West Tower Wedding Photographs / Donna and Wayne

Weddings | 05.06.2014

Well, this wedding reads like a “Who’s who” of the North West wedding industry!  And what a bloody pleasure it was to be involved in from start to finish!  I LOVED shooting Donna and Wayne’s West Tower Wedding Photographs – the day was literally amazing :)

Me, LOVE Bridal Boutique, Terry Fox, Silk Wedding Films, Howard Wing, Flower Design, The Coolers, Sonara Parker MUA, The Word is Love – it really doesn’t get much better!

Donna and Wayne – I know I’ve sat on your wedding for a few months, but I was waiting for the right time to post it – and that time is now!

Here’s the story of their brilliant day at West Tower

Meols Hall Wedding Photographs – Clare and Ian

Weddings | 09.09.2013

Clare & Ian are this year’s weather lucky charms!  Theirs was the first wedding this year that was truly beautiful weather and I like to think that a bit of that rubbed off and I was able to pass it onto so many other brides and grooms!  It really was a stunning day, filled with a lot of laughter, a lot of drinking (standard!) and a lot of soaking up the glorious sunshine!  Clare & Ian were married at the amazing Meols Hall in Southport and it was great to work with one of the best bands in the business, The Coolers, too :)

Here’s the story of Clare & Ian’s amazing day…

Sandhole Oak Barn Wedding Photography – Sarah and Andrew

Weddings | 05.09.2013

 

Sarah & Andrew’s wedding feels like a LONG time ago now and the main reason I haven’t blogged it on here yet is that we were lucky enough to have it featured on Brides Up North wedding blog – but it still needed a place on my blog too!

Sarah & Andrew were married at the amazing Sandhole Oak Barn in Cheshire and it was lovely as always to work with my lovely friends from Top Table , Top DJ Andy Murphy and the best band in the wedding business, The Coolers!

Here’s the story of Sarah & Andrew’s winter wonderland wedding :)

Sandhole Oak Barn Wedding Photographs – Katie and Paul

Weddings | 18.01.2013

I LOVE winter weddings :) I REALLY love winter weddings at amazing venues with amazing brides and grooms – and I got pretty lucky with these two as their venue falls into the ‘amazing’ category as do they!!! :)

I love photographing weddings at Sandhole Oak Barn – it’s such a stunning venue. I was particularly looking forward to Katie & Paul’s wedding there as I was getting to work with my lovely friends at Top Table Caterers (who always do an amazing job and their food is gorgeous!) as well as The Coolers (one of my favourite bands) and top wedding DJ, Gary Mills and I got to work with the awesome guys from Reel Vision for the very first time – what lovely chaps too!

A great day and night was in store for us all!

So I started off in the morning at Katie’s Mum and Dad’s house in Disley to shoot some gorgeous bridal prep photos…

Belle Epoque Wedding Photography – Sarah and Tom

Weddings | 29.12.2012

Well, it’s been an amazing Christmas, with some beautiful weddings and I wanted to squeeze one more in on the blog before New Year… :)

And it’s this very special wedding at one of my favourite places to photograph weddings – The Belle Epoque in Knutsford. A stunning venue, which suits winter weddings perfectly. Roaring log fire, intimate, atmospheric, what more could you need from a venue for a Christmas wedding?!!?

Sarah & Tom’s wedding started off with me meeting up with Sarah and the girls while they were getting ready…

Manchester Wedding Photographs – Pam and Ged

Weddings | 12.12.2012

I really miss Pam & Ged :( They were great fun to be around, they were so passionate and excited about every aspect of their big day and they were just so easy to get on with – I want to be their bestest mate forever!

From the minute I met up with them at The Restaurant Bar and Grill in Manchester I knew it was going to be a special day. Getting married at Manchester Cathedral, a short walk through town to The Restaurant Bar and Grill for drinks on The Terrace and then the most wonderfully intimate wedding breakfast celebration in RBG’s Private Room – what’s not to like?!!?

So let’s get started, with me meeting up with Pam & the girls at Pam & Ged’s awesome city centre apartment…

This was a very cool moment.  Ged had tracked down ‘Franco & The Dreadnought’ – a musician who used to be in a band called International One – who had written and recorded one of Pam & Ged’s most favourite songs.  Ged got in touch with Franco through Twitter and got him to play ‘Moonshine & Roses’ (amazing track!) for their first dance – how awesome is that?!?!

Styal Lodge Wedding Photography – Jess and Matt

Weddings | 20.09.2012

This was a gorgeous wedding at one of my absolute favourite Cheshire venues! I love photographing weddings at Styal Lodge – the venue itself, the team that work the weddings, the relaxed feel that you get as soon as you walk through the door – it’s an amazing place to get married!   I was also very excited about working with some of my great wedding friends including the BEST wedding band out there, The Coolers, top wedding DJ, Andy Murphy and the amazing caterers, Barretts.  I also had a soft spot for Jess’s gorgeous Amanda Wyatt dress too…!!!

Jess and Matt were having their full day at Styal Lodge, including Jess using the lodge’s stunning bridal sitting room to get ready in, so I arrived in the morning to see what was going on…

Belle Epoque Wedding Photography – Chrissie and Louis

Weddings | 10.02.2012

Another glorious winter wedding! OK, so it was a bit chilly, but the sun was out, the sky was blue – it was a stunning day! And talking of stunning – how depressingly gorgeous are Chrissie & Louis? And bloody lovely with it too! And two gorgeous daughters! And gorgeous families and friends – it was a beauty of a wedding!

I’d been looking forward to this wedding for a long time. I’m really lucky in that I get to work with clients who really value everything about their wedding day – their friends and family all being together in a great venue, great atmosphere, great entertainment, great photography. I got on with Chrissie & Louis from the first minute I met them and with some couples you really do get a sense of how much fun their big day is going to be straight away. I was also getting to work with some of my lovely wedding friends which is always a bonus too!

So…on with the preview – I met Chrissie in the morning at her house in West Didsbury just round the corner from ours – I could have walked it if I wasn’t so lazy ;)

Check out that gorgeous Jenny Packham gown from Aphrodite in Knutsford…

A first for me!  Chrissie decided, as she was ready in plenty of time, that she would just finish the washing up…!!!

Although Chrissie was ready in plenty of time, she still managed to be fashionably late to church…!!!

Carly and Ian’s Manchester Pre-Wedding Shoot – Sneak Peek!

Pre-wedding | 30.09.2011

GREAT afternoon yesterday with Carly & Ian in Manchester! Gorgeous weather, gorgeous couple – I didn’t need anything else! We started and finished in The Northern Quarter and also used a few other nooks and crannies in the city centre.

What started as a pre-wedding shoot quickly turned into a fashion shoot! Carly & Ian know how to throw some serious shapes! Check out the little sneak preview below…
