Client is one of the most popular online magazines for brides in Romania, being first launched in 2017.

The client approached us a startup back in 2017 with an idea about an online inspiration platform for brides and grooms.


They needed o solution to build a classical online magazine with thousands of articles, but also with a few different types of custom content, generated by a mix of contributors and manually curated by their editors.

Beside the online magazine, the solution had to include a marketplace component with content from different sources.


We built a custom solution with a mix of technologies, using Laravel as main framework for both the magazine and vendor directory, but keeping a WordPress CMS to manage the posts and categories

Create a frontend application in Laravel, fully optimised for search engines (SEO), using both data from its own database (a WordPress database) but also from an external application via API.

Create a responsive design, compatible with desktop and mobile devices, but with a mobile-first approach.

Use the WordPress CMS to manage the magazine content – articles, pages, categories but also the SEO data.

Host the entire ecosystem in a Digital Ocean cloud infrastructure, easily managed with Laravel Forge.

How we worked

Having an existing collaboration with this client on the Fotografi-Cameramani project, we already had a team of developers who knew the company and the domain.

We started with a team made of 2 developers, one frontend and one backend, who built the frontend platform in Laravel and also created a core module responsible to store all the data models that the two projects worded with.

As the project got bigger, we added 2 more developers to work on. The team was occasionally assisted and helped by our UI / UX designer and dev ops engineer.

The entire project development was managed by the client’s Project Manager in strong communication with the team leader senior developer.

Agile and Scrum was the way we worked, with 2 weeks sprints, classical daily stand-ups and sprint reviews.
