Young, free-spirited and creative, Emma and Kat’s ability to style with grace, be super on trend and use a contemporary and elegant palette with confidence and sensitivity, means they perfectly represent the comfortable freedom of the modern wedding movement.
From the day we started our business, Coco has always been a major source of wonderful leads to terrific couples. So it was natural to contact Emma and Kat when we wanted advice and direction for expanding our venue. The day they spent with us was brilliant. They have a wide breadth and depth of wedding industry knowledge. They combine this with strategic vision and best of all they understand their couples, so their marketing advice is spot on. We loved it that they could comment on everything from our venue style and how that could be improved, to targeting our customers and long term developing how our venue should look. They know the trends on the horizon and helped us with buying decisions. I know we will have no regrets if we follow their advice as it is so well considered and is giving us great confidence for the future.
When launching Holywell Hall as a wedding and events venue we wanted to ensure that everything was done correctly, professionally and to the highest of standards. The full package of services and support offered by Coco & Kat certainly ticked all the boxes – from the outset they understood our requirements and embraced our vision, in turn delivering an array of support services to cover both the launch and operational aspects of Holywell Hall. Emma has played an invaluable part in the launch by providing guidance on and managing all branding aspects as well as our branding campaign, whilst Kat has been invaluable in the operational side of the venue by delivering various working documents, templates, preferred supplier lists as well as liaising with and supporting potential and existing couples, from venue show-arounds to on-the-day management. Together Coco & Kat have also pulled together an incredible team of suppliers to create our first styled shoot and we are beyond thrilled with the results.
We have followed Coco Wedding Venues from its very beginning and we knew that everything about it resonated perfectly with our couples and potential couples, so when Emma launched her consultancy service with Kat, we were so pleased to be able to tap in to her wedding brand expertise, impeccable style and taste. Initially, Emma gave us a brand "health check" offering streamlined and invaluable advice as well as designing a new brochure. Emma has a perfect understanding of modern, stylish brides (and grooms), but also understood what Pynes House was all about. When, a year later, we wanted to re-launch our website and branding, the prospect of doing so, whilst also running a busy business, was daunting, but Emma managed the project for us and made the whole process so much easier. We are thrilled with the end result and have had great feedback from couples and the industry alike. We have also been privileged to host two incredible styled shoots managed and directed by Coco & Kat. We have been blown away by the images created by the talented teams brought together by Emma and Kat and delighted by the publicity resulting from placement in the top blogs and wedding magazines.
We love Emma at GreenAcres! As newcomers to the wedding industry, we were first introduced to Emma in 2016 and with her amazing advice, guidance and creative direction, she has styled four stunning shoots for us and helped launch GreenAcres Woodland Weddings. Thanks Emma.
