As a result of our work with Kelly, our weddings business is now set for the future, more attractive to potential clients and we have already seen an increase of around 20% on our confirmed bookings.

This quiet oasis located in west London, includes a stunning 18th century villa, Chiswick House and adjacent pavilion, surrounded by fabulous landscaped Italianate gardens.

The management team sought my expert wedding industry advice following their attendance at one of my group training sessions in 2016, to help them with reviewing & improving their current wedding offer to drive more and better business.
In June 2016 …via my Refine and Shine programme
We delved into their entire wedding offering and process from the ground up, looking at changes and improvements to the facilities they were offering couples, how they were presenting them both online and face to face, the enquiry & showround process, pricing, industry connections and partners as well as their marketing strategy and activity.
In October 2016
Following my suggestions for fresh marketing activity, I was hired to head up the planning & guest list curation of an intimate industry event for key wedding & event planners, bloggers and wedding media to introduce this well connected audience of influencers (well known to me) to the venue and its capabilities. Several photo shoot collaborations, features and event enquiries have resulted.

In April 2017
Again following my recommendation to open the door more widely & raise awareness, the team confirmed me to head up the planning and production of their first ambitious wedding showcase for engaged couples. With a cherry-picked team of wedding professional partners, highly interactive show format and inspiration-led design, it generated a lot of buzz, 2 entirely new bookings and several more in the pipeline.

Before we started working with Kelly, our wedding business was successful but somewhat "stuck in a rut". We were achieving but not over achieving and needed to look to the future and how we could shape our wedding business for the changing marketplace.
 
While we worked with Kelly, she helped us to look beyond our current audience, look in detail at our marketing and to think outside the box. Through making revisions to our marquee, online presence and valuable introductions to industry contacts, media, bloggers and wedding planners we have seen an increase in enquiries and a much improved conversion rate.
 
In April 2017 Kelly helped us deliver our first wedding showcase. The aims of the showcase were to raise our profile as a wedding venue and drive our sales by creating an inspiring, interactive day for couples to attend. From the initial planning meeting, Kelly made the process seamless and guided our Events team every step of the way. On the day of the showcase we confirmed two wedding bookings and since then we have taken several new enquiries.  
 
As a result of our work with Kelly, our weddings business is now set for the future, more attractive to potential clients and we have already seen an increase of around 20% on our confirmed bookings.
 
Kelly is a pleasure to work with, she is down to earth, honest and has amazing ideas and proposals that don't cost the earth but make a significant difference to a venue.
