The Hampshire Wedding Club Is Delighted To Have Created A Day Long Immersive And Inspiring Workshop Especially For Creative Entrepreneurs And Wedding Industry Professionals.

Taking Place On Wednesday The 31st October 2018.

With The Brilliant Maddy Jones, From Making Your Business Shine, Taking Charge With Her Usual Glittering Personality And Witty, Enlightened Teaching Style.

Maddy is the UK wedding industry’s leading expert and educator on Pinterest.

Come and learn in the inspiring beauty of the Four Seasons Hotel in Hampshire, the perfect place to immerse yourself in this innovative, informative and practical workshop.

“I decided to book onto this workshop because despite being in business since 2009, I have zero marketing/ social media strategy and we use Pinterest a lot with our clients and for the business in general.  With very little idea how to make it actually worked for the business in terms of generating new leads, etc.

I loved the small group size, the hands-on activities making you really think about your business and target market and then understanding how to use this information with Pinterest to grow the business. This workshop helped me to really develop a plan.  On Monday we held a strategy session and we now have a very clear social media strategy which we are implementing. It really gave me the knowledge and drive to kick-start this which has been on my to-do list for sooooooo long!

Before I went, I felt completely lost in terms of Pinterest. Now having gone to the workshop I feel educated, inspired and motivated to take action. I even feel like I understand my clients a bit better now too!

I would recommend this workshop to everyone who uses Pinterest or wants to use Pinterest for their business. It is a great day of inspired learning. The key takeaway from this workshop for me was…refine pins, pin regularly, use good descriptions and start to use video!!!”

Ok then, here you go:


Millennials (your target generation) use Pinterest just as much as Instagram

Pinterest traffic visiting your online presence spends more than TWICE  that of Facebook traffic

70% of Pinterest users pin wedding-related content before they’re even engaged (yes that means playing the long game, but is that such a bad idea?)

85% of Pinterest users are women aged 25 – 36 (your ideal bride sweet spot)

At the workshop you will learn how to:

Get to grips with Pinterest for your business once and for all
Increase traffic to your website
Attract bookings through Pinterest
Get found and enthusiastically shared on Pinterest
Easefully build an adoring following on Pinterest
Present yourself beautifully and effectively on Pinterest
Create buzz with residual, evergreen impact via Pinterest
Drive ready-to-buy traffic to your website from Pinterest

“Since attending and implementing Maddy’s Pinterest workshop, I went from 0% interest in my Pinterest to 6000% increase in engagement. Amazing!”

What people thought of the last session:

“I just wanted to thank you both for an excellent course yesterday. My head is still buzzing with all the information you kindly gave to us.  This workshop helped me to be more confident with using Pinterest, to have a better understanding of the way it works and to explore the media in more detail.”

Sally, Aylin White Designs

“As wedding photographers, we had heard myths of other photographers and wedding suppliers getting bookings through Pinterest. Before we began, we were daunted by the idea of Pinterest. It seemed too complicated to use effectively. It seemed natural that we should make more of this powerful platform. We could see immediately that making proper use of Pinterest is not only simple but fun! Our aim was to connect with new clients and within a matter of weeks, our first enquiry came through which provided the motivation to continue on and pin more! Now I love pinning away and building our boards. I think I have a new addiction!”

About Tasha:

If I was to share a few simple truths with you, they’d be that I think everything happens for a reason, cake can be eaten at any time of the day and I’ve always dreamed of living by the sea.  However, I also believe that in life, you should always be courageous.  That’s why I started The Hampshire Wedding Club.  I’ve been a wedding photographer for years and I adore how passionate this phenomenal industry is and how inspiring the creative people around me are. Before I started my own photography company Ikonworks, I worked for international brands such as Verizon, Porsche, Game and Morgan Stanley for 16 years as an executive assistant.  The perfect grounding for starting up and running my own show – multitasking, organising and attention to detail are in my DNA.

But here’s the thing, above all I subscribe to the mantra that doing what you love makes you happy.  So seeing a gap in the wedding industry, I thought it was high time I started pulling together the fantastic creatives and professionals I’ve worked with.  I wanted to create an interactive, inspiring and beautiful online portfolio for brides and grooms that not only showcases all the fabulous wedding industry talent we have in Hampshire, but also acts as a revolutionary social space and digital lookbook for wedding creatives.  That’s how The Hampshire Wedding Club was born.

When I am not shooting weddings, hosting events or running The Hampshire Wedding Club, I’m Tasha who is married to Martin and mum to Sam and Abby – our two lovely, funny, feisty kids.  Most days you’ll find me surgically attached to my desk or curating love stories through a lens but I can often be found yelling at the the side of a rugby pitch or grabbing a quick coffee before going on a webinar.  I can’t survive without coffee.

About The Four Seasons:

The Four Seasons Hotel, is an alluring retreat, and we can not wait to welcome you.

The hotel is set in an exquisitely restored, 18th-century manor within 500 acres of picturesque Hampshire serene countryside, a short distance from London.  It is a perfect place for a country getaway for those seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life, a wedding celebration or a delightfully brilliant workshop (of course).

One of my most favourite wedding venues here in Hampshire.  Especially since it’s incredible refurbishment by Martin Brudnizki.  I can’t believe I am saying this… but it is even better and has won my heart all over again! It is effortlessly stunning and because of it’s unique quirky styling and decor you don’t feel overwhelmed by OTT luxury, yet you subtly feel its presence. The house simply exists in the landscape, and it’s not until you get close do you realise the statement it makes.  It is perfectly traditional, yet it oozes restful, laid back elegant comfort.
