Learn how the media has the power to influence your future bookings
Are you tired of not getting leads for your wedding business from your dream client?
Is your wedding business average when actually you want it to be the HOTTEST, most in-demand one, filled with orders from your perfect client?
Fed up of spending hours sitting staring at your computer thinking of inspiring things to post on social media or on your blog in the hope your ideal client will read it and want to interact with you and eventually then book you for their wedding day?
Un-impressed with the results from a previous advertising campaign that you invested your hard earned money into or the lack of quality leads coming from that paid-for-listing with a wedding directory?
Feet sore from standing up for hours on end at wedding shows only to watch couples hurry past your stand without even the slightest glimpse in your direction?
Did you answer YES to any of the above? Imagine ...
... if there was a way to get your wedding business noticed by your ideal clients in such a strong and powerful way that your ideal clients started coming to you.
And guess what … they have the type of budget you hoped they would have,
their style is also your style, in fact you just know you and your client are going to get on like a house on fire!
Want to know what the secret to achieving this is?
Come closer - I am going to tell you the secret…… ready?
The secret is ...you NEED PR.
I know, I know, I bet you are going to tell me you cannot afford to outsource your PR and hire one of those expensive PR companies.
Well, imagine if you had the chance to learn from an award-winning wedding PR specialist
who has done PR for over 100 wedding suppliers (just like you) over the past 10 years and has scored thousands, sorry, MILLIONS (true! I have proof, I can show you) of impressions of media coverage connecting wedding suppliers to their idea clients.
Imagine not only that but imagine you will be taught in such a way that gets straight to the point in an easy-to-follow, effective manner that means you can start to do your own PR in a matter of just weeks.
So you're probably thinking, sounds great, but it almost sounds too good to be true and what’s the catch.
There is no catch, the only thing stopping you is your belief.
If you don’t believe PR can work, then I will save your time and suggest you don’t read anymore. Also, if you don’t believe in yourself then I wouldn’t read anymore, because for this to work you need to believe in yourself and you need to believe me when I say PR is going to get more of your ideal clients noticing you.
Actually, you are probably more likely to trust Richard Branson or Bill Gates than me
(it's ok, I understand! After all they are a lot older and wiser than me and far richer than me!)
but this is what they have to say about PR: -
"If I was down to my last dollar, I would spend it on public relations" Bill Gates
"Publicity is absolutely critical. A good PR story is infinitely more effective than a front page ad." Richard Branson
So ... ready to learn how to use the Power of PR to supercharge your wedding business?
Ready to enjoy seeing an increase in quality enquiries, get booked more, win new business easier, stay ahead of your competition & make serious profit?

Where I began Nicola Russill-Roy
Nice to meet you.
I’m Nicola and 10 years ago, I closed my eyes and jumped feet first into launching England’s first PR agency solely dedicated to serving the wedding industry – Propose PR.
I waved goodbye to my cushy Marketing Manager role with British Airways and founded my business from my one-bedroom flat in Surrey, armed with nothing more than a laptop, degree in PR & Business Management and a few years of experience.
Fast forward to today and I’ve represented over 100 wedding suppliers, from start-ups to established brands like Quintessentially Weddings and Blenheim Palace.
I won’t lie to you, it took a big leap of faith and a lot of hard work. Early starts, late nights and working from my kitchen table amid the bustle of family life took its toll.
The freedom being a business owner promised felt like a far-off dream. I was working more hours than ever before, my motivation was dwindling by the day and I refused to accept any help. Something had to change.
So I left my kitchen table bubble behind and networked until I didn’t have a business card left. I attended events, met with journalists and made a name for myself as a pro-active wedding PR… and the rewards started to roll in!
Since then, my agency has won awards and secured clients business-building features with the likes of BRIDES, You & Your Wedding and HELLO! Magazine. I’m on the radar of almost every bridal journalist and wedding blogger out there and my clients reap the results from first-class press features.
I built Propose PR to deliver amazing results for the wedding industry and give me the lifestyle I dreamed of. Thanks to passion and perseverance, I get to live that dream every single day.
Still reading this? Then it’s time to take action and make a change to your business Let's do this!
You may have heard the word ‘PR’ thrown around before. Perhaps you’ve tried PR for yourself but you’re not really sure what you’re doing or why you’re doing it.

