are you a UK wedding professional ?

Be Part of the 4C Wedding Community - online and in person events

The 4C Wedding Community is for wedding industry professionals only, no brides or grooms allowed, and it's growing fast!

I became part of this wedding industry community run by Tracy Butterfield. The work output from Tracy is mind-blowing! Content and workshops, groups and discussions .....you name it. If it is there to help out people within the wedding industry, she’s on it! And she’s such a lovely lady to boot! Always helpful, always accommodating and always with a smile! I like her very much! But the thing I have got from her and her community is the workshops and the sense that we are all in this together, not competing. The workshops were a total eye opener for me.”

ONLINE

We have a free private Facebook group ' 4C Wedding Community' to communicate, collaborate and support. Join us today!

Have a question about your business? Ask the community. It's a really supportive, positive place to be. Chat about all things Weddings and 4CWA, arrange styled shoots, joint ventures and wedding fairs. Mention your news, deals and any offers to be passed on to clients.

People in the group help each other; bookings have been made and advice and tips given. We have a weekly 'Show and Tell', frequent business tips and advice, plus lots of fun and ways to get to know each other including the new '4C Wedding Community Introducing...'. to really get to know members online. If you have something to sell or promote, that's okay too, but we do clamp down on any spam - that's not helpful for anyone!

There's an e-badge available for your website and social media or emails, so if you want to be sent yours, or are interested in the community in any way, get in touch at info@4countiesweddingawards.co.uk

Since winning the award last year Four Counties Wedding Awards has changed my life in the following ways. It has given perspective clients more confidence in my ability. It has meant I have been involved in some great photo shoots with some amazing suppliers. It has offered advice and training. It has given me a backup of talented suppliers to recommend to my brides, both in other areas of the industry and when I am booked and unable to help brides out.
I have been recommended by and worked with lots of members of the community. It has given me more confidence in myself, changing direction later in my career can be daunting especially when there are so many gifted stylists in this area. 4CWA have helped me realise all things are possible if you have the passion and drive.
The last but by no means least the 4C Wedding Community has given me the opportunity to make some great new friends which is a blessing.
To all the new folks that have recently joined grab every opportunity this amazing group gives you. We are all lucky to have it.
