Happy days! Today’s blog post has taken an AGE but it’s been worth it – I’ve just set up AND sent out our first member emails for suppliers!! If you’re an English Wedding member, there should be something lovely in your inbox… and I hope to hear back from you soon!
English Wedding members get priority with wedding submissions – the main benefit to joining us is to have your work featured on our blog. The emails I’ve sent exclusively to our members were all about submissions for the next couple of months – and I’m excited to have some fabulous wedding inspiration to share in the next few weeks.
Membership starts from only £40 a year. You can find out more here.
If you’re not a member of the blog, you can still have a home page feature on English-Wedding.com.
- with a shoot or wedding promoting inclusivity and diversity
- as part of a photoshoot with other suppliers, if just one of you joins us as a member
So what are we looking for?

I love to promote micro weddings – to reassure couples that those tiny celebrations can be as wonderful as a wedding with 100 guests. There’s something truly special about celebrating a) with your closest family and friends only, and b) in the context of the pandemic. The hashtag #loveisntcancelled is everywhere – but we really need to visually support it with real weddings and elopements right now.
I also want to see weddings from 2019 – as a beautiful reminder of couples with their guests – hugs, group hugs, laughter and those human connections we’re missing so much right now. These are the things I love to share on the English Wedding Blog.
HOW TO SUBMIT
Photographers, please ask your bride and groom for permission to publish their wedding on the English Wedding Blog before you submit images. Then check out our submissions page to help you get started.
2) STYLED PHOTOSHOOTS
Please send me a link to a Dropbox folder containing 60ish of your most beautiful, bloggable images. Please note I ONLY use Dropbox for submissions; no other file sharing service. Images should be 1024px wide – and there’s more info on wedding blog submissions here.
Let’s fill the wedding bloggy world with happiness and light, and offer a little joyful encouragement to all the lovely couples out there who are looking to get married in the next couple of years. Because love really isn’t cancelled – and it’s up to us to prove it!
