Alex and Andy - Wyresdale Park, Scorton

Wyresdale Park in Scorton, Lancashire is an absolute hidden gem. Just off the M6 near Lancaster, nestled in the Forest of Bowland, this family-run estate dates back to 1856 but has recently been rebranded, relaunched and promoted as a boutique camping and wedding venue. Alex and Andy booked me quite a while back and had clear ideas on how they wanted me to approach their day. Discreet but with some of my trademark 'epic' portraits. Hold my...

Sophie & Adam - Broadoaks

Sophie & Adam had set their big day for 27th May 2019 at Broadoaks Country House. I had shot at Broadoaks Country House  several times in the past and has to be one of my favourite venues to date. Broadoaks County House is nestled in the beautiful Lake District, with stunning scenery and the team thay have are second to none. They are meticulous in what they do, and they do it extremely well.  I had bumped into Sophie & adam at...

Paige & Jonathan at The Village Hotel, Cheadle Hulme

I met Paige and Jonathan at the National Wedding Show at Event City in Manchester back in March 2018. Their wedding at The Village Hotel was to be the quickest booking to date! Paige and Jonathan had booked their special day for May 26th 2019. The wedding ceremony was to be held at their favourite church, St Chad's in Blakley with the wedding reception at The Village Hotel in Cheadle Hulme. Paige was having her Bridal Prep with her four...

Chris & Kathryn

We met Kathryn at a Wedding Fair at The Imperial Hotel in Blackpool. A meeting was arranged and in no time we had a booking and they had their Pre wedding Shoot. Chris & Kathryn celebrated their special day on Easter Saturday, 20th April 2019. We were experiencing the first heatwave of the year, with the sun beating down, it really was the most perfect day.  Chris & Kathryn's wedding was to take place at  The Great...

Beeston Manor Wedding Photographer - Charlene & Andy

Andy and Charlene got married on the most beautiful late summers day at Beeston Manor in Lancashire.  Clear blue skies, a blazing sun and a host of fun people set on celebrating this fantastic couples special day.  The weather was quite similar to when we had our Pre-Wedding Shoot at Beacon Fell in Lancashire. The drive over to Beeston Manor took me just under an hour which gave me plenty of time to have a think of the shots that I...

Villa Levens Wedding Photographer

Hayley and Adams South Lakes Wedding in a 140 year old 5 Star Victorian House Pre Wedding Shoot For their Pre-Wedding Shoot I took Hayley & Adam to Beacon Fell on possibly the foggiest and frostiest day of the year!  During our two hour bimble around the forest we got to know each other, captured some great images and they learnt to relax in front of the camera.   The Villa...

Merrydale Manor Wedding Photographer - Kajal & Sunil

Sometimes a Wedding Day comes along that fills me with a whole mix of emotions and Kajal & Sunil's Merrydale Manor Wedding was certainly one of these.  I was excited, although I've shot Hindu Weddings before and they never fail to be filled with love, emotions, drama, noise and colour, I was aware of just how busy this one was going to be. I was nervous too, Wedding Days for Photographers are quite stressful, we only get the one moment, we...
