#109: Beach Brights

As I’m busy spending my bank holiday weekend in Dubai, I thought it was only fair to share a bit of the sunshine with you today!  I love beach weddings, and although the temptation is to stick to a classic blue, taupe and white palette I’m all for shaking things up a bit.  So what about this fun & colourful beach moodboard?  With a clashing colour palette, the key is to pick shades which tone – bright yellow, pink, coral and orange all belong to the same family and bring sunshine and warmth, while a splash of turquoise adds contrast.  This look is super fun – bright, tropical blooms – think fuschia pink peonies, yellow ranunculus, vivid orange poppies, coral parrot tulips and rusty pincushion proteas softened with a hint of silvery-green foliage.  I love how bleached fan coral has been added to this white topped table for a clean contemporary touch, but the bright blooms work just as well a top a driftwood bench.  Lead your guests to your ceremony spot with bright & colourful balloons – they’re a cheap and effective way of making a big impact in a large space.  The informal and relaxed vibe of a beach wedding lends itself to a picnic-style or buffet meal.  Ditch the formal settings and decorate each place with a pretty napkin and plastic cutlery tied with a colourful name tag {download the DIY here}, and display your menu on a surfboard artistically stuck in the sand (how much fun is this!)  Of course, for UK couples a beach wedding is likely to be a destination celebration – so don’f forget to thank your guests for travelling all that way with a personalised welcome bag, complete with sunglasses for some fun wedding photos!

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.
