Wedding photography London & beyond – a preview of recent weddings and bridal shoots around UK

It is time to wrap up a fantastic 2015 today. And I thought I should wrap up this year, with a proper preview of a few things that I’ve been up to this autumn. It has been a busy few months… with as vivid and interesting work as a super pretty, elegant 1920’s wedding (think Gatsby!) at the Landsdowne Club in Mayfair, cozy countryside weddings around Surrey and Kent… featuring high tea reception and a purple wedding dress… the winning wedding for the “UK wedding of the year competition” held by the National magazine Wedding (an atmospheric woodland wonderland wedding in Buckinghamshire!), then off to shoot for the big yearly autumn bridal fashion show at Manchester Events City (- And in between, I’ve been over in Sweden to set up my second office and Swedish web site, and up above London on top of rooftops and cherry pickers, to shoot a London in expansion for my architecture clients. On a personal level, I’ve also been training and studying for my yoga instruction certificate, which I will acquire in Goa next month (!)

I know, I have fallen off the blogosphere radar a bit this autumn. When I blog a wedding, I want to set aside a full 2 days for it to make a thought through post, and to select the best shots of about a thousand – I want to really tell the story of the day the best I can… and I just haven’t had the time this autumn  😉

But today on this last day of 2015, I am making up for it, with a blog post containing a preview from a few of the different things that I’ve been up to these last few months. (Accompanied by som lovely commentary from my clients.) I’m lucky to have had such wonderful clients this year, thank you to you all. And thank you yet again to my lovely assistant Michelle for your hard work this year, you’ve been awesome as always!

See you all in 2016, for some reason, it feels like it’s gonna be a really good year in the world!   xoxoxo Louise

I have a gorgeously atmospheric, rustic style, countryside wedding in store for the blog today – A summer solstice (!) wedding from the beautiful landscapes of Norfolk, featuring the church of Sculthorpe and a hog roast reception at Piggyback Barns. Oh am I pleased to finally blog the wedding of these gorgeous two! Hang on a minute, you might say, a Summer Solstice wedding in May…? It’s last year’s Summer Solstice I might add 😉 . It has recently been featured by the online wedding Magazine Zank You Weddings and I didn’t want to spoil the fun before it had been published. So here it is, just in time for the summer to come back around again!

It felt a bit extra special being a Swede, to get to photograph a Solstice wedding here in the UK. As it happens in Sweden, summer Solstice is the second biggest celebration of the year, after Christmas that is. So how to better enjoy this day, then to go on a road trip with my lovely assistant Michelle to capture a beautiful wedding in the countryside…!

Bec and Rob invited to a super cozy reception in a converted barn, with lots of homely touches. All the tables are named after favorite race horses! This brought a lot of smiles around the room, since both the families are very in to horse racing… Louise Bjorling wedding photography Louise Bjorling wedding photography modern-wedding-photographer-london modern-wedding-photographer-london wedding-photography-Louise-Bjorling-rustic-countryside wedding-photography-Louise-Bjorling-rustic-countryside wedding-photography-Louise-Bjorling-rustic-countryside wedding-photography-Louise-Bjorling-rustic-countryside wedding-mingle-photography-london wedding-mingle-photography-london wedding-mingle-photography-london london-storytelling-wedding-photographer-2 Louise Bjorling wedding photography london-wedding-mingle-photography story-telling-wedding-photography-london Louise Bjorling wedding photography Louise Bjorling wedding photography Louise Bjorling wedding photography Louise Bjorling wedding photography Louise Bjorling wedding photography story-telling-wedding-photography-london Louise Bjorling wedding photography editorial-wedding-photographer-london Louise Bjorling wedding photography Louise Bjorling wedding photography Louise Bjorling wedding photography Louise Bjorling wedding photography Louise Bjorling wedding photography storytelling-wedding-photographer-london Louise Bjorling wedding photography Louise Bjorling wedding photography modern-wedding-portraits-london wedding-photography-Louise-Bjorling-rustic-countryside wedding-photography-Louise-Bjorling-rustic-countryside wedding-photography-Louise-Bjorling-rustic-countryside wedding-photography-Louise-Bjorling-rustic-countryside wedding-photographer-piggy-back-barns Louise Bjorling wedding photography Louise Bjorling wedding photography storytelling-wedding-photographer-london-2 Louise Bjorling wedding photography Louise Bjorling wedding photography wedding-photography-Louise-Bjorling-rustic-countryside wedding-photography-Louise-Bjorling-rustic-countryside wedding-photography-Louise-Bjorling-rustic-countryside  wedding-photography-Louise-Bjorling-rustic-countryside

It was a bit of a nice surprise to be contacted by an Honduras wedding Magazine (!) wishing to publish one of our bridal shoots.

Definitely a special feeling to have been found by an editor all the way across the pond… or it might even be a few ponds actually 😉 .

We reckon that Bodas Magazine in Honduras did a really excellent feature of our 1950s shoot – a shoot originally shot for Your London Wedding Magazine, this bridal inspiration shoot features 1950s style and vintage, playing with colourful pastel / techni colour and carrying influences from the era of Marilyn Monroe. Artist Amelia Barnes (founder of “Miss Vintage wedding Affair”) was behind the creative ideas for the shoot, which was realised with a whole team of London wedding professionals, against the quirky backdrops of Battersea Arts Centre in London.

Thank you to editor Tania at Bodas Magazine – the feature looks great!


Our model Megan McConnell is also an incredibly talented singer – and had us all freezing still when she started rocking it on the uculele 😉 professional-bridal-photographer-london wedding-photographer-london-2 vintage-wedding-photographer-london bridal-vintage-magazine-shoot-london
