Ten years ago, I created a wedding blog, a place I could share all the things I discovered that brought me joy whilst planning my own wedding. Today, Love My Dress® has become a wedding planning haven for thousands of brides all over the UK and the world. Every day, we share real weddings, bridal fashion, emotional and planning advice and supplier recommendations.

We cultivate a thriving online community of brides and people planning weddings, and we take joy in connecting them with talented businesses who are making, creating and providing exceptional experiences. We encourage heartfelt celebrations through effortless storytelling and honest, uplifting and relatable content. We seek to provide a daily reminder of the meaning and value of marriage, and empower those planning a wedding to feel good about themselves and make wise and authentic choices.

We feel a deep sense of loyalty to and are passionate about championing the wedding industry; from tiny new startups and solo entrepreneurs to
big brands, venues and experts in their field. We’re geeky about brand awareness and are immensely proud of the trusted and reliable space we have created to showcase creative talent.

We are an ally of important and worthy social causes that include sustainability, equality and LGBTQ+ rights. We are also on a mission to wipe out sizeism in bridal fashion and introduce a more diverse and inclusive space for those planning weddings.

We’re not driven by trends or algorithms – we’d rather listen to our community and deliver what we know they wish to see – authentic, considered content that makes our own hearts sing. When our news feeds are filled with disaster and tragedy, it give us purpose and pleasure to spread some daily love and joy.

Explore our archive, dive into our directory to find suppliers or get in touch if you have any queries – we’d love to hear from you.

Annabel Beeforth

Blogger, Author and Founder/MD of Love My Dress

I'm the founder and Editor of Love My Dress and Little Book. I am also a blissfully happy country dweller who lives by the seaside in Whitby, North Yorkshire - my spiritual home, along with my husband Philip and our two daughters, Eska Eleanor and Leanora Rose. We're accompanied by 3 adorable hounds IzzieWinifred and Maggie and a few chickens too.

Aside from my job, my passion is photography, and I'm rarely found without my trustee Olympus Pen camera close by. I love sharing some of the images I've taken over on my personal Instagram account. My other passion is supporting women to succeed and find joy in business and in life. Some might say that makes me a Feminist :)

Away from work, I adore spending time with my family, walking and exploring the North Yorkshire moorland. I truly do love where I live, the landscape is spectacular and the people are so friendly.  I also love to watch Netflix, listen to Woman's Hour or immerse myself within a spot of Nordic-noir TV. I'm a sucker for a good audio book and I adore jazz. 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 the greatest of joys from knowing we've created such safe spaces and communities to support women from such diverse backgrounds. Creating a platform that is as inclusive and representative as possible of all the many wonderful women who enjoy visiting Love My Dress, is of the greatest importance to me.

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.

    Senior Writer

    I’m officially a wedding addict and have been part of the brilliant, creative and loved-up world since 2003. I started out as a wedding planner back after my own wedding (yep, I’m that girl!) and had an amazing time doing lots of things I’d only every dreamed about doing - writing books, appearing on TV, speaking at conferences, winning a couple of awards and, most of all, being my own boss! I’ve been a freelance writer since 2013 when I launched Candid Apple and haven’t looked back since. Every day I sit at my desk thinking ‘wow, this really is my job’ and I’ve been part of Team LMD for over three and a half years. I’ve loved, and still love, every minute.

    Away from work, I’m a netball junkie, playing and coaching several times a week. I’m on a quest to own and read every single Agatha Christie novel and I’m a bit of a history geek too. I live on the very edge of the Chilterns in South Oxfordshire with my son (when he’s not rowing!) and my black Lab who spends her days snoozing under my desk and dreaming of long walks and good food.

      Fashion

      I cut my teeth in the world of fashion journalism, quickly adopting the digital world as my outlet in support of emerging talent and to wax lyrical on the beautiful things I come face to face with every day. After several years as an editor in the trend forecasting industry, spotting and discussing the next big thing became the subject of a personal blog, Sarah-Leighs StyleFiles.com, and is still a subject I lecture on at universities in the South.

      My talent for trend spotting, not just in the realms of fashion, but also in the arts and travel also led me to a post at OliviaPalemo.com as International Contributing Editor and I still enjoy sharing my tops tips over on the popular style portal now. These days I spend the bulk of my time as the Content Marketing Manager for a large British retailer and am the co-founder of events and communication agency What Peggy Did Next. As well as coordinating and styling events from launches to weddings, WPDN are also the team behind Bridal Boot Sales, currently operating in Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset and Essex.

      I love sharing my thoughts on wedding trends and bridal style with the readers of Love My Dress®, not to mention introducing you all to some of the top talents in the industry I'm lucky enough to work with!

      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.

      I’m a planner, strategist, designer, thinker, doer, perfectionist, artist, creative, partner, friend, and I’m passionate about supporting the incredible community of Love My Dress readers by sharing my knowledge of weddings and wedding planning via regular, HONEST and practical planning features.

      As part of the Love My Dress team, I love having the opportunity to explore different aspects of wedding planning and since 2015 have covered everything from learning how to embrace imperfection to pressures, worries and wobbles.

      You can find out more about who I am, what I do, my style, my approach, and the wedding planning support services I offer at Katrina Otter Weddings.

      After following Love My Dress religiously whilst planning our September 2016 wedding in North Wales, I'm now thrilled to be a part of the team and love nothing more than getting my fill of beautifully styled weddings and couple's individual stories. After living in London for 6 years, I've now moved back North and settled in the leafy suburbs of South Manchester with my husband and much-loved pet pooch. As a Creative/Stylist working within the fashion industry, I love to immerse myself in styling and creativity, whether it's at work, finishing house renovation #2 or planning our next travels, and you'll mostly find me reading in a corner, writing or creating a moodboard (or five).

      I love writing, travelling, wandering around museums and galleries, and anything to do with history (especially the eighteenth century). When not working in marketing for heritage and the arts, I live with my husband, cats and huge amounts of books.
