BEHIND THE SCENES AT BESPOKE BRIDE: AUTUMN 2016

Phew! It’s been a crazy couple of months for us behind the scenes at Bespoke Bride! If you follow us on Instagram (and watch our Instagram stories) you would have seen quite a bit of BTS action already but today we thought it would be fun to share a little video showing what we’ve been up to and how certain projects we’ve worked on have come together!

From styling a tropical shoot for Shutterfly, creating decorations for the Cricut Stand at The Handmade Fair, Emily doing a spot of modelling for Tilly and The Button’s new line as well as creating lots of spooky DIYS to share on the blog it certainly has been a fun couple of months!

Our first big project was creating a styled shoot for Shutterfly promoting their awesome personalised products and how fab they are to style a tropical themed bridal shower! We carefully chose our items for the shoot, from watermelon plates to ombré place mats and fun wine glasses! Then, we used lots of fresh fruit and beautiful flowers to add a little more colour to the table.

Next we attended The Handmade Fair with Cricut and if you’ve been reading Bespoke Bride for a while then you’ll know that we are obsessed with these craft machines! We created and styled a bunch of decorations and products for the Cricut Stand including one of our favourite DIYs ever…The cascading flower backdrop! We also loved making this embellished dress for the mannequin and these fun floral cake toppers made out of card! We spent the entire weekend meeting tons of lovely fellow craft obsessives and demonstrating the machines! It was so much fun!

If you follow us on Instagram, you would have seen that we have recently been shooting the images for our brand spanking new media pack. Although we update our kit annually, this one will be particularly special as we are excited to announce that it will also see the relaunch of Bespoke Bride, which is currently undergoing a major overhaul.

Before the shoot we brainstormed a long list of things we wanted and two of the most obvious things for us were lots of fun and of course COLOR! This meant pulling together a kick ass team of professionals who we knew could help us showcase our fresh new look and a slightly new direction for Bespoke Bride. We had so much fun working with the most amazing vendors, so to give you a taster of what to expect from both the new media pack and site over the coming weeks, here is a little behind the scenes of how things went down on the day.

We will jump at any chance to work with our gals and videographers the Costa Sisters who were sold on the concept from the word go, and when they mentioned that their fave photographers Through The Woods We Ran, were relocating to Bristol from Oz, we knew we had to check out their work. Not surprisingly, we instantly fell in love with what we saw! First things first, Glenn and Laura love and I mean LOVE their cats! That was a winner straight away, but when I found out they were also huge animal lovers and Vegetarian, I knew we would get on like a house on fire. Their work is all of the things we were looking for, cool, creative and totally modern and their style perfectly complimented our crazy colorful shoot.

It was so important to us to showcase the work of the many talented vendors in our new marketplace and since we wanted to show as many of their skills as possible, it was only logical to create a number of different styled areas using pieces from Pop Pop Papier, Strange Case and Comeuppance.
