This Harakuku Girl styled shoot still has a firm place in my heart as one of my favourite shoots ever to have been featured here on Bespoke Bride! What’s not to love about bright pops of colour, extravagant styling and a dessert table to make anyone squeal with excitement! You better see for yourself! The full…



Personally this has to be one of my all time favourite styled shoot to have ever featured on this blog. The brain child of Fishee Designs, there was not a single detail that she hadn’t covered. The brides bouquet featured the most beautiful pastel coloured flowers, with a few candy canes thrown in for good…


Harajuku Girl Visits English Country House!!!


Well well well, the Coocouturiers have well and truly blown my mind once again! I honestly dont know where they come up with these ideas but each and every time they just knock it right out of the park!

If you are unfamiliar with their work then seriously where have you been?

The goal of the Coocouture Collective is to show how alternative themes can be made accessible and translated into the highest quality wedding styling. Over the summer we featured their Edwardian Steampunk Scientist Bride and since then they have welcomed not just one but two more Coocouturiers to their collective. Hmmm I wonder who they could be? Us of course!!! We were beyond thrilled when Gwenda asked if we would like to join the team, we have been wanting to work more on alternative type styled shoots for some time but were really struggling to find the time and manpower, so this really couldn’t have come at a better time for us. Watch this space as we have some fabulous shoots lined up for you, for now here is a look at the latest offerings from the Coocouturiers…

Wednesday Wedding Inspiration: Japanese Manga

Some of you might know I am a huge fan of Manga, the fact I have three cats called Mr Popo, Chi Chi and Gohan might have given it away slightly but if you didn’t know well there it is, my biggest secret is out. I am also ever so slightly obsessed with Lana Del Rey, honestly I have a huge girl crush on her (who doesn’t?). So when I finally laid eyes on the Japanese Manga styled shoot she did recently for Numero Tokyo I did the one thing only a Wedding blogger obsessed with Manga and Lana Del Rey could do, I created an inspiration board.

But why stop there, I then started thinking about Tokyo’s famous vibrant Harajuku Kawaii Fashion scene and I had a small lightbulb moment in my head. I imagined a wedding full of cute candy colours, colourful hair and one of a kind outfits, something only my dreams could be made of…
