The Normans

Laura styled our venue for our wedding on 30th May and we were so pleased! From day one, she offered expert advice, suggestions and guidance, listening carefully to our own ideas and building on these to create the style we had in mind.  When we first saw the venue on the day, it was even better than we ever could have imagined. We were blown away by the attention to detail! For the ceremony we had the blossom trees at the beginning of our aisle and they looked incredible! All of our guests were talking about them. I couldn’t recommend her enough, thank you!

Marie Rotchell - May 30, 2018


Thank you so much for decorating my ceremony room, for making my seating plan and for the other finishing touches around the venue. Oh and for accommodating my last minute seating plan changes!

Merchant Adventurers Hall

Laura was amazing from the moment Rob and I met her. She understood completely the look I wanted and nothing was too much trouble. Choosing Laura as our stylist was absolutely one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. She helped us with some last-minute ideas and allowed me to add in some thoughtful extra touches that meant a lot to us both. The venue looked amazing on the day and Laura took meticulous care with each and every detail. We would most definitely recommend her to any couple planning their wedding. Thank you so much for everything!

Jess & Rob - May 26, 2018

The Parsonage Country House Hotel

Laura was amazing from start to finish. I was very nervous as I like doing everything myself and making sure it all looks perfect and in place but the room looked amazing when we arrived.  Everyone loved how beautifully made the petal heart was at the end of the aisle – we can’t thank you enough!

Rebecca O’hara - May 19, 2018

The Principal York

What can we say… Laura did the most amazing job with our venue and everyone commented on the decor, it couldn’t have been more perfect and we are forever grateful for helping making our wedding so perfect. Mr and Mrs Young xxx

Carlton Towers

We booked Ambience for our wedding at the end of March which was at Carlton Towers. When we met Laura we had no idea what we wanted/needed etc, but by the end of our meeting we were really happy and had a much better vision of what our wedding decorations would look like at the venue and which decorations we actually wanted. She gave us some great suggestions which we took on board as she had decorated our venue previously. On the day she got there in great time and got on with styling the place hassle free.She sorted everything we required from not only herself but from third parties like the florists and the company installing our dancefloor. Lovely girl and fantastic decorations. I would definitely recommend Ambience for wedding decorations, fab!

Hazlewood Castle

Laura recently styled our wedding at Hazlewood Castle on 3rd Feb.  It was absolutely perfect.  When we had our first initial meet i only had a vague idea about what i wanted but Laura’s experience in her work and the venue was out of this world and we left so excited and confident it would be amazing.  On the day we really couldn’t have asked for anything more, it was just a magical day and we had numerous compliments about how perfect everything was, right down to the sprinkling of the petals on the aisle and tables.  Laura is amazing at what she does and we really couldn’t be happier.  Highly recommended so thank you so much Laura xx

Chloe Hare - December 1, 2017

Carlton Towers

We booked our wedding for November 2017 and were set on a classic themed winter wedding.  We chose Carlton Towers as our venue which on its own is very opulent so we were quite specific about the type of venue stylist we required to ensure the styling complimented the setting.  As well as providing tea light arrangements for the tables and fireplaces, amazing chair covers and wedding post box, Laura also provided the most amazing winter walkway down the aisle.  It included winter trees and tea light baubles set on plinths, white aisle runner and beautiful candle arrangements which truly made the ceremony room feel like a winter wonderland.  Laura seems to have a million luxurious options available and keeps up to date with the latest trends.  As a bride who had planned the wedding pretty much on my own I was worried that things wouldn’t run smoothly on the day but Laura completely understood my vision and everything was arranged perfectly without fuss on the day.

Victoria Grayson - November 25, 2017

Hazlewood Castle

The first time we met Laura she was so lovely.  Everything was a bit overwhelming for us and we didn’t really know where to start but Laura went through everything, listened to our ideas and inspired us.  Our wedding was in November 2017 at Hazlewood Castle so we were very keen on having lots of candles and keeping a clean white, classic look.  When we saw her work on our wedding day we were absolutely amazed and thrilled to bits.The room where we got married was just simply beautiful and our reception room was incredible. So much work, care and consideration had gone into it.  As she knew the venue, she knew what would work and what wouldn’t. We’re so thrilled and couldn’t recommend Laura enough. Thank you!

Jenna Kettyle - November 18, 2017

The Principal York

To be honest I’m not sure where to start! From the moment we contacted Laura she was absolutely amazing.  She had so many ideas and knows her stuff – what works, what doesn’t, what’s too much etc.  I am so thankful for her being as she was because I was so indecisive and didn’t really know what I wanted.  She is so professional and so so talented.  The venue was decorated beautifully and down to the last pearl 🙂 Everyone commented on how gorgeous it all was and I cannot take credit.  I really can’t put into words how breath taking it all was.  I will never ever forget it.  Laura, simply, thank you.  You are talented and we are more grateful than you will ever know xxx

Emma Ollis - May 27, 2017

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Laura and her team for styling ur wedding at The Principal York, it looked absolutely amazing and the right choice was made with the blush sequin runners, they really set it off. Laura was very easy to deal with, and there were so many options to choose so that you could get your venue exactly how you’d imagined it for the big day. xx

Carlton Towers

Laura at Ambience Styling York is a dream to work with, she responded to emails quickly which is a godsend as a busy bride to be, came up with fantastic ideas and suggestions that we didn’t even know we wanted and topped it off with a quality result that surpassed any of our Pinterest boards! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.

