Morning ladies! How was your weekend? It’s been a mix of work and play at b.loved HQ, as today I’m off to the White Gallery to discover the latest bridal collections coming to the UK, catch up with industry friends & get some time out of the studio!

Today’s inspiration board is a reader request from Stephanie, who’s getting married at the beautiful Hotel Endsleigh in Devon this Autumn.  She is tying the knot in an intimate ceremony with just 25 guests, and described her vision for the day as simple and elegant with a touch of countryside.  Being French, with an English groom, she also wanted some ideas to bring in some French touches without being too clichéd!  The hotel has an array of pretty interiors, and the most stunning mint green reception room with a really relaxed, rustic vibe which is where the inspiration started.  Stephanie mentioned a white, neutral and green palette perhaps with a touch of raspberry, which I have translated into a soft mint green, greyed jade and neutral tones with touches of the berry colours to add warmth to suit the time of year.  Wooden tables and benches, antique French linens and simple place settings would be in keeping with the rustic vibe, with loose and organic floral arrangements filled with foliage, neutral flowers and touches of pink.  The subtle French influence comes in the form of a cheese table, artisan breads with berries and figs displayed on pretty antique trays, wooden boards and glass cloches for guests to help themselves.  She could give favours in sweet linen bags, with messages stamped in French too!

I hope you like it Stephanie!

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.

Thank you very much Louise. I love it and I’m really impressed as how you are able to transform a few lines in an email into a real atmosphere that matches my unexpressed thoughts. Perfect interpretation of my brief about “subtle French touches” too. Many many thanks.
