If you're a local wedding vendor no doubt you've heard of our Table Talks, but if you're yet to bite the bullet and book yourself in to one - you might be interested to hear what goes down.
The Wedding Social Co. Table Talk's are an opportunity to come together with vendors in the industry to share advice, brainstorm, and support each other. We unpack a new topic each month - from marketing, to imposter syndrome, to personal growth. The Wedding Social Co Table Talks are fastly becoming an institution.
Who goes to Table Talks?
At each Table Talk we have a great mix of vendors. This might include photographers, videographers, celebrants, DJs, chefs, designers, or any other number of other professions that make up the wedding biz. We've welcomed in wedding veterans to people who haven't yet done their first wedding. Table Talks are a great way to get together with people you would otherwise not talk to, meet people in the industry, and mix and mingle all of the knowledge in to one big melting pot for us all to take something from.
What is the format?
Once we have all of our registered attendees locked down, we reach out about the topic and ask everyone if they'd like a specific question put to the group. This keeps the questions anonymous and gives everyone the chance to let their walls down and share. We can normally get through about 6 questions in an hour and half, and if we go on any longer you can either tap out and get the kids to bed or stay on and keep chatting.
How involved do I need to be?
Share as much or as little as you like. The questions are put to the group, not an individual - so there is absolutely no getting put on the spot or pressure to share.
How do I register for a Table Talk?
Simple! DM us on instagram or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Table Talks are super intimate - we take no more than 12 people, and these spots sometimes fill up as soon as we share the details, so if you're keen - don't hit snooze on your RSVP. Tickets are currently $15 while we conduct the talks over Zoom, and will be back to our $20 rate including the all important snacks as soon as we can meet up again in person!
How can I find information about upcoming Table Talks?
Keep an eye on our socials, and you'll be first to find out the details. Hot tip - register for the event via our Facebook page so you get reminders when it's coming up.
Can I go to more than one?
Of course you can, we love repeat offenders! Because the topics are always different, you're bound to take something valuable away by coming to each talk.

"Thanks for hosting a fabulous table talk evening last month!! It was so valuable to have a mastermind group all talking about the relevant industry topics. It was a casual, fun and very informative evening with talented like-minded people. The Wedding Social Co is such an inspiring and collaborative place to be. I have thoroughly enjoyed the many different industry events they have hosted and the generally supportive atmosphere from everyone who hangs out there! I always enjoy my visits!"

"WHAT AN UNREAL SPOT ! I had the pleasure of attending one of the “table talks” a group of like minded people from the wedding industry all sharing ideas and experiences from all different parts of our wedding world. I can’t express enough how valuable this is!. Not only the networking with other vendors. But also support and guidance from people who want nothing but to see the industry grow! Community over competition."
- Jake, Dirty Deeds.
"After attending one of TWSC's Table Talks I felt so energised, inspired and connected! I'm so keen to go to every TT they host (not just for the snacks). It's such a great feeling knowing that the Newcastle wedding industry is so supportive and inclusive, values which are encouraged by TWSC. It's so awesome that these guys bring us all together like a big family!"
