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.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
