Hi there! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read through my new blog series - Wedding Top Tips. I'm all for adding value to the website for my clients, subscribers & visitors, so I thought it would be useful for all the bride and groom to be's to get some tips and tricks from ace wedding suppliers and vendors. Over the next few months I will be interviewing cake makers, hair and make-up stylists, venues, wedding stationary suppliers and so on.
To kick this new feature off we start with the Holly and Susie from Revelry Events, an award winning wedding planner duo, based in London and planning weddings and other events all over the world.
I hope you enjoy this new blog series and would love to hear your thoughts! Feel free to get in touch, if you want to ask specific questions to the suppliers or are a vendor yourself and want to be featured.
Take care. x
Tell us a bit more about your company and how it came about?
We’re Revelry Events and we’re all about rulebook-free weddings. We love weddings that don’t fit the normal conventions, that capture your personalities and most of all, ones where everyone has a damn good time! We're Holly and Susie, the duo behind Revelry, and we both had very different paths to where we are now. S: I’ve used to work in PR and events but I changed careers to wedding planning after realising that I’d get much more satisfaction organising weddings for people than events for brands. A few years ago I knew I wanted to make the jump, so I emailed a few planners for experience and the one who got back to me was Holly. We met, we clicked, I shadowed her, then we decided to work together permanently! H: It sounds super cheesy but it’s honestly been what I’ve wanted to do since I was really young – though I had a brief longing to be an volcanologist. I learned everything I could through my teens about what it meant to be a planner. I shadowed other planners, I read every book going on weddings, I tore out pictures from magazines. So when I finished studying film and television production at university I just started planning weddings for free, for friends of friends, until I built up enough business and enough confidence to really go for it. Cut to a five years later, I get an email from Susie in my inbox and I'm intrigued! We joined forces and it's been epic every since.
