Engagement Shoot

It still feels like a bit of an ‘American thing’ to have an engagement shoot to some, but I love them!

Unlike a wedding, we get to choose the weather, and during this shoot the weather was truly epic! May I introduce the amazing Suz and Andy to you! Suz is also a photographer, in fact her and her partner photographed my wedding, nearly 14 years ago! Now it’s her turn and I was completely honoured to be shooting her big day!! I’d not met Andy, so the engagement shoot is a great way for us all to spend some time together, and get use to the way I shoot.

Suz picked out an awesome location for the beginning part of the shoot. A bakery and coffee shop, names Bakers in Bolton. If you’ve not been and your close, it’s a must! According to Suz and Andy, brunch there is great…and I can vouch for the cakes and coffee!!

As we were shooting in the cafe we could see the sun was still out so we made a dash for ‘golden hour’ and we were blessed! We found a lovely hill side (traditionally boggy…well it is England!), Andy pulled the car over and we jumped out! Suz and I know what a gift this light is and we made full use of it for sure!

So here are just a few tasters of what we got up to! I can’t wait to see these two get married in only a couple of weeks, they are literally ‘made for each other’ and I can’t wait to document their moment!!

Alice and Josh get married!!

What an incredible day! Josh and Alice met and feel in love in the wonderful city of Manchester! They planned their big day to take place right at the heart of this fabulous city. The reception was held at the Hilton Hotel in Manchester and the ceremony was held, just up the road, at St. Annes Church.

As you can see from the day, it was filled laughter, joy and love! Alice and Josh run their own music company called Sing Academy and they trained the RNCM  so you can imagine how amazing the music was throughout the day!! One of the most amazing moments was when they joined their evening function band, Funk Brother: Soul Sister and sang the night away! As you can see from the images, they sang their hearts out and the dance floor was the busiest I’ve ever seen it!!

Enjoy the images and thanks to:

Andrea and Mark’s Wedding day

If you need a reminder of sunnier days then look no further! This beautiful sunny day will be forever remembered in the hearts of Andrea, Mark and their friends!

The venue was Redhouse Farm Barn  which is a stunning, bespoke wedding venue, in the West Midlands. Andrea and Mark are an incredible couple and their day was vibrant, fun, full of great emotions and beautiful friendships. I was truly honoured to be apart of their day, so here is a little window into it!

Jason and Katy

What an amazing day! Even the rain couldn’t stop these two incredible people having the time of their lives. These two know what it is to over come hardships, and so a little rain was nothing for them… The festival style wedding was such a great way to celebrate these two being united… complete with camp fires, marshmallow and a sparkler send off, Jason and Katy’s wedding was one incredible day! I hope you enjoy…

Delamere Forest


Family time is so super important. So this weekend my hubbie and our little ladies went to Delamere Forest (run by the Forestry Commission) for the first time and we loved it so much I thought I’d share it with you all!

We’ve never been before but they have so much going on!! Our little ladies are 3 and 7, so we went for the new Stick Man Activity Trail.

It was so brilliant!! If you park (£6 for all day) at the cafe (sat Nav CW8 2JD) you can get the activity packs from the cafe for £3 each. In there you get an activity booklet to do on your way around, with extra sheets for bark rubbings. You also get some brown pipe cleaners to make your very own stick man (see below pictures). You also get a little activity booklet to do at home: so a total bargin!!

It wasn’t really very warm when we went but you didn’t notice it because we just ran and walked around finding all the different bits of activities!! Watch the video to find out about what we got up to!

Our girls totally loved it so at the end is a little video clip of our youngest little lady giving you her review!!


Such a great day out for the kids!!

Beth and Barnes’s Wedding

Wow, what a day!! The stunning wedding of Beth and Barnes took place in Longhoughton, a gorgeous part of the British countryside. The day was perfect, but I’m sure you remember me telling you for their engagement shoot that their wedding venue wasn’t quite built yet!! Well, it was finish in plenty of time, and we were the first wedding there! What a wonderful location it was too, Doxford Barn. As you can see from their day, the wedding was full of intensely beautiful emotions, plenty of giggles and some serious belly laughing!! One of my many favourite moments of the day happened during the beach shots. The Groom, Barney, likes to have a dip in the sea, so naturally the boys went for a swim before the wedding! However, during the photos at the beach after the ceremony a bunch of their mates decided to take the plunge in honour of Barney. The images speak for themselves!!

The food at the wedding was nothing short of EPIC! After an incredible starter, a platter of salmon, pate, salad, mackerel and more each table was issued with a chefs hat! One person from each table had a letter explaining that they were the ‘carver’ for the next course. Wow what a course it was. Whole roast chickens and lambs came to each table… the food was superb!

The first dance photos are also a first for me. The evening reception was a fancy dress theme, and the guests got fully on board!! The sparklers at the end of the night, in fancy dress, summed up the day perfectly: sparkly fun!

Enjoy the images from their wonderful day:



Wedding in the Isle of Wight

This beautiful wedding was shot mid July in the picturesque countryside of the Isle of Wight.

If you’ve never been to the Isle of Wight, can I please just take a minute and tell you why you should go… It is beautiful!! The people are super friendly, and the panoramic views from the coast are breath taking.

I have known Naomi for a few years and she had always said that when she got married she’d love me to be her photographer (honestly, still blushing, what a lovely thing to say!). So when I got a call from her, I was very excited! Naomi is an incredible lady, and she met her man through an internet site! On first meeting she had her phone at the ready to call her best friend, just in case he ‘was a weirdo’! But all was well…he turned out to be a keeper! Rob is from the north of England (Yay as I live in Manchester) and is genuinely so kind and considerate, they are a perfect match!

So you can imagine that I was extra excited, not only that Naomi was getting married, but on such a wonderful island! Naomi’s dress (which is nothing short of stunning, I know you’ll agree) was brought from the illustrious Forget-me-not Designs, vintage lace designs for the modern bride.

The ceremony was at a very civilised time of 3pm at the beautiful rose windowed church, St Mildred’s Church. As the sun shone, Naomi arrived on a horse drawn carriage, a perfect way to take in her surroundings before entering into the church. The candle lit service was full of a real sense of love and emotion, as you can see from the images. Then after a rose petal confetti moment, we were off to the stunning reception venue. Osbourne House is a magnificent English Heritage property. It was firstly owned by Queen Victoria (as her her palatial holiday home) and she is quoted in saying “It is impossible to imagine a prettier spot”. I think I might agree with her! The newly painted wedding suite was so elegant and the staff were beyond helpful. Douglas and his team pulled out all the stops to make it a remarkable and memorable reception.

So without further ado, here are a few images from this lovely summer wedding…

Love is to the heart what the summer is to the farmer’s year — it brings to harvest all the loveliest flowers of the soul.



I am so excited about the new packing that I am using this year. Look at the finish on it! Beautiful! I’m so excited for  Rob and Naomi to receive theirs (and they will have done by the time this goes live #etiquette). So here is their finished packaging…
