Event description

Description

The Wedding Sessions is an inspirational day-long workshop aimed at fledgling wedding entrepreneurs wondering where to start and established businesses in desperate need of motivation and support.

There will be heaps of practical advice, anecdotal tips and lots of little lightbulb moments. The agenda is flexible and guided by your needs, but we generally cover the following areas:


  • Finding your 'why'
  • Understanding millenial consumers {i.e. your key demographic}
  • Identifying your dream clients
  • Building a brand and telling its story online
  • Marketing in all its forms
  • Networking in the wedding industry
  • Social media and blogging
  • Goal setting and big-picture business planning


As you'll discover, we don’t claim to have everything figured out, but what we do know is that chatting things through with people in a similar situation is often when ideas start flowing, sparks start flying and you're hit with a delicious wave of adrenaline and motivation.

After the workshop, we give you The Wedding Sessions Bible, an incredible digital resource packed full of knowledge and tools we think you’ll find helpful. It frames questions for you to ask yourself about your business and contains a whole raft of worksheets and guides to get your lightbulbs flashing. We also have a private Facebook group for attendees.


The Wedding Sessions is an opportunity to spend a day nurturing your business using knowledge we’ve accumulated, and the pitfalls we’ve stumbled into, to make you better, smarter and brighter. We’re passionate about changing our little corner of the world and we’re keen to make sure you stand out from the crowd too.

FAQs


What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

We highly recommend using public transport where possible as parking can be tricky in the Clifton area.

The nearest train station is Clifton Down.

Whiteladies Road is on a number of main bus routes from the city centre, with buses stopping outside Clifton Down Shopping Centre. River Cottage Canteen is a 7 minute walk away.

If you do decide to drive, most nearby streets are permit parking only, so we would recommend parking in Clifton Down Shopping Centre.

What about food and drink?


The cost of your ticket includes a delicious lunch, plus tea and coffee throughout the day. Oh, and we always make sure there's cake! Please let us know in advance if you have any dietary requirements.


What should I bring to the workshop?

You might want a pen and paper to take notes and a few business cards to hand out.
