destination wedding inspiration

#162: paradise

There’s nothing like a bold punch of colour to brighten up your Monday morning!  So this week’s inspiration board is inspired by the frankly tropical weather we’ve had over the past few days – from brilliant blue skies to spectacular thunder & lightening storms it’s felt more equatorial than northern European for most of the […]

orange, gold, glitter wedding colour palette

#160: all that glitters

Morning lovely ones!  After a somewhat disappointing weekend (hello British summer!) today I’m pumping up the colour with this bright & breezy inspiration board.  Long-time b.loved readers will know I have a bit of a crush on orange weddings, not least because my own wedding back in 2011 featured this love-it-or-hate-it hue!  It’s not a […]

Mint & neutrals wedding inspiration

#159: mint velvet

Mint is one of my favourite wedding colours, it’s pretty and girly without being saccharine, and can be used in combination with lots of different colours.  This week we’re working with classic neutrals to create an understated wedding look.  With a simple palette (using just two or three colours) you need texture to bring the […]

Black, blush & gold wedding palette

#156: ballet & black

Growing up, I’m pretty sure every girl I knew took ballet classes, and although most of us gave them up years ago there’s still something utterly enchanting about the ballet that makes it the perfect inspiration for a wedding.  I’ve created ballet-inspired boards before, but this time  I’ve added lots more black and touches of […]


#155: Oil Painting

Happy Monday my loves! By now I’m sure you know I’m very much a pastels girl, you can give me light & pretty every day of the week and I’d never, ever get bored.  But recently I’ve been falling in love with deep, rich hues. The tones of the most beautiful oil paintings, capturing the […]

#153: pearlescent

What a stunning weekend! I turned the music up, opened the doors & worked with the summer breeze and sunshine flooding in. And I even had time for a little break in the garden. Bliss!

#149: Pared Back Luxury

Pared back luxury – one of 2014′s biggest trends – is a move away from lots of hand-crafted, personalised details and towards a few beautiful, luxurious ones with just as much sentiment.  We saw a touch of this last week in the Frambroise et Menthe board I created for bride-to-be Stephanie, and in Chenel & […]

#147: Monochrome & Sparkle

Morning my lovelies! This week I’m breaking out the glitter, because there’s nothing more glamorous than a monochrome wedding with a generous sprinkling of sparkle, right?  For this look I’ve softened the harsh monochrome contrasts with a touch of blush, a hint in your bouquets and flowers and pretty maids dresses is just enough.  Add […]
