It was a big day for us yesterday as we attended our first networking event!
We decided to pop along and mingle at The Wedding Emporiums Hangout that was taking place at The Centurion Hotel in Midsomer Norton.
For us as a fledgling business it was a really useful experience and hopefully we have garnered some great links we can call upon in the future.
The importance of building a solid network of businesses around you seems to be such a key part to a businesses success, it's is very much like the age old saying - "It's not what you know but WHO you know!"
It was great to see a mixture of accomplished businesses as well as a flurry of new companies who were in exactly the same boat as us.
Meghan and Gemma, owners of The Wedding Emporium were so welcoming and it was a great way to put feelers out for potential photographic collaborations in the future as well as gaining some brilliant advice from other businesses about their successes and failures and where they have improoved.
It was encouraging to hear that so many people have been in similar circunstances and that the key to success is to be patient and work at it!
If you are a wedding supplier or know of one them why not take keep an eye out here for their next networking events.
