The importance of being a recommended wedding supplier
So you’ve searched around and finally found the venue of your dreams! As a bride and groom, you’ll want to know that everyone who you choose to be a part of your wedding day is professional and will provide an exceptional service. But how do you do that? The majority, if not all, of the people you’ll be contacting and trusting to provide beautiful flowers, take photographs you’ll treasure forever, design your invitations, decorate the rooms and – of course – provide the music for your special day will be total strangers to you. Where on Earth do you start?
Well, the answer is easy if your venue has suppliers who they recommend. These professionals will have generally provided their services to the venue many times and will have shown themselves to be trustworthy and competent in their field.
Most recommended suppliers will also attend the wedding fairs and/or open days organised by the venue. This is great because it gives you an opportunity to meet them, see their work and ask any questions that you may have. You might also find it helpful to meet someone face-to-face to discover their personality.
As a wedding supplier, I’ve found it crucial to my business to be recommended by venues. A look at the weddings that I’ve got booked for next month, for example, shows that 7 out of the 10 are with venues at which I’m currently recommended. And as a leading Suffolk wedding pianist, it’s no surprise to see that 8 out of the 10 bookings are in Suffolk.
I have had the pleasure of playing at Hengrave Hall (pictured above) and Smeetham Hall Barn for years now and am extremely grateful to the staff at these venues for their continued faith and trust in my abilities. I’ve also played at many other Suffolk wedding venues as a pianist over the years, a list of which can be found here.
Very much looking forward to playing multiple times at both venues in May 2019!
