Claire Pettibone Designer Weekend

Claire Pettibone S2013 Collection

Oh my, I think I’m still recovering from the fabulousness of yesterday’s styled shoot.  This is one you really don’t want to miss!  And if that wasn’t enough for one week, today’s announcement is about to add to the excitement!

At b.loved HQ we’re huge fans of the utterly romantic, bohemian designs created by Claire Pettibone – she’s ALL about the back detail! – and we’re pretty sure you’d love to get your hands on one of her beautiful designs for your big day too.  Blackburn Bridal, one of the UK’s leading independent bridal boutiques based in South East London, is hosting an exclusive Claire Pettibone trunk show next weekend from Friday 6th June to Sunday 8th June 2014.

Blackburn Bridal owner, Russell Blackburn says:

“Claire Pettibone’s dresses are, quite simply, the epitome of beauty and romance, and that’s why we are such big fans here at Blackburn Bridal. When we discovered her back in 2006 she was a breath of fresh air in a bridal world where everything looked the same. Claire is inspired by bygone eras and other worlds, and her gowns, which feature gentle colour and the most exquisite embroidery and embellishments, are a true reflection of Claire’s imagination and creativity.  Claire Pettibone brides are free-spirited and true to themselves. They want a wedding dress that combines originality with timelessness, but most importantly they love Love! Which is what a wedding is all about after all.”

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.
