Getting married is all in a day's work for bride-to-be Katie Jones and her father Philip.
The pair, both hairdressers with salons next door to each other in Great Yarmouth, will start the big day by going to work - Katie on the wedding party at her salon called Generations and her father on his regular customers at PJs barbers in Deneside where he has worked for 50 years.
For while all brides have different ways for preparing for their big day - a bubbly breakfast with friends or a soothing massage to calm last minute nerves - Miss Jones will begin her day tomorrow back in the salon curling and teasing everyone's tresses before taking off her work clothes and slipping into her wedding dress.
A notice in Mr Jones' PJs Barbers advises customers that he will be shut for the afternoon so he can see his daughter marry army airborne signaller Andrew Hensby.

Customer Steve Scott said: “I joked about it being his annual holiday and he said his daughter Katie was getting married. I said, 'your daughter is getting married and you're only taking a half day,' and he said, 'so is she!'”
Katie, 31, of Beach Road, Caister, said: “It will be a bit of a rush but its all good fun. I like to be kept busy and I'm at my happiest when I am rushing about.”

She said she would rather do the work herself and fit it into a busy wedding day, helping to banish the butterflies. Although it was usual for brides to visit the hairdressers on their wedding, they were more often the ones being primped and pampered. Instead Katie will have to be last in the queue before she finally gets her own marriage head on.
Katie met Andrew, 27, from Watton, on a night out in Norwich 18 months ago. Their wedding at St Nicholas Parish Church tomorrow will be followed by a sit-down meal for 58 guests at the Imperial Hotel. The couple are honeymooning in Kenya.
