Back in July 2017 Donna found out that one of the photo shoots she had worked really hard on with her local supplier network friends made it to the front cover of 'Your Yorkshire Wedding Magazine'.
How amazing is this! Donna regularly gets together with her local supplier friends and gets involved in creative photo shoots to help promote her work at high quality locations. Getting featured in credible high profile magazines is just a great way to get that "Well done, pat on the back" feeling at the same time as helping with brand awareness in the local area.
"I love being a venue stylist!
What other jobs allow you to be involved with clients on the most happy of occasions. It is an honour to be part of a couple’s special day and play a part in making it perfect for them! The best bit is the feedback and hearing the most wonderful comments about your input into the day and what a difference the styling made!
Working on a shoot means you can let the creative juices flow with no limit on colour schemes or products! It’s lots of fun being able to work on amazing ideas with your peers in the industry and allows you to make great connections. It’s also a fantastic way to inspire creativity in your couples.
The most valuable thing is being able to connect with other suppliers to grow a tribe and contacts in your area as well as getting quality photos for your portfolio."
We caught up with Laura and Hannah from Ambience Hertfordshire as they approach their two year Ambience anniversary!
Sandie Edgar launched Ambience Edinburgh in April 2008 and has recently signed her third term.
Tina swaps her career in visual merchandising for wedding venue styling!
Emma and Adam launch Ambience in Teesside. They joined Ambience as stylists in early July 2017.

Hannah and Laura are proud owners of Ambience Venue Styling Hertfordshire. The sister team joined Ambience as stylists in October 2016.
Lenka Lockley and her husband Mark Lockley own the Ambience Venue Styling franchise in Derbyshire.
Laura Clark tells us that she started her Ambience Venue Styling business to have a more flexible work life balance.
Joining Ambience has allowed my husband and I the change in lifestyle we were searching for. Back in 2008 I was ready for a fresh challenge and my husband, Gareth, was disillusioned with his current employment. Each of us brings something different to the business which has enabled us to compensate for each other’s weaknesses whilst exploiting the other’s strengths.Sandie Edgar - Edinburgh Franchisee

I knew joining a franchise would give me the support I needed to start my own business, as Ambience was well established and had many stylists; it gave me the confidence to join. Once I decided to join, I had a long list to work through for setting up my business. It was all the basics that needed to be in place before my area/region went live. I’m so glad it was done before I started!Tina Smith - Suffolk Franchisee
