Your venue is one of a kind, set in an incredibly breathtaking backdrop. Pictures don’t do it any justice. You know it’s a gem – you get told all the time.

People have asked you if you host weddings. Perhaps you already do for local couples, but there seems to be a lot of interest from an international clientele, and most definitely, opportunities for higher earnings.

Perhaps you already get enquiries from international couples and destination wedding planners, but for some reason you’re not converting the enquiries into bookings.

the potential is real

It’s time to…

  • tap into that potential, invest in the knowledge you and your team need to make your venue ready for the ever growing destination wedding market

  • play bigger and be better at attracting the type of couples that will travel the world for the perfect wedding venue

  • convert the enquiries into booked clients and maximise your revenue

  • do less local, low-budget weddings, and more destination ones with higher earning potential.

Be the one they choose. Book more, better quality destination weddings.

You might have not realised it, but... destination weddings currently hold at about 25% of the global wedding market.*

Have you got the perfect wedding venue for destination weddings?

As an international wedding planner first, and consultant second, I’ve had my fair share of encounters with wedding venues that would be perfect for my couples, if only…

  • they knew their venue is perfect for weddings
  • someone in their team spoke fluent English
  • they had a well-thought out sales process
  • their contracts and on-boarding process were more professional
  • their images were more modern
  • their facilities were in line with what discerning international couples want

  • they understood how to work with international wedding planners

  • they had a much clearer pricing structure so that destination couples wouldn’t have to waste time asking for clarifications

  • they were keen to get feedback on board and make changes to better serve international clients

Too many IF’s!

My dedicated consulting services will make you one of the wedding venues that stands out from the crowd.

The venue that people recommend over and over.

The one offering unparalleled service and support to those busy international couples who are almost giving up on the dream of a destination wedding because of they’re struggling to get responses.
