we want you
Are you ready for success?
Will you make yourself passionate about your business and industry?
Will you stop struggling to get noticed?
Will you take a significant shift and pivot?
We are here to help, shall we make a start?
What brings us to the here and now?
None of this happened because I am unique or special
Instead this community came together because I found something I am truly passionate about, and it now fulfills me every day.
I figured it out, one consistent step, habit adjustment, and growth idea at a time. I have worked through and challenged the missteps and celebrated the successes. I have honed the launches, and overcome the burnout, to create a community that is much more than just a nice place to hang out with your mates.
I believe in the philosophy that the best mentors always see themselves as students first. So, when I’m not working in our community, I’m working on myself. I am committed to the progress, journey and experience and ultimately the results you see and in turn embrace. Because of this I want to help you measure your success in order to feel good about yourself, take control of your business and ultimately success. This will enable you to reap the rewards of your investment, hard work and commitment.
After a 16 year corporate life, and 10 years running a successful wedding photography business, I have designed a 5 step path for you to take towards success, they are:
Being a wedding creative is an absolute vocation; it’s not for the faint of heart, or the easily intimidated. It is a calling, one you are either prepared to dedicate your life to, showing up consistently or you’re not. There is never a simple path or an easy set of rules guaranteed to push you and your business to the forefront. There is however, always lessons and examples to be garnered from those who have come before us.
I’ve spent my creative life learning to look for growth and opportunity, never listening when someone told me something could not be done.
This is important
I learnt this along the way
There is no substitute for lots of committed, hard work
You should surround yourself with trustworthy, like minded capable people
Balance the chase for revenue with the mindset and self worth mastery
Love what you do, breathing that sentiment into everything you touch
Always be passionate and innovative
Back yourself and show up in this mindset in your business, niche and industry.
Take risks, because thinking out the box makes things interesting
Strive everyday to be the best at what you do
Blend family and work
Be true to yourself, your beliefs and your brand values
I know this beautiful place called “creative community” where abundance, mastery, purpose and empowering awareness meet. I’d love to help you find it.
Here and now
Surely I am just stating the obvious?
It’s never too late to get started in our vibrant community, never too late to invest in you and your business, never too late to book a discovery call with me and see if our approach is right for you!
This is for you if..
You are passionate about your business and industry
Passionate because we know much more than just turning a profit. For us it’s about making an impression. Helping creatives like you, to work beyond “normal” and embrace their purpose and ability. Building an inspired, deeply connected life and business.
You are struggling to get noticed
Many creatives have trouble “promoting” themselves or standing out from the crowd. Taking an industry influencing attitude with their business offering, product or service. Many don’t understand or attract their ideal and perfect clients. Are you second-guessing yourself, believing you are not “cut out” for this industry?
Ready for a significant shift and pivot
We want to support your transformation, as you show up, and identify your unique voice and the exceptional skill and talent you have to offer. On your journey with this community by connecting with other creatives, finding inspiration amongst them, you will develop from competition, combat and frustration.
At the end of the day it’s about understanding yourself, and the potential you have. Allowing yourself to find your community and be supported by it. Allowing yourself to be seen, be vulnerable, and be the passionate, powerful creative we know you are. Because guess what? There is absolutely no point hiding anymore…

It really is very simple
Our community method
The shift we have seen since creating our communities is significant. Being part of a committed community ensures professional wedding creatives achieve more success and greater resilience across their industry and niche.
WE BELIEVE ITS SUCCESS IS ACHIEVED BY 3 PRINCIPLES
These principles redefine creative approaches and incorporate the necessary mindset shifts for sustainable success, collaboration and recognition.
Community is not an optional extra is the foundation for showing up as your best creative self and doing your most inspirational work. All the while navigating wedding industry ups and downs, with grace and professionalism.
We know that to truly thrive, our community of creatives need to stop turning positives into negatives and isolating themselves with procrastination and imposter syndrome. That they need to embrace everything we offer and the route through the community we suggest (HERE).
Connected community life is a skill, not just an opt-in, and it is something you need to work on daily.

"If you’re looking for a community that truly embodies ‘collaboration over competition’, then the County Wedding Club is it. In a room full of creatives, your opinion is heard, your ideas are magnified and your business is given the vital fuel it needs to get on the road. In the year that I’ve been involved with the club, I’ve found clients and built my dream wedding too! The support that Tasha offers is second to none. She truly pours her heart and soul into every member - it’s amazing to finally feel like someone cares about your business as much as she does!"

