For startup businesses, in particular, there are many parts of the process where costly mistakes can be made or avoided. Whether you are planning on buying a wedding venue, investing in property conversion, hiring or buying equipment, writing a business plan, appointing and training staff, producing a website and designing a wedding brochure, I can advise on all aspects to ensure a successful wedding business.
For Wedding Vendors, The Wedding Owl can offer a professional consultancy service to help you with:
- understanding what is unique about your business compared to your competitors
- understanding your number one priority for the financial year and drawing up plans to achieve this
- increasing sales after your business has perhaps plateaued
- pricing of your products or services to try to achieve greater margins
- identifying any underlying business issues and identifying actions to improve or eradicate them
- writing a marketing plan or updating your current one to support your business plans
- writing of your press releases to ensure your updates and improvements are being shared through the appropriate media

The Wedding Owl can also offer you interim temporary cover for absence from the business, such as for illness or maternity leave. I can man your wedding fair stand (for when you can’t be in two places at the same time), and can become your go to person for tips and advice.
Because I fully understand that, no one business is the same, and that the wedding industry is becoming increasingly competitive, I believe that I can bring a unique, knowledgeable and experienced perspective, to help you to become more successful.
Just email or ring The Wedding Owl, in confidence, to arrange to meet for a free consultation, to discuss your wedding business and how I can help you.
