The Business of Weddings

creative, coaching,  mentoring,  inspiring


The Business of Weddings is the creation of Laura Charles, founder and owner of Reviva Weddings established in 2007.  Since starting her dream business, Laura has gained extensive knowledge and first hand experience of working within the wedding industry.

Her work and business has enabled her to sustain a wonderful lifestyle, living the dream in Marbella, Spain

and running a successful company for 12 years. 

Lauras´ weddings have been featured in many of the top wedding blogs in the world. Junebug Weddings, 

Style me Pretty, 100 Layer Cake and Ruffled Blog and many industry publications incuding You and Your Wedding and Brides. 

Running one of the most respected wedding planning companies in Spain, Laura has earned the nickname of the Fairy Godmother of Weddings, both from clients, planners and suppliers within the industry, as she waves her magic wand over her weddings and events.

Over the past 4 years Laura´s experience has naturally lead her into coaching and mentoring the wedding business, with a portfolio of clients including wedding planners, interns and industry suppliers.

For Laura there is just nothing more satisfying watching her clients as they make their way into the weddings business from starting up, finding their niche and running their own successful  sustainable businesses or securing jobs in the industry they have dreamed of working in. 

She is always there if her clients need advice on a particular situation or challenge they face, even after years of being in business, sometimes a clear clarification and trained ear to listen is all that is required.

Laura is actively involved in running various mentoring groups within the Spanish wedding industry and will shortly be a board member of the newly formed Spanish WIPA having been invited as one of the most prestigious wedding planning companies in Spain.
