The story behind the rebrand, from eco planner to intimate wedding designer and planner in Cornwall.
Some of you may know that The Little Details by Sophie started as an eco wedding planning business, I'm not going to lie, this year has not gone how I (or anyone) expected it to go. Lockdowns have been difficult and there have been so many new rules and regulations to get our heads around, but it has made me realise a few things; being told I can't see my family makes me miss them so much more, our small and local businesses need us more than ever and small, intimate weddings don't actually sound like a bad idea.
My first shoot made me realise I'm not a simple, modern, sleek kinda person. I love colour and being bold, I love portraying memories and focussing on personalised little details and I love having a black book of small businesses to use. I also realised I love designing weddings a lot more than I thought I did.
I love supporting small, in fact I've pledged to only use small local businesses for Christmas. You get a much more personalised experience and you're also helping pay for someones little girl to go to swimming lessons, instead of putting money in the pockets of big corporate companies.
I believe the best way to ensure these goals are hit is to focus on small weddings so I'm taking a new direction. The Little Details by S will focus on designing and planning small, intimate weddings, weddings under 60 people in Cornwall. With a more intimate guest list, I can help you create a personal and unforgettable experience for you and your guests, inspired by your story and memories.
A small wedding doesn't mean it has to be any less of a celebration, you can spend money on things you want rather than the things you need, you can get creative with your menu, your seating arrangements and your favours, to name a few things and you can spend more individual time with loved ones (I can imagine we all want a lot more of this with the year we have had!).
I haven't dropped the eco ethos either (I don't think I ever could!), although, it is much easier to focus on being environmentally friendly when the event is small and the businesses you're working with are actually humans who reply to your email and not an automated robot. You don't need to use plastic or anything disposable for small weddings and I can ensure everything is local and sustainably sourced.
I am so excited for this new direction. I can't wait to help design and plan weddings for couples who want a small, intimate wedding in Cornwall full of memories, new non-traditional traditions (thats a tongue twister, say it fast!) and personalised details.
