I want to introduce you to Emily Fisher. First of all because I’m so excited to announce that she is a new advertiser on Way Out Wedding!! Emily runs a brilliantly fun photobooth company called Fishee Designs, which you absolutely must hire for your wedding. Just look at the unabashed silliness and laughter going on in the pictures below!! Perfect for your big day party.
And secondly because she’s the perfect example of how being an entrepreneur can be the most fun you ever had and is as far from boring as can be. You don’t need to be corporate to be a success.
Emily not only runs Fishee Designs, but she’s a blogger on her fashion and lifestyle blog Mermaid Gossip, and she’s a freelance graphic designer who’ll knock you up a mean logo, branding, WordPress site, you name it.
Doing all the things she loves for a living, building up a strong, unique and recognisable brand as she goes, Emily is a bit of an inspiration to me, and I was interested to find out more about how she does it!
WOW: So, how did you get into running a photobooth?
Emily: I first set up the photobooth four years ago with a view to attend festivals with it. I used to be an event manager for a cash and carry, and I attended lots of festivals and saw a gap in the market. I’d always wanted to be self-employed and this was the idea (out of many) that felt like it could be the one to make it happen. It wasn’t until I started advertising for weddings that things took off big!
Emily: Mermaid Gossip is my fashion and lifestyle blog that I set up in August 2014. I was blogging under my Fishee Designs hat for a long time until I decided my blog content and my business were confusing people and the blog needed its own space. I love fashion and alternative style, and I love to be creative. The two brands give me a different outlet, whilst fitting nicely together as sister companies.
Emily: It’s fun and colourful, and very pink!
Emily: Just go for it. Stop waiting around for things to be perfect and just dive in and figure things out as you go.
Emily: A festival type wedding with Mumford and Sons playing, lots of hay bales and pops of colour thrown in throughout.
