"I take pictures of people...

they just happen to be people at weddings"

Documentary wedding photography for people who like laughing. A lot.

Wedding photography in Lancashire / Cheshire/ Manchester and beyond

Woohoo! You did it, you’re engaged, CONGRATULATIONS! Once you've drunk your fill of fizz and basked in joy of being newly engaged then get ready...now the planning really begins! Spreadsheets/budgets/guestlists and all that jazz. I know what it’s like, I went through all that last year too. 

The good thing is though, you’re now on the hunt for a photographer. This means you can forget about the 'wedmin' (technical term) for a bit. Grab a brew, sit down together and have a nosy at other people’s weddings (and my photography - but let's be honest, we all love to see how other people have done things)!

It's always good to start at the beginning, so who the heck am I?! You can find out more about what makes me tick over here on my handy about page, but for the short version just carry on reading..

I’m based in Manchester (just a hop, skip and a jump to the Cheshire border), grew up in the 'sunny' seaside town of Blackpool in Lancashire and spend my time traveling all over the UK documenting weddings and meeting some fab people. I used to document the work of a sustainable development charity over in Tanzania and that's where my storytelling photography style really came into its own. When I'm not hanging out at fab weddings photographing people getting married then I can be found exploring the UK with my husband and our pup, Nancy. We're also regulars in our local pub (we're real ale and gin fans)! We recently got married ourselves and I learnt a heck of a lot during the planning process so I've put together a wedding guide full of hints and tips to help you guys out.

I’m a big fan of non-cheesy, fun filled wedding photography. If that’s what you’re after then we’re going to get on! I’m all about the real moments, nothing posed or forced. Just you guys, having the time of your lives with your favourite people. Lets face it, you want to party, not spend all day posing for photos! Want to know a bit more about my style of photography? Head on over and find out all about documentary wedding photography and how I photograph your wedding day.
