Welcome to my blog!
Style & the Bride was launched in 2013 by leading bridal journalist Marina Licht who got her first taste for weddings when she was a junior reporter at OK! Magazine. She was the envy of all of her contemporaries when she covered the wedding of one of the world’s A-list couples, Victoria and David Beckham.
Marina didn’t realise it at the time, but the wedding of Victoria and David Beckham first ignited her passion for the world of weddings.
After leaving OK! Magazine, Marina worked as a feature writer on Cosmopolitan Bride magazine, and after a rapid rise through the ranks, was made the youngest editor at the National Magazine Company (now Hearst) at the tender age of 26. She has also worked at Wedding magazine and written for the likes of Red, Cosmo, and The Sunday Express.
Marina is regularly asked to speak at top bridal shows and events, and recently spoke at a bridal seminar with other high profile individuals at The London Bridal Show.
Beautiful, stylish weddings are one of Marina’s passions and Style & the Bride has given her a
platform from which to share her passion with you. Marina’s address book is literally bursting with contact details for the industries leading photographers, dress designers, florists, hairdressers, make-up artists, wedding planners, wedding venues and honeymoon experts and she is delighted to be able to share them with you all if you are about to plan your big day!
Marina is passionate both about the British and International Wedding industry and loves discovering new talent as well as showcasing individuals who have been part of the establishment for years.
Style & the Bride proved to be an instant hit and in 2013 just months after launching Marina was ‘Highly Commended’ as Best Wedding Newcomer in Wedding magazine’s blog awards.
This early success along with steadily increasing visitor numbers has more recently encouraged Marina to embark on a program of investment in to the site which includes a total design makeover along with a number of new sections covering subjects such as bridal beauty, venues, grooms, first nights and honeymoons.
We are also delighted that a number of other writers and bloggers have joined our team meaning we’ll be posting new content several times daily.
