unfortunately, it wouldn’t match my wedding dress but I would love to win this for my sister for her 18th birthday on the 14th March 2012. It would suit her and her style so well.

    I would rock this headpiece as i am also a Katy, and also studied the same course at the same uni as this Katy haha! I love her beautiful, unique pieces and would love one to brighten up my plain hair for a very special event 🙂 This design is really feminine and delicate and it would be a lovely little treat to add some sparkle to my christmas! Good luck everyone! x x

    I have met Katy many times and have worked on photo shoots together as well. Katy your work is exceptional. Your headpieces are just “wow”, it’s always difficult to choose a favourite.

    I own the cystal headpiece on the BonBons, and I would love another What Katy Did Next to add to my collection, as I have 2 weddings to go to next year and I think Jane would go perfectly with both outfits!
    Thank you always Katy for an amazing headpiece xx

    Katy’s designs are all so pretty….I have nowhere pretty to go as yet, but would rock one just as well in my PJ’s 🙂 x

    A gorgeous headpiece this most certainly is, it would make even my head look great – it would be the bizz!

    Good luck to all you ladies but I’d really like to win, and walk down the aisle wearing Jane to my H2Bs grin!

    I discovered What Katy Did Next through Dolly Mama and I`m so glad I did. Katy`s work is fab. I`ve always wanted a special handmade headpiece for those special occasions. I would rock this headpiece through the festive season and beyond.

    What Katy did next is a huge inspiration to me – I graduate tomorrow from the same degree course and hope to set up my own business too, it’s great to see such beautiful images and lots of familiar names connected to Brides Up North!! Although I am already married I would love to win the headpiece for my daughter’s bottom drawer!

    Hi Katy – You made my friends wedding look spectacular!!

    I would TOTALLY rock your headpiece as i am a JAYNE and would make my outfits shine everyday in my little tea house. The headpiece would go so well with my tea lady dresses to give it that extra special look and make all my customers want one.

    I will wear this everyday and tell all my customer and friends about you!!
    Keep up your amazing designs!! C x

    Because these pieces are sooo gorgeous, something to keep forever as they will never date and then hand on to the next generation of brides, and despite having just celebrated my 15th wedding anniversary, i think i would still love to wear such an amazing vintagelooking piece…..

    Katy your designs are beautiful, and I know just a perfect someone (my girlfriend) would absolutely love anything that you make. I’d love to be in her good books for Christmas, it would be a lovely way to say I love you and one of the best presents I would ever be able to give her. I would love to win the headpiece to put a smile on her face, there’s no better feeling in the world and you would certainly put a smile on mine if I won it! Keep up the good work x
