Who I Work With

“It is a pleasure and a privilege to be in a position to be able help”

I enjoy working with an eclectic mix of clients; from individuals who want to invest in their own personal development, to small businesses owners and established luxury brands. Here’s what a few of them have to say:

“Not only do I adore Nova’s blog and everything it stands for, working with her is fantastic. I wish all my collaborators were as calm and organised. She’s passionate and driven to really make a difference, but more than that, she works damn hard too. When we did the Skin Deep shoot for Rock n Roll Bride Magazine, nothing was too much trouble. I went into our shoot relaxed and confident  that everything was organised – I just basically had to show up! As a busy magazine editor this is the DREAM!  I hope we’ll get the chance to work together many, many times in the future!”

“Nova is an accomplished public speaker. She has no need for cue cards, as when she speaks it comes from the heart and her experience.”

Emma Vince

“Nova Reid is both a powerhouse and a pioneer.  I have worked with her on shoots that have involved multiple luxury partners, outstanding creative briefs that are uncompromising in her passion for representing diversity. Nova’s professional relationships, keen eye and understanding of the industry and ability to offer brands a prestigious platform to showcase to her audience are just some of the reasons so many like to work with her.  Above all it’s her ability to bring creatives together with a brand and commercial focus and make it look easy that I admire the most.”

Karen Tippett

“Here at Amara we always love to work with Nova with her infectious positivity and smiling demeanour! We focus on offering our clients a bespoke service with the best possible customer service which aptly reflects Nova, which is another reason we enjoying working with her. Long may it continue!”


“I had a session with Nova and it really was life changing. The session enabled me to connect the dots that were subconsciously causing me to feel blocked about certain things.

I booked NLP coaching with Nova primarily because I was starting my own business and was experiencing some unexpected fear around being visible. Through the coaching I was able to see why I was feeling this way and that awareness has been magical in giving me what I needed to push through the blocks and really just get out of my own head and out of my own way.

The time I spent with Nova had a profound impact on me in the immediate aftermath but even nearly 6 months later it is still helping. For me, starting my own business was something different and so it required a different approach. I am so glad that it opened me up to the world of life coaching, I think it is something that everyone can benefit from on some level. As humans we develop a story in our heads and coaching helps to unpick that story in order to progress, resolve issues or simply feel better.

Nova has such a friendly, loving and personable manner. She makes you feel comfortable, so you don’t need to worry about opening up because she makes it easy to do so. I would recommend working with Nova 100 times over.”

“I was feeling completely overwhelmed with work and life and seemed to be working constantly but not feeling I was achieving anything, just spinning around in circles. I decided I needed things to change and to get order back into my life. I met with Nova and we worked through what values were important to me, how I was spending my time and looked at the balance (which also hightlighted the imbalance) of these. This was a great way to see indicators on why I was feeling the way I was.

Nova has a wonderful way of seeing through situations, and asking questions in a way that really makes you stop and think. I feel Nova really sees the person I am inside and has helped me focus. She is helping me bring order to different areas of my life. Nova is a very special person, gentle and encouraging, a great mentor and an inspiration to me.”

Having worked in wedding journalism for a long time, I can honestly say Nova is one of the kindest, most professional people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. Her engaging articles are always on point and written to the highest standard, and her knowledge of the bridal world has proven to be indispensible to me over the years. Yet it’s her passion and dedication to encourage a more diverse and inclusive wedding industry that really makes her stand out – Nova is a rare gem and a true expert in her field.

Danielle Wilkins

I chose to Nova to produce a press launch for my business after working with her previously on another project and I loved her professionalism and what her brand stands for.

Working with Nova is wonderful. She is professional consistent and full of integrity.

As a result of working with Nova it has raised my brands profile and my business has already started to gain the right attention from media and the industry.

It has been a wonderful experience working with Nova and I look forward to continuing to work together in the future.

We love working with Nova, her talk on our wedding training day gave a fresh new angle for our wedding team to think about.

On the feedback her talk was voted ‘most enjoyable of the day’! We look forward to working with her again soon”

Nova is one of the most inspiring speakers I’ve ever heard.

Inspirational, educational and REAL!

Nova has impacted on every area of the two business that I run. From inspiring me to examine my photography business to ensure I prioritise diversity, to educating 100s of photographers at the conference I run to elevate their knowledge around issues affecting people of colour who are navigating the wedding industry while planning their weddings, as well as wider societal issues around race, perception and bias.

I had the pleasure of working with her twice recently and at both events she was engaging, informative and she got people really fired up and excited to take what they’d learned back into their professional and personal lives.  It’s a real skill to be able to handle powerful issues like race and diversity in the compassionate and sensitive way that Nova does.  I would work with her again in a heartbeat.
