Catherine & Liam's Pre-Wedding Shoot at Reddish Vale Country Park
16/09/2017

  Reddish Vale Photography Today I shot a Pre-Wedding Shoot for Catherine & Liam.  I met them at a wedding fayre a couple of months ago and they were lucky enough to win the shoot with me simply by entering themselves into the draw. The weather looked a bit iffy all day and it tried to rain on us at least once, but luckily we escaped a complete downpour.  Catherine & Liam were good sports and didn't shy away from climbing over logs or...

Preston Wedding Photographer
07/09/2017

Three Days, Three Counties. A Traditional Muslim Wedding for Muhammed & Sana. The day I met Sana and discussed her Muslim Wedding it was a gloriously sunny April Spring day. One of the first nice days after a long, cold and miserable Winter. Sam and I were due to exhibit at The Grand Venue in Clitheroe. I have to admit, I was tempted to set up the stand and leave it unmanned. The temptation to explore the quaint town that is Clitheroe left me...

Yet another new website
11/08/2017

It's my annual website overhaul time again!  I last gave the site a facelift in June 2016 and it looked quite nice (at the time).  However time rolls on and it was looking a bit sad, neglected and dated.  So I spent a few days hunting around, stalking other photographers and stealing ideas and I finally came up with this new layout :) Image heavy, as it should be for a photographer, cleaner, faster and it has shiny buttons that work! Have a...

Lancashire Pre-Wedding Shoot - Polly & Brandon
23/06/2017

On one of the hottest, brightest and stillest days so far this year, I took Polly & Brandon up to one of my favourite places for their Pre-Wedding Shoot.  Beacon Fell has a great mix of forest trail, woodland, open vistas across miles of hillside and even a duckpond! Just a few steps off any trail and the forest swallows you, ensuring privacy for a photoshoot.  We spent 2 hours trampling our way around the Fell top and only crossed paths with...

Oaks Hotel Burnley - Sam & Aidan
30/05/2017

Sam & Aidan at the Oaks Hotel, Burnley Bridal Prep I joined Sam & Aidan at the Oaks Hotel Burnley pretty early in the morning.  I love Bridal Prep time as it gives everyone a chance to get used to the camera being in the room and the atmosphere is always fun and interesting. Sam was with her two daughters, best friend and her mum.  The makeup artist and hairdresser were minutes away and apparently, Aidan had set off on his way to the...

Wedisson Award!!
04/02/2017

  Wedisson Award Winner!! I'm really happy to announce that I have won an International Wedisson Award in the 23rd collection. The winning photo is from Rob and Emma's Lake District Wedding which took place in Cathedral Cavern near to Langdale. Despite it being one of the most technically challenging locations I have shot in, I loved shooting in Cathedral Cavern. Access is via a steep path, followed by a short dripping tunnel which opens up...

Bartle Hall Wedding Photographer - Sarah & Dan
25/07/2016

Bartle Hall Wedding Photographer The wedding of Sarah and Dan at Bartle Hall is the second wedding this year where I can call one of the couple a long standing friend.  I have known the Bride Sarah for what seems like forever, her personality and easy going nature just makes her one of the nicest people you could meet. Sarah has grown up a lot since we first met, you may have seen her in the news recently here or here or in the news again for...

Garstang Country Hotel Wedding Photographer
30/06/2016

Best Western - Garstang Country Hotel and Golf Club This was the first time that I had shot a wedding at the same venue that I got married in 17 years previously and this venue has just got better and better with time. Danya booked me last year to shoot her wedding and I had been looking forward to it ever since.  In all our chats Danya was bubbly and excited, exactly how a Bride should be. I started off the day with Danya and her sister Daneka...
