I’m super excited to introduce you to today’s pinfluencer, because if you want an example of a blogger with exquisite taste, then Lena is your girl. If Audrey Hepburn had a wedding blog, I think it would be just like hers. Every week she picks a colour scheme and then showcases a real wedding and matching shoes, flowers, paper and (yum) cocktails, which is such a pleasure to read. So it’s a blog to follow for sure, but also a pinner to stalk – her boards are beautifully curated collections of loveliness. Today, the lovely lady has agreed to share her current favourites – thanks so much Lena!
I’ve never been one for trends, so the recent return of timeless weddings (thank you, Duchess of Cambridge!) is an absolute delight for me. What I love best about them is that they never go out of style!
This wedding, featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, was actually what got me blogging. It was photographed at least six years ago, but a table set with family china, heirloom silver and beautiful flowers will always look stunning.
This gown, complete with pockets, pleating and one big bow, is perfection!
A traditionalist through and through, I can’t resist peonies, hydrangeas and sweet peas in shades of pink and white!
Despite my Greek heritage, I’ve never visited – and a honeymoon seems like the perfect time to book a first class flight! I’d plan a stop in Athens before at least a week of island hopping!
Lena’s wedding advice:
Be authentic. I’m clearly a traditionalist when it comes to weddings, but that’s also true of my clothing and home; silver champagne buckets won’t be out of place when I tie the knot because I pulled ours out last Saturday! Use your real life as inspiration for your wedding and it will be as beautiful as it is authentic.
