I applied for hundreds of jobs and fell into this amazing industry!

What do you love most about what you do?

Being involved in the most important day of a woman’s life and seeing how happy I make people on a daily basis, it’ s such an amazing feeling.

Does the responsibility of your job ever scare you?

The pressure makes me work even harder to achieve perfection for my customers.

How much contact do you have with a couple before their wedding day?

It all depends on the bride, usually quite a lot as we build up lovey relationships and I like to know that they are 100% happy with everything before the big day.

Happy Birthday To Our Cover Girl Nina Blakemore

Happy Birthday To Our Cover Girl Nina Blakemore

Happy Birthday Nina!

Happy Birthday to our first ever cover girl, the amazingly beautiful Nina Blakemore. A Curve Ambassador for the last 20 years, Nina is now pursuing her Love Curves project, a platform for plus size fashion ideas and support. Read our 2014 interview with Nina when she featured on our first ever magazine cover and learn more about her career, beauty secrets and working with Gok Wan.

Nina Blakemore – Career, life and loves

As an editorial team, we never underestimated how important our first magazine cover would be. We knew exactly what shot we wanted to create about four months before we even got the shooting team together. We also knew Steve Walton was the man to handle the photography and from the moment we met Nina we knew she was the woman we wanted on the cover. For us, Nina epitomises natural beauty and vivacious energy; a confidence to discover and remain true to who you are. If we as a publication in any way influence brides to embrace that spirit on their wedding day then we will consider ourselves a success. We are truly honoured Nina agreed to be the first face of Buckinghams and we are delighted to introduce her as our first Cover Girl.

How did your career begin as a Plus Size Model?

“I started my career working in promotions, corporate hospitality and exhibitions. Unfortunately, I suffered from an eating disorder when I was 18. My weight plummeted and I was around a size 10. I was taken on by a modelling agency after they saw me at the Motor Show on a car stand, but I was always bigger around my hips and thighs and really struggled to keep my weight and shape to the required size. It came as much needed relief when I heard about “plus size” modelling and my agency suggested I took time out, let my body gain its natural shape and then try to break into the plus size modelling world which was just starting to make its mark in the UK –  this proved to be the best decision I ever made!”

What, so far, was the most exciting moment of your career?

“I have had so many exciting moments in my career – every day is different! I love the challenge, adventure and travel that this job provides but most of all, the best positive by far, are the people that I’ve met whilst working in this industry.  I absolutely loved my time working with Gok Wan on ‘How to Look Good Naked’. This programme epitomises everything that I have worked towards as a curvy girl – you don’t have to be a size zero to be gorgeous! I also had the privilege of being signed with one of the top agencies in the World – FORD Models. I lived in NYC for 3 years and worked with some top photographers and clients. It really was a dream come true!”

What tips can you give our brides for when they’re in front of the camera?

“I think the best advice I can give is just to be completely natural. You’ll find it’s these pictures that make the best ones.  Remember, it’s your day, you’ll be looking and feeling a million dollars in the dress of your dreams with your gorgeous partner next to you. Just enjoy every moment and relax – this is what all the hard work was for. Enjoy being with your family and friends and celebrating the day for what it is. The photographer will capture all your beautiful moments for a day to treasure.”
