How did it all start.......

Following preparations for many friends weddings, and then her own, Kelly Spink knew how difficult it can be to find the right products at the right price.  She was constantly frustrated by the word 'wedding' adding so much to the price.

Kelly felt that this knowledge should be shared with others - but did not want to be a wedding planner - just sell the products and give some guidance along the way and hence The Wedding Village was born.

Starting out originally as a mobile visiting store, The Wedding Village then needed a base. In 2006 the decision was made to open a showroom to allow more Bride & Grooms access to The Wedding Village products and services. 

The Wedding Village is dedicated to the memory of Kelly's Mum, who was diagnosed, and died of Cancer during the 3 months that Kelly was setting up the business.  Even so her help, support and opinions ensured that The Wedding Village was launched. "Thank You Mum"

The Wedding Village is commited to helping find a cure for Cancer and to date the Team and families have raised over £12000 for Cancer Research.
