Blissful Blossoms Slo was founded by Karen Shriner in May 2012, whilst planning her own wedding day. From personal musings and a place bookmark her wedding finds, it grew into a resource followed by couples. When devastatingly Karen and her fiancé decided to cancel their wedding 8 weeks before hand, she could not bear to say goodbye to Blissful Blossoms Slo and the community she had established. So she continued in her quest to assist and inspire other couples and to promote the amazing wedding industry.

Blissful Blossoms Slo totally transformed my life. You see, back in May 2012 I was on maternity leave from a part time cleaning job, having graduated two years previously from my local university with a Marketing degree. I wasn’t on the career path I’d hoped, due to crippling anxiety and agoraphobia. However I had a beautiful 6 month old baby boy and my wonderful fiance by my side. We’d been engaged for just shy of two years and we decided to start planning a budget wedding. Being what felt like trapped indoors, I turned to the internet. I found a whole online community of really lovely planning couples and starting discovering remarkable suppliers. I became hooked by the wedding industry, the friends I was making and the emergence of online blogging. So I decided to start journalling my own wedding plans for fun. Little did I know, this single decision would bring me confidence, independence and a sense of belonging.
