Submit Your Shoot & Real Wedding Content
We are so please you are interested in submitting your Supplier Collaboration Shoot & Real Wedding Content to us! As well as the photos, we want to give readers an insight into your inspiration and concept behind the shoot as well as the story of the suppliers that worked so hard to put it all together!
We are ‘wedding supplier centric’ blog, so we want to do everything in our power to fully promote and publicise the amazing work you do, so please don’t forget behind the scenes shots of all the suppliers involved on the day!
WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
When we think of the term ‘Boho’ in the broadest sense, our business definition is ‘Bohemian – The Wanderer, The Trailblazer, The Adventurer’. So we want wedding and shoot submissions that represent this and everywhere in between! Fun, exciting, adventurous, playful and full of love! Whether that be; a colourful outdoorsy festival vibe, a sleek boho luxe style, a rustic DIY personalised day, or an edgy alternative feel, we are open to new and innovative wedding styling with a free spirited twist!
We are always on the look out for stories that represent all couples from across the beautiful spectrum of humanity, from all groups of society that are celebrating the love they have for one another. All with the aim of empowering brides to be on their wedding planning journey, to love who they are, what they stand for and to be confident to push forward and get the wedding day they REALLY want.
Our mission is to create a Boho Wedding Scene that is truly inclusive, and actively promotes diversity of humanity, and we want to impact this through the content we through promote through our blog and social platforms.
We usually feature between 60-80 images professionally taken images per wedding or shoot so ask for a submission of around 100 images to choose from. The images must tell the story of the day with a mixture of portrait and landscape in colour.
We avoid over processed and filtered images and as well as images of the couple throughout the day, we want to see as much of the details as possible (table set ups/ florals/ table plans/ games/ cakes etc).
SIZE OF THE IMAGES
No smaller than 1000px, ideally around 2000/3000px and ask to receive the full submission via Dropbox or WeTransfer.
EXCLUSIVITY NOT NECESSARY
We don’t worry that your wedding or shoot has been featured anywhere before us, as we want to showcase the beautiful ‘boho inspired’ day that you created regardless. We also put our own spin on the write up and big up the couple and suppliers that put in all the hard work to create such a special day.
However, we do ask that from the date of your feature on our website blog, a 6 week exclusivity window is honoured, before you can then share it on any other public blog. This ensures that we aren’t duplicating content across any of our online platforms across the UK.
SUBMIT A SAMPLE
If this description gets you excited and you would like to submit your content, we first ask for a shoot sample to be sent to use to check your content aligns to our brand.
You can either send me a link of the shoot or wedding if it is published on your personal social media, or you can email me at email@example.com
10-20 low resolution images and an overview of the real wedding or shoot. I aim to get back to you within 24 hours to let you know either a way if your submission is successful or not. If successful I will email you with details to send your full submission to us and details of our publish league time.
SPOTLIGHT ON SUPPLIERS
As part of your submission, we ask for ‘behind the scenes’ photos and videos or you all at work on the day of the shoot, so don’t forget to include these! If an additional photographer needs to be credited, please also include their details.
OUR RESPONSIBILITY AS WEDDING TREND CREATORS
As people of influence within our wedding specialisms, we all have a responsibility to make the wedding industry a more inclusive place for all. Here at The Boho Bride Guide we encourage the representation of all groups when contributing to styled shoots, especially underrepresented groups.
If each of us has a conscious thought about the inclusivity of the visual work we create and the language we use both written and spoken, we can work towards making that change together!
