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!
