Morning lovelies! Have you ever heard me, or a photographer mention the ‘beautiful light’ of an engagement session or wedding, and wondered what on earth we’re on about? Light is so important in photography, it can change the mood of an image in an instant, from dull and flat to fresh, and clean and oh-so-beautiful. Photographer Debs Ivelja is a great artist of light, so when I spotted this dreamy engagement shoot on St Ives beach (which is known for it’s amazing light) I just had to share it with you.

So the light, the soft breeze and the love makes Cat & James’ engagement shoot one of the most dreamy, calm and serene set of images I’ve been lucky enough to share on b.loved. Their sweet smiles and easy way with each other is just perfect.

He organised a surprise trip to Stockholm, and after a lovely weekend he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him on the balcony of our beautiful hotel, all lit up with fairy lights and overlooking the harbour.

We are getting married in a gorgeous barn near Worcester. It’ll be a small (ish!) ceremony with close friends and family. The dress took a little while to find, but its all sorted now and the suits are sorted too. We have a lovely wedding photographer – Debs Ivelja, and are lucky to have family friends doing our cake and flowers. So pretty much all of the big stuff is sorted, just the table plans and some decorative bits to finalise! We are very excited and can’t wait for the day!

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.
