Hi, I’m Cathy, the artist behind The Origami Boutique. I create stunning origami pieces that will suit a bespoke bride perfectly. Either it is a piece of jewellery or a very unusual origami bouquet, there will be something to make every bride dreams come true. And when the wedding day has passed a memento can be create to keep the memory of the day fresh in everyone minds.
Ohhh, decent quality free advertising that doesn’t come with a huge catch? I’m up for that lol! Have really got to get on top of things this year as I’ve an amazing design in the works and the world needs to see it!
Happy New Year!
Bloom would LOVE to win this advertising space on your wonderful blog!
We create beautiful bespoke hair creations for all occasions. Our product is completely innovative and is revolutionising the hair extension market. We use no clips, grips or adhesive, making the product completely damage free. It is our passion to create hair that looks elegant and above all, completely natural.
Having worked with many brides in creating beautiful hair for their wedding day, we have a wealth of insight, colour and styling knowledge to help pair your hair to the dress of your dreams.
Every girl knows that their hair is their best accessory! Never is this more true than on your big day.
We also cater for clients with hair and scalp conditions such as alopecia, hair loss, thinning and eczema.
We would be happy to offer any Bespoke Bride reader a special discount!
White Crafts is the home of awesome hand made wedding stationery and Bespoke Bride is the home of awesome blogging! Pretty good fit I think 🙂
Lets rock the wedding world!
Hey Lovely ladies, I am a creative, quirky wedding photographer and I specialise in photographing super cool & creative DIY & bespoke weddings with buckets of personality and love. I would really like the chance to win some free advertising on your blog as I think my style is a perfect fit for you & your readers 🙂
HELLOOOOO!!!!!! I’m Jay, and I’m a wedding photographer who will shoot any wedding in any place which has air to breathe (and sometimes not, depending on requests – I did an underwater photo shoot a while ago. That was hilarious and I’m sure I need to repeat that, ASAP. Someone please find me a swimming pool. Or a ticket to the Bahamas).
I’m that wedding photographer who gets excited when clients email saying they just bought a tuxedo for their cat. Or that they’re secretly a burlesque dancer. Or when they tell me they’re ordering a pig roast for the evening just because they know how much I love bacon. Or that they want me to shoot their wedding at a ski lodge in Germany or the Little White Chapel in Vegas. Or that they plan on making their venue SO homely, they’re taking their comfy chairs, floor lamp and floor rug to use during the ceremony.
(All of the above is true. Apart from the pig roast. Maybe.)
I do love teamwork when it comes to shooting for my wedding dudes, and teamwork is exactly what I aim for as soon as people get in touch. So I need to love them as much as they (hopefully…) love me. No other suppliers in any wedding will be more excited than me, that’s a fact. I’m a WEDDING JUNKIE. Actually I’m a ninjographer, as per my site https://www.jaymountfordphotography.co.uk, and as previous clients have described me. And, I can talk/listen about weddings for EVER.
Oh and of course, I’m probably as bonkers, lively and unique as the awesome Bespoke Bride girlies. So it just makes sense, y’know? 😉 xx
Jay you missed out the fact you not only own a pair of Heelies, you rock about the place in them.
HAHAHAHAHAH!!!! Geeeze I can’t believe I missed that out!! Those will be making SEVERAL appearances this year, methinks… 😉 #WeddingTogOnWheels
I’m an Independent Celebrant, and the founder/owner of True Blue Ceremonies – I specialise in personal *bespoke* wedding ceremonies for couples who want to do things a little differently … so if getting hitched in a wood, meadow, orchard or your own back garden appeals, then I’m your gal! Unlike a Humanist, I can include religious symbolism and readings into your ceremony if that appeals … but really it’s all about making your wedding day as personal as we possibly can and writing a script that reflects the two of you and the vows you want to say to each other. I firmly believe in choice so why follow the herd? I absolutely love this blog, it’s inspirational, a great source of information for brides and I think many of your readers will identify with the bespoke service I offer. Happy wedding planning and Happy New Year to you all! xx
My sister-in-law and I have only been up and running since September as a photography duo. Free advertising would be so amazing for us as we’re trying really hard to get our name out there!
