//THIS IS MODERN ROMANCE//
Hello! My name is Erin and I run Way Out Wedding, a style and fashion-led blog to inspire alternative and modern lovers planning their big day. With the emphasis on showcasing the skills of industry suppliers via the medium of styled shoots (some submitted, some creatively directed by me), Way Out Wedding brings you mostly visual inspiration.
I have a strong ethic of only featuring vendors with excellent reputations and standing within the wedding industry, and where bridal beauty posts are concerned only bringing you cruelty-free products. I also only feature sponsored content that I truly believe in and feel will benefit my readers. I’m really choosy about who I feature.
The reader and their whole journey of getting married matters more to me than anything, and it’s a real joy to inspire you and also support wedding industry vendors who go the extra mile.
The blog’s motto is //THIS IS MODERN ROMANCE// and it strives to inspire those getting married that they can wander off the beaten path as much or as little as they please – it’s all good.
With a background in magazine, web and book publishing, with a dash of events (including an art exhibition at County Hall, London – so proud of that one!), marketing and business analysis for good measure, I now blog part-time around my family life.
Dreams for the blog
I’ve been a magazine junkie for ever. I’ve always loved holding the glossy, print-scented pages in my hands, something physical for the senses, and I hope to bring Way Out Wedding to print as well as digital in the forms of a coffee table book, a series of look books, and a magazine. I want to bring these stories and images from the blog off the screen and into your hands as something tangible that you can enjoy over and over again.
And thanks to the styled shoots I’ve created, and a slight eBay addiction, I now have some amazing vintage and retro wedding dresses and accessories that are going to be listed in my shop under the label No Debutante.
Finally, I am in the throes of compiling some newsletters with exclusive content, discounts, expert advice and giveaways, and these will be launched soon! If you would like to be added to the mailing list, just drop me a line.
