Here at The Wedding Industry Supplier Network, we are starting to see a pattern that ripples like a huge wave throughout the Industry.
There's an announcement, a press conference and a collective groan throughout the Industry as more restrictions or changes happen and then we are seeing something amazing happen......
The industry comes together, we head to social media, we post, we tweet, we jump on live videos, we share our 'Wedding Wins' we tag venues, we hunt out guidelines, we reassure our fellow suppliers, we reassure our couples, we blog, we write to our MPs, we network..... we come together.

We don't make this about pessimism and panic - we do what we do best as wedding suppliers and we manage the calm and spread some positivity.
.......and each and every time we are hit with another curve ball or another set back it's happening at a faster and faster rate with more and more suppliers.
At TWISN, (The Wedding Industry Supplier Network) a massive part of our job is about being connected. Being connected to what's going on within the industry, being here for our community, but also being connected in the literal sense. Now...we absolutely love social media, in terms of marketing it's helped us build a business without needing to spend on ads, it's helped us share our tips and tricks with other wedding professionals so that they are able to see improvements in their own businesses too.
But we all know that social media can be a tough place to be, some of the time. Here at TWISN we have been dedicated to spreading positive industry networking since 2019, not only within our Facebook group of wonderful suppliers but it's in our very core values.

"I photographed this awesome couple's wedding in London a couple of weeks back. They got to enjoy the ceremony with his family and I prepared some next day highlights for her to share with her family in Hong Kong. We also spent the morning taking some photos around their favourite landmarks"
