My Interview with Busselton Hub About Wedding Businesses in the Down Season


Pia: Hi everyone I’m Pia, and this Vicki. Vicki: Hello Pia: Vicki is from Wez Enterprises Pia: which is is an amazing local business where you can
hire gorgeous things. Funky things, Pia: vintage things, rustic things, shiny
things, bright things, colorful things . . . Pia: . . . . for weddings and anniversaries,
engagement parties, twenty-firsts. Pia: Anytime you want to have a REALLY cool party, she’s the lady you give a ring to. Pia: She’s Awesome! Pia: She’s VERY creative, she gives me a run for my money. Vicki: Oh rubbish! Pia: No, it’s true. Vicki: It is not. Pia: It is! Pia: She’s very inventive. Pia: But the reason why we’re chatting today is because, Pia: Vicki has been in business for 17 years which is a bloody long time to own a business, Pia: in a small town. Pia: In a town that’s now a big town. Vicki: Hmmmm Pia: It is isn’t it? Vicki: Yes it is. Pia: You’ve seen some serious changes. Vicki: It’s been hard work. Yeah, lots. Vicki: It’s massive now (the town) Pia: Yeah, it’s big. And Pia: the thing about running and business in the wedding industry, is, that there is actually ‘Down Time’. Pia: Which is weird when
you think of a small business, because Pia: downtime actually means you work HARD
and no really sees anything. Vicki: That’s it. Pia: Nobody sees a thing. Vicki” No. Pia: So what are so one of the kind
of things you actually have to do in “Down Time”? Vicki: So, we go through ALL of the stock. Everything! Vicki: You just make sure it’s up to par. Vicki: We sort through EVERYTHING. Vicki: That’s because when you’re in a hurry and you’re unpacking the van it’ll go into A room . . and you know where it is the random area
yes I calculated as a bling room that’s where it goes but it’s not in its place
so in the downtime you’ve gotta go through everything I’ve just been
pulling apart chandeliers and cleaning them and replacing all the little rings
on them and things like wow that’s a huge job to replace every one of those
rings between each thing of linen and wash it all and put it all back together
make it all shiny I am I am looking across from us within Ian Huglin vickysd
showroom and across from us is sitting and it’s sample of her chandeliers and
they are spectacularly shiny and bright and as
Vicki saying done looking at and counting the rings on all of them and
that is a lot of fiddly words not something I’d want to do that and it’s
not just giving stuff like this fining this line and Chloe’s yeah and just
coming up with new stuff for the next season and just experimenting having fun
as well but there’s a lot of hard work because that we have changed a lot they
have I have a lot you still with Stewart a market for the princessy style
weddings there’s always going to be that sort of a bride but a lot of them are
going more rustic and been teaching nice cruel there is you can say yeah well but
yeah well they’ve got life but no fruit yeah yeah I get it – less than a blini
get on those that’s right yes I love my blini weddings yep I’m a
bit of lean for it – but not in a not in a really opt way like Artie’s no no no
this is billing is definitely more or God Grace Kelly than it is Versace
that’s a good put that to good comparison more Grace Kelly than it is
for the surgery yeah yeah very elegant very mm and we can do all sorts you know
she really can I’m going to take you around in about 15 minutes and do a
little tour of some of the key room but we just don’t really know what’s going
on oh yes and I feel bad with Vicki I’ve actually been with Vicki today we’ve
been planning some of her social media for the oncoming six months and in that
time we’ve been finding printing and packaging counting like really seriously
boring stuff but it’s been good to see the Pargo morning’s news business but
those things was done we are actually going I’m going to show you a little to
of some of the keys ruins so you get an idea of you know any shop front and then
includes Vicki’s sauce showroom here any shop front is going to have a back room
and that does include you know the carport at home or Bashar at home where
they still even extra salsa you know seasonal
displays like you’ve got to wonder where all the little shops keep their
Christmas displays like their Christmas trees or their hanging stuff you know
that doesn’t just fit in a neat little box in their back storeroom that goes in
a couple of big boxes in their shed at home and so it’s really interesting to
see and Vicki’s really awesome that she’s going to let us see in the
background of how to run a business and just keep like it is rigid it’s hard
it’s hard so thank you for letting me have a sticky bit today I really
appreciate it it’s really cool because it’s nerve-wracking to let people see
the real you so thank you very much do that just one last question I’ve got for
you when you look at you know how made how much things have changed and how
much work you’ve actually already put into running a business I know that you
are still passionate about this and what I see when I work with you is actually
your passion for healthy individual couples so it’s not just for the whole
you know wedding industry and the other lovely people that I know you get to
work with because I’ve seen you work with other like florists and that kind
of thing and function managers so I’ve seen Vicky work on-site in a really rush
setting and they just everyone clicks and works as a team it’s quite
incredible but I want to know from someone we’ve done it for nearly two
decades how do you look forward in this time when you’re just going to the hard
Yakka and the boring stuff how you look ahead and go do you know what I’m really
excited to try that or I wonder if I’ll get to use that or any sort of read
yourself up in this down times hard slog well I know I don’t need to because it’s
it’s my time to play you know so I can do whatever I want and create what
everyone takes owners and maybe somebody who like it oh and for the next video
the next season so I might go with God you know no I that she doesn’t do
that very much she did be a heat more than a nice girl but then I’ve got the
wedding’s coming up you know some of the wedding’s are coming up I’m just so
excited to do because they’re a bit different you know I’ll just have to do
something that’d be different how cool and I just rather help Brides make their
doing really special me yes and the small business owner you are really good
at that you are very passionate about helping I’m very passionate about the
couple’s of to make sure that lady get what they want is it’s within my power

local business owner it’s pretty cool someone who loves to help you it’s just
it’s so wonderful but thank you for spending five minutes with me but even
more so thank you for letting me show them we the nitty-gritty of the back end
