Creating a Magazine: BE Inspired


Back in 2015, Blake had a vision of creating a range of stylish and inspirational magazines with a difference, starting off with delving into the world of luxury weddings. Uniquely it would come ‘from within’, with contributors and indeed the Editor being internationally respected experts from the wedding world who attend and plan weddings every week. The magazines should cover unexpected and meaningful topics, as well as all the enjoyable aspects of planning a luxury wedding… and it should be full of genuinely useful advice from masters of their crafts. BE Inspired: The Wedding Edition was born.

Through a huge archive of wedding photography that became a gateway to real life stories, to depicting emotions and recounting beautiful days of incredible style, the visual content was abundant. So many ideas for articles came to the fore, all through working with so many amazing people, wonderful couples and distinguished professionals. We wanted to know how esteemed floral artist Rob Van Helden had risen to the top of his field, we wanted practical advice to help Brides or Grooms who don’t love being the centre of attention to relax and enjoy their day, we wanted one of the UK’s top wedding planners to tell us her favourite traditions from across weddings of all faiths.

So with content being constantly developed, a stunning publication began to emerge thanks to the dedication and talent of Jamie Brown at Two Boys Digital.

Having partner brands which include Claridge’s, Roja Parfums, Hatton Garden Diamond, Muzika, Privee Concierge, Caroline Castigliano, Gavsy Creative Media and Tony Page will ensure that BE Inspired: The Wedding Edition will be seen by those to whom it is most useful – couples in the early stages of planning their luxury weddings and looking for inspiration.

After countless meetings, flat-plans, coffees, late-night e-mails, interviews and design tweaks, and our first magazine was ready to launch, even with its own accompanying website with additional ‘Digital Extra’ content! Click the screenshot below to go straight to the site.

BE Inspired: The Wedding Edition has now flown the nest, and made its way all over the UK, proving to be an insightful and inspirational read for engaged couples and event professionals alike. It can be found in selected luxury outlets or copies can be requested through the website. We have been blown away by the response to our inaugural publication and planning is underway for an amazing Issue 02, already with a huge amount of interest from top professionals who want to share their advice and be involved in such a unique project.
