It's been almost a week since John & Nora's beautiful Sussex wedding.... a quintessential English-American affair with friends and family flying in from all around the world to celebrate in the stunning grounds of Firle Place - a beautiful country estate in the South Downs National Park in Sussex. I must say, this is the first time I've worked at Firle Place bit it is now firmly one of my favourite wedding venues!Read More

Before I close for a few days over Christmas to eat my body weight in mince pies , I just want to share a few images from my current wedding edit.... The fabulous Annmarie and James tied the knot at one of my favourite venues - Belmount Hall in the Lake District last weekend. It was an intimate day surrounded by their close family and friends and it was a total honour and privilege to capture their day for them. A full blog post will be coming soon but for now, here are their wedding highlights!Read More

A month ago to the very day, Lucy & Dean got married at Low Wood Bay Resort and Spa in the Lake District. A very wet and thundery day most definitely did not dampen their spirits. Lucy & Dean tied the knot in the stunning newly re-furbshed Windermere Suite and afterwards during the drinks reception, a fabulous steel drum band played on the lawn. A lake cruise (dip) on Windermere followed the wedding breakfast and afterwards, surrounded by their lovely guests, they partied hard and danced into the early hours of the morning! What a fantastic day - Congratulations again and happy 'One Month Anniversary' Lucy & Dean, I can't believe how fast that month has gone... here are your wedding highlights!Read More
Ah, weddings! I love them! I can't get enough of them and I can't actually think of a better day to be part of! So much is going on from bridal prep right through to the end and once the nerves have dissipated and the champagne's flowing it's just one big massive party - jam packed full of emotion, merriment and celebration! I'm unbelievably lucky to be able to call this my job and I am so thankful to all my couples for allowing me to tell their story with real documentary style photography.Read More
I'm so excited to share Chloé and John's gorgeous December wedding with you. It was so much fun to shoot. The ceremony was at Norbury Church in Hazel Grove - Chloé's dream venue, and the reception at the Hallmark Hotel in Handforth. Chloé looked stunning as did her bridal party and John and all the lads all looked dapper in their suits. It was a chilled out day, spent with their family and friends and it was as always, a complete honour to be a part of it and capture it for them.Read More
Vicky and Sam got married at a lovely intimate church - St Johns The Evangalist in Byley and their Reception was held at Haslington Hall.
They spent the day surrounded by their lovely family and friends and partied hard into the night in the marquee. It was such a fantastic day to be part of, there were so many lovely thoughtful special touches. I have never felt more welcome at a wedding and made to feel like I was part of the family - Thank you!Read More
Throw back to the middle of August, their wedding day was relaxed and informal with the service held at Sutton St James Church in Macclesfield followed by a brilliantly chilled out reception at The Windmill Inn in Whiteley Green. It's a beautiful little pub with a certain jé ne sais-quoi about it! A perfect setting for an intimate summer wedding! And my goodness - summer it was (a distant memory now!). We took a little detour to Bottoms Reservoir (a spot which Michèle and Tony visit frequently together) on the way to the Windmill for some relaxed un-posed couple portraits which were a great opportunity for them to have some alone time to gather their thoughts.Read More
It's been a while since I've blogged as I'm in the middle of peak wedding season, but I just couldn't wait to share Mel & Tara's wedding with you.
They tied the knot on Saturday 20th August at Hartford Golf Club - The theme was their 'Seven Year Hitch' and their wedding was nothing short of amazing! Mel & Tara are head over heels in love. They are two of the nicest people I've had the pleasure to meet and I'm so honoured I got to spend the day with them! So much thought and attention to detail had gone into their wedding - with garden games, Harry the Kidz Bus and an ice cream van... The tables were adorned with lyrics from their favourite songs their guests enjoyed a lovely BBQ with not one but two wedding cakes including a rustic 'Cheese' cake.Read More
