Good morning readers!  This morning we’re venturing off to Portugal with the wonderful Lounge Fotografia for Marina & Carlos’ pretty engagement shoot.  This gorgeous couple {seriously, aren’t they just gorgeous?!} picked a pretty woodland location for a romantic stroll and picnic filled with personal trinkets and favourite things.  Marina wore a beautiful floral crown in some of the shots, paired with a floaty white dress – the perfect look for a sweet summer’s day shoot.  I also adore the props.

We met in a bar and were introduced by a mutual friend.  For the next two years we saw each other regularly, but watched shyly from a distance not talking to each other.  Finally, Carlos decided to take a leap and ask me out on a date.  That was 9 wonderful years ago!

After 8 years of dating, we decided to take on a common project, a house.  It was then Carlos proposed, on a beautiful sunny day. It was perfect.

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.
