the new england issue: bouquet recipes

As we leave behind the festive reds and greens of Christmas, we’re settling into a calm palette of colours and looking to the year ahead. Soft pastels and delicate hues whisper of warmer, lighter, brighter weather to come (we hope!), making us shrug off those cosy jumpers and embrace a fresh new style.

New England style takes classic combinations and adds a touch of whimsical romance, so for my first bouquet I chose to blend classic structured flowers powder blue hydrangea, peach avalanche roses and pink dahlia with ivory astible and vibernum berries adding texture and contrast.  This bouquet is hand-tied with stems left showing and bound with a navy blue shot ribbon.

Our second bouquet maintains this classic look on a smaller scale, with softer colours and delicate foliage.  Baby pink dahlia and periwinkle blue delphinium add our main touches of colour, with ivory astilbe, scabious and nigella thrown in for fairy light detail and finished with a vibrant blue taffeta ribbon.  For seasonal alternatives try blush pink anemones and pale blue hyacinths.

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.
