Beautiful brides and their blooms

Hello b.loved readers, Anneli here! I hope you’re having a great week! Today in my blog post, I’d love to share a few of my favourite bride & bloom combinations from 2012. Each of these very special brides chose their bouquet & wedding day look with a lot of care and attention (just like you if you’re a bride-to-be) so I thought I’d share a few of these images to inspire you! I love shooting little details like the flowers, dress & shoes and when you add these details to the bridal portraits, they usually make for lovely inspiration mood boards or album lay outs! Find out more about these beautiful brides & their wedding day style below:

Elen had an elegant Autumn wedding with a navy blue & green country theme and I loved the variety in her bouquet by Love Lily. (Full wedding here)

Martmarie chose peach, dusty pink and neutral tones for her chic South African farm wedding at The Oaks Estate. Her beautiful bouquet was put together by Marianne – venue owner. (Full Wedding here and here)

Victoria’s wedding day style was relaxed and rustic with vintage touches (from her dress to her shoes, to the flowers) and Scarlet & Violet created the perfect mixed rose bouquet for her. (Full Wedding here).

Gemma wanted lots of pastel colour to complement her whimsical wedding day and her bouquet by Dawn Jennings matched the colours of the bridesmaids dresses (blue, purple, peach, green and yellow) and also included vintage buttons in the arrangement. (Full wedding here)

Lauren’s wedding style was soft & romantic and her peonies & rose bouquet suited her perfectly. Aziatics created her bouquet. (Full Wedding here) and she absolutely loved it!

Harshna’s garden party wedding day was filled with lots of bold & beautiful purples and pinks – perfect for a fun-filled Summer wedding and her bouquet by Andrea Litherland from Stanmore Flower Lounge was just gorgeous (and smelled gorgeous too!) – Full Wedding here.

Sally’s winter wedding day style was simple and very elegant and her white tulip bouquet complemented her look perfectly. All flowers for the day by Lavender Green Flowers. (Full Wedding here).

Helen wanted a winter wonderland feel to her special day at Wasing Park and she definitely succeeded. Her beautiful bouquet by Cherubs Floral Design was perfectly wintery & warm (Full Wedding here).

Rebecca’s wedding look was very romantic & dreamy especially wearing her Jenny Packham wedding gown and her informal bouquet included succulents & splashes of purple – absolutely stunning work by The White Horse Flower Company. (Full Wedding here).

Last but definitely not least, Anna celebrated her country vintage South African wedding on a farm and her beautiful bouquet (by a friend of the family) included a gorgeous Protea as centre piece – just as beautiful & unique as Anna! (Full Wedding here)

I hope you’ve enjoyed my little bride & bloom post – make sure you check back next month for my next blog post and pop over to the blog to see what I’ve been up to.





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.
