This morning we’ve been swooning over the most romantic Valentine’s proposal and engagement inspiration from Catharine Noble Photography and Rosy Apple Creations, and if you thought that was beautiful just you wait for this afternoon’s accompanying wedding inspiration!  It’s filled with the most romantic of florals in rich red and romantic pink shades, the most elegant calligraphy stationery and tumbling foliage and ribbons adding a luxurious edge.  All this is contrasted with the relaxed romance of the bride and groom, dressed in their wedding attire yet snuggled beneath oversized knits cinched in for the bride and informal denim and braces for the groom.  We adore.

We used an aged, rustic wooden garden table from the Estate to create our sweetheart table where our couple could steal a few moments together reflecting on their engagement and the future. Set under the wooden pavilion, the table was kept simple but elegant with vintage features such as brass candlesticks and mercury votives, and a nude chiffon fabric runner which added texture and contrasted beautifully against the rustic table. Classic white crockery and gold cutlery added to the elegant, romantic feel and I loved the beautiful pink flutes and crystal glasses.

Katie Laura Flowers created all the stunning florals using plenty of texture and layering up pretty blooms of pink and white Ranunculus along with Avalanche Roses, and stems of Astrantia and Mimosa for a natural vintage feel. Lilac stems added a beautiful light scent, finished off with lots of tumbling lush greenery.

The stationery, created by Gray Starling Designs, carried a painterly watercolour motif which we also followed through to the cake and biscuits created by The Whimsical Cake Company. The watercolour effect added a sense of whimsy and it’s one of my favourite trends emerging for 2015 weddings.

I didn’t want the fashion for the shoot to be too bridal so we chose to have two looks, one more casual before the proposal and a more elegant one after the proposal. Both looks used a tulle skirt paired with oversized belted knitwear to give a cosy wintery feel, and we finished the look with cute on-trend ankle boots. I wanted there to be a subtle but stylish transformation between the two looks and fell in love with the Watters Jacinda gown with its stunning detailing and flowing tulle skirt.



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.
