What Hanson & Hopewell have been up to

The past few months for Hanson & Hopewell have been super hectic. We can’t believe we’ve crammed so much into the first quarter of the year, from refreshing our bride to be box photography, launching our #BridesmaidBible blog and even pitching our business to a host of different retailers so that you can get your hands on our bride to be boxes in a wider variety of places. As such, we thought it’d be a good idea to wrap exactly what we’ve been up to in a glorious new blog post to share all of our positive news!

Hanson & Hopewell new stockists

The biggest news this month, which we’re super excited to share, is that you can now buy our bride-to-be boxes at UK retail heaven websites, Notonthehighstreet.com and Getting Personal, as well as bridal marketplaces Mission Tie the Knot, Love & Lilah and through Etsy too. We’re so proud that these well known brands love what we’re doing, want to stock all of our bride-to-be boxes and essentially help a small independent business grow. We hope you will join us for the ride and push us up their search rankings! ;-) You can take a look at each shop by clicking the images below.

Our new photography

I’m a massive fan big fan of taking photographs, ever since ‘Papa’ Singleton introduced me to his dark room in my childhood, where we would develop the negatives of the shots he’d taken using real film that day. I was able to treat myself to a Panasonic Lumix camera back in 2010, and since then I’ve not looked back and to perfect my skills at every opportunity, whether that’s for an event for friends, to create lasting memories on holiday or to take keepsakes of our new puppy Pickles to show how she’s growing up. My new Leica lens has helped transform our bride-to-be box photography to another level and I’m super pleased at how they look and so are our new retail partners.

We’re also proud to say that the majority of the photography you see across our website, blog and social channels have either been taken by us or have been taken of us or our friends at special events like our weddings. Hanson & Hopewell is very much an extension of who we are and we’re excited to share a window into our lives, whether it’s the smoked salmon blinis we had for breakfast (well, we did once, but we were planning for 2017, so needed that extra boost of energy!) the beautiful bunch of flowers that one of our husband’s has treated us to, or a shot of my bridesmaids unwrapping their wonderful gifts on my wedding day in 2014. We love to hear your thoughts and comments, so please do follow us on our Instagram, Facebook and Twitter channels.

The #BridesmaidBible Blog

Hooray! We launched our #BridesmaidBible blog back in January, promising to publish every week on a Thursday to provide some bride and bridesmaid tips and advice and hopefully some inspiration, based on our own personal bride and bridesmaid experiences. So far we’ve introduced some of the wonderful partners that we’ve curated for our bride-to-be boxes, our top engagement gift ideas for 2017 as well as an incredible look into Hanson’s recent wedding day and honeymoon to Cambodia. Take a read of our latest blog posts, let us know what you think?
