Space & Rock is an online platform which connects those who own spaces suitable for wedding celebrations with couples searching for alternatives to the run-of-the-mill wedding venues. We're being compared with Airbnb but for weddings rather than accommodation. We don't list spaces that are typical wedding venues - most won't hold a civil wedding licence. A couple can do the legal part elsewhere. Our couples just want somewhere more interesting, personal, unique or more relaxed than a wedding venue that churns out 3 weddings a week!
We work with farmers, land, business and property owners who are looking to diversify into weddings by offering them a free platform on which to list their space. We have a huge presence within the wedding industry and ensure those who list with Space & Rock are seen by the sorts of couples that are looking to book a space just like theirs.
Because it's free to list with Space & Rock (we work on a commission bases - if we secure a booking for a space, there's an 8% commission fee to pay) those who are new to offering weddings or don't want to heavily invest in marketing to engaged couples, won't have the burdens of an upfront financial outlay to reach their target market.
Space & Rock is a new business, launched in the Autumn of 2017 with the support of 40 Crowdfunders who raised £10,000 between them to bring Space & Rock to life. Run from rural west Cornwall, we are a national site, with spaces throughout England, Wales and Scotland.
