Tales from the Sea

Good morning wedding lovers!  Do you remember the movie ‘The Little Mermaid’? It was one of my absolute favourites growing up, and I’m sure I drove my mum mad with the constant humming of ‘Under the Sea’ and other Disney tunes!  Perhaps this was the start of my dream for a beach wedding, the sand […]


A Blossoming Romance

Sometimes I receive submissions so breathtakingly beautiful that I have to actually pinch myself to check that it’s real and not some figment of my imagination.  One of the biggest blessings for any blogger is to share the most beautiful inspiration out there, and inspire you to incorporate some of the ideas into your own […]


A Modern Fairytale

I know you’ve all dreamed of being a modern day Princess. And if there’s one chance to really go for it, it has to be on your wedding day! Alongside a team of creative wedding professionals, UK photographer Tatum Reid had a vision to bring to life her dream fairytale wedding, and to inspire you to […]


City Chic meets Urban Style

Calling all city brides! If you’re looking to create a stylish wedding in the city with an urban vibe, today’s inspiration shoot from Essex Wedding Beauty and Photography by Tarik has the perfect balance of city chic and raw urban style.  Set in the slick interiors of The Andaz Hotel, and the raw, gritty surrounding streets […]


The New Pink

There’s been a quiet revolution in weddings over the past couple of years, with tried and tested pink colour schemes being replaced with new shades and combinations.  One of the most popular hues to burst onto the scene is peach, from soft pastel peach to punchy coral, this is one colour you’re really loving.  Stepping […]


Cute as Candy

Happy Valentine’s Day lovelies! Have you received a card from a secret admirer? Or a wonderful gift from your fiancé perhaps?!  As my gift to you today I’m sharing this cute-as-candy styled shoot which I created last year.  It’s the perfect mix of saccharin-sweet inspiration and retro fun to sweeten up your V-Day!


The New Boho

The Perfect Chemistry

I love sharing pretty inspiration but every now and then something lands in my inbox which is not conventionally pretty – like today’s science-inspired shoot designed & styled by Jennifer Laura Design.  Set in an old stamp factory the vibe is more old-school-cool than urban romance, with it’s industrial backdrop and science-lab details.  It’s great […]

Yesterday on b.loved England met Africa, but today we’re sticking firmly in these green and pleasant lands with an editorial shoot from wedding planner Caroline Gould and photographer Ross Dean.  A super elegant and stylish take on a classic English country wedding, this shoot is bound to inspire and delight those of you planning your […]

Whimsical Woodland Wedding Inspiration

Good morning lovelies! Today we’ve come over all rustic, with some gorgeous woodland wedding inspiration from Bloom Wedding and Eppel Fotografie.   Way back since 2012 one of my trend predictions has been outdoor weddings, it’s been a slow burn (thanks mostly to ridiculous red-tape stuff) but I’m sticking to my guns and saying this […]


Winter Rose Wedding Inspiration

Who doesn’t love fire places, a beautiful set table, hot cocoa and pretty candles?  We certainly do at b.loved HQ, so when this gorgeous winter-inspired shoot landed in my inbox I couldn’t resist.  The pretty palette of blush & gold is the perfect antidote to the frosty chill of winter, a romantic option for a […]


A Breeze of Tiffany’s

Morning b.lovelies!  You know, one of the most exciting parts of being a blog editor is being able to share inspiration from all over the world.  There’s a few places well known for their inspirational weddings; the UK, USA, South Africa and increasingly New Zealand and Australia, but there’s one tiny country which I’ve noticed […]

A Modern Day Miss Dior

A Midsummer Night’s Dream Styled Shoot

I love receiving styled shoot submissions, and today’s is extra-special!  The coordinator and stylist for this shoot is not a wedding professional looking to add to her portfolio, or gain PR, but a bride-to-be who simply fell in love with weddings and the fabulous suppliers who supported her as she planned her day.  I’m not […]


The Swan Bride

Such whimsical, feminine, romantic inspiration coming up today ladies!  This styled shoot from Rebecca Douglas and The Wedding Dolls is a little bit different as it’s not set in a grand mansion house or manicured gardens, but a cosy local pub {albeit a very beautiful one!}.  They wanted to show those of you planning a […]
