inspiration board #87: nautical new england

Happy Monday lovelies! How was your weekend? With rain and wind battering most of the country, perhaps you’ve been curled up cosy inside and working on your wedding plans? Or maybe you braved the rain to start searching for a venue, or wedding dress shopping? Whatever stage of your planning, I hope you are enjoying every minute!

Today’s inspiration comes from our new home, which is set on a pretty New England inspired estate full of beautiful The Hampton’s style homes and even more beautiful interiors!  Whilst researching decorating ideas for our perfect home, I discovered so many pretty ideas for a New England-style wedding with nautical touches and wanted to share some today! There are so many pretty seaside venues in the UK where this look would be so dreamy.

From the pretty white timber-clad chapel, navy and white stripes and natural driftwood and rope details create a classic wedding style with a nautical edge.  I love the rope-wrapped vases and table number holder, for a cute touch!  And how about an old oar as a fun alternative to the guest book? It would look beautiful hung on the wall in your marital home.  Keep flowers fresh and classic, with white hydrangeas and blue-centred anemones keeping the look simple and natural.  For you and your groom keep the look classic with a preppy twist, a pretty lace or classic ivory ballgown for the bride, and a navy suit with preppy striped bow-tie for the groom completes 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.
