I can hardly believe it’s August already, July just seems to have flown by. Such a lot has happened over the last few weeks, the most exciting thing that I wanted to share with you was the opportunity that came up to work with b.loved. For those of you who don’t know, b.loved is a blog created by stylist and wedding lover Louise Beukes. It’s crammed full of gorgeous inspiration for all things wedding related, if you haven’t checked it out yet you definitely should.

Louise mentioned that she was planning a styled shoot at the end of July and was looking for someone to create the stationery. The theme was going to be Rustic Romance and the overall look inspired by the soft haziness of English summers, with a muted palette of pastels and soft creams. Needless to say I didn’t take much persuading, this was such a great opportunity for Oyster & Pearl, not only to work with b.loved, but also to create a design around such a beautiful theme. Louise created a ‘look book’ which acted as brief and was so inspiring that the design itself was a piece of cake to create. It was such a fun project to work on and I can’t wait to share the photos with you. In the meantime though, here’s a sneak peek at some of the behind the scenes shots from the day.

The venue was the stunning Barnsley House in the Cotswolds and The Rose Shed created the flowers. Made by Marie Green was responsible for that delicious-looking cake, and of course the styling was down to the very talented Louise. Hannah Duffy took the fabulous photos, and if you look closely at the top right image you will see a glimpse of the stationery. I totally fell in love with this design so I’ve decided to launch it as a new custom range. It will be available to order very soon, so keep an eye out for it on the website.

b.loved also very kindly featured Oyster & Pearl Design on their blog last week which you can read here. http://www.blovedweddings.com/welcome-oyster-pearl-design
