Student launches Wedding Heaven

A third-year UCLan Tourism student has seen one of her innovative ideas come to life.

Beth Higson spotted a gap in the market to showcase award-winning wedding venues while volunteering at Visit Ribble Valley and has now launched the 'Wedding Heaven' website which highlights the area's stunning wedding venues to bride and grooms.

Her creative thinking has also landed Beth a role within the wedding and events team at Mellor's Stanley House Hotel and Spa.

She commented: "Studying Tourism at UCLan has equipped me with the key skills and competencies to actively seek such opportunities, and be given a leading role in the development of a major project such as Wedding Heaven.

"Modules in marketing and events management provided me with the essential knowledge needed in the industry, whilst networking and voluntary experience propelled me into my current role as a Wedding Coordinator."

Course Leader Carley Sutton added: "Beth studied the principles and practices of Marketing including website design during her second year of the International Tourism Management degree.

"Whilst studying, Beth has collaborated with a number of industry practitioners who are seeking Tourism Degree students with the business management skills that are needed for the industry.

"Beth is also the chair of the UCLan Tourism Society and is currently in the process of securing her dream graduate career within the tourism industry."
