Introducing the Confetti Online Team

Confetti Online Team

{The Confetti.ie Team: Louise, Emily, Aoife, Anna and Laura}

Happy Monday, readers! Today is an exciting day at Confetti.ie. We're pulling back the velvet curtains and unveiling the team behind Confetti online. We want you to know who's writing each post, what their expertise is, and what they're up to when they walk out of Confetti HQ each evening. 

But not only are we introducing you to the Confetti team, we're also kicking off a whole new lot of content - more posts, more inspiration, more topics for you to weigh in on. It all starts tomorrow, and we hope you'll enjoy it! Come back often, and let us know what you think! 

Now, let's all get to know the Confetti team. 

Emily Westbrooks - A recent addition to the Confetti team, Emily has come on board to work primarily on Confetti.ie. Emily moved to Dublin in 2008 after DIY-ing her own wedding in the States, and has worked in communications and as a freelance journalist for the last several years. She writes a lifestyle blog of her own, From China Village, as well as for various print and online publications. She'll be sharing DIY projects, trends, and lots of useful wedding tips with you each week. When she's not writing for Confetti, you'll find Emily at home in North Dublin with her husband, one cat, and four sassy chickens. 

Laura Cunningham - Dublin native Laura studied Broadcasting and Journalism, and after a brief dalliance in pop stardom in a band called Triniti, she started her media career as a TV fashion stylist on TV3's Ireland AM. After styling editorials for numerous Irish magazines and newspapers, she began writing a fashion column and soon became a fashion editor. Laura joined the Confetti team in 2012 and has since fallen in love with all things bridal. In fact, her main challenge in life is trying to convince her boyfriend that her obsession with weddings is nothing to worry about. She's a crazy cat lady (so crazy she doesn't even have a cat) and is a recent Paleo bandwagon jumper. Speaking of which, she also likes jumpers. 

Anna Shelswell-White - Hailing from West Cork, Anna is our Staff Editor for Confetti. She got her feet wet in the wedding business early, helping with the family business at Bantry House and Garden. She's no stranger to gorgeous weddings, and she'll be bringing you a beautiful Irish or international wedding celebration each week. Her background in arts management and gallery curation means you're always in for a treat. She's been involved in music, theatre and arts projects in Ireland and is our resident cheesy pun generator - you'll get used to it eventually! 

Aoife Valentine - Aoife is a final year law student, but with a made-for-the-job surname, we're not surprised that she gravitates toward weddings. Having decided the legal life isn't for her, Aoife is now indulging her crafty side by creating dreamy moodboards of DIY touches to add to any wedding day, in the hope that soon everyone will be crafting! When she's not pretending her Pinterest obsession is actually work, Aoife is a freelance journalist and graphic designer. 

Louise Dockery - Louise is our editorial assistant and domestic goddess in training. She's passionate about all things homey and has a background in interior design and food styling. She's going to put all those passions together to give you tips for making your wedding feel like a fancy extension of your home. A native of Leitrim, she has worked at Lough Rynn Castle as well as one of Long Island's most prestigious wedding halls and she knows what works when it comes to weddings. Louise is a sucker for lists, a good sad song, and adventures around her adopted home of Dublin. Outside the office, you'll find her writing at her lifestyle and decor blog, The Nesting Magpie

So that rounds out our Confetti online team. We're thrilled to have you here with us, and we can't wait to unveil lots of exciting articles and ideas for you in the coming weeks! Until tomorrow!
