5 minutes with the creative minds behind Eco Bride Magazine
Kith & Co recently contributed to a brand new online magazine called Eco Brides, which is Australia’s guide to Eco Chic Weddings. Now we bring you 5 minutes with Lea & Fo the editors behind this great online publication, so sit back and get to know the Eco Brides Team a little better…
How did you get started?
We are both from the wedding industry with Fo being a wedding photographer with her own business Moss Green Images and Lea being a wedding stylist with her own businessWillow Tree Creative Services. Fo and I met in our children’s school yard. One day I made a passing comment to Fo about perhaps starting an online Eco wedding magazine. All I needed to hear from her was a yes and I was off! The next day I had the Facebook page started and had ideas written down as to what kind of magazine we could produce. The rest they say is history…
What is something that no one would know about you?

10 words to describe your style?
Lea: eclectic, fun, on trend and summer Fo: relaxed, colourful, unique, quirky and rock n roll
What is the next big thing/trend?
Although we don’t think it is a trend we believe that more and more brides and grooms are making eco conscious decisions when it comes to planning their weddings. It really fits in with the everything old is new again look that we are seeing a lot in weddings which of course is the perfect way to up cycle and re cycle!

We see ourselves as a quarterly publication and possibly printed on 100% post consumer recycled paper
