About Us

Wedding Essentials & Essential Groom magazine was founded in October 2016 by Tracey-Anne, the owner of Essential Media, who comes with a vast amount of knowledge and experience within this industry. Our first issue was launched in October 2016, followed in 2017 & 2018. Now we are proud to announce that we will be producing a quarterly magazine every year.


The publication is put together by a small team of amazing people. The owner and publisher is head of all sales and marketing for the magazine; the designer, who brings to life the look and feel of each issue, capturing the true essence of your wedding day; our editor, who brings you up to date information on current wedding trends, helpful advice, and inspiration on all the elements one needs when planning the perfect wedding. Your ultimate wedding inspiration.
