Guides for Brides has been recognised as an industry leader since our launch in 1995, and has worked with some of the biggest names around. From partnerships with shows like The National Wedding Show, BRIDES The Show and Conde Nast Traveller to media coverage in OK Magazine, Vogue and more, we have a reputation for our hard work, clear vision and excellent team.
We aim to put businesses and brides in touch with each other with the minimal cost and the highest level of professionalism for businesses, and with the minimal hassle and a friendly informative approach for brides. In all that we do strive to do very best for all our brides and customers.
Our clients have a lot in common; they are all wedding related businesses who would like to be in front of the brides that want to use their services.
We are proud to list many of the large and prestigious hotel groups and PR companies as clients as well as sole traders and artisans and we strive to meet the marketing needs of every one of them.
Our couples tend to have the same goal; they aspire to organise the most perfect wedding they can and enjoying the journey from engagement to the honeymoon.
Many are professionals with limited time and high standards and need a no-nonsense website as their main source of information.
We have a small but 100% dedicated team of 20, a third of whom have been with the company and looking out for their clients for over 10 years. We’re constantly growing and adapting to meet the demands of a changing industry, but at our core we’ve stuck to our traditional principals to help get the best for our customers and brides alike.
