Ameesha & Saagar's traditional Hindu Wedding

Attention to detail I love shooting Indian Weddings.  It is such a big deal for an Indian couple to choose a non-Indian to photograph their wedding, because after all these celebrations are so multifaceted and there is so many different ceremonies that you could imagine it would be hard for a non-Indian to keep up.  The simple trick is to do as much research as possi[...]

Fran & David's Black-Tie Wedding in Italy

A Black Tie Affair It's not often I get the opportunity to shoot a wedding abroad, and so when Fran and David asked me to come to Lago Maggiore, Italy, to spend the weekend with them, I was thrilled.   As it was black tie, one of the first things I did was to head down to my tailor in Manchester to have a new suit made for me - If you know, me, you'll know I love a g[...]

Shona & Adam's Formby Beach Wedding

Bohemian Pastel Perfection at Formby Beach Shona & Adam's beautiful boho festival style wedding took place at the Formby cricket club.  It's a bit unique because the club only does 1-2 weddings per year and only at special request during one week of the summer. I must say that these kinds of 'wedding venues' are always my favourite, rather ironically, because [...]

Eaves Hall Wedding Photography

Kimberley and Joseph I’ve photographed a few Eaves Hall weddings in my time, I can tell you (now I sound old. Well I’m not, I’m a strapping youngster!). The bride and groom – in this case Kimberley and Joseph (what can I say about the pair of you? Charisma, humour, openness and awesomeness!) - have show-stopping grounds to stroll through, whilst arty and *buzzword* n[...]

Their Dunkenhalgh Hotel wedd[...]

Palm House Sefton Park Wedding Photography

Colette and Gareth With temperatures taking a downward turn this week, and the wind managing to uproot a massive buddleia tree in my garden (?!), this wedding sprung to mind; something to warm us all up! When someone mentions the Palm House Sefton Park to me I feel a frisson. Yes! A frisson; one of excitement! To be asked to take wedding photographs at this spectacul[...]

Kilhey Court Wedding Photography

  Some people have huge, infectious smiles; Debbie is one of those people! A smile that lasted all day long - it made my jaw ache just looking at it! That smile has got to be one of the reasons Luke fell for her in the first place. What a warm and friendly couple these two are. It was my absolute pleasure to shoot their Kilhey Court wedding photography. I also[...]
