Passionate Podcaster and Editor, Annabel is the founder of Love My Dress. She lives in rural North Yorkshire in the UK with her husband and business partner Philip, their two daughters and gang of much-loved dogs. She loves photography, reading and listening to podcasts, meditation, walking, being outdoors and star gazing.
She is fierce about championing wedding industry talent and when she’s not working on Love My Dress, she supports Philip in the running of Moonwind Flowers, the family’s sustainable flower farm and floral design business.
Lyndsey is a gift from the admin Gods – a superbly organised human who is obsessed with spreadsheets and good manners.
She is the person who keeps Annabel sane when the inbox is fit to burst and everything is happening all at once. Love My Dress owes her forever!
Love My Dress is a soulful platform for weddings, founded in 2009 by me, Annabel Beeforth. In the time that has passed since, Love My Dress has become one of the most influential wedding platforms in the UK and worldwide.
More importantly for me, it has evolved as a heart-led and authentic space of integrity – one that shares beautiful wedding inspiration in a deeply considered, personal and purposeful way.
Love My Dress encourages heartfelt wedding celebrations through honest storytelling and thoughtful, uplifting, relatable content. Everything we do supports the basic foundation that every couple, from every corner of life and every culture and community, has a right to celebrate love through the rite of passage that is marriage. When our news feeds are filled with disaster and tragedy, it provides us with purpose and pleasure to be able to share love and joy on a daily basis.
Love My Dress seeks to represent a slower, more considered resource, in a world of throwaway and disposable digital content, hyper digitisation of human connection and communication, and endless screen scrolling. We empower those planning weddings to make wise and authentic choices and we take the greatest of pleasure connecting couples with talented, visionary businesses providing exceptional and creative products, services and experiences.

I personally feel a deep sense of loyalty and commitment to the British wedding industry; from tiny kitchen table startups and solo entrepreneurs to international brands and historic venues, all of whom share the same desire to help create beautiful life experiences and memories.
Love My Dress is committed to establishing a more diverse and inclusive community for those planning weddings. We are especially passionate about supporting businesses that prioritise the planet and have committed to sustainable and ethical practices.
2023 introduced important evolutionary change for Love My Dress; we hired a new development team to modernise and future proof our site, and as a result, our traffic, outbound links, page load times and domain authority have all improved. We have a brand new directory format, introduced a shop and in September 2023, we launched The Love My Dress Podcast.
Our best partnerships are always born from good old fashioned conversation. Please reach out if you’d like to chat over a cuppa. I’d love to hear from you.
