#131: shades of grey


Morning my b.loved’s! There’s only been one word to describe this weekend; grey.  Hence my inspiration for this week’s board.  Far from being miserable, cold and boring, a grey wedding palette is the ultimate in cool and calm sophistication.  It would work for any style of wedding from 1920’s vintage glamour {just like Bianca & Tiaan’s wedding} to full-on modern minimalism {seen in my modern monochrome board}, but today we’re channelling contemporary romance {and absolutely nothing to do with the book!}

For this look there’s nothing more beautiful than calligraphy, a clean and simple suite with swooshing lettering works perfectly to hint at the elegance to come.  All white flowers, with hints of silvery berries and foliage add texture and contrast against a dove grey wedding dress. Oh how I’d love to see more brides wearing this sophisticated shade!  Don’t be tempted to overcomplicate this look – less is more really comes in to play here!  Simple table settings are brought to life with soft grey linens and white flowers displayed in clear or white vases, and ceilings strung with simple white fairy lights turn your elegant day into a sophisticated soiree.

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.
