Mains Hall Wedding Photographer - Helen & Ant
10/07/2018

Helen and Ant I first met Helen and Ant at a wedding fayre I was exhibiting at in Blackpool at the Hilton Hotel.  Ant appeared relaxed about his wedding plans, whilst Helen had an air of excitement that was contagious, and I quickly became as excited as she was for her wedding plans! As is the case at many fairs, it was several months later that Helen and Ant confirmed they would like to book my services, and I was thrilled. Pre Wedding...

Albright Hussey Wedding Photographer

Albright Hussey Wedding Photographer | Sam & Hannah When Sam's Mum contacted me to enquire if I was free to photograph Sam and Hannah's wedding, to say I was thrilled would be an understatement! I had known Sam and his family from an early age. His family were stationed on the same Military base as me and Sam and my Son were best friends and completely inseparable. Even after moving away Sam would often visit and join us on family...

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.

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...

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
15/12/2017

 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...

Broadoaks Country House Hotel and Cathedral Cavern Wedding Photography
12/12/2017

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...
