LOVE THAT WEDDING! A LITTLE ABOUT US
When you combine your love for weddings with your love for organising the best events... that's when the magic happens!
This is me ... I'm Catherine! If we're getting 'formal', I'm the
"founder" of Love That Wedding!, but I much prefer to think I'm just one
part of an amazing team (by team I mean my awesome family and friends,
who can often be found helping me at our busy shows).
Love That Wedding! is, in a nutshell, a beautiful platform where the
finest wedding suppliers from across Wiltshire, Hampshire and Dorset can showcase their fantastic businesses,
products and services and where Brides & Grooms planning their big
day across the region and looking to source those wedding suppliers, can find them ...
It will come as no surpise to read that a) I love weddings and b) I love events. I mean I seriously LOVE events!
Whether it's going to events (any kind of event featuring food and
drink is always a winner for me) or organising events - when I'm working
on or having fun at events, that's when I'm happiest, and when work and
fun combine (as they often do) ... well life doesn't get much better
So where did this 'love' for events come from?
my childhood and teenage years, I remember my Mum was always organising
some kind of special event - whether it was a family celebration or a
fundraising event... you name it, Mum was organising it and I used to
love to help out ... funny, now it's Mum (and Dad) helping me with MY
Skip forward a few years and it was whilst studying
German & French at Exeter Uni, that I found myself thinking up and
organising all sorts of social events for everyone on my course - I
loved the buzz of bringing everyone together and we all had SO much fun -
it made us all so much closer.
After graduating in 2004 and not sure
what I wanted to do with my languages degree (!), after a short spell
working in recruitment, redundancy led me to running Salisbury &
District Chamber of Commerce & Industry, where among other things I
organised the big South Wilts Business Expo and Chamber of Commerce
Awards Dinners (incidentally at the very venue where I now organise our
big Salisbury wedding show) as well as Chamber Charity Golf events and
many a business networking event. Wanting to pursue something a little
less 'business suits' and a lot more 'fun', I eventually left the
Chamber to set-up my own events company and I guess this is where I say
"the rest is history".
Whilst we've been trading as Love That Wedding! for 2 years, we have in fact been in business since 2008. In 2009 we organised our very first wedding show at Salisbury City Hall and having grown our business since and wanted to expand under a new name, we rebranded and having launched Love That Wedding! in 2015, we've never looked back.
Having scooped the South Wilts 'Entrepreneur of
and South Wilts 'Business Personality of the Year' Awards along the way,
and recently worked with global drinks giant Bombay Sapphire and
organised a brilliant new wedding show at the Bombay Sapphire Distillery
in Laverstoke, I'm hugely excited for the future of Love That Wedding!,
which will see us expanding and organising more events and shows.
Our passion for perfectly organising only the best events is there for all to see and there's nothing we love more than 'marrying up' our soon-to-be-weds, with the finest wedding suppliers from across Wiltshire, Hampshire and Dorset. Helping Brides and Grooms tick everything off their wedding to-do lists so they can plan their own very special Love That Wedding!, and helping businesses to grow, is what drives us and our own business, every single day.
Whether you're a Wedding Supplier or a Bride/Groom - we can't wait to meet you soon.
