We offer a beautifully curated and thoughtfully written daily reminder of the meaning of weddings and value of marriage. We empower women to feel good about themselves and make wise choices around the planning of their wedding.

Everything we do is done out of an absolute passion for inspiring others. We believe with all our hearts in weddings and in love.

As a result, our content is authentic, engaging and trusted.

Love My Dress was founded in 2009 by Annabel Beeforth, following her own wedding of the same year. Now, Love My Dress® is recognised as a leading blog and authority on weddings not just within the UK but around the world. In 2015, we established a leading edge wedding directory – you’ll find it at

Annabel Beeforth

Blogger, Author and Founder/MD of Love My Dress

I'm the founder and Editor of Love My Dress - a blissfully happy country dweller who lives by the seaside in Whitby, North Yorkshire - my spiritual home. I'm a lady with a serious social media obsession and fondness for capturing a beautiful sunrise for sharing on my personal Instagram account. Aside from blogging, my passion is photography - I'm rarely found without my trustee Olympus Pen camera close by.

Away from the blog, I love spending time with my husband and two daughters Eska Eleanor and Leanora Rose, and our three pooches IzzieWinifred and Maggie. I also love walking and exploring the North Yorkshire moorland, watching Netflix, listening to Woman's Hour or catching up with the latest Nordic-noir TV.  I love jazz, velvet and high heels. I love reading books about real people and travelling by train. And I'm a complete and utter Charlotte Tilbury obsessive - she does the best eye makeup in the world. In April 2013, I had my first book, Style Me Vintage Weddings, published in the UK, USA and Australia.

I truly do love what I do and take great joy from sharing people's weddings and connecting couples with brilliant wedding suppliers.

Sponsor/Admin Manager

Before joining Love My Dress® in May 2014, I spent over 18 years working in administration for the public sector. I’m a real people person - there’s nothing I enjoy more than meeting new people and learning all about them - that’s why I find it both inspiring and an absolute joy to work behind the scenes for Love My Dress®. The amazing images, beautiful stories and special features are lovingly created by a collaboration of creative professionals. It’s a genuine pleasure in my admin role to connect with all the lovely newly-weds and the professionals who support them to make their wedding day unforgettable.

When I’m not happily organising the administration for Love My Dress, I can be found tending to my greatest pleasure in life - spending precious time with my family and friends, chatting, laughing and making happy memories.

    I am officially a wedding addict. After more than a decade in this amazing, wonderful industry, I still love every minute of it. I started out as a wedding planner back in 2003 after my own wedding (yes, I am that girl!) and had the most fabulous time, working on weddings right across the UK, recruiting staff, speaking at conferences, appearing on TV, running workshops and training courses and writing for magazines whilst growing my business into a multi-award winning company. I also had my first book published in 2006.

    After being asked by some of the talented people I’d met whilst planning if I would help them out with their businesses, I quietly got on with that for a few years (whilst also publishing my second book in 2010). Eventually, I officially launched Candid Apple in January 2013 and I’ve not looked back since. Every day, I sit at my desk and count myself lucky – I get to work with truly brilliant people in an industry I adore. It doesn’t get better than that. Away from work, I’m an endurance walking junkie, a demon baker and I continue my quest to own and read every Agatha Christie novel. I live with my partner, my son, my two step-kids and a black Labrador who spends her days snoozing under my desk and dreaming of bones and balls. I absolutely love what I do and I am just so thrilled to be a part of Team Love My Dress®

    Social Media Engagement

    I have taken weird, wonderful and unexpected paths in life which have now amazingly led me to be a features writer for Love My Dress and a model in my spare time! I'm recently married and love the fact that I still get to hang out in the wonderful world of weddings and be part of Team LMD. I couldn't live without music or Radio 2. I love being silly and the smell of basil. I adore photos, I speak foreign languages and I'm also annoyingly healthy. I dislike fakery but I'm so attracted to open and honest people. My simple aim in life is to be happy.

      I’m counting down to 17.06.17 and our rural Tuscan wedding; think olive groves, jazz and way too much food. I'm from a linguistic background – I speak French, German, shaky Italian and increasingly comprehensible Swedish. I love travelling with my fiancé as much as possible, especially to Scandinavia and my native North Yorkshire. On a weekend you’ll find me in a modern art gallery, adding to our growing collection of house plants or DIY-ing in our London flat.

      Hello, my name is Caoimhe (pron. Kee-veh). An aspiring writer, my obsession with beautiful and creative weddings has led me to Love My Dress. Coming from a fashion background I will never tire of beautiful wedding dresses and blooming flower crowns.

      I love sewing, loft style interiors, paint charts, and trying new recipes. I also spend far too much of my free time browsing Instagram and pretty blogs.

      I married my husband Jack in November 2013 and had a serious Love My Dress addiction during the planning (which hasn't really left me!) so I'm thrilled to be writing for LMD. I love remote country cottages, log fires, the sound of rain on canvas, castles and things made from wood (our wedding had a woodsy-hobbit theme!), but also love a trendy cocktail bar, afternoon tea, swishy dresses and things that sparkle, so a bit of a mixed personality! I'm most likely to be found with my nose in a book, surrounded by half-finished craft projects, or sat with my lovely girlfriends putting the world to rights.

      I have a slight confession to make…there's nothing I love more than a well-planned, immensely detailed and successfully executed schedule!

      After a successful career in London planning events across the UK, Europe, the Middle East and America, I launched Katrina Otter Weddings - a wedding planning consultancy that brings together my passion for schedules, coupled with contemporary styling, to create beautiful, timeless and classically elegant weddings throughout the UK.

      Over the last ten years I’m thrilled to have been part of so many exceptional weddings and parties, working in partnership with some amazing clients and suppliers along the way, which is why I am honoured to have the opportunity to be able to share my experiences as part of the Love My Dress team.

      Throughout my planning series I'll be imparting some of my knowledge, insights and top tips from the world of wedding planning with the aim of providing you with all of the guidance, expertise and knowledge you’ll need to create a flawless and memorable occasion.

      When I’m not working on weddings or styled shoots, you’ll find me at home, on the border between Cambridge and Northampton, with my husband Tom and Victorian Bulldogs, Betty and Dorothy.

      Hi there, I'm Michelle the creative force behind Pocketful of Dreams. I'm a wedding planner, dreamer, designer and maker of beautiful things. I love nothing more than helping people celebrate key chapters in their own personal stories (I'm pretty nifty with a spreadsheet too!). I believe life is way too short for boring parties and like to think outside of 'what's been done before' to create truly memorable and wow-factor experiences for our clients and their guests.

      I've been working with Love My Dress® for the past four years, having developed a unique series of inspirational style guides, exclusive to the blog. Every month I like to try something new, letting my mind wander and explore to deliver what I hope is an inspiring insight into the world of wedding and event design.

      Alongside my incredible team at Pocketful of Dreams I plan, design and manage weddings and events across the UK and Europe.
