One Heart Films + Barreworks present: Bridewell, a bridal lifestyle web series

Christian PetersonComment

Part of our mission at One Heart Films is to help brides and grooms go through the wedding process in a healthy and positive way. We are firm believers in community and reject the tropes created by reality-TV: every woman is a bridezilla-to-be, grooms don't care that much about the wedding, things always go over budget, etc. In fact, day in and day out, we are privileged to witness kind and loving people try to make – sometimes tough – decisions that will shape their wedding day. We see people caring about people, considerate gestures toward vendors, and supporting attitudes when times get rough. So while everything isn't always perfect, we believe in highlighting the good over the bad and encouraging positivity. We want to help people feel good about their wedding, their partners, and themselves.

And so, with this in mind, we’re thrilled to announce a new web series we’ve been working on in collaboration with our favourite fitness studio, Barreworks.

The show, called Bridewell, is a bridal lifestyle web series that focuses on wellness, positivity, and staying true to yourself during the wedding planning process. Every episode, we’ll be chatting with industry professionals about tips and tricks for self-care, posture, style, hair, makeup, and how to surround yourself with a strong community in the days leading up to your special day. The interviews, hosted by Barreworks' own Ming-Bo Lam, are meant be light and casual, and will hopefully leave you feeling informed and refreshed.

From the day we first started following Barreworks, we loved their branding, their course offering and, most importantly, the values they communicate through their social channels. We’re so excited to have had the opportunity of producing this series with them. Watching our interviews with their barre instructors Joanna and Miranda, you’ll understand why they’ve been voted Toronto’s Best Workout Studio by NOW Magazine’s readers for four years running!

Our goal with the Bridewell series is to encourage and promote positive ways for women to boost their wellness and build self – confidence – not just for their wedding day but for the rest of their lives. We hope you'll follow us on this journey. The first episode, Posture with Joanna, goes live on Youtube, Facebook and on our site, on Monday, February 13. In the meantime enjoy our teaser video!

Lastly, heartfelt thanks to everybody involved in this project. We could not have done it without you. You perfectly embody the spirit of community over competition, and we are lucky to count you as friends.
