I wanted to take a moment out of your day to give you a little snippet into some of the exciting things happening behind the scenes in the UK wedding industry.
One of the things I love about the wedding industry is the diverse and eclectic mix of suppliers available to inspire you. The copious amounts of opportunities to collaborate and share ideas with each other.
One of the things I dislike, is that the wedding industry is not regulated (yet), which means anyone can trade and set up a business at varying standards, which unfortunately means the industry opens itself up to some, shall we say ‘dodgy’ businesses. (Which is why you can rely on us bloggers to help educate you on how to find the credible and quality wedding suppliers!)
The industry also attracts a lot of incredibly genuine and talented people, established professionals who entered the industry before the joys of social media, websites and wedding blogs, or those who have started a business, perhaps out of enjoying their own wedding, that just don’t know about some of the tricks of the trade.
The help make the industry become even more gorgeous, inspiring business women extraordinaire’s; Louise Beukes, stylist and founder of award-winning B.loved blog and Jessie Thomson, wedding planner, stylist and founder of Jessie Loves; have created Flourish and Prosper. A quality training and development resource for the wedding industry, which includes workshops, styling events and much more.
First up, The Wedding Academy on the 1st November 2014. A one day workshop in collaboration with a whole host of leading wedding industry rock stars, (including Rock n Roll Bride, Maids to Measure, Xander and Thea, Pocketful of Dreams to name a few), to share tips and knowledge to both experienced and new businesses, in a bid to educate and raise the standard in the wedding industry, which I am all for!
