#133: Festive Fancy


Morning b.loved brides! Did you all have a lovely weekend? Mr B and I spent a lazy few days at home, doing some 2014 business planning, cooking a delicious roast and cosying up on the sofa with a glass of wine, or two!  With the wintery morning frosts and short days upon us, for me winter has arrived!  As much as I love the traditional colours of winter weddings, whether it be a white & silver winter wonderland, or a red & green Christmas celebration, there’s no rules to say brides have to stick to these palettes!

Today I want to explore some ideas for a different kind of winter wedding. This hot pink & gold colour scheme can take you through from the most dreary of November days to the excitement of New Year and the coldest winter snows.  Stationery can be fun, setting the tone for something sophisticated yet that sparkles, with clean graphics and pink & gold touches.  Fresh, loose floral arrangements and bouquets keep the overall look elegant, with trailing foliage reminiscent of fir garlands.  Nothing says festive to me more than baubles, use at place settings and to decorate your cake in fun colours to add a touch of magic & sparkle.  Add pops of colour to your outfits too – a pink sash, or fuschia headband is just enough to brighten a cold winter’s day.

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.
