NATALIE + MATT

So we look forward to every wedding as a photographer, so many different special memories there to be captured means each and every wedding is special and unique in it’s own way. There is always the one wedding that stands out for you though, the one you really, really can’t wait for and that you’ve been excited about ever since you took the booking. And it doesnt come much better than Tuscany, an absolute gem of a place. Beautiful open countryside, amazing food, even better wine and villas aplenty. Let me tell you this wedding had it all!!!

Maddy + Lee

Well what a bloody wedding this was. A beautiful Jenny Packham dress awesome bride and groom and an amazing venue. I’d never shot at Knipe hall but when I went for a reckie a few days before I knew it was going to be great and I wasn’t wrong. Rustic and in the middle of nowhere you couldn’t ask for a better venue to have a big party and thats exactly what this was. We weren’t too far from Kendal Calling but Im pretty sure we were having just as much fun. The Seals as they always do, absolutely rocked it. This truly was a wedding to remember.

KATIE + TOM

This really was a dream to photograph, a fair themed wedding with an awesome fun loving couple in Dunham Massey. The idea of making everything yourself and really going to town on DIY for weddings can really scare people but these two embraced it and absolutely nailed it. From coconut shires to the table decorations and everything in between this really had everything. I was fortunate enough to have kelly from kelly annes photography second shooting with me for the day and with the ever so talented jb shooting the video we were onto a winner.

LOIS + LEON

Well it might be a while since they got wed and my blogging has not exactly been kept upto date but that doesn’t mean its too late. I’ve gone and made 10 new blogs from the last couple of years and I’m going to share them all over the coming weeks, they are all amazing weddings with heaps of individuality from some of my favourite local venues and a couple from a little further afield. To say Im a little excited to share these is an understatement. Kicking things off though is this one. Park House Barn is a firm favourite of mine, the 16h century barn is incredible and was as good as I’ve seen it look for Leon and Lois’s big day, the bunting and lighting made for some great dramatic shots. Having known Leon from years ago playing football it was great to meet Lois who was equally as cool and laid back… What a cracking wedding!

Adam + Soph

If ever a wedding was a party this was it. Adam and Sophie got married late last September in the back garden of her childhood home in Witherslack. Well actually they got married the day before and then had some sort of ceremony that was as comical as it was touching, comical for all the right reasons of course. The drinks flowed and it wasn’t till dark that the very entertaining speeches were done with and the feast came out. As uncle was falling asleep the band came on and instantly the marquee erupted into action. Absolutely brilliant wedding!!!

A little note from Sophie.

“The thing I realised when you’re handing out loads of money to people for a wedding is how important it is to have nice suppliers! And we had some great ones

Ale barrels – Hawkshead Brewery. This seemed to involved the boys spending half a day at the Brewery when they went to pick it up.
Wine – Majestic
Marquee/chairs/tables/carpet – PSR Marquee Hire. The owner’s Paul Richardson and what a great guy. Dead down to earth.
Band – My Eleventh Toe. Chester based but obviously willing to travel
Food – Maz. The photographs and the beef seem to have been our greatest investments! They’re what gets mentioned the most. Maz couldn’t have done a better job; she really did get it perfect.
Flowers – Anthony Cox at Flourish Outlet. Brilliant chap from Manc who completely got what I wanted. We had so many flowers we had to find something to do with a 3rd of them. I arranged the flowers myself coz I like doing stuff like that but he would’ve only charged £100 more to do them himself.
Vintage suitcase and fancy dress chest – auctions
Photo frames/vases/candle holders/tiny wedding signs that I ordered thinking they were big – Homesense, auctions, car boot sales, Not On The Highstreet and my house!
Dress – Fiona Cooper, The Wedding Boutique
My shoes – Oasis
Suits – Ads and Charlie had little matching ones from good old M&S
Dried flower headdresses for the bridesmaids and confetti – Artisan Dried Flower Company (apart from the amazing purple confetti that my step-granny did)
Lights (marquee ceiling, hedgerow, and uplighters for the trees) – a chap called Tony Blair (!) who my dad’s known for years.
All cutlery/plates/glasses/coat racks etc – Corkscrew Hire. You just pack it away dirty at no extra cost.
Invitation design – I designed them with Faye Williams at Studio Thirty Two.”

Ant + Sal

Another wonderful wedding last year in the very pretty Kirkby Lonsdale, a quaint little market town full of photographic opportunity with lovely little side streets and the famous Ruskins view. It was a great privilege to be asked to photograph Anthony and Sally’s wedding and they didn’t disappoint me being the ultimate in chilled out bride and groom. They both looked amazing and from start to finish everyone was laughing and smiling which is what weddings are all about. The reception was at Platos and they did a wonderful job of providing some top notch food and a lovely setting for this wonderful little wedding.

Indea + Steve

So it’s a fair while since I lasted posted a few wedding blogs on here, now with a new website to update I think it’s about time I put a few of last years weddings on the blog. The first featured wedding was an awesome wedding at The Swan at Newby Bridge and it was my absolute pleasure to do the wedding photography for this lovely couple from Leeds. Indea looked stunning in her Jenny Packham dress and Steve looked equally as impressive in his tweed threads. Steve originates from South Africa as The Swan was seemingly over run by all the family and friends that had made the long flight North. Good job there was plenty of biltong.

House PARTY

Last month I had the pleasure of photographing Kat and Brads ace wedding at Morland Hall. When I first met the pair of them and they were telling me about the wedding and what they had planned I was getting a little excited. It was quite literally one big house party for a couple of days… albeit I was only going to be there for one of them but… It was going to be a good!!! And it was better than good, a fab venue, awesome decorations that Kat had put together and wonderful people not to mention the immense Danonsax and the brilliant Howard Wing who knows just how to get a party started with his show. What an amazing day!

Top of the Popes

Wow… what a way to kick off the new year with this unbelievable wedding in London. They don’t do things by halves down South do they? I first met Gareth and Ray at a wedding I was a guest at about 6 years ago but when they contacted me and asked if I’d like to photograph their wedding I was quite excited. Not only are these guys uber trendy but they’re hilarious and make the perfect couple. After literally dancing down the aisle we headed to MC Motors, typically used for fashion shoots and music videos. To say this was anything but awesome is an understatement, every room was a photographers dream with cool stuff everywhere. I was like a kid in a candy shop… a great way to start the New Year, I just hope Rays cooking is as good as her wedding planning! Apparently Im dropping in next time Im down

An Autumn Wedding

Back in November of last year I was lucky enough to photograph Ryan and Judiths beautiful wedding at Grayrigg church before moving onto Roundthorn country house just outside Penrith. It was great to see Helen from Definitions Mobile Beauty who did a fabulous job as ever of Jude’s make up and as always we had a great laugh as the girls got ready. I love this time of the year for photography, the oranges on the leaves are so pretty and the low winter light is so much softer than a bright summers day. It was a fantastic occasion with a massive night do just getting into full swing as I headed away!!
