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 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 a part of 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!Donna Wojtas - Bradford & Halifax Franchisee
Starting a business can be very daunting, to know that we were joining a well-established national network made our decision a lot easier. Now, we can be our own boss and know that all the work we put in is going to benefit ourselves. Nothing is ever too silly and there will always be someone who knows the answer or who can help - both Head Office and Stylists. It’s like a little Ambience family.Emma Pearson & Adam Richmond - Teesside Franchisees
