Showcasing YOUR business expertise LIVE on Radio

Wedding Hair Specialists Ekko

Ekko are well known as Wedding hair specialists based in Banbury Oxfordshire, so we invited Ekko director Beverley Bates on to our very special wedding suppliers show.

We heard all about bridal hair styling, and why it’s useful to speak with your hairdresser before the whole wedding planning preparations start. We also found out about some of the wedding hair styling categories Ekko offered; Romantic, Fairy tale, Floral, Vintage, Bohemian, Lady luxe, Grecian, Classic, Ballerineresque, and Rockabilly.

A fascinating conversation unfolded. The interview is now available on podcast further down the page.

This interview was broadcast live on Radio Horton 8th January 2015

Award winning International celebrant and regular guest presenter Judy Mansfield, asks the all important questions.

Show host is Ian Gentles.


You have to look at every little detail with a wedding as it's so important.
