Supplier Spotlight: Weddings in Surrey

Weddings in Surrey is a fantastic concept, it is a one stop shop for finding all your wedding suppliers in the Surrey area.


A Wedding in Surrey website is a fantastic concept for the bride & groom who want a one stop supplier website, how does the website work?

Couples planning weddings are increasingly turning to the Internet to gather ideas and plan their weddings. It really is an incredible source of easily accessible information. Weddings in Surrey gives access to engaged couples to all the planning tools they need to start preparing for their wedding, together with a directory of reliable and recommended suppliers.

Wedding service vendors and suppliers can also showcase their company on our site by taking a listing.

Our directory advertising rates cater for every budget, ranging from a basic free listing to an advertorial.

Tell us more about yourself and how you set the business up?

The idea came to me when I was planning my own wedding. My husband and I decided to get married on the Welsh border and we lived in Surrey. The whole wedding was organised through the Internet. Through searching I found a venue, florist, hair and make-up artist and entertainment. We only made two visits to the area before the big day!

My background is in I.T. and Marketing and by marrying’ the two together Weddings in Surrey was launched. The decision was to not create a nationwide directory but to concentrate on one county to create a niche for our visitors and advertisers. We have become incredibly successful after just one year, returning results on wedding searches on the first page of Google and attracting thousands of visitors every month.

What is the most satisfying thing about running a Wedding in Surrey website?

Being involved in the wedding business is an incredibly happy place to be. It gives me a lot of pleasure to write about weddings, and see the latest wedding trends and hear from happy couples who have had an amazing day. It’s fabulous to be able to use my creative skills in marketing the website and returning amazing results for our advertisers.

What are your top tips for couples getting married in 2010/2011?

Plan, plan, plan. Decide on your budget, add a 10% contingency and Stick To It! Do consider using a wedding planner to take the stress out of the day. They often negotiate discounts with suppliers, thereby passing on the savings to you. If budget is tight, consider what things you can do yourselves. You may have friends and family who have skills you can use. Decide on your ‘Dream Team’ of reliable people who will help you through the wedding planning process.
