WEDDINGS

A WEDDING INDUSTRY REVOLUTION

I’m super excited and super nervous to write this post.  Today I get to launch a project I’ve been working on for months, but to make it work I need your help…

So deep breath, here goes!

I feel incredibly blessed to be celebrating five years in the wedding industry this year.  Taking B.LOVED from start up to award-winning blog, I’ve experienced the highs and lows of running your own business. I’ve built up a fabulous network of creative individuals and friends along the way, but there’s also been times it has been hard, frustrating and incredibly lonely.

This was never more true than last year, when my world was turned upside down and I began to question everything about working in weddings. I was even close to giving up my entire business, when I decided to share my story with some of my industry friends.

Their response was one I never expected; I wasn’t the only one struggling.

I realised we’re all guilty of creating a false impression of success, while wondering how we’re going to pay the bills at the end of the month. I wanted to do something about it.

After plenty of soul searching, discussions and advice from my wedding industry friends I realised we all need the same thing; a place to meet, a place to learn, a place to thrive.

It’s called the B.LOVED Hive.

The B.LOVED Hive is a member community with a carefully curated program of helpful and inspiring advice, an industry blog, the opportunity to meet and network with other wedding pro’s at regular events, attend workshops and events and the most exciting thing of all…

The B.LOVED Hive is the first co-working space in London for the wedding industry!  

The Hive, based in South East London, will provide a place to work for the day, meet clients or host your own workshops, events and shoots! It’s aimed at all levels of business – whether you’re a start-up or have been around a few years and need help with the next step towards world domination, we’ve got your back.

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.
