International Women's Day 2019

North West Women In The Wedding Industry That Rock

During the last six years since setting up my business I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with some absolutely inspirational women in the wedding industry. Today, on International Women’s Day 2019, I thought I would give them a bit of a shout out. (Not in order of awesomeness - they are all equally fabulous!)

Corrie - The Soiree Stylists

Super star stylist!

Super star stylist!

I first met Corrie when she was working for a corporate firm, totally unrelated to styling. She had styled her own wedding and knew then she had something special and so ‘The Soiree Stylists’ begun. It has been so wonderful to watch her business grow into the success it is today and now her full time job. Recently styling a celeb wedding and appearing in OK magazine and also winning the regional title for Best Venue Stylist at The Wedding Industry Awards she is a little pocket rocket and oozes creativity! If you want your wedding to stand out from the crowd, she is the one to contact.

Sasha - Sassflower

Beautiful blooms

I have had the pleasure of working with Sasha a few times now. She is a florist that likes to think outside the box and break the rules. Following her instinct and taking risks means she comes up with some of the most creative florals I have ever seen. Every time I am involved in a styled shoot and I find out she is on board, I know it will be awesome! She is also a lovely person to boot. Go and check her out!

Zuzana - Stella Photography

Bad ass photo gal!

Bad ass photo gal!

Zuzana is one half of Stella Photography (with the equally awesome Seb). She is one of the most fun, high energy, smiley people I know and that comes across in her photography too. I love working with her on weddings and shoots and know that I will not only get amazing images but that the day will be filled with laughter, dancing and general merriment! Love you guys!

Elinor- The Indie Wedding Fair

Follow your dreams

Follow your dreams

I first met Elinor at another wedding fair and we stayed in touch. She has gone on to take the alternative wedding scene by storm with her ‘Indie Wedding Fairs’ in Sheffield & Manchester, flying the flag for unique and individual wedding suppliers who maybe don’t fit into the ‘norm’ when it comes to weddings. No chair covers here!

Suzy - The Word Is Love

Love is the answer

Love is the answer

Suzy is one half of ‘The Word Is Love’ with her husband Ollie. They made light up ‘Love’ letters for their own wedding and the rest, as they say is history. They now provide light up letters, neon and other fabulous stylish props and backgrounds to weddings and events all over the country. Not only that, but doing it whilst juggling running a family unit too - I know first hand how hard that is. They are a dream team and a pleasure to work with. Can’t wait to see what great ideas you guys come up with next!

Kitty - Birdie Camper Van Photo Booth

Pretty in pink

Pretty in pink

I first met Kitty at a wedding fayre and fell in love with her pink camper van photo booth instantly. Kitty is such a lovely person and now a dear friend. I know she has always got my back which means a lot. Birdie is basically ‘Kitty’ in camper van form…….! She doesn’t know how fabulous she is and I was so proud when she won not just regionals, but also nationals at TWIA this year in the ‘Special Touch’ category. If you want to inject some fun into your wedding then look no further!

I can’t go into every talented North West woman I know in the wedding industry in so much detail but here are a few more names to add to the mix:

I am strong, I am invincible, I am woman
