Beeston Manor Wedding Photography with Rob and Stephanie

Rob and Stephanie are one of those great chilled out couples who really wanted to enjoy their day. From the very first time we got chatting about their wedding at Beeston Manor, I knew it was going to be the kind of day which I just love to photograph. I have photographed many weddings at Beeston Manor over the past few years. Last year it won the North-West venue of the year, and I can see why with the stunning surroundings and the great customer service you get at this very friendly family run business. I started out at Stephanie’s … Read More

Matt and Helen’s wedding at Sandhole Oak Barn in Cheshire was a great day from beginning to end. I was recommended to the couple by my friend Dave who’s wife is the groom’s sister.

I was lucky enough to be asked to photograph David and Terri’s beautiful wedding at Ferraris Country House Hotel. The sun shone all day and we were treated to blue skies on a wonderful British summers 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. Whenever couples get married who have children, they are obviously an important part of the day. 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

Last Drop Village Hotel Wedding Photography with Dave and Serena

Dave and Serena’s wedding at the Last Drop Village Hotel in Bolton, Lancashire was forecast to be a very wet day. Fortunately for everyone, the sun came out to play, and the whole day was a great success. When I first walked through the doors of the Last Drop village hotel, I was confronted with a smashed cake! Unfortunately, accidents like this do happen every now and again, but luckily the cake decorator did a great job and managed to sort it all out by the afternoon! 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.

The stunning Meols Hall near Southport has to be one of the best venues to tie the knot in the whole of the North West. The old brickwork of the ancient hall makes a great backdrop for wedding photography. James and Laura’s big day was one of those occasions filled with all the best emotions. Love, joy, and laughter were always present as this wonderful couple celebrated their love for each other with their friends and family.

Phil and Anna booked me to photograph their wedding at Bashall Barn having been recommended by friends. I first worked at this stunning venue about three years ago when it was just beginning to host weddings.

The all-new balcony/ceremony location is probably the best I have photographed, and it is surely now one of the best wedding venues in the area. Set in the wonderful countryside around Clitheroe, this working farm has bucket loads of rural charm and … Read More

Gibbon Bridge Wedding Photography with David and Tara

Gibbon Bridge is one of the best settings in Lancashire for wedding photography, so as soon as David and Tara asked me to shoot their big day, I was really looking forward to it. In the North West of England, we get used to checking the weather, but it was not necessary for this wedding. The sky was blue and the sun shone all day, creating the perfect conditions for the couple and their guests to relax and enjoy the celebrations. The outdoor space at the Gibbon Bridge Hotel is beautiful, and as David and Tara said their vows with … Read More
