inspiration board #27: autumn leaves

Good Morning! How was your weekend?  Any wedding related loveliness going on?

I’m feeling back to my old self after being quite poorly last week, and I spent yesterday afternoon in the company of some amazing TWIPS friends who amaze me with their passion and energy, and make me feel so inspired!

Isn’t it lovely to see the sun shining again this morning?  There’s still that telltale chill in the air that tells me it’s most definitely Autumn now.  The kids are back at school, the leaves are falling from the trees and there’s even conkers on the ground, so it’s time to embrace the change in seasons!  What I love most about Autumn is the richness of colour, those deep oranges, golds and browns that give such a feeling of warmth.  Today’s inspiration board captures that warmth in one neat little package, inspired by this beautiful cake creation of Janet Mohapi-Banks, with fiery autumn leaves tumbling leaves tumbling down its sides.  Autumn for me is all about harvest, an abundance of food and colour, and a wedding at this time of year should capture that essence with beautiful jewel tones, and the introduction of berries, leaves and seed pods into the bouquets and arrangements to give that sense of richness.  Gold accents add a touch of opulence and elegance.

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.
