What is Nearly Weds?

Our Story

Nearly-Weds was founded in 2019 by Melanie Brook and Joseph Drein (not a couple!), Mel having spent many years working as a wedding planner for venues, while Joe is a techy with an aptitude for code and bringing design to life. Initially they worked together at their digital marketing company which they co-founded, Bespoke Hub, where the team specialised in creating customer opportunities for wedding venues and suppliers a like.

Nearly Weds provides all couples with a simple and easy way to browse, plan and organise their own unique wedding day.

Whether you are on a mission to find something wild and wonderful or you are looking for a simplistic affair. Nearly Weds suppliers are carefully selected, each with their own review rating so you can make informed choices based on the experiences of your fellow couples. From flowers to photography and everything in between, Nearly Weds has a wedding supplier to suit all budgets and themes.

As Bespoke Hub grew, they realised that individual wedding suppliers without technical skills and smaller marketing budgets were either priced out of the digital marketing channels, or were paying to be listed on high cost annual subscription wedding planning websites where often the suppliers just weren’t getting any returns on investment.

So Nearly-Weds was born. The duo realised that if they could create a platform where suppliers and venues of all shapes and sizes could come together, the result would be a one stop marketplace for all Nearly Wed couples. The couples would be using the site to help them source and review the best suppliers for their big day. Nearly Weds is unlike other expensive wedding listing sites as the site works on a pay per enquiry basis. So, our suppliers only pay a small admin fee to be listed on the site and then only part with their hard-earned money for each genuine customer enquires that Nearly Weds generates!
