Excitedly awaiting the arrival of her first born, this pretty maternity shoot by Taylor Barnes Photography at mum-to-be Jessie’s super stylish Cheltenham home perfectly captures her loving and calm style.  Jessie is a wedding planner and incredible stylist, and you can tell by her outfit choices every aspect of her beautiful bump shoot was perfectly considered – from the pretty pink pleated skirt to the use of the bohemian lace headpiece she wore on her wedding day.  Such a lovely touch.

Jessie’s story –

I was tempted and eventually persuaded by Ashlee to record this special time in my life, a time when my body was going through a huge change – physically and emotionally. I am so glad I did it, as a reminder of those blissful days before baby arrived, things are a little more messy and we get less sleep these days. I wouldn’t change it for the world, there is also so much more joy. ​

Whether you like it or not, motherhood rather defines you. Whether you stay at home, work from home or work in an office – your entire life now revolves around this little person who is so completely dependent on you. It changes your core values for the better. It makes you feel so much more love, not just for your children but the person who helped bring them into the world with you and all those around them. I have never felt so connected to other women, and the women in my family who have brought us all up through the generations. It’s like suddenly you understand the meaning of life. I know not all mothers feel that way, and not all women want children, however for me it is a huge part of who I am now and forever more.



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.
