We are way more than just a listing or a badge! We are here for you and for our mutual couple clients. There are lots of ways that we can work together and we have included some of those ways below. We will also include exclusive opportunities for you that we work hard to make accessible for businesses of all shapes and sizes. Keep checking back because we have lots of amazing ideas on how we can make our industry better, together.
Please also reach out to your fellow tribe members. It's a wonderful community where prosperous professional relationships are being formed, as well as friendships. Gone are the days where you only have the cat or dog to talk to!
You can join our supplier only Facebook Group by clicking here which is a place to ask any question you like without the fear of being judged or having to worry about “getting it wrong”. We all get it wrong sometimes and that’s okay, let’s help each other to get it right and be kind in the process.
Below, we explain in brief, more about:
how to become a Featured Supplier for your category;

In order to track your referrals, please make sure that your friends and colleagues quote your name when they apply to join us.
Complimentary Pin Programme
We have had a number of requests from couples for our pin badge with LOVE IS LOVE written on it in place of our business name. These are currently in production and will go up on our merchandise page very soon.
You’re more than welcome to buy them individually at the usual price of £6 + P&P but if you’d like to gift these to your couples when they book you through our website, and have something on your listing profile that sets you apart from those around you, why not join our Complimentary Pin Programme (which we will advertise and promote to couples in due course).
How does it work?
You order a minimum of 16 pin badges from us at a reduced rate of £3.50 each;
We move your listing profile to the top of the page in your category under a separate heading to show that you’re part of the programme;
We add, “two complimentary pin badges for every booking over the value of £x” [you set the minimum value] to your listing profile on our website; and
You send your couple two complimentary pin badges when they have booked and paid for your products/services.
This is a great way to incentivise couples to book with you or a wonderful thank you from you to them. It adds an extra element to your listing and ensures you’re one of the first in your category to be seen (especially since we are rapidly growing and moving to multiple pages per category). It also gives us something pretty awesome to advertise which will result in more traffic to our site and more bookings for you!
16 pin badges at the reduced programme rate will cost you £56 and will provide 8 couples with an incentive or thank you which costs you £7 per couple.
Join the programme now!
P&P will be added to every order; and
A donation will not be made on these purchases because we will not make a profit on the sales, this is designed only to further our brand and help you incentivise new couples.
Perks & Discounts E-Book
Our September 2018 - March 2019 Perks & Discounts E-Book listing service is now closed. We are delighted to announce that we have around 55 offers that will be included in our E-Book.

#youdontneedtoaskhere - The Wedding Show
We are currently collecting interest from suppliers and couples for the ultimate in inclusive wedding shows. We plan to launch our shows in 2019 and will provide further details in due course. Register your interest here.
Our working lives monopolise the majority of our minds and take the bulk of our energy. This takes its toll on our physical and mental wellbeing and we need to be reminded regularly to take a break. To help us take our own advice and to encourage others to do so too, we kicked off our 12pm mental health breaks.
All you have to do to take part is, 1. start taking a break at midday everyday (or at any time but at least one break per day!), 2. choose to do something for you, and 3. post a photo of what you're up to on your Instagram story, tag us and #middaymentalhealth. We will then share your posts in our Midday highlight on Instagram.
Joining in will not only make you accountable for taking care of yourself but it will encourage others to do so too. Happy professionals; happy couples!
Oxford Glitterball 2019
We are proud sponsors of Oxford Glitterball 2019, an LGBTQ+ not-for-profit ball of around 800 guests protesting the heteronormativity that pervades the Oxford Ball scene. The event is being promoted to Oxford, Cambridge, & London universities and is set to be quite the show!
We have negotiated special sponsorship packages for those on our lists with options from £40 to £3,000+.
If you’d like to know more, drop us an email by clicking here.
We are currently working on great content for our future blog that we hope to launch by the end of the year. We'd like our blog posts to include the following topics and we are on the hunt for guest bloggers:
suggestions and tips for suppliers on how to be more inclusive;
comments, experiences (good and bad), and suggestions from couples who've been through the planning process;
comments, experiences (good and bad), and suggestions from suppliers who've had experience of inclusivity issues or success stories;
real weddings and specifically LGBTQ+ weddings, multi-faith weddings, multi-cultural weddings, weddings planned around the challenges of disability or mental health issues, and weddings that celebrate true individuality;
styled shoots that counteract the unrealistic perception of a "perfect wedding"; and
supplier spotlights featuring specific products that might appeal to LGBTQ+ couples i.e. those that cater for a range of pronouns i.e.Mx & Mx and so on.
