THE DREAM WAS REAL

Florence & Asif – Great John Street Hotel, Manchester

Just a beautiful couple from London who decided to get married back home in the great city of Manchester. An amazing venue and possibly some of the best speeches I’ve ever heard :). The brief was simple: very few posed, loads of natural shots.

Rachel & James – Charnock Farm, Leyland

I’d known this gorgeous couple for a few years, so they both felt relaxed around the camera. The church was beautiful and the venue was stunning. They even organised older men to get dressed in grass skirts and dance around the couple!

Arita & Wal, Styal Lodge, Cheshire

We hit it off the moment we met – this couple were fun, friendly and really kind. Had a fantastic day shooting from the bridal-prep until late at night. Now Arita and Wal are mum and dad :) :)

Kirsty & Joe, Thornton Manor, Liverpool

Kirsty and Joe are the kindest and most gentle of couples but they gave me a real challenge – a Hindu wedding followed by a traditional British civil ceremony with hundreds of guests!

Bev & Marcus, Heaton Moor Golf Club, Manchester

Bev & Marcus were madly in love, and it showed throughout the day. A jam-packed wedding. Church, followed by some formal shots, followed by a meal at the golf club, followed by more formal shots, followed by some romantic shots, followed by the party…. you hopefully get the picture!

Laura & Rocky, Cheadle Village Hotel, Stockport

Laura and Rocky had already got married in Greece and had asked me to capture the reception here in England. The party was wild and the first dance - well, I think they practised. ;)

Suzanne & Adam, Lancaster

Such a sweet couple! I met them a few months before and took some engagement shots at Ribby Hall, so we knew each other quite well. It was a brilliant day that even took us up to the famous Winter Hill for some intimate portraits. Good job the weather was okay!

Abby & Geoff, Avenham Park Pavillion, Preston

A fantastic couple and a unique venue! It rained, it poured, but it didn’t dampen their spirits – they loved every moment of the day – and the rain did stop just in time for some romantic shots.

Phoebe & Peter, Wythenshawe, Manchester

Phoebe and Peter met through their church, and their faith was evidently as important to them as each other was. I love an unconventional wedding, full of smiling guests from all different backgrounds and countries. Brazil, the Philippines, Italy, you name it…
Oh, and there was one very cheeky flower girl…

Rachel & Simon, Loughborough

An old friend and his beautiful (and incredibly smart fiancee – speaks 4 languages, erhm). My first Cèilidh wedding dancing – hoping not my last. Simon said to me ‘let’s go take some pictures on that kids climbing frame’… the rest is history.
