sunset maternity shoot in south africa with navy dress and gold details


We’re pretty big fans of the golden hour, that hour in the early evening when gorgeous golden light flatters the skin and makes everything just look so damn pretty!  So when Roxanne & Ferid’s sunset maternity shoot from South African photographer Matthew Carr landed in our submissions pile we had a total swoon moment!

What does being a mother mean to you?  WOW!…..where do I start. It’s a miracle being pregnant and having a healthy baby for starters.  Meeting and holding Bella after realising how amazing this incredible journey was so far of growing a small human being inside you for 9 months. Eating and drinking what you did…and all the details of this small little bundle of joy. I am a real girly girl, and couldn’t wait to play dress up with her in the cutest outfits. And having an extension of us, but with her own personality and looks. Such an amazing feeling and privilege to be parents of this beautiful gift, that God chose us to raise Isabella…I still can’t get over how lucky we are.



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.


Tuesday afternoon’s are one of my favourites, as more often than not we get to share
