Jade is an award-winning editor, journalist and novelist who has worked across the national press, women’s glossies, weeklies and digital channels for more than twenty years. Most recently, she was the editor-in-chief of Condé Nast Brides, where she headed up the market-leading print title, consistently the UK’s No1 best-selling bridal brand. She also oversaw all the digital channels – with a total social following of nearly four million – and the events, including the largest live event, Brides the Show, all of the seasonal catwalk shows and the new Brides Beauty Hub.
One of the most satisfying elements of her role was the huge variety of brands that she worked with, helping to promote their businesses through well-thought-out creative projects that she knew the readership would immediately respond to. She loved getting close to the dedicated and loyal readership; couples all over the country who trusted her to guide them through one of the most important stages of their lives. After eight years in the job, it was still just as fascinating and inspiring. It also helped her to achieve the long-held dream of becoming a published author. June 2018 saw the launch of her debut novel, The Almost Wife, with a follow-up, What I Didn’t Say, published in October the same year.
Today she writes for other leading titles including The Sunday Times Style, The Mail On Sunday‘s YOU magazine, The Telegraph, the Tatler Weddings Guide, Glamour and Stella magazine. She is also one of the Mail on Sunday’s regular fiction and non-fiction book reviewers.
She splits her time between London and the Cotswolds where she lives with her husband and two daughters.
