1) Firstly, LOVE the name. Tell us where your inspiration came from?
The inspiration began 18 years ago when founding directors Nisha and Anil were planning their own wedding. Nisha was a particular bride and her wedding was an occasion that she was going to make sure was perfect and that included having the perfect Mandap. Cue a Fiancée who wanted to keep his bride to be happy and realising she was not going to settle for any of the Mandaps she had been shown, he declared he will build and design her the Mandap that she wanted to see on her wedding day site link. After a fair deal of clattering and banging Anil emerged with victory on his hands – he had made the perfect Mandap, which Nisha saw for the first time on her wedding day. Now this might sound like a story of devotion from a husband to his wife but it was this passion to create, design and push the boundaries of truly giving brides what they want that sparked a desire for Anil to pursue this as a business.
2) You have done countless weddings. Tell us about the most memorable ones?
Every wedding we create is memorable to us as it is executed with a lot of passion. We have had some bold clients willing to venture into the unknown by trusting us to create a design that has never been done before. When our Gants Hill Manager (Bijal) got married her groom wanted to implement a bridge in the walkway to replicate a scene from Venice where he proposed! A man made bridge was what he got in a 60ft walkway along with a water canal built alongside the walkway and main stage. Another recent one was an epic reception party where we had hanging cages with led lights from the ceiling, and a large 10ft bird cage on the dance floor to showcase the client’s cake! Again this has never been done and we truly appreciate our clients trusting us to turn their dreams into reality.
3) With an ever changing industry, tell us what you think will be the trend for the coming year?
Walkways! That journey from when a bride is taking the first steps towards her husband to be with her maternal family is a very special moment. Exclusive walkways are becoming more and more popular with brides wanting their guests to share their breath-taking journey! Glass walkways filled with floating petals are really trending now! These are custom built walkways giving the illusion of walking over water! I know right? AMAZING.
4) We have had the opportunity to play at your showroom in Wembley. Tell our readers what they can expect on a visit?
Our much loved showroom is an ideal space which allows couples to see for themselves what Wed In Style can provide. We regularly display our exclusive Mandaps, Mehndi Décor and Stages allowing clients to walk through and visualise their big day first hand.
5) Tell us about your team and their roles in Wed In Style?
Our consultants across our UK branches are all experts in the industry who will take you through all your requirements and customise a bespoke package based on your needs and budget. We then have our very hard working warehouse team who maintain the decor along with our passionate event crew who plan the execution of events.
