At Bliss Bridal we are passionate about quality photography and curating it to its very best potential. It’s very important to us that we are true to our brand with all our features. We aim to publish a mixture of real weddings combined with styled shoots to ensure we offer our readers variety. We do have a certain aesthetic we gravitate towards and we suggest you look over some recent posts to give you an idea of what we like.
These are the types of submissions we feature:
Engagement & Anniversary shoots
How to Submit
We want to make the submission process easy for you so we’ve taken a lot of the hard work out of the process. To submit to us, simply fill out the form here. If we accept your submission we will send a link for you to upload the images and fill-out all of the vendor credits and details.
Photographers: Please ensure it is a curated selection of no more than 75 images. Please be sure to not include no more than 20 shots with actual people in them. 90% of the photos we feature are detail shots. We do not want to see full galleries. We prefer dropbox, pixieset or pass galleries (please NO google drive or individual photos).
Other Vendors: Please just send us a link from the photographer.
Brides: We strongly recommend asking your photographer to submit to us directly. You may email us with your submission at email@example.com.
We do reply to ALL submissions, however due to the high volume we receive it can take us up to 7 days to get back to you.
There is often up to a 4 month wait for a submission as our publication is only printed every 4 months. We choose our submissions based on the details of the photos as well as how may of our preferred vendors are in the submission.

A FEW NOTES
We do prefer to receive submissions from the photographer directly, however if you are not the photographer, please ensure you have permission from them before you send it through. For a real wedding please ensure the couple has also given you permission.
Please do not submit anything to us if you are still waiting to hear back from another blog/publication.
We do not accept submissions that were designed specifically for another publication and or already given permission or in a current issue of another locally owned publication. (We can publish after that current issue is off stands).
After your feature has been published in Bliss Bridal Magazine you are perfectly welcome to submit elsewhere and of course we want you to get as much exposure as possible for your beautiful work. We simply ask that any other feature is not posted until 2 months after the Bliss Bridal feature.
If your submission is not chosen at that time please do not be discouraged. There are many blogs out there that cover all different styles. It may just mean that we are not the best fit for your work at this time or that our calendar is booked up. However, we hope you will still consider us for future submissions to share with our readers. If we do not have room but love your submission, we may ask that we feature it online or in our following publication.
Please ensure there are no watermarks on your images.
We do want to ensure we have a story to go alongside our real wedding features so please ensure your couples are happy to share details with us before you submit.
