James and Ella’s Wedding at Rossall School in Lancashire

James and Ella are childhood sweethearts. They met at Rossall School in Lancashire when they were both pupils there. So it seemed, many years later when James had ‘popped the question’, that there was only one place they had their hearts set on having their wedding day!

Rossall School is situated on the Fylde coast, just outside Blackpool. It is set on a historic 160 acre campus looking out over the picturesque Lancashire coastline.

James and Ella spent their mornings getting ready for the day ahead, separately, at their parents homes. Once ready Ella head to the grounds of Rossall School, in style to meet her husband-to-be. They were married in the church on site at Rossall before carrying on the celebrations in a marquee in the grounds.

There were some fantastic suppliers on hand to make their wedding day a memorable one. The catering was taken care of by the fantastic Twelve Event Management. Wowing the guests during the day with his close-up magic skills was Darren Robinson. On video duty was the legendary Adam Wing and keeping the guests dancing the night away were the fantastic Funtime Frankies.

James and Holly’s Marquee Wedding in Lancashire

The sun was certainly shining for James and Holly’s marquee wedding. I arrived with James and his groomsmen, at his parents house in Tarleton, early in the morning. After a substantial breakfast the boys took to the garden for a kick-about and a bit of cricket before heading back inside to make the transformation to Groom and Groomsmen.

A short drive away Holly and her bridesmaids were in the full swing of make-up, hair and practicing their dance routine for the coming evening!

Once ready Holly set off to meet her husband-to-be at St. Michael and All Angels Church in Croston for their wedding ceremony. After a beautiful church ceremony their guests lined the path leading to the church, armed with handfuls of confetti, ready to shower the newlyweds.

The wedding reception was in a marquee back at James’ parents home. Slowly but surely the wedding guests arrived and welcomed the new Mr and Mrs as they entered the grounds to cheers, hugs and high fives.

The rest of the day was filled with lots of amazing food, plenty of booze and serious amounts of laughter and dancing.

Stanley House Wedding - Mat and Sam

Mat and Sam’s Wedding at Stanley House

One of Lancashire’s premier wedding venues, Stanley House, was the perfect setting for the wedding of the wonderful couple that is Mat and Sam.

This boutique country hotel is set in the stunning Ribble Valley. I love shooting weddings here and Mat and Sam’s was no let up.

Mat and Sam came to me shortly after they got engaged. I had shot Sam’s sisters wedding a few years ago so knew the family well and had no doubts that this wedding was going to be as equally epic.

We had a little rain early on but that didn’t stop this beautiful couple from smiling. The rain soon vanished and made way for some calmer weather as the day continued to get better throughout.

Karl and Amy’s Wedding at Preston Marriott

The first time I met Karl and Amy at their house I instantly warmed to them. After spending an hour or so with them I knew their wedding at Preston Marriott was going be fantastic. Karl and Amy have two awesome little boys, one of which turned 3 on the wedding day and the other was Karls best man! This little family are so down to earth and full of love and life. Right up my street!

Their wedding day was ridiculously sunny August day at the Preston Marriott. My day started out with Amy at her parents house. It was lovely to catch up with the wonderful Jo Coole Make-Up Artist who, as always, did a fantastic job. After leaving Amy I head to the wedding venue to meet up with Karl. He was, as most grooms are, feeling a mixture of nerves and excitement and he couldn’t wait to see his Bride-to-be!

The day was a lovely mixture of fun, giggles and good times. As we had such lovely weather there was plenty of playing on the expanse of open space the Marriott has to offer. The day for me was very chilled with lots of lovely interactions and plenty of fun moments. It was made even better with the arrival of the awesome PC Roadshows who kept all the guests entertained throughout dinner!

Matt and Jenny’s Wedding at Sandhole Oak Barn

Matt and Jenny’s wedding sums up everything I love about about my job. Their Sandhole Oak Barn wedding was an absolute joy to be a part of. Firstly Matt and Jenny are themselves such lovely, warming characters who make everyone around them feel happy. Their wedding was filled with like minded individuals. Add into this an incredible wedding venue, a stunning summers day, lawn games and lots of alcohol and you have a wedding to remember!

Summer Wedding at Sandhole Oak Barn

I love Sandhole Oak Barn. It’s one of those venues that looks amazing no matter what the weather decides to do. Luckily for Matt and Jenny their summer wedding was a sunny one. This meant we could play lawn games, drink on the verandah and enjoy exploring the surrounding grounds creating some amazing golden-hour portraits.

My day started out with Matt and his groomsmen where the laughter was rife. Matt has a such a pleasant demeanour and bares a constant smile on his face. Jenny is very much the same and the time I spent with her and her bridesmaids was equally as fun. I could tell from the off we were in for a good day.

The rest of the day panned out as well as I guess the newlyweds would have dreamed. Fun, laughter and general merriment ensued.

It was lovely working alongside the fantastic Top Table Events and Sid and Olive who made everything look amazing run smoothly.

The Samling Wedding - Adam and Ellie

Adam and Ellie’s Luxury Lake District Wedding at The Samling

I’m not too sure where to start with this wedding. It had everything you might want in a wedding, a luxury Lake District venue with top end food, stunning views over the glorious Lake Windermere, a team of amazing suppliers and dozens of awesome guests.

The Samling has to be one of the best venues I’ve had the pleasure of shooting a wedding at in the North West of England. It is situated perfectly overlooking the stunning Lake Windermere. When decorated with beautiful floristry by the incredible Flower Design this venue simply blossoms. There are so many little areas to discover for portraits and the main dining room is open and bright with views out towards the lake.

Wedding at The Samling

Adam and Ellie are down to earth, lovely humans and their luxury wedding at The Samling was a pleasure to photograph. I arrived in the morning to a common Lake District shower. The rain very politely subsided once the ceremony had begun however, leaving nothing but clear skies and sunshine. The entire wedding day ran super smoothly with the newlyweds and all of their guests enjoying every second. The food was beyond compare and I know it was a very important part of the day for Adam and Ellie. Guests were kept entertained throughout the day with the mystifying Chris Hurst, reading minds and leaving people amazed! My day with the gorgeous Bride and Groom ended with an outdoor first dance, overlooking Lake Windermere as the sun faded beyond the horizon.