You’ve already seen some of our photos as we’re local forest of dean photographers, and we were so excited that you choose to feature one of our engagement photo shoots!!
We would love love love to advertise for your readers.
(and maybe do a photo shoot one day with you lovely girls as we’re so close!)
Wow what a fab idea, an amazing blog giving away quality advertising and it’s free. I am a wedding hair and make up artist working alone doesn’t leave a huge budget for advertising, but I do manage to get around and the Cotswolds. I would be more than happy to give any bespoke bride a discount for my services. Fingers will be crossed until the 5th January. Happy new year to you both x
Hey hey Emily & Jess! Me and my partner Helen are up an coming alternative wedding photographers in Gloucestershire. We’ve had an absolute blast this year, and it would make our 2014 start with a real bang if we had the amazing opportunity for some awesome advertising our your wonderful blog! We adore this stuff, and for us the best bit is getting to meet, work with and be inspired by couples, suppliers and other like minded people who want something interesting and personal for their wedding or engagement, or just life in general. I mean, who doesn’t like to put their stamp of stuff and make it theirs? We’re always looking for new, funny, beautiful, amazing ideas and we love being surprised by what our couples come up with. Hope you have an awesome New Year.
We’ll, I’ve never really advertised properly apart from boosting the website on google and word of mouth. You girls have both told me the importance in advertising and how to get your name out there. I am hugely passionate about what I do and I’m hoping to expand some time next year, and this would be a great opportunity to get my name and brand out there, make some new friends and meet some amazing people and hopefully build a stronger clientele!
Fingers crossed for me beautiful girlies. Xx
I am the owner/founder/designer and maker of Chloe’s Crafts – named after my 2 year old daughter.
I design unique, papercut cards which are perfect for wedding invites, save the dates and thank you cards. I enable brides to incorporate their theme and colour scheme in to their wedding stationery.
I also make unique place cards which allow you to stand out from the crowd on your special day.
I think Chloe’s Crafts would be a perfect match for Bespoke Bride!
Wow, what a great prize, and what worthy entries you’ve had so far!
Stitches & Lace are already sponsors, so perhaps cheating to enter, but do love the chance to interact with the blog! 🙂
We hand-embroider Converse with bespoke designs and phrases, making them a super-special (not to mention WEARABLE) keepsake for all the bridal party! Bespoke-bride-tastic!
Lots of love, Merry Christmas, happy New Year etc etc xxx
We would love to win the chance to advertise on your fabulous blog. We started up VW’Do’Weddings this year, we are massive VW fans and love anything wedding related. We are based in the beautiful Forest of Dean. We love things which are unique/different and are currently working on our new exciting project. Our new addition will be a 1936 Master Sedan Chevrolet (think gangster style). We believe there are only a handful in the UK and cannot wait to use it for weddings all over Gloucestershire. To win this would be a fantastic boost to our new business.
Oh ladies. We would simply adore to be gracing the pages of this fabulous blog.
We’re a design company from Liverpool who have experience in Film, Tv, Theatre and Events. 2013 was our first year getting involved in weddings and my god what a year it was. From 1940’s styling, that graced your pages to making hundreds of giant paper flowers by hand, 2013 has been awesome.
We are dying to get stuck into even more weddings in 2014 and being huge lovers of all things DIY, handcrafted and bespoke, being on your site would totally rock. Or as we say in Liverpool, it would be DEAD BOSS.
We’re making 2014 our year of weddings, with a new range to release, some awesome couples and huge ideas, we cannot wait and hope to keep you posted about it allllllll.
HAPPY NEW YEAR.
Sophie Strange Case.
(I’ve rambled, but I blame my excitement of potential advertising and 2014 being ever so close!)
I’m Ashleigh, the all-in-one person behind Paper by CharmCat… designing affordable, unique, and stunning wedding invitations and other stationery. I put a lot of time and love into every set I do.
I’m still starting out, and haven’t done much advertising yet, but I have huge plans for 2014!
Hi I am Craig, the reason I would be perfect is because I love you guys more than chocolate biscuits and that’s the truth 🙂 xx
I run a shop that custom makes robes, shirts, tote bags, handkerchiefs and more.
