Winter Wedding Planning Workshops

If you could use a little expert advice, don’t miss the Wedding Planning Winter Workshops at The Corner Store, where local experts will tackle specific aspects of your wedding planning.

One of the things I love about our workshops is that they are NOT a thinly veiled marketing exercise – There’s no hard sell, because for starters, the experts who make up each panel are already mostly booked for the coming season. They’ve been chosen because of their experience, skills and local knowledge, but also because they’re passionate about helping couples achieve the best wedding day possible!

And, they’re workshops, not seminars – so you have plenty of opportunity to have your questions answered. Local expertise means practical, up to date recommendations, relevant to New Zealand, and specific to Nelson. Each workshop provides information that relates to your own situation, not a generic ‘one size fits none’ presentation to the masses.

The next series takes place Wednesday evenings all through August:
