Chosen was an idea born of frustration! Having become engaged I set out rather excitedly looking around various wedding fairs only to be faced with a lack of inspiration. Deflated at each turn, I was left wondering whether there really was anything out there to help turn planning my wedding into a fun, creative and joyful experience.
With a background in both sales, design and fine art photography I set about creating something that today I have to admit, I’m completely proud of.
Six years ago I started a designer maker market, with much the same values as I hold today – to showcase designer makers work that truly deserves to be more widely seen and available. As a company we are so happy to support small businesses not only because that’s how we started, but because we know that expressing individuality means looking outside of the mainstream to places like somebody’s kitchen table, studio, or shed to uncover treasures.
Three years on, we’re just about to launch our #weddingrevolution campaign, taking the show on the road nationwide in Spring 2015 to uncover even more talent and bring that to today’s engaged couples, I couldn’t be more excited and I hope you’ll join us.
