FANCY A FEATURE?

We accept real wedding, engagement and styled shoot submissions from photographers, industry suppliers and newlyweds that will excite and inspire our readers.

STYLING

Submissions should be a good fit for Brides Up North’s individual style and so we particularly favour those that are elegant, glamorous and pretty as well as fresh, fashion-forward and innovative – it’s always nice to see couples and creatives thinking a little outside the bridal box!

DIVERSITY

Brides Up North Ltd is committed to diversity and inclusivity. We encourage submissions that represent anyone and everyone, but we would like to actively invite minority groups to use our platform in order to better represent a fuller spectrum of our society. Thank you for your patience and support whilst we work towards this commitment.

COVID-19 SECURITY

Please note that for any work produced since March 2020, this must have been carried out in accordance with the relevant COVID-19 guidance at the time in order to be able to be featured.

EXCLUSIVITY

In order to give Brides Up North the exclusivity on any submission, we ask that the wedding/shoot hasn’t been submitted to/published on any other wedding blogs beforehand (excluding photographer/supplier websites) and, where accepted, that it is not submitted elsewhere until 2 calendar months after appearing on our blog.

TIMESCALES

We carefully review all submissions and endeavour to reply within seven working days. Unfortunately, due to the high level of submissions that we receive it is with regret that we are unable to accept every wedding and shoot that we are sent. Whilst every wedding is beautiful, we recognise that our readers require a variety of quality editorial content. Where successful we will reply with further details of the information and images that we require to complete the submission. In the case that the submission is unsuccessful, please don’t be disheartened, this can be for a number of reasons. We will try to feedback details in our email but during busy periods this may not be possible.

PROFESSIONAL IMAGES

Finally, submissions must be accompanied by images/footage from a professional photographer and/or videographer.

The Fine Print

As standard, copyright remains with the original author of the images and so please seek the photographer’s permission when making a submission. Whilst we do accept submissions from photographers and other vendors, if you are not the bride or groom you will also need to seek their permission before making a real wedding or engagement shoot submission.
