Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market ‘Cover and Style’, a brand-new, recolatable Wedding and Event Styling business.
Have you ever dreamed of owning your own wedding and events business? If so, this could be the perfect business opportunity for you.
No previous experience is necessary as full training is provided over 2- 4 days, with follow up sessions if required.
This is a brand-new business opportunity with everything in place for the new owner to begin trading as a venue stylist, including a registered trading name, a web-site, liability insurance and a comprehensive list of wedding props, products and samples.
This is a business opportunity that is ideal for someone seeking a better work-life balance as it involves flexible trading hours. The new owner can build the business around a schedule that suits them.
This type of business would suit an owner who enjoys seeking out new trends and decorative ideas on social media such as Pinterest and Facebook as much of the marketing required to promote the business will involve being active in these forms of social media. A live web-site has be developed and designed for the new owner to swiftly and easily control from day one.
This business has been set up using a proven business model, tried and tested by our client who has run their own, very successful wedding & event business for over 14 years.
The business involves styling venues for Weddings and Events. The majority of the work involves decorating chairs with covers and sashes and supplying room decorations and table centrepieces such as flowers and/or balloons.
All the assets provided in this sale have been carefully organised and selected to create a complete business package. All the props and products are brand new and full training will be offered to the buyer if required.
Full training will take place during the initial handover period, so no previous experience is necessary.
However, training can be tailored to suit individual needs, so this business would suit a florist, for example, who is looking to expand into full venue décor.
Training will be offered by industry experts, who have a wealth of experience and practical knowledge of the wedding and events industry.
Professional guidance will also be available to help the new owner plan and prepare for wedding fayres, exhibitions and promotional stands.
