We all lived in the same village. My daughter went to school with Richard's brother. Richard's Mum has the village hair dressers. Richard heads up the village drama group and the annual panto (in which I like to dress up as a man or a villain, or both), his lovely family and Robyn are involved in the Panto too. Richard and Robyn are both talented musicians and perform locally. Robyn sews the most beautiful things, including pretty coats for my dog! So yes, we know each other pretty well and I was absolutely delighted when they asked me to be their wedding photographer! For Richard and Robyn's Pre Wedding session I wanted to keep it local. We agreed on the iconic Viaduct as the perfect backdrop! We had rain, wind, mud and some sunshine too, it was fun.....

Richard and Robyn get married in July at The Chevin Country Park Hotel, there is going to be a music festival vibe with lots of their friends taking part. I can't wait to see everyone!!!!

Anita Dans Burlesque and her Penny Arcade Photo Session I mean, obviously I jumped at the opportunity to shoot this!

Anita Dans is a local burlesque performer who was supported in her totally bonkers idea by Bradford 2025 and Unlimited who commission extraordinary work from disabled artists. 

We used the Penny Arcade within Woodbank Garden Centre in Harden as our absolutely perfect location! We had an hour to capture this and I think we nailed it.

Anita debuts this costume on Saturday 13th April at The Star Spangled Caberet in Sheffield and you can also catch her at Salt & Shake in Saltaire in May (I'll see you there)!

Anita would like to thank:

Heidi McEvoy-Swift for the costume

Trixie Blue for being kind and supportive

Chris & Sam's Pre Wedding session in Saltaire 100 days and counting ......

unit this lovely couple get married at Victoria Hall.

Chris & Sam loved the idea of a pre wedding session, they both felt it would be useful as, like me, they are not fans of having their photo taken.

We grabbed this opportunity for a pleasant walk around Saltaire village and near by Roberts park. The weather was a little overcast but Sam's red coat and matching lippy were a welcome pop of colour on this Spring day!  Chris & Sam were up for all my suggestions, even slow dancing on the bandstand and braving the mud for some pics by the colourful grafitti! Well before the end of the session they had both totally relaxed into it!

Jacob & Olivia's Wedding at Stirk House Jacob & Olivia are truly two of the lovliest people you will ever meet. They deserved the most amazing wedding day and they got it! Married at Stirk House on December 27th, it was a wonderful sparkly wedding full of love and laughter. Surrounded by family and friends, Jacob & Olivia had the wedding of their dreams, complete with snow confetti. Did it matter that it rained all day and all night? No, of course not, this lovely couple could not have been happier. Olivia's dress was stunning, nothing like I have ever seen before....she wore her cowboy boots with it later in the evening! I do love a bride who owns her style on her wedding day! Jacob's sister made the elegant wedding cake and his brother brought his band for the evening entertainment.

Jacob & Olivia's Pre Wedding Session The weather God's smiled upon us today and there was a brief break in the relentless rain that allowed us to make the most of the stunning Autumnal colours in Lister Park. We pretty much had the park to ourselves, so we enjoyed the beautiful grounds. We also had a look around Cartwright Hall and the Hockney Gallery. Olivia and Jacob are having a super sparkly Christmas wedding at Stirk House, I cant wait!!

David & Karen's Wedding Day I made this blog for David and Karen so they could share their wedding day images with their closest family and friends. David is a private person and initially he wanted to keep his wedding ceremony private too. Once David had seen the pictures he let me know he was happy for me to share them.  David and Karen's intimate wedding ceremony was held with special permission in their Bolton Abbey home. They were surrounded and supported by their family; Briar Cottage was literally bursting at the seams!

I'm so grateful that couples trust me to capture their wedding day and I will never take that for granted.

Adam & Sarah's Gorgeous Autumnal Wedding in Haworth It's no secret that I love Haworth, so I'm always really happy when I get to capture a wedding there. Adam and Sarah got married at Haworth church and their reception was at the Old School Rooms, just across the cobbles. Adam and Sarah met at school but it was several years later before the couple were reunited and a romance blossomed. Adam proposed to Sarah while he was dressed as Henry VIII and she was dressed as Anne Boleyn! Their wedding ceremony was carried out by the new Rector, Rev. Oli, who made everyone feel very welcome. After the ceremony we paused for photos on the church steps and then Adam and Sarah took off for a quick spin in a stunning white Thunderbird. The rain showers stopped as they drove off, so the convertible top was taken advantage of.  Once back in the pretty village, we took some time for their Bride and Groom pictures. Adam and Sarah were then welcomed by their guests into the Old School Rooms, I dont think that room has ever looked more beautiful! Sarah had chosen a theme and a colour scheme that complimented the historic rooms perfectly. Their wedding cake had a secret, little nod to their beloved dog, Frankie....!

