More and more of the wonderful brides and grooms featuring on these happy pages are telling me they found ideas and suppliers on wedding blogs. That’s awesome! I LOVE knowing you’re discovering some of the amazing people whose work I feature, and booking them too!
I’ve been featuring more styled shoots on the English Wedding Blog, and I do choose them carefully: they have to be inspirational and beautifully photographed as well as having elements you can recreate without breaking the bank! For some of you this will mean contacting the suppliers featured; for others shoots are more about finding colour combinations or other elements you could use. They’re where some of our best ideas come from, right?
But as a supplier there’s one immensely frustrating side to styled shoots, and that’s exclusivity requests from wedding blogs. Until recently I asked for exclusivity for a few months on the English Wedding Blog; I don’t now. It seems almost greedy to ask for exclusivity: why claim the work of creatives for yourself and insist it’s not published elsewhere?
