Wednesday 1st – Friday 3rd November 2017
JJ APEX, Perseverance Works, 25-27 Hackney Road, London E2 8DD
Day One, Wednesday 1st November
After caffeine (it’s a little too early for wine!) and networking, the day kicks off with a big look at business essentials. From the importance of creating a solid business foundation through to services and pricing, you’ll hit the ground running. Social media will obviously get a big mention and we’ll be throwing in some Facebook Live as well!
Hot guest speakers on day one include Sarah Shuttle from Verity Road, our Instagram guru Helen from Socially Beautiful and Karen Cinnamon, founder of the world’s biggest Jewish (and Jew-ish) wedding blog, Smashing the Glass.
We’ll be rounding off the day with a cake and cocktails masterclass courtesy of MonAnnie Cakes and Mix & Twist, before heading to another JJ Media Group studio for canapés, drinks and a networking dinner.
Day Two, Thursday 2nd November
Starting bright and early, Day 2 is all about the nitty gritty of wedding planning. There’s a step-by-step guide to planning a wedding including all you’ll need to know in order to source a wedding dream team. Honest advice about problems, pitfalls and tricky clients follows lunch and you’ll run through the whole process from enquiry through to booking in an interactive session.
Louise Perry will be with us to dish up some of her own business advice and lessons learnt and our workshop hosts, JJ Media Group, will be popping in to discuss working relationships. Emma Soulsby will lead a mini-workshop on emergency floristry and you’ll also hear from the one and only international luxury wedding planner Matthew Oliver about his business journey and success story.
After a jam-packed day, we’ll be heading out for a well-deserved cocktail and networking night out in London!
Day Three, Friday 3rd November
Day 3 is all about the pretty and your portfolio. We’ll be getting rid of the tables and chairs and getting stuck in with a full days’ practical styling workshop. Expertly led by planning and styling legends Andri from Always Andri Wedding Design and Sundari from The Wedding Stylist you’ll have the chance to learn more about styling basics, design proposals and interpreting briefs as well as having the opportunity to create some all-important set-ups, flat lays and details for your own portfolio.
