#100: aqua ombre inspiration with a hint of gold


Morning brides-to-be! Wow, what a wet and miserable few days! Perfect for curling up with a cuppa and your favourite wedding inspiration, which is exactly what I did this weekend.  Perfection.

Do you remember last week I told you about the real-life inspiration boards I styled for London Wedding Emporium? Well, this is number two (of three) a combination of four current trends; emerald, chevrons, ombré and gold!  It’s rather appropriate, for my 100th inspiration board, that this one incorporates my favourite aqua tones :) This palette is certainly one for our contemporary and romantic brides, pairing softly fading emerald and aqua colours with a crisp white backdrop and a pretty touch of sparkle.  The addition of textured timbers, succulents and wispy foliage adds a relaxed edge, while satin, silk and gilded details keep it fresh and elegant.  Always a sucker for details, I love the hidden touch of sparkle in the liner of these envelopes, and the beautiful aqua coloured plates with a touch of gold in the place settings.  I’m also smitten with the ombré tumblers, perfect for serving a pre-dinner cocktail or two!  Keep deeper tones to a minimum, perhaps emerald shoes for your bridesmaids, or a splash of colour for your fingers and toes?  As always the cake is an opportunity to have fun, just how delicious does this ombré buttercream creation look?

And here’s how I brought it to life, using a crepe ribbon backdrop, pompoms (have you noticed yet I have a mini-obsession with these!?) and a selection of beautiful items from my fellow exhibitors at LWE.

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.
