Wrenbury Hall wedding photography

After second shooting for Michael at Capture my Big Day a few weeks before, I jumped at the chance to work with him again at Wrenbury Hall in Cheshire. I went to photograph the groom Liam and his groomsman getting ready, and it was a great morning. One of the big advantages of having two photographers at a wedding is that it allows each one to concentrate solely on either the bride or groom. I love photographing the boys, and this was one of the most chilled out mornings I’ve ever photographed. There were loads of great characters, and everyone … Read More

The Cragwood Hotel wedding photography

The Cragwood Hotel in the Lake District is a wonderful wedding venue to get married in.

Following the ceremony, we headed outside to do some photography by the lake. The weather was atrocious that day, but we were lucky and headed out during a break in the rain. … Read More

I was there to photograph the groom getting ready, then assist Matt throughout the rest of the day capturing natural unposed photographs.

Dorfold Hall Wedding photography

Last year, I got the opportunity to shadow and assist one of my favourite photographers, a Manchester-based wedding photographer called David Stubbs at a wedding venue in Cheshire called Dorfold Hall. His work is very much documentary in style, with very little interaction on the day, which is how I also love to photograph weddings. I have been a professional wedding photographer for a number of years now, but I always love the chance to work with other photographers whose work I admire. We are always learning, and I feel like I definitely picked up some great ideas from David … Read More

Rob and Stephanie are one of those great chilled out couples who really wanted to enjoy their day.

Clifton Arms Hotel Wedding Photography with Stephen and Michelle

I had been looking forward to photographing Stephen and Michelle’s wedding at the Clifton Arms Hotel ever since I met them at a wedding the previous year. I’m normally very looky with the weather, but on this day it ran out as Storm Callum hit us with 50mph winds and plenty of rain. I always tell couples that weather does not influence whether or not you have a great day. Yes, sunshine is lovely, but If you embrace the weather and roll with it, you will have a super day because as we know it is the people that really … Read More

Beech Hill Hotel Wedding Photography with Gary and Rachel

Gary and Rachel’s wedding was originally going to be photographed by my good friend Rob. Unfortunately, due to Ill health, I stepped in and what a great day it was. The venue was the Beech Hill Hotel on the banks of Lake Windermere, and although the weather was looking very ominous, on the day, the sun shone and everything was perfect.

Along with the bridesmaid’s children, the room was a busy hive of activity full of laughter and a few tears! I love the … Read More

Serena got ready with her friend, her sister, and her two daughters. The … Read More

Meols Hall wedding photography with Simon and Hannah

Meols Hall is one of my favourite wedding venues in Lancashire, and Simon and Hannah’s big day was definitely one of this year’s weddings which I was really looking forward to photographing. One of the reasons I enjoy working at Meols Hall is the wonderful outdoor spaces. The old cobbled courtyard is perfect for the drinks reception, and the beautiful old barn which oozes character is the perfect place for a modern wedding ceremony. When it comes to getting ready, everyone is different, and Hannah only wanted me at the house for the last forty-five minutes before she left. This … Read More

Eaves Hall wedding photography with Shouv and Kelly

I am always super happy to return to Eaves Hall near Clitheroe, especially when it is to photograph the wedding of a fantastic couple.

Holmes Mill Wedding Photography with Paul and Mia

Paul and Mia booked me to photograph their wedding at Holmes mill in Clitheroe, and it was a genuine pleasure.

Above everything, they wanted to enjoy their big day and have a set of photographs to remind them of all the fun and joy as they celebrated with family and friends which is music to my ears.

Sam and Kate attended a wedding I photographed a year or so ago and when they decided to get married shortly after that, they asked me to be their wedding photographer.
