Merewood Wedding Photography - John and Rachel


John and Rachel’s Wedding at The Merewood

 John and Rachel were married in the back end of summer at the insanely gorgeous Merewood Country House Hotel in The Lake District. Their wedding jam packed with fun and action from the start.

After spending the morning with John and his groomsmen and then Rachel and her Bridesmaids I set off to find the church they were to be married in. Following a beautiful church ceremony their guests head off to the Merewood to continue the celebrations while John and Rachel took a chilled drive around Lake Windermere. We stopped off for a couple of portraits along the way before meeting up with their guests back at The Merewood.

John and Rachel had chosen the awesome Phil Colbert of PC Roadshows to host their wedding breakfast. I’ve many weddings with Phil and each one has been filled with fun, laughter and many memories. If you’re after a memorable wedding breakfast then you should be sure to check out PC Roadshows for hosting it.

The fun continued into the night with one of the North Wests best wedding bands The Deadbeats!

The Villa Wrea Green Wedding Photographer - Chris and Danielle



 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.

Sandhole Oak Barn Summer Wedding Photography - Chris and Leanne



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.

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.

Northumberland Wedding Photography - Mark and Emma

Mark and Emma's Church and Tipi Wedding in Northumberland 

I had been looking forward to Mark and Emma's wedding in Northumberland since they booked me to be their wedding photographer. Firstly I had never had the pleasure of visiting this beautiful part of our country and secondly I knew just what Mark and Emma had planned for their big day. 

On the morning of the wedding I arrived at the Tipi in Warkworth to meet up with Mark, who was busy putting the finishing touches to the decor  with the help of his groomsmen and some other friends and family. I arrived to torrential rain and thought we were in for a wet one! Luck was on our side and the shower passed quickly. 

After leaving Mark I set off to meet up with Emma and her Bridesmaids in the quaint little town of Amble, right on the Northumberland coast. Emma and her girls were in good spirits, ready for the day ahead. 

A short drive from Amble and I arrived at St. Pauls Church in Alnwick ready for what was to be a beautiful church ceremony. Once Mark and Emma had managed to free themselves from their guests we made the drive back to Warkworth. Before their arrival at the tipi we nipped off for a quick 10 minutes to Warkworth Hermitage to give the newlyweds a bit of time to themselves.

Tipi weddings are always so much fun and this one was no let up. Over the next few hours Mark, Emma and their guests enjoyed lots of drinking, dancing, food and some brilliant speeches. Once the speeches were done and dusted we nipped off to do a little bit of exploring around Warkworth. 

The incredible Vibetown were on duty keeping the dancefloor rocking at night and the legend Adam Wing kept me company for the day creating video magic. 

Stanley House Wedding Photography - Andy & Jenny

Andy and Jenny's Stanley House Wedding

This wedding was brilliant from start to finish! Andy and Jenny's Stanley House wedding was one absolutely packed with emotion, laughter and fun. They had certainly picked the perfect venue to stage the best day of their lives.  Stanley House is one of those wedding venues that I just love coming back to. It is situated in the Ribble Valley in the heart of Lancashire. 

Andy and Jenny are both filled with energy and fun, which meant their wedding was going to be one hell of a day! They had both decided to get themselves ready at the venue which, logistically made things nice and easy for me. It meant I could jump in and out of both the groom and bride preps to capture all of the getting ready, laughter and relationships between them, their family, bridesmaids and groomsmen. 

Summer wedding at stanley house

Keeping in theme with the day their ceremony was one of high emotion and laughter. Following on from their wedding ceremony their guests enjoyed the sunshine and all that the bar had to offer. It was certainly turning into a proper British summer wedding. The flow of the day continued nicely into the wedding breakfast. The responsibility of keeping Andy and Jenny's guests entertained fell to the legend of a wedding entertainer Howard Wing. For those that know of Howard you will know that he can certainly get a room bouncing and he did just that. 

The day continued to give me moment after moment to capture including Andy and Jenny throwing their wedding cake off a flight of stairs in order to turn a negative in to a positive and a sunset that I would have gladly paid serious money for! 

As if the night couldn't get any better Andy and Jenny had the awesome Dax on Sax owning the dancefloor and making sure it stayed rammed well into the night. 

It was a fantastic wedding filled with brilliant people and top class suppliers. My day was made even better working alongside the fantastic Adam Wing, who was on video duties.

Adam and Hayley's wedding at The Villa Wrea Green 

Adam and Hayley were married at the historic St. Chad's church in Poulton-le-Fylde on a ridiculously sunny summers day. From the off everyone was in great spirits. After capturing a few shots of Adam preparing for the day ahead, at his parents house I set off to meet Hayley and her bridesmaids. After a very short drive in to the centre of Poulton, following the sound of the ringing bells, I arrived at St. Chads and awaited the arrival of the Bride. Following their beautiful ceremony Adam and Hayley continued their celebrations at The Villa in Wrea Green. As guests arrived the sunglasses were on and the glasses continually topped up!

I'd class The Villa Wrea Green as one of my local wedding venues and it's always awesome to be back there. It's hard to pick any faults with it as a wedding venue - the location, the setting, the staff and not forgetting the food are all incredible! 

Adam and Hayley held their wedding breakfast and evening reception in the Pavilion Marquee. This room is perfect for creating an excellent evening atmosphere.  

This was a day filled with lots of happiness, drinking and dancing. The awesome Bamboo Fontaine kept the party going well into the night.
