destination wedding inspiration

bright wedding inspiration

There’s nothing like a bold punch of colour to brighten up your Monday morning!  So this week’s inspiration board is inspired by the frankly tropical weather we’ve had over the past few days – from brilliant blue skies to spectacular thunder & lightening storms it’s felt more equatorial than northern European for most of the week!  I’m not suggesting this is the perfect British wedding scheme – although at a venue like Kew Gardens this could look totally rad!

For a destination wedding – I’m thinking the beautiful remote beaches of Hawaii or Bali – this is the perfect palette.  Don’t be afraid of colour – mix unusual, tropical blooms with gold for a totally luxe look.  I love the idea of paper tassels fluttering in the breeze – a super easy way to bring your own but of DIY to a destination venue! But most of all with this one, you’ve got to have fun with floral crowns and pineapple place settings all adding to the ‘totally tropical’ taste!

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.
