So Why Work With A Very Curious Wedding?

A Very Curious Wedding attracts mostly UK visitors who are looking for the alternative, the pretty, the unique and simply the very best the British wedding industry has to offer. The aim of this blog is to showcase lashings of talented wedding peeps to its readers.

Having succeeded in growing a pretty successful social media following, with a Klout score of 58, its curator has a firm grasp on how to develop an online presence.

Targeting couples, A Very Curious Wedding does not solely concentrate on the bride, it publishes posts that are refreshingly non bride-to-be biased. The face of the wedding industry is changing, the days of a couple consisting exclusively of a man and a woman are long gone. There are also far more grooms seeking to have a say in their day. A Very Curious Wedding understands these changes, and is written in a way that is appealing to every couple and both genders.

Topics covered by A Very Curious Wedding

A Very Curious Wedding offers its readers a plethora of posts containing sound planning advice, wedding themes, real weddings, and of course the best of British. All nicely interspersed with mood boards, DIY projects and Steampunk with my curious life thrown in for good measure.

The launch of EAT ME, a business area specifically aimed at wedding industry specialist, has garnered a great deal of interest among the wedding community.

Sponsored posts

I only accept sponsored posts from brands who allow me to have complete content control, and I must write the post myself. In accordance with Google’s guide on link schemes, all links within a sponsored post, without exception, will be “no follow”. In the interest of full disclosure, all sponsored posts will contain the sentence – in collaboration with (your brand/service name). If you are interested in contributing a sponsored post then please do contact me.

Complimentary products / services

If you are a brand and would like to send a PR sample to A Very Curious Wedding for review consideration, then please contact me. The feature of products/services does incur a charge* if a guaranteed, timely post is required.

Although I am happy to consider gifts/PR samples of products/services for free review, gifting a product/service does not guarantee a review. All reviews will be completely unbiased, 100% my own opinion and (in the case of free reviews) I reserve the right to choose how, when and where the product is featured on A Very Curious Wedding.

All posts that contain products/services which have been gifted will be marked with “c/o” (courtesy of) and will include a “no follow” link to your website.

Please note: any item sent to A Very Curious Wedding for review will be non-returnable.

Prize giveaways

I am happy to consider the hosting of prize giveaways. However, the value of the prize must be a minimum of £50. I do charge a fee* for hosting a giveaway, but I do offer a Medium Ad as part of the package.

Please do note: the purchase of  Medium Ad does not guarantee the hosting of a giveaway.

Real weddings / styled shoots

There is absolutely no charge to either couples or photographers for the feature of real weddings or styled shoots. If you have a wedding/styled shoot that you would like to submit for approval, please use the form on my Submissions Page.

*As a fan of small British wedding businesses, I do sometimes make exceptions and offer free review features and the free hosting of giveaways. If you are a new wedding business, a start-up, a young entrepreneur or an independent label (e.g. ETSY) then please do get in touch. I am passionate about supporting new and young British wedding businesses, so do not hesitate to contact me.
