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.

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.

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.
