Lavender & Honey: The Decor

Lavender & honey wedding table setting with bee motif

Hey wedding lovers! This morning I’m on cloud nine after an amazing response to the launch of my new business Louise Beukes Styling yesterday!  As the UK’s only stylist dedicated to creating stunning editorial images for the wedding industry, as well as lifestyle businesses, I’m so excited to help some of my favourite brands create beautiful, inspirational images.  Plus I’ll be taking on a very limited number of weddings in the UK & overseas each year. If you’d like to find out more click here to request a pretty info pack.

It seems rather appropriate then today that I get to show off some of my styling with our latest Style Guide! This month we’ve been inspired by mid-summer with a modern take on a rustic lavender & honey theme, a hint of the Mediterranean and countryside style.  Oh my, just wait and see what the have created for you…

On the table I used a gorgeous thick linen runner over a subtle white damask tablecloth, country-style plates and pretty ivory handled cutlery and a matching napkin.  The wooden honey dripper makes such a cute favour – especially when paired with a sprig of scented lavender and tied with a bee-motif cotton ribbon!

For our rustic centrepiece, Liz from Bluesky Flowers filled a rusty urn with yellow freesia, lilac sweet peas and scabious, purple aquilegia, lavender, pale pink sweet avalanche roses and asparagus fern.  The freesia and lavender make this display smell as beautiful as it looks, while the trailing asparagus fern adds a really authentic countryside touch.  Just imagine a beautiful countryside venue with views over the lavender fields…. move over Tuscany and Provence, there’s plenty of choice right here in the UK! We love Hitchen Lavender Fields, just add a tipi tent!

Love this look? Pop back next Tuesday for the next instalment!

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.
