image001 (1)

We like to inspire brides-to-be all around, but we get inspired too! We’re shining a light some of the spots we look to for ideas and advice. From local favorites around the country to popular sites brides dive into all around the world, we’ve sharing the best of the best in a whole new way. We’ve chatted with some of the bloggers, creators and founders of some wonderful wedding blogs and got the inside scoop!

Located in South West, England, I got to chat a bit with the creators and founds of Bespoke Bride, Jessica Turley & Emily Pettiford. And here is what I learned.

“We are Emily Pettiford & Jessica Turley, jolly good friends and founders of Bespoke Bride, which we founded in 2011 after a dabbling in our own startup wedding businesses. At Bespoke Bride we believe colour and creativity are a match made in heaven! We celebrate individuality with daily doses of stylish wedding loveliness and tutorials to inspire couples to create a wedding that is personal and unique. Whether it is Rustic or Retro, Backyard or Beach, DIY or DIT, all we ask is that you incorporate your superstar selves into your wedding in some way! In return we promise to provide you with plenty of fabulous inspiration as well as connecting you with the unique & creative businesses that can make it happen!

The blog was originally a great way to collate inspiration, chat about our own ideas and share our own products and images. Over time we realised we were beginning to spend more time blogging and as our own passion for our own independant wedding business fizzled out, the blog became our main focus. We wanted to create a platform where we could share the weddings we had come to love, those that were detailed, original, creative and innovative – those that reflected the true personality and character of the couples themselves!”

Your favorite aspect about blogging and your favorite aspect about your blog specifically:

Our favourite thing about blogging is how it’s never the same two days in a row, one day we could be photographing DIYs, the next out for lunch with other bloggers, the following day working from home and going through exciting submissions we’ve been sent! It’s so nice to work with such variety all the time! And the favourite thing about our blog has to be the colour and vibrancy of it, we both love everything colourful so are we really proud to be able toreflect that in our branding and throughout our content!
