When Ruth Carpenter and Kevin Townsend got married in February 2018 they were lucky enough to have access to a stunning family property, and they already knew a fabulous caterer.
Even with those advantages, putting together a wedding for about 25 people proved a challenge. Most wedding suppliers were geared up for big events of 100 plus guests. Wedding photographers wanted to talk the couple into an extravaganza of imagery, despite being told this was a second-time-around wedding with just a couple of dozen guests.
Locating a wedding celebrant took many phone calls and meetings. Hiring a suitable marquee was another problem that took a couple of days to sort.
Ruth and Kevin wanted an intimate wedding with a luxury feel, and couldn’t understand why it was proving so difficult.
The result of that experience was the birth of Simply Wed – a luxe popup wedding service to deliver the wow factor without the stress factor.
