Regular readers of Bespoke Bride will know that yesterday we celebrated our very 1st Birthday. It has been a rollercoaster of a year but we wouldnt change a minute of it.

Many of our readers are huge lovers of the great outdoor weddings and being from the Forest of Dean we thought it only fitting that we create a woodland wedding inspiration board. Many of you loved this board and we were inundated with emails from couples who thanks to this, were inspired to have an outdoor wedding. In the UK the laws differ in that you are unable to legally marry outdoors, however with the help of celebrants it is now possible to at least celebrate the ceremony outside.
We are huge fans of Etsy and the array of amazing wedding suppliers there are out there so we dedicated a whole post to those that had broke tradition and designed colourful wedding dresses. This black wedding dress was one of particular favourites.
We have become incredibly fond of Lucy Hayes from Lucy Hayes bridal veils over the last year and have been extremely lucky to have her write a number of guest posts for us, one being the history of the bridal veil and her most popular, the history of the bridal gown.

The first real wedding to feature on Bespoke Bride was that of Chloe and Barry and their classic and timeless wedding in Ireland. Real weddings are extremely popular with our readers and after this beauty it is easy to see why?

So obsessed with the alternative and unique are we that we searched for 20 of the most unique and alternative venues in which to hold a wedding ceremony or reception.
We introduced you to a couple of ways in which to display your wedding flowers in a less traditional way, perfect for any DIY wedding.
After having so many intrigued readers after our first woodland wedding inspiration board, we decided to step it up a notch and launch another board only this time we a small enchanted twist.
