Happy Monday friends! We have so much fab content to share this week, and we’re starting off with a beautiful fine art shoot from my friend Louise over at B.LOVED. I love stepping into Louise’s world, which has got more beautiful as the years have gone by and she’s gone from strength to strength as a stylist, and this spring-inspired shoot is a gorgeous example. With a spectacular English venue, soft fabrics, romantic details, and a beautiful corally-blush palette to match the camellias that were abundantly in bloom, and stunning photography by Kate Nielen, I can’t think of a better way to celebrate spring.
We’re back this afternoon with the second part of our recap from The Editorial Wedding. From our talented students’ work earlier you will have had a good idea of the gorgeousness that Louise of b.loved Wedding Design and Styling created for us that day, but now it’s time to share the full shoot from my EdWed partner, Anneli Marinovich Photography. Anneli’s love of colour was so perfect for highlighting Louise’s design – like the ‘Kate Spade meets Elizabeth Messina’ theme, it was a marriage made in heaven. Lou’s inspired idea was to mix bold glitzy graphic prints with soft florals, and to introduce colour gradually through the design. So starting with the set-up of the bridal suite, which has just a little touch of gold, black and white to offset the romantic vintage gown and accessories, it moves into an emerald and gold ceremony area and on into a riot of gorgeous colour at the reception. I love it. In fact, I loved it so much that I’m surprised Louise managed to take any of it home, as I wanted to steal every glass, every invitation, every plate, every glittery peg and tassel to hang up in my house and stare at forever.Read More
I have such a fab shoot to share with you today! I absolutely love a bit of colour, and this styled inspiration, from the awesome Louise of b.loved and EFC Photography, is ALL about colour. And not just in the decor, which has a super fun pop art vibe to it, but in four different, really gorgeous looks perfect for a statement bride. This is the kind of shoot that is a perfect example of why I think inspiration shoots are good for the wedding industry. Sure, you might not reproduce the entire ensemble for your big day, but everywhere you look here, there’s a great idea. Pick one or two, and they’ll really jazz up your wedding with that extra edge of ‘specialness’ (for lack of a better word).Read More
Hello lovelies! Today we’re kicking off a brand new series with the lovely Louise of wedding blog b.loved. You’ll no doubt have heard me mention Louise before, since she’s not only a friend, but a fabulous stylist and fellow blogger, not to mention a SouthBound Bride (see her wedding here)! (She’s also been super nice enough to help out with the blog while I’m away, to make sure all the scheduled posts go out – thanks so much hon!) Lou has excellent taste with her finger on the pulse of the latest wedding trends, plus she’s a huge fan of Pinterest, so her boards are definitely one to follow. I asked her to share her current Top 5 favourite pins to inspire you!
