Wedding Spaces Going Places LIVE event

Wedding Spaces Going Places

Part of my role as the head of the UKAWP and Wedding Industry speaker is being asked to present at wedding conferences and seminars. On the 1st May I was honoured to be part of a phenomenal line up of speakers at “Wedding Spaces Going Places” held at Syon Park. The event was organised by dear friend, ex business partner and venue specialist Kelly Chandler Consulting.  The event was designed to educate and inspire wedding venues and boy did it deliver. The calibre of venues attending was very high and I was delighted to have the chance to connect with many on the day. I gave a presentation on the power of working with wedding planners.

Benefits of working with wedding planners

How to source reputable wedding planners

After lots of questions from the venue owners I was delighted to announce the new venue membership at the UKAWP, which I launched at this event. Some amazing venues have joined and will be seen on our website any day now. Venue Membership is open to wedding venues who have been in business for a minimum of 12 months and who abide by our Code of Business Practice. If you’re looking to make connections with like-minded industry peers and planner members, and you’re keen to foster a spirit of community and productive partnership then we’d love to hear from you.

Just before lunch I took part in a panel alongside some friends and fellow wedding peers. We answered questions on pricing, blogging and social media. From left to right: Nicola – Propose PR, me, Louise Beukes Creative, Nova Reid

We then headed to the Syon Park marquee for a gorgeous lunch, I sadly then had to depart and head back to Essex so did miss the afternoon talks.
