This month on the suppliers spotlight is the amazing Lindsey’s Lending Emporium. I have worked alongside Lindsay for a few weddings now was over the moon to meet her at the Dereham wedding show back in February. She has so many beautiful things to complete your wedding day.
I’m totally delighted to introduce Lindsey’s so that she can tell you a little bit more about her business ….
I have been married for 37 years to the same man. On my wedding day I rung the church bells as I was a campanologist. I have one daughter, one grand daughter and another grand child on the way. I have one cat, who you will sometimes see in my photos on my business page. I built my business from scratch my husband helps me a lot as for the last 2 years I have had FND Functional Neurological Disorder – this is why you don’t often see me at wedding fairs and why I can’t deliver or set up items. Over the last 2 years my little business has given me the motivation to keep going.
How long you been in business?
What made you want to set up your business?
I was looking for a career change from teaching. I love making displays and coming up with new ideas.
What’s the best part of your job?
Talking to couples about their special day and building relationships with them. Also I love buying new stock.
What’s the worst part of your job?
Not ever seeing couples again once their big day is over.
What’s the weirdest request you’ve ever had from a client?
Someone asked if they could hire my duck ornament which I keep in the garden.
What’s been your favourite ever wedding you’ve worked on/at?
It has to be my daughter’s of course.
You’re surrounded by beauty in your job. What do you find beautiful?
Everything really, all our props, the couples photos, the flowers, venues, the couples themselves – the list is endless.
Best piece of advice to offer to those getting married
Marriages aren’t made in heaven, they come in kit form and you have to put them together yourselves.
Best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Never go to sleep on an argument.
You – lets have some fun
Where do you call home?
Charlie Emmas Boutique or Emmas Boutique in Dereham
Recently had a meal at the George in Dereham and it was Fab!
Officer and a Gentleman
Cocktail/Drink of Choice?
Red wine or Gin and lemonade.
Do you collect anything?
I love collecting vintage items and antiques especially if they have a history to go with them.
What’s the most romantic thing someone’s ever done for you?
This is a hard one. I am lucky enough to have a very romantic husband and he is always doing romantic things for me. One particular thing springs to mind – our wedding photo which we had displayed in a frame on the windowsill had faded quite badly due to the sun, so one day, in secret, he went to a photographers and asked them to reprint it and he had it re-framed and gave it to me as a surprise on Christmas day. Perhaps that’s why we have been married for 37 years!
Where do you go to let your hair down?
Love going to see ska bands and Northern Soul
Tell us your favourite Instagram accounts at the moment!
I am a bit of a dinosaur when it comes to Instagram, I have only just joined so am learning the ropes. I have to support my daughter in this one so my favourite is mamas_mind_menu
If you could change one thing in the world what would it be?
For the world to live in harmony.
Thank you so much Lindsey’s it has been great to get to know you and thank you for taking the time out to do this. I look forward to seeing you again soon.
