Meet Aleisha McCormick
Aleisha McCormack is an Australian author, podcaster and TV producer. She has written, presented, and produced some of Australia’s most loved television and whilst in the UK has worked with ITV, BBC One and Channel 5.
When the Bridechilla Podcast launched five years ago, it was recorded in her bedroom using a mic and ironing board. As she shared her experiences as a bride–how she blocked out pressure and obligation and horrified her family by not having chair covers–her audience grew. Now, Bridechilla has had over a million listens and helped thousands of brides become Bridechillas (‘chillas’ as they like to be called). The Bridechilla brand has expanded with the launch of The Bridechilla Wedding Planning Guides and the ever-growing Bridechilla Community on Facebook.
