#105: lovely lace


Happy Monday lovelies!! How was your weekend? I spent a lovely Saturday afternoon pretending I’m still hip in trendy Shoreditch, a leisurely brunch at my fave spot the Albion Café, followed by a wander through the market and a few impulse purchases for the house, and a very lazy Sunday. Perfection!

This week’s board is an indulgence in a few of your favourite things, romantic neutral, peachy tones and lots of lovely lace.  I feature so many weddings with this combination of lovely things, and I love how you all put your own personal spin on it (to see just what I mean check out Janine & Ewald’s wedding featured last week & pop back on Wednesday for our real wedding treat!).  My take adds a touch of rustic romance, pale coral and peachy flowers add a subtle touch of colour to an otherwise neutral palette – a lovely pairing with an early summer sunset wedding.  Lace details ripple through the day, enveloping elegant invitations, beautifully detailing the brides dress, and edging a vintage-inspired veil, and spilling from a blousy bouquet of early summer peonies and garden roses.  Sweet ribbon and lace wands, with bells attached, are a lovely accessory for your flower girls to announce your arrival before you walk down the aisle, and for your guests to celebrate as you exit as newly weds!  Drape rustic wooden benches with lace tablecloths picked up from charity shops, or collected from family and friends and decorate simply with flower filled (and lace wrapped!) jars and bottles for a relaxed yet pretty look.  For a final flourish, ask your cake designer to replicate the lace pattern on your wedding cake (see how it’s done with this tutorial).  Lovely, lovely lace!

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.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
