Mesnes Park Wedding – Angela & Paul

Last weekend I got to meet up with Angela and Paul for their wedding at the lodge in Mesnes Park, Wigan. It was a scorcher of a day and the park was looking at its best when I met up with Paul and the boys for some pre-wedding pics. Angela and her brides maids arrived…

Lancashire Manor Wedding – Nik & Rick

I had the pleasure of shooting Nichola & Rick’s wedding at Lancashire Manor Hotel near Skelmersdale on the day that storm Brian hit the UK. We had planned all sorts of photos of the bride and groom but the day was a complete wash out for outdoor photos so we had to make the most…

Combermere Abbey Wedding – Kelsie & Chris

It was the hottest and sunniest day in August, which is unusual here in the UK for a bank holiday, but Kelsie & Chris picked a scorcher of a day to tie the knot at the gorgeous Combermere Abbey, on the outskirts of Whitchurch, Shropshire. The day started with Kelsie and her brides maids getting…

Bartle Hall Wedding – Louise & Hayley

So, it’s just over a month since we got absolutely soaked at Haigh Hall, when I met up with Louise & Hayley to talk about their wedding, and also to have a bit of a test run doing some pre-wedding photos. Thankfully, last weekend was much better with lots of sunshine for their wedding at…

Hunters Lodge Wedding – Jackie & Richard

What an absolutely brilliant day we had last weekend at Jackie & Richard’s wedding. Their whole day was perfect from start to finish, with close family and friends there to celebrate their big day at The Hunters Lodge in Crewe. Jackie and the girls were busy getting their hair and make-up done when we arrived,…

Avenham Park Wedding – Leanne & Ed

Following on from last week’s blog post, my feet have now recovered from doing a marathon 12 hour stint covering Leanne & Ed’s wedding. As mentioned in the previous post, the location for their ceremony had been kept a secret from their guests right until the very last minute when they were told to board…

Belle Epoque Wedding – Charlotte & Tom

This was our last wedding of the year, and to make it even more special, it was just 5 days before Christmas. The wedding ceremony was to be held at St. Oswald’s church in Lower Peover with the reception at The Belle Époque in Knutsford. I have known Charlotte and Tom for a long time…

Netherwood Hotel Wedding – Victoria & James

A very mild autumn day with the usual unpredictable British weather is what we were presented with for Victoria & James’s wedding day at the start of October in Levens, Cumbria. The gods were shining on them and half an hour before their wedding ceremony, the sun broke through and the blue skies made an…

Beeches Wedding, Standish – Claire & Chris

It’s just over a week since Claire & Chris’s wedding at The Beeches in Standish. After probably the warmest, sunniest July in years, the week leading up to their big day was wet and very unsettled. Luckily for us, the sun broke through on the day and everyone was able to enjoy the gardens at…

Wedding Photography Kit

This week sees another wedding shoot, and as part of my kit prep, I thought I would share an insight into just what gear I use and how it is much more than just turning up with a camera to snap photos. First off, I use a heavy duty rucksack that is more than capable…
