I met Lucie of Loved by Lucie when styling the UKAWP refresh earlier this year and I’m really excited to hear that she’s finally launched her own event business.  This pretty inspiration shoot from Lucie demonstrates how you can bring unexpected styling to your chosen venue.  Lucie explains “I wanted to create a styled shoot that would inspire brides on how they can create a different type of barn wedding.  Usually the country / barn style celebration continues the informal theme with organic garden style florals and rustic wooden styling details.  But I wanted to show that you can juxtapose an elegant and structured concept against the rural backdrop of a barn for a sophisticated barn wedding.”

I love the use of clean white sparkling linen which really brightens a barn space.

The stationery by one of my favourites Sincerely May, has the delicate quality of hand painted watercolours.  The watercolour trend shows no signs of abating.

I’m also seriously digging these fresh Spring florals, the vibrant purples contrasting with pale pinks is delicious.
