DANNY + CHARL // WOODSIDE FERRY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY // 09.09.17

Back in September I had the huge honour of photographing the wedding of two really good friends of mine at a really unique venue in Birkenhead, Woodside Ferry Terminal. I've known Danny and Charl for many years and I was looking forward to capturing the day almost as much as the party afterwards! With a 4PM ceremony things were very chilled in the morning at the couples house for bridal prep, which gave us plenty of time to shoot some perfect detail shots around the house before I headed off to Port Sunlight to meet up with the boys. When I arrived back things were in full swing at the house and the camper van was outside...

KERRY + EDDY // Inglewood Manor Wedding Photography // 30.09.17

Back in 2016 I shot a wedding at the gorgeous Sheldrakes in Heswall, and the very talented hairdresser on that day was one Miss Kerry who was getting married herself the following year. We hit it off and she loved the photos that I took that day, so before I knew it I was booked to photograph her wedding to Eddy the following September at Inglewood Manor. It's incredibly humbling to be chosen to capture the wedding of another supplier, because they meet photographers all the time in their job and could probably have their pick of the best. Sadly though she was left with me, so I thought that I better make sure I do a good job! Bridal prep...

SUE + DAVE // DIY Backyard Wedding // 26.08.18

When Sue and Dave got in touch with me back in June, it wasn't under the best circumstances. Sadly the photographer they had booked had vanished without a trace, and they were left with a big gap missing from their wedding planning. Thankfully, although I was fully booked for the year I was free on their date so I was able to squeeze it in. And when we met up to talk plans I was glad that was the case. They were planning to say I do down the road at Wallasey Town Hall before stopping off for their wedding breakfast round the corner from where they live at Grove Hotel, with the main wedding reception all happening in their back garden. Yes that's right, their own...

LINDSEY + CHRIS // Lion Quays Wedding Photography // 22.07.18

Almost all of my bookings come from referrals from past couples, occasionally people find me online and book through the website, and sometimes I meet engaged couples by chance. But for the wedding of Lindsey and Chris back in July, I was booked by a friend of my Mums for a friend of hers who was getting married. Links don't get much looser than that! Regardless of how we came together though, I got on with Lindsey and Chris from the moment we met and we planned out a great day together at Lion Quays Hotel in Oswestry where they would be tying the knot. Lindsey's friend Karen who had booked me was taking care of all of the venue decoration which meant that the place would be looking top notch, so...

HANA + KEV // Craxton Wood Wedding Photography // 30.07.17

July saw me travel all over the country for summery weddings, but one of my favourites was right here in Chester at Macdonald Craxton Wood. I was shooting both photo and video together, so I needed the best team available by my side. Val from Flying Canadian was second shooting stills and I drafted in one of the best in the business from Manchester for video duties, Paul from Ginger Beard Weddings. Together we were a dream team, it just has to be said. Anyway, things were well underway when we all arrived at the bridal prep, and we spent the morning switching between Hana and the girls and Kev and the boys as everything was happening very close by. Although the weather was looking great, it was a bit risky...
