Eyam Hall Wedding // Derbyshire Wedding Photographer


Rachel & Adam chose to tie the knot on the hottest day of the year, in the beautiful Eyam Hall in Derbyshire. As it was such a amazing day, they were lucky enough to be able to have their ceremony outside, in a beautiful spot in the hall’s gardens.

After the I do’s were said & the pair were officially declared Husband & Wife, it was off to the gardens to enjoy a Pimms reception in the sunshine. Once everyone had cooled off & worked up an appetite it was into the marquee for the most epic afternoon tea I’ve ever seen!

The marquee was decorated beautifully, with paper lanterns hanging from the roof & mis match vintage china plates for everyone. The star of the show was Lily, a 12 year old Labrador, who lay quietly at her mum’s feet through the meal & speeches, looking quiet the part in her floral collar!

Rachel & Adam, thank-you so much for asking me to be your photographer & I hope you’re having an amazing time off on your adventures! <3

 

Beth & Dave's Welsh Wedding at Tower Hill Barns


A Tower Hill Barns Wedding in North Wales

Once again I was back at the lovely Tower Hill Barns in North Wales, this time for Beth & Dave’s big day!

The pair chose to say their I do’s in the quaintest little Welsh church before heading over to the barn to celebrate in style as Husband & Wife. After a bit of a grey start to the day, the sun came out in full force just in time for the guests to enjoy drinks on the terrace and to whisk Beth & Dave off again for some evening portraits. After a pretty rainy week it was an honour to be blessed with such beautiful light to work with!

Beth & Dave, thanks so much for asking me to be a part of your beautiful, beautiful day. I hope you’ve had an amazing honeymoon & looking through your blog will ease any holiday blues <3

A Mottram Hall Wedding in Cheshire

Jess & Lee chose to tie to knot at the luxury Cheshire wedding venue, Mottram Hall. After delaying the wedding by a year due to the exciting news that they were expecting their beautiful son, it was a much anticipated day & with the added bonus of little Albie being there to witness it all!

Jess & Lee, thanks so much for asking me to be a part of your day & I hope you’re having an amazing honeymoon <3

 

Marie & Paul's Garden Party Wedding at Mere Brook House


Mere Brook House Wedding, Wirral

Marie & Paul planned the perfect garden party wedding at Mere Brook House on the Wirral. This was my first time at Mere Brook and I arrived to see a beautiful old manor house, giant pink tassel balloons, lawn games, alpaca’s & SUNSHINE... So I knew it was going to be a good day right from the off!

Marie was busy getting her make-up done upstairs by her super talented mum. Once she was in her dress & wedding ready it was off to the church to an eagerly awaiting Paul. After a beautiful ceremony & a showering of confetti it was back to Mere Brook House to continue the celebrations!

Now I love a bride with a red lip & I love it even more when they spend the whole day grinning like Marie did. And the best part? Marie’s chosen shade of Chanel lipstick was actually called ‘Marie’. It was obviously meant to be!

Marie & Paul, thanks so much for asking me to be a part of your day. I hope you’ve had an amazing honeymoon & that you love your photos! Can’t wait to share the rest with you <3

 

Emma & Scott's Welsh Manor Wedding at Tyn Dwr Hall


Emma & Scott Tyn Dwr Hall Wedding

I’d been so excited in the run up to Emma & Scott’s big day. Firstly, because I couldn’t wait to get back to the beautiful Tyn Dwr Hall & secondly, because Emma & Scott are AWESOME and I couldn’t wait to see them both tie the knot!

As Emma walked down the aisle looking a million dollars, Scott was completely overcome with emotion. He did the best groom-cry I’ve seen in ages & made my job very difficult shooting through blurry eyes!

Emma & Scott, thank-you so much for asking me to be a part of your special day. You guys were just as fun & laid back as I knew you would be and it really was a pleasure to be involved. Hope you had an amazing honeymoon & hopefully this gallery will ease some of the holiday blues <3

P.S. A massive thanks to Ayesha for being a fabulous 2nd Shooter!

 

Sam & Keyvan's Tipi Lake District Wedding by the River


Outdoor Tipi wedding in the Lake District

Keyvan & Sam got ready together in The Boathouse in Pooley Bridge - a beautiful little building with its own jetty & balcony overlooking the lake. It couldn’t have been a more stunning location & the perfect way to start off their wedding day. After the pair were suited and booted we headed out on the jetty for some pre-ceremony portraits and to make the most of the idyllic Lake District setting.

