2. Respond to inquiries and requests

Marketing unique as your venue

It’s simple really – we don’t just put up a profile for a new venue and wish you good luck. Instead, we work proactively to promote your venue via the website itself, our blog, wedding showcases, email newsletters and social media channels.

Straight to your inbox

Couples who like your venue will contact you directly from your listing profile page. Messages will include contact information and some details or questions about what the couple is looking for.

3. Book Weddings

Meet and book

We suggest that you meet couples who express interest in booking your venue at yours for a quick tour. Agree on the hire price and house rules, and voila! You just got your space hired.

Reap the rewards
