inspiration board #8: parisian pastels

This weekend I met up with two fabulous fellow bloggers to indulge in a spot of afternoon tea (followed by four bottles of wine…).  If you are not already following Gaby, blogging about South African weddings at CapClassique and Annie from over the pond at MarryYouMe, then head on over and say hi!

We started off our afternoon at the beautiful French patisserie Ladurée in Mayfair.  I’ve often rushed past their little store and been tempted by the luxurious gold-foiled interior and pretty pastel macaroons calling out from their cute little boxes in the window.

So, today I’m inspired by the pastel perfection that is Ladurée.  I’m dreaming of  gooey macaroons, soft textured florals, pretty pinks, fresh yellows and minty greens, all with a dash of ooh-la-laa!

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.
