What are you up to at the moment?
At the moment we are busily keeping up with orders that are coming in through our Etsy shop and gearing up to start attending wedding fairs towards the end of the year. As we are in our first year of business we are finding our feet, finding a customer base and place in the huge wedding market!
Where did the idea for Pretty Lane Weddings come from?
It came from planning our own wedding. We loved everything about planning our big day and all the personal touches we were able to add and when it was all over we missed it. We spent hours and hours carefully hand making some many parts of the day, and we think it is all those fine details that make a wedding memorable. It took a while due to day jobs, but Pretty Lane Weddings was finally born this year!
Who’s your role model?
As a husband and wife duo – thats a tough one to answer! In terms of the business though, we take a lot of inspiration from American wedding sites and blogs. For some reason the level of pretty attention to detail and all over glamour is something that is hard to find here.
What’s your earliest design memory?
We really only found out we had a love for design from planning our own wedding! I think it was over the many many hours we spent looking for our wedding suppliers that we realised how specific our ideas were and that whilst there were providers who had elements of what we wanted, we struggled to find someone who had it all. We realised then that we both had a hidden passion for design.
What’s the biggest lesson you have learned so far?
Balance. We both still work day jobs while we build the business up, so finding the balance in time to get everything done can sometimes be tough.
When you’re not working on being the next big thing, what do you do to relax?
Sometimes after a long day at work, an evening designing and crafting – the best thing is to cuddle up on the sofa with a glass of wine and put our feet up!
We encourage everyone to do one thing each week to be kind to themselves, what are you going to do this week to #bekindtoyou?
We both have different ways of being kind to ourselves! Mr. PLW loves keeping fit and going to the gym; that’s his me time. I however have a small obsession with nail polish, so I enjoy a weekly DIY pamper with a home manicure and gel polish.
