Since founding B.LOVED in 2011, I’ve learned that running your own business is full of highs and lows, achievements and struggles.  Working from home and often late into the night, trying to finding that work, life and financial balance, there’s no question that while immensely satisfying, running your own business can be frustrating and lonely.

I’ve been fortunate to have built an awesome network of talented and creative individuals over the years, who have celebrated my successes and  been there through the tough times too. But I’ve often wished there had been an event where I could find the information and support I needed to grow.

So I decided to do something about it, and I’m delighted to announce our inaugural HiveLive event, new at the B.LOVED Hive for 2017.

Hosted at our beautiful new studio in Bermondsey on Friday 28th and Saturday 29th April 2017, this wedding industry conference will equip you with the knowledge, skills and confidence you need to achieve your business goals in 2017 and beyond.



I’m so excited to welcome some of the industry’s leading experts covering the topics so many wedding pros struggle with, from finding the right clients on social media, to the secrets of time management – and everything in between!
