Chorley Family Photography

I had so much fun with The Latham's recently when we met up for their Family Photography session in the Yarrow Valley Country Park in Chorley. It was my first time meeting them and we got on straight away. As usual I just let them play and have fun as a family and I tagged along capturing some memories for them. 

There was loads of laughter, tons of cheekiness, a few tears and plenty of mud and sand to play in.

JONATHAN AND KATIE'S WEDDING AT SANDHOLE OAK BARN, CHESHIRE.

Sandhole Oak Barn is one of those venues that seems to have evaded me over the years. I have been excited to shoot here for some time and what a wedding this was to pop my Sandhole cherry. Jonathan and Katie are so lovely and have such a great bunch of people surrounding them. 

SANDHOLE OAK BARN WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Set in the stunning Cheshire countryside Sandhole Oak Barn is such an incredible wedding venue. I was lucky enough to spend the day here capturing Katie and Jonathan's Sandhole Oak Barn Wedding.  

Drinks flowed, the weather was more than kind and a there was plenty of laughter and particularly bad dancing. Mix this with serious amounts of love, a killer venue and some ridiculous skills from the North Wests top DJ - Andy Murphy and you've got one hell of a wedding!  

Yorkshire Family Photography - Jose, Kerry & Luca

I was honestly so excited for this Family Photography session with Kerry, Jose and their little dude Luca. Not only was it an excuse to catch up with Kerry and Jose, as I hadn't seen them since I shot their awesome Bartle Hall wedding some years back, but I could not wait to meet the little beaut that is Luca. 

I travelled across to Yorkshire, where Jose and Kerry are now living, to capture some memories of Luca in the almost-brand-new stage of just 3 months old. I love photographing and documenting families in their own home as I really get the chance to capture their personalities and get to see them in their true comfort zone. After plenty of cuddles, lots of milk, a well needed nap and little dip in the bath I left them to their day.

CHRIS AND ELIZABETH'S WEDDING AT SPRINGFIELD HOUSE, LANCASHIRE

My second ever wedding was at Springfield House in Pilling, back in 2009 and I haven't been back there since. I was excited to be back there for Chris and Elizabeth's Spring wedding at Springfield House earlier this year. 

I had originally met this lovely couple at Elizabeth's sisters wedding a couple of years back and was honoured and excited when they got in touch to do their wedding photography. Chris and Elizabeth are so down to earth, I just knew this wedding was going to be a good one!  

My day started at their home in Bispham where they were getting ready together with some friends. It's becoming more popular for Bride and Grooms to start the day getting ready together before splitting off to get dressed. I like it as it gives them more of the day together but still allows for the impact of seeing each other, all dressed and ready, for the first time at the 'alter'.  

SPRINGFIELD HOUSE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Springfield House is a quaint country house in the beautiful Lancashire countryside. It is a gorgeous setting for intimate weddings. Chris and Elizabeth were married in the conservatory on a beautiful spring day. There was serious amounts of fun, laughter, drinking and dancing with the awesome Keytars providing some immense live music.

ANDREW AND JACINTA'S WEDDING AT ST JOHNS CHURCH AND THE GREAT HALL AT MAINS, LANCASHIRE

The first time I met Andrew and Jacinta I instantly warmed to them. Not only are they a ridiculously beautiful and smiley couple but just two of the loveliest people you're likely to meet. Saying all that it was such an honour to be chosen by them to capture their beautiful wedding at Mains Hall.   

GREAT HALL AT MAINS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

After spending the morning with Andrew and his Groomsmen at the awesome accommodation at Mains Hall I head to meet up with and document the girls and Jacinta at her parents house. The mood was relaxed from the start of the day and the smiles were as prominent as ever.

After a beautiful wedding ceremony at St. Johns Church, Andrew, Jacinta and their guests made their way down the road to The Great Hall at Mains, one of Lancashire's finest wedding venues. 

Entertainment was provided by the awesome Bamboo Fontaine  and it was awesome working alongside Jon Bird Wedding Videographer

Ambleside Wedding Photography - John & Liz

JOHN AND LIZ'S LAKE DISTRICT WEDDING IN AMBLESIDE

John and Liz were married at the The Waterhead Hotel in Ambleside. This boutique Lake District hotel was such a perfect setting for their intimate winter wedding. The Lake District is one of my favourite places so having the opportunity to discover new venues and locations is a real treat. 

WINTER WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Driving up to the Lakes on the cold winter morning, with the rain pouring, I thought that we were in for another wet day in The Lakes. Even in the rain this cumbrian beauty spot feels special. It's often said that The Lake District has it's own micro-climate and rain can come and go in minutes. It was no different on John and Liz's wedding day for as soon as I arrived at the award winning boutique hotel the rain submitted to gorgeous clear skies. 

After meeting up with John and his entourage in a nearby pub I head over to meet up with Liz and hers at the hotel. I love the preps in the morning as not only do they let some of the key players of the wedding get used to me being around and know that they don't need to pose and look for the camera but it makes for great opening chapters in the story of their day. 

This beautiful intimate winter wedding in the stunning English Lakes was a pleasure to be a part of and was filled with many happy memories of such a wonderful couple and their family and friends. 

Lancashire Family Photography - Steve, April, Jack, Ollie & Theo

I was treated to a couple of hours in the presence of this wonderful family recently in Cleveleys, Lancashire. Steve, April, Jack and Ollie have recently welcomed the little dude that is Theo into their family so I was invited to spend a couple of hours with them and document their lives. I had so much fun with them all. Capturing such priceless memories for wonderful families makes me happy. My relaxed approached means very very little posing meaning they get to do what ever the hell want to do and have fun doing it.

PRE-WEDDING SHOOT IN YORK

I met up with Nick and Steph for their York pre-wedding shoot back in Spring. We had a great morning wandering around this wonderfully historic city. From York Minster to the city walls and everything in between, including the cool streets of the Shambles. Thanks Nick and Steph to introducing me to this gorgeous old city.
