mint, teal, peach, coral, beach seaside wedding mood board ideas

Morning you lovely things! Did you all have the most wonderful weekend?  Mr B and I ventured down to the sunny south-west to visit a fab new venue (more to come soon!), roof down, music blaring and our shoulders catching a lovely tan.  Bliss!

I don’t know about you, but this heatwave given me a feeling of perpetual summer. I don’t think I’ve worn anything other than maxi’s since at least the beginning of June!  And I’m still inspired by all things summer-y when it comes to wedding ideas, so this week I’m bringing you another of my fave wedding combos.  Seaglass and coral are brought together for some oh-so-sophisticated-but-slightly-boho beach wedding inspiration! I’m thinking a barefoot bride in the most whimsical of peach tulle gowns, and relaxed beach-y details brought together with elegance and style.  I adore the idea of a simple white canopy for a touch of shade as you say your vows, bleached coral details (use resin repro’s to be environmentally-friendly) topping the cake and dotted between vintage bottles filled with peach & coral flowers for a pop of colour.  Finish with storm lanterns filled with candles for a romantic glow as the sun sets, as your guests enjoy cocktails on the beach surrounded by shimmering lights.

If you’re planning a beach wedding let us know (and I want an invite!) or find more ideas here.

navy & coral wedding party

I always find it lovely when couples are able to find a wedding venue that doesn’t just tick the boxes of budget, location and service, but when it has an extra-special meaning too.  Alisa & Dermot tied the knot on his family farm in South Africa, nestled in the Stellenbosch mountains with stunning views of the surrounding countryside.   With guests travelling from all over the world to celebrate their marriage (Alisa is from New Zealand) it was the perfect place for them to bring their families together.  They chose a classic navy scheme with a pop of coral – picked up perfectly in the flowers using local flowers & foliage.  Alisa’s gorgeous illusion neck Pronovias dress may be one of the most well-travelled I know – being purchased in London, taken for fittings in Amsterdam (where they now live) and worn in Cape Town before being flown home with Alisa’s parents to New Zealand!  The glorious scenery, pretty details and romance of their day was captured by b.loved favourite Cheryl McEwan.
