No 4 Lover of all things gorgeous...
I specialise in the styling of bespoke events. Each commission is approached with an abundance of passion, style and creativity. Why be like everybody else when you can have something so diverse and so unique. It would be so much easier to follow a formula but I really can’t bring myself to work in that way, there are so many amazing possibilities to explore!

‘Fantastic, unique, contemporary stylist and event coordinator. Leesa leaves no detail forgotten.
PAUL SMITH HQ, NOTTINGHAM
BEHIND NO 4
My name is Leesa Riding. As an established pioneer of Interior Styling I felt it was time to inject something different into the wedding and event world. Couples and clients are increasingly looking for more from their event and this is where my expertise can make all the difference.
I have worked in renowned photographic studios across Manchester and London, and since 2005 have run a successful photographic studio/interior styling company in Leeds with my business partner Adele Flesher, www.cyanstudios.co.uk. I have designed and styled many photo shoots and commercials for photography and TV, showcasing my passion for interiors, fashion and beauty.
My love of weddings, parties and dressing up inspired me to transfer my creativity into event styling, bringing with it a fresh and diverse approach.
The name No 4 comes from the number of my childhood home in Manchester. This is where my passion for the art of entertaining began. For my 18th birthday party in the 1990's I turned No 4 into The Hacienda nightclub for the evening, along with the yellow and black chevron tape, flyer style invites, neon cocktails and club DJ’s!
I don’t provide packages as I believe that every commission is different and completely unique.
I tailor each project with careful precision, creativity and passion, working with you to create something personal and special. I limit the amount of commissions I take on so I can provide a one to one bespoke service.
Organising an event can be quite daunting, so it is my job to eliminate any stress so that all you have to do is relax and enjoy every moment.
I’d love to work with you.

BOTANICAL BANQUET WEDDING
Cool contemporary styling with designer classic furniture and neon lighting - a taste of Ibiza in a northern bar. This was for a friend’s engagement party who wanted to relive their clubbing youth. All props and furniture sourced and styled by No 4. The wedding planning is now in progress!
Simple but ever popular. No 4 will create a cool design based on your event style adding your favourite confectionery/savouries!

Funky retro cocktail bar chill out area for a very cool couple at their festival style wedding. The POD was created using red 'LIPSTICK' glass herringbone tiled walls and propped with an original 70's drinks trolley and nostalgic drinks!
Really personalise your event! This was for my wedding back in 2012. We asked guests what their favourite record was, then surprised them with their own special place setting complete with record player so they could listen to it and reminisce.

You may be a little confused as to what a ‘Stylist’ actually does and how I can help you. Hopefully this will assist you in making that decision, if you have any further questions please give me a call for a chat.
A stylist will:
• Devise the overall look of the event whilst focusing on the minutest detail
• Work tirelessly with you to realise your vision
• Be specifically responsible for creating the whole visual aspect of your event, including venue sourcing (if required), style, mood, theme and colour palette, based on your requirements and personal preferences.
• A stylist is spatially aware with a keen eye to dress a venue either interiorally or exteriorally by utilising the space perfectly for a striking composition.
• They will have their fingers on the pulse at all times bringing new and fresh ideas.
