Interested in a successful wedding event franchise?!
I was contacted by the lovely Kelly last month regarding new opportunities that has arisen within Belle’s Events!
Belles Event’s run unique and inspiring wedding fairs, vintage and retro events & makers boutique markets across Sussex. They strive to create an atmosphere of excitement, intrigue and fun. Belle’s Events was born out of suffering an extreme allergic reaction to average, boring & stuffy fairs full of chair covers and chocolate fountains. After creating a stir in the Vintage, Retro, Reloved and Makers scene, they are looking to expand!
Here Kelly tells us of the deal…
The concept it simple and could be the perfect project for you if you’re looking to work in the vintage, quirky, unique world of weddings and/or retro and reloved fairs. I have been hard at work for months, writing and rewriting, making decisions, google searching and generally thinking about how it will all work for someone else, but now I’m ready to share my baby!
The opportunity to join Belle’s Events is certainly not one to take lightly, it’s hard work running events especially with so many people running wedding fairs at the moment, BUT you will have a great time meeting loads of like-minded people, you will be able to work around your life, and the best thing about it all is that I have spent three years making a few mistakes, ones that you won’t have to.
We are thrilled that Belle’s Events Cheshire will be launching in Spring 2015 by our first franchisee Penny Parker!
