Happy Easter!  A little news and an awesome competition for you gorgeous almost-married’s this Easter Monday! I am delighted to announce that b.loved sponsor Jacques Lloyd of Real Simple Photography is relocating from Cape Town to the sunny shores of the UK (ha!) this summer, and to celebrate they are giving away a fabulous engagement shoot to one lucky b.loved couple!

Jacques’ work is a regular feature on b.loved with some beautiful Cape weddings gracing our pages, so I’m thrilled to see him bring his photography talent to the UK for you to experience!  Jacques photography style is contemporary and natural, making the most of natural light and colours (check out some of his stunning sunset portraits!!).

An engagement shoot is the perfect way to celebrate your commitment, get some gorgeous relaxed photo’s of you in love, and perhaps even be used in your wedding stationery and décor. It’s also a great opportunity for the camera shy to get used to having your picture taken, so you are more relaxed and natural on the big day itself!  Jacques has picked the quintessentially English city of Winchester for the shoot, with it’s pretty streets and cute cafés, river walks and Cathedral backdrop it’s the perfect location for some cosy couple portraits!

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.
