Eggy & Kay's Pre Wed on the Moors above Norland in Halifax What a glorious day we had! The heather on the moors was spectacular. Eggy and Kay brought the very handsome Rudi along (if in doubt, bring your dog), who did attempt to steal the show just a little bit.......

I'm very much looking forward to being back at The Manor House in Lindley for their wedding next year.

Andy and Amy live in India with their beautiful little boy Albie. Their wedding celebrations have been rescheduled several times due to Covid but on 4th July 2021 the dream wedding was finally able to proceed at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire. Amy is now 20 weeks pregnant with their second child, so the wedding dress she bought 2 years ago needed a little tweak. Peckforton Castle is amazing and I have never seen a ceremony room look more beautiful!

Heath & Amanda's nearly wedding Heath and Amanda have rescheduled their wedding more times than we care to talk about at this point. So when the Coronacoaster refuses to let you get off to have the wedding you planned, you improvise......

Wedding number one was at the Registry Office. This is "Wedding" number two; a fun family affair in the woods. Wedding number 3 is going to be a doozy (watch this space)!

Steve and Victoria's Pre Wed at Skipton Castle I've known Victoria for a fair few years now, but it was my first time meeting her fiance, Steve. Steve and Victoria should have been married last year but unfortunately we were all on the Coronacoaster so their wedding had to be postponed. Today was a lovely opportunity to catch up at the venue they will finally tie the knot at in just 4 weeks time! I can't wait!!

Charlotte's Charity Head Shave for The Little Princess Trust Cancer sucks!

Charlotte battled malignant Melanoma 10 years ago and now she's facing the fight again. Her cancer is genetic, there is no cure but she has options to help her beat it again. Charlotte decided to donate her hair to the Little Princess Trust who make wigs for children fighting cancer. My own daughter was gifted a wig from The Little Princess Trust when she was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2005. Charlotte is strong and she has wonderful people to support her. Charlotte's hair will grown back in time and I'm looking forward to doing another photo session for her to celebrate that!

The head shave took place in accordance with Covid regulations, which was exceptionally difficult for all involved as at times like this all you want to do is hug your loved ones...

(Charlotte did have to remove her mask towards the end of the shave as she found it claustrophobic)

Charlotte's Fund Raising Page is here

The Little Princess Trust

Here's to everyone fighting cancer, sending you so much love and positivity.

One Paw At A Time Dog Rescue Charity Auction Photo Session in Haworth I love dogs, all dogs, but my most favourite dog of all is a Rescue! Benji is a rescue from Romania (just like my Mitzi). Benji was saved by a wonderful little charity called One Paw At A Time, they help dogs from the UK and Romania and more recently from the meat trade in China. To help them raise much needed funds, I offered a photo session for their raffle and Julie, Benji's Mum, was the winning bidder! Julie and Peter decided to combine the photo session with a little holiday here in Bronte Country!  We've all been looking forward to this for a while now and the weather could not have been more perfect for us. We met high on the moors above Haworth, the views up here are amazing. Benji rocked his photo session, Julie and Peter did good too!! It was my absolute pleasure to meet you all. Thank you so much for being such wonderful, kind, caring people ... who were certainly up for a laugh ......

If you could find it in your heart to make a donation, no matter how small, it would be very gratefully received, thank you xXx

The Wedding of Stuart and Gemma at Chevin Country Park Hotel, Otley Gemma got ready on the morning of the wedding in one of the swanky new lodges at the Chevin Country Park Hotel. They are lovely and cozy and come complete with hot tub (Ellie could hardly wait to be allowed in the next day)! It was great to work with Becca from Beauty with Becca again; Gemma looked flawless and every inch the elegant bride. Stuart was kept busy on the morning of the wedding adding the finishing touches to the room and it looked amazing! Stuart is a stickler for detail; check out the fancy way he knotted his tie!! Nisha helped me capture the intimate ceremony, she used the balcony vantage point (even tho she is afraid of heights) to its full potential. After the ceremony there was a game of "Corn Hole" outside. Stuart saw this traditional game played at a wedding in the USA, so he decided to make one for his own wedding and it went down a treat! Stuart and Gemma braved the wind for a few portrait shots at the Chevin Country Park before heading back to the hotel for the wedding breakfast and speeches. Afterwards we were able to capture a few more shots of the bride and groom in the less windy and more secluded areas around the hotel. Stuart's Best Men were up for a laugh when it was there turn for photos!

The Wedding of Rich and Georgie at The Manor House Lindley Did it rain on the day Rich and Georgie got married? If it did no one noticed, we were too busy swooning all over this incredibly gorgeous wedding!!!!!

On the morning of the wedding, Georgie was understandably nervous. You would be surprised how many brides ask me if feeling nervous is normal; it is! Georgie is one of four sisters and the final one to get married, this made the day even more emotionally charged, especially for Dad who was giving away the last of his daughters.

Georgie and her bridal party got ready at the Manor House, the decor in this place is amazing and everywhere you turn there is a photo opportunity waiting to happen. I made the most of the natural light to capture this group of beautiful women preparing for the day ahead. Danny my second Photographer on the day spent his time documenting the equally dapper groom and groomsmen prior to the ceremony. Danny used the Coach House as his backdrop for these shots. The beautiful wedding ceremony took place in the most awesome room within the Coach House. Rich and Georgie went for a "less is more" approach to the venue styling to make the most of the surrounds. Very classy! As the ceremony came to a close it was wonderful to see Georgie forgetting to be nervous and really starting to enjoy herself.... punching the air with her bouquet as she walked back up the aisle with her new husband was a bit of a clue to how much fun the rest of the day was going to be!

