my philosophy

the lowdown

I don't believe in forcing things to happen, at the end of the day your wedding is not my photoshoot. It's an epic shindig you'll remember for a lifetime and you better believe I'll be an upbeat, ball of energy bouncing from one moment to the next capturing everything unfold in all it's glory.

I vow to be more than another vendor

my promise to you

I strive to be the creative I'd want on my wedding day. Someone who will provide solid banter with my friends and family, someone who will fix my hair when needed, someone that would shed a cheeky tear during the ceremony but will get amongst the dancefloor to the early hours of the morning. I think the personality of your Photographer and Videographer is just as important as their style and their industry experience.

LOVE NOTE

HUMBLE BRIDAL BRAG

We couldn’t have been happier with our choice to have Teagan be part of our big day in Perth.  My husband was really skeptical about getting a video of our wedding day, I showed him some of Teagans works and his mind changed almost instantly.  Teagan is one of those people that from the moment you meet, she gets you and becomes part of your day as though you have known her for years. Her work is incredible, definitely not just another average videographer.  If you are on the fence about getting a videographer, I can’t recommend O'Brien Originals enough.

Thanks Teagan, we love ya (and so do all our guests) 

Fiona

Frequently asked questions

WHO RECEIVES THE DONATIONS?


We work with over 100 partner organisations across England and Wales, getting period products to refugees, aslyum-seekers and those who can't afford or access them.




HOW DO I SUPPORT YOU?


Colddddd harrdddd cash honey! Seriously though. It takes £££ to buy products and get them to where they're needed, especially since the impact of the pandemic has driven demand up massively. We do it by bulk-buying the products requested by our partners (more on that below), direct from suppliers, and delivering them to partners in England and Wales. This way of working enables us to maximise the number of people we can help. You can be bloody awesome and donate here, or find out about organising a little (or big!) fundraiser here . You can also read more about our new way of working here. THANK YOU. *Please remember, our way of working has now changed, so we're unable to accept any physical donations of any products. Please don't send us any, thanks ever so.*




WHAT ABOUT MENSTRUAL CUPS, PERIOD PANTS AND WASHABLE PADS?


Bloody Good Period provides period products to refugees, asylum seekers and those who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford or access them. We have always prioritised the needs of the people we work with, trusting them to know which period products they prefer to use, or would like to try. We are mostly asked for disposable products, and we have increasingly included eco-friendly products in that provision. We also distribute menstrual cups, reusable pads and period pants. We have also been able to provide more information and support to those who would like to try reusable products, via our menstrual, sexual and reproductive health education sessions. We find that group support, expert knowledge and space to ask questions is often vital - it’s not just about giving out as many cups as we can, but allowing people to understand and work with their bodies in an entirely different way. We are pleased to have been able to distribute a growing volume of reusable products in the last year in particular. We have always recognised that there is no one way to manage everyone’s periods, or one magic solution to period poverty. As a small and growing charity, we also always planned to provide the right support to enable a greater switch to reusables over time, and are thrilled that this change is now happening - whilst also maintaining our focus on meeting the needs of the women and people we work with. Reusable products are not suitable for everyone, or a universal solution to period poverty. For example, refugees and asylum seekers generally live in accommodation without reliable access to lockable bathrooms to be able to practice using cups; or reliable washing facilities to keep cups or reusable pads clean. Many have also suffered trauma, at minimum displacement and the journey to reach this country, but possibly also including FGM, which makes using cups difficult or impossible. Our absolute focus, therefore, is always on getting women and people who menstruate the products they are familiar with and feel comfortable with. If you want to learn more, have a listen to Gabby talking about product preference on Reni Eddo-Lodge’s About Race podcast.

*Please remember, our way of working has now changed, so we're unable to accept any physical donations of any products. Please don't send us any, thanks ever so.*




I WANT TO HELP! HOW DO I GET INVOLVED?


We would bloody love you to! Check out the options here!




WHAT ABOUT TAMPONS?


Tampons are simply not as popular as pads with the people we work with. We only give away about 1 pack of tampons for every 500 packs of pads!

*Please remember, our way of working has now changed, so we're unable to accept any physical donations of any products. Please don't send us any, thanks ever so.*




DO BGP DO ANYTHING BEYOND DISTRIBUTING PERIOD PRODUCTS?


Damn right we do! We raise awareness of period poverty and how it affects women and people who menstruate living in poverty (read our report here). We talk about periods, helping to make them a normal, comfortable topic of conversation for everyone (check out our social feeds). We run education sessions for asylum seekers, refugees, and people that cannot normally access it. We're setting up a programme to help workplaces be Bloody Good Employers. Yep, we are all bloody over it.




DOES BGP WORK IN SCHOOLS?


We don't work with schools or colleges, so unfortunately are unable to provide products or other support to these institutions.

The Government's scheme to provide free period products to all English schools scheme has now launched - find further guidance here.

We are delighted that so many schools are passionate about ending period poverty and are keen to fundraise for us - and we've made a special fundraising pack for you! Here it is!




HOW DO YOU SPEND DONATIONS?


Where we give examples how your donations can help (e.g. here), those examples are based on: Period products. We've taken an average of costs for the different product combinations that are most frequently requested by our partners. We bulk buy and negotiate some great bleeding discounts.
Other costs to make our distribution happen. That includes transporting the products to where they're needed, storage costs for our Take What You Need programme, and staff costs to make the logistics, partnerships and magic happen. We prioritise building sustainable, long-term relationships, so we can be sure to get period products to where they're needed, when they're needed - i.e. every single bloody month. We also run education sessions, getting menstrual, sexual and reproductive health information to those less likely to access it, and work to normalise periods for everybody, so your donations can also help us to do that bloody important stuff too.




DO YOU OFFER INTERNSHIPS / WORK PLACEMENTS?


We work with other organisations, including academic institutions, to recruit interns to join the BGP team. These internships are always paid. As we are a small team, we only have capacity to work with a very limited number of interns each year. Internship projects always align with our organisational objectives and workplans, as well as ensuring interns gain valuable work experience and development opportunities within an intersectional feminist, activist organisation. We are unable to accept speculative applications.




WHY DON'T YOU ACCEPT PHYSICAL PRODUCT DONATIONS ANYMORE?


Because we've changed our way of working, babes! In the last 18 months we've refined a way of working that's helped us meet much higher levels of demand (compared to pre-Covid), and now we're making a permanent switch to that model.

This updated way of working is a brilliant way of working because….well, in short, because we can get more products out to more people, across a bigger geographical area! Those products are also the ones SPECIFICALLY requested by the people we work with—guaranteed to be brand new and in-date. This model also means we have reduced costs - including no storage space cost - so more money for more pads honey! You can be bloody awesome and donate here, or find out about organising a little (or big!) fundraiser here . You can also read more about our new way of working here. THANK YOU!
