“I’m a bit of an old romantic – A star is born, The photograph, The notebook, P.S I love you, Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” Beverley Pile of PS With Love on her top five films to watch in lockdown

Prepare to dive deep into the treasure box that is PS With Love’s endless array of clay and porcelain hair pieces, pins and blooming bridal accessories. A world where trailing clusters of flowers wind their way around thick, French braids and flyaway curls, and brides’ glitter and take to the aisle in pearl-adorned crowns. Utilising only the highest quality materials, Beverley Pile of PS With Love has an innate sense of style and composition that every bride can’t fail to fall head-over-YSLs with. Working with her bridal clients, Beverley purposefully infuses her work with their individual style for something truly unique and individual to them. I caught up with Beverley to talk all things lockdown 3.0…

#1 We’ve just gone into Lockdown 3. In three words, describe how you are currently  feeling…  

No.1 “Hopeful.”

No.2 “Positive.”

No.3 “Creative.”

“I think with the role out of the vaccine we can start to feel that hopefully soon we will be able to get back to some sort of ‘normal’ whatever that may be.”

#2 Talk to us about your usual daily routine for your business and how this will change in lockdown…  

“I get up at around 6.30am, grab a coffee and go for an early morning run followed by online PT which sets me up for the day. I am currently working from home rather than the studio which I find really hard so I need my run to get me focused for the day.”

#3 How will/does lockdown impact your business, and how can people (brides/the wedding industry) support you throughout?  

“It’s definitely been an emotional rollercoaster! I had to close my studio when we first went into lockdown, I moved all of my consultations online, which has worked really well. I feel really lucky as all of my lovely brides still went ahead with their accessory orders, even though most of them have had to postpone their weddings. I really can’t thank them enough for being so supportive of my business.”

#4 Name three small businesses on Instagram you are supporting or would like to  support more…  

No.1@stormemakeupartist – who is not only an absolutely incredible HMUA but has also been so supportive throughout these uncertain times.”

No.2 @felisitigreis – who creates the most luxurious handcrafted dream wedding dresses.”

No.3@rebbecaannedesigns – she really is the embroidered veil queen!”

#5 Favourite lockdown snack? Has this evolved from lockdown 1?

“Mmmmm it has to be a peanut carb killer grenade bar!! I literally can’t wait to have one with my coffee!”

#10 What’s your lockdown outfit most days? Have you, say, developed an unhealthy  attachment to the elasticated waists of your leggings like myself?
