Luisa & Matt

St Joan of Arc Catholic Church & Busbridge Lakes, Godalming


When Luisa & Matt booked me to photograph their wedding, I was so excited, the reception venue sounded amazing and they were such a lovely couple.

We first got together to take their engagement photos at Virginia Water, the waterfall there is amazing (frustratingly now, they have put barriers around, so not so good for photos!).

When the big day came, I had Maria 2nd shooting with me, despite Luisa & Matt, and lots of their family and friends spending the night before all together, and staying in the same hotel, it was much better having Maria concentrate on the Groom & Groom’s men, and I could focus on the bridal party. Matt, his boys and the rest of the non bridal party got an old red bus to the church, it was a great start to the fun and celebrations. Luisa was driven to church by her father in an old, open top MG. The service in the Church was beautiful, you could really feel the love. Matt & Luisa looked so happy and relaxed. Once the service had finished, we took some bridal party photos in the grounds, after the throwing of the confetti. Matt and Luisa then travelled to the Church in the MG, roof open for the world to meet the new couple. When we arrived at Busbridge Lakes it looked amazing, completed perfectly by the glorious sunny day they were blessed with. A saxophonist played to the guests as they enjoyed their reception drinks. Photos within the grounds were amazing as there are so many photo opportunities Busbridge, but I made sure I didn’t steal Luisa and Matt away from their guests for too long!! The Wedding breakfast was served in the marquee with speeches intercepting each course. After the meal, the evening guests began to arrive and the amazing band played to a very jolly and energetic audience.

The whole day was a blast and everyone enjoyed themselves, everything was perfect and the bride and groom looked amazing and well and truly in love!

Loren was simply sensational. Not only in terms of the superior photography skill level she has, but also as a person.

From the first moment when we decided on stone photos to capture our memories for our special day, she has made us feel so assured in everything being under control.

The pre shoots to the actual wedding day itself, she was really crucial to the whole thing. When we received our pictures, our jaws dropped and were amazed at the beautiful quality that she captured. 

We wanted a photographer who not only captures the love between the bride and groom, but also captures the love within in the room. She does this in spades.

Thank you again and we truly feel we gained a friend though this journey with us.
