Free Styling Training from Once Wed + Joy Thigpen

Here at Once Wed we receive thousands of submission for publication every year. We run less than 1 per cent of them.

In providing feedback on submissions, I found we were answering many of the same types of questions each time. The most common question is

“How do I capture the kinds of weddings and editorials I see featured on Once Wed?”

There are a few traits that are common among the work of photographers, stylists and other wedding professionals whose work you see published on our site.

To help you hone some of these techniques yourself, Joy Thigpen and I have created a comprehensive new online course, Wedding Styling 101, which speaks to the foundations of styling and art direction. Ahead of our official launch next week, we are offering a free online 3-part mini training series when you sign up for our new mailing list.

To join, just CLICK HERE and enter your email address to receive the course!

We’ll be sharing more news about our upcoming course for wedding professionals on Instagram so follow along with the hashtag #weddingstyling101.


Once Wed was launched in March 2008 to meet a need in the marketplace for an online listing service for second-hand wedding dresses. Within a short time, the company had developed into an online wedding publication and resource to provide newly-engaged brides with inspiration and tools to plan their dream wedding.
