THE EXPERTS BEHIND THE LARGEST
PERTH BRIDAL EXPO!
The Fielding Family
Backed by more than 30 years in the publishing industry, Dirk Fielding founded United Media Group with a passion for producing outstanding magazines – including Western Australia Wedding & Bride – and wedding expos. Supported by his wife Kaye, and their sons Ben and Sam, Dirk has turned a small family business into a nationwide brand.
Originally founding the Melbourne Wedding & Bride Bridal Expo more than five years ago, the Fielding family have worked their way to hosting one of Australia’s largest bridal expos. With help from the editorial team at United Media Group, the expos have grown to be an amazing opportunity for wedding professionals and brides-to-be alike!

Taking over the task of organising our wonderful Western Australia Wedding & Bride Bridal Expo, Catherine Doedens is the newest face to the United Media Group team. Catherine loves wood-burning fire places, reading and spending time with her family. This year, she is most excited about working with our fantastic exhibitors and seeing beautiful brides be inspired by the expo.
Bhria Vellnagel – Marketing Coordinator
A valued team player, Bhria Vellnagel is our website guru, as well as an writer for multiple United Media Group magazines and a marketing whiz.
Making sure all our clients and exhibitors get great exposure on our many thriving websites, Bhria lives and breathes creative content production.
In her spare time, you’ll find her hiking, sitting down with a good book, or hanging out with her cats.
Jacinta Walsh – Editor of Wedding & Bride
As the new editor of Wedding & Bride and WINERIES, Jacinta Walsh leads a talented editorial team, who are dedicated to inspiring readers with up-to-date content. As the magazines continue to shift under her creative direction, Jacinta can be found hard at work putting the final touches to everything from bridal fashion shoots, to her favourite part of the magazine – the Real Wedding section.
While editing Wedding & Bride gives Jacinta the opportunity to read about your special day, it’s at each bridal expo that she enjoys the added perk of meeting you and seeing where your journey begins!
