love shoot: bicycles & bridges {justin & stfenny}

Morning my loves!  There’s something so captivating about Amsterdam, it’s a young, vibrant and creative city with such history.  It’s the perfect combination for today’s young couple in love, who celebrated their engagement with a shoot among the bicycles and bridges of Amsterdam before their traditional Chinese wedding.  Justin and Stfenny are super cute, it’s not just their outfits that stand out in each shot but their shining love. Thanks to Australia-based Jonathan David Photography for the submission!

Here’s Justin with their story ~

I first met Sfenny a few years ago in a business meeting.  I remember her walking in and her exotic beauty making a lasting impression on me.  I was in a relationship at the time however, and so didn’t pursue anything. It wasn’t until one year after that first meeting that Sfenny’s name randomly appeared as a recommended friend on Facebook.  I was single by this point, so I crossed by fingers and decided to add her.  She accepted my friend request and after a week of chatting, I asked her out. Our first date went extremely well and both of us felt that elusive click!

 After spending more and more time together, I was left questioning, “Am I really ready for this?”.  I felt and knew deep down that our relationship had the potential to be serious.  I decided to live life with no regrets and went for it.  And I am so glad I did.  We will be celebrating our wedding in a traditional Chinese ceremony in August of 2013, and most of our efforts now have been put into researching ways we can incorporate our Chinese heritage into our 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.
