ABOUT MR&MRSDIY

We’re Craig and Laura Phillips – and here’s a huge hello from us. We’re the Mr and Mrs with a love for all things DIY (of course!)

With years of DIY experience, we decided to share our dedication to drilling, hammering, painting, fixing and creating with the country. Because we’re passionate about helping people of all ages turn a house into a home. And so, Mr & Mrs DIY was born.

From building confidence in the basics to DIY hacks and helping your money go further, we’re here to teach you how to finally get DIY done – the right way.

Here at Mr and Mrs DIY HQ we are constantly working with our brand partners to create fresh new video content which will hopefully inspire and help you with any DIY task, big or small!

Take a look at our YouTube channel and you will find plenty of inspiration and helpful and practical advice to guide you through some of the most popular DIY tasks. We love hearing about your projects so please do post about them on social media and tag us in so we can share with our community.

Craig

One of the UK’s most recognisable and trusted faces in DIY and home improvements, Craig has thousands of DIY hours under his belt and can’t wait to share his experience with you. Even before winning the first series of Big Brother in 2000, he ran a successful building company, working on everything from kitchens to complete home renovations.

Laura

With an art teacher as a mother and a photographer as a father creativity is in Laura’s genes. From an early age Laura was taught DIY by her dad, and it’s been her love ever since. With a strong eye for interior design, heaps of enthusiasm, and never shy with a hammer, she still manages to teach Craig a thing or two in the workshop!

Sydney

We’d also like you to meet our brand mascot, Sydney the Bulldog. Sydney was originally bought as a wedding present from Craig to Laura. She’s since become a big part of Mr & Mrs DIY and is always helping out and getting involved at the workshop.

Benny

Benny is the commercial agent for Mr and Mrs DIY and is tasked with generating new opportunities for us to work with brands and media. He has been Craig’s agent for over a decade and oversees contract negotiations and maintains regular contact with all of Mr and Mrs DIY’s brand partners.

Jake

Our first full-time videographer and editor, Jake slotted into the team straight away and has not stopped since joining Mr and Mrs DIY in 2020. As well as filming content on a daily basis for all of our brand partners, Jake is an excellent video editor and works alongside Craig to ensure that we are delivering first class content for our clients.

Nick

Nick joined the team in 2021 and works closely alongside both Craig and Jake on all video production. Much like Jake, Nick can both film and edit content and has worked on numerous projects in the short time he has been working for Mr and Mrs DIY. He is a great asset to the team!

Jen

Jen is Craig’s PA and makes sure that there’s no slacking at Mr and Mrs DIY HQ. Jen is based in the office all week and works alongside Craig to ensure that Mr and Mrs DIY is a well-oiled machine. Having joined the team in 2020 Jen is integral to keeping Craig organised which is no mean feat!

Ste

Having joined the team in early 2022, Ste has already impressed everyone with his natural ability to create. Craig recognised that while shooting video content we could offer our brand partners still photography as an added service. Ste has taken on the role of shooting stills as well as being our in-house Creative Director and as you can see on our Still Photography Production section. Ste’s has been creating some incredible shots for our clients.

Jenna

Since joining the team in 2020 Jenna has helped oversee and grow our social media output. Working closely with our brand partners, Jenna ensures that we continue to share engaging and informative content across all of our channels. Jenna set up our DIY Fans page which has been a fantastic success enabling our community to share their projects and seek advice when looking to take on DIY tasks.