Let’s jump on a call together to see if this programme is going to be right for you.
Get ready to make sense of PR so that you can start creating your own path to success.
What does success mean to you?
More sales and more money in the bank?
More visibility and credibility within the industry?
Your answer may be all of the above and guess what?
PR can generate all of these outcomes for you.
But remember, PR is not an overnight game changer.
PR takes time!
It takes time to build awareness and for that awareness to trickle down into sales, but Bill Gates or Richard Branson didn’t get to where they are now without consistency, time and patience.
Have I still got your attention?
Good. You are committed to making a change. You are willing to put in the effort it takes to create a successful wedding business. It will result in securing the clients you want and deserve.
Slashing your rates to get bookings doesn’t make you successful.
Work smarter, know your worth and create a reputable, easily recognised brand that couples want to use. That is what it takes to make you successful.
Are you ready to become a PR extraordinaire for the benefit of your business?

"Nicola’s passion for helping businesses maximise their brand and potential through PR is infectious. After the end of our 1:1 I not only had a clear strategy and plan in place but fire in my belly to start really making changes in the way my business approaches PR. Her advice and knowledge has turned what was a daunting subject area into something easier to digest and interesting to adopt! Can’t wait to start seeing the results."

"Ananya has been a client of Propose PR for over 8 years. They were hired to raise Ananya’s profile in the wedding industry. As a result, Ananya is now considered an expert in the field, and has been asked to contribute articles and tips on various aspects of wedding stationery in publications and magazines. Nicola, CEO of Propose PR, is always on the lookout for opportunities to promote Ananya and offer suggestions for mutually beneficial collaborations with others in the wedding industry.
It has been an absolute delight working with Nicola. She is approachable, friendly and warm. She is an expert in the industry and takes pains to develop personal relationships with the right people in the wedding industry, whether they are journalists of the leading magazines or wedding planners."
Managing Director, Ananya
"I have worked with Nicola and her PR team for over two years and was impressed by the level of service and results attained. Nicola is a true expert in the wedding market and knows her clients and their target-market magazines very well. Whether on day to day PR or specific project work, Propose PR are what I wanted on my side to build my brand and get my name known and recognised within the wedding industry".

“Working with Propose PR has been one of the best decisions I have ever made for my business. It's not just the expertise that's Nicola and her team bring to my brand. Nor is it simply their creative ideas, connections, passion and energy. They bring genuine care, and will go above and beyond ordinary PR. It's like they are my agents (more than once they have negotiated deals), a business development manager, a marketing and PR agency all in one. I don't know how I managed before without them”

"I have known and worked with Nicola for many years in my role as blogger, so when it came to planning my PR strategy for 2019 I immediately knew Nicola could help. While I felt confident in reaching out to the press I needed help to focus my ideas and create a list of publications to target, so I booked a PR Power Hour. Nicola was so well prepared for our call, with a great knowledge of my business, target audience and suggestions for where I should be focussing my PR efforts and I came away with a clear plan for the future. Nicola is so knowledgeable about the wedding industry and I would urge anyone who needs support and guidance to get in touch, in fact, I love working with Nicola so much I have added her services to my own packages and services at the B.LOVED Hive”.
Founder & Mentor at the B.LOVED Hive
"There are few PR agencies I will deal with but Nicola and Propose PR is absolutely one of them. What separates Nicola from the rest is her innate understanding of the wedding industry and her professional ability to create and nurture genuine connections from the start. Her pitches are always extremely well researched and considered and her clients well positioned for us to explore opportunities with. I'm also grateful that Nicola is so friendly, approachable and reliable - believe me, not all PR representatives are the same. It's always a pleasure to work with Nicola and her team."
Editor / Founder of Love My Dress
“I’ve known and worked with Nicola at Propose PR for over five years and she is utterly professional and a joy to deal with. Nicola’s clients are all fantastic, and it’s great to know we can rely on her for up-to-date information and images for You & Your Wedding both in the magazine and on-line."
