Ambience Venue Styling are offering an exciting opportunity to join their professional and rewarding Wedding Styling Franchise. Ambience are now looking for more franchisees to accommodate the high demand for Ambience services throughout the UK.
Whilst weddings are the main business, Ambience stylists also provide venue styling for other celebratory events such as anniversaries, christenings, important birthdays or even school proms.
Ambience’s expert stylists work closely with their couples to create a perfectly coordinated look using a combination of the couple’s ideas for their dream day and inspiration taken from years of experience in styling weddings.
Extra attention is paid to those all-important finishing touches that complete the unique and bespoke look of each wedding.
Ambience stylists also work with a close network of like-minded wedding suppliers within their territory such as florists, photographers and wedding dress boutiques to name but a few. All produce outstanding work, love what they do and above all are professional and trustworthy.
With this local knowledge, Ambience can provide their couples with a one stop shop for all of their wedding styling needs which allows them to deal with less suppliers and take the stress out of planning their wedding day.
Ambience Venue Styling was established in 2006 and over the past 12 years they have built a fantastic industry reputation across the UK – they have even been featured on TV! They are a progressive network and have seen great success since their launch.
Ambience are proud to have 26 stylists now operating across the United Kingdom.
Ambience is a nationally recognised brand and they have been working with couples on their wedding styling since 2006. Their couples have the reassurance that they are a reputable and reliable company that they can trust.
Outstanding customer care makes Ambience stand out from their competitors. Their friendly and helpful wedding venue stylists genuinely care about what they do and are passionate about delivering exceptional customer service.
Ambience have a page on their website dedicated to their Ambience Promises, all their venue stylists live by these promises and always go the extra mile where needed.
In addition to their great customer service, Ambience have an extensive styling range providing 100s of on-trend styling items at your fingertips.
The Ambience styling bank is one of the best things about joining the franchise, no independent wedding stylist can compete with their bank of venue styling items – it’s the largest in the UK and it’s growing all the time.
Subsidised rates on stock hire enables everyone to make a profit, and even better hire fees are payable after the event has taken place, which helps our stylists manage cash flow.
Ambience knows that the administration side of running a business can be daunting and time consuming which is why they developed AMBA, your own virtual assistant. AMBA handles all of your enquiries, stock requests, bookings and invoices so that you can focus on delivering a world-class service.

You will respond to enquiries, meet with couples and carry out styling consultations, fulfil bookings, meet with contacts and venues to build business relationships and network with other like-minded wedding professionals that are in your territory.

No two days are the same for Ambience stylists, however there are busier days of the week that you will need to take in to account. The Ambience franchise will require you to work some weekends in peak season, which in turn will allow you to keep your week days flexible.
It is worth noting that every Ambience stylist spends 30-40 hours on their business each week.

The best bit is the feedback and hearing the most wonderful comments about your input into the day and what a difference the styling made!Donna Wojtas - Bradford & Halifax Franchisee
Starting a business can be very daunting, to know that we were joining a well-established national network made our decision a lot easier. Now, we can be our own boss and know that all the work we put in is going to benefit ourselves. Nothing is ever too silly and there will always be someone who knows the answer or who can help - both Head Office and Stylists. It’s like a little Ambience family.Emma Pearson & Adam Richmond - Teesside Franchisees
Joining Ambience has allowed my husband and I the change in lifestyle we were searching for. Back in 2008 I was ready for a fresh challenge and my husband, Gareth, was disillusioned with his current employment. Each of us brings something different to the business which has enabled us to compensate for each other’s weaknesses whilst exploiting the other’s strengths.Sandie Edgar - Edinburgh Franchisee
