Back to this morning, and today’s gorgeous love shoot is brought to us by Durban-based fine art wedding photographer Jacki Bruniquel.  Claire & Dale’s shoot is full of love and warmth, classic elegance and style, I love the forties style of Claire’s dress and soft curls.  These two love-birds are date night regulars, and love nothing more than heading to their local cinema to catch the latest movies.  If my local cinema looked like this, I think I’d go more often too!  In classic movie-star style Claire & Dale completely rocked this shoot!

Claire & Dale are married this summer at the beautiful Oyster Box Hotel on the Durban coast.  I’m sure their day will be as stylish and romantic as they are!

To find out more about Jacki Bruniquel, visit, where you will find all her latest work.  Jacki is based in Durban, South Africa but is willing to travel internationally to capture your beautiful wedding 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.
