inspiration board #91: pared back romance


Good morning brides-to-be!  How did you spend your weekend? Perhaps you snuggled on the sofa pouring over the latest wedding magazines searching for the perfect inspiration?  Well, don’t forget Monday’s are inspiration days here on b.loved, with a new look every week, and nearly 100 boards in our archives there’s sure to be something that suits your style. And if not just send me a little email explaining a little bit about you and your plans, and I’ll create a beautiful inspiration board, just for you!

Today’s inspiration is a little bit classic and a whole lot romantic, with a 2013 twist.  This year, we’re going to see a more refined and understated look in wedding design, stripping back some of the details and making the day about the things that really matter.  Using a pretty palette of pastels, blush pink and  lavender tones with the palest aqua, and the most beautiful relaxed, rustic florals, the whole look is simple and romantic.  Floral motifs echo throughout the day, from the ruffles on the brides beautiful shoes (how in love with these am I?!), on the plates and daintily decorating the sweetest naked cake.

We’ll be looking at the pared-back trend in more detail later this week, so check back on Friday!

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.

Black is back!

It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of South African wedding design; the creativity
