We found Andy from the Wedding Insurance Group through #weddinghour on Twitter. It was perfect timing as we were looking to renew our business insurance. Andy stood out against other insurers because he specialises in insurance for wedding suppliers. He has different allowances for claims in comparison to other business insurers. Weddings are so different to other work environments. This wasn’t recognised by other insurers. After such excellent service we wanted to know a bit more about Andy and what inspired him to start the business! Thank you for featuring Andy 🙂
How did you get into specialising in wedding insurance?
Like all great romances it was a coming together of great minds! I had a long history of insuring professionals and my soon to be colleagues had an even longer history of looking after wedding car clients. When you combine the two, the opportunities were endless. Especially as nobody else was specialising in the wedding profession, and in response to a gap in the market, the Wedding Insurance Group was born.
Wedding suppliers insurance
Can you insure any supplier within the wedding industry?
Within reason we will have a product that will suit the majority of suppliers within the wedding industry and even if it is a bit quirky we will certainly give it our best shot!
If people work in the wedding industry but also other industries like caterers or florists, are they able to get insurance with you?
Absolutely. We are dedicated in providing a wide range of products at a good price. Wedding suppliers are our main focus but services are available to lots of professionals. In fact, we have many clients who are event caterers, professional florists and photographers who may or may not do weddings on the side. Furthermore, our sister company Abbeyfields enables us to also provide general insurance, household and motor cover.
