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.

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.

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.

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.
