Hannah Lomas launched Red Event Wedding Fayres in 2011 after working on her Liverpool John Mores University thesis based on wedding fayres and the experience of brides
A Liverpool business that organises wedding fayres inspired by the founder’s university dissertation is set to grow further in 2018.
Hannah Lomas was studying for an honours degree in event management at Liverpool John Moores University in which her thesis was based on wedding fayres and the experience of brides.
After gaining a first class degree, Ms Lomas had enjoyed the research so much that she knew she what her career was going to be and so Red Event Wedding Fayres was born.
She said: “When I was at university, I had a work placement with a bridal magazine and they offered me a part time job doing admin, sales and attending wedding fayres giving out their magazine and registering brides.
“Once I graduated, I worked volunteering for various events and eventually after gaining experience, I quickly realised that I was passionate about organising events.
“I decided to set up my own business organising wedding fayres and offering newly engaged couples the ultimate wedding shopping experience and I haven’t looked back.”
Red Event began by doing two wedding fayres in 2011 has this now grown to eight to 10 wedding fayres a year. Its first Liverpool event of the year is being held at Formby Hall Golf Resort & Spa’s event on February 18.
Ms Lomas added: “We recognise too that in our business, the three most important aspects are the wedding venue, the exhibitors and of course the engaged couples coming through the doors – connecting brides with their ideal supplier.”
