Traditional Church Wedding Photography
24/12/2017

Mark and Charlotte's Church wedding I was due to exhibit at a Wedding Fayre close to Delamere Forest. Several weeks prior to the Fayre I was contacted by the Wedding and Events planner of the Venue, Charlotte. She was looking for a Professional Photographer for her own wedding. I provided Charlotte with some links to my work, and not long after I received her booking confirmation for a Traditional Church Wedding. First time I had received a booking...

Oak Royal Golf and Country Club Wedding Photography

 Oak Royal Golf and Country Club Wedding Photography | Wesley and Vicky On occasion it does happen that I receive a booking and I am not available. I understand the painstakingly long hours that goes into finding your photographer, so it is always with deep regret when I have to inform the Bride and Groom that I am unavailable. Even more so when that Groom is the younger brother of my oldest and closest friend. On this occasion I was due to be...

Why Bridal Prep Is So Important
13/12/2017

Your Bridal Prep I cannot tell you the amount of times I have heard "I don't want Bridal Prep", or "I don't want my photograph taken without any make-up on".  I simply cannot stress enough the importance of Bridal Prep. Bridal Prep acts as the prologue to your story that unfolds throughout your day. It gives the Groom and your Family an insight, allowing them to be a part of it without actually being present. Bridal Prep also gives you the...

13/12/2017

From Military Policeman to Lancashire Wedding Photographer?   People often ask how I ended up changing from a career as a Military Policeman to becoming a Full Time Professional Wedding Photographer in Lancashire? The answer is quite simple, my passion for Photography has been there for as long as I can remember. I joined the Royal Air Force when I was 19 years old as a Military Policeman. Fortunately for me this also included some camera...

Broadoaks Country House Hotel and Cathedral Cavern Wedding Photography

A Lake District Wedding in a Cave I often get asked "Which has been your favourite Wedding to photograph?" and I reply honestly that I do not have a favourite, no two weddings are the same, each is different in its own right. However, Rob and Emma's Lake District Wedding has to be the most extraordinary wedding I have photographed to date.  Let's face it, it's not every day you get to work in a cave! From my initial meeting with Rob and Emma I...

Goodbye to The Photo Chap
11/12/2017

As some of you may have noticed, we recently went through a company rebrand (not something I would ever do again).  I honestly thought it would be an easy task, simply change the logo's on a few images, copy everything across to the new website and I would be back up and running in time for dinner.  Oh no.  There are video's to re-edit, entire blog posts to re-write, the company insurance to amend, even the camera's needed to be reprogrammed so...

Sam Joins Neil Ridley Photography.
01/12/2017

Sam's Journey From International Air Stewardess to Business Manager   By mid-summer of a very busy 2017 it was becoming more and more evident that as my business evolved and grew, I would need to employ a second body. I needed someone who could help with the administration and management side of the business. My wife, Sam helped out when she could but she was busy with her own career. However, it would appear that fate would lend a helping...
