Susan Shuttleworth

I spent five years working in marketing and communications in beautiful historic house museums and arts advocacy charities, before taking the leap into freelance writing and content creation in 2017 – I haven’t looked back! I love telling stories and sparking great conversation, and fell in love with the creative possibilities and endless beauty of weddings while planning my own day, in May 2016.

I grew up on the edge of the Elizabethtown before heading off to university to study firstly history and archaeology, followed by a research Master’s degree, in which I wrote a 30,000-word dissertation on eighteenth century female fashion – and I still love to immerse myself in the wonders of bygone style.

As well as a love of history and heritage, I have an enthusiastic eye for art, fashion, design and photography, and for finding the everyday magic in small details and simple pleasures. I live with my husband, three cats, and lots of books.
