I’m Julie Nicholls – Founder and Creator of Julie Nicholls Weddings and Events.
I began in the wedding industry over 30 years ago in London. I started as a small sole trader, selling stationery to stylish boutique gift shops whilst also working a busy full-time job.
During this time, I was approached to create an exclusive range of wedding stationery for Richard Branson’s 'Virgin Bride’ store in Central London.
It was this that ignited my love for everything wedding related, through all the knowledge and experience I have gained, this is still the spark that keeps me going today whether its full planning for your event, or my bespoke styling service.
Both Harrods and Selfridges have also stocked my luxury designs, and I have been blessed with fabulous opportunities from working with great couples at beautiful venues and to sell my work worldwide.
You’ll find my love of creativity and strong attention to detail evident in my unique atelier studio, a bespoke space where I love to share inspiration with my clients.
The French language has always fascinated me, and although I haven’t quite mastered speaking it, j’adore the romance of the culture, and on my desk, you will find Chanel, Dior and other beautiful books inspired by some iconic designers. A good book and a cup of fresh coffee is my idea of Heaven!
I have a devotion to architecture, fashion & textiles; I am always amazed by how much they inspire my creativity. I believe that something doesn’t have to be grand or expensive, but how it is presented is fundamental.
When I’m not in work and wedding mode, I spend my precious time with my family.
My husband and I have two gorgeous daughters and have experienced being parents of the bride (that is a story for another day!). I am now a grandma to little Hugo, my own HRH (and yes, they are his initials!)
I enjoy different extremes, as I love both the cold and the hot. Skiing down a snowy mountain is just as exciting for me as a relaxed beach vacation or bustling city break. I do thoroughly enjoy informal evenings with friends at home, a good walk and I don’t even mind the rain!
I so look forward to meeting you, and sharing your journey to an amazing day,
