love shoot: pretty on the pier {sarah & owen}

Hello gorgeous readers! I hope this drizzly weather hasn’t been dampening your spirits?  In any case, today I have just the cure!  No celebration of Britain would be complete without a trip to the seaside, so this morning we join Sarah and Owen on the Dorset coast for their peaceful and romantic engagement shoot.  Their photographer Dominique Bader, also happens to be one of my favourite British photographers, I love the clever way she uses natural light making her subjects softly glow, and her clean, understated style.

Sarah and Owen are such a relaxed in love couple, which combined with the soft palette of the seaside makes for such an easy, natural shoot.  I love their smiles, their gentle love and the way they clearly belong together.

The shoot began on the pretty timber pier at Swanage, with just a few fishermen for company, and a beautiful blue sky there is such peace in these images.

Moving on to the beach, grabbing an ice cream along the way, and the perfect opportunity to get their toes in the sand for a romantic stroll along the waves.

Don’t you just love the pretty golden light of the last few images of this shoot?  The gold and green heather backdrop makes for beautiful, dreamy images.

Sarah and Owen tied the knot a few weeks ago, and are off on a three week honeymoon travelling the world.  I can’t wait to see the wedding pictures of this gorgeous couple!  To see more of Dominique’s work head over to  Dominique is based in London, and shoots weddings throughout the UK, Ireland and overseas.


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.
