Daniel Corby wants getting married to be worry free!



“Getting married is a worry” said Daniel Corby, founder and CEO of fast growing directory business 118 Group, “and that is why we are entering the weddings industry with our latest directory, 118gethitched is a leading wedding portal, designed to help you find anything that you need to plan and organise your wedding. And the beauty is, every advertise is displayed alongside checkable references – so you can see what previous advertisers have to say about the quality of their work”

Daniel Corby continues, “118 gethitched plays on the success of 118trades, which was the first directory launched by 118 Group in 2005. 118trades is now the UK’s leading directory service of tradespeople and businesses with checkable references listing over 45,000 UK businesses and we expect 118gethitched to dominate the weddings portal business within the next year. The 118gethitched brand was created by full service design agency, flying saucer marketing, and is being promoted using National media booked by Rathbone Media. Rathbone have already booked substantial advertising for the 118gethitched brand which has included Cosmopolitan Brides Magazine, Roadside posters, Local press and Tatler Magazine. We expect this advertising to ramp up substantially in the coming months as our member base grows and we begin to dominate the weddings business”
