BOND Bride Issue 2

BOND Bride Magazine issue 2 is out now; the digital magazine from the team behind the creative blog and show – Magpie Wedding.


BOND Bride Magazine Issue 2


This issue is packed full of real weddings and inspiration, focused around our core ethos of inclusivity, being ethically minded, wellbeing over weight-loss, supporting UK indie businesses and holding feminist values.

Inside you will find 6 real weddings including a rock n roll bride in a black dress, a vintage ethical day with a bride wearing dark green velvet, an industrial Manchester do with the cutest bridesmaids, one where dance plays a huge part (expect ballet!), one where they ran away to Las Vegas and an outdoor tipi festival wedding.

There are trend pieces featuring some of our favourite looks for 2020, oversized flowers and cool makeup.

There are articles and ideas on going plastic free, tips for an introverted bride, how to have a truly accessible wedding and why women choose not to change their surnames.
All this across 86 pages.
