Creative canapes

I love our fillet of beef skewers with a horseradish dip presented on lollipop sticks placed in milk bottle jars, accompanied by fresh blooms and a mist of nitrogen ice to create a wow factor for guests.

Simple starters

The perfect delicious starter has to be fillet steak, spring onion mash with caramelised shallots, served on a mini slate board.

Family-style dining

Serving main courses on our wooden boards creates a real talking point amongst guests. One of my favourites is rack of pork accompanied with creamy dauphinoise potatoes, honey roasted carrots, diced cabbage and deep fried sage topped off with a mini pouring jug of pork gravy.

DIY Desserts

Fresh berries, pearly white meringues, raspberry compote, vanilla cream and strawberry crisp are served in beautiful cut glass bowls, so guests can then have fun creating their own scrumptious dessert – bringing theatre and fun to the end of the meal

Patisserie Bars

A stylish alternative to sweetie tables, Patisseries Bars offer an elegant grown-up twist on this trend. Creating a focal point after the wedding breakfast has been served the bars can be styled in keeping with a couples theme. Glass fronted bars adorned with cut glass and mercury vases make the perfect addition to a chic contemporary celebration. Piled high with delicious treats such as triple chocolate mouse served in glass jars, macaroons, chocolate dipped strawberries on lollipops and flavoured marshmallow cones they are guaranteed to keep your guests full well into the evenings celebrations.

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.
