What About Weddings: Deep dive conversations on weddings & the wedding industry

What About Weddings

What About Weddings is a community membership for the UK and global wedding industry. We are committed to seeking better representation for our industry, on every level. Originally founded by Jessie Westwood, Tamryn Settle and Annabel Beeforth as a campaign movement during the pandemic, at the start of 2022 we announced that we are launching a brand new wedding community membership - an inclusive, high value, affordable and easy to access platform for anyone who wants to build on their successes, invest in their growth, access latest information, and ensure we always have a voice on an international scale. Our members will get access to live online events and workshops, comprehensive information and workflow tools, latest news with political engagement, discounts and benefits, an online forum and a chance to connect with others facing the same challenges and opportunities. Join us on our podcast, as we explore issues that impact our businesses, mental health and lives.
