Let’s begin with this stunning cascading bouquet… our amazing b.team florist Liz from Bluesky Flowers and her assistant Sarah from The Flower Bird created an explosion of green and white! Clouds of hydrangea, phlox, veronica and super floaty asparagus fern gathered together to make one massive puff of loveliness!

They also created a cascade of matching foliage and flowers to adorn our cake from the talented Ceri at Olofson Design.  An updated spin on the naked cake that was so popular last year, this cake design uses a thin mask of buttercream to allow the lovely edges of the cake layers to show through.  A light Italian meringue buttercream masked the outside, which also has the benefit of lightening the overall look and keeps the cake moister inside.  Decorated with simple green foliage, artfully placed, it still has real impact without being overly fussy.  To reflect the feeling of lightness and Spring time mood the colours are fresh but can be changed to reflect seasonality, the cake used soft flavours of almond sponge with pistachio and apricot filling.

Catharine at Itty Bitty Bijou created a simple stationery design complete with fern motif in keeping with the light & fresh look. She says

“I loved the delicate foliage and ferns which Louise used in her concept for this look as well as the colour palette of fresh greens with bright white and rustic hints.  I wanted to create a bespoke sketch of the Ferns and Bracken for the Stationery designs to really link in with this key element of the shoot. I took my drawings and with my magical computer graphics skills, I created a small illustration and a pretty pattern. I have included this available as a free Printable too! Using clean, simple fonts let the illustrations stand out but these designs would look great handwritten if you would like to DIY your own invitations, table numbers etc too!”

Louise

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.
