Today I am delighted to introduce Beau Brides & Weddings who specialise in beautiful personalised gifts, luxury gift towers and hampers for the whole Wedding Party.
I had a chat with Laura Stubbs about her Business….
Who are you, and what do you do ?
“My name is Laura and I am the Managing & Creative Director of Beau Brides & Weddings, a luxury wedding gift company.”
“We specialise in creating totally unique, bespoke & personal gifts for the whole wedding party.”
“These are filled with lots of lovely goodies & keepsakes they make wonderful Thank You gifts for all your loved ones that have helped to make your big day so special.”
“We also make them for Bridal Showers, we often get requests from Mothers of the Bride or Bridesmaids to create something really special for the Bride to Be.”
“These make lovely keepsake boxes for the bride following the wedding as the boxes are lined with satin or velvet style material.”
“We have just launched our new service of Planning & Co-ordinating Bridal & Weddings showers – which is very exciting too!”
Why, and when did you start your Business?
“I started Beau Brides & Weddings following the success of its sister company Beau Baskets, Luxury Gift Basket & Hamper company.”
“As we evolved we knew it was important to create a platform for the wedding gifts in their own right as Weddings are such a specialist area.”
“We were approached by Brides the Show to exhibit in their first ever show in October 2013 in Battersea Park, London so we decided that was when we would launch Beau Brides & Weddings.”
“It was a fabulous show and we met lots of lovely brides & bridal parties who loved the uniqueness of our products.”
What inspires you?
“I am inspired by my love of making people smile and creating gifts that stir up a wealth of happy emotions and make imprints in people’s memories.”
“I am lucky enough to play a small part in many wondrous occasions in peoples’ life with both Beau Baskets & Beau Brides and after a few years working as a wedding co-ordinator I most definitely have a soft spot for weddings!”
“I was married 7 years ago and I’m desperate to renew our vows – I’m a big romantic at heart, as is most of our team and that reflects in our work.”
Do trends influence your work?
“Trends most definitely influence our designs and the that we by, I think everyone is always looking for aspects of their wedding to be unique yet also on trend.”
“The other side is that there is always a place for tradition in some shape or form at a wedding and most people want to include the something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue traditional items so we do our best to make sure we have a clear concession from our client.”
“We offer suggestions and ideas we think could work well with what we had in mind, this could be a trend that hadn’t yet heard about, that’s where we pride ourselves on keeping up with all the latest wedding trends.”
Whats your greatest achievement?
“My greatest achievement to date is the success start of both my businesses despite the fact I had my baby girl in the midst of it all a year ago and I already had a 15 month old son.”
“It has definitely been challenging and still is but I am passionate about being a mum and about Beau so you find the energy when you love what you do.”
“It was lovely to be recognised by Mumpreneur UK and named as finalist in the best start up category for Beau Baskets in September 2013 and then in January Jacqueline Gold named Beau Brides & Weddings as her first WOW winners of the year – stating it was an excellent idea.”
“There are days when you wonder are you doing things right etc then some days you’ll land a great account, get a really interesting bespoke order or notified of the above accolades and it really makes your day.”
Whats the future for Beau Brides & Weddings?
“The future of our company is really exciting, we are currently re vamping the website and we are adding Bridal & Wedding Showers planning & co-ordination to the our list of Bespoke services.”
“I am a fully qualified wedding & event planner, and my background is in co-ordinating weddings & events I really enjoyed planning intimate events and as Bridal Showers are gift centred it makes perfect sense to bring all my experience together and help create beautiful bridal showers.”
“I am also really excited that my sister, Sarah has joined the team and we are now partnering Beau Brides & Weddings together & the 3rd leg of Beau with a really unique venture that we are set to launch in October – so watch this space!”
Thank you so much to Laura for sharing an insight into her Business and these fabulous gift towers and hampers.
Its just such a lovely thought to be able to give such a lovely and personalised gift to those that help and support us in the most important days f our lives.
