Bespoke Bride

more about our guests

Emily Pettiford & Jessica Turley, jolly good friends and founders of Bespoke Bride, which they founded in 2011 after a dabbling in their own startup wedding businesses. The blog was a great way to collate inspiration, chat about their own ideas and share their own products and images. Over time they realised they were beginning to spend more time blogging and as their own passion for their own independent business fizzled out, the blog became their main focus. Emily and Jess wanted to create a platform where they could share the weddings they had come to love, those that were detailed, original, creative and innovative – those that reflected the true personality and character of the couples themselves!

Bespoke Bride is dedicated to inspiring couples who are in the process of planning a wedding to enjoy it, have fun, dream big and above all else… create the wedding of your wildest dreams! Its your day after all.
