#132: chevrons & succulents

Happy Monday readers!  I am literally jumping up and down as I prepare this post! Today I get to share the inspiration behind a very special wedding.  Earlier this year, as I was driving back from a weekend of wedding fair exhibiting, I received a text that made me squeal!  My brother-in-law had finally proposed to his girlfriend of 8 years!  Woohoo!!  Today’s inspiration board is one I created for Danni, my very lovely sister-in-law-to-be, for her wedding next year at Coombe Lodge, in Somerset.  I wanted to capture her classic, unfussy style and combine some of her favourite things – succulents and chevrons – which will feature throughout their day from the stationery, to the table linen, to the grooms bow tie (he may need to be persuaded on that ;)) The navy, grey and white palette is chic and crisp, the bridesmaids have already bought their mis-matched navy dresses! It’s all going to work beautifully in the contemporary interiors of Coombe Lodge.  I’m extremely excited that Danni has asked me to help with the styling and set up of the day – we’re already working on some creative ideas and I know it’s going to be a totally gorgeous wedding.  Perhaps we’ll share a little more inspiration along the way… what do you think?

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.

Oh my goodness, I seriously think this is my favourite board of yours to date, its perfect. I love succulents (and chevrons)

When I was art director at WEDDING magazine, we used to get a few beautifully fresh weddings with succulents from the US and SA but so rare in the UK. I love this fresh look

Aww, thanks Julia!! I take a lot of inspiration from SA weddings – and Danni lives in Cape Town – so it’s lovely that you’ve picked up the look!! Can’t wait :) xo
