The Design Studio

Consider this your hub of visual inspiration masterminded by Brides Creative Director, Elizabeth Edwards. Enter a dedicated world of bridal knowledge where images and information will be right at your fingertips.

Want to see thousands of shoot images from our archives? Done. Expect a rolling gallery of content bursting with colour and details; from 50 creative cakes to 100 table layouts, it’s all going to be inside. Dedicated iPad stations will allow you to pull together your favourite looks, Pinterest-style, to build your very own mood boards (with the help of the magazine’s creative team, of course!).

Expect live masterclasses happening in this space over the entire show… from a bloggers’ panel discussion to cake-decorating demonstrations and even bouquet arranging.

Get it on your must-do list, drop in and be inspired.