It belongs to Claire and Ryan who live next door in the converted barn. If you are looking for luxury and tranquility, look no further. Situated down a private lane is this beautiful farm house, surrounded by fields with views to die for. It sleeps 6 in 3 gorgeous bedrooms. You'll find a welcome pack on arrival, filled with delicious local treats, home made cake and fresh eggs from their own hens! The very pretty kitchen has all the mod cons you could wish for. There is a super cozy sitting room with wood burning stove, ideal for those winter nights! Outside you will find a huge garden with a hammock, trampoline and a wonderful hot tub too! If you manage to drag yourself away from Holme House during your stay, there are lots of places to visit nearby......Settle, the Forest of Bowland, Yorkshire Dales and Lake District, the Yorkshire three peaks, Lancaster, Leeds, York Skipton, Clitheroe and Kirkby Lonsdale. 

Personally I would stay in the hot tub and eat cake, but that's just me .....

Sorry, no dogs.

Chris & Hollie A Country House Wedding in Somerset The one with..... A Magnificent Manor A BIG sword and a lovely family connection.......

I always feel very honored to be trusted to capture a wedding, but to be chosen THREE times by the same family is an accolade indeed!! This lovely family first put their trust in me way back in 2016 when I captured eldest daughter, Bonnie's, wedding. A couple of years later it was middle son, Michael's, turn and now it's youngest son, Chris's, turn to get wed. For this one I travelled all the way to Somerset and it was so worth it. Chris & Hollie had exclusive use of Crowcombe Court, a very special place in the Quantock Hills.

Chris & Hollie's Pre Wed at Bolton Abbey North Yorkshire What an absolutely wonderful young couple these two are! It was a total joy to capture the love Chris and Hollie so obviously have for one another. The Yorkshire Mizzle that descended on Bolton Abbey ruins did not dampen their spirits at all. It could have been classed as "grim up North" today but Chris and Hollie brought their inner sunshine!!! Really looking forward to their wedding soon, although it will be the end of an era photographically for me when it comes for documenting weddings for this lovely family .......

Phil and Leah's wedding at Victoria Hall Saltaire My last wedding of 2022 and what a way to end it! This wedding was just wonderful and it was so good to be back at Victoria Hall in Saltaire.

Leah had not one but two Heirloom gowns. The first dress was Phil's Grandmothers and the second was the dress her own mother got married in!  The couple actually had two ceremonies as well; the first was a Handfasting ceremony performed by Leah's Auntie and then later on they had their legal ceremony.

Leah was giving me vintage Hollywood Starlet vibes all day, she looked incredible! Her handsome Groom wore a suit hand-tailored from a bolt of fabric belonging to his Grandfather!

The couple had turned one of the rooms at Victoria Hall into a retro gaming room, with Pac Man, Pong and Street Fighter. At the Pie and Peas Wedding Breakfast, Phil & Leah surprised their guests by emerging through the floor of the stage with the Wurlitzer Organ....Genius!!!

Yes it pretty much rained all day but when it stopped later in the evening, the newly weds and I took to the darkened streets of this World Heritage village to capture their Bride and Groom portraits. Wet cobbles and moody street lighting made for some wonderful atmospheric captures, with more than a nod to the romance of old-school film photography. Phil's amazing Grooms Man, also let us use his car headlights to try something a bit different ......thank you for stepping out of your comfort zone, bringing your own ideas and totally embracing this opportunity!!

Elliott & Emma's Hornington Manor Wedding The HOT one! 

HOT couple.... HOT venue.... HOT weather .....BIG LOVE....!

I loved everything about this wedding and it was an absolute pleasure to be involved. I initially met Emma when I captured Ryan and Nicola's wedding at Sandburn Hall some four years ago, Emma told me then that when she got married she was booking me to capture her big day! I'll never take that faith in me for granted, thank you.

Elliott and Emma had exclusive use of the very special venue that is Hornington Manor. Hornington Manor is a picture perfect venue near York, it oozes "relaxed-class" and the vibe is very chilled. Elliott and Emma had their ceremony in the courtyard using the rustic lychgate. After the vows we used the grounds for pictures, then it was into the barn for food, drink, speeches and dancing. The day just flowed so perfectly and everyone was so lovely, I didn't want to leave!

It was an absolute joy to work with these amazing suppliers:

Venue: Hornington Manor

Hair and Make up: Bow and Blush

Flowers: Wild Floral Couture

Videography: Yorkshire Wedding Videos

Singer & Band
