When it comes to planning your wedding there is so much to consider, not least the suppliers you choose to provide the services that turn your day from good to ‘WOW’ yet it is so difficult to know who you can trust and to know you are getting good value for money. The wedding market is like no other with so many ‘businesses’ running without premises and in many instances without following appropriate legislation. We started Frily’s Boutique with one goal in mind – to be a trusted, nationwide one stop wedding shop providing exceptional quality with fantastic value for money, but most importantly providing confidence to brides to know that they truly have a wedding specialist supplying all aspects of their day so they can rest easy and focus on enjoying their day.
We are a limited company, VAT registered with a business address on public record, and hold a 5 star food hygiene rating. All our electrical equipment is PAT tested and we hold full public liability and professional indemnity insurance – everything you would expect from a responsible company. Details of these can be viewed in your My Account area.
We have invested in infrastructure and technology to bring expected capabilities in any other sector to the wedding market – view availability in the comfort of your own home online, pay your deposit and then manage your booking including making payments off your balance in your My Account area – no contact forms or uncomfortable ‘sales led’ consultations requiring lots of information from you just to check if your date is free.
We are working hard behind the scenes to bring even more choice for our brides, and easier ways to communicate and manage your bookings whilst expanding our team and delivery radius to achieve our goal of a nationwide one stop wedding shop.
Do you feel that the price spirals when you mention ‘wedding’? I did, and I decided to do something about it. I set up Frily’s Boutique with a very clear philosophy – high quality venue dressing, event hire and photography for a reasonable price.
A lot of people ask me how we are able to keep our prices low, and the answer is we keep our overheads low, our proposition simple and we have an infrastructure that enables us to fulfil multiple events efficiently without losing the personal touch.
This philosophy has turned Frily’s Boutique into one of the fastest growing wedding brands in the UK and has put us on the path to becoming the first nationally recognised, one stop wedding shop.
I set Frily’s Boutique up with Natalie and supported her in her goal of running her own business. Before I knew it we were so busy I joined on a full time basis too!
My main role in the business is organising the logistics – we can do up to 10 weddings a day, so making sure everything runs smoothly is paramount!
Keeping Frily’s up to date with technology – giving you the ability to book online, interact with products and truly understand your day!
Within the next 12 months I’ll be working to bring this in an app, build on our infrastructure and even work with Natalie in opening our 2nd and 3rd warehouse.”
"As the creative wedding manager I get to be involved in many parts of the business! One of my main roles is to make all the cakes we sell. This is something I absolutely love doing - taking a picture, a message, an idea from a couple and bringing that to life is incredible. I also play a big role in the day to day running of the business - I speak with all our fantastic customers via social media, keep you up to date on what we're doing and what's coming next and process customer orders. I am also trained in both photography and venue dressing so also get to fulfil orders that I've taken - this for me is my favourite part! I'm a people person - making people happy is what I do best!"
"My job at Frily's is to make all the personalised gifts including; coat hangers, flutes, bags, robes, slippers, pint glasses and so much more! I absolutely love my creations and making customers happy is what I pride myself on. I also make all the flowers! Flowers are my passion - I love creating a flower arrangement for a wedding - from the buttonholes to the bouquets, making sure every member of the bridal party has something beautiful to hold or wear is what I love!"
"My role at Frily's is a varied one! I primarily work as a photographer and venue dresser - creating memories for couples that will last a lifetime. I love being part of a wedding, capturing moments you may not see during your day but moments you can look back on and love. Not only that, being able to dress these venues before I start the photography means I get to be part of every aspect of your day. I also work in the warehouse when I'm not out at weddings making sure all our rental items are pristine before they go out on hire. This is such an important job as we pride ourselves on our beautiful items and making sure they're perfect is all part of that."
