Tell us a bit more about why you love working with Brides to Be?
I love working with Brides to be because a good bit of their enthusiasm rubs off onto me and leaves me feeling uplifted for the future!
We have striped back our store from being plain retail to manufacturing something we have designed ourselves which feels really positive. It’s like a fresh beginning for the business and the response has been incredible. I can see us making so many more wedding products in the future so watch this space!
What has been your favourite wedding that you have worked on?
I recently helped a couple who were having a Gothic wedding. I sell Halloween goods and always have stock year round. They wanted skeletons, skulls and black muslin cloth. It was a second marriage and they were having immense fun creating a day based on scarlet and black that no one was going to forget.
What would be your top piece of advice for Brides to Be?
Focus on the day as a couple and approach and plan it together as much as possible because its just the beginning of a life you are going to share.
And what do you like to get up to when you’re not creating wedding photo booth props and fancy dress?
I love to play Irish music; one time I was at a big family wedding in Ireland and the bride had looked collected and cool the whole long day even when a car rammed the harpist’s van. At about 2am I got out my whistle and played her a wedding tune I’d learnt and she broke down in tears. It was all too much. Might have been my playing though!
