Wedding & Portrait Photography – Liverpool, Cheshire and Lancashire

This has to be my favourite blog post of the year! Yet again I have the absolute pleasure of re-living all the wonderful memories, moments and total joy from the year just gone. The only hardship of this job is the terrible trial of having to choose a sensible number to share! I have finally managed to whittle it down!

I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank all the incredible couples and families who I have had the absolute honour to get to know and all wonderful moments I have had the privilege to share and capture – what a job I have!

And finally I ended my year with the most special arrival ever… our little boy Finley Robert Williams! He gets the honour of kicking off this years highlights….

Bring on 2017!

Eaves Hall Wedding // Rachael & Matt //

Eaves Hall Wedding Photography

Rachael and Matt’s Eaves Hall wedding really was something a little bit special. After photographing the couple for their engagement shoot  I was sure that the day would be totally fun filled and they did not disappoint! The couple tied the knot in the beautiful rural church of St Huberts, Clitheroe. Not only was the journey to the ceremony across the most stunning countryside but the inside of the church was also truly breathtaking!

The reception then followed at the wonderful Eaves Hall. This is just a perfect setting for wedding photography, plus Rachael and Matt’s meticulous and creative planning made for a fantastic wedding to capture.

Mitton Hall Wedding Photography // Will & Beth //

Mitton Hall Wedding Photography

Mitton Hall is such a stunning venue for a wedding and Will and Beth were just an absolute pleasure to photograph!

I have to start by mentioning Beth’s incredible dress… An absolutely show stopping Jesus Peiro number with the most beautiful crisp clean lines. Beth looked just amazing in it and I did definitely develop a slight photo obsession!!

The 15th century manor house has so many gorgeous period features and provided a really intimate and striking setting for Will and Beth’s fun filled day. The ceremony itself took place in the beautiful conservatory area with heaps of gorgeous natural light and views out to lots of lovely greenery in the grounds of the hall. The whole day was filled with so much warmth and lots of laughter- just perfect! Wishing you guys every happiness for the future!

Here are a few of my favourites below 🙂

 

Belle Epoque Wedding // Dan & Kate //

So excited to be able to share more from Dan and Kate’s gorgeous Belle Epoque wedding. Goodness me were these guys blessed with the most beautiful weather! It was one of the hottest days in August and the skies were the bluest blue all day!

Dan and Kate tied the knot in a beautiful church ceremony before heading over to Belle Epoque for their reception. Check out the amazing floral decorations on the church door! These were just a joy to photograph and provided a gorgeous frame for all the family and group shots.

Belle Epoque in Knutsford, Cheshire was a fantastic setting to carry on the celebrations. I really love all the period features of the building and the outdoor area was just great for soaking up all that sun!

Knutsford itself is a beautiful little town and provided a great setting for our couples portraits. A gorgeous stroll in that summer light and I couldn’t be happier with the results.

A huge thank you to Dan and Kate for choosing me to capture your amazing day- I loved every second!

Styal Lodge Wedding Photography – Jenny & Matt

Styal Lodge Wedding Photography – Jenny & Matt

There was a lot to love about Jenny and Matt’s day from the fun filled bridal preparation, to the stunning church and then the reception at the beautiful Styal Lodge in Cheshire. This is a fantastic venue with a purpose built reception room clad in wood, high ceilings and lots of natural light. Not to mention that it’s set in the grounds of a golf course, so lots of great space for leafy landscape shots . I do love getting outdoors with my couples and wandering for that perfect shot!

Jenny and Matt had planned so many amazing details including a super cool table plan with photos of every guest and gorgeous wooden plinths for their tables centre pieces. Also have to mention that they had genuine tin cans on the back of their wedding car! I have waited so long to photography this classic wedding tradition! Loved it!

It really was the most gorgeous day to photograph and I was thrilled to hear Jenny and Matt were really pleased with the results too. Take a look at my kind words page to see their lovely comments.
