Real Bride Submissions

Home Grown Style

At Bridal Bible, real brides are vital to us, as these are the style icons that we all truly relate to. We firmly believe that you don’t have to leave Ireland’s shores to find amazing style and inspiration.

We love to receive pictures of real brides for use in our Irish Brides gown search and for entry into our Bride of the Month competition.

If you’re a bride or a photographer and you’d like to submit some professional real bride images, we’d be delighted to receive them. Read on for details on how to make a submission...

Image criteria

The wedding gown featured in the image must have been purchased in Ireland or online with Ireland delivery.
  • Please send up to 10 images in jpg format in one zip file to (The zip file should be less than 5Mb in size.)
  • When choosing your images to send, please include a full length image of the bride on her own (showcasing the gown as much as possible), along with images of the couple, venue, detailed shots and other images you feel portray the uniqueness of the gown.
  • Please send details of the couple including their name and location of the shoot and details for the gown designer and boutique.
  • Please note that we can only use professional photographs on the site so if you’re not a photographer, we would ask that you contact your photographer and arrange to have the professional images sent to us or to you for sending on to us.
  • Where you are a photographer, although you as the photographer own copyright to your images, we will only accept submissions in cases where the couple have given full permission to have their images featured on Bridal Bible.

Following selection

If your images are selected we will contact you with further details.

We will advise (approximately) as to when the shoot will be featured on Bridal Bible and we may require some additional details. We will provide you details on how to upload the images to. We would ask that most of the images be in colour.

Each image must be at least 1,000 pixels wide, and we reserve the right to crop them. All watermarks should be removed.

We ask that the chosen wedding or engagement shoot has not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere, apart from your own blog (if you’re a photogrpaher). If you have submitted it elsewhere, please let us know.
