Beth & Phil | Chipping, England.

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.

Photography Workshop, Owen House Barn.

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!

A rainy Pre Wedding Shoot, Milnthorpe.

I have been busy meeting lots of my 2016 couples for mini pre wedding shoots recently. I wanted to share this particular one with you. . . .

Rachel & Thomas met me at the Deer Park near Milnthorpe a few weeks back. We knew the weather looked pretty miserable (actually this was one of the wettest pre wedding shoots I’ve done in a while!). But Rachel & Thomas didn’t mind, so we grabbed our wellies and went for a wander. These guys were so much fun, this shoot reminded me that whatever the weather, it is the people that make the photographs!

Amy and Bump – Maternity Shoot

Amy contacted me a few weeks ago to see if we could do a couple of ‘bump’ photographs before the imminent arrival of their baby girl. We headed to Ruskin’s View, Kirkby Lonsdale, the same place where I shot their Wedding photographs two years before. It was heavy rain on the day that we arrange this but I’m so glad we didn’t postpone as baby Tessa arrived just hours after this shoot! Continue reading
