Nikki and Mike’s wedding at Inglewood Manor in Cheshire was packed full of fun and laughter and beautiful smiles. Smiles that were contagious to say the least. Mike couldn’t help but smile when he saw Nikki come down the aisle and who can blame him. She looked stunning in her dress and that striking red lipstick. Nikki must have felt pleased as punch too as she saw her handsome groom …

When I arrived at White Chimnies and saw Elly in her dress she looked incredible and when she told me that it was from ASOS I was stunned. It suited her perfectly and I couldn’t wait to photograph her in it. Then I saw her sister/bridesmaid in her floral dress and got excited all over again. Again this was another peach from ASOS. Elly’s bouquet was grown by her Mum …

Naomi and Lewis met when they were studying together at University in Buxton. For their engagement shoot they decided to take a trip down memory lane and go back to the spring town. It rained, heavily, but that didn’t stop us having a lot of fun hiding from the showers and getting some lovely moments of the obvious connection that Naomi and Lewis have. Whatever the weather, the people always …

I first met Jess & Rob when Jess was a bridesmaid at Aileen and Ian’s wedding which I photographed as a Norfolk wedding photographer in August 2012. When they also asked me to be their photographer I was absolutely delighted and so off I went to Norfolk again for their wedding in September. Aileen was one of Jess’ bridesmaids this time around and it was great seeing them play out …

They had a yummy ice cream bike and a fabulous photo booth at their wedding to keep guests entertained. Lower Slaughter and it’s …

Alison and Tony fancied some fun in the sun for their engagement shoot. As they live in Lancaster we thought Southport beach would be perfect for them. It was a beautiful day and really warm, so warm in fact that Tony’s ice cream pretty much melted before he had time to eat it. Seeing the smiles on their faces in these pictures made me so happy when I was editing …

Julie and Mark were due to get married in Cheshire between Christmas and New Year. It was something of a surprise then when Julie emailed me out of the blue one day to sound me out about the possibility of them getting married on a beach in Scotland at the end of October. After my initial reaction of,”Have you got a big coat?” I was only too happy to …

I’m so glad Kate and Chris got in touch after seeing some pictures I’d taken of the Cotswolds whilst on a little holiday last year. They’re getting married in Lower Slaughter next year which is the most beautiful village you’ll see. We went there for this engagement photography session and also to its sister village, Upper Slaughter, which is equally as pretty. Roll on August 4th 2013
