Meet the team
Wedding Sparrow is inspired by organic, tangible, artisanal, natural and light wedding inspiration.
Founder Sara created Wedding Sparrow when she couldn't find the style of wedding inspiration she was looking for when planning her own wedding. Knowing that there were other like-minded brides out there who appreciated the curated, natural style of fine art weddings, Wedding Sparrow was created.
There’s a reason we’ve been voted Best Wedding Blog consecutively for the last three years, we offer the wedding industry something different. The fine art niche. Following our love for all things tangible, we also exclusively feature film photography. Our love for film shines through the quality of work we feature on the blog and we’re inspired by how many photographers, stylists, florists and artists now feel the same.
We’re here to champion authentic, inspirational wedding inspiration so if you’d like to get involved, you can submit, sponsor, create or chat with us! We’re dedicating to pushing ourselves to be the best for you so join us in the #fineartcuration...

Driven by the beauty of editorial wedding photography shot on film, Sara has sought to create the world’s first exclusively film photography wedding blog. Inspired by simplicity, beauty, originality and the complexity of nature, Wedding Sparrow has already won five industry awards since launching in 2013 and Sara couldn’t be more proud. Striving to lead the industry towards natural light and timeless beauty, Sara loves to travel the world meeting like-minded artisans who create beauty in the wedding world for Wedding Sparrow readers.

Pearl Pearl & Godiva
Our wedding world wouldn’t be half as beautiful if it was for the indelible Pearl. After creating style house Pearl & Godiva and bringing organic beauty to the forefront of the wedding industry, illicit emails danced back and forth between the creator and the curator until the most luminous partnership began between Pearl & Godiva and Wedding Sparrow. Now travelling the world together as a tour de wedding force, they style, plan and craft weddings, editorials, campaigns and workshops.

Workshops & Styling
We love the tangible here at Wedding Sparrow and find nothing more fulfilling in our work than the world to meet other like minded artists to create beauty on film. Whether it’s at a workshop in Italy, a wedding in France or an editorial in California, we can custom create, design, style, plan and speak at your event. See below for more details...
Whether it’s a film photography or a planning or styling workshop, we can offer original and timeless beauty for your attendees. Our inhouse stylists extraordinaire, Pearl & Godiva, can take you from initial idea to custom creation of editorial beauty. We’ve worked with Jen Huang, Erich McVey, Tec Petaja and more. We also attend a select few workshops each year to talk to attendees about getting published, branding, social media and networking. If travel isn't in your budget or you just need us to present to your attendees, we can also offer 'virtual workshops'. For more information email us here.
SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGEMENT
Social media can be a pretty overwhelming world full of algorithms, new platforms, hashtags and very saturated market. So how do we stand out? How do we find the time during our busy days to prioritise social media? How do we make sure we’re reaching the type of client we want and not just spam bots? Here at Wedding Sparrow, we’ve been organically growing our social media following since 2012 with a combined following of over 500,000 and an growth rate of 49.2% in the last 3 months alone*.
If you’re interested in Wedding Sparrow driving your social media platforms towards your ideal niche market of brides, we can post, tag, analyze and make sure your engagement is prioritized rather than just ‘empty’ followers.