After mingling with guests Danny and I took the new Mr & Mrs Crawshaw for some Bride and Groom portraits in the Manor House. This ridiculously good looking couple made the next bit be very easy for us.

Everyone rocked the speeches, there were tears, laughter and so much love. After the cake cut came the dancing and boy does Georgie love to dance (she can also sing really well too)!

Myself and Danny were delighted to be involved in Rich and Gerorgie's wedding day and it was our first time capturing a wedding at the fabulous Manor House in Lindley, it really is everything you would want from a wedding venue and so much more!

Thank you so much for choosing us xXx

The Wedding of Nick & Gemma at The Fleece Countryside Inn There's really nothing more romantic than childhood sweethearts getting married. Nick & Gemma met at school and even though they didn't admit it to one another straight away, their friends knew it was meant to be.  The fact that all those school friends were there to celebrate with them made it extra special. There was a nail-biting wait on the morning of the wedding for Nick's sister to arrive, she lives in Chigaco and had missed the flight the day before! Gemma was walked down the aisle by her best friend and Maid of Honor, Becky and it was Becky's Dad who drove them to the venue in his fabulous Roller! The ceremony was beautiful and Gemma literally smiled the whole way through. Actually Gemma smiled all day!! At the wedding breakfast each table was named after a spirit and a full bottle of each drink graced the table; this was going to be a really good do!! By the end of the day everyone was up dancing, some more enthusiastically than others; the results being rather ......cheeky!

Thank you everyone for being so warm, friendly and fun! Mya xXx

McSharry Family Session in Oakworth My lovely bride from a few years ago, Sara, gifted this session to her sister and brother in law for their wedding anniversary. Such a fab idea!

We met at Oakworth Park on a beautiful summer day. Eden, Hugh and Etta were absolutely adorable and happily joined in my games of running and climbing and finding things in the woods. Ruth said she would be happy to have a family picture where everyone was looking the same way; I think I achieved that and hopefully a little bit more too ...... :)

Capturing the essence of the family is important to me along with ensuring everyone feels happy, relaxed and has lots of fun.

Thank you Jarrod, Ruth, Eden, Hugh and Etta for being so fantastic!!

Paul and Charlie's Pre Wed at Cliffe Castle It was so lovely to catch up with Paul and Charlie again for their pre wedding photos. We met at Cliffe Castle on a sweltering day so the fountains and trees offered welcome relief from the heat and made for some pretty pictures too. Paul confessed he's not often one for PDA's, but after seeing him and Charlie together today you could have fooled me! After the photos Paul and Charlie went home to drink gin in the sunshine, what a cracking way to spend your day off!

Andrew and Emma's Wedding Day I've been really looking forward to this wedding as I've know Andrew and Emma personally for some time. Emma and I used to run at the same club and Andrew and I worked together many moons ago. There were lots of my ex colleagues at the wedding so it was wonderful to see so many familiar faces. During the day there were moments of bitter-sweet, some tears but also lots of laughs and the love that Andrew and Emma share for one another was obvious to all (their first dance had me blubbing)!  Andrew and Emma wanted to keep everything local and used local suppliers. The ceremony was in the church in the village where Emma grew up. After the ceremony there was just time for a swift one at the pub across the cobbles, then it was onto the Golf Club in Harden for their reception.

Mike and Sam's Pre Wed on the Moors above Haworth Despite being drugged up to the eyeballs on anti histamine due to terrible hay fever, Mike still managed to "enjoy" the photo shoot (does anyone really enjoy having a camera in their face)? Mike and Sam are a lovely, fun couple who were up for everything I suggested. I guess it's not my job to bring the crazy, but if its in there then I'll bring it out. Mike and Sam were more than happy to scramble up the side of a cliff face and then re enact the iconic scene from Titanic, but when Mike gave Sam a playful shove at the cliff edge he really did have the nut punch coming!! Thanks for being up for a laugh guys, it was fun!!

Let them stare A Curve Model Photo Shoot in Ilkley How we think about ourselves and the message we send to other women (and our children) have to be based on reality, it's not practical or possible for every woman to look like a Victoria Secret's model. We need to remind ourselves that beauty should not be defined by what we see in magazines. The media's definition of beauty is extremely narrow, but women come in all shapes and sizes, short, tall, dark skin, fair skin, shy, outgoing and everything in between. As grown ass women why would we let the media influence our self esteem? We need to find a way to silence the evil bitch in our head that tells us we are not enough and embrace our uniqueness. We don't have to look in the mirror every morning and think "wow, I look amazing", instead we could ask "what do I contribute to this World" ?, your worth is not measured by your appearance.

Rachel Peru is a signed "Curve" Model who embraces Body Confidence. She's recently worked with Davina McCall, was the face of the JD Williams Christmas TV campaign, worked with Ashley Graham in the Bahamas and been on ITV's Loose Women's (I had a hand in this one too). On Monday, she was plunged into the freezing waters of the River Wharf in Ilkley and prior to this I had her stand in a shop window in a bikini!! Oh and the whole thing was filmed too this space!
