I’ve always been amazed by the amount of props Not Your Average I Do have. Over the years I have seen their collection grow and it’s great to hear that Kelly and her team will be having their own showroom – Congratulations!
Tell us about the Not Your Average I Do: Not Your Average I Do was started as my own personal mission to create unique wedding days for couples. When I got married myself, I went out of my way to find things that were a bit different and unusual to style my venue and couldn’t believe how much extra work it added to the day. After 10 years in corporate events I knew that I could really help the wedding industry create some beautiful and unique weddings. I absolutely love my job!
What does your Not Your Average I Do offer couples? We work with couples to understand who they are and what they are looking for on their big day, we then use our understanding and experience to create themes, ideas and general mood boards of how they might like their wedding day to look. With a network of only the very best wedding suppliers we can get involved with everything from start to finish or just dip into part of their day to add those extra special touches which make their wedding even more memorable.
Do you have a favourite wedding that you worked on? It would be wrong to have a favourite wedding, all our couples are so unique and each of their big days are so special. Our most unique venue so far is probably the wine store at the Bluebell vineyard – it had never been used as a venue and this couple wanted to have their ceremony in there. It made for a really romantic atmosphere with the fairy light canopy reflecting off the wine bottles which surrounded the room.
What exciting things does Not Your Average I Do have planned for 2017? It is a big year for us and we are so excited to announce we will be opening our very own showroom complete with exquisite Lantern Lounge so couples can come and visit us, see and touch some of the props for themselves and of course see our very popular hanging lanterns in the Lantern Lounge.
