sunday sweetness #17

Hello & good morning! Well, we made it to the end of the first week of 2012 pretty much intact! Does anyone else feel like it’s gone so quickly?  All that catching up from the holidays has made the last few days whizz by and I can’t believe it’s Sunday again already!  Perhaps it has something to do with the amazing content that’s been appearing on some of my favourite blogs this week?

This year Sunday Sweetness has had a little refresh!  I’ll be looking at my favourite posts of the week from around the wedding blogging world, including inspiration, real weddings and even something for the lovely wedding pro’s.  It’s even got it’s own category over in the right hand sidebar, so you can stay up to date with my weekly faves more easily.

So here we go ~


Elizabeth from Bridal Musings shared her inspiration for a Chalkboard Wedding in black, white and charcoal, and she couldn’t resist throwing in a few beautiful blush touches either!  Pink and grey is one of my favourite colour combinations, and I love this chic and unique take on the scheme.  It would be a great choice for a wedding held at a school venue, or a bride who is a teacher!

An opulent and elegant Rustic Boho inspiration shoot on Adore by Chloe is full of stunning ideas and details for a late summer or early autumn wedding.  Rich purple and green and a hint of red make a gorgeous warm scheme, and the bride’s floral headpiece is simply amazing!

Something to cheer up a miserable grey day from Before the Big Day, Beth and Nik’s bright and cheerful Californian wedding is full of colour pop florals and clear blue skies.

It’s no secret that I love pretty much everything from The Pretty Blog, and this wedding is absolutely no exception.  A relaxed and homely wedding in the African bushveld with animal print, african touches, a beautiful bride and safari-suited groom exchanging vows in a dry riverbed. Wow!



Kat at Rock n Roll Bride introduced A Most Curious Wedding Fair, an alternative vintage event being hosted in Nottingham in February and London in March.  Click here for more information and dates, and to see the amazing promotional shoot for the fair!

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.
