“Love makes life better” 

Emma Smith


Way back in 2013, The Promise was launched by a wedding-obsessed editor called Emma Smith who dreamed of the day when every Northern Irish bride could find inspiration for her dream day at the touch of a button.

A fascination with the love stories that lie behind the pretty pictures is what drove Emma to develop this blog into a journal of life’s most precious moments, with a healthy dose of style thrown in for good measure.

 Emma has spent over a decade working in the wedding industry but she never gets bored of documenting the unique journey of each couple, from the childhood sweethearts to the whirlwind romances. 

Speaking of whirlwinds, as wife to David and mum of four, Emma spends her days packing the traditional 9 to 5 into 9 to 1 (and 9 to 11!) and juggling all the wonderful chaos that comes along with the ‘I dos’.  In April 2018, with this in mind (and a little coaxing from her closest friends) Emma relaunched The Promise which now focuses on the simplest joys – love + life. 

Together with her fellow style maven Lynne, Emma strives to share wedding inspiration, love stories with the deepest meaning, fashion, shoes (because we all need them, right?!), life, home style and travel memoirs.
