I am a through-and-through summer girl, I love nothing more than feeling the sun on my skin and a warm breeze ruffling my hair.   But every once in a while, winter captures my heart with a crisp sunny day and a generous dusting of snowfall.  It’s so romantic, wrapping up warm and trudging through the pure white countryside to find a cosy pub, sit fireside with your love sipping a rich red wine or a spiked hot chocolate.

I’m imagining one of those days as I pour through Shani & Chris’ beautiful snowy engagement shoot from Melissa Beattie.

Back in January I jumped in my car and set out for Cumbria, I was heading to the Lodore Falls Hotel for Chris and Shani’s pre wedding shoot. Lodore Falls is a gorgeous hotel tucked in to the hills that line the shore of the stunning Dewent Water in the UK’s Lake District National Park. With a location like this, I knew it was going to be a great shoot, I was excited about it. However, nothing had prepared me for the weather … snow, and lot’s of it! I totally missed the forecast. Half of me wanted to turn around and run a mile, the other half (the creative, not as sensible half) wanted to carry on … it will be amazing, totally worth getting stranded, go on. I am so thankful I went with my creative instinct, I hope you will agree that it was totally worth it and I didn’t get stuck either!


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.
