Working With Petite Weddings
What we do, how and why?
We’re helping couples to think differently about weddings and passionate about using our unique market position and specialist sales and marketing skills to help new and established great small wedding venues thrive.
This means our venue partners can concentrate on creating unique, truly personal, relaxed and fun wedding-day memories that last a lifetime and don’t have to cost the earth.
Where are we going?
We started Petite Weddings just over five years ago and now work with a growing number of handpicked wedding venues in the UK. We've successfully established the UK’s only wedding platform that is purely focussed on elopements and intimate weddings.
In the next 5-years we’ll be expanding the number of wedding venues we work with to 100 across the whole of the UK. We'll never have more than 150 UK venues on our platform.
We aim to grow our business steadily creating a collective voice for the very best small wedding venues in the UK, becoming the “go-to” platform for couples seeking extra special intimate weddings. In turn, helping our venue partners to flourish.
More than a wedding directory listing
In the last two years we have introduced more than 600 wedding bookings for our venue 15 partners through that period. We’re big enough to have a well-established presence in the small wedding market, yet we’ll always be small enough to offer our couples and business partners a personal service. As a venue you can expect us to take the time to understand your business and represent it in the best way on our directory, as well as work proactively with couples who regularly contact us for guidance and advice. Uniquely, this means you will receive leads direct from our site as well as personally qualified referrals from us.
If you'd like, we’ll also work with you outside of this platform to help you grow your business through access to our specialist marketing and business development services.
We only work with the best small wedding venues, or those who aspire to be the best, in the UK. If you’d like to join us in reimagining weddings we’d love to hear from you.
But is Petite Weddings any good?
Our website is the hub of our marketing activities. We have attracted over 60,000 unique users to our site in the past year and this number continues to grow steadily month-on-month. Our marketing works.
From a standing start with just one venue 4 and a half years ago, our marketing activities have resulted I'm over 4500 enquiries and we have arranged over 550 weddings in our first few years of trading. Our marketing produces bottom-line results.
We have high quality user interactions via our website. The average time on our website is 3.5 minutes, with users looking at 3.4 pages. A third of our users are repeat visitors. We forge positive and meaningful relationships with our audience through rich and relevant content and a free advice and guidance service for couples which provides qualified leads to our venue partners.
We manage all of our marketing activity ourselves and bring over 20 years of marketing experience to the business, most recently employed 5 years ago as Marketing Director of a top 10 private client investment firm in London. (Please don't hold that against me!)We bring expertise and experience that you might otherwise not have access to.
