Thank you…


Sometimes I have to pinch myself… I’m lucky, so lucky, to work from a creatively crazy little studio, with cats on the sofa behind me and birds hopping around the garden outside. I have the creative life I’ve always dreamed of; I get to write beautiful articles and share the most amazing images every day – and a handful of years ago my job description didn’t even exist.

Wedding blogs are a weird and wonderful thing. Bloggers, unlike magazines, aren’t held down by printing deadlines; we can publish important news immediately; we can be as creative as we choose, and make up all of our own rules as we go along. And none of this could ever happen without the amazing brands who support and sponsor us.

I would love it if you could spend five minutes (or more!) checking out some of these guys. They are all sponsors of the English Wedding Blog – and I work closely with them to share inspiring weddings, ideas and inspiration with all of you on a daily basis. They’re handpicked by me for being awesome at what they do, and if you’re looking for suppliers you should definitely investigate some of the names you see here!


Hello lovelies! Don’t you think March is flying by? I need a little luck this morning as it’s time to get my little Vespa’s MOT done… but before I scoot out to the garage, I wanted to say thank you to some of the people who are supporting the English Wedding Blog. Without these guys I genuinely couldn’t write the blog. It wouldn’t exist as it does: we’d have half the number of amazing weddings to share, and nowhere near as many features to show you each week. Sponsors or advertisers are what keep wedding blogs going, and I’m grateful to every one of these lovely people from the very bottom of my heart. I’d love for you to take just a few moments of your morning to consider them for your own wedding day:

This month has flown by already, and plans to keep the English Wedding Blog publishing over the Christmas period are well underway! Once again I’d like to say a huge thank you to my amazing sponsors as well as to all of our friends in the wedding industry for your support, submissions and shares. You’re the best.

You’ve one last chance to join as a sponsor before the January rush, so if you want to get your business in front of the 800,000 (really?!!! source) newly engaged couples in the next few weeks, now is the time to join the English Wedding Blog and start sharing regular features with us!

Current sponsors of the blog are:

Bunny Delicious (do check out Zoe’s facebook page – she’s been a super busy bee recently and we love Betty Scribbles…)

Summer Lily Studio – I’m so thrilled for Terri: she’s a Rock My Wedding star!

These guys make the English Wedding Blog work. It’s not me… I curate the real wedding features, I write articles and features, and I hand pick the weddings we feature here. But without my fabulous sponsors the blog simply wouldn’t be able to share so much – and I wouldn’t know half of what I’ve learned about weddings over the last six years. Fact.

So today I want to say a huge thank you to the little group of handpicked sponsors who support and inspire the English Wedding Blog. They are:


I don’t say thank you often enough. I would love to be someone who lights up people’s days by sending surprise thank you cards… but time runs away with me and I rush from one project to another. Even as I write this, I’m making a note in my calendar to ‘say thank you’ to someone once a month! After all, the English Wedding Blog wouldn’t exist without so many wonderful suppliers sharing their images, tips and advice here – I have a LOT of people to thank!


I’ve had some amazing thank yous this summer. There’s nothing better than a surprise card or letter from a bride and groom, after the wedding – believe me: you’ve no idea how thrilled your favourite suppliers will be to hear from you out of the blue!

7 different ways to thank your wedding suppliers

  1. Write a thank you card. It doesn’t have to take long: spend 15 minutes writing a heartfelt thank you to a supplier whose personal touch made a real difference to your day. They’ll love you for it!
