Vancouver Island Style Shoots & Content

Over the past 14 years, the team at The Ring has interviewed well over 1000 wedding experts across Canada, published 33 all-things-local wedding magazines in 2 provinces while producing roughly 45+ Wedding Expo events at which we connected 600+ exhibitors with 11,000+ local couples (and their entourages).

Throughout all of our wedding industry adventures, one the most common questions we are asked by wedding experts is still; How to I get my company featured in your magazine?

  1. Become a client  The magazine prioritizes editorial space for Wedding Ring clients before all others. Client campaigns range from $750 to $1750+ and include both content marketing pages and display ads in each magazine, depending which campaign you choose.
  2. Buy a one-off content page ♥ It’s $750 for a full page, full colour content piece that’s all about you. You won’t get a price like that anywhere else in a magazine that has real circulation within your target area. You will have the choice of using your page for a Design Palette, a Reality Wedding Story, a trend/topic gallery, an Expert Tip or something equally fabulous that we dream up together.
  3. Buy several pages for a style shoot ♥ Team up with 6 to 8 of your most loved wedding experts (gowns, photography, venue, flowers, accessories, hair, makeup, stationery, props & rentals, and more), book 2 or 3 pages (750ea) and split the cost. This usually averages out to be about $250/client. One person coordinates the shoot and handles payment and shoot details, collaborating directly with our BC Fashion Editor, Aisling Goodman.
  4. Submit your work (story, photos, some details) to the team ♥ Submit your favourite story to Aisling via email.
  5. Don’t scoop yourself ♥ If you’ve already shared your photos and story across Facebook and Twitter, we tend to avoid re-publishing.
  6. Get local ♥ Try to incorporate as many truly local wedding businesses as you can in your content or style shoot.
