Wedding Supplier Spotlight – Make It Stand Out
How did you get into this business?
We’ve always wanted to be able to run a business together, particularly something within the events industry, but it had always been something we had put off, that was until we got engaged in 2015 and started attending wedding fairs. We decided to take the plunge after seeing all the other suppliers in the wedding industry and have never looked back! We can’t believe we didn’t do it sooner!
What kind of wedding services do you provide?
We mainly provide the fun elements to your special day – photo booths, selfie mirrors, candy carts and we also provide some styling equipment such as giant LED lettering and LED backdrops.
3 words to describe your business?
Creating special memories!
What sets you out from your competition?
As we set up Make It Stand Out whilst we were getting married, we were going through the same process as our customers so we’ve always strived to treat customers the way we would like to be treated ourselves, in everything from pricing to service. We try to be as competitive as possible with our pricing by charging ‘what we would pay’ for our services and providing the best absolute service possible at all times. We always make sure we do everything we can to make sure your day is perfect for you.
Quick Fire Questions
Dogs or Cats? Dogs
Favourite Holiday Location? Thailand
Favourite Hobby? Wine 🙈
Jaffa Cake – Cake or Biscuit? Cake! Stale biscuits go soft, stale cakes go hard! So they’re definitely cakes!
Which actor/actress would play you in a movie? Tom: Whoopi Goldberg/Dan: Tyler Oakley
What’s the best thing about the service that you provide for your couples?
No wedding reception can be boring when we’re involved! A photo booth really excites guests and gets everyone in the party mood. Plus, all guests get to take home printouts of their pictures, so they have a souvenir of the day!
What’s the most common mistake couples make in terms of the service that you provide?
Having us there too early. No one wants to take funny pictures in a photo booth when they first arrive at a wedding. Get your guests full of wine before we start and you’ll get much funnier pictures!
How do you tend to resolve this?
We always try and recommend the best time – obviously, it’s up to our couples, but as we see so many different weddings, we’ve seen what works well and what doesn’t. We just want you to get the best out of our services!
Quick Fire Questions

Themes for the day, colours, and the party vibes!

What time we would recommend our services to be running
What’s the best way for couples to find you or see what you do?
To see what we do couples can come along to one of our wedding fairs. We can be found on most Sunday mornings in a wedding venue around the North West with our Magic Mirrors.
If you weren’t doing this with your life, what would you be doing?
Dan previously worked in HR and Tom worked in management, so probably that! We’ve always wanted to do something together though so we would’ve definitely been working on that!
