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.

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.
