Hamish Shephard – MPA Awards Online Judge


Bridebook was founded by Hamish Shephard in 2015. When Hamish left a career in banking, he had no idea he was setting himself up to revolutionise wedding planning. His experience in the wedding industry began when he transformed his grandmother’s old home into one of the UK’s leading wedding venues.

During this process, he quickly discovered that most couples spent the majority of their engagement feeling overwhelmed and confused by the whole wedding planning process. Hamish soon became enamoured by the mission to make wedding planning as enjoyable and fun as the wedding day itself. Thus began a journey of inspiration, discovery and creativity… with Bridebook as the culmination of it all!

Bridebook is now the free wedding planning app and website used by over 40,000 couples across the UK. Couples use Bridebook to book their photographers and fellow suppliers and plan their perfect weddings without any of the stress. Bridebook Business supports this by offering a free listing service for venues and suppliers across the country. Our goal is to connect couples with their wedding dream team and to help wedding venues and suppliers across the country grow and marketing their business.

“We, the Bridebook Team and I, are proud to be sponsoring and supporting the MPA Awards and professional wedding photographers across the country. Both The MPA and Bridebook.co.uk love celebrating the successes of photographic talent within the industry and pride ourselves in promoting and caring for the wedding professionals within our communities. To all the photographers involved, good luck and congratulations on another fantastic year of creativity and photographic brilliance!
