#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.

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.
