Styling The Blogcademy London Bespoke Bride Collaboration Decorations-8

You might remember a few years ago I went along to the first Blogcademy class in London and it was MIND BLOWING, attending the class helped our blog no end so when Kat got in touch to ask if we’d be interested in styling up the venue this year we were honoured and equally terrified! We’d never styled anything other than our living rooms for mini photo shoots so to style an entire venue was pretty epic for us. Of course we couldn’t pass up a challenge so we said yes then quickly got a Pinterest board together (obviously!)

The one thing Kat really loved was this backdrop we had created before, so we got to work on thinking how we could create this on a bigger scale. We had used a big white board before but it would have been impossible to transport so we faced the fact that we should create it on the morning, we obviously couldn’t glue our triangles to the wall though like we did on our board so we decided double sided tape would be our new best friend! And so, around 300 triangles were made using our brand new Cricut Air in all shapes and sizes ready to make our epic photo back drop!


Wednesday Wedding Inspiration: Harry Potter

Man am I excited. My friend from Mexico arrived last night to stay for a few days and I cannot wait to show her The Forest Of Dean where we live!!! One of the stops we’re visiting will be Gloucester Cathedral not only because it’s beautiful but because some of Harry Potter was filmed there! I love how essences of Harry Potter can be found throughout the Forest Of Dean, did I also mention I went to the same school as J.K. Rowling? Yep. Pretty cool ay? Well…not as cool as the Harry Potter wedding inspiration board I’m about to unleash on you all!

But what would a Harry Potter themed wedding look like I hear you cry?! Well….prepare for horcruxes, golden snitch cake pops, broomstick favors and even a few chocolate frogs! I solemnly swear that I’m up to no good…


Wednesday Wedding Inspiration: Game Of Thrones

Ok so I have to be completely honest here… I have never watched Game of Thrones. Reason being the first time I decided to sit down and give it my full attention, the episode was about a rather unfortunate circumstance with a gorgeous husky puppy. Everyone knows I’m a huge animal lover so I was put off from the get go, but that hasn’t stopped me being fascinated by the theme. It is never long until a theme like this influences wedding fashion so I wanted to experiment to see how it can be done in a way that isn’t so medieval but instead celebrates the dark colours and fashion in a modern way and I think iv sort of accomplished that?

Let me know what you think? Not to bad for my first ever inspiration board either…If I might say so myself ūüôā

Wednesday Wedding Inspiration: Glastonbury Baby!!

If you’re reading this then I am officially at Glastonbury, hopefully enjoying the sunshine if it decides to make an appearance! ¬†I’m ready to attend my first festival ever! Go big or go home right? Festival wedding themes are massive right now and I’d love to see a wedding with not just a festival theme, but a Glastonbury theme!

I’ll keep you posted on my Glastonbury experience but for now, here’s how I think it work for a wedding theme…(hint: It would be AWESOME)


Wednesday Wedding Inspiration: My Little Pony

Did you just read that title and go ‘ARE THEY CRAZY?!’ The answer to that is potentially yes…but sometimes it’s fun to go a little crazy with our wedding themes, we all remember the Dr Seuss¬†one don’t we?! Well I’d like to think that with a little hard work and an open mind a theme like could actually work AND look awesome at the same time!

The idea came to me when we had lunch with Emily from Fishee Designs last week, she turned up with a full on My Little Pony manicure and the light bulb in my head lit up! This one’s for you Fishee! Now, I’m not going to sit here and say that this would be an easy theme to pull off because there is very fine line between making this tacky and making this fabulously fun! You need just enough crazy colours, pastel schemes, ponies & unicorns to make this work…


Wednesday Wedding Inspiration: Eco Warrior Princess

Ever thought about taking your wedding back to basics? I mean REALLY back to basics. Imagine you lived in a tee-pee with no electricity and you grew your own fruit and vegetables, imagine that evenings were spent around a camp fire instead of a TV and being Eco friendly was a way of life for you. What would your wedding look like? Well, it would look like the wedding of an Eco warrior princess of course…

Wednesday Wedding Inspiration: Silver Linings

We couldn’t very well do a gold inspiration board without following up with a silver one now could we? Personally, I don’t wear gold so silver is right up my street and I think it looks just as classy as the gold board! Just like before, classy doesn’t mean it needs to be an extravagant and expensive affair! Silver cake pops and a little costume jewellery bling could do the trick!

Wednesday Wedding Inspiration: ‘We Bought A Zoo’

If you’re a regular reader of Bespoke Bride you’ll know that a few weeks ago I watched ‘We Bought A Zoo’ and kept banging on about it because I loved it so much! For those that haven’t seen it it’s a heart warming film about a family who buy a house that is situated on a zoo and as part of the home deal they have to restore and open the zoo. ¬†Now, I don’t know about you but I reckon I would flipping love living on a zoo! But how about getting married at a zoo?


Well, I think that would be pretty darn great too!


Wednesday Wedding Inspiration: Music Lovers

You all know that here at Bespoke Bride we love weddings that are FULL of personality and passion and if one of your passions just so happens to be music then you’re in for a treat! I’ve gathered up some of my very¬†favorite¬†photos¬†from¬†musically inspired weddings and if you have an ear for audio then I know you’re going to be just as in love with this idea as me!

I’m not talking about printing off a few musical sheets and using them for decor….oh no, I’m talking place mat records, CD favors, gig ticket invites and much much more!


Wednesday Wedding Inspiration: Berry Nice!

Throw away the apples, ditch the oranges, and forget the pears! It’s all about the berries baby! I LOVE berries and it’s just about to be their prime time in the spotlight, summer is on the horizon and I’ve got strawberries, raspberries and blueberries on my shopping list. So, how would berries work within a wedding? Pretty dam well I’d like to think…

Let me show you just how beautiful these summer fruits would look as part of your special day! (P.S How gorgeous is that berry crown? I’m a little bit obsessed with crowns at the moment!)
