Venues Ive Helped:
I have been contacted by a large luxury corporate conference wedding venue in the South East of England after investing in their property, were surprised they were not converting enquiries into sales.
I have supported an independent start up wedding venue located in the South West of England, from those initial thoughts about changing their home, gardens and fields to offer weddings too, including what they needed to do structural, renovations and planning wise, developed their brand, wrote their contracts and policies and procedures, and took on their event management as they outsourced their wedding planning to us as experts running several wedding days that received 5 star reviews.
We provided advice to a coastal holiday let business with outdoor space who wanted advice if their business was suitable to offer as a wedding venue.
Currently working with a stately manor wanting to set up as a wedding venue in the South West of England, and an established historic licensed wedding venue wanting sustainability and growth, now Im working in partnership managing their weddings under their umbrella
We have ourselves owned property and venues and have turned them around increasing profitability in Essex, Sussex and Somerset.
