inspiration board #96: mod monochrome


Happy Monday wedding lovers! What a gorgeous weekend! I went to visit my mum, which meant home cooking (yum!) and lots of prep for the London Wedding Emporium in a couple of weeks time. Why not come visit me there, see what I’ve got in store for you, and find some cool and contemporary ideas and suppliers for your big day?!

All the gorgeous sunshine inspired me to create a fun and fresh mood board this week, inspired a little by the fashion trend for sixties retro and monochrome (check out Louis Vuitton SS13).  A black & white monochrome colour palette and a splash of mustard yellow keeps the look young and contemporary.  Think beehive hairstyles and bold eyeliner, teamed with flirty short prom dresses, and colour splash accessories (I love this bright bow!).  A cute little clutch bag and a blusher veil keep the sixties vibe.  Keep your guests guessing with a simple black and white invite and surprise them at your reception bringing in some colour – how cool are these paper chains?!  I’m still loving the dessert table trend, and this slick and elegant version certainly gets my vote.  And to round off the day?  Why not take a leaf from weddings of days gone by with an early get away – with this cute beetle you’ll leave in style!

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.