Here is what you will find inside
Your passion, and ambition
Would it feel amazing to always attract couples who value your craft, respect you as a wedding professional and offer you complete creative freedom? With this heartfelt relaunch we have defined a clear path to help you start.
Pillar 1 - MASTERY
Understand and take ownership of the perfect mindset of a highly successful wedding creative. Apply what you need to, resolve what you need to move away from and establish boundaries, work practices and healthy life/work blend.
YOU are the only one able to drive the success you deserve so the first thing we’re going to focus on is helping you secure the perfect mindset, mastering your approach, never holding yourself back.
Why not start your VIP membership today, you can find the details below.
Pillar 2 - PASSION
Build and find your audience.
Define and build a solid foundation. When its in place, explore every part of it, then focus on how you can build absolute recognition and engagement options for yourself. Build an audience of exceptional, committed, in tune customers. From social media to list-building to PR, we’ve got you covered!
Pillar 3 - PURPOSE
Set up a solid business purpose.Once we’ve worked on your mindset, and we have worked on fine tuning your audience understanding.
As a leader, your purpose drives your business strategy, the way your company is organised, how your success is defined, which clients you take on, how your company and you personally develop.
Without a purposeful holistic “inside and out” focus, you’ll end up with all the good intentions to be good without being able to actually do good. Let’s get your purpose passionately and professionally perfected.
Pillar 4 - ENGAGEMENT
Purpose-driven creatives witness higher industry gains and tend to grow three times faster than their competition, all while achieving exemplary customer satisfaction.
Couples definitely identify with a creatives purpose, seeking to connect at a deeper level than even the “brand” initially allows, understanding who you are personally and who you want to be.
Increasingly, businesses are harnessing the power and opportunity of aligning their purposes with societal good, and abundant heart-lead marketing. This section is about outpacing your competitors and leaving an impact on everyone you touch.
Pillar 5 - REVELRY
It’s vital to place emphasis on celebrating wins big and small, when working in your business. In many cases even the biggest projects and accomplishments are filled with smaller victories and moments to be proud of.
Any achievement should be shared and celebrated. Self-recognition should be provided after every successful project completion, aligned to couple orientated wins as well as milestone completion. Focused on the learning of new soft skills, when honouring company values, as well as simply getting a project completed.
Recognition is effective when provided regularly and shared in the moment. Taking time to craft this properly, enhances your mindset and demonstrates you observe and value your excellance and effort.
We also believe
We impact the following
After nearly 4 years of work our community has cultivated, complemented, and strengthened the support and work networks of wedding creatives across the South of England. We have influenced their well-being, helped them learn resilience and connectedness, as well as supported pivots, growth exercises and significant mindshift changes. All positively and hugely impacting their businesses and lives.
The further skills we believe we impact for our creative wedding professionals are:
Skills one and two
GRATITUDE: Understanding why taking a focussed decision to influence the positive impact the wedding industry has on couples and creatives everyday lives has importance. Why challenging preconceived ideas and unhealthy habits is vital. Why sharing the appreciation we have as a community for other colleagues, other creatives, our competition and our industries influencers changes the paths we take and the impact we generate.
Skills three and four
GROWTH MINDSET: Why being actively considerate to others, and always committed and consistent with our support to them is important. Why working to collaboratively elevate the power of our togetherness, and highlighting the true necessity of our very professional and considered services to modern couples makes us the only natural choices for their days. Why stepping into a stronger and more influential creative mindset cementes the future success and relevance of our industry.
UNDERSTANDING WHY: Looking at why we should regularly connect with our sense of meaning, gratitude and purpose (no matter how hard). Why taking time to identify how our daily activities, actions and tasks support bigger goals, help others, or simply contribute to a cause, for our businesses, our community and our wider industry.
SELF-CARE: Why actively nurturing kinder more considerate friendships with ourselves, our colleagues, our competition and our industry is vital. Why practicing self-compassion and kindness, why learning how to reset, lean in and renew is a respectful necessity. Why finding ways to fuel your mind, body, and soul makes you a stronger wedding creative with a more defined and prosperous future.
There are hugely important work, life and success motivations, reasons and results to gain from being part of our community. Our mindful practices fit alongside our business commitment easily. They serve to strengthen our skills, build on what is working, navigate the stresses and demands of our complex industry, and ensure the avoidance burnout, overwhelm and anonymity.
