Lancashire Pre Wedding Photo Shoot - Rebecca & John
27/04/2018

Lancashire Pre Wedding Shoot Rebecca & John   With Rebecca being 37 weeks pregnant we had to abandon my usual haunt of Beacon Fell for our Pre Wedding Shoot as the ground was a bit slippery and I had doubts about my ability to deliver a baby so far from civilisation. So we met up at Scorton Lake just outside Garstang which is a lovely circular walk through the woods around the lake and much flatter than the obstacle course that Beacon Fell...

Lancashire Pre-Wedding Shoot - Katie & Adam
15/04/2018

Lancashire Pre Wedding Shoot | Katie & Adam Beacon Fell Wedding Photographer Well it's not long now until I get to shoot the wedding of Katie & Adam by the sea-side in Blackpool, so we decided to get together and sort out their Pre Wedding Photo Shoot.  As usual it took place at the beautiful Beacon Fell.  Unlike the last few Pre Wedding Photo Shoots I have done there, the weather was flat, dull and the cloud was menacingly low without...

Pre Wedding Photo Shoots
11/04/2018

Pre Wedding Photo Shoots Lancashire Wedding Photographer Quite simply, I love Pre Wedding Shoots, or Engagement Shoots or E-Shoots, or whatever people want to call them this week.  A Pre Wedding Photo Shoot is a great way for me to get to know my Brides and Grooms in an informal way before the hustle and bustle of the wedding day.  I even have a favourite spot for Pre Wedding Photo Shoots, it is Beacon Fell near Garstang in Lancashire.  Its an...

Award Winning Lancashire Wedding Photographer
07/04/2018

Wedisson Award Winner Again! A short time ago I took a couple to Formby Beach for a Post Wedding Shoot.  We had great ideas about a 'Trash the Dress' style shoot where the couple would be in the sea but after a couple of hours in the surrounding forest we were all getting rather cold, so the thought of getting wet was more than we could cope with! Dave and Lisa were amazing to work with - relaxed, comfortable with being posed and obviously very...

https://vimeo.com/neilridleyphoto/chloeandbeej Chloe & Beejesh   Chloe and Beejesh's big day was to take place at one of my favourite venues, the prestigious Peckforton Castle in Cheshire.

Lancashire Pre Wedding Shoot - Sharon & Lewis
21/02/2018

Lancashire Wedding Photographer - Pre-Wedding Shoot Sharon & Lewis - Beacon Fell, Lancashire In preparation for Sharon and Lewis's wedding this year we wandered off to Beacon Fell in Lancashire for our Pre-Wedding Shoot.  These shoots are a great opportunity for a couple to get used to being in front of the camera and to see how I approach portraits.  Lewis and Sharon booked me after seeing the images from the wedding of JP & Lynsay and...

Second Shoots - Chester Zoo Wedding Photographer
15/01/2018

James and Jade at Chester Zoo   When a friend and fellow photographer Daniel Murrientes asked if I would second shoot for him at one of his weddings at Chester Zoo, it was an easy yes! Animals have always held a special place in my heart, choosing a Kenyan Safari for my Honeymoon, and having visited without fail a Zoo or Animal Sanctuary on every family holiday. Sometimes walking straight back out, often staying all day and returning the...

Maenan Abbey Wedding Photographer | Julie and Arfon Julie and Arfon contacted me after being recommended by their colleagues, Rhiannon and Mark. We had a meeting via Skype and not long after contracts were signed and we all looked forward to their big day. North Wales has always been a firm favourite after having lived there for three years, and I always look forward to returning whenever I get the opportunity. Julie and Arfon were getting...

Why Groom Prep is Important
07/01/2018

Why Groom Prep is Important I often get asked "Why would I need a second photographer?", this is one of the very reasons! Unless the groom is getting ready at the same venue as the Bride or lives a short driving distance away, the need for a second photographer will be apparent. It's also a must for anyone who wants a record of both Bride and Groom Prep.   With the main focus being the Bride, sometimes the Groom's story is...
