Hannah May -
Chief Features Writer


Hannah is Wed’s Chief Features Writer. Infusing her love of the southwest and writing into all things wedding that she puts her pen (or keyboard) to, Hannah regularly covers everything from relationships and bridal wear to groom’s fashion, food, entertainment and honeymoons. Always looking for a fresh spin on every aspect of weddings, Hannah’s editorial input extends across all departments both in print and online, and she is just as dedicated to the task of exploring the hippest hotels and sampling the latest spa offerings as she is to updating the website’s online listings (well, almost).

After graduating from the University of Exeter with a first in English Studies, Hannah travelled to the furthest-flung places she could before settling in her native Cornwall and into her career by writing for a film magazine (formerly run by Wed’s publishing company) while also honing her feature journalism skills through various articles for national travel magazines, online literary journals, local guides and blogs. Passionate about showcasing the best of the region’s wedding industry with a focus on creativity and individuality, Hannah writes with verve and authenticity to inform, inspire and entertain Wed’s eclectic and ever-growing readership, and is both proud and privileged to do so.
