Charcoal & Mustard Inspiration for Twobirds Bridesmaid


Morning lovelies! A gorgeous bit of inspiration to round off this week on b.loved, with my next Twobirds inspiration board.  Make sure to keep an eye on the Twobirds blog to catch my monthly boards first!

This month, Michelle asked me to create something different for a winter wedding.  We picked the sophisticated Charcoal as our key colour, and I picked a rich mustard as an accent.   I do love a good yellow & grey wedding palette, and just because its grey and cold outside, doesn’t mean you can’t add a pop of colour to your wedding celebrations.  In fact, it might just be the perfect way to warm up an otherwise monochrome palette.  Yellow and grey is one the freshest colour combinations for a summer wedding, but tone down the palette just a touch and you end up with a rich, muted combination of charcoal and mustard perfect for a fun and interesting winter wedding.

Think warm and cosy with cute yellow cardigans for your ‘maids and a luxurious grey stole for you.  Keep stationery contemporary with bold fonts and modern monograms.  Hang colourful lanterns and add votives and candles to your tables for a wonderfully warm glow.  Make the most of winter flowers, velvety white leaves and silvery berries paired with rusty gold dahlias and roses displayed in gold goblets and urns for a touch of luxe.

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.
