Bit of a background on you:
I’m on the wrong side of 30, a happily married lady, a mum to 3 gorgeous children and I’ve come to realise that I’m a total wedding junkie! It’s a good job I started my own business in an industry I absolutely adore! I have been a sales manager and customer service manager for a number of years and feel that I can offer a personalised service to my brides, at a time when they are anxious about every last detail.
Background on your business:
I started Mia Rose because I am passionate about weddings, and I want to be able to provide brides with a service they can trust. I have items ranging from £5.99 up to £100.00 and try my best to provide designs that are not only beautiful, but affordable – especially in this budget conscious climate. My style ranges from contemporary to a truly vintage feel with a bespoke service available for brides who would like something creating totally unique to them.
What is your favourite piece?
Ooooh, it’s hard to choose! I recently made a bespoke tiara band for a bride who is getting married in Greece and wanted a Grecian inspired design. So she asked me to re-style her a double banded version of the ‘Leah’ tiara. It made me wonder why I designed it as a single band in the first place – it turned out beautifully and the lady I design it for loved it too!
Where does your inspiration come from?
I am a typical Libran – I love the finer things in life….the beautiful things! Everybody loves a little sparkle from time to time, but I also am a firm believer in ‘Less is More’ – I try to design my items with a feel of understated elegance and so far this is proving very favourable with my clients.
Advice to brides about selecting their headpiece, any tips or things to remember?
I guess there are lots of things to bear in mind when choosing a tiara or hair accessory and I recently did an editorial on this subject which I hope helps prospective brides. It’s here
on my website.
Anything else you’d like to add?
I am constantly listening to what brides want and keeping my eyes on what styles are influencing the bridal industry. Most recently, and in collaboration with my lovely friend Margaret of www.dream-veils.co.uk, I am and delighted and excited about the forthcoming launch of ‘Fusion’, a collection of beautiful vintage style veils, featuring birdcage designs with exquisite adornments. 2011 has already got off to a great start, and I am looking forward to what else the year and beyond has to bring.
I am committed to exceptional customer service and attention to detail. I am thrilled to have 100% positive feedback from my brides and want to attain that feedback every single time I despatch an order. What sets Mia Rose apart from its competitors? That’s simple…..it’s the quality of our service and customer satisfaction – we specialise in making brides happy!
