supplier spotlight #1: cranberry blue weddings

Hello lovelies!  Well, what a week it’s been!  It’s really begun to feel like Autumn with the sudden chill in the air and conkers on the ground already.  I’ve already got my first dose of a winter cold, so today I shall be mostly snuggled up in bed with a big mug of tea and a stack of magazines I’ve been meaning to catch up on!  I hope you all have some lovely plans for the weekend, Autumn brides are you ready?!

We’ve also had a few changes to Bijoux Bride this week!   I had a little refresh with some cute new icons (find out what they all represent here) and a little bit of a shake up to some regular features too!  Most excitingly I launched a new regular feature ~ it’s all in the details ~ to share with you my tip styling tips for different wedding themes! We started off with a look at Shabby Chic weddings.  If you’re still deciding on a theme, or need some inspiration please let me know!

You may have noticed, I’ve also changed our Friday ‘Fab Finds‘ to the new and improved ‘Supplier Spotlight‘ where you can meet the loveliest wedding professionals I’ve found!

We couldn’t have a lovelier supplier to start us off this week!  A big Bijoux welcome to Melanie Helen of Cranberry Blue Weddings & Events, a boutique wedding consultancy with a fashion-conscious twist!  With a keen eye for detail, design and a focus on a bespoke personal service, Cranberry Blue are there to help you transform your big ideas in to reality.  Directed by Melanie, Cranberry Blue is now launching a brilliant new luxury service, with a fashion twist!

Introducing… The Stylist

As a former fashion buyer working with top designer names such as Roland Mouret, and high street favourites Oasis and Arcadia, Melanie still keeps a close eye on the latest trends in the fashion and wedding industry, and understands how to adapt them to suit brides.  The Stylist offers a personal consultation with Melanie to help you find that perfect dress!

During the consultation you will be able to discuss your likes and dislikes, your wedding theme and the latest bridal trends.  You will then be given suggestions for your whole wedding look, including hair, makeup and accessories!  Melanie herself will recommend the most suitable designers, boutiques and stockists and arrange appointments for you, if required

Having met Melanie myself a couple of weeks ago, I can assure you Melanie is one stylish lady! Any bride-to-be will know the stresses and trials of finding ‘The Dress’, and having someone like Melanie to guide you through the experience would be an absolute dream!


I have always been a creative soul, from glitter-filled art room projects to a degree in Interior Design, followed by a decade working in the corporate world. I have a passion for discovering pretty things, an obsession with perfect details and a love for love. B.LOVED is a place I can indulge and share my passions; weddings, interiors, fashion, travel, family and beauty, things all women love. It’s without doubt I can say I have the best job ever!
