We charge you a monthly fee of £36 billed 6 monthly.
Unlike the commission based option, you will be able to include the name of your space in your listing.
Because most of our spaces aren’t primarily a wedding business, we don’t allow links to websites or social media to be added to listings. Having all enquires go via your Space & Rock Enquiry button will help you determine how successful your listing is.
We base our 8% commission on your advertised hire fee. The advertised hire fee should be the price a couple HAVE to pay to secure your space for their wedding. This must be transparent so couples know exactly what they’d be expected to pay if they book your space.
The commission excludes any extras you may choose to offer the couple at a later date. For example, if you offer accommodation or coordination as an extra service, and you don’t require the couple to book these, then they would be excluded from the commission fee. However, if you offer mandatory additional services and accommodation, this should be included in your listed hire price and would therefore be included in the commission fee.
The thought of running weddings may fill some with dread, which is completely understandable. It’s a high-pressure event with many suppliers and emotions to manage! This is where freelance wedding coordinators can help. A freelance coordinator is the one point of contact for everyone involved, handling all communication from enquiry to post wedding, ensuring a much more streamline process and less admin hours for you. Having a professional wedding coordinator on the wedding day to see in the suppliers, set up the ceremony & reception areas, coordinate the day’s timings, look after all guests and deal with any problems that arise, leaves you free to concentrate on representing the space or continue with other work.
Couples will initially send you an enquiry and will generally wish to view your space. When a couple wish to book your space, they should use the ‘Book This Space’ button on your listing page. You will be sent an email notifying you that the couple have requested to book. You invoice the couple direct to secure the booking. If you are paying a commission fee, Space & Rock will invoice you 8% commission on the agreed hire fee.
If a couple fails to book using the ‘Book This Space’ button, Space & Rock will contact you and the couple direct to enquire whether a booking was made. If a booking was made and you’re paying a commission fee, Space & Rock will invoice you 8% of the agreed hire fee. Failure to respond by one/both parties could result in your listing being permanently removed from the Space & Rock platform.
As a member of Space & Rock, you will benefit from our ongoing promotion of your fantastic space. You can expect the following from us:
By being a part of our community, your space is instantly given a leg up because of the reputation Space & Rock has. We invest to ensure we can easily be found on Google and other search engines. We advertise with industry leading blogs and publications reaching a vast target audience. We regularly attend industry events to discuss Space & Rock. We invest in our social media platforms, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
On a more personal note, all new spaces are regularly promoted via all our social media platforms not just when you join! If you send us great updates, we’ll shout about them. We blog about all our spaces, either in general articles or individually. Send us your submissions and we’ll include it. We’ll also consider your space for our promotional styled shoots, giving you some incredible images to use as you wish.
No. In fact most of our spaces won’t have licenses unless they offer something truly unique. Any couple who has a wedding ceremony in your space can use a celebrant, but will need to do the legal bit elsewhere at approved premises. This could be a registry office or church.
It’s the ultimate question! The price you charge will be based upon three things, your space, the location and the facilities you offer.
We recommend you find competing properties in your area, either through the Space & Rock platform or through a wider search of wedding venues. Find the five that are the most like your space and do some extra research. What are they charging, what’s their availability like, what extra touches do they offer, do they have different rates for different times of the week or year? Then figure out what it will cost you to host the wedding, from extra electricity and insurance, to staffing and post wedding clean up. Then make sure the maths adds up.
If you’re a new space, we recommend you undercut the market, and then once you’re established and have some fabulous reviews, you can increase your price to fall in line with those similar venues in your local area.
Your pricing needs to be as transparent as possible. When you list your price for couples to see, they will need to know exactly what they will get for their money. They won’t want to find hidden fees for example. The less hassle they have understanding your pricing, the more likely they’ll book.
If you offer extra facilities that are not on our standard list, then please include these in the ‘About’ section of your listing.
Varying the price dependent on time of year or week is perfectly acceptable. We recommend pricing your venue with the highest price you’d charge. Any off-peak or discounts you want to offer can be included in the pricing details of your listing.
Your listing needs to be as clear as possible for couples to see exactly what they get if they hire your space.
Give your space a short catchy title that really sums up what’s great about it.
Great photos are key and we recommend at least 10 images that really show off all the different spaces you have available for hire. We’ll also need a friendly image of the space owner/manager. This really helps couples visualise who they’re dealing with and helps them relax about getting in touch.
List all your facilities on offer.
If you offer any discounted rates or special offers, these should be clearly listed in the Additional Information section.
List your house rules. Include details like what time music has to stop, what time wedding guests need to have exited the space, what time the couple need to have ‘checked out’ of the space after their wedding, and whether you expect the space to be cleaned or just left tidy.
Every listing submitted with be moderated, and where necessary, edited to ensure it meets our T&Cs.
