DIY Watercolour Wedding Cake Painted Colourful Buttercream Icing Brush-2

DIY Watercolour Wedding Cake Painted Colourful Buttercream Icing Brush-6

We are so excited to share our latest DIY with you! We have had this project in the pipeline for a little while now but as we aren’t exactly master bakers we weren’t quite sure how it would turn out. Well we needn’t of worried because the whole process was so easy and lots of fun. I felt a bit like an artist creating my very own masterpiece!

I have seen a few tutorials similar to this using alcohol or vodka mixed with the food colouring to create a more clean look but I really loved the thick texture created when using the buttercream icing. Although looking at it now, I would probably say it was more oil painting than watercolour. It looks cool nonetheless. You can also see a video of the DIY below, including step by step instructions. Right let’s dive straight in….

Follow Bespoke Bride on Instagram! 

Happy Friday babes! Have you had a good week? Ours has been all sorts of fun! We’ve been busy creating DIYs for you (one may have involved cake….which we may or may not have eaten half of), we’ve also been drinking lot’s of tea (as always!) and we’ve been setting up a couple of styled shoots for the summer which we can’t wait to shoot and share with you! Here’s what else we’ve been getting up to and loving this week…

JESS LOVES…

Having lunch in Chepstow with my sister and having a couple of cheeky Mojitos while we were there! The food was delicious at rum bar and the cocktails were even better! 

Going for a super long walk with Mushu on a beautiful sunny afternoon, we just kept walking and walking and we even stopped for ice-cream! 

Getting up and going for a run in the morning, I actually never thought I would hear those words come out of my mouth but it does definitely make me feel so much more motivated for the rest of the day!

Having our shoes arrive from Upper Street! That’s right my friend, shoes that we designed ourselves! I can’t quite believe I own a pair, can’t wait to strut my stuff in them!!

Starting 50 Shades Freed! There’s no stopping me now, I’m finally on the third book! 

Spending the day at my friend Hannah’s with her little boy Ellis, he’s such a sweetie and it was so nice to be treated to lunch and lots of girlie talk! 

EMILY LOVES…

Being waited on hand and foot! Ha! Thats not quite as bad as it sounds. This week I was really ill with a nasty virus so it was down to Mr T to look after me and a fine job he did too. There was a constant supply of tea, hot water bottles and helpings of dry toast. You will be glad to know I made a quick recovery and I am now back to fighting fit! 

♥ Being ill definitely has its perks, I also got to be super lazy and watch loads more of episodes of Pretty Little Liars on Netflix.

Tuesday was date night and as I am dying to see the new film ‘Insurgent’, it meant I had to watch ‘Divergent’ first. It was awesome and I now cant wait for date night next week, as a trip to the cinema will be on the cards!

A huge highlight of this week was finally receiving the shoes we had designed with Upper Street. Keep your eyes peeled next week as there will be photos galore!!!

Upper Street won again this week when I found out that they had actually put the shoe I had designed onto their website for sale and named it after me. Here is the link if you would like to take a little gander!! Eeeep I actually have a shoe named after me!!!!

SUPER SMOKIN’ SKATER STYLE WEDDING INSPIRATION

SUPER SMOKIN SKATER STYLE WEDDING INSPIRATION (7)

Not a man of many words, Moran Mayan sent this pretty hardcore couples session. Keen to try something different with a rock n roll alternative edge, he used this abandoned warehouse covered in Graffiti and a very cool couple to top. I will let the images speak for themselves.

A BOLD WATERCOLOUR STYLE BACKDROP

DIY Watercolour Backdrop Bold Painted Altar Paintbrush-3

What better way to add a bit of colour to your wedding than with a bold and colourful backdrop! If you think you’re not the DIY type then I think I might be about to tempt you into this one because it took about an hour to make, was so easy and cost the a grand total of £20. Not bad huh! We wanted to create a watercolour effect, but using watercolours on such a large area would have taken days! We know our brides need to be time savvy so we used simple old poster paint, which I think looked just as good and meant we could make it a little rough around the edges creating a cool & edgy effect.
