Heaton House Farm Wedding Photographer
30/10/2017

Amazing Indian Fusion Wedding   I am very fortunate to be a member of a circle of highly Professional Photographers who call on each other when needing a Second Shooter. However, never in a million years did I expect to be opening an inbox from Liam Crawley asking if I would like to second shoot for him.  Hell yeah! The guy is a genius, a master of his art! I use the following analogy for people who don't quite understand the significance of...

Second Shoots-Sefton Palm House Jewish Wedding Photographer
13/10/2017

Jewish Wedding At Palm House, Sefton Park.   Picture the scene from Only Fool's and Horses's, with Del-Boy and Rodney sat in their little yellow van. They had just left Sotheby's after securing £6.2 million. That was Sam and I after I received my second invitation from the very talented Liam Crawley asking me to shoot for him again, this time at a Jewish Wedding. I was thrilled to be asked, and I knew I would be in for a spectacular day. The...

Blackpool Wedding Photography
07/10/2017

Jon-Paul and Lynsay's Blackpool Wedding.   Having had a career in the Licensed Trade I was friendly with Jon-Paul, the Licensee of The Albion in Bispham.  He knew I had changed career path to become a Wedding Photographer, and one evening asked my availability for his wedding in August. I had originally blocked this week off for some much needed R&R. However, not wanting to miss the opportunity of shooting what I knew would be a...

Preston Wedding Photographer

https://vimeo.com/232868187 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...

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...

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...

North Wales Wedding Photographer - Mark & Rhiannon   Its not often I get to photograph a friends Wedding Day and this year I am lucky enough to have shot Mark & Rhiannon's and still have another three friends weddings to shoot this year! Mark and I have known each other since the time I was the manager of a night-club in Llandudno and he was kind enough to contact me when he set the date for his wedding to Rhiannon. On Saturday...

Marriott Worsley Park Wedding Photography - Kirsty & Martin
08/02/2016

Marriott Worsley Park Wedding Blogging is not something that comes naturally to me, but occasionally I attend a wedding that I enjoy so much, I just have to tell someone the story. This Wedding at the Marriott Worsley Park was just amazing! A very good friend of mine, Daniel Murrientes , is also a wedding photographer and occasionally he asks me to come along to his jobs as a second shooter. I'm always guaranteed a good day, so when he asked me to...
