Rustic Italian Mediterranean Wedding Inspiration

Good morning brides to be! There’s a lot of excitement at b.loved HQ this morning as our Real Life Bride Danielle prepares to marry her fiancé Christiaan today!  As you read this over your morning coffee I’ll already be at the beautiful Coombe Lodge in Somerset styling their beautiful day with a team of fab suppliers.  I really can’t wait to share this one, you can catch up on Danni’s story here.

Back to your Monday morning inspiration, and this week’s all about soft and subtle. There’s just something so elegant and refined about this look, filled with silvery olive branches  and the most simple of details!  Foliage is so underestimated when it comes to wedding flowers, but without the expense of roses and blooms taking up your budget you can achieve so much! I adore the loose and organic bouquet, simply spilling with olive branches, fruit still attached, a sprig on the place settings and decorating the wedding car with abundance! I’m dreaming of a Mediterranean olive grove, complete with infused olive oil favours and olive leaf confetti littering the ground!

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.
