A few words about me & why I started a wedding blog, for fun!
What you need to know about me, is that I love weddings. And what’s not to love? It’s that big day a large subsection of women (and men) dream about all of their lives. A day of celebration, of love, and an excuse to have a party that is all about you! You get to wear a ridiculous dress that in any other situation would look crazy. Have your favourite food prepared for you. Hire a DJ or band to play all your favourite songs, and expect everyone to dance to them. Weddings are the best!
These days, weddings are even more than that. They are an opportunity to share our personal style and to celebrate with the people who matter the most. The preconceptions of what a wedding must be like are disappearing and with that, brides are now feeling free to express themselves honestly. And not pretend to be a princess for the day if they just don’t want to. This modern bridal ethos is what I love.
So, about me. I’m Andy and I worked for many years for a big bridal company as a press officer, social media guy and writer. The job just happened, I fell into it but grew to love being immersed in the wedding world. To keep my energy for the industry alive, I decided to go freelance and work exclusively for small businesses, helping them out with their websites, social media and SEO. It’s a job I love, and I work for people that I genuinely like and care for. Something not everyone can say.
I started Love Letters & Peonies as a way to write more freely about things in the wedding industry I really love, free from constraint. Bridal gowns that float my boat, honeymoons I can only dream of going on, and wedding planning advice I’ve picked up through the years. No filter and no mediation.
This wedding blog is for me, but really it is for you. It’s for those of you who sit there reading and scrolling with a rock on your finger, desperate for wedding inspiration. So take these ideas and turn them into big day reality.
