My Little Corner of Spring

As I woke up this morning it made a wonderful change to be greeted by sunshine streaming in through the gap in my curtains. I could see a peak of bright blue sky through them too, which immediately put me in a good mood for the day ahead.

Ok so it’s not a hot summers day (and yes, I’m very jealous of my Dad & Step Mum currently sunning themselves in the Caribbean!) but after all the recent rain and snow, a cold crisp sunny morning, with the sun shining and not a cloud in sight, is definitely a welcome change and a sign that spring may be on it’s way! It got me onto thinking about all those lucky brides out there that were going to get such beautiful spring sunshine for their wedding day… lucky lucky ladies!

Well, about three hours later, the sun was gone and the clouds had drawn in, but it still didn’t stop my springtime dreaming, so today I wanted to share some of the beautiful spring wedding inspiration out there!

So many fresh spring colours and influences, alongside softer pastel pretties‚Ķ these were several of the influences in creating¬†A Whole Lot of Lovely’s¬†most recent collection of wedding stationery. The Daisy Daisy design range captures the fresh greens and yellows of springtime making it a perfect choice for couples marrying in Spring or Summer.

The soft pretty pastels in my inspiration board are also captured perfectly in my Ribbon & Pearls design range. Pinks and pale lavenders are combined with vintage prints and lace doily motif to create a beautiful collection for couples wanting to add a touch of springtime pastel to their wedding.
