The Wedding Business Podcast

Hosted by wedding business coach Faye Cornhill, The Wedding Business Podcast is here to motivate, energise and inspire you to grow a wildly profitable and successful wedding business. Each season Faye will share interviews with members of her community, how-to episodes to navigate you to success, Q&A episodes to answer all of your questions and meditations to help you find a place of business calm.

Episode One:

Hello and a warm welcome to the very first episode of The Wedding Business podcast. 

I’m Faye Cornhill, wedding photographer, business and mindset coach and founder of The Wedding Business Club. 

Through coaching I help business owners reach their goals, and now, with this podcast I want to motivate, inspire and energise you to create wildly successful and profitable businesses. 

Each season I’m going to bring to you a variety of episodes. From practical information that will help you build your wedding business, to interviews with guests sharing their expertise, as well as sharing some of my meditations with you, because mindset is everything. 

So let’s not wait any longer. Let’s dive straight in.

Episode Two:

This week, in the first full episode of The Wedding Business podcast I’m excited to share with you some of my experiences from starting my wedding business. I’ll also let you in on some of the mistakes I made at the beginning and how you can easily avoid them. 

While running a wedding business is incredible, it’s not always easy. So here are my five steps for how you can start your wedding business drawing on the experiences that have really moved my business forward. 

Here’s a recap of the five steps so you can keep coming back to them after the episode. 

  1. Get clear on what it is you want to do, and practise, practise, practise. 
  2. Invest. This doesn’t just mean money. Invest your time, your energy, and be ready for the juggle. 
  3. Find your network.
  4. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. 
  5. Work on your mindset. 

If you’d like to, please leave a review and come back next week for another really exciting episode.

Episode Three:

Today I have the pleasure of chatting with Nicola Dawson, wedding photographer and one of the first ever participants on my Booked in 90 Days group coaching programme. 

In the years since we first met, Nicola has achieved so much so quickly and grown her amazing business into something she really loves. Her passion for her work shines through in this episode. 

Today, Nicola is sharing with us how she started shooting weddings, some of her learnings so far, as well as some invaluable advice if you’re starting out in the wedding industry. 

And if after todays’ episode you’re sitting at home thinking  ‘I’d really like to pick Faye’s brain on …. ‘ Whatever it might be about the wedding industry, please do email me at info@fayecornhillcoaching.com and I’ll do my best to answer your question in a future episode. 

See you there!

Episode Four:

Today I’m talking all about how to run a successful wedding business during lockdown. When I was planning these episodes several months back I didn’t have this title in mind. 

However, things change and we have to evolve. Today I want to bring some motivation, and some ideas for moving yourself and your business forward in this challenging time. 

If you have followed me for a long time you will know I talk about mindset, a lot. Mindset is everything and I’ve always preached about this idea that you have a choice of how you respond to a situation. 

In this situation I am choosing not to stay in a place of panic about my business, and I am choosing to pave a way forward. I am choosing motivation, patience, peace and calm over panic. 

So today I have 7 things to share with you, that you can do in your business during this lockdown to keep moving forward.  

I know it’s been a tough few weeks for lots of you, but know that this will pass, and this can be an amazing time and opportunity for your business.

Next week, I have my very first Q&A podcast and I want to answer all of your questions.

Not just about how to run your wedding business during lockdown, but anything about running a successful wedding business. So if you have questions please send them to info@fayecornhillcoaching.com and I will do my best to answer as many as possible. 

Episode Five:

Last week I invited you to email me all your questions about running a successful wedding business, so today, I will be answering as many of your questions as I can in my first Q&A episode. We will have two more Q&A episodes in this first season of the podcast, so if you missed out this time, you will have more opportunities to pick my brain. 

Today I will be sharing some advice and tips if you’re just starting out in the wedding industry, and how to prioritise your work and get organised for the week ahead. We have questions on using social media to reach your ideal client, and what I’ve learnt over ten years running my wedding business. 

Also this week, I am very excited to invite you to join me in my new challenge launching 4th May 2020. 

If you are a wedding business owner and you feel like you’ve lost your mojo a bit over the last few weeks, if you can’t seem to get yourself moving, or you’re not sure where to turn next, I have the answers for you in the Rise Up challenge. 

This is five days of free coaching with me, giving you exclusive access to my method for building your successful wedding business. Reserve your spot now with the link below and get ready to transform your business in just 5 days. It’s going to be a lot of fun and I can’t wait to see you there.

Thank you so much for listening, and I will see you again next week.

Episode Six:

As you’ve heard over the last 5 weeks I truly believe that mindset is key to everything we do, for ourselves and for our business. 

Now putting this into practice, I’m very happy to be sharing with you my first meditation podcast episode. 

In this guided meditation we will take 10 minutes for ourselves to relax, and to find a bit of peace in the day. 

So find somewhere nice and comfy to sit and I will guide you through the session to leave you feeling full of energy and full of positivity. 

If you enjoy the mediation please do leave a review, and come back next week when another wedding business expert will be sharing their industry experience. 

It’s also not too late to join me, and hundreds of other wedding business owners on The Rise Up Challenge. This is 5 days of free coaching with me to get you feeling motivated, inspired and grow your business. Save your space with the link below, I can’t wait to see you there.

Episode Seven:

The term ‘ideal client’ has become a bit of buzzword and you’ve probably heard people talk about how to ascertain your dream clients but before I help you identify them, I want you to understand why knowing who you want to speak to is such an important part of building your business. 

Getting to grips with your ideal client will play a huge part in building the success of your business. It will impact your content, your website, your social media, and it really is a foundational piece of your brand. 

You might find your ideal client is the opposite to the clients you’re booking right now, but by tweaking your business you can attract the clients that you will love working with, and love spending time with.  You’ll have relationships with your clients based on their appreciation of your style, not cost, and that is so powerful. 

I’m going to take you through how to identify your ideal client and in future episodes we will dive further into how to attract them. 

So, I’m really interested to hear your thoughts. Drop me an email or a DM and tell me all about your ideal clients, or your dream testimonials, and let’s get you moving closer to speaking to those people. 

Lastly, don’t forget doors are now open for The Wedding Business Club. 

The Wedding Business Club is an online and in person community exclusively for people who work in the wedding industry. It’s a place for you to learn, to grow, to develop your skills and to make lifelong friends. 

It’s the best place to hang out if you want to grow your wedding business and get results.

Come and have a read, reach out with your questions and I look forward to welcoming you to the club. See you next week
