Hiya! I'm Ellie, your very own Managing Editor - eeeep! So, what do you want to know?
I'm a maker. I make things - I absolutely adore craftiness, frequently trying my hand at whatever projects I find on Pinterest. These range from tassel cushions, teabags and one ingredient ice cream to elaborate kimonos, floral hanging backdrops and paper roses. Along with the rest of the world, I’m attempting to perfect the macaron—when that day comes, I’ll be a very content girl. Up until that day, I’ll continue to eat the mixture. I also want to visit the world, and own a townhouse filled with neon pink lit-up words.
I like to make people happy. My ultimate dream is to become a wedding planner, curating days as stunning and unique as the couple they belong to. Why wouldn’t you want to be a part of the best day of someone’s life? Alongside my role at And so to Wed I work for Pamella Dunn, an exceptional wedding planner and stylist based in Leeds, who’s given me the opportunity to essentially live out my dream day-to-day, both on site and administratively. I also work for A Most Curious Wedding Fair, the coolest wedding show in the country. Heeeeeeell yeah!
I want to make dreams come true. I’m overwhelmed on a daily basis by the creativity and ingenuity of brides and grooms. Everything from your colour scheme to flowers to entertainment to venue can be made personal, and it’s my favourite part of my job is to see what couples create. It’s a bit like gift-giving (my other life passion), and seeing their happy faces when they tear through the paper and see what they’ve always dreamed of. Weddings are all about making the days a perfect reflection of the couple, and that’s why I joined And so to Wed – it’s an amazing community for brides and grooms to find suppliers who’ll do anything they can to give them exactly what they want. Becoming managing editor has been an honour - the good ship And So To Wed is a labour of love that I am so, so grateful to be on board with. I'll be bringing you amazing suppliers, shoots, DIY projects and inspiration on a daily basis - hopefully that will make you guys as happy as it makes me!
