I recently had the pleasure of photographing Laura & Matt’s fantastic wedding at Clough Manor in Saddleworth. This was the first wedding I had covered at Clough Manor and I really enjoyed it, the venue has beautiful gardens at the back of the hotel and fantastic countryside views towards the front (which we certainly made the most of!)

Before going full time as a Manchester wedding photographer I used to work with Matt so was really pleased to photograph his wedding. This was such a fun wedding and I could feel the excitement as soon as I started taking photographs at Laura’s parents house in the morning and it continued throughout the whole day.

After Laura & Matt returned from honeymoon they sent me a lovely email to thank me for their photographs. It’s comments like these that make all the hard work so worthwhile:-)

We are just going through the photos now and we think they are amazing. We are both so, so pleased with the quality of your work as are the people we have shown them to. Also, your commitment on the day was just astounding. It was such a long day but all the hard work you put in is clearly visible in the pictures.

Laura & Matt – thank you again for asking me to photograph your wedding, it was a pleasure capturing your wedding day for you. I am so pleased that you are both so happy with your photographs. I wish you both a very long and happy marriage:)

Here are a selection of my favourite photographs from your wedding day:

    Laura Fleming - Neil did a fantastic job photographing our wedding, as you can tell from the pictures they are outstanding. He really is an excellent photographer and I am so happy that we used him for our special day. Thank you so so much Neil. I hope you do Christenings as well as weddings because thats what we will want you for next!!!

A couple of weeks ago I covered another wedding at one of my favourite wedding venues – The Belle Epoque in Knutsford.

Vicky and Jeremy are one of the nicest couples you could ever come across and it was an absolute pleasure to capture their wedding day for them.  The day was filled with smiles and laughter and also a big surprise as Vicky’s sister Emma surprised Vicky by hiring her a super cool camper van to take her to the ceremony!:-)

Earlier this week, after they had viewed all their wedding photographs, Vicky and Jeremy sent me a really nice email to thank me.  As a Manchester wedding photographer, receiving feedback like this makes all the hard work so worthwhile and shows why wedding photography is the best job in the world!

“Thank you so so so so so so so so so much for the photographs – they are absolutely amazing and we are over the moon with them. We knew that you would be brilliant but you have absolutely blown us away!”

Vicky & Jeremy – I wish you both a very long and happy marriage together.  I have really enjoyed working with you both and I am so pleased you are both so happy with your photographs.  Thank you again for asking me to cover your wedding!

Vicky arrived in a camper van – how cool?!:-)

After the wedding ceremony, Vicky & Jeremy went for a short drive around Knutsford..

I am particularly proud of the four photographs below, certainly amongst my favourites from this year:-)
