Meet ‘Editor’ Marcela


Tell us about yourself and why you co-founded One Stylish Bride: I love all things pretty – which includes weddings, photography, flowers, fashion, cakes, crafts, styling and decor. I also love wedding planning, writing and editing.

It’s these loves that lead me to this role and business. And boy am I lucky, because I love the process of helping brides plan their weddings, searching for fabulous wedding inspiration, the process of editing content, writing posts, and going through all the gorgeous submissions.

When I’m not working as the Editor here at One Stylish Bride, I’m usually being active, hunting for treasures at the markets, meeting up for coffee with friends, reading a book, or catching up on all of my favourite blogs.

What have been your greatest achievements with One Stylish Bride: Growing and developing the site. We now receive over 2 million page views per month.

Also, 2011 led us to receive an honourable mention as young entrepreneurs by Anthill’s 30 under 30 Entrepreneurs, which was a lovely surprise.

We were also very flattered to be featured in the June 2011 issue of Cleo magazine as the “wedding expert” in an article titled “Wedding Gurus”.

What’s your favourite wedding theme: I love the vintage wedding theme and the idea that old items can become new again with this theme.

What’s your favourite colour combination: I adore a simple black and white colour combination. But I’m also currently smitten with pastel colour combinations because they’re so delicate and romantic.

What’s your favourite wedding flower: Pretty peonies! But I also love roses and carnations because they’re vibrant, chic, and beautiful all at the same time.

What’s your favourite honeymoon destination: Parie the city of love or breathtaking Bora Bora.
