About us:

Bridebook is the UK’s leading wedding planning app and website. Since launching in 2016 we now have 1 in 2 engaged couples in the UK using Bridebook to plan their wedding. We've been featured by the App Store, New York Times and the BBC, and we’re only just getting started!

 

We are seeking an experienced Digital Designer to help shape the future of our product as we continue to take the industry by storm. You will be responsible for leading and growing our design team and ensuring our product is designed to make wedding planning as intuitive, fun and rewarding as it should be. You should be capable of orchestrating an end-to-end design process (research and ideation through to high-fidelity prototyping), bringing in strong UX, UI and visual design experience. You will be leading our design efforts and working hand-in-hand with our engineering and product teams to build and deliver an outstanding product.

The state-of-the-art wedding planning toolkit allows couples to plan their whole wedding from any device, anytime, anywhere, together, all in one place. Whether it is shortlisting florists, juggling your guestlist, handling RSVPs, managing quotes and balancing your budget, Bridebook is your trusty wedding planning sidekick and the long awaited update to the industry. Welcome to the world wide wed. Bridebook also has leading experts on hand, from beauty guru Bobbi Brown, to advise on your wedding look, to Britain's favourite baker, Mary Berry, who has your wedding cake questions dusted.

 

The UK's top wedding providers also impart their wisdom - think George Clooney's wedding stationer, Kate Moss’s wedding florist, Kate Middleton’s wedding hair stylist. The wedding 'dashboard'​ gives real-time updates and guidance on the planning progress and what to tackle next, who should pay for what, and how to delegate to the unsuspecting bridal party.

 

The Bridebook budget guide is an industry first, based on the budget analysis of thousands of previous weddings, guiding couples as to how to make the most of their budget. Bridebook will soon even allow multiple logins with restricted view, so family and friends can be kept informed and at bay in equal measure!

How to apply...

Full managed

 

We take care of the entire process for you so we can manage and remove poor experiences like ghosting, no feedback, no updates and so on  🙌

 

All you have to do is let your Relationship Manager know you’re interested, ask them any questions you have and they will take care of the rest.

Straight to the front

From there, what’s next is super simple  😇

If you like the initial sound of the company/ role. We then act as your “in” with them and set up an initial phone chat with you and the Hiring Manager there. 

 

The chat will be pretty informal and should only last 10-15 minutes - It's a fact find for both of you. 

 

More than prepared 

 

Before the call we will send you EVERYTHING you'll need to know about the company / who they are looking for / format of the call and so on. 

 

You will be fully prepared and know what to expect at every stage 😀
