My style is Quirky, whimsical, timeless, vintage, I suppose I’d have to say eclectic as that covers all bases!

I’m inspired by  Vintage posters, tins and packaging, sign writing, … Folk art has been a big inspiration for my illustration work. I’m also inspired by our hometown of Shrewsbury and beautiful countryside.

My favourite piece from the new collection is Our ‘Sumer Garden’ range. It has a really fun folky feel to it, but the layout allows for traditional wording.

Trends I love right now Bride and groom branding. The use of a logo and type set throughout all wedding stationery that can then be continued in personal stationery post wedding.  I also love wedding cocktails, it’s a fun way to inject bright colours and they don’t have to be alcoholic, so kids can enjoy them too!


Designers I admire There are so many, Jessica Hische, Rob Ryan, Mary Kate McDevitt. I’m a big fan of UK printmakers Bold and Noble, our office is full of their prints.

I love my job because Since becoming a mum, being my own boss has aloud me to be flexible with my working hours. This does mean that I’m usually up until two or three in the morning doing my clients design proofs, but I get time in the day to play with the little one.


Weddings make me  stressed! My husband and I were a little laid back with our wedding plans and to be honest it showed! The couples we work with tend to approach their wedding day with military style planning but the results are totally worth it!


My advice for couples planning their wedding is  If you want guests to mail back their RSVP cards, include stamped (and addressed) envelopes or stamped RSVP postcards. That way guests don’t have to pay for the postage and it makes things a little easier for them. We recently did a survey amongst our customers and found 75% of guests returned their RSVP by the RSVP due date. Another option is to include an RSVP email address or a mobile number for calls and text messages.


The new collection features designs to suit every style – from the botanical-inspired Bumble to the vintage elegance of Peaches, the graphic London skyline of Capital and the quirky vintage motifs of Ephemera. Which one’s your favourite?

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.
