Luxe Pop-up Weddings
The Wow Factor Without The Stress Factor
So Much to Think About. So Little Time. That’s Where We Come In.
Organising a wedding is a job many people find hugely stressful, both in terms of time and money. Increasingly, couples are looking for ways to avoid the hassle of finding caterers, choosing a celebrant, searching for a good photographer and locating that elusive perfect venue. They are just as concerned that their special day is exactly that – special.
Now they can have it all, with Simply Wed doing all the work – finding the very best of venues and people to deliver Luxe Pop-ups – intimate, luxury weddings, with options for an after-party, lunch or dinner to extend the celebration. Just the sort of wedding for people wanting style, romance and enjoyment, without the worry. All the wedding party has to do is get to the venue on time and enjoy the occasion.
It’s the perfect answer for couples wanting a day to remember for all the right reasons, while still running their business, focusing on study or saving for a honeymoon or house deposit. Not to mention renewal of vows or second weddings.
Make It A Five Hour Wedding
If you’d like the celebration to continue after the wedding itself, we can organise lunch or dinner at a nearby venue, or for the last wedding of the day you can book the catered after-party if that’s available. When making an enquiry, just let us know what you’d like.

Don’t Just Take It From Us…
“There was not one thing I would have changed. The venue was just gorgeous, the food, the decor, the celebrant were amazing.
“We had the most perfect day without the stress, and it made the day so much more enjoyable.
“We had thought being a pop-up it would be cheaply done because it isn’t very expensive and usually weddings are, but there was nothing cheap about it.
“The planning was really minimal yet I got the things I actually wanted and that’s what made it special.
“Honestly, if you want a fuss-free stress-free wedding without the huge price tag but all the “big” wedding things, then do it – contact Simply Wed, you won’t be disappointed.
“Thanks so much for our perfect day it was so special and exactly what we had hoped for!”
