Indigo Ikat Beach Wedding Ideas

#158: ocean blues

blue beach wedding ideas new england style

Morning my loves! Did you all have a wonderful weekend? I took a few days off to spend some much-needed time off relaxing with family over from South Africa, hosting BBQ’s in the garden and dining alfresco by the river, glorious! Now the house is quiet and empty again, b.loved HQ is returning to a hive of activity!

These lazy days and sunshine have left me dreaming of beautiful beach weddings, so this week’s inspiration board is a bit of an indulgence! I love the sophisticated shades of inky blues, the perfect compliment to an ocean backdrop.  Driftwood signs and rustic florals mix with hand-dyed prints, dip-dyed linens and seersucker suits add a stylish but relaxed vibe.  I am totally in love with mussel shell details – such elegant simplicity!  A beach wedding doesn’t have to mean destination either – how about the gorgeous Gallivant or stylish Scarlett to whet your appetite for a coastal celebration right here in the UK?

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.
