I’m writing this while sat on the balcony of our rented apartment in Dubai, overlooking the marina where the rich & famous moor their yachts and party until late.  It reminds me just how much I love travelling, and even though there’s  already 100’s of places on my bucket list there I’m still finding new ones to discover every day.  It’s one of the reasons our travel posts on BLOVED Lifestyle are so important, providing a little escapism and inspiration in the middle of your week.

Today we’re heading to the pretty island of Sardinia with photographer Claire Graham for a dose of citrus and sunshine, sea and sand and the lovelies luxury holiday villla you ever did see.

DESTINATION: Sardinia, Italy


I stayed in Porto Columbu-Perd’e Sali on the southern tip of the island. It’s peaceful, tranquil, and is still warm in October.


I went out of season so most things were closed. However, I found Sardinia to be a country that offers tourist a place to go to just relaxed and unwind. There are the most beautiful coastal trails and mountains to climb, which offer breath-taking sights.  I’d love to go back and shoot a wedding there too!


A camera and a good book!


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.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
