love shoot: between the sheets {kirsten & luke}

Hello readers! Did you all enjoy the long weekend? I’ve been busy watching your responses to the b.loved Reader Survey, and am loving hearing what you have to say! If you haven’t completed it yet (it takes 5 minutes, seriously!) click here to start, and you could be in with the chance of winning the fabulous Handmade Weddings book (which is patiently waiting in my office for the winner to be announced!).

I’m so excited to share today’s shoot by the fabulous South African photographer Jacki Bruniquel.  She is not afraid to push boundaries, and paired with her artist style creates awesome shoots that capture the very essence of her subjects.  A couple of weeks ago I shared this gorgeous, feminine boudoir shoot by Cat Hepple, and today we go a little further in exploring this ‘boudoir’ style of shoot with a ‘between the sheets’ couple shoot.  Jacki’s creative documentary style captures the intimate, sexy, romantic and fun personalities of Kirsten & Luke, they quite obviously adore one another.  There is a quiet energy and love between these two that is reflected in these images, no need for fancy props, just two people in love.

The second part of the shoot on a deserted nearby beach captures the same intimacy, love and sense of fun!

Kirsten & Luke get married this month, after their spectacular engagement shoot I can’t wait to see their wedding!

If you love Jacki’s images as much as I do, make sure you head on over to her blog to see all her latest shoots and weddings.  Jacki is based in Durban, South Africa, she shoots weddings all over South Africa and internationally.


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.
