Behind the Scenes: Muted Pastels + Neon Pink for the HiveNorth Launch in Manchester

On Saturday we gathered for special event – the launch party and workshop of HiveNorth! Over the last two years I’ve been the Editor of B.LOVED Blog and Louise Beukes has been transforming brands and businesses across the wedding world with the B.LOVED Hive! It’s a supportive community, a network of passionate wedding suppliers with regular meetups, events and workshops. Being based in Manchester myself – I was super excited to hear that we were adding a new location to the B.LOVED Hive, and even more so meet the HiveNorth Ambassador, Elle of The Artful Event Company

Here’s a little snippet of what we got up to at the weekend! We used an industrial chic space at Leaf Manchester, decorating the tables with centrepieces of on trend colours – muted pastels by one of the North’s coolest floral designers – Sass Flower. Elle added the prettiest name cards from By Moon and Tide Calligraphy, along with candles for both a beautiful Gardenia fragrance and to add to the sophisticated atmosphere. It never ceases to amaze me the magic that candles bring to the table – literally!

Everyone loved our statement backdrop by The Word Is Love adorned with more of Sass Florals designs to bring all the colours together – oh and and it’s big light up neon pink heart! It looked fantastic, especially for group selfies too! In between getting to know one another and motivating goal setting, we enjoyed coffee, a delicious lunch and pretty biscuits and macarons by Little Button Bakery.
