Diversity first

We’re working to represent everyone on English Wedding. We want to see and feature weddings with Black brides or grooms, Asian weddings, minority ethnic weddings, LGBTQ+ weddings, elopements and alternative celebrations. Please help by submitting all the wonderfully diverse weddings under the rainbow – we’d love to share them!

Members get priority

Gold, Silver and Bronze members of English Wedding are guaranteed a certain number of feature opportunities on our blog. To get priority consideration, check out our membership information pack for wedding suppliers.

You don’t have to be a member of English Wedding to submit a real wedding or styled shoot. Keep reading!

So what are we looking for?

The weddings and styled shoots we feature are beautifully photographed, creative and inspiring. We do adore details: the fold of a silk ribbon, calligraphy close ups, or a stunning statement bouquet. But we fall head over heels for romance too: a glance, a forehead kiss, magical light… We also want to see couples with their guests – hugs, group hugs, laughter and those human connections we’ve learned to treasure so very much. These are the things we love to share on the English Wedding Blog.




Couples – email Copy your photographer in on the email, and we’ll take it from there!

  • check your couple are happy with you giving us their email address and being featured
  • email and include:
    • your couple’s email address (we’ll send them an online interview form)
    • A WeTransfer or Dropbox folder containing 60ish of your most beautiful, bloggable images.

Images should be 2000px wide. Please send lots of detail images (flowers, stationery, venue styling) and couple portraits.




Please send a WeTransfer or Dropbox shared folder containing 60ish of your most beautiful, bloggable images.

Images should be 2000px wide

We’ll always try to reply within 14 working days to every submission. If it’s a yes, you’ll be given a date for publication, which will usually fall within 8 weeks of receiving your submission. It could even be the following day, if we have a slot free and LOVE your submission!

From the images you send, we will select 30-40 favourites for the blog: these will be the images we feel will inspire readers the most, and those which are beautifully photographed, overflowing with romance and take my breath away.

Please be aware that by submitting your images to the English Wedding Blog you are agreeing to us publishing them. Occasionally we’ll publish the day after you send in your submission; so it’s really important that you don’t submit to other blogs at the same time,  that any exclusivity clauses from other publishers have ended, and that you have permission from everyone involved. Once submissions are made they can’t be withdrawn. 

Wedding blogs actively encourage sharing to Pinterest by our users and editorial teams. At English Wedding we try and alt-tag all images with the photographer’s name because the alt tags feed through to Pinterest descriptions. We also encourage the use of (subtly) watermarked images so that where these are shared on social platforms people will see your brand. Do watermark your images if you’d prefer to; don’t submit if you’re not happy for them to be Pinned or shared on social media. By submitting your images to the English Wedding Blog you agree to us sharing your images across ALL of our social media.

Get in touch:

Wedding experts, wedding suppliers

If you have a product launch, new website, exhibition or exciting event you’d like us to share, please ask. We’ll send you our media pack. We’re happy to share our Directory members’ beautiful stationery collections, wedding cake designs, contemporary accessories and wedding ideas with English Wedding readers, so long as they fit the aesthetic of the blog. This means professional photography please – always.

And if you’ve an advice article up your sleeve we’d really love to hear your idea for a guest blog post! Send us a quick email with your idea and if it fits, we’ll get back in touch with what happens next!

A note on exclusivity

We’re often asked if suppliers are ‘allowed’ to share images before we publish a shoot, or if we accept submissions of weddings or shoots which have already been featured on other blogs. The answer is a resounding YES!

We don’t like exclusivity policies: they’re limiting, and we’d rather see suppliers able to feature their work on every blog and print magazine, to get the most exposure they possibly can for their brands.

The only thing we ask is that you don’t submit to different publications simultaneously. If a wedding or shoot is published on more than one blog in the same week, it’s just a bit… cringe. It’s also better for your business to spread out your submissions!

Love your site Claire, great concept as well as execution. Will definitely submit some photos next time I have a ‘perfect’ wedding if you know what I mean 🙂

    Claire · October 25, 2010 at 4:07 pm

    Hi Sarah, do submit your weddings – and remember they don’t have to be perfect: interesting, creative and inspiring (in any way!) is the first thing I look for. A wedding with a story is also something that really appeals: sometimes when things go wrong and love conquers all it makes for a compelling read!

Hello there! I have just googled Kirstie’s Vintage wedding and found your website. Wanted to say a huge thank you – I’m the mother of the bride (Amy) featured in the wedding programme! We too are waiting with baited breath (due to be screened on 29th Nov) to see the outcome – have to say the calligaraphy was beautiful. We have all kept our name place settings as momentos of a truly wonderful day. Thank you again for your amazing contribution. Warm wishes Jan & Paul – proud parents!!
