Still sitting pretty a-top the top-10-UK-wedding-blogs cake is Charlotte O’Shea’s Rock My Wedding, which started as its blogger planned her own nuptials and has since expanded to become a whole brand. Its podcast boasts over 100,000 downloads, the book ‘Your Day Your Way’ is on its fourth edition and over 1.3 million people follow Rock My Wedding across social media. This blog’s handpicked directory of industry suppliers – The List – helps couples across the globe to plan their big day and the DIY and Wedding Ideas sections are there for those who want how-tos on handling their dream wedding.
The main focus for Annabel Beeforth and her team at Love My Dress is storytelling and community building, sharing beautiful wedding stories and supporting businesses in the industry, from tiny back-bedroom startups to international brands. With a Facebook community of 5k+ planning brides – with other groups for these members to move into once they are married – Love My Dress covers the important issues impacting its readers, including diversity and inclusivity in the wedding industry, and encourages further thought on the big topics in its Wedding Talk section. And while COVID-19 continues to affect both the industry and those waiting to wed, its #WhatAboutWeddings campaign is gaining traction across social and mainstream media.
While white, off-white, cream and pearl are classic choices for weddings, brides and grooms after something alternative can find what they’re looking for from the rest of the colour spectrum at Rock N Roll Bride. Created by Kat Williams in 2007, this blog aims to be ‘the ultimate guide for alternative brides’. Recent theme ideas for weddings include spring-time pastels with a punk rock edge, Shetland unicorns and food trucks, and The Nightmare Before Christmas (featuring lots of purple and skulls). For couples who are ‘simply meant to be’, weddings don’t have to be simply cream-coloured events anymore.
Born out of her own wedding planning, Louise Baltruschat Hollis created Whimsical Wonderland Weddings in April 2010. Now with a team of experts helping to dispense wedding whimsy, this blog doesn’t feature the fantastical and out-of-budget, but ‘real weddings’ – Alternative, Budget, Classic, Destination, DIY, Outdoor, Pretty, Rustic, Vintage, Modern and more. Aiming to be friendly, welcoming and inclusive, the WWW team shares stories from real weddings and connects suppliers with engaged couples making plans. And while wildest dream weddings are on hold, there are also tips for celebrating love connections during lockdown.
Award-winning wedding planner Kelly Hood launched this boho wedding blog and directory back in 2007. All about all things boho, from lovely luxury to rustic romance, this blog hopes to help couples reflect their personality throughout their ceremony – ‘weddings should be about you – it’s all about individuality. Create the wedding you want, not the wedding you’re told to have!’. Kelly’s focus on ‘fun inspirational and informative’ content has led her to writing for magazines like Glamour, Wedding Ideas and Perfect Weddings as well as the Huffington Post. Believing that all weddings are amazing, Kelly just ‘loves seeing people in love’ – go check out ideas from her and her team of contributors that you’ll love.
Multitalented Julia Braime has been a fashion journalist, lawyer and now bridal blogger, and stays in our top ten UK wedding blog ranking for another year. Noticing a lack of Northern-focused content in the glossy bridal magazines available on newsagent shelves, Julia moved from fashion and law into wedding blogging, hoping to big-up Northern-based suppliers and venues for couples living in the area, or planning to get married there. Julia has also mastered multiple formats for sharing ‘aspirational, accessible and inclusive’ wedding ideas, editing her own glossy bridal magazine, Unveiled.
If you’re England-based and a jet-setting destination wedding isn’t popular (or possible) with your intended guest list, Claire Gould’s blog is where to journey online for English and UK weddings and suppliers. There’s a lot of variety to be found within the English isle, which you’ll see in this blog’s dedicated sections to different kinds of ceremonies – classic/timeless, boho/whimsical, alternative, outdoor, festival, creative and DIY, chic and modern, and black tie and formal. And, well, if further afield is still ideally where you’d like to be when getting hitched, you can also check out the destination weddings and elopement sections.
Still beloved by its readers is B.LOVED, which has been sharing wedding inspo since 2011. Now also sharing lifestyle content, with a team of contributors, this blog aims to highlight the ‘luxe & lovely’, whether sparkling dusty blue wedding inspiration in Amsterdam, hand-painted wedding stationery, or fruits and floral weddings down in Kent.
Inspired by organic, tangible, artisanal, natural and light wedding ideas, Sara Russell’s Wedding Sparrow covers all aspects that go into creating a dream wedding – getting engaged, choosing wedding vendors, which style to settle on for the big day, and honeymoons and travel. While this started as a fun project for Sara in 2011, she has since discovered a genuine love for the sector and passion for helping couples create something different and special to them. ‘I’m here to champion authentic, inspirational weddings,’ says Sara, so if you’ve got a date saved, go submit your ideas, create and chat.
10. Bespoke Bride
After taking a break from blogging during lockdown, the team behind Bespoke Bride are back with bespoke bridal blogging, and back in our UK top ten. 2011 was a bountiful year for beautiful wedding blogs – pals Emily Pettiford and Jessica Turley also launched then, and have since won an award from Cosmopolitan for ‘Best for Bridal’ and have featured in Marie Claire. As well as DIY how-tos for party favours, gifts and flower arrangements, this blog has helpful tips for planning, travel guides, ideas for anniversaries, and even an online shop for hen party games, photo booth props, printables and stickers. While the lockdown has caused real challenges for the industry, and couples ready to start their lives together, we’re glad Bespoke Brides has stuck around.
Collaborating with bloggers requires mutual respect and understanding: respect their schedules; take time to read their content to learn their interests; and only contact them if/when they want to be contacted. You can see more advice in our blogger spotlights.
