Adelaide wedding blog The Wedding Gurus goes global
January 14, 2013
YASMIN Eyre and her aunt Susan Gallina are helping brides from around the world plan their weddings, all from the comfort of their northern suburbs homes.
The self-confessed "wedding-obsessed" duo started their blog, The Wedding Gurus, in August 2011.
It is now viewed by more than 13,000 people a month from more than 152 countries.
Since launching the blog, Miss Eyre has quit her job as a travel agent to focus on the blog and her home-based wedding hire business, A Moment in Time.
"I can't believe people from all over the world the UK, the USA, the Philippines, South Africa and Pakistan are looking at our blog," Miss Eyre, of Parafield Gardens, said.
"We've had 110,000 views in the past 12 months - it's mind-boggling."
The blog offers advice on everything from wedding song choices and honeymoon destinations to wedding dresses and the latest ceremony trends. Miss Eyre, who is getting married in November, said the pair spent about 10 hours a week each on the blog, writing posts about all things weddings and answering questions from brides-to-be.
"I'm dying to get on to our blog everyday ... I'm practically running to the computer every morning to see how many views we've had."
Salisbury Business and Export Centre economic development manager Greg Ratsch said anecdotally the number of people starting businesses from home was on the rise, although there were no exact figures available.
"We are seeing a lot more people starting up home businesses and blogs because it's convenient for people and they don't need a physical presence," Mr Ratsch said.
Mrs Gallina is a mother of three and also a civil marriage celebrant.
She juggles the blog with working part-time in legal aid and is studying a Bachelor of Writing and Communications.
"I had a big fat Italian wedding and the whole process was so amazing that I wanted to be involved in everyone's," Mrs Gallina, of Salisbury, said.
"It has become an obsession.
"Sometimes I'll be lying in bed and I'll have this amazing idea for a post and I just have to call Yasmin at midnight to tell her."
The pair hope to publish a book based on one of their blog posts about 52 wedding rituals from around the world.
