Video interview with UK wedding of the year photographer for the Wedding WOTY … hm that’s me 😉


Does anyone else find it a bit scary to see yourself on camera? Well I do… 🙂

But it was so amazing to be selected by the magazine Wedding to be their UK wedding of the year photographer, so of course I just have to upload this interview, made in association with the competition.

I had the absolute crazy amazing privilege of being selected by the magazine, to shoot lovely Nuala and Adrian’s “Woodland wonderland” themed wedding as they won UK wedding of the year for 2015. (Yes no joke) Our “pre-wedding meet up” fell on a day when I was absolutely distraught – having had all my photography equipment just stolen the day before during a burglary, then driven for several hours to get to the beautiful Notley Abbey Venue on almost no sleep at all… But as I arrived I was greeted by the super happy couple who had just won a whopping £25’000 to spend on their wedding day, and lots of creative and talented suppliers that where to be involved for their wedding. Suddenly all my worries where just as blown away. (And not to worry about the equipment, it turned out that my insurance company would be very fair indeed, and I now have new and even better equipment 🙂 )

What I didn’t know however, was that I was about to be interviewed on the spot… so I had to muster quite a bit of concentration in my sleepless head… and here is the result of that interview (!)
(Just click on the picture to see the whole interview – I will start talking around 4:50 minutes)

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

Wedding of the year photography for the magazine Wedding

The magazine Wedding selected lovely Nuala and Adrian to win the big yearly WOTY 2015 competition… and then… the magazine selected me to shoot their big day. (Yes, I’m not joking – a day of surprise when that email landed in my inbox)

On a beautiful sunny Autumn day, I woke up in an amazing mood, ready to head back to Notley Abbey in Buckinghamshire to capture the day of these awesome two! It was so nice to be part of the day for two people who had been awarded with 25K towards their wedding(!) Yes, that’s what they won in the big Wedding of the year competition, held by Wedding. I love it when I get to see good things come to good people!

And today I have the pleasure of sharing a link to the online feature of their day, on the magazine Wedding’s web site. Of course, a full blog chapter coming soon here to the blog. Scroll down to the link to see their feature, and to read the interview with Nuala – which really made me smile 🙂

You can’t say “congratulations” too many times… so congratulations again, to Nuala & Adrian!
