inspiration board #23: wedstock

Morning everyone?  How was your weekend?! I hope for all you brides-to-be that all those wedding plans are coming together?

I spent yesterday working on  a very exciting shoot with some amazing and talented weddingy friends of mine!  Thankfully the sun was shining, and I can’t wait to share the results with you soon on these very pages!

Today, I have an extra-special dose of inspiration for all you summer brides.  Last week I sent a little tweet asking if any of you would like a hand with styling or advice for your wedding.  Lovely bride-to-be Jan quickly tweeted back asking for ideas for her festival-themed ‘wedstock’ wedding next year.  What a great idea! I hope you like it Jan!

Ever since the queen of boho, Kate Moss, announced her wedding to Jamie Hince this year, the industry was flooded with ‘festival wedding’ and ‘glasto-chic’ rumours for Kate’s big day.  The reality was actually a rather surprising, and completely gorgeous, combination of rock ‘n roll bride meets boho-chic meets English country garden.

So, I wanted to create a board that captures that laid-back vibe of a festival.  Hand-tied wildflowers bouquets, rustic touches, tipi tents and of course the obligatory wellies!  A golden colour palette, a sunset ceremony with guests seated on hay bales, food served from an array of different vans, all followed by partying the night away to a live band (of course!).  How about VIP pass invites? Although, I’d maybe give the portaloo’s a miss!

Would any of you lovely brides like some inspiration for your big day?  I’m accepting requests, so get in touch and tell me a little bit about your day!

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.
