Founded by the babe that is Erin Balfour, Way Out Wedding (WOW) started out as a blog in 2013, with Erin writing about mostly alternative real weddings. However, her love for fashion and imagery started to lead her in a slightly different direction and she found herself focusing more on on designers’ new ranges and styled editorial shoots.
By 2018 WOW had found it’s niche, with a focus on cool, contemporary, edgy style and a desire to support & promote small businesses in the wedding industry who were killing it with their innovation and vision. This led to the launch of the WOW Edit, a deliberately small, carefully curated directory of cool wedding suppliers.
Way Out Wedding celebrates the fluidity and diversity of each and every human and strives to remove the binary from their content by writing for all abilities, races, genders, sexes and identifications, sexualities and body shapes. Loving all people, WOW wants this form of inclusive and diverse love represented throughout every inch of their brand.
