Whimsical Wonderland Weddings was founded by Louise Baltruschat Hollis in April 2010, whilst planning her own wedding day. From personal musings and a place bookmark her wedding finds, it grew into a resource followed by couples. When devastatingly Lou and her fiancé decided to cancel their wedding 6 weeks before hand (due to health problems), she could not bear to say goodbye to Whimsical Wonderland Weddings and the community she had established. So she continued in her quest to assist and inspire other couples and to promote the amazing UK wedding industry.

About Me


Hi nice to meet you :) I am Louise Baltruschat Hollis, I am 29 years old and the full time writer behind Whimsical Wonderland Weddings. I live with my wonderful husband ‘G’ and my gorgeous boys; 6 year old ‘A’ and our 1 year old ‘W’, in a little village in Bedfordshire, England.

I am a little bit eccentric, pretty much eclectic and a lot indecisive. Along with featuring a ton of real weddings, I like to feature my personal ramblings, photography, thoughts and inspirations. I love a bit of everything, which reflects in both the style and content of Whimsical Wonderland Weddings.

Hi, nice to meet you! I’m Anna, 28 years old and currently an Executive Assistant living in London. Originally from Bedfordshire, I moved down to London three years ago with my now husband, Sam.

Outside of my full time job I am super organised but creative. I love cooking, baking, all things arty, and although very much a beginner, sewing.

After spending two years planning, pinning and DIYing my own wedding with Sam, I felt a little lost once it was all over. Joining WWW means that I can enjoy it all over again and escape from the corporate world of my day job to inject some colour and creativity in to my life! I’m very much looking forward to working with Lou and being part of this lovely blog that helped me plan my own big day.
