WBC’S THE PANTRY IS COMING
After years of working out what Wedding Breakfast Club is and means to us all, I finally feel ready to launch The Pantry! The Pantry is a members only monthly subscription jam packed full of benefits that’ll make your experience in the wedding industry more enjoyable, creating a unique small community of like-minded wedding suppliers to help each other and create a family for ourselves! Launching on 1st July, register your interest today!
When I started Wedding Breakfast Club 3 years ago, my main motivation was to connect with similar people within the industry and have a chance to hang out with new friends, creating incredible connections not just for socialising but for my business. Years later, I get to work with my friends at nearly every wedding! The benefits Wedding Breakfast Club has brought to my life is indescribable, and with The Pantry, these opportunities will be open to you in abundance.
When I began re-designing the membership for WBC I wanted to create more ‘offline’ events for us to enjoy. It’s the reason WBC has been such a success since it was first created in 2016. The need for human interaction is important to us when we all spend so much of our time by ourselves either in the office, kitchen or studio. The Pantry will continue to create monthly events to look forward to and an opportunity to down tools and go and have a natter with a room full of like-minded businesses.
LAUNCHING OFFICIAL ON 1ST JULY 2019 IS THE PANTRY
Here are the benefits to The Pantry and joining the WBC membership:
- Be the first to learn of new WBC events and business opportunities
- Be part of a smaller, more intimate facebook group, creating the sense of community again with each other. No more 1,400 members all stealing the jobs!
- Belong to a collective of wedding suppliers that’ll help you through the pain points of your business, and belong to a family that will help each other
- Numerous offline events throughout the year to socialise and learn together
For just £15 a month, members will get a whole host of incredible benefits and offers. That’s the cost of a couple of coffees. For £15 a month, you’ll be part of an intimate and inclusive community!
So what’s included:
- 20% off tickets and presales for members for breakfast club events.
Save yourself up to nearly £5 a month on your breakfast club ticket in London and book your ticket before everyone else! If you’ve tried coming to LWBC, you know it can sometimes sell out quicker than Glastonbury. Book your ticket the day before everyone else with a private presale ticket, and enjoy saving a few quid each time you book. Discount excludes workshops and Christmas party
- Private online group for members only to post referrals, questions and get assistants/second shooter
The Pantry will have a brand new dedicated Facebook group for members only. This will be a great space to create a community of members to ask questions, grow their businesses and have a safe space to chat. Post referrals, second shooting jobs, assistant opportunities and get your styled shoots all organised in a smaller, more trustworthy group with your fellow pantry pals!
- Directory listing off the WBC collective
Online directory website of all WBC suppliers, with backlinks to your website. As time moves on, we’ll have supplier spotlight posts on our Facebook page and Instagram, along with more opportunities to show off what you’ve been working on. This is a great way to create backlinks to your website and be part of a wonderful directory with your friends.
- Members badge to list on your website
Show your couples and clients you are part of a wonderful wedding community. It is proven that couples love to know you network within the industry and may even more the other suppliers that are part of their wedding.
- 2 coffee mornings a year for members only
With the huge success of coffee morning in our previous years, we will be bringing TWO free of charge coffee mornings, saving a total of £30. Coffee mornings are a great chance to quickly network with other suppliers and businesses, as well as catching up with friends. These will be held in September and March every year. These are hugely beneficial to you and your business by exchanging information with other members over a good brew!
- Unlimited focus group access
Last month saw the launch of Breakfast Table Sessions, the new focus group format available to just members. Up to 5 businesses can book on to a session and use each other as a trusted and openminded focus group to work through questions, ideas or problems. These are monthly events free of charge, and as soon as the first session is full up, another will begin. These can also be booked online for businesses further afield.
- Annual masterclass workshop
An annual summit for members to attend, network and celebrate the year they’ve had. There will be speaking opportunities to practice public speaking from within our community, as well as workshops and sessions to partake in. Peer to peer learning is incredibly important to the WBC community and the annual summit will be a great opportunity to hone your teaching/speaking skills.
- Members only Christmas meal, before LWBC annual Christmas party
This is the thing I am most excited about! For the first time ever there will be a members only Christmas dinner before our annual LWBC Christmas party!* Come together with your fellow members for an intimate dinner in a beautiful setting and celebrate 2019 with your WBC community! Tickets will be around £45 pp and includes access to the LWBC party afterwards.
*To attend the members dinner, you will need to subscribe before 29thJuly to have access to this incredible event. This is only open to 60 members, and once membership closes on 29thJuly, it will not open until February 2020. So get in quickly!
With plenty more small perks and surprises through the year, The Pantry is the go-to place to feel part of an incredible wedding community and further your business as part an intimate group.
Whether it’s the 20% discount off breakfast club events, or the special members only Christmas meal in December, there are many reasons to join The Pantry and start creating a wonderful and intimate wedding community that I truly believe can change the UK wedding market
