Have an amazing Catholic wedding or engagement session that you'd like featured on Spoken Bride? We'd love to hear from you!

Weddings

  • Wedding submissions should be highly detailed and take place in a Catholic church. We want to see cakes, centerpieces, invitations, decorated getaway cars and all the little details that go into making each wedding unique! Most importantly, we want to see the Mass! Be sure to include photos that capture the whole day — everything from the bride getting ready to the couple's first look to their grand exit.
  • Submit 50-60 professional images, sized accordingly. Images should be at least 1000px wide. 
  • Images may not include watermarks.
  • All images must be uploaded to a Dropbox folder (or similar professional photography service such as PASS, Pixieset, etc), and the link must be included. Please do not send zip files or Facebook albums. We will not be able to open a zip file or Dropbox link that requires our downloading images in order to review your submission.
  • Please also let us know in advance if your submission has been featured elsewhere. 
  • We accept submissions from brides and wedding planners, so long as you have the photographer's permission.
  • Once your images have been featured, we encourage you to utilize our badge on your site.   

Engagement Sessions

The Word, Christ himself, became flesh and dwelt among us, and so in marriage do words become incarnate. It all starts with these four: "Will You Marry Me?"

The Spoken Bride How He Asked series gives voice to your words; your story. Proposal submissions should include:

  • A brief testimony and account of your proposal. Tell us: How you met, what your discernment journey and call to marry each other was like, the background and details of the proposal, and what surprises and pieces of wisdom have been borne of your engagement. 
  • Optional: 15-25 professional proposal or engagement shoot images, sized accordingly. 

Guidelines:

  • Storytelling and input from the groom is ideal.
  • Submissions should be between 500 and 1,200 words.
  • Images should be at least 100px wide. 
  • Images may not include watermarks.
  • All images must be uploaded to a Dropbox folder (or similar service such as PASS, or Pixieset), and the link must be included. Please do not send zip files or Facebook albums. We will not be able to open a zip file or Dropbox link that requires our downloading images in order to review your submission.
  • Submissions should include links to the shoot venue and participating vendors (photography, makeup, hair, etc.)
