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. 

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. 

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.

Downham Village Wedding - David & Emma



Meeting and photographing new and interesting people is one of the main things I love about shooting weddings. Seeing and discovering new places is another reason. David and Emma’s Downham Village wedding included both of these elements which made for an incredible day.

David and Emma, the beautiful, fun and smiley couple that they are, invited me along to their wedding in the stunning hidden gem that is Downham Village in Lancashire. The Village is situated at the foot of Pendle Hill just down the road from Clitheroe. It is quaint and largely unspoilt. There are no overhead wires, yellow lines on the roads or satellite dishes on the houses. It is a beautiful little village and it was a privilege to have spent a day there capturing the simply stunning wedding of David and Emma.


After an hour or so with David and the groomsmen on the morning of the wedding, I head off to Emma’s parents home at the other end of the village. Their house is beautiful, very idyllic and fitting with the surrounding environment. Emma and her Bridesmaids had a fun morning of pampering before getting in their dresses and making the short(ish) walk across the village to St. Leonards church. I followed along documenting this wonderful part of Emma’s day, greeted by village locals along the way.

After a lovely service, their guests were ushered to the drinks reception on the open grounds next to the church. I managed to borrow the newlyweds for a few minutes to allow them some time to themselves. Then, after a confetti line along the church path and a local tradition of dropping coins over the church gate for the local youths we all made the short journey to the town hall for their wedding reception.

The rest of the day was filled with laughter, dancing and plenty of drinking. This was such a good wedding from start to finish.

Cragwood Country House Wedding Photography – James and Jen



Back in the depths of wedding season 2016 I headed up north to the stunning Lake District to shoot the wedding of James and Jen. I absolutely love the Lake District. It has amazing venues and breathtaking views. Not a bad combo for a wedding!

James and Jen got married at the Cragwood Country House Hotel overlooking the magnificent Lake Windermere. It was my first visit to this gem of a wedding venue and I absolutely loved it.


I met up with James and his groomsmen at another local hotel where they were curing their hangovers with a couple of pints. After a short trip back to the Cragwood I met up with Jen and her bridesmaids where they were getting themselves ready for the day ahead.

Once ready Jen and her Dad made the short walk to the outside gazebo where James was waiting for his Bride-to-be ready for their garden ceremony. After a short but beautiful wedding ceremony everyone headed back up to the main house for the drinks reception. Dinner and speeches then commenced and once they had wrapped up, James and Jen lead their guests down to the water for a boat ride on Lake Windermere.

Some gorgeous evening light allowed for some lovely intimate portraits of the newlyweds…and their ridiculously beautiful dog Barkley. James and Jen went against the grain a little with no first dance so the party got started as soon as the DJ was ready. Throwing the tunes out and getting the bodies moving was one of my fave all time DJ’s, the crazy good Gary Mills.

This was such a brilliant wedding from start to finish. I loved being James and Jen’s Cragwood Country House Wedding Photographer. Sit back and enjoy my best bits

Andy & Rebecca - Great Hall at Mains Wedding Photographer


Andy and Rebecca said I do at one of Lancashire’s finest venues, The Great Hall at Mains. Their Great Hall wedding had everything from crazy-good dancing to some of the best speeches I’ve had the pleasure of hearing.

It was such a pleasure capturing Andy and Rebecca’s wedding. They give off such warm vibes and I cannot be happier with the moments and memories I have captured for them.

David & Emma - Pre-Wedding Shoot - Downham Village


I caught up with David and Emma recently, ahead of their wedding, in the picturesque village of Downham in Lancashire. After a catch-up we headed off around one of Lancashire’s most stunning little villages for their Downham Village pre-wedding shoot and my own guided tour.

I’m thoroughly looking forward to their wedding in this beautiful part of our country.
