Nikki Rutherford

General Manager

weddingsonline UAE, weddingsonline India and weddingsonline Mauritius

Growing up in a family owned and run business of wedding floristry, I have always had a real love of weddings, and the time, thought and planning that goes into them. I moved to Dubai in 2016 to pursue my love of marketing and event planning, creating full 360 solutions for clients across the UAE, integrating online services with on ground events.

As the world became more digital, so did I, with my focus shifting towards digital marketing: programmatic advertising, social media management and digital content. I joined in 2015 as an Account Manager, and in 2016 moved into the position of General Manager, overseeing the day-to-day running of the business from both supplier and couple facing perspectives.

I now manage three teams and platforms in the weddingsonline portfolio; India, UAE and Mauritius. I understand the importance of integrating many suppliers to achieve the shared vision of the bride, and the joy for me is in seeing this transpire. I have spoken at several global wedding industry events, and have hosted numerous industry events including The Dubai Wedding Summit since 2014, which will next be held in Q4 of 2024.

Company profile;
weddingsonline is popular for its mix of inspiration and information, featuring an online wedding directory, competitions, real weddings and daily planning tips and advice.

Launched in 2000, weddingsonline is Ireland’s busiest wedding community and expanded into Indian in 2013 and the UAE in 2014, with great success. We currently service wedding suppliers and venues throughout the UAE and India, by delivering specific leads on a monthly, weekly and daily basis. These leads are always relevant and specific to the client we are sending them to, ensuring a greater chance of conversions.

This summer we will be launching the newest member to the weddingsonline family; weddingsonline Mauritius! Our aim is to help couples plan their destination weddings on the island, whilst also servicing wedding venues in Mauritius, and suppliers across our other networks and platforms.

We understand the importance of working with our partners throughout the year to deliver successful and engaging campaigns, and always strive to go above and beyond expectations when assisting both our clients and our couples with their needs.
