The Infinite Wedding Company
Hello Lizzie! Please introduce yourself to our lovely couples, telling us what you do for The Infinite Wedding Company, and why you are excited to be part of our team?
Hello everyone, I’m Lizzie Hough and I manage the online marketing for The Infinite Wedding Company, which includes research, planning, design, content creation, social media and management.
I have been working with Becca and Debs for nearly 12 months now and absolutely love helping them grow and build their brand. It’s so exciting to be part of a dynamic community that are set on shaking up the wedding industry, past traditions and dated conventions.
What is your wedding industry background?
I run my own little business called, White PR And Marketing, and many of my clients have been in, or are in, the wedding and event industry.
Over the years I have provided services such as consultation, pr, marketing, design, event organisation, planning and coordination to country houses, hotels, golf clubs, holiday parks, private homes etc…
Prior to this I was a wedding/business exec for a football club, and my role included, event organisation, planning, pr, marketing, business, and wedding communication.
Before this, I worked for a 4* hotel, so I have lots and lots of experience in the wedding industry!
Why do you like working in the wedding industry and helping businesses like The Infinite Wedding Company grow?
I enjoy working in this industry because at the heart of it, it’s all about love, values, romance, and happiness. The industry is also very dynamic and forever changing - no two weddings are the same!
What’s changed in the wedding industry since you started?
Convention and tradition - weddings are become a lot less about following a set of rules and are becoming more about reflections of a couple’s personality and love, which I am all for of course!
If you like tradition, then great, but you shouldn’t feel like you must do certain things on your wedding day.
So, if you want a chilled out micro wedding, with a small number of guests, go for it. If you equally want a big shindig because it fits your personalities, do it!
In a nutshell, do what will make both of you happy.
What advice would you give to couples planning their wedding?
“It’s YOUR day, so do it YOUR way!”
When you’re planning your wedding, you might feel pulled in many different directions. Old traditions may make you feel frazzled, coupled with the judgment that comes from others. I say, there are no rules when it comes to your wedding. You decide what you want, so don't let dated conventions, and others, dictate your dream day!
Give 5 tips for wedding couples planning their wedding
· Eat breakfast and have high energy snacks on hand. It’s going to be a busy day; you’ll need the fuel to keep you going!
· Take some time out to enjoy. Your wedding day will go so make sure you take the opportunity to have five with your love.
· If you are having speeches that include any tech, have a run through prior! Make sure everything is working! Same goes if you’re choosing your own songs to walk down the aisle to. Make sure the timings are right - not to long, not to short.
· Enjoy the fizz but stagger it! You want to remember the day, try drinking water in-between.
· Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy yourselves! You have most likely spent months, maybe even years, planning this, so have fun!

What book or movie have you recently read/seen and why would you recommend it?
The Midnight Library by Matt Haig - it is a wonderful book about a woman called Nora, who’s life has been going from bad to worse. Then at the stroke of midnight on her last day on earth she finds herself transported to a library. There she is given the chance to undo her regrets and try out each of the other lives she might have lived. Which raises the ultimate question: with infinite choices, what is the best way to live?
What fictional place would you like to visit?
Narnia – love Aslan!
What's something that recently made you smile?
