We adore parents-to-be Regardt & Mariska’s beautiful blue maternity shoot in honour of baby Sion, who arrived just a few weeks later.  We love that they chose to do their shoot among the golden fields on their own farm at home in South Africa where their baby boy will grow up, and we adore the soft light and golden glow captured so beautifully by Charl van de Merwe.  Proof that sometimes all you need are some pretty light and colours to make beautiful things happen.

After seeing Charl van der Merwe Photography’s work, and absolutely adoring it, we decided we needed to do a shoot with him before our baby boy Sion was born.  We knew we were expecting a boy, so wore a soft pastel blue which looked beautiful in the natural setting of our farm, and home, near Polokwane in South Africa.

I am so excited to be a mother; to be able to give Sion the absolute best I can and to see him grow and develop into the person he is going to be. To cultivate joy and make him feel he can be just who he wants to be.


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.
