where pictures are full of emotions and style....
movement and real life...
where stolen looks matter more than cheesy smiles...
where you can be wild and elegant at the same time...
strong and emotional...
but above all
you must be genuinly and utterly in love!
Award winning wedding photographer based in the heart of Cheshire, UK and covering the whole of North West, including Manchester weddings, Liverpool weddings and Chester weddings.
I had the pleasure to capture wedding celebrations in the imposing manor house wedding venues as well as festival weddings set in tipis and marquees in the Great British and Welsh countryside.
It's really easy to travel from Chester to weddings in Shropshire as well as to the Lakes in Cumbria and to the tip of North Wales into Anglesey. No extra charges for travel apply.
I have a lot of experience working with international clients from around the world for my portrait work as well as weddings. I have photographed weddings in the most romantic and picturesque locations.
This past year my destination weddings took me to Mediterranean coastline of Italy, hills and valleys of Tuscany, French chateaux and vineyards as well as a beach wedding in Antibes and most recently a wedding in Paris.
I am lucky to be based in France for some part of the year (mostly in the summer months) and I have a dedicated website for my destination weddings, which can be viewed HERE.
Weddings are such busy, emotional, monumental events in people's lives. Whether you choose to share it with 200 of your friends or embark on an elopement - the central point for your day is the fact that you love each other.
I believe my main reason for being a part of your day is to document your love, the emotions, the looks, the dance moves. The relationships on the background of your chosen setting.
As a skilled observer, I will be in the right place at the right time and use my best friend - the natural light to capture the magic of your day not forgetting to take some stunning wedding portraits of the two of you!
When I was looking for my wedding photographer, I wasn't particulalry interested in how they like their coffee and if they are reading Harry Potter or Hunger Games books. Incidentally, at the time I was not familiar with the catchy industry words which they used to described their style - fine art, contemporary, documentary, reportage... if they would say "impressionism" or "cubism" it would make more sence to me! However, can you imagine a wedding in a cubism style?! Ha!
I had to LOVE their pictures!
Can you imagine yourself in photographs which show your day as it happened, unposed and uniterrupted by your photographer? Can you see yourself looking your absolute best, but not being told where to stand and which way to look? How would you like to have emotions of your day come back to you in each and every photograph?
I photograph each wedding as it unfolds. Don't get me wrong, I don't just snap away hoping for the best. I know what's your plan, I know what's important to you, we've discussed which guests are particularly close to your heart and who have flown from far away lands. I'm fully aware of the time when your caterers want you in place, so the food will be served at it's best. All this and more has been discussed before the wedding day and now you are here to enjoy every minute of it and I am here to capture it for forever for you.
I am being perfectly honest, when I say that your wedding day is just as important for me as it is for you. But you can keep the ring and all that comes with it!!

It's only when you are part of the wedding world, you truly realise how totally unique each wedding is.
Bride and groom's personalities are just a start...
Family relationships, multicultural connections and even readings for weddings - all going to influence the kind of day you will have. Furthermore, your choice of a wedding venue... whether it is a beach wedding or a castle wedding in the hues of a Cheshire red sandstone...all these details are going to make your celebration like no other.
Can all of these weddings be captured in one photography style? I'd say each one needs to be captured differently.
I'm keen to find out about you and wedding plans, so I know exactly what you want and what your dreams are. And then, once we trust each other, you can go and enjoy your day and I can capture the magic of it for you.
