Perthshire, PH2 7LU, Scotland
We are proud to say that Caroline Inchyra has been working hard on behalf of the wedding industry and couples as we all navigate our way through the Covid restrictions. In August 2020 Caroline was appointed Scottish Representative of the Association of British Wedding Businesses and worked with the Scottish Government to develop guidance for Covid Secure weddings. Caroline then went on in October to become co-founder of the Scottish Wedding Industry Alliance with Duncan McConchie of GGs Yard in Dumfriesshire. The SWIA is now the acknowledged representative body for weddings in Scotland and has been working hard to bring the difficulties facing the industry to the fore. A major win was the awarding of the only sector specific funding for weddings in the UK when a £25 million grant fund was allocated in December 2020 and opened for applications in January. The SWIA is now working with the Scottish Government on the development of a routemap for reopening. Caroline also now represents Scotland on the UK Weddings Taskforce.
