FOUNDER & DESIGNER
Hello, I'm Freya founder and designer at Deabill & Quince, lover of leopard print, fizz & dinner parties! I've been working from my home studio on beautiful weddings with amazing clients for over 7 years, and can't think of anything better.
I married Steve a superb Cabinet Maker (www.trufitt.co.uk) in 2016 and we have (read 'still are') renovating our home, overlooking the beautiful Oxfordshire Ridgeway. Since then we've welcomed two little bundles of madness to the clan Rowan & Hafren.
I am always on the lookout for new ways to keep my beautiful wedding stationery ranges fresh and quirky, standing out from the crowd is my ongoing aspiration.
I can't wait to hear from you and find out about your own wedding plans!
BEHIND THE QUINCE TREE
Having worked for a decade in top London creative agencies the recession hit hard and I decided to bite the bullet and become self employed. TheBr&newstudio LTD was born in 2012 with sister company Deabill & Quince, formally Br&newweddings and I haven't looked back since.
Moving to the countryside from greater London in 2015, life took a more relaxed vibe and creativity flowed. We are currently building our new garden studio tucked away behind the Quince tree and from the view overlooking our gorgeous garden, I spend my days creating pretty things & chasing butterflys (read toddlers)..
Over the years I have had the huge pleasure and honour to work with some fantastic mentors and clients and we pride ourselves on the lasting relationships these collaborations create.
Being surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK we certainly make the most of it and before the arrival of our 2 gorgeous mini's we could often be found donning the lycra and heading out on our MTB's for an adventure or heading off in our walking boots in search of a local pub. Now we are often walking MUCH slower to some sort of park.. but do still get a pub lunch in every now and then.
Being based in London for well over a decade the novelty of now having a large garden has yet to wear off and if we're not tearing up the hills we are learning the art of weeding whilst BBQ'ing as much as possible.
Country life certainly suits us but we do miss the amazing food on offer in London Town! So we're not often far away from global cuisines either back in London or in our new kitchen!
