Inspirational Wedding Styling – The LoveLuxe Launch

LOVE Letters by Pocketful of Dreams - LoveLuxe Launch

I was incredibly honoured to be invited to the LoveLuxe launch party last Wednesday. The party took place in the Orangery at the stunning Bristol wedding venue Goldney Hall, Clifton, on a beautiful sunny afternoon. The event was to celebrate the launch of the new blog, LoveLuxe, which brings together the best bits of inspirational wedding styling and party planning, founded by the truly amazing Rosie of Rosie Parsons Photography.

The aim of the party was not only to celebrate the launch, but it was also a styled inspirational shoot and networking event. A team of amazing wedding industry professionals got together to create individually styled tables and areas around the orangery and garden, that filled the area with grandeur and prettiness (every girl’s dream!).

As well as the beautifully styled tables, there were also three gorgeous models in bridal wear from Kate Walker Bridal, and lots of lovely wedding professionals who came to celebrate. We were also treated to delicious canapés courtesy of Foster Event Catering (I devoured three of the scrummy mini ice-cream cones, but don’t tell anyone!).

Buttonhole Mood Board


Today our wedding mood board is to give you inspiration when organising your buttonholes for the groom and your male bridal party members. Traditionally a buttonhole would be a flower from the bride’s bouquet, but it doesn’t have to be. We have found some great ideas for buttonholes, including golf tees and spider web designs. You could also make your own buttonholes if you are feeling creative. Make a statement with your buttonholes!
