inspiration board #11: moss & twine

Happy Monday everyone! I hope it was a good weekend for you, whether you spent it relaxing or tackling your wedding planning.

Sunday was a miserable grey day, so I spent some time curled up on the sofa catching up on my favourite blogs and wedding glossies with a cuppa, bliss!

Today, I’m sharing beautiful rustic inspiration, perfect for all those outdoor weddings coming up this summer! I’m currently feeling a lot of love for green. To be honest it’s not really a colour I’m usually that keen on, but there’s something soft and lovely about these muted moss greens and neutral colours teamed with a soft ivory or off-white. Mixed with lots of rustic timber and natural twine it creates a really relaxed summery feel, that can be played up or down depending on how casual or formal you want to be. The great thing about this style is that you can DIY a lot of the elements, the whole point is to look handmade so it doesn’t matter if things are a bit wonky or imperfect! A bit of burlap and some twine and you can create beautiful centerpieces, even a simple piece of string adds that final detail to your invite pack. I love the fresia’s used in this bride’s hair, it looks sooo pretty and smells of summer too! I love a bride with flowers in her hair, and a rustic wedding is the perfect setting for a whimsical sprig of flowers.

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.
