Toyin & Ed’s Yoruba Engagement

We’d never photographed a Yoruba engagement before, so this was quite the experience!  An explosion of colour and a beautiful celebration of families coming together – it was wonderful to see. Toyin & Ed got married the very next day (they had actually been engaged a bit longer than one day), so that’ll be up...

Sophie & Robert’s Wedding

Sophie and Robert had their beautiful wedding at Sophie’s parent’s farm in Lancashire.  It was one of those lovely rare occasions where we only had a 10 minute drive home at the end of the day 😊 There were lots of familiar faces, from weddings we’ve previously shot.  It was lovely to see all the...

Harriet & Olly’s Wedding in Lincolnshire

It was such a pleasure to photograph this gorgeous wedding in Harriet’s family home over in Lincolnshire a few weeks ago.  There wasn’t a dry eye in the place during the speeches (understandable – they were damn good). The flowers were amazing, the jive first dance was awesome, the sun mostly shone, and the two families...

Chrissy & Family Portraits

All the family were gathering to celebrate mum and dad’s 40th wedding anniversary, so it seemed like...

Catherine & Dave’s Wedding at The Fleece Countryside Inn

Catherine and Dave’s wedding day was a scorcher. Perfect for the ‘fun at the fair’ theme at the reception. Catherine went to town making literally EVERYTHING. From the personalised champagne glasses in the morning to the bridal party coconuts for the coconut shy (there’s a phrase I’ve never written before!). Everywhere I looked there was an...

Alex & Dave’s Wedding at Gorton Monastery

We were lucky enough to shoot Alex & Dave’s cool wedding last week.  Alex is the giggly, funny one, Dave the laid back, rockstar DJ one.  A fabulous combination.  Gorton Monastery was the perfect venue, and fortunately, the newly repaired alter was unveiled just in time for the ceremony.  Highlights included superhero kids, amazing balloon...
