Lake District Family Photography on Lake Windermere

Back in the summer I was lucky enough to document this awesome family up in the gorgeous Lake District. Lisa, John and their two little beauties Gabriella and Charlie were so much fun to spend a couple of hours with!

As with all of my family shoots the location for this session was totally down to the family. They picked somewhere that means something to them and that they love doing. On this occasion it was a picnic by the lake followed by a bit of exploring then on to their boat for a trip out on to Lake Windermere. By letting them decide what they want to do for the shoot not only does it make everyone more relaxed but gives them memories of something they love doing together, as a family.

I love this family. They are genuinely lovely people and instantly made me feel welcome. Gabriella and Charlie instantly felt comfortable in front of the camera as I played and joked around with them.

CHRIS AND DANIELLE'S WEDDING AT THE VILLA, WREA GREEN

 Chris and Danielle were married at the beautiful St Cuthbert’s Church in Lytham on a gorgeous summers day. After a morning of hanging out with Chris and Groomsmen and Danielle and her Bridesmaids they both met at this stunning old church for their wedding ceremony.

Following the church service we took a short drive to the village of Wrea Green where the celebrations really got under way at The Villa.

With plenty of laughs, awesome guests, a surprise video message from past X-Factor contestant Wagner and some insanely perfect evening light this wedding was an honour to have documented.

CHRIS AND LEANNE'S SUMMER WEDDING AT SANDHOLE OAK BARN, CHESHIRE.

Chris and Leanne's summer wedding at Sandhole Oak Barn in Cheshire was certainly one to remember. It was a day jam packed with sun, fun and plenty of awesome people! 

They had picked a selection of brilliant wedding suppliers to make their wedding a cracking day. My good friends at Flower Design were responsible for the amazing flowers on show. It was great catching up with and watching Robin Kershaw from DFC who did an amazing job hosting the day. I also had a top day working along side my old friend Mark from Studio54D who was on video duty. 

I had such a great day hanging out with Chris, Leanne and their two little dudes. They picked such a stunning venue in Sandhole Oak Barn. Everything about this venue rocks! 

This wedding had it all, laughter, emotion, beauty and so much more. 

Grab a brew and check out their day below.

Lancashire Family Photography at Stanah Country Park - Hannah, James, Rudy and Daisy

Introducing four wonderfully lovely humans to my blog. Hannah, James, Rudy and Daisy invited me along to hang out with them recently at Stanah Country Park in Lancashire. Their family shoot was filled with fun and laughter. I am so happy I made the decision to photograph more families. I absolutely love meeting new people and capturing such precious memories for them. 

Stanah Country Park is a bit of hidden gem, situated on the banks of the River Wyre. It's perfect for family adventures with walks, woodlands and an awesome park for various ages. We often take our girls up there for some fun so I know it fairly well. It made for the perfect setting for Hannah, James, Rudy and Daisy. They did some playing on the park and had some fun in the woods. We made memories and captured this time of their lives.

Nick and Steph's Bartle Hall Wedding 

Nick and Steph's summer wedding at Bartle Hall was everything a wedding should be and more. It was a pleasure being back at Bartle Hall, one of Lancashire's finest wedding venues, to document the wedding of this lovely couple. 

I met Nick a few years back when I was giving a talk at Lytham Photographic Society. Fast forward a year or so later and a newly engaged Nick was enquiring with me to photograph his up-and-coming wedding at Bartle Hall. I got to know Nick and Steph a little more when we hooked up for their pre-wedding shoot in York, one of my favourite cities in the UK. You can check out their Pre-Wedding Shoot here

Nick and Steph's Bartle Hall wedding fell right in the middle of summer here in the UK. We were lucky enough to have some awesome weather. Throw in to the mix lots of brilliant guests, a bouncy castle, ice cream, a random gnome, my first experience of a groomswoman, a guest rabbit and plenty of alcohol and you have one insanely good wedding. 

Great Hall at Mains Wedding - Lee & Katy

Lee and Katy's Great Hall at Mains Wedding 

Lee and Katy are such a chilled couple. I knew from the first time I met them that their wedding would be relaxed yet packed with drunken fun. They picked the stunning Great Hall at Mains for their wedding reception and the beautiful Singleton Church for the ceremony. 

The Great Hall at Mains is one of my local wedding venues and I love shooting there. It's packed with character and is filled with natural light and set in beautiful grounds. 

There were so many amazing moments in Lee and Katy's wedding. They had the excellent Paul Guard entertaining guests throughout the drinks reception and wedding breakfast. 

Here's a selection of my favourite images from Lee and Katy's wedding at The Great Hall at Mains. Enjoy.

St. Annes Pre-Wedding Shoot

I met up with the lovely Matt and Angela in St. Annes recently for their Pre-Wedding Shoot. We struck lucky with a gorgeous summers evening. Matt doesn't do beaches so where would Angela choose to do their St. Annes Pre-Wedding Shoot...a beach of course! To be fair to him, he didn't complain once. 

It was a first for me as we started out with a game of bowls, a game in which Matt and Angela frequently partake in. After a quick stroll around the lovely Ashton Gardens we hit the sand. The light was perfect and the company even better.
