Staff Profile: Elise Hughan

Elise is one of our new digital content producers at Easy Weddings, with a focus on video content. She’s very skilled in front of the camera as well, helping to announce the Wedding Of The Year winner last week.


What do you do at Easy Weddings?

I’ve joined Easy Weddings to work on our digital content production, particularly when it comes to video. At the moment this mostly includes setting up a video strategy for both our couples and our suppliers to make sure we have even more strong, fresh content to draw couples into the site.

I’ve been working with our marketing team to boost the number of videos we produce for couples on our social media channels, as well as work on more Facebook Live videos to our B2B group.

I’ve also helped launch our monthly webinars on how you can achieve success with Easy Weddings, and have been working closely with Danni and Grace to make sure we’re giving you as much useful information as possible in these webinars (while still trying to make sure that we don’t overload

What did you do before you joined Easy Weddings?

Before joining Easy Weddings I was working at a PR agency for a year. I decided it wasn’t really for me so I’ve really enjoyed getting back to my video roots, as I spent 5 years prior to that working in TV news production. Give me some raw footage and editing software and I am as happy as a pig in mud!

What are the most common questions you get from couples/suppliers?

I often have couples asking me what the trick to planning a wedding is. While I’ll always do a sneaky redirection to the website, something that I was told when planning my wedding is to pick the three things that you don’t want to compromise on, and that’s what your energy, efforts and budgets should go towards. Everyone has different priorities for their wedding so I’ve personally found that to be a really useful way to plan the wedding I want while still making sure that it suits us as a couple.

What do you like best about working at EW and why?

I joined Easy Weddings because I love weddings and I enjoy working in digital content, so I thought that it was going to be a good, fun fit for me. But I think my favourite thing is the people and the culture here because everyone is just so friendly and willing to help you out. I can’t tell you the number of people I have bugged with different questions since starting here, but everyone has taken it really well and no one wants to get rid of me yet (I think).

Plus we get free lunch on Monday and that really speaks to my heart (and stomach) because #foodislife.

What’s something fun we don’t know about you?

I’m actually getting married on New Year’s Eve this year! So not only is Easy Weddings a good fit for me professionally, it’s been a great tool for my own wedding planning. To both plan and remind me of what I still need to do!
