#109: Beach Brights


As I’m busy spending my bank holiday weekend in Dubai, I thought it was only fair to share a bit of the sunshine with you today!  I love beach weddings, and although the temptation is to stick to a classic blue, taupe and white palette I’m all for shaking things up a bit.  So what about this fun & colourful beach moodboard?  With a clashing colour palette, the key is to pick shades which tone – bright yellow, pink, coral and orange all belong to the same family and bring sunshine and warmth, while a splash of turquoise adds contrast.  This look is super fun – bright, tropical blooms – think fuschia pink peonies, yellow ranunculus, vivid orange poppies, coral parrot tulips and rusty pincushion proteas softened with a hint of silvery-green foliage.  I love how bleached fan coral has been added to this white topped table for a clean contemporary touch, but the bright blooms work just as well a top a driftwood bench.  Lead your guests to your ceremony spot with bright & colourful balloons – they’re a cheap and effective way of making a big impact in a large space.  The informal and relaxed vibe of a beach wedding lends itself to a picnic-style or buffet meal.  Ditch the formal settings and decorate each place with a pretty napkin and plastic cutlery tied with a colourful name tag {download the DIY here}, and display your menu on a surfboard artistically stuck in the sand (how much fun is this!)  Of course, for UK couples a beach wedding is likely to be a destination celebration – so don’f forget to thank your guests for travelling all that way with a personalised welcome bag, complete with sunglasses for some fun wedding photos!

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
