Bespoke, Creative Event Styling…
Today we welcome On A Day Like This to our Mr & Mrs Unique team! Here we meet the lovely girls behind the business Jade & Sophie; who obviously have great taste and an eye for detail. They provide a one-stop, special event styling service for all couples needing that extra help for their big day.
Jade & Sophie…
Tell us a bit about your business…
We are the wedding and event styling specialists from Nottingham. Creators of unique hire styling services, Styling Coordination and Wedding in a box.
What made you start up the business…
It’s a little bit of a cliché wedding business start up story, but Jade (co owner) offered to dress her best friends wedding room as a gift to the happy couple three years ago. It ended up taking her a long time to source all of the items and cost her lots of money (probably would of been more cost effective to get that John Lewis toaster after all! ;)
The day before her best friends wedding when she should have been on maid of honour duties, she was actually dressing the venue, and it took a lot longer then she expected… 6 hours in total!
In the end it was all worth it, especially when the bride, groom and both sets of parents started crying when they first saw the wedding reception room set up.
It was at that point she thought “hmm there’s a business in here somewhere”. Fast forward three years, one baby and two house moves, and throw one seriously lovely business partner into the mix (Sophie Orr) and here we are!
What makes you Unique…
Apart from our two unique styling services, Styling Coordination and Wedding in a box. And along side the fact that we have been given the great honour of being the preferred venue styling specialists at the iconic and word famous Nottingham Heritage sites – Nottingham Castle, Newstead Abbey and Wollaton Hall. We are unique because we are passionate about creating an experience that will be memorable and unique to all of our clients. We promise to never give you what you have already seen a thousand times before.
What kind of couples match your style of service…
Our styling services are broad so therefore have mass appeal to people with taste and an eye for quality design.
Wedding in a box is our entry priced service that we deliver to your door, literally.
Our Styling Coordination hire themes are the complete styling service. Each theme includes absolutely everything you need from fresh flowers, stationary, favours and personalisation to dress your venue. All of which are of the very highest quality and finish. We always install and pack away all of our Styling Coordination hire themes, which is also included in the price.
We also offer a complete bespoke design service, so if a couple are looking for something very particular then we can definatly provide it for them, we thrive on a design challenge. We are able to source, design, create and install many types of items and products – so what we can provide for you is endless.
Tells us what you love about your business…
Being creative. Being challenged and being kept on our toes!
Most favourite event/ wedding…
We organised and hosted a wedding open evening event at Wollaton Hall at the end of April. That was a very special moment for us both. We have both grown up visiting the Hall and its surrounding parklands, so to run our very own event there was a great personal achievement, especially so early on as a new company.
We are already busy planning our next event, which will be at Newstead Abbey on 30th July.
We only work with the very best hand-picked, local suppliers, therefore at our events you will only find one supplier for each category – a supplier who we believe to be the best person for the job!
People’s reaction to your business…
Very overwhelming, everyone has been full of compliments! Our offering is very different to most stylists and I think its very refreshing for everyone to see.
To create a styling empire!
We have lots of exciting projects that we are busy working away on behind the scenes. Such as events we plan to run, photo shoots at our wonderful and unique venues etc.
We want to grow our Wedding in a box and online shop so it becomes a one- stop hire shop. We also plan to launch our seasonal online shop too this autumn, where you will be able to buy seasonal gifts and home wear!
We are so lucky to have been given some amazing opportunities so early on in our styling career, and we plan to make the most of them all!
For the next year our plan is to grow our brand, work hard and be happy!
