Weddings in West Sussex was set up in 2014, by family and friend team, Ash Kent, wife Eloise Kent, Ash’s Aunt Barb Hogan and friend Mike Tod.
Ash and Mike have both worked in the marquee industry for 18+ years. Tents N Events started in 2013. Barb manages the marketing, venue visits, business development and wedding fairs for Tents N Events
Eloise took over her business The Beautiful Day styling and hire from Ash’s late mother in it’s first year, 2014. With an Event Management degree and a keen eye for styling, Eloise has built up a diverse portfolio.
The team had attended local chamber networking and discovered that word of mouth, as well as being free, was one of the most efficient ways to network and market business. Thus Weddings in West Sussex was born. The aim was to encourage local suppliers they work with together to meet each other and recommend one another.
Since the beginning, Weddings in West Sussex has held an annual networking in a different venue each time.
