Couple Spends Thousands on Social Media Wedding

Thousands on Social Media WeddingA couple from Nottinghamshire, UK have spent thousands on a social media wedding. Zoe Anastasi and Will Diggins were married on the 16 June, and as part of their wedding preparations, budgeted for social media management.

The couple reportedly paid around £6,500 to the Derby-based Social Media Weddings to create and manage various online channels, as well as photographers, technicians and copywriters. Social media channels included a Pinterest account, public Twitter and Instagram page, live video coverage on Persicope, a private Facebook page for friends and family, and people to oversee all the accounts before, during and after the couple’s big day.

Zoe said that the coverage would mean that family and friends abroad wouldn’t miss out and “feel part of the wedding even though they can’t make it to the actual wedding”.

Will also mentioned the connected nature of social media: “It’s a great way for people to see to see important events in your life, not for bragging purposes, but if you have someone who you haven’t seen for ages, technology used the right way can be great. It might come across that we’re a bit attention seeking, but it isn’t about that.”
