So since my last post a lot has happened! I made the decision that I was definitely going to start my own business (yey) and I have gone with wedding planning as after a few weeks of thinking about it I was still keen to follow that venture.
So I can introduce my new business.....Ardor Weddings!
Ardor meaning: great enthusiasm and passion.
I have created my social media pages (Facebook and Instragram) and I have bought my domain www.ardorweddings.co.uk but I am yet to build my website (lacking skills in the web development and design area.)
I have started creating visuals (as above) and I will continue to do this where I will include the pink roses bouquet as a consistent visual throughout my work. I will use visuals like this on my social media sites and website too but also I would like to use them throughout any paper stationary that I hand out to clients.
As part of my business research I created a survey which I posted on social media and asked people to complete if they are recently engaged or married. The response on this was great and up to now I have 24 responses so it is a great insight into the wedding planning business and what clients expect.
One of my questions was 'explain why you did not choose to use a wedding planner' and one of the responses was 'There’s just no one in my area that I knew about. Wish I had one as finding it very stressful to even look at things' I was quite surprised to see this response and the participant had entered their email so I took it upon myself to get in touch with them and start up a conversation regarding her wedding planning experience. Myself and this participant have now entered into a email conversation where we have agreed I will help her out through her wedding journey as this will be great experience as my first new business venture.
So there we are, pretty much brings me to today where I decided it was time for a new desk so I have a base to work from.....
