As a trained journalist and former BBC reporter and newsreader, I combine my journalistic skills and vast wedding industry knowledge to write and talk about weddings on a wider media platform.

Some of the topics I can talk/write extensively about are;

  • Being a mindful bride (starting the wedding planning journey with the right mindset)
  • Why wedding weight-loss is unnecessary and unhealthy
  • Why we need to stop releasing balloons/Chinese lanterns at weddings
  • Why butterfly releases cause more harm than good
  • Why couples need to have a selfish mindset when planning their weddings
  • How to get married as a feminist
  • Why weddings are full of patriarchal, misogynistic undertones and what can be done to change this
  • Why heterosexual couples have a lot to learn from gay couples when it comes to getting married
  • Why too much emphasis is put on getting married and not enough on being married

As well as writing for my own blog, for the last four years I have also been a contributor and writer for Spain and Gibraltar’s leading wedding resource – Confeti Magazine. Please see a selection of my work below. Just click on the image to see the full article.
