The story of
Angeline & Edryd

Noses to the grindstone

A&E met in freshers week at Leeds University; neither entirely captivated by their degrees in History and Georgraphy but very much by the university experience.

The rat race

Angeline worked in politics in London until 2002 when she moved to Bristol where Edryd was working for the whale and dolphin conservation society. It wasn’t long before romance blossomed.

Wedding bells!

A&E tied the knot 12 years after meeting. The wedding was Angeline’s first opportunity to design an event; it gave her the confidence to volunteer for a festival designer.

Festival fever

Discovering festivals for the first time A&E volunteered in decor crews at festivals and realised that this was a life they enjoyed. Electric Picnic provided A&E the first opportunity to be part of a festival family.

Back to the grindstone

Angeline returned to University at Bath Spa to study Idea Material Object a BA (hons) in 3d design. She met some amazing people who would form the backbone of the A&E crew. Three years after first volunteering at Electric Picnic, A&E become a partnership and manage the decor team at Electric Picnic.

Lovely lantern

Tasked with developing a lantern for Forbidden Fruit Festival in Ireland A&E develop the Fuchsia lantern. A beautiful fabric lantern with lace inserts that moves with the wind and casts dancing light shadows on the ground.

Our greatest adventure

A&E realise that event decor will become their greatest adventure. They take on areas at both Secret Garden Party and Wilderness Festival, alongside other UK festivals. Several flag ranges are developed and Angeline sister's wedding is decorated.

Globe trotting

A year of travel followed as A&E were commissioned to decorate a venue at Snowbombing in Austria. After the season they took some time out in Costa Rica while their flags decorated Wonderfruit in Thailand at Christmas.

Bringing home the flags

The Welsh Arts Council fund a regeneration project in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire called “The LAB", who ask A&E to work with primary schools to make flags for the town.

The silver screen

A&E manage the decor across the whole Wilderness festival. Our onsite 70 strong decor team work tirelessly to create a truly beautiful event. Universal Studio, enchanted by Wilderness, ask A&E to build it again for the new Bridget Jones film.
