Gorgeous styling items

Sophie has such a beautiful range of hire items, that really elevated the look of our wedding. She was fantastic at keeping in touch and gave me brilliant advice when I sought advice on what would look best etc. Really reasonable prices too.

Knowledgable about styling but disappointing customer service

I had a lovely conversation with Sophie in January. She is clearly very knowledgeable about styling and gave lots of good tips about organising and styling the wedding. I was interested in her journey and felt that she was friendly and that I could really trust her.

My original quote seemed reasonable but there were a few items on there which I didn’t actually need or want or were my understanding of what were agreed in our phonecall. Sophie quickly amended this.

I was happy with the quotation but felt like I needed to go back to the venue to check I needed what I thought I did. I am also a cautious person and I like to fully weigh everything up.

In this time, Sophie emailed me multiple times to ask if I still wanted to use their services. There were some things that I was concerned about logistically (we had an agreement that I would collect vases on the week so I could add flowers but on reflection I was worried this would add more stress to the week due to the distance I would need to travel).

To solve it all, I chose different items of the same price which I wouldn’t need to collect so that my quotation would stay the same. Despite not wanting the stress of picking up the vases, I wanted to make sure that if I was using Sophie’s services that I wasn’t being cheeky and asking for a reduced expenditure.

Sophie then informed me that there had been a change and she was now adding a minimum spend depending on distance which I would short fall on. She then quoted the original quote back at me (with the items I didn’t ask for) and said she would honour this but no less. She said the changes I had made were about £300 less than the original agreement but that was utterly untrue. The amount I was spending on hiring was staying the same as the last agreed quotation so with the styling fee, delivery and collection costs I was not unreasonably asking if I could spend £300 less.

Also, she quoted the terms and conditions at me to say things can change after 21 days (there were about 70 days between the quotation and this communication) so this is fair enough. However, we had a verbal understanding and I don’t understand why she kept chasing me when my most recent quotation was under the new minimum spend and at no point was the change communicated.

I also wanted to understand why there were different minimum spends based on distance when delivery and collection were already accounted for on the quotation. I’ve never seen this before and I felt as a customer I have a right to understand why I am being asked to spend more money. Sophie explained this to me but then said she felt uncomfortable that she had had to justify a business decision so she couldn’t help further.

I feel that it is unreasonable to ask for more money after a verbal understanding and not feel that you should explain why to the customer. It also showed a lack of attempt on Sophie’s behalf to resolve anything.

I now don’t feel like I can trust Sophie as a supplier as the goal post shifted and she didn’t like it when I wanted to understand why. I don’t feel like I could work with someone who doesn’t have good communication skills with their customer.

I hope Sophie can learn from this and not be so defensive about her business decisions. It will also be important for her to be more open to resolve any issues that arise with her potential customers without quickly rejecting their business as she is clearly good at the styling part of what she does.

All of the time spent communicating with Sophie hasn’t ended how I expected (I was sure if I was hiring anyone it would be her) but hopefully for others it will be a more positive experience.

If you want a stress free set up, hire Sophie!

Sophie has a wonderful eye for detail and styling. Her hire items are lovely and it's hard to limit yourself to not hiring them all! My taste was outside Sophie's understated, classic wedding style but she ran with it and embraced the colour and fun feel I wanted for our wedding. On the day she was invaluable and our plain venue was transformed into a fiesta. Sophie as a person is calm, friendly and professional. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her styling and hire service to anyone. She is so responsive and lovely, I can't fault her service.

Sophie made our day just perfect!

Sophie is sooo good at what she does, we couldn’t rate her highly enough! From start to finish our experience with Sophie was incredible. She was fast to respond and so helpful, she came up with so many suggestions for styling our venue and products she thought would work. She went above and beyond to help us achieve the wedding of our dreams!

I was originally thinking of doing the styling myself but I am so glad we hired Sophie to help. She certainly has an eye for detail and I’m so grateful we found her. It took all of the stress away and allowed for me to be able to relax and enjoy our special day. It would simply not have been the same without her. Thank you Sophie!!

Amazing Experience for Wedding

Working with Sophie was a wonderful experience. From our first interaction she was professional, friendly and approachable. Sophie listened to our aims for our wedding styling and worked brilliantly with us to achieve our desired look. Our venue looked beautiful and we received so many compliments on the styling. We would wholeheartedly recommend Second From the Right for your occasion.

Candlestick Hire

Sophie was so helpful and amazing to work with. She was super organised and sorted everything with my venue, I didn't have to worry about anything, the whole process was so smooth. The candlesticks I hired looked beautiful and really brought my table together on the wedding day

Lovely Items and Lovely Experience

I would 100% recommend Second from the Right to anyone looking to hire items for their wedding. Everything is really good quality, reasonably priced and fantastically well communicated and coordinated. Sophie could not have been more accommodating and supportive. She gave great advice on what would look good in our venue and alongside our own items and she was absolutely spot on. The collection/returns process was straightforward and I loved that because we'd hired the items we weren't left with loads of things to organise or sell after our event.

A Pleasure to Work With

Sophie and I recently worked together for my best friends wedding and I cannot recommend her and her styling services more highly.
Sophie was fantastic at communicating before the big day and more than happy to answer any questions and do a FaceTime to finalise the styling requirements.
She arrived on time with biggest smile and ready to get to work! Her enthusiasm for weddings and putting the extra stamp on an event just shone through.
We worked together to create a stunning aisle backdrop, a wedding breakfast set up and several styled areas throughout the venue. Sophie just totally understood the brief and the vibe the bride was going for and absolutely went above and beyond to create an amazing wedding scene.
I look forward to working with Sophie in the future and will be recommending her to anyone who needs a wedding/ event styling service.
Thank you Sophie!

Sophie was wonderful

Sophie was fab! She really understood my vision and helped me execute perfectly. Lovely ideas without being imposing. Great communication and super flexible. Having her there on the day also gave me the piece of mind I needed knowing everything would go smoothly! Would absolutely recommend

I couldn’t recommend Sophie at Second From The Right any more. We used her for our wedding in December and she truly went above and beyond, nothing was too much to ask.
