Heather and Nathan married at Parr Street Church in Kendal, Cumbria followed by a reception at Low Wood Bay Resort, Windermere in July last year. Just after the service we ventured up to Loughrigg Tarn in the Lake District for some bridal portraits with an epic back drop. I love it when my couples are keen to climb fences in their wedding gear!

I spent the morning at Beth’s parents beautiful 17th Century farmhouse in the Lancashire countryside. Beth and her bridesmaids then made their way to Chipping Congregational Church where her fiancé, Phil, was waiting patiently along with a huge congregation – the room was packed full to the brim of family & friends. After a beautiful ceremony Beth, Phil and their bridal party braved the weather and ventured out into the fields for some photographs, Special thanks has to go to some very officiant friends of the bride who were there with 4×4’s, brollies and plastic sheeting to keep the dresses clean(ish). The reception was held at Chipping Village Hall. I’ve been here three times now and each time I rock up, i’m amazed at how different the hall can look. Its a great space to put your mark on.

A week or two ago, I ventured down to Owen House Wedding Barn in the heart of the Cheshire countryside for a Photography Workshop. This rustic barn venue is a personal fav of mine, ever since I photographed Claire & Carl’s Wedding there a few years ago.
The workshop itself was run by the very talented Jonny Draper. It was fabulous to listen, learn and watch Jonny in action, along with meeting lots of like minded photographers. Workshops are a great way to get your geek on, learn new techniques and generally experiment with ideas . . . this one was no exception. I drove home that night buzzing with ideas. Now I’m super excited about my upcoming weddings!
