I asked Katy to tell me in her own wordds a bit more about her background and her business so far.

‘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 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’

‘Due to the bespoke nature of my work, no one piece is the same. A lot of the materials used within my pieces are irreplaceable such as the vintage lace. My website showcases the 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 brides requirements. I love working with brides who want something a little bit different and making their headwear dreams come to life.’

‘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.’

It’s all go at the moment and i have met so many amazing people working within the Wedding Industry, i can’t wait to see where it takes me next.’
