About Us

Find out why we love helping small businesses like yours

Our Story

After spending 18 years working with and supporting small businesses in the wedding industry, Hitched founder Dean Yardley and then Head of Design Simon Dawson decided that they'd heard enough horror stories from these businesses and they knew they could make a difference.

We created Silky Ocean Studios as we believe web design, digital marketing and SEO should be accessible and affordable for all businesses without compromising on quality or expertise.

Since 2017, we still hear the same stories from small businesses about being let down by web designers or of eye-watering and unreasonable prices from agencies.

Thats why we created an affordable solution that will give you access to our years of experience in the industry, leaving you to focus on what you love most.

That is why we offer high quality websites (not your average templated websites) starting from only £500, with monthly website hosting & maintenance packages to support you and your business when you need it.

Our Mission...

We started Silky Ocean Studios with one goal in mind: to be present and affordable, for small businesses, without compromising on quality or expertise.

We're a people business

It's important to us that you are able to ask questions and for advice. We use jargon free language so you understand what we're doing and why.

We aim to make the web a simpler place and use our expertise to remove the barriers many small businesses come up against.

The Team

We're a bunch of honest and passionate design, development and SEO experts who will take care of managing your website leaving you to do what you do best.
