INTRODUCING MY B.LOVED!

You know that feeling when you’ve found the perfect piece of inspiration, but lost the link or pin back to it? Yeh. It sucks, and without hours and hours of searching inevitably that post ends up in a world-wide-web black hole never to be seen again.  So we thought it would be pretty cool to save you all that hassle, and make it super simple for you to save your favourite posts ready to refer back to whenever you’re ready…

Launching today, My B.LOVED is an exclusive function allowing you to save your favourite posts to your own online scrapbook. It couldn’t be easier to sign up – simply click the ‘Join My B.LOVED‘ button in the top right hand corner of this page, and you will automatically be connected via Facebook (don’t worry, we won’t post anything to your Facebook account).

You can save posts whenever you see the My B.LOVED symbol:

Louise

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.
