Good morning readers!  This morning we’re venturing off to Portugal with the wonderful Lounge Fotografia for Marina & Carlos’ pretty engagement shoot.  This gorgeous couple {seriously, aren’t they just gorgeous?!} picked a pretty woodland location for a romantic stroll and picnic filled with personal trinkets and favourite things.  Marina wore a beautiful floral crown in some of the shots, paired with a floaty white dress – the perfect look for a sweet summer’s day shoot.  I also adore the props. My favourite? The ‘para sempre’ sign, which means forever….

Here’s there story so far ~

We met in a bar and were introduced by a mutual friend.  For the next two years we saw each other regularly, but watched shyly from a distance not talking to each other.  Finally, Carlos decided to take a leap and ask me out on a date.  That was 9 wonderful years ago!

After 8 years of dating, we decided to take on a common project, a house.  It was then Carlos proposed, on a beautiful sunny day. It was perfect.

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.
