Do we fit?

Elegant. Fun. Natural. Relaxed. Attention to detail. That was your vision. How do I meet that?

I love the challenge of naturally capturing the unique spirit of your wedding day, whether solemn, fun or full of romance. Honest energy, riotous fun, happy tears, shared laughter, and artistic beauty are my tools.

Friend & family groups are necessary, but an unobtrusive approach to sophisticated reportage wedding photography, plus elegant & natural photographs of yourselves, are more important.

I chat and laugh along with your guests so they don’t treat me as the uncomfortable guy in the corner; this allows me to produce my real, reportage results at every wedding.

I don’t brand myself as a “vintage” or “reportage” or “documentary” or “traditional” or “artistic” photographer – I am just “me” and include the best elements of all styles in my work. My 12 years in photography (beginning in the fashion industry) have resulted in winning National Photographer of the Year & “Queensberry Bragging Rights” awards.

If you think we might fit, please do get in touch to chat through some of the details of your day and how I might help.

Where are my weddings?

I am based close to Warrington, so I cover many weddings in Cheshire, Lancashire or based around the North West of England and in the surrounding counties. I travel throughout the UK regularly and internationally with destination weddings too.

Some regular local towns include Warrington, Liverpool, Altrincham, Bolton, Blackburn, Preston, Leeds, Tarporley, Chester and Stoke. I’ve covered Derbyshire many times too.

Manchester weddings

Having lived close to Manchester my whole life, I am very at home in and around Lancashire.

I’ve photographed many brides & grooms in Manchester, around Castlefields and the centre, and worked at popular venues like the Lowry, Manchester Town Hall, Great John Street and The Midland.

I love the opportunities that Manchester provides, such as architectural arches, beautiful brickwork and aspiring alleyways.

Cheshire weddings

Cheshire is my home and I love the unique mix of rolling hills and quirky coffee shops.

The views available to the counties top venues, such as Rookery Hall, Mottram Hall and Arley Hall are enviable; and then there are the unique one offs like Peckforton Castle which people travel far and wide for.

Throughout the area, this green county and it’s many stunning Halls can be used to great effect for incredibly artistic photography.

Popular venues and locations

I’ve worked as far away as Wales and Scotland and abroad in SicilyItaly and even photographed a Santoini Wedding. I truly love to travel and the subtle differences between weddings is fascinating for me.

I’ve photographed at some of the UK most stunning luxury venues too, such as the incredibly lavish Claridges in Mayfair, prestigious Peckforton Castle, gothic Allerton Castle, iconic Braxted Park, intimate Inglewood Manor, regal Knowsley Hall, memorable Chatsworth House, timeless Thornton Manor, relaxed Ashes farm and unique Styal Lodge.

When offered the opportunity, I will take full advantage of stunning gardens at Kew GardensArley Hall and Iscoyd Park.

I’m equally at home with the extraordinary architecture in the urban  Great John Street Hotel & Manchester Town Hall and around cities like Manchester.

If you’re looking for a winter wedding photography, I’m very experienced at working with the light on a shorter day and didn’t mind getting my feet caked in snow at Eaves Hall! I also love the unique opportunities of same sex weddings, a Steampunk wedding, a Boho styled wedding or a Papakata tent wedding.
