inspiration board #97: rustic mint


It might be a little later than usual, but this week’s inspiration is worth the wait! A dreamy palette of mint, white, and the palest of pale pink add girly romance to this rustic wedding style.  I love the combination of rough, natural textures with floaty chiffon fabrics and satin ribbons blowing in the breeze.  Wooden crates, and timber trays create the perfect backdrop for cloud-like displays of baby’s breath (still loving this resurgence!) combined with succulents, moss and other seasonal white blooms.  I’d also bring in a few herbs, sage, rosemary and mint perhaps to add a heady scent to the arrangements and another memorable detail to your day.  I’ve brought in a touch of pink – perhaps for a more informal wedding a delicate blush dress for the bride, paired with pale mint dresses for her ‘maids? I am totally smitten with this baby’s breath ampersand, perhaps your clever florist could create your monogram to hang in the reception venue, or even at the altar?  I see this look working perfectly for an outdoor or barn wedding, but with a few tweaks it could easily be made more glamorous for a country house wedding, or add a few shells for a beach-side celebration.

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.
