Louise Tugwell Photography

I had an lovely meeting today with Louise Tugwell of Louise Tugwell Photography.

She is based just down the road from me but this is the first time we've met (I must get out more) and I'm glad that we are finally in contact!

She is an amazing photographer who provides studio portraits and wedding photos but specialises in on location shoots.

Just look at the adorable photo on the front of her website, I love the chubby hands:

Louise's studio (at 26 The Circle, Harborne) has a lovely vibe and as you enter you just relax and you know that your pictures are going to be as amazing as the ones hanging on the walls.

We had a lovely cup of tea, I got to see her work with a client and I'm hoping to see a lot more of her in the future!

What happened to the Diving couple?

My clients have asked me to make their cake topper into a keepsake.  As a reminder here's the bride and groom topper the day before the wedding:

And this is how they look now:  
Poor things!  This was all a sharp eyed bridesmaid could salvage from the cake cutting.  The groom just has a stump for a left arm and one of the brides arms has disappeared altogether.  Their feet are missing, they have cake crumbs encrusted on their outfits and don't get me started on their mucky faces! 
Hopefully I'll be able to restore them to their former glory...

Lollipop cupcakes

These cupcakes were commissioned by my mother-in-law, Pam.  She was hosting a party and wanted each guest to have their own cupcake with their name on it (so no arguments perhaps?)
She left the colours and design to me, her only stipulation was they must be chocolate mud (well who can blame her?)

Diving Wedding Cake

Last week I made a wedding cake for a lovely couple who met whilst diving.  The cake was a three tier stacked together with separators which were to be covered with fresh flowers.  We transported the individual tiers and stacked them together at the venue (Wroxall Abbey - nice!), I got my camera out to take my usual 1000 photographs and discovered I'd left the memory card at home..... to say I was frustrated by this is an understatement!

I did take a few snaps at home before we left...this is the underwater camera:

Here are the bride and groom with their diving gear on:

I did manage to take a couple of shots with my phone but it's not the same is it?....

I'm hoping some kind person will send me some photos of the completed cake!
