Our Policies

Our policies are designed to make sure High Gloss Weddings works well for everyone, from advertisers to our social media followers.
We’re constantly reviewing and updating our policies to ensure High Gloss Weddings is a fair and useful space for everyone.

Editorial Policy

Our editorial team is completely independent. We create content about what we like, whether those companies advertise with us or not.

We celebrate diversity. Regardless of race, sexual orientation or budget, High Gloss Weddings is an inclusive place for all couples. We love sharing different trends and decor ideas to inspire everyone.

We know that blogs, publications and lots of other media outlets are always on the lookout for great content. If you see anything you’d like to reproduce from High Gloss Weddings, please get in touch with us first.

Sponsored Content

High Gloss Weddings regularly collaborates with brands and companies that we’re happy to endorse. We never promote products or services that we don’t love ourselves.

When we work with companies to create paid-for sponsored content, we always make sure to clearly mark that it’s sponsored.

Here’s how we mark our sponsored content:

  • Social media posts are clearly marked with #ad
  • Content on the High Gloss Weddings site include terms like “Sponsored By”, “Sponsored Post”, “Partnered Post” or “Written in partnership with” in the headline or at the start of the post
  • Affiliate links are clearly marked at the bottom of each post or page

Submissions Policy

Before submitting a Real Wedding, please read our full submissions criteria.

Some of the key points to remember include:

  • For copyright reasons, submissions must be from the photographer or videographer
  • The Real Wedding images or video can’t appear anywhere else for at least three months
  • Additional information about the couple and suppliers may be required


Imagery is a really important part of what we do at High Gloss Weddings and we are very careful to correctly credit all images to photographers.

If we’ve published an images of yours that you want us to remove, please let us know.

Seen something you’d like to use on your website, publication or social media page? Please contact the photographer directly to ask permission. The photographer’s contact details are included in each post. If you can’t find them, contact us and we will pass the details on.

Affiliate links

Affiliate links on High Gloss Weddings contain our unique ID. This means companies can see that you found their website on High Gloss Weddings. These companies store a small piece of code for up to 30 days that tells them that you clicked on a High Gloss Weddings affiliate link.

If you buy anything on that site, we get a small percentage of that sale. Whether you complete your purchase immediately or wait a few weeks, we still get a share of the sale as long as it’s within 30 days.

This doesn’t cost you any more. It simply gives us a little more capacity to create quality content.

Links to External Websites

High Gloss Weddings has links to external sites in our social media and website content. We don’t have any control over external websites. That means we can’t take responsibility for the protection and privacy of any information you share on these sites. The High Gloss Weddings policies don’t extend to the external sites we link to.
