Annabel Beeforth - Blogtacular

Annabel Beeforth

Blogger - Love My Dress®
Creative Genius Bar

Annabel Beeforth started blogging after she got married in 2009. In the five and a half years since, she has developed a thriving, multi-award winning small business with a 6 figure turnover. Through beautifully curated and thoughtfully written content, Annabel now seeks to inspire her readers with her personal selection of weddings, discussion posts and a daily reminder of the value of marriage.

In 2011, Annabel left behind her job as Principal Administrator at a North East University to focus on expanding her blog, which she now earns a full time living through, alongside various speaking engagements around the world.

Love My Dress® is now a leading UK and International wedding blog attracting visitors from all over the globe, and with a combined social media follower number heading towards 600k. It is widely considered the blog of choice by designers choosing to launch their new collections and promote their brand to stylish brides.

Considered by Elle Magazine as one of the world’s top five wedding blogs, Annabel has also used her influence to help raise £40k for Oxfam Weddings and highlight issues in the wedding industry that are considered taboo by more traditional print media (racial diversity, physical disability for example). This approach has earned her the respect of nearly 200k unique visitors who visit her blog every month.

Annabel is supported in running the blog by an administrator, copywriter, designer/developer and 10 copywriters. Her first book, Style Me Vintage Weddings (Anova Books) was released in April 2013 and continues to be a top selling weddings book.

Annabel lives in Whitby with her husband and business partner Philip, and two daughters, Eska Eleanor and Leanora Rose.

Annabel will be in the Creative Genius Bar throughout the afternoon of Blogtacular taking your questions on blogging, business and everything inbetween.

  • We love to showcase indie business at Blogtacular and give them the same space opportunity as big brands to connect with bloggers at conferences. You’ve met the goody bag contributors and now let me introduce our 2018 Market Place! We were joined by five indies all of whom were showing and selling their products at the conference. The whole space was buzzing with Yuk Fun, Notes Beauty, The Fabric Fox, South Island Art and Capture by Lucy Backdrops all showing at the conference. #blogtacular
  • We pride ourselves on how smoothly Blogtacular runs and it wouldn’t be possible without this team of wonderful people. Dora has been working with us over the last couple of months to plan the event, Sarah & Claudia have been with us since the very first event streamlining the customer experience and operations, Momtaz & Natasha joined us for a second year to host rooms alongside Alex who took on our third room this year and Hannah joined the ops team alongside Mr Kat to make sure everything was where it was meant to be. We are so grateful to our team for giving up their time, energy and ideas to make our conference the best it can be. #blogtacular
  • Holy moly - what an incredible event! We filled two days with colour, fun, friendship and so much learning. Huge thanks to everyone who came to the conference and everyone who worked so hard to make it a truly exceptional event. You really are what gives Blogtacular its spirit and the reason we’ve loved every minute of all five conferences. Over the next few days we’ll be sharing moments from the conference and some exciting news for future events but for now, we’re going to bask in the happy glow of your positive energy! #blogtacular .
