In these crazy, scary times, we’re doing everything we possibly can to keep your screens full of beautiful wedding ideas, and to help support all of the wedding photographers and other UK wedding suppliers to shine online and fill their diaries for 2021 and beyond. While weddings are going to be thin on the ground this summer, we’re really keen to share YOUR best bits from 2019 – so whether you’re a wedding stylist with a shoot to share, or a photographer with a real wedding you’d like us to blog, please get in touch!

If you’ve never had your work featured on English Wedding before, read my article about getting published on wedding blogs. The weddings and styled shoots I love to feature are beautifully photographed, with creative ideas and inspiration to share with the brides and grooms reading the blog. Details are a BIG deal – but it’s about the moments too. You’ll win my heart with stunning golden hour images, couple shots, and creative decor and styling.

Feature coming soon!

I’m just glad it’s April.

Because in real life, March SUCKED.

And right now, all I want is to fill this blog with beautiful, joyful, sunny, flower-filled weddings and editorial to make you smile.

So please – help me out with this: brides and grooms, email me about your wedding – info@english-wedding.com is me. Wedding photographers, planners, stylists – dig out your favourite weddings and photoshoots and send them in.

Here’s a little secret: the first month of coronavirus went very quiet with submissions. It’s starting to get just a little busier… but it’s still an amazing time to send something in! My inbox isn’t overflowing as it usually does, and I’m desperate to see happy, sunny, flowery photos I can share with our readers.

Check our submissions page and get in touch!

With love,

This one’s for all the wedding photographers, stylists, and creative suppliers out there! I’ve had so many beautiful submissions lately, and I’m really happy to have had submissions from photographers who’ve told me it’s their first time submitting to a wedding blog, or that they’ve never been featured before. Which absolutely makes my world go around!

At this time of year we get sooo many submissions, and some I’ve had to politely decline… but I always try to give a reason when I do. So I figured, perhaps it would be helpful to share some tips to help you get featured on English Wedding, and hopefully after that on other top wedding blogs as well!

 

Step 1 – Get to know your fave blog’s style

Every wedding blog has a different audience and a unique aesthetic, just as every wedding photographer has their own style and approach. By looking at the features on a blog, you’ll get to know the blogger’s style: is it uber quirky? Fine art? Focused on details and vibrant colour? And the key question: will your submission fit seamlessly with the blog’s look and values?

To all of you wonderful brides, grooms and wedding photographers… we’re already filling our editorial calendar for the spring (I know! Like, how is it even February already?) – and we need your help! I’m looking for weddings full of spring flowers and early sunshine, and for photoshoots filled with anemones and hellebores, tulips and ranunculus in bright, positive colours! And as always, EVERY style, size, colour and gender of wedding! And I’d love to have your gorgeous photos all over the blog!

The weddings I love to feature are beautifully photographed, with creative ideas and inspiration to share with the couples reading the blog. Details are a BIG deal – but it’s about the moments too. You’ll win my heart with stunning close up images, the most romantic couple shots, and unique, new creative decor and styling.

Hey brides, grooms, wedding photographers… can you help fill the pages of English Wedding for 2020? I’m looking for wonderfully wintry weddings and photoshoots – warmth and candles and fairy lights, snow and frosty colour palettes and sparkles. And as always, EVERY style, size, colour and gender of wedding! And I’d love to have your gorgeous photos all over the blog!

One of the first things to pop up on my instagram this morning was a note from Annabel at Love My Dress: simply, her heartwarming response in support of featuring LGBTQ+ weddings on her blog, to a reader whose worldview was sadly – just wrong! Reading Annabel’s wonderful message made me proud of the wedding blogging world, and I wanted to (virtually) stand with her and say that ALL weddings are welcomed equally on English-Wedding.com – always. I don’t think I say it enough, to be honest.

So right now I’m looking for new wedding submissions to fill the blog’s editorial calendar in the coming months, and I want to make a real point of inviting submissions of every single type and style and flavour – I’m looking for love, romance, and beautiful images alongside inclusivity, and I rely on you guys to send me weddings to feature! So if you have a wedding you’d like to see published here, please get in touch!

Our fave Northbrook Park wedding of the year! Images by Married to my Camera (19)

This article is for all of the wedding photographers out there who would love to be featured (more) on wedding blogs.

I had an email chat with a lovely photographer last week – she submitted a wedding which wasn’t quite right for publication at that time. I explained why (as I always try to do) and she thanked me, saying often she got no feedback from bloggers. I wanted to try and explain in more detail why submitted weddings and shoots might be declined by wedding bloggers.

Note: I can’t speak for all wedding bloggers – we’re all different and have different selection criteria. But do read on: some of these are common sense and will apply to every wedding blogger.

1. ‘Fit’

Every blog has its look and philosophy. If you don’t know the blog and understand what is usually featured, your submission could be a waste of time. Some blogs are very niche; for example Rock n Roll Bride and Love My Dress feature very different wedding styles. Know where your wedding will fit before submitting.

If you’ve never submitted a wedding or shoot to a blog before, it can be a little scary – I’ve heard countless times from photographers that they’ve been putting off their first submission… and there’s really no need to wait! I LOVE hearing from photographers who’ve never featured on the blog before, and even if you’ve never been published on a wedding blog before I absolutely welcome your submissions. So do send them in!

Hi Claire!(*1)

I’m Sally, a wedding photographer in the Cotswolds(*2). I’ve been reading your blog(*3) over the summer and have a wedding to share with you which I think is a perfect fit! Jenny and Leo were married at Caswell House(*4) in May this year, (*5) and had a relaxed, foodie wedding with lots of lovely DIY details(*6) and special touches made by their friends and family. Jenny looked stunning in a Joanne Fleming(*7) gown and Leo’s tailored suit & sunglasses combo(*8) was fab – something I haven’t seen before at a wedding I’ve photographed! The flowers were the focal point of their day, by local florist Suzie B(*9) – I took so many bouquet photos!

I think 2016 has been our busiest year yet! The English Wedding Blog is growing every single day: we’ve featured weddings and styled shoots from so many new photographers and our inbox is constantly bursting with amazingness… so I thought I’d write a little note to all of you fabulous wedding photographers who are yet to get published here. I so hope you’ll be in touch soon!

Know your wedding blogs!

Every wedding blog has a different audience and a unique aesthetic, just as every wedding photographer has their own style and approach. If your images are bright and vibrant, they’ll look amazing on Rock n Roll Bride, English Wedding or Boho Weddings. If your photography has an ethereal, romantic fine art style it will fit perfectly with Wedding Sparrow or Magnolia Rouge (or English Wedding!).

Hello lovelies! I hope you’ve had a good day and are just about packing up your pens and pencils ready to dash out of the office for hometime… a moment I used to love when I had what we call a “proper job”!

Those of you who are in the business of photographing weddings, I need your help. I’m getting ahead with blog features for the rest of the month (as I’m now an official Explorer – it’s in my email signature and everything*) and I’d love your submissions. I’m definitely in a YES! mood so if you have a wedding up your sleeve you haven’t submitted yet (the lighter and summerier the better!) email me!

Just send me a link to your blog post or facebook album of the wedding. My email is info@English-Wedding.com

Thank you 🙂
