In the dynamic landscape of wedding planning, efficient communication, and seamless coordination are crucial. Wedissimo, the UK’s premier wedding-focused marketplace, found a transformative solution in CatchApp. Co-founder Andrew Bowker shares insights into how CatchApp became an integral part of revolutionizing their approach to wedding planning.

The Origin of Wedissimo: A Solution Born from Personal Experience

Andrew Bowker, co-founder of Wedissimo, identified a gap in the wedding planning process based on personal experiences. He and his co-founder realized that couples faced challenges in connecting with suppliers, leading to inefficiencies in the planning journey. This realization sparked the idea for Wedissimo, a platform designed to simplify the connection between couples and wedding suppliers.
