Hello Lovelies! Today we’re joined by fellow wedding blogger Eleni Balkouli of Love4Wed! Enjoy:
How did you get into wedding blogging?
I have always been in love in anything and everything that was associated with weddings. I could literally spend hours looking at wedding dresses, talking about wedding decoration details and amazing new wedding ideas I discovered on pinterest… not to mention I am always the one the cries at weddings! I guess in it was only natural for me that someday I would make my way into the wedding world. It was just meant to be… After my graduate studies in the US and years of working in the hotel management industry, when I returned to Greece I quickly realized that there was not really a “place” online for Greek brides to find inspiration, true stylish inspiration. I was accustomed to the gorgeous weddings blogs that were so popular at that time in the US and I found a huge gap in Greece. I decided to create a beautiful space that would feature all the prettiness and all the gorgeous work of the amazingly talented wedding professionals in Greece. The Greek wedding blog Love4Weddings gained the acceptance of Greek-brides-to-be and professionals immediately and in a short period of time I realized that we needed to share all the wonderfulness that was created in Greece, all the gorgeous weddings on the Greek islands with the rest of the world… and that was the beginning of Love4Wed. A chic & stylish destination wedding blog that I am truly passionate about. I must say, even though running a wedding blog is a tough job (perhaps the most demanding job I have ever had!), when I am writing about how the groom proposed to the bride, or when I watch romantic wedding videos I am planning to feature or even when I am going through endless gorgeous wedding photos… I am in heaven and it is the best job in the world!
