About Gillian Ellis
Hi I’m Gillian! I was born in New Delhi, India and spent my childhood abroad in China, Russia and England as my Dad photographed top news stories. I was a wedding photographer for 8 years before launching Coastal Bride. I have had the opportunity to work with several household brands including Lindt Chocolate, Plum Pretty Sugar, Progressive Insurance, World Market and Oriental Trading. My work has appeared Nationally on The Weather Channel, Popsugar, Brit + Co, and recently Coastal Bride was nominated for a H+M Bloglovin Award. I am a founding member of Aisle Society, a wedding site that brings together over 30 of the world’s top wedding blogs with a collective following of 10 million readers. I also founded The Charleston Blog Society as a fun way to connect local bloggers.
