Wedding Trendsetter Interview with Matthew Oliver

written by


matthew-oliver-blogI am thrilled to be bringing you this interview. I met Matthew in Barcelona a few weeks ago where we were both speakers at a conference and I have to say I have a bit of a crush. He is one of those people that just makes you smile with a vibrant personality that is simply infectious. I can see why his clients love him and he has so many great pearls of wisdom to share, that it would have been rude not to include him as part of our trendsetter interviews. Featured in numerous wedding magazines, blogs and media around the UK this is an interview not to be missed. He has just launched a brand new website that is stunning so be sure to have a look here

His signature bow tie is a staple part of his wardrobe and as he refer to himself he really is like the wikapedia of weddings. With a love of travel it is no surprise that Matthew specialises in destination weddings, so I will be chatting to him about the trends he is seeing in different regions and what ideas and inspiration he is seeing his clients bringing to him for weddings in 2017 and beyond.

In case you missed it on Friday we streamed the pre-launch of the International Wedding Trend Report 2017 across YouTube and Facebook with the industries first online TV program. You can watch the playback right here…
