Submissions

We welcome submissions and your ideas for features for the blog.

We are particularly interested in featuring real weddings and engagement shoots – so please send in your photos (remember to get your professional wedding photographer’s permission!) with a little blurb about your theme and the vendors you used to: brideofcolour@gmail.com.

Photographers: We are also interested in your model bridal shoots and day after/cherish the dress/trash the dress sessions so send those in too!

Please don’t send more than 20 low resolution photos resized at 640 pixels WIDE [photos with logos are fine] – or our mail box will just die!

How to send: Email – as long as the photos are 640 pixels wide we are happy OR send by Drop Box or We Transfer with your blurb/info/links about the wedding.

Brides/Grooms: We would love to hear you if you like to do a monthly update on your wedding planning up till your wedding day! If you know of a good vendor that should be mentioned on this blog, give us a shout!

Suppliers/Vendors: If you have an idea for a submission for the blog, please do get in touch!

Logos: We don’t mind logos! After all it is all about you, and not about us. As you can see, the blog has a stripped back minimalist look, so logos ain’t going to hurt!

Details: We love weddings with details just like anybody else, but we ain’t going to reject your submission if you don’t have a gazillion details! We want to see people, glorious people getting married, so hit that send button NOW!

Featuring weddings outside the UK: Worried that we won’t feature your work if you work outside the UK? Don’t worry, a lot of our UK readers will go back to their country to get married and will need know of some good local suppliers! So don’t be shy – send it in!

Exclusivity: We understand that as a supplier that you want to make sure your work is seen by the largest amount of eyes possible! So having said that, we like to keep the blog fresh by not duplicating content that has featured on other blogs. If it is fresh and new, we will feature it. If it has been featured on another blog before, give it a couple of months before sending it over to us!

Please note, due to the numbers of submissions we receive we won’t be able to feature everything (though we would love to!)

    Hi There

    I am a jewellery designer based in South Buckinghamshire. Amongst other things, I make bespoke bridal, prom and cake jewellery. I also offer workshops where the wedding party or just the bride can make thier own tiara, fascinator, jewellery. I wondered whether you would be interested in me creating a feature for your blog?

    Please let me know if this is the kind of thing you are looking for.

    Warmest regards

    Hi,

    I hope you do not mind me contacting you.

    My name is Arti and I represent a wedding and event planning company called Amore Wedding and Events (www.amore-weddings.co.uk). Amore has been established for over three years and work nationwide to ensure that the couple and both families have a wedding day or week to remember.

    The company was the brainchild of two young ladies Hemali and Urvashi. They are passionate, professional and vibrant Asian wedding and event planners dedicated to bringing your dream occasion to life. As two young females who are professionally established in the wedding industry, Hemali and Urvashi have now embarked on a journey of creating the first ever Fusion Wedding Fayre together with the private country house – Poundon House on 30th May 2011. The venue and event will will merge the traditional with exotic for one day only.

    It is very common to see wedding fayres and exhibitions dedicated to either western weddings or eastern weddings, and Amore wanted to incorporate both eastern and western ideas to cater for all brides and grooms and families involved in this big day. The Fusion Wedding Fayre will offer an inspirational day out for engaged couples looking for fresh creative ideas and expert opinions with the added bonus of open countryside and beautiful surroundings. The day will be filled with lots of goodies, such as an exclusive mini-photo shoot with Aira Photography.

    The day will host the most creative and exciting wedding professionals in the country, guests will have the opportunity to speak to make up artists, photographers, florists, bridal wear and many other experienced professionals. The aim is to ensure that we all that is possible to make the wedding planning process easy and painless as possible for the bride, groom and the families.

    We would love if you could possibly come down to the event and blog about the first ever Fusion Wedding Fayre.

    Thanks,

    Arti

    If you’re looking for event stationery (weddings, birthdays, etc) with a little bit of a twist and nod towards the ethnic, you’ve made the right click.

    First impressions go a long way, and nothing sets the tone for an event quite like stationery. Co-ordinating from the save the date cards right through to the thank you cards, cannot fail to leave a lasting, classy impression. We pride ourselves in making stationery that you and your guests will want to keep even when the event’s over.

    You may have a colour scheme/theme in mind: our artists can tweak some of the designs to match what you want.

    We also print in languages other than English. Sometimes just one word or phrase in another language can say a whole lot.

    For something bespoke and really different, you must have a look at our Fabriconverter section. And for a stylish and practical alternative to the usual guest book that we all know just doesn’t seem to get round to most of the guests, our guest message cards will prove to be exactly what you need.

  10. Dear Cassandra, Tash and Louise,
    It’s such a joy to read your blog and I would love to share my bespoke wedding quilts with your readers. I am a quilt- maker of high-end handmade bespoke wedding quilts and wedding guest signature quilts. My lovely handmade quilts are deeply rooted in history and narrative and are a contemporay interpretation of the community coming together to make the bride and groom an heirloom quilt. Guests sign beautiful cloth on the wedding day which I handcraft into a bespoke handmade heirloom quilt to last many lifetimes. I also make stunning quilts from wedding dresses as often brides are not sure of what to do with their dress after the wedding and I produce a beautiful quilt that can be passed down. To view my work vist my website http://vintageandfloral.com/pages/luxury-bespoke-wedding-quilts-uk.
    Best wishes
    Jennifer
