#171: Industrial Elegance

171 Industrial Elegance Vintage and Chemistry inspired wedding moodboard for You & Your Wedding Magazine by Louise Beukes Styling on www.blovedweddings.com

Good morning lovely ones! Something a little different for our Monday mood board this week, as I get to share the inspiration behind a recent shoot that I (aka Louise Beukes Styling) was commissioned to style for You & Your Wedding magazine. As the UK’s top selling bridal publication it was a real honour to be asked to create a brand new look inspired by a reader dilemma – how to combine the bride’s love of vintage with the groom’s background in chemistry.  I though an industrial setting would be the perfect way to marry these two ideas, contrasting masculine and feminine details throughout the scheme.  Exposed brick and industrial science-lab details, wire and metal paired with elegant florals in shades of plum and blush pink create a dramatic yet romantic effect.   You can see the finished shoot, and read more about the concept in the Nov/Dec issue of You & Your Wedding, plus I’ll be sharing the full shoot on b.loved very soon!

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.
