Last month I had the honour of photographing Emma & Ben’s fantastic wedding in sunny Lancashire:-)

I could tell this was going to be a brilliant day as soon as I arrived at Emma & Ben’s house in the morning for photographs of Emma getting ready, everybody was so relaxed and excited about the wedding, all I had to do was point my camera at the smiles!

Emma & Ben got married at the beautiful Fairhaven United Reformed Church in Lytham St. Annes before having their wedding reception at Lytham Hall. As a Manchester wedding photographer, I have covered weddings all over the North West but this wedding was especially exciting for me at it was the first time I had worked at either venue. Lytham Hall is perfect for a wedding venue, it is a grade I listed manor house set in huge grounds which are fantastic for wedding photographs.  The interior of Lytham Hall is perhaps even more impressive as it is beautifully decorated.

A selection of my favourite wedding photographs from Lytham Hall are below.  Please take an extra moment to take a good luck at Emma & Ben’s tea-set wedding cake – easily one of the best wedding cakes I have ever seen, just incredible!

Emma & Ben – thank you very much again for asking me to be a part of your wedding day.  It was a pleasure working with you both and I am really pleased you are so happy with your wedding photographs.  I wish you both a lifetime of happiness together:-)


Last month I had the great privilege of covering Jenny and Richard’s wedding at Manchester Town Hall and The Lowry in Salford Quays, and WOW, what a day it was!:-)

Richard and Jenny were blessed with beautiful weather the whole day and we really made the most of it by taking bride & groom wedding photographs at both Manchester Town Hall and The Lowry.  Everything went perfectly for Jenny and Richard and I couldn’t have been happier for them.  The whole wedding day was filled with laughter and smiles and it was a pleasure to be part of it:-)

Although I have covered weddings at Manchester Town Hall before, this was the first time I had taken photographs at a wedding at The Lowry in Salford Quays and I couldn’t have been more impressed with it – what a fantastic wedding venue!  The Lowry has the luxury of having an amazing, specious interior as well as having lots of outside space around Salford Quays which is perfect for wedding photography.  Manchester Town Hall is very similar in that sense so using both venues for a wedding day works extremely well from a wedding photography point of view.

Jenny & Richard – thank you so much again for asking me to be a part of your wedding day.  I was so pleased that after all your hard work in planning the day, everything went so well for you both.  It was a pleasure working with you both and I’m very pleased you are both so happy with your photographs.  I wish you a very long and happy marriage together!:-)
