styled shoot: modern country inspiration

A little switch up in the schedule today, with some gorgeous table inspiration from Austin Wedding Photographer Hyde Park Photography, with styling by boutique event planners Liv By Design and flowers by Stems Floral.  Set by a private creek in Austin, Texas, the shoot was inspired by gorgeous spring lilacs and green viburnum, with a pretty purple and green palette, and soft Southern style.  I love the use of modern white ceramic vases bringing structure and height to the display, and contrasted with pretty white crockery and vintage glassware place settings.  The style of table and chairs is lovely, something you might expect to find in a farmhouse kitchen, with a well-loved timber top and elegant yet rustic white dining chairs, with the chandelier hanging overhead adding a touch of country-chic.

Gorgeous, right?! Thank you to all the talented suppliers who collaborated on putting this pretty, inspirational shoot together.  A chandelier hanging over an outdoor wedding table? Hell, yeh!

Before I go today, there’s just 24 hours left to complete the b.loved reader survey which closes tomorrow! Thank you to all for your responses and feedback so far, and remember one lucky participant will win the  Handmade Wedding Book!

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.
