Hello! My name is Athena and I am the owner and founder of Lovingly Styled.
I decided to start up my small business whilst planning my own wedding as I just absolutely loved decor design and organising all the little details! I am actually trained as a teacher but have chosen to move into wedding and events styling purely because of my passion for all things pretty and the desire to create a completely beautiful vision for your special day or celebration! I have a degree in English and Classical Civilisation from Royal Holloway University of London and definitely see myself as a people person! I love love and I love making people happy, so what better business to be in!
I am a mum to two gorgeous little boys, who are my primary motivation for building a successful business, and I recently got married myself (so I totally understand the need for a stress free planning process and wedding day!). I love to form a personal relationship with you as I do think it is important to work together and communicate thoroughly in order to achieve the perfect result for you!
Event styling is all about the first impression, when you and your guests first walk into a room and the decor truly sparks the WOW factor, leaving a lasting impression in everybody’s memories and, of course, in the photographs from your lovely day! This is what I aim to provide for you, an unforgettable day filled with beautiful items which reflect you and your style! Nothing is too much trouble, please feel free to ask questions, send me pinterest inspiration and request bespoke items! I would love to help x
Onto the technical, practical part of the business! This is Lynford, my husband and daddy to our two babies! Many of our hire items are handmade bespoke pieces, and they are all down to this man here!
He is a mechanic by trade and is a fantastic all-round handyman, with skills ranging from woodwork to metalwork. Lynford loves to be creative and is always happy to resolve practical problems and make bespoke pieces for you!
I am always coming up with ideas for props and have a vision in my head which Lynford so easily makes a reality. He has the ability to share my vision, convert that into the correct materials, measurements and tools and produce a beautifully finished piece!
We are 100% a team and hope you can see that we have all areas covered, whether you want to do DIY bits yourself or would like to hire a range of items, including personalised and handmade pieces, we can offer you a wide variety of options!
We hope you love our little family business as much as we do and we look forward to hearing from you to discuss your plans! x
