So, here I am…..Danielle Donnelly the face behind the business that is Faithful Designs.
In a spotlight interview with Military Wedding Discounts I was asked
“What inspired you to start your business?”…
For as long as I can remember I have been passionate about all areas of art and design. I love to be creative and let my imagination run wild!
When planning my own wedding I found it so frustrating having to use so many different companies and even more frustrating when I could literally hear the sounds “chi ching” when mentioning the word wedding. I searched for ages trying to find stationery that was a little different to everyone else’s but at the same time wouldn’t swallow up half of our wedding budget….needless to say I drew a blank so decided to make my own.
My fiancé was away in Afghanistan whilst I planned the wedding so I literally had free reign and honestly enjoyed every minute of it, from making the “Save the dates” to dressing the venue. I received so many lovely compliments about the stationery and all the personal touches, I even started getting orders from family and friends to do theirs.
Over the last four years so much has happened, I’ve had two beautiful babies, moved house twice and turned a part time hobby into a full time business. I have spent countless hours researching the industry and forming good working relationships with fellow wedding businesses so that I can help those planning their events in any way that I can.
I always feel so honoured when chosen to be part of someone else’s special day which I guess leads me back to the above question about what inspired me to start my business and continues to inspire me…..helping to make someones dreams come true x
