As much as we swoon over the details, we know sometimes simplicity is key!  When this darling maternity shoot from photographer Susan Arnold landed in our inboxes it was the minimal – but perfectly selected – details that won us over.  We love mum-to-be’s gorgeous wrap dress and summer hat, a beautiful way to keep cool and stylish with a growing bump in the summer sun!

From Susan..

I had taken family photos of Rosanna, her fiancé Dan & her gorgeous daughter Layla the previous year… I was delighted when she told me she was expecting again and would like some maternity photos. Rosanna chose the beautiful Ripley Green in Ripley, Surrey as the location as it is a special place for her, not least because this is were her & Dan’s wedding reception took place… We met on a beautiful summers morning for the shoot. Rosanna looked stunning in her CoralieBeatrix dress and H&M hat and had that wonderful pregnancy glow to boot…I loved this relaxed and beautiful maternity session!


After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
