WedEd is an initiative that offers young minds insights about weddings as a career and various other opportunities within the wedding industry. Started by founders of two wedding schools at the top of their game, Mareesha Parikh from The Wedding School and Vijay Arora from Touchwood Wedding School, WedEd’s initiative is truly revolutionary during these unprecedented times.
The Wedding School is a Mumbai-based institute which offers certified diploma courses in wedding planning and management. Focused on educating and training budding entrepreneurs, freelancers, and new aspirants within the wedding industry, the school harbors a creative ethos in their atmosphere. Similarly, Touchwood Wedding School which is all set to be launched in July 2020, forwards a similar mindset. Launched by The Touchwood Group, the firm, after two productive and fulfilling decades in the industry, wanted to leave their mark and embark upon an educational and creative journey.
The series aims at teaching young talent about the industry and giving them a direction to head in. With bucket-loads of exposure and experience in the wedding industry to look forward to, the initiative is unprecedented and unique in its approach.
The 6th episode of the series went live on the 18th of April. The panelists included:
- RODENEY BARNES, Technical Director
- KUBRA SAIT, Actor
- ASHWINI ARYA, Director, Thank You Logistics Ltd.
The episode was curated by Mareesha Parikh, CEO, The Wedding School and Co-Founder, WedEd.
Focused on staying relevant and diversifying within the wedding industry, the panelists discussed their experiences with the same. They advised the viewers to always be willing to learn and submit themselves to their goals completely. An interesting aspect that came up was uniqueness and originality, and the panelists agreed upon the fact that what might work for one, may not work for another as the blue print for success differs for everyone.
They also recommended being active on social media and connecting with people who would help viewers learn and grow. Lastly, they stated that everyone grows through a grind- tough times so to speak- but coming out of it stronger and ready to face the world is what matters.
