When Han emailed me saying that her and Phil wanted me to photograph their wedding, I felt so honoured as I've know the pair since high school where they first met. And then they told me they were tying the knot in Greece and wanted me to fly out with them - one word... YAS!
Han & Phil chose to get married at the stunning St Paul's Bay in Rhodes, on a little wooden jetty over the water. After a champagne toast on the boat whilst cruising round the island we headed to Tambakio Restaurant to carry on the celebrations in style. Tambakio is a stunning venue right on the beach overlooking the water, with olive tree's decorating rustic wooden tables & sand under foot - you couldn't get a more perfect destination wedding venue.
After some uhhh-mazing food there was a surprise appearance from the Greek dancers, who took pleasure in teaching Phil & the groomsmen some rather questionable dance moves. That could only be followed by Phil's 'Classic Dance' half hour, where we danced on the beach to Pretty Green Eyes and other cheesy *ahem* amazing dance classics!
Thanks so much for asking me to be a part of your beautiful, beautiful wedding guys. Hope you love your preview.. can't wait to show you the rest! <3
I first met Polly in high school when we were just eleven, so naturally I was over the moon when she asked me to photograph her & Zac's wedding day! It's always an honour witnessing the happiest day of someone's life, but when you've know them for this long.. it's definitely got an extra special something.
After all the amazing weather we've had, it was sod's law that we were due a huge thunder storm on the day of the wedding. It rained pretty much the whole drive there despite me having my fingers crossed all morning. As Pol was getting ready with the girls in Tyn Dwr Hall, patches of blue skies creeped in & an hour later it was blue skies & sunshine all round.. Such luck!
The weather stayed great all day & we couldn't have asked for more - until we went out for some more photographs after the speeches & wedding breakfast was over. It started absolutely chucking it down, so we grabbed some umbrellas and headed back inside.. only to find a huge rainbow on the other side of the venue. It was the cherry on top of an already perfect day!
Pol & Zac, thanks so much for asking me to be a part of your day. I hope you love your photo's & can't wait to show you the rest!
& last but not least, a huge thanks to my 2nd Shooter, Helen <3
After Jo & Damo's pre-wedding shoot in Delamere Forest (see here!) I just knew their wedding was going to be a dream & they definitely didn't disappoint!
It was the perfect example of a Manchester City Centre wedding at it's finest! A swanky Air B&B apartment for bridal prep, a luxury Midland Hotel ceremony & topped of nicely with a reception at the quirky, urban venue, Hope Mill Theatre. The entire wedding party even had the Manchester Bee incorporated into their wedding gear - the bridesmaids wore Lily Rose, Manchester Bee necklaces & the groomsmen, Manchester Bee tie pins. See? Perfect!
Jo & Damo, I hope you're having an amazing time in Mexico! Thanks again for asking me to a part of your amazing day <3
Lucy & James chose to get married at the beautiful Shrigley Hall, in Cheshire. Their ceremony and reception both took place in the Tilden Suite, an amazing converted monastery made into an incredible & unique space for weddings, perfect for their big day!
After Lucy & her bridesmaids were wedding-ready, they headed down to the Tilden Suite to an eagerly awaiting James. The room was decorated with fairy lights hung from the ceiling which made the perfect back drop for a touching ceremony.
Thanks so much for having me guys, it was an absolutely pleasure to photograph your day! Hope you had an amazing honeymoon :)
Chloe & Sean
Blea Tarn Pre-Wedding Shoot, Lake District Wedding Photographer
Chloe & Sean won my Engagement Shoot competition a couple of weeks ago & as they got engaged in the lakes, it seemed perfectly fitting to head back there for their shoot. It was a pretty terrifying drive up some very steep hills & dirt paths to Blea Tarn but thankfully, we all made it there in one piece!
Chloe & Sean were an absolute dream to photograph & that combined with the epic setting of the lake & topped off with Mille the beautiful cockapoo puppy, it was the perfect shoot!
If you're thinking of having a pre-wedding shoot, why not use the opportunity to go somewhere amazing and magical like this place? :)
Kate & Tim
Pre-Wedding Shoot, North Wales Wedding Photographer
Pre-wedding shoots are always a great idea, but pre-wedding shoots somewhere like this place are the BEST idea!
I'll happily jump in my car for an hour or two to be able to shoot somewhere amazing, so don't be shy with your location ideas. You might not be able to head down to the beach or climb a mountain in your wedding gear, but we can go absolutely anywhere for your pre-shoot...
so don't hold back :)
Kate & Tim, you guys were so so good, bring on August for the real thing <3
What a year 2017 has been!
7 engagement shoots
and a grand total of 18,172 photographs delivered to my lovely couples <3
2017 was my fourth year in business and my busiest so far too! I always get asked whether I think I'll get bored shooting weddings but it's impossible... it just keeps getting better and better! It might sound cheesy but it really is a huge honour to be invited to share the most important day of someone's life with them.
Thank-you so much to each and every one of this years lovely couples, my year wouldn't have been the same without!
Bring on 2018!!
Mandy & Paul chose to tie the knot in the beautiful & iconic Manchester Town Hall. Both Paul & Mandy grew up in the UK however later moved over to Hong Kong but felt it was only right to have their day in the UK with their friends & family. They wanted to combine both English & Chinese traditions which made for such a special & unique day.. & a lot of outfit changes for Mandy!
Chloe & Paul got married at the super stylish Liverpool city centre venue, 30 James Street. The hotel has the hugest bridal suite I've ever seen! It's decked out with all the grandness of the Titanic and with two giant beds big enough to fit the whole bridal party in, it makes the perfect 'night before the wedding' venue.
I was so excited for Chloe & Paul's big day as I love the cosy, magical feel of a proper winter wedding and waking up to see snow falling was such a bonus! The newlywed's were absolute troopers as we popped outside into the snow to get some photographs on the terrace.
Chloe & Paul, thanks so much for asking me to be a part of your day. Hope you have an aamazing time in Dubai <3
