#127: shades of the sea


Good morning readers! I’m back!! Did you miss me at all?  I’m pretty sure you didn’t even notice I was gone with the doing such a fab job with the takeover last week!  I may have been away from b.loved HQ, but it doesn’t mean I stopped working. Oh no.  Over the past week I’ve been reviewing some of South Africa’s top honeymoon spots, I can’t wait to share!! We ventured from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth along the coastline, taking in some breathtaking views (ok, it wasn’t ALL work!!) so I thought today I’d share a little coastal wedding inspiration.

With cool aqua shades of the sea and touches of sandy colours forming the main palette, this is a clean and crisp beach wedding look.  It’s brought up to date with a subtle nod to the ombré trend, driftwood signage and simple but effective details.  These white starfish make the perfect placecard-turned-wedding-favour, and I love the subtle incorporation of coral into this pretty bridal bouquet.  For me, no beach wedding is complete without sheer white fabrics billowing gently in the breeze, either as a chuppa or canopy, or simply torn strips of fabric tied to poles lining the aisle for a castaway vibe. Blissful.

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.