Great service from Laura who made our ceremony room and tables look amazing! I would recommend her and the service to anyone! Thank you son much!

Rachael Barker - November 10, 2016

Merchant Adventurers Hall

Laura could not do enough for John and I when planning our wedding. We had two days and two venues to plan. When we met Laura, we had a vision of how we wanted our days, which were very different, to look. She listened carefully and added her own ideas and details as we went along. Our meeting was so easy as she understood the look and feel we wanted for our special events – we were immediately thinking in the same way. She goes above and beyond to keep in touch and keep you informed of how plans are going. It made our day when our guests said ‘Wow!’ As they entered our venue at the Merchant Adventurers Hall in York, she certainly got the Ambience perfect!

Deborah Taylor Curry - October 27, 2016


It was unbelievably easy and stress free leaving the finer details to Laura, and the result was just stunning. Couldn’t have asked for more, just perfect and exactly what we wanted. Don’t think we paid much more than if we’d have done it ourselves and our with a busy work and family life we couldn’t have been happier. Thank you!!!

Lois Pinder - October 14, 2016

The Parsonage Country House Hotel

5*! Well we’re to begin. Laura has been amazing from emailing straight back to me to setting up our wedding that was absolutely gorgeous. Could not believe how stunning the work ahead put into my wedding was. The detail to the tables and ceremony room was amazing. I highly recommend Ambience to any one who is wanting a bespoke look of there wedding with out the stress of doing it your self. I can not thank-you Laura enough for taking my ideas I gave you and giving me a look that was so much more than I expected 🙂 xxxxx

Tammy Wright - October 11, 2016

The service was amazing, I had a vision of what I wanted and Laura was great, friendly and professional, she recreated what I wanted perfectly. the team was professional and on time I knew I made a great choice when I saw the finished venue decorated it was perfect! Price was great as within my budget. Thank you for the team for making everything perfect for our amazing day.

The Royal York Hotel

Laura is an absolute star Her advice and guidance on lots of aspects of styling the room for our wedding at The Royal York Hotel was invaluable, and the chair covers/sashes/table runners tied the decor in our room together perfectly. If your looking for anything venue styling wise, Ambience Venue Styling York is the way to go! Thanks again Laura!

Ellena Corkery - April 9, 2016

York Racecourse Conference Centre

Laura did a fantastic job for The UK Wedding Event in dressing over 100 chairs around the stage area at our big wedding fayre at York Racecourse in March. Over 1500 visitors came through the door, so with that kind of footfall it is important to make sure that our events not only attract the best exhibitors (of which Ambience Venue Styling are one) but also look the part too! I think it’s safe to say Ambience Venue Styling York certainly more than achieved that objective for us and why we have already rebooked Laura for our return visit to York Racecourse on October 23rd 2016.

Rob O’Neill – UK Wedding Event owner - March 20, 2016

The Parsonage Country House Hotel

 Thanks so much for everything you did for us, all the rooms looked brilliant!

Huge thank you to Ambience for dressing the room for my annual black tie dinner and I have had comments especially from the ladies saying how much they liked the centerpieces. Great job Laura.

David Brown - November 1, 2015

The Royal York Hotel

Excellent service from Laura (wedding 19.09.15). Laura responded in a timely manner (often quicker than expected) when contacted. She was fantastic in helping us rethink and plan when the ceremony room changed 2 weeks before the wedding. She was able to get the items we needed. The room looked magical. Thank you! I would not hesitate in recommending Laura for your future event.

Esther Avis - October 25, 2015

Merchant Adventurers Hall

Well the big day has now gone and we can’t thank Laura from Ambience enough. We received so many compliments about the table decorations and how beautiful and how unusual they looked I would certainly recommend Laura from Ambience. For me though that Laura supported and stepped at the last minute when we were let down by the lady we had originally booked.

Donna Crockford - October 19, 2015

The Parsonage Country House Hotel

Just wanted to send a quick email saying thanks for everything on Saturday – the rooms looked great and everyone said how lovely the place looked. We’ll be sure to recommend you to everyone we know that’s daft enough to organise a wedding!

York Marriott Hotel

I would like to thank you for the décor at the Marriott on Friday. We managed to get into the garden and the Gazebo looked great. The wedding breakfast tables etc. looked fantastic and everybody commented how special the room looked. Karen and David were amazed and it really did make a big difference. We stayed at the hotel last night but missed you this morning so I hope you managed to collect all you bits and pieces. Once again thank you and I will always recommend you should the occasion arise.

Geoff - May 22, 2014

Hazlewood Castle

Just a short note to thank you for your assistance with the wonderful styling of the chairs & table covers etc on their wedding day at Hazlewood last Saturday. We had more compliments on the chair sashes, the twinkle cover and the cake table cover so it’s only right we pass on those remarks. Thanks again for the last two years of planning, your ability to understand what we required, and your free chocolates at the wedding fairs (which Terry will miss).

Terry & Jan - April 22, 2014