Personalized gifts for everyone 🙂
I run a cute lil wedding shop where brides, bridesmaids and the entire wedding party can personalize their wedding from monogrammed spa robes, handkerchiefs, monogrammed sweatshirts and shirts for the bridal party, to tote bags to give as party favors.
We are a travelling tea room inspired by our love of the 1940’s, we can set up anywhere you can think of for your bespoke hen party or wedding! We can also help you with our vintage nick knacks (cut glass vases/vintage napkins/china/floristry/mirrored signage/ floral marquees etc etc) and wedding styling and even the vintage music! We think its your wedding, do it your way! (with a little help along the way!)

I’m pretty new to the scene so I need all the help I can get in spreading the word so this would be a fantastic boost for my little business. I offer a different kind of stationery from the run of the mill stuff. All my designs are hand drawn and painted by me so they have their own unique look.

Yooooo, I’d LOVE to win 3 months of free advertising and would be perfect for your readers because my wedding photography is all about being true to your uniqueness and having fun!
I hope I’ve done all the entries bits correctly!
What an amazing prize. This will be The Moss Letter Company’s first wedding season this year as we launched a little to late last year. We are excited for where 2014 is going to take us and this is the year for getting ourselves our there and known to those rustic/country/nature loving couples. We think we are a fabulous match for Bespoke Bride and the bespoke girlies are local to me too! Neighbours, Everybody needs good neighbours…..!
Just as you aim to help make weddings unique and personalized, I aim to help make homes unique and personalized on a super tight budget (and occasionally throw an awesome party).
I make personalised printed hen clothing and just married stickers/banners.
We are Emma and Daniel, a married couple who have started a new business providing wedding transport with optional wheelchair access in our vintage 1972 bay VW campervan named Bruce!
We only started at the end of 2013, so the chance to be advertised on your amazing site would be great!
Thanks for having such a great competition and fingers crossed!
Emma and Daniel x
Hey girls, ooo the chance to win an advertising spot on your blog!? Yes please!
I’m a wedding photographer that loves photographing creative and quirky weddings in a honest, natural and fun way. I love getting to know my couples, finding out more about them and their personalities and seeing that reflected in their weddings. What could be better than that?
I’d love the opportunity to advertise with you as I think, for me, as both a wedding supplier and a bride-to-be, your blog portrays the creativity and personality that I love. I’ll be launching my new website and rebrand soon, so it would be fab to be able to share this with you as another chapter in my business journey. Happy days 🙂 x
Dear Emily and Jess! Thanks to you I was reminded in 2013 that with #passionandballs I could make my dream of becoming an international wedding photographer work! My goal was to have my work featured on Bespoke Bride in 2013! I was honoured that you chose to feature my work not once but three times throughout the year! In 2014 I have set the bar higher! My goal for 2014 is to have my first UK wedding featured on Bespoke Bride and to meet up with the girls of Bespoke Bride when Im in the UK for my first wedding over there! You girls inspire my business, my art and my life and I feel very blessed to have been part of the inspiration you bring to your readers! (did I mention that winning the advertising would really really help me to book that first UK wedding? And that it would be so cool if my first UK bride is a Bespoke Bride reader? 🙂
Dear Emily and Jess! You inspired me in 2013 me that with #passionandballs I could make my dream of being an international wedding photographer work! I aimed for the stars by setting the goal of having my work featured on Bespoke Bride! You helped me reach the moon by featuring my work three times in 2013! My 2014 goal is to have my very first UK wedding featured on Bespoke Bride… and would love for that bride to be a Bespoke Bride reader! (And the advertising would go a long way in helping me achieve that goal!) Love! xx
I am a Sussex based photographer and would love love love to advertise on your blog! I have big dreams for 2014 and would love to start the year off with such style!
A bit of a last minute entry but I only found out about this wonderful competition a few hours ago!
At Tentario, we specialise in creating original, atmospheric venues for weddings within our utterly stunning Tipis. In our opinion, they offer so much more character than a standard white marquee and understand that when Bespoke Brides are looking for a venue for their special day they’re looking for something different and extraordinary. Our Tipis provide a truly memorable experience that wow couples and their guests, creating the perfect setting for a day that will never be forgotten.
We would love to be given the opportunity to advertise on Bespoke Brides 🙂 X
