From this experience and knowledge, Ben could clearly see the need in the market for a totally venue focussed
digital offering to help newly engaged men and women in the UK with wedding venue search and
selection. As a result, in December 2018, WOW Event Hire’s sister company, WeddingBooker.com
was born.

Researching the online market for venue search engines delivered interesting results. What a
confusing online market it is! Where should couples start their planning? So much choice! Do I
choose a photographer first? If I want a specific date do I really need to ring around every venue?
What on earth does ‘rustic romance’ or ‘city chic’ actually mean when describing your type of


Similarly, wedding coordinators, event planners and sales directors are starting to question the
results coming from the subscriptions that their wedding venue has signed up for. Ben recalls a 5
star venue wedding coordinator who said she would come in every Monday, to face at least 15
emails asking her to send out brochures – to prospects which would normally not turn into anything!
How much time can be wasted answering the question ‘When can I come to see you?’ and ‘Is that
date available in your diary?’

So, what makes Weddingbooker.com different?

- We are totally dedicated to wedding venue search and selection.
WeddingBooker.com launched as the largest choice of wedding venues in the UK totally dedicated
to wedding venue search and selection. We don’t do flowers, photography, cakes or fashion, we are
totally focused on partnering with wedding venues and focussing all of our digital marketing activity
on couples who will be proactively looking to set their date and book their venue.
Our easy to use search function allows couples to look at stunning pictures of our venues, rich with
content and start making that all important shortlist of potentials for their big day. If couples are
searching directly through google ‘wedding venues Cardiff’ for instance, couples will be directed to a
regional page of listed venues.

- We are available 24/7 and when wedding coordinator has gone home for the day the
couples are in ‘our office’
Couples want access to as much choice as possible and be able to do as much as possible online.
WeddingBooker.com knows our couples want to be able to browse venues in front of the TV on a
Saturday night, whilst watching X Factor with a glass of wine. We know that the majority of couples
getting engaged and looking for that special venue are millennials. We live in an age of convenience
technology. Why would they spend ten minutes on the phone to book a room at a hotel when
there’s an app for that?!

- We pride ourselves on delivering qualified leads with high intent to the venues inbox
Our online price request and appointment booking features streamlines the entire process. Those
couples sat at home on a Saturday night, can send multiple requests for prices and availability with

the click of a button. Once they have narrowed down their search they can book their wedding
showround without leaving their sofa or dialling a number! Fast forward to Monday morning and
when the wedding coordinator turns up for work, there are quality price requests and wedding
showround bookings in the inbox!

- We are trusted advisors to couples searching for venues

Having received multiple calls from brides and grooms seeking advice in finding their venue for the
big day we have used our experience and knowledge of the industry to launch an advisory service.
Our experts are well placed to help couples who are short on time or struggling to know where to
start, to shortlist venues and provide a report detailing availability and price options for a selection
of venues which meet the couples criteria.
