About me

Gaia Hudson - Brides Keeping it Real

Hi I’m Gaia! I’m a mum of two little ones and a Marketing Consultant living in glorious County Durham in North East England. I got married to a great guy 9 years ago in the wilds of Northumberland.

Whilst I loved planning my wedding I really struggled to find great online resources and good value local suppliers when it came to organising it. It can be overwhelming as there’s so much to do. There’s plenty of inspiration out there on Pinterest and Instagram but if you’re on a budget or just want a personal wedding it’s not always easy to know how to get all the many jobs done when planning the happiest day of your life!

About Brides Keeping it Real

I wanted to create a community where you can find inspiration through some great images but also lots of info on how to get sh*t done for your wedding!

I’m married to Andy, a wedding photographer who created Photographers Keeping it Real – a worldwide community of the best documentary wedding photographers. Through them we have access to the best suppliers, hot new trends, and all the tips and tricks you need to help you plan your perfect wedding day!

Brides Keeping It Real is the ultimate resource for the bride-to-be who likes to do things differently – packed with useful inspiration, clever Bride Hacks and our specially selected wedding supplier directory.
