#160: all that glitters

orange, gold, glitter wedding colour palette

Morning lovely ones!  After a somewhat disappointing weekend (hello British summer!) today I’m pumping up the colour with this bright & breezy inspiration board.  Long-time b.loved readers will know I have a bit of a crush on orange weddings, not least because my own wedding back in 2011 featured this love-it-or-hate-it hue!  It’s not a colour I’d pick often, but with the right setting and the right balance of colours (in this case lashings of gold glitter – you can’t go wrong!) this somewhat scary shade can result in a rather gorgeous w-day look. And yes, I do say so myself.

On a hot summer’s day welcome guests with a refreshing citrus cocktail, before sitting in the sunshine for a gorgeous outdoor ceremony decorated with warm red, orange and pink blooms.  Poppies, proteas, roses and dahlia’s are all available in this colour palette – add a few succulents and some silvery green foliage to break up the colour.  The trend for sparkle isn’t going anywhere soon – so embrace the glitter with golden linens, bridesmaids dresses and details!  You don’t need a hot Californian desert or African sunshine to make this colour palette work; a late summer’s day here in the UK will suffice!  Add heaps of fairylights for a warm, romantic glow, then sit back and relax as they do their job transforming your venue into a shimmering, golden masterpiece!

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.
