In 2010, I started planning my own wedding. I had never been one of those girls who had dreamed of the big day in all its intricate detail. I hadn’t been secretly hoarding wedding magazines before I was even engaged. Yet, as soon as the planning began, I became completely enraptured with everything to do with the day. I realised the modern bride has so much choice and opportunity to do what they want with their wedding whether they’re on a shoestring or about to spend their life savings.
And so, I created moodboards. I turned to fashion, design and gardening magazines as well as bridal ones. I spoke with friends and family. I looked around me. I discovered the many fantastic spots online – like Tumblr, and other wedding blogs.
My now husband and I were fortunate with our wedding. We had space and time to plan, and through my research I was full of ideas. We found good suppliers who could fulfill them. We had a magical day.
I have come to realise not everyone is in the same position, and so theweddinghunter was conceived. I wanted to create a site that could offer some help in the only way I know how – a hybrid of neat categorisation (when planning weddings it’s best to initiate a love affair with a spreadsheet) mixed with a mildly sardonic tone and bright visuals. The site is not focused on a particular niche of bride but looks to offer inspiration across the spectrum, from broad themes, to specific items. It is UK centric in terms of suppliers, although the ideas could translate elsewhere.
I’m here to help and, like Jim’ll Fix It (RIP) if you could use some inspiration items hunted, just get in touch.
Happy hunting …
