inspiration board #3 : safari style

Happy Monday ladies (& gents)! Let’s start the week with something a little different, this inspiration board is inspired by my love of all things Africa!  Safari-chic is bang on trend right now, the high street is full of khaki dresses and safari shirts.  I just love this scheme for a relaxed, stylish wedding.  Keep everything super simple and let your surroundings create the atmosphere.  Imagine exchanging vows under a baobab tree as the African sun sets over the dusty plains, lions roaring in the distance .  An intimate reception held in the mess tent, lanterns and candles lighting the routes through camp.  Utterly romantic, and totally unique!

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.
