Chitter Chatter is a series I’m running all about inspirational women in the wedding industry whom I greatly admire. These women successfully combine running their own business with married life and, in a lot of cases, raising a young family. The ‘Chitter Chatter’ twist is is they have to answer my questions in just 140 characters or less….
Today I’m chitter chattering to Marina Licht who I had the pleasure of meeting last October at the Wedding Blog Awards. Marina is the founder and editor of fashion bridal blog, Style & The Bride, and hostess of this week’s snazziest wedding industry do at her Style & The Bride new site launch party that took place on Tuesday.
She tells me all about attending Victoria and David Beckham’s wedding (yes really!), editing Cosmopolitan Bride for five years (quite the background for a wedding blogger, huh?) and her secret talent for tongue twisters…
What was your first job?
My first job was as an editorial assistant on OK! Magazine. I used to spend my days photocopying, and was constantly thinking of ideas to get my name into print.
Tell me more about your career before launching Style & The Bride
I started my career on OK! Magazine and got my first taste for weddings when I attended the wedding of Victoria and David Beckham. I went on to become the Editor of Cosmopolitan Bride for five years (and was Natmags, now Hearst’s) youngest Editor at the time.
What made you start Style & The Bride?
I believed there was a gap in the market for an upscale bridal blog aimed at the fashionable/stylish bride.
