love shoot: tulips in amsterdam {marina & denis}

Hello brides-to-be!  Are you enjoying our travel-themed week so far? Today I’m bringing you a gorgeous love shoot from the creative & cool city of Amsterdam! A place close to my heart, after living there for a number of years, and a story just perfect for our travels this week!

This super-cute couple actually newly-weds, on a tour of Europe after their intimate courthouse wedding in Moscow.  They celebrated with friends and family with a small reception dinner, how perfect and cute is that!  Whilst getting married in Moscow may sound utterly romantic, Marina and Denis explained that in reality you can’t do a photo session in the city without a billboard or advert in the background. Deciding that Moscow wasn’t romantic for them, Denis & Marina chose Amsterdam as a city where Denis had studied and that they both loved, bringing with them some typically Dutch props, like the amazing red tulips in some of the shots!

To top it all off, they chose one of my favourite photographers, Jennifer Hejna, to capture their newly-wed bliss. Her clean, contemporary style compliments the architecture and light of this quirky city beautifully!

Would you travel to find the perfect location to capture your love on film?  An international engagement shoot would be a great excuse to celebrate your love with a weekend away and some beautifully captured memories. What do you think of a newly-wed shoot?  I LOVE the idea of finding a local photographer on the first couple of days of your honeymoon to capture that in-love glow!


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.
