Exclusivity requirement:

We love to showcase new things to our readers, from real weddings to styled shoots! So to make sure we keep our content exciting we do require that any submissions remain exclusive to us until the publishing date.  This means that any submissions can not be submitted to any other blog / online or print magazine, nor can they have been featured on any other blog / online or print magazine (apart from your own businesses website if it’s a real wedding / tutorial, however we do require that any wording be rephrased so it’s not identical copy).

From time to time we may consider a non exclusive submission for our blog, however this is always subject to approval and we will require details on where the submission has previously been featured or has also been submitted to.

 

So, when will I know if my submission will be featured?

We are so excited to see new work pop into our email and dropbox and we really appreciate all the hard work and effort you’ve gone to! If we think your submission fits our readers we will contact you within 14 days from your submission date! If not, we will let you know as well, so you can submit it elsewhere!
