It has taken a little while for the wedding scene to catch up with fashion world, certainly in the UK, but with boutiques like LA BESPOKE BRIDE opening and stocking a gorgeous edit of highly covetable, achingly cool international designers, it finally feels like there's more on offer here for the Bride who wants her wedding day style to reflect her everyday style. (You'll find more boutiques like this in our List by the way...) These images from LA BESPOKE BRIDE's first Look Book, shoot by Alli Oughtred, capture the essence of the free spirited Bride to perfection. Amy's love of fashion and experience of working in the couture world is reflected in the editorial styling here, the detail of the gowns are shown off beautifully and the hair and make up looks are undone, bohemian and oh so sexy. Amy's boutique looks seriously Instagram-able too, we're hoping to pay a visit this year and we think LA BESPOKE BRIDE should be on your hit list too. Ready for some seriously swoon worthy dress inspiration? Thought so!

The Background

LA BESPOKE was born from a personal journey, expanding from merchandising through to planning a wedding in Marrakech. Finding a sense of 'new cool' for weddings opened the doors to perfecting that​ day for others​ and the​ search for their dress.​ Amy's background is in fashion styling and merchandising having worked​ previously for fashion houses Gucci and Louis Vuitton, it was an organic step into bridal. Amy's meticulous attention to detail and keen eye for co-ordination will ensure that you find the perfect dress.
