Although bespoke is an old word meaning custom designed, it doesn't mean that you're settling for old customs.
For me and my business, 'bespoke' is about YOU and what YOU want.
And while sometimes you might want an 'old' ritual like handfasting or jumping the broom in your wedding - rituals that have their origins in past practices that pre-date the modern concept of weddings, I might add - how it is developed and delivered for you is the true meaning of bespoke.
You might be wondering why I have a photo of Colin Firth in his iconic role as Mr Darcy from 1994's BBC adaptation of the Jane Austen masterpiece, Pride and Prejudice in this blog post. Colin/Mr D holding a Star Wars light sabre, no less. That's because you can mix old with new, and bring new ideas to old concepts - and vice versa. That's my specialty. One day you might be lucky enough to work with me and see for yourself.
In my Bespoke Blog, I'll post once a week about bespoke things that might be of interest to marrying couples. I say 'might' because until I talk to you, I have no idea what you're looking for in your own ceremony.
I can promise you that this will be a 'No-BS' Bespoke Blog. There's enough BS in our daily lives to power the planet, and I don't aim to add to it.
Have a great week and stay safe. There is only one you.
