On March 17th 2011 I hit publish on the very first blog post here on B.LOVED. Back then I was a newly-wed with a whole load of passion for bringing fresh, contemporary ideas and inspiration from around the world to style-conscious couples here in the UK.
Fast forward almost 10 years (or 2,731 posts) and things have changed hugely! The wedding industry has evolved and B.LOVED has grown into one of the top UK wedding blogs, reaching thousands of readers every month. We have partnered with some of the industry’s most well-loved brands, featured the work of some of the most inspiring suppliers from all over the world, and shared hundreds of your beautiful weddings.
We have been named one of the Top 100 Wedding Blogs in the world every year since we launched, won awards, joined a collective of the world’s most loved blogs at Aisle Society, and have grown our social following to over 2 million views per month. I am so, so proud of what we have achieved!
But my life has changed a lot too, as a multiple business owner coaching & mentoring creative business owners, producing and creating shoots for wedding & lifestyle brands and being a bonus-mum of two, my time, energy and passion has been pulled in many directions.
So, after much thought, consideration and searching for the perfect team, I’m absolutely thrilled to let you know that I’m handing over the (keyboard) keys here at B.LOVED to a new owner with fresh energy, enthusiasm, and pretty big ideas for the future! From our very first conversation I knew they’d be the perfect fit to continue and grow the brand I’ve created into something fresh, aspirational and new – exactly what my vision for the blog has always been.
I’m pretty excited about what they have planned, and I can’t wait for you to meet them!
MEET THE NEW TEAM
Hello from Jack and Adrian, the new team behind B.LOVED! We are lifelong friends and long-time players in the events, fashion and branding space with Adrian as the founder of Pomerium – a luxury goods, hospitality and events company.
We have a diverse team of bridal, fashion and events experts in London, Singapore and Australia and we look forward to building upon Louise’s amazing work with B.LOVED. We intend to develop a wider, more diverse audience while staying true to her original vision: helping to celebrate and promote beautiful weddings while featuring the professionals who bring it all together.
We plan to inject new energy to the site to give you an updated editorial approach and even more wedding inspiration from around the world. Always luxe, ever lovely: your B.LOVED.
A FINAL FAREWELL
