This is such an epic Lake District wedding that it is coming at you in two parts. Where to start? Well Emese is Hungarian and Lorcan, well he has been all over, France, Ireland, the Lake District to name but a few. They now live together in the Netherlands and it was from there that I had my first Skype conversation with the two of them about their wedding in …

Oh my God! I can’t believe it has taken me so long to get around to blogging Lucy & Lee’s amazing wedding at Styal Lodge in Cheshire. Not only are they the loveliest people to work with but they’re also not too shabby to look at either. And what about Lucy’s bridesmaids, her beautiful sisters, or ‘The Jerram Sisters,’ as I like to call them, like some sort of singing sensation …

Nikki and Mike’s wedding at Inglewood Manor in Cheshire was packed full of fun and laughter and beautiful smiles. Smiles that were contagious to say the least. Mike couldn’t help but smile when he saw Nikki come down the aisle and who can blame him. She looked stunning in her dress and that striking red lipstick. Nikki must have felt pleased as punch too as she saw her handsome groom …

One of the best things about being a Somerset wedding photographer is that I get to visit all of the beautiful locations that the county has to offer. For this one I headed to the golden fields of Compton Pauncefoot for Laura and Chris’ wedding. They live in Manchester but Chris’ parents live in the village at Compton so when the chance arose to get married in the church and …

When I arrived at White Chimnies and saw Elly in her dress she looked incredible and when she told me that it was from ASOS I was stunned. It suited her perfectly and I couldn’t wait to photograph her in it. Then I saw her sister/bridesmaid in her floral dress and got excited all over again. Again this was another peach from ASOS. Elly’s bouquet was grown by her Mum …

How remiss of me not to have shared Emily & Lee’s wedding with you at Packington Moor in Staffordshire. Both Emily & Lee have lost one of their parents so it was an emotional occasion but those looking on from elsewhere would have been proud of them both as looked so happy together. There were tears of course but that’s to be expected and they were tears of sadness and …

What happens when two graphic designers get married? You only need to look at the awesome details of Emma & Chris’ wedding to know that what you get is something pretty special.

You’ll also probably know that smiling is infectious and that was certainly the case at the Great John Street Hotel where Claire & Matt partied into the night. Before that though their friends and loved ones …

When you get engaged and you start to plan your wedding you can’t fail to have your mind blown by all the options available to you. As someone who’s getting married myself next year I have first hand experience of this. There are numerous blogs, magazines, Facebook pages and then of course, Pinterest. Oh yes, Pinterest, where time disappears like no other place known to humankind. It’s difficult not to …

Emily & Lee are getting married at Packington Moor in July which if, if you don’t know, is a really beautiful venue. Go have a look for yourselves. For their engagement shoot we had a wander in the woods nearby in Staffordshire and had some fun. It’s pretty clear to see how much in love these two are. Emily said yes after being whisked off to Florence for the evening. …

I first met Jess & Rob when Jess was a bridesmaid at Aileen and Ian’s wedding which I photographed as a Norfolk wedding photographer in August 2012. When they also asked me to be their photographer I was absolutely delighted and so off I went to Norfolk again for their wedding in September. Aileen was one of Jess’ bridesmaids this time around and it was great seeing them play out …

I’m not a huge fan of blowing my own trumpet but in this case I’m going to make an exception as the note that Ivonette and Ken sent to me was so lovely. They were married in September last year in Formby on a gloriously sunny day. They are one of the nicest couples you could ever meet and we hit it off straight away. Anyway, over to them… ‘From …

It’s hard to know where to begin with Hayley and Nick’s Cheshire wedding at Arley Hall because there was just so much wonderfulness! They had an incredible and intimate outside ceremony, and Hayley walked down her very own grass aisle through the flower borders. Arley Hall is also close to the family’s hearts, because Hayley’s Grandad (who you’ll find looking very dapper in some of the pictures) did some work …

Kate and Chris married in August at St. Mary’s church in Lower Slaughter in the Cotswolds, and had their wedding reception at Hyde Barn in Stow-on-the-Wold. They met in Australia while they were travelling with their respective friends, and Chris proposed to his girl in San Francisco. They had a yummy ice cream bike and a fabulous photo booth at their wedding to keep guests entertained. Lower Slaughter and it’s …

Natalie and Mark are having a super suave black tie wedding in December, at Warwick House in Warwickshire. I can’t wait to be there and be a part of their day to take some beautiful wedding photographs. We did their engagement shoot near to their home in Nuneaton – and as you’ll see in the photos we did have to dodge a few rain clouds. Not that we let it …

Well where do I start with Sarah and Adrian’s wedding? Let’s start with the location. It took place at Gawsworth Church in Cheshire , near Macclesfield, followed by a reception in a marquee at Gawsworth Hall right next door. After the service, which featured the best Bishop ever and a rousing rendition of Jerusalem, guests walked along the lane to the hall to be greeted with glasses of Pimms in …

Alison and Tony fancied some fun in the sun for their engagement shoot. As they live in Lancaster we thought Southport beach would be perfect for them. It was a beautiful day and really warm, so warm in fact that Tony’s ice cream pretty much melted before he had time to eat it. Seeing the smiles on their faces in these pictures made me so happy when I was editing …

On a lovely day in May Anth and Tim got married across two counties. Their church ceremony was held in Surrey and then they drove across the border to West Sussex for their reception at Rumbolds Barn. While Anth and the girls were getting ready at her parents house, Tim and the boys met up at the pub down the road from the church to settle the nerves. With a …
