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.

Hi, I would like to win tickets for the NEC Wedding show then I could justify a night away from the kids as I’d won them and then get to see all the amazing stalls at the show. We are getting married in our local church and hotel in Bury, Lancs on the 23rd Feb next year and I’m a turning into a diy bride and still in need of inspiration. I love b.loved as it has given me loads of ideas already but time is running out so help me please and let me win the tickets.

Hello there!

I would love to attend the National Wedding Show in London with my H2B as he is so, so loving planning our wedding and I know we would have such a fun day wandering around together and getting more ideas for our big day. We have just booked a July 2013 wedding; ceremony at Romsey Town Hall and then reception at a fantastic restored Victorian railway station in the Hampshire countryside! It is beautiful and just a bit bonkers! With the venue booked, we are now looking forward to working on the details to fit our Vintage British theme and with the new vintage area I know we will be totally inspired!

Thanks so much, fingers crossed!

Jenn, B2B
