WEDDINGS

inspiration board #76: pretty protea

Hey lovely ladies! How was your weekend? What a scorcher! I spent most of the weekend in London with the UKAWP learning some new business skills, developing my styling business and meeting some wonderful new wedding friends. Mr B and I enjoyed a balmy date night on the Southbank at the pop up Wahaca, if you haven’t been yet take a break from your planning and go! Don’t you just love summer :)

Today’s board is one I’ve had stuck in my head for a very long time, combining the best of modern romance, contemporary style with a sprinkling of vintage charm. In dusky pink and pewter it’s such a pretty choice for a romantic bride looking for an elegant wedding with a dash of wow. Team statement proteas, striking South African flowers with natural structure and unusual style, with pale, soft roses to create a striking bouquet, and arrange in pewter and clear glass vases on your reception tables. A few strings of fairy lights add a pretty, intimate glow. Elegant script fonts teamed with subtle blush patterns and ombre details are feminine but keep stationery looking clean and modern. Bridesmaids in chic pewter dresses, and elegant tumbling curls add relaxed glamour. A beautiful vintage lace dress with a streamlined silhouette makes for a stunning bride teamed with an elegant chignon, use the lace detail to inspire your wedding cake to continue vintage elegance throughout the day.

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.
