Nicola & Antony: A Family-Filled Emotional DIY Sale Town Hall Wedding

Nicola & Antony: A Family-Filled Emotional DIY Sale Town Hall Wedding

When Tony and Nicola first got in touch with me about their Sale Town Hall and Belmore Hotel wedding in the center of Sale just 4 weeks before the big day, I was so excited – they were planning the most fun and laid back wedding with a vintage double-decker bus transporting their guests between ceremony and venue, a local busker playing a mix of Disney hits and soft acoustic tunes and even a STUNNING flower photo wall created by a family member

The Story So Far: 2018 in Pre-Wedding Shoots

The Story So Far: 2018 in Pre-Wedding Shoots

So I'm getting super into theis year's pre-wedding shoots: meeting in stunning new locations, hiking or walking and spending time with couples who are just so damn excited about their plans...pre-wedding shoots are about so much more than pretty pictures though, they're about connecting and getting to know each other, about working out your chemistry and reassuring you that I'm not eager to make you look like anything or anyone but YOU.

Elizabeth & Chris: A Rivington Pre-Wedding Shoot

Elizabeth & Chris: A Rivington Pre-Wedding Shoot

When we met up for their Rivington pre-wedding shoot a few weeks ago, I was so struck by this tenderness they have for each other.  More than anything, I understood they are best friends and marriage is literally just a natural extension of that: a commitment of hearts and souls and at times I almost felt I was intruding.  And though I knew we'd have an awesome time working together on their wedding (beginning this Friday with their Liverpool Town Hall civil ceremony, followed by Saturday's Spring Cottage garden party extravaganza!) - I wasn't prepared to fall a bit in love with them and spend a languid 2 hours walking the sun-drenched trails of the gorgeous scenery that will provide the setting for Saturday's festivities.

Suzanne and Matthew got married last September at the spectacular Manchester Town Hall, which is an iconic Manchester city centre wedding venue just a few months before this iconic building shuts for weddings for the next 6 years whilst it undergoes a dramatic refurbishment and renovation.  It was one of the most fun weddings I’ve shot and even the rain didn’t dampen the day!

Vicky & Mark - and their gorgeous kids - and a Denzell Gardens Pre-Wedding Session

Vicky & Mark - and their gorgeous kids - and a Denzell Gardens Pre-Wedding Session

Vicky and Mark have been together 18 years (!!!) and have two STUNNING children, Ebony & Austin who tagged along for the shoot.  Whilst a pre-wedding shoot is generally just to get comfortable with the couples portraits, I loved having these two goofballs around.  They were hilarious and the dynamic of the day was super relaxed, feeling more like a family day out than a photo shoot.  These kids are STARS and their energy is completely infectious.

Naomi & Jamie: A Raucous and Glam House Party of an Ashfield House Wedding

Naomi & Jamie: A Raucous and Glam House Party of an Ashfield House Wedding

Naomi and Jamie got married last autumn in the awesome Ashfield House, which is a quirky house in Standish. They had their ceremony at the same venue as the reception, which was great, because having everything in one venue meant more time for drinks. They chose Ashfield House because they could have the place for the whole weekend and they just fell in love with it.  It was a massive family wedding, which felt so personal and authentic to them as a couple.
