It may surprise some of us to know that on average Beech Village hall has hosted 4 wedding receptions a year!!! Well, except in 2020 and probably 2021. Besides the joy they bring they are also a very important source of income for our charity.
Another surprise fact is that over 50% of happy couples use some sort of mobile app (like Bridebook ) to plan and organize their wedding including finding the venue!
We have a problem… we have a lovely venue but no bookings due to COVID and increasingly young couples are not aware of us because we are not doing enough in ‘social media’!
So we have done a lot of work improving our digital ‘footprint’ (another fancy marketing phrase!)
We have a new wedding reception ‘landing page’ www.beechvillage.org.uk/weddings/
We have ‘upped’ our presence on tools like Bridebook.
(We are now 30th on the Bridebook list of 236 venues in Hampshire….. )
And we have a lovely quote from a happy couple who have used our hall:
‘Beech Village Hall was the perfect location for our wedding hand tying ceremony. It gave us the option of indoors or outdoors which was needed due to temperamental weather on the day. We used the indoors for our ceremony with tea and cake. Outside we were able then to take some stunning pictures when the weather cleared on the lawn. Parking big enough and close by for all guests. Fabulous location as feels hidden away and private.’