We then set off into the village where the tipis had been set up, tucked away in a little field right next to the river. Keyvan & Sam said their I do’s under a tipi surrounded by their friends and family. They chose to do the speeches through the ceremony which worked perfectly and meant more time later on for eating, drinking & dancing!

The pair planned their wedding day by prioritising what was important to them and ditching the traditions that weren’t. They had a DIY help-yourself bar & the best dim sum street food for their wedding breakfast (seriously, the best.) They didn’t want to do a first dance but the DJ kicked off at 5pm and the dancefloor was jam packed all evening! It was the perfect day & it was exactly what they wanted.

Sam & Keyvan, thanks so much for asking me to be your photographer! I hope you’re having an amazing honeymoon & enjoy looking through these photos whilst you’re away <3

 

Aimee & Dan's Intimate Elopement at St George’s Hall in Liverpool


A St Georges Hall Elopement in Liverpool

When Aimee got in touch to ask if I was available for her and Dan’s elopement in Liverpool, I nearly bit her hand off! Although I’ve done a lot of intimate weddings with only a handful of guests, I’ve never photographed one where there were no guests at all and it’s been a bucket list experience for me for ages!

Even more exciting was that Aimee & Dan asked me to be an official witness for them too, which was an honour I’ll never forget!

I left my house at silly o’clock in the morning as I didn’t want to get caught in traffic getting into Liverpool City Centre so early on a Monday morning. After grabbing a giant coffee I wandered over to St George’s Hall to wait for the pair to arrive. The sun was shinning as the light was beautiful, it was the perfect setting for such a lovely day.

Aimee & Dan soon arrived followed by their very talented florist who was doubling as their 2nd official witness! The service was so touching, made all the more special due to the pair only having each other to focus on. After they were announced Husband & Wife, we set out to make use of the amazing light we’d been blessed with!

Aimee & Dan, thank-you so so much for choosing me to be a part of your day. It was such an honour & it’ll stay with me forever <3

North Wales Wedding Photography // Anglesey Engagement Shoot


I’ll forever be grateful to Rachel & Kristian for introducing me to the beautiful Newborough beach in Anglesey! We booked a date in for their pre-shoot months in advance and with the pair travelling up from London, a lot was riding on the weather being on our side.

We got so lucky! Not only was it dry, it was sunny, warm & the beach looked incredible!

Rachel & Kristian, you guys were perfect! Counting down the day’s now till I’m back in Anglesey for your wedding :)

 

Kelly & Michael's Titanic Hotel Wedding in Liverpool


Titanic Hotel wedding in Liverpool

My favourite moment during Kelly & Michael’s day? It’s absolutely got to be when Kelly’s veil took off whilst I was photographing their portraits! It not only detached itself and blew off... it travelled so high and so far that it was never to be seen again!

I already knew that nothing could knock the smile of their faces but after Kelly burst out laughing as she watched her veil blow off in the wind, it definitely confirmed that they were having the best day ever & no hiccup on the day would ever stop them!

The Titanic Hotel in Liverpool is a super cool, urban venue with a huge reception room lined with festoon lights and vintage posters of the titanic itself. It’s been on my list of bucket list venues for ages and it definitely didn’t disappoint!

Kelly & Michael, thanks so much for asking me to be your photographer. I had so much fun & absolutely loved being a part of your day <3

 

This is what 2018 looked like!!


2019-01-21_0001.jpg

2018, WHAT A YEAR!

37 weddings // 8 engagement shoots // 16,951 delivered images

Every year that passes by, I worry how long I’ll love this job for & whether I’ll eventually start to tire from the craziness that wedding season brings.

But each & every year I love it more and more.

I get more of a buzz from traveling up and down the country more times than I can keep track of. I feel more every time I witness two people making the biggest declarations of their lives. I cry more, a lot more.. I try to fight back the happy tears but there’s always something that gets me at each and every wedding.

I shot my 150th wedding this year & I can remember each & every one of them.

I can sit here and think about what I’d do instead of this job but I can’t imagine myself ever giving all of this up.

THIS YEAR HAS BEEN CRAZY GOOD!

Thank-you to each & every one of my beautiful clients, who have made it my best year yet!
