Inspired Island Events - supplier feature

Creative venue styling & hire

You have both sat down and discussed your wildest dreams for your wedding day and have perhaps come to some decisions on a theme and what features you would like to have on your day. The next bit is planning how and when you will make these ideas happen. You will want your wedding day to represent who you are as a couple, whether it be sci-fi enthusiast, world travellers, lovers of all things bright and neon, the post war years styling and fashion or whatever it may be (the possibilities are endless). Achieving what you are imagining is where todays featured supplier can help.

Christopher Kill and his team at Inspired Island Events in Lake have been making waves on the Island this wedding season and for good reason too. They have had a packed diary full of weddings they have been managing a combination of the venue styling, stationery or in fact the whole event. Alongside the bulk of his work, showcasing his creative skills in photo shoots and at wedding events so couples can see the range of possibilities with venue styling in person.

A very good ethos Chris adheres to is that each couple and their wedding day will be different (after all no 2 people in this world are the same) so there is no such thing as a package when looking to have your venue styled by Inspired Island Events. You can tailor make your wedding day with a private consultation in the calm of the Lake showroom surrounded by a vast selection of the options available to you. The beauty of tailoring each wedding quote is that each budget can be accommodated whilst still ending up with the day you are imagining.

There is always the option of DIT – Doing It Together and we admire anyone willing to take on the time and effort it will take to get it all done. Take a look at our blog post on DIT to help you make up your mind. One of our final thoughts in the post is that you will find that someone, for example, as experienced at venue styling and event management as Inspired Island Events may cost you a little more (and we mean that genuinely and only monetarily, emotionally the efforts to do everything together with your friends and family will ’cost’) but you will have high quality results without lifting a finger.

 

It is worth speaking to Inspired Island Events to see what they can suggest for you and to create a tailored quote to suit your needs. Experienced in many of the venues with great relationships with fellow wedding industry businesses on the Island, it is a great place to start and potentially end your search for your entire venue styling needs.

Here is a little more from Chris himself on Inspired Island Events so you can get a feel for who, how and why he loves his job.

 

When did Inspired Island Events start and why?

Inspired was founded in 2010 as there was a clear need for a quality venue styling service on the Isle of Wight

 

Why the Isle of Wight?

I love the Island and it is a fantastic place for weddings and special events…people are drawn here to have fun and celebrate!

How has your business grown?

When the business first started it was home based with consultations at venues. We now have a boutique showroom in Lake and through word-of-mouth recommendations our bookings have rapidly grown and we work with many Island venues and have excellent relationships with some fantastic Island wedding businesses.

 

Who are the team?

The team consists of myself (Chris, a former wedding venue coordinator and trained wedding planner), Jo our in-house florist, Rachel our in-house stationer and a small team of assistant venue stylists.

 

What are the main wedding services you offer?

We offer a complete service from an initial consultation and advice to: wedding planning, venue styling, wedding decoration hire, chair cover hire, full service set-up, flowers, stationery, favours and balloons. 

 

Do you offer anything that a client might not know about?

We offer a complimentary consultation service with refreshments in our boutique showroom. We can transform a venue with drapes, chair covers, centerpieces etc and also offer a full dinner service set-up including table cloths, cutlery, glasses and crockery.

What is the future for Inspired Island Events?

We are going to continue to provide an excellent service and build on our success and good reputation for reliability, friendliness and quality.

 

What differentiates you from other venue styling and hire businesses on the Isle of Wight?

We provide a wide range of quality decorations and a fully bespoke service….no two weddings are the same. We listen to what our brides want and tailor their wedding to suit their unique style, personality and budget.

 

You are sure to bump into Chris and his team and one of the many wedding events on the Island this winter, however, he will be happy to hear from you before then to arrange a consultation to discuss your wedding day. We think it is always best to consider each option when wedding planning to ensure you aren’t setting yourself up for a mammoth DIT task when someone could take it off your hands.
