#172: Shibori

Indigo Blue Dip Dye Shibori Wedding Inspiration

I love love love this board! Blue is set to be one of the hottest colours for 2015, with Pantone selecting a number of shades for their Spring predictions.  I’ve picked a selection of warm blues with a hint of green for this board to tie in with the ‘shibori’ theme.  Shibori, or tie dye is an update on the ombre and watercolour trends of the past few seasons, and I love it because it’s quick, easy and totally do-able for the DIY bride too!  There are many methods to creating shibori, resulting in so many different patterns and shades of colour it’s a really fun trend to play with – think stamps, patterns, and details in shades of blue and smoky grey to tie it all together.

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.


Today’s beautiful wedding inspiration shoot made me have a realisation: there just
