Cornwall Wedding Meetup March 18, 2015

Eden Project is yet again to host the Largest Wedding Industry Networking Event in the South West on Wednesday March 18

The Mediterranean Biome at Eden is set to host the next Cornwall Wedding Industry Meetup and dinner, which is headlined by keynote speaker Kim Herbing, director of ‘The Wedding Community’.

Wiltshire-based Kim Herbing will be presenting on ‘Styled Photoshoots’ at the event held on Wednesday March 18 2015 from 3pm-9.30pm.  The event marks the start of the wedding season in Cornwall and promotes the region to potential bride and grooms.


“I am absolutely delighted to have been asked to be a keynote speaker at the next Cornwall Wedding Meetup. I am very excited about meeting all the lovely suppliers that are attending and finding out more about them and their businesses during the speed networking,” said Kim.

“Styled wedding shoots are something I am very passionate about, and I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge and ideas to the amazing suppliers that are attending the event.”

Organised by wedding and event consultant Hazel Parsons and wedding and event planner Jenny Phipps, the Wedding Industry Meetup will offer the opportunity for Cornwall’s wedding managers, wedding planners, venue owners and wedding suppliers, to network and develop their businesses.


There will also be the opportunity for attendees to learn about business growth in a presentation by hospitality consultancy firm Delicate Trade as well as a session on ‘How to use Pinterest for wedding businesses’ presented by Lucy Thornton of Perfect Balance Marketing.

Tickets are £20 per person for the daytime networking event or £40 per person for the daytime networking and dinner. Tickets can be purchased on the event site www.cornwallwedmeetup.co.uk.  Parsons said the event would be an excellent opportunity “for all those involved in the wedding trade in Cornwall and indeed the South West.


“Being able to get advice from Kim Herbing, who runs a very successful, international wedding inspiration site is hugely beneficial and an opportunity that would not normally present itself, it is something that can’t be missed,” she enthused.

“Anyone looking to increase sales, branch out into the industry, or improve their wedding business should be attending as they will be able to network, promote business relationships, showcase products and tap into the valuable knowledge the presenters have to offer and have a little fun at the same time.”


Following the daytime event, there will be a beautifully styled networking dinner hosted in the Med Biome.

“This two-course meal and drinks reception will showcase some of the fabulous things that Cornwall has to offer weddings with a Mediterranean twist, from a great foodie menu to elegantly-styled wedding layups as well as an opportunity to meet and talk to Kim Herbing,” added Phipps.
