Competition: Become Our Next Blogger

One of the best things I love about running Cwtch The Bride is giving awesome people a platform to share their thoughts and ideas on weddings. This isn’t restricted to professional writers. I for one take pictures for a living and only got a ‘C Grade’ in GCSE English. This blog is for everyone. It’s a place for brides, grooms, family members and friends to flock to for advice, inspiration and a bit of a nudge to get organised. Would you like to become our next blogger?

As we enter our seventh year of blogging (yes… 7 years!! wow!) We are thrilled to be creating another opportunity for 5 new brides/grooms-to-be to join our team and share their wedding journey with us. We want to hear YOUR STORY. Cwtch The Bride is a safe place to share your excitement, worries and thoughts surrounded by a team of people that are here to help. We’re like bridesmaids.. but not actual bridesmaids hahaha.

Our ‘boobless bride’ Dawn became a Cwtch blogger a few yrs ago, her unique story went viral in the international press and I’m so proud of her. What I love most though is that we’re now the best of friends because of this competition.

When Charlie met Hannah, both were clients of mine. Their friendship developed after I photographed both their weddings. They went on to set up their own photography business together and appear to be doing really well.

You see, joining our team is not just about writing. Friendships form and businesses even start! What are you waiting for? Get in touch :)

We’d love to hear from you! Have a go at filling out the form below. It’s really easy and I’d love to hear from you , Maria (creator of Cwtch The Bride).
