The Wedding Business Magazine is Here

written by


Magazine Trend EditionDrum roll please…I cannot tell you how excited I am to announce that the first edition of the Wedding Business Magazine has now been published and is available for free download. This magazine has been a long time in the making and is something we have been very passionate about at the International Academy of Wedding and Event Planning. Between myself and the team here at Academy HQ we have wracked up many years in the wedding industry and for us this magazine is about giving something back.

Between us we have made plenty of mistakes, had many successes and faced many challenges, all of which have been great stepping stones for us in growing our respective businesses. We want to share our combined knowledge with other wedding industry professionals to help them develop and grow their businesses too and we hope to do this through our bi-monthly digital magazine.

We aren’t going it alone by any means as we have some stellar experts on board as part of our Contributor team, including Meghan Ely of OFD Consulting, Heidi Thompson of Evolve Your Wedding Business and Kathy Dalpra of Bride Appeal, and are happy to look at adding more as the magazine grows. If you’re interested there is more information here…

We are lucky enough to have some up close and personal interviews with Sara Burnett of Burnett’s Boards and Gavin Rajah, acclaimed South African fashion designer and successful business man. Both interviews are packed with advice and tips allowing you an insight into the highs and lows of their business story and how they have found great success.

If you haven’t already subscribed then you can do so here and the best news is that it is a free publication and always will be. We hope you enjoy and we’d love to hear your feedback.
