It has been a rollercoaster ride for my luxury travel brand – Swan Parties, trying to juggle building the business with running a house, and running around after two boys under four. Winter is always a quite season for travel, so in January 2019 I hit the ground running by evolving the brand to cater for high end bachelor parties.
Stallion Parties launch in February 2019 as a new extension to the luxury hen party brand. The concept is the same but catering for men looking for weekends away in top destinations, where size and luxury really does matter.
I have had the privilege of looking after Hanna Miraftab from the ITV series of The Real Housewives of Cheshire, booking her luxury hen party to Las Vegas later this year. We tailored her package to suit her and her girls booking everything from her flights, accommodation, chauffeur transfers and activities to do while they are in the city. This was followed with me organising her fiance, the talented cosmetic doctor Martin Kinsella and his fifteen stags to Ibiza. The cherry on top was also creating their wonderful honeymoon package to South Africa on a luxury safari.
It seemed a very natural progression to cater for all bespoke luxury wedding packages for couples looking for a travel consultant to book, plan and manage all their travel needs in the run up to their nuptials. So it was time to do a full re-brand and launch a whole new travel concept to cater for a wider demographic.
Red Russian Lifestyle & Travel was born in March this year, with a brand new website listing all the travel services I provide. This also now includes corporate travel for individual and group bookings looking for team building weekends away. All the activities itineraries are designed to the company’s values and budgets and have proved immensely popular with a lot of Manchester based businesses.
My previous business was a Manchester based PR agency called Red Russian Lifestyle PR, so its seemed fitting to bring the brand back for my new lifestyle and travel consultancy company. I work with an array of registered ATOL and ABTA protected travel agencies who provide all the flights, transfers and hotels at competitive prices. All budgets are welcomed as we cover everything from budget airlines such as Jet2 to Virgin Atlantic for long haul and Emirates for our luxury travel customers. My team of Red Russianettes then plan bespoke itineraries to make every single step of the trip seamless and unforgettable. We do all the work so you don’t have to!
With the new website live, and some great potential opportunities in the pipeline, its a very exciting time for the business, watch this space!
