Whimsical Wonderland Weddings was founded by Louise Baltruschat 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.

Whimsical Wonderland Weddings has been on a journey, from a small blogger hosted blog with handmade header, to a wordpress hosted blog and re launch October 2010. With strong organic growth of Whimsical Wonderland Weddings, it was time to rebrand and reassess what it is and wanted to be, and with that Whimsical Wonderland Weddings re launched with the fresh brand face you see today, in January 2012.


Hi nice to meet you :) I am Louise Baltruschat, I am 27 years old and the full time writer behind Whimsical Wonderland Weddings. I live with my wonderful fiancé ‘G’ and my gorgeous boys; 5 year old ‘A’ and our new baby ‘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.
