love shoot #11: love on the docks {andre & ulrike}

Wedding season is almost upon us, and that means lots of lovely couples and photographers out and about in our parks and cities doing pre-wedding shoots!  I love that couple shoots are becoming more and more popular in the UK, and I love recieving submissions from photographers of them!

Today’s shoot was submitted by the lovely Sona of Lila’s Photography, I love the fact that the location is a bit out of the ordinary!

Sona explained a little bit about this shoot

I knew that Andre and Ulrike might just be up for something different.  So I suggested the Docks in Cork. And they loved the idea! And I love them for loving it:)  The Docks were pretty industrial, dirty and OMG sooo smelly, but also so so so cool and awesome:) We also went to the old railway track afterwards, to get few more natural and soft looking photos.

Andre & Ulrike are both from Germany, and met about 8 years ago when invited to the same Sushi party.  André left a good first impression by stepping into a bowl of soy sauce when he was  introduced to Ulrike!  Although they met again a in the following weeks, it was a whole 5 months later before they actually became a couple.  André proposed in a local bar in Chennai, during a trip they took through India in 2009.


They will tie the knot next month in an intimate ceremony, wishing you both the best of luck with your big day!


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.
