This wedding was our first ever wedding as Owl + Bear ๐Ÿฆ‰๐Ÿป !! And of course just had to be at @sandalford_weddings_ ๐Ÿ˜‰
Back in 2015 when I first started Owl + Bear we did it all... styling, lighting AND furniture!! Over the years we have cut out some of the services #soznotsoz and have narrowed it down to one skill - furniture ๐ŸคŸ๐Ÿผ We hands down started the โ€œpallet furniture + wooden tablesโ€ and had many a copy cat ๐Ÿฑ but we didnโ€™t let that stop us!! ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ Times are a changing again for us ๐Ÿ˜ฑ and I will be sharing a few of our favourite weddings and events over the last 3 and a halfish years over the coming weeks. ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค Whoโ€™s excited for a stroll down memory lane?! โ˜บ๏ธ This stroll features @daveandcharlotte on photography and one of the biggest flower queens ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿฝ out @signaturefloraldesign on her FIRST hanging install too!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ how far have we both come huh?!?! ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Ps.

Communication is KEY ๐Ÿ”‘ when planning weddings and events. Coz Iโ€™ve been doing this for 10 years Iโ€™ve seen ALL of the things ๐Ÿง and Iโ€™ve learnt never to assume anything! ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ I always ask the right questions, make sure I have everything all organised before your day and I do my best to make sure my process is as smooth as possible. โ˜บ๏ธ You will get a bajillion emails from me about floor plans, T+Cโ€™s and deposits... (vendors can vouch for that! ๐Ÿ˜œ) but thatโ€™s because I actually care about giving you a great product and service and I want to provide these to you to the best of my ability.
I must be doing something right when clients vouch for me! ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค ๐Ÿฆ‰ + ๐Ÿป..... #buckingthetrends โœŒ๐Ÿผ

Why the side hustle of Social media?! ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ
To educate small businesses about the ins and outs of the gram ๐Ÿ“ฑ and to get your content, feeds AND stories looking as fresh as your cons when you first put them on ๐Ÿ˜Ž (how do people keep them white?! ๐Ÿค”) Because socials is fun and they a SUPER important tool to gain trust, loyalty and respect โœŠ๐Ÿผ of your target audience over time which will then turn into sales. ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ
You guys will see some big changes all up in hurrr by the end of the year and I CANNOT wait to share! ๐Ÿค๐Ÿค In the meantime stalk my stories and check out what gram campaigns fit with your business by clicking da link in bio ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ BEFORE it all changes!! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

The Owl & Bear story... Back in 2014 I was coming to the end of my contract with another event business that no longer exists... (thank goodness coz I was setting up chaircovers!!๐Ÿคข) I had to sort my shit out quick smart! I thought I donโ€™t wanna do the 9-5 thing sitting in an office at a computer all day ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝโ€๐Ÿ’ป - I love being creative and Iโ€™m SO not done with weddings yet!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Over the Xmas / New year break of 2015 Owl and Bear was born!! ๐Ÿฆ‰ ๐Ÿป Matt and I were sitting in our new home we just bought ๐Ÿก and started brainstorming business names.
Owl and Bear are our spirit animals (Iโ€™m the bear for those of you playing at home ๐Ÿป ๐Ÿป ) then came the branding and this was SO easy because I knew my target audience and I knew what products I was putting out into the market. This is a quintessential part of your own story. Branding. Itโ€™s not just a pretty logo - itโ€™s your personality ๐Ÿ˜œ, itโ€™s how you speak on socials and itโ€™s how you respond to your emails (including those out of offices - yes I read them!!) In the next few weeks I will be sharing my brands story and where O+B is headed for the future!! Exciting things happening guys!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ One babe that has her branding on point is the ever talented @samanthasimone_photography shown here with our Mable white frame and furniture with @rose.and.bud blooms ๐Ÿฅ€
