inspiration board #62: peach polka

Morning lovely readers! Just how gorgeous was the sunshine this weekend? It made it all the more pleasant to sit at my desk writing away, light and warmth streaming in the window whilst gathering some pretty inspiration to share with you this week.  I love the sun, don’t you? It makes everything sparkle and sing, it makes me feel happy!

This morning’s inspiration is an idea that’s been in my mind for a while now, the delicate pattern of swiss polka dots are a pretty inclusion in your elegant wedding design.  Then I spotted the new (and might I add completely gorgeous) Millésime Collection from Victoria Mary Vintage and from the delicate dot detail of this blusher veil ‘Peach Polka’ was born.  With the detail soft and small enough not to be overbearing, you can afford to pair the veil with a pretty dress like ‘Elope’ from Sarah Seven (another designer whose collections I am in love with at the moment!), simple and elegant with a modern ballerina style.  Colour-wise, I’d team this look with soft blush, peach and subtle gold hues, perhaps dressing bridesmaids in gorgeous gold dresses, a look that will easily take them through from daytime ceremony to evening reception.  This is an elegant, sophisticated palette, which, with the addition of a few pops of minty green succulents is given a contemporary edge.  For decorations and details, a sheer swiss-dot fabric over a warm neutral table cloth gives a neutral base to add mismatched crockery and crystal glassware.  A touch of lace adds texture and detail, and I’m indulging my love of ribbons with this ballerina-inspired escort card idea from the Queen of wedding ideas, Martha Stewart.  Finally, a gorgeous two-tiered cake decorated with the most dainty of pindot designs, is a clean and simple design to complete the look.

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.
