A.S Apothecary is a niche skincare and fragrance label founded in 2014 by Amanda Saurin. Over the last few months Weekend have been working with the brand on its communications strategy, as well as collaborating on content production and planning for the companies e-commerce site and social media channels.
Evolving Elmore Court from a 750-year-old family home into a prestigious wedding and events venue was an ambitious £1m project by new owner Anselm Guise. As well as the full refurbishment of the house, a new soundproof ‘eco ballroom’ was designed and built in the grounds of the Elmore estate. With the build and refurb completed in October 2013, the huge task of marketing the new venue began.
Weekend were invited to develop a robust content, editorial and digital strategy designed to build excitement around the brand, attract press attention and secure bookings. Just 13 months after opening for business, Elmore Court is fully booked for 2015, with an engaged following and enjoying regular features in many leading publications including Tatler, Vogue, Sunday Times Style, Brides, Stylist and more.
Wilderness is a multi-award winning festival combining live music, contemporary arts and an array of theatre, craftsmanship and dining experiences. The story of Wilderness is one of gently rolling back the steel fences and quietly asking people of all ages to live together for one weekend; a story of exploring the widest lens of cultural ambition and inviting the outdoors into the heart of the artistic experience.
Weekend were responsible for designing, producing and managing several on-site events for the 2014 festival, as well as producing an array of visual content exclusively for distribution across the festivals digital channels. We are excited to be working with Wilderness again for the 2015 festival, which takes place this summer from 6-9 August and will be headlined by Björk and Ben Howard.
