WEDDINGS

introducing… the b.team! {part one}

Six months ago I had an idea, one of those lightbulb moments where suddenly everything makes sense.  I wanted to build a bigger and better b.loved, I wanted to share some of the amazingly talented people I meet in this industry every single day, and I wanted to give you more reasons to visit these pages with inspiration, ideas and advice from a more varied viewpoint.  So I got in touch with some of the people I most respect, people that not only are colleagues in the wedding industry, but friends.  The ones I would trust the most important day of your lives with.  I asked them if they would like to get involved, to share their knowledge, advice and passion for weddings on a regular basis.  And they all said yes!

So the b.team was born! The b.team is a very talented group of specially selected wedding industry professionals bringing the best inspiration, ideas and advice to help you create your own stylish & unique day.  They share the b.loved dreams and aspirations, are passionate about pretty, contemporary weddings, and each bring their own unique wedding experiences and style to b.loved.  This team of lovely ladies (and one lovely gent!) are always on hand to share their professional advice and creative ideas, and to support you in planning your wedding, think of them as your second bridal party!

Each member of the b.team has the b.loved stamp of approval, I have personally worked with each one of them and they come top of my list for recommendations!  Representing every aspect of weddings, from flowers and stationery to fashion and photography, they team is made up of some of the most stylish, creative and forward thinking professionals in the industry.

Each b.team member guest posts for b.loved on a monthly basis, covering everything from beauty and fashion trends, floral and styling inspiration, planning and etiquette advice to photography tips.  We’ll also be collaborating on editorial shoots and trend pieces, ensuring you are always up to date with the freshest ideas and inspiration in the wedding world!

Of course I couldn’t introduce them without creating something special! So a few weeks ago on a drizzly Autumn morning I gathered the team at Nonsuch Mansion in Surrey for a b.team shoot, where they not only got to show off their professional talents, but also to get pampered and glamorised to become our models for the day! I’ll be sharing the shoot in all it’s glory this afternoon.

Next week I’ll be handing the blog over to the b.team to introduce themselves, and for their very first official posts, but this morning, let’s meet the beautiful b.team!

Make-up artist Ana Ospina joins the b.team as our resident expert on bridal beauty!  Specialising in airbrush make-up application, she was responsible for beautifying the team and making us all feel amazing and confident with beautiful skin and amazing lashes!   You’ll meet Ana on Tuesday afternoon when she’ll be talking about creating your perfect bridal make-up look.

Anneli Marinovich is the b.team‘s official photographer and photography expert!  I’ve worked with Anneli from the beginning of b.loved, and she was behind the lens at the b.team shoot, capturing all the pretty details and the even prettier b.team.  Meet Anneli on Tuesday morning, as she explains how important it is to fall in love…with your wedding photographer!

Liz Inigo Jones joins us from Blue Sky Flowers, and brings over a decade of floral talent to the team, including all the prettiness in the b.team shoot!

Yes, I’m part of the b.team too! I’ll be sharing even more styling advice and wedding design inspiration, working to bring you even more original and new content and styled shoots.

India and Sinclair are the two super stylish and gorgeous ladies behind Maids to Measure.  They turned up to the b.team shoot with a rail full of pretty dresses for us to raid, and will be sharing their bridal fashion tips and bridesmaids advice with you!

Emily from Tempting Cake joins the b.team to tempt us with her beautiful wedding cakes and tempting treats!  Emily made an oh-so-pretty cake for the b.team shoot, complete with butter icing dahlia and delicious strawberry filling, and all the pretty pastel treats that accompany it!  On Monday afternoon you’ll meet Emily and discover her passion for baking as she inspires some autumn wedding desert ideas.

Lucy Uren, founder of stylish online homewares boutique Rowen & Wren, joins us to share interior inspirations and lifestyle trends that take you from your wedding day and into married life. She joins us on Monday to inspire you with an Autumn Feast!

Catharine and James, from Itty Bitty & Bijou are the creative talent behind our very popular free stationery printables.  Sadly they couldn’t join us on the day of the shoot, but sent along some beautifully designed b.team stationery and graphics (and some very yummy treats to keep us all going!).  They’re back on Thursday afternoon with their latest post for b.loved, and some wedding menu inspiration.

Are you excited about the b.team?! I hope you’ll give them a big b.loved welcome, and stop by to say hi every now and then!

You can find out more about each member on their b.team bio page.  And whatever you’re browsing on b.loved, you can always find the b.team in the sidebar :)

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.
