We had a lovely day yesterday (despite the weather) with Natalie and Joe for the wedding at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in Aintree and The Park. We didn’t spend much time outdoors due to the near constant rain, but the wedding had such a lovely relaxed atmosphere so we were able to get plenty of candid shots to capture the day.

One of the nice things about photographing weddings in Cheshire is the exciting new venues that keep appearing. It’s one of the best places in England to get married (in our opinion), largely thanks to a huge choice of amazing locations. Owen House Wedding Barn is one of the newest options, and is similar in some ways to Sandhole Oak Barn and Heaton House Farm. Like the other two, it’s a working farm, extended to create a bespoke, unique and exclusive family run wedding venue. Read More

It’s that time of year again, we’re getting sick of cold turkey sandwiches and there’s still a big pile of mince pies to get through (not exactly a chore). So I thought I’d go back over the last 12 months and put together a little film. I’ve used some of the best images from each of the weddings we’ve photographed.
Some of the highlights include our first wedding at Owen House Wedding Barn in Cheshire, Hannah and Mark’s big day in mid March, where we had blizzard conditions. I really loved that venue and it was great to be back there with Sarah for Holly and Patrick’s wedding in August.
Another stunning new venue was Upper House Hayfield in the Peak District. I filmed Kerri and Rob’s wedding there in June, and was back there in August for Tanya and Patrick’s wedding photography. In early July we jetted off to the west coast of Ireland for Karen and Alan’s destination wedding. What an amazing place, somewhere to return to for sure!
So here’s the film, hope you like it and everyone has a fantastic 2019,

Inglewood Manor is one of the most popular and prestigious venues on the Wirral. It’s always been one of our favourite places to photograph weddings, ever since we started back in 2007. The beautifully-preserved Edwardian manor house is gorgeous. Set within 38 acres of grounds, it gives us an infinite variety of locations and settings for wedding photography. Read More

Although it’s still spring, Carla & Andy’s wedding at Ullet Road Unitarian Church had the feeling of being the first wedding of the summer. I started the day at their home in Liverpool to capture the bridal party getting ready, while Nick (filling in for Sarah after a minor op) captured team groom. Carla had made a last minute decision to upgrade to our Fusion package. This includes a film shown on our big screen before the first dance. The film contains stills as well as video footage from the marriage ceremony, and is also supplied on USB stick along with around 40 full resolution digital images. The rest of the photographs from the day are processed after the wedding and supplied later on of course. Read More

You know you’re in a swanky hotel when as you’re waiting for the bride and groom to arrive in their wedding car, Noel Gallagher strolls out of the front entrance (presumably doing some Christmas shopping, I wonder if Liam is on the naughty list). This was all quite fitting, as Rebecca and Luke had the look of a couple of movie stars throughout their big day as you’ll see. Read More

We don’t actually get many weddings with snow. I don’t think it’s global warming, just that January and February tend to be the coldest months, and are also fairly quiet in terms of weddings. However, Peckforton Castle is on top of its own little hill, sticking out of the Cheshire plain, so there was still some of the slight sprinkling of snow left from December’s little flurry when we got there for Sophie & Alex’s wedding.
As this was a Fusion package, we produce a video on the day incorporating still images combined with film from the wedding ceremony. You can pick whatever music you like for the film, but I have re-edited this one with some copyright-free music to allow sharing online:

We received this lovely email just before Christmas from Rebecca & Tom:
“Hello stu and Sarah!
Just want to say we got the video and I have been watching it every day! We are going to have previews with family over Christmas so thank you for getting it to us!
We can’t wait to give our parent albums out at presents they are all wrapped and ready. We have loved working with you and cannot thank you enough for everything!
Have a great Christmas and new year!
Rebecca and Tom xx ”
Photographing and filming their wedding at the stunning Rivington Hall Barn was an absolute pleasure, here’s their Short Form Wedding Film, followed by a small sample of the images from the day:

It’s been some time since our last blog post. Not that we haven’t had any great weddings to blog about, quite the opposite, the problem has been finding the time in-between photographing filming and editing, which is a nice problem to have. I couldn’t resist putting this one up though. Laura & Matthew were married at Saint Mary’s Church in Hooton on the Wirral, and their wedding ceremony was at the spectacular Soughton Hall in North Wales. Like many of the weddings this summer, the weather was a bit unhelpful at times, but we made the most of the sunnier spells and Laura, Matthew and their guests were a lovely crowd to spend the day with. Sarah was prime photographer for the day, with me (Stu) helping out at times as well as filming their Short Form Film. Read More

Kirsty & Steven’s was our first wedding at Gibbon Bridge, have to say, we love the place. Stunning location near the Forest of Bowland in Lancashire, with amazing landscaped gardens as well as a beautifully appointed hotel, it’s a great location for wedding photography.
As with many of our weddings we were providing both videography and photography, including a Same Day Edit wedding film which is presented in the evening on our huge projection screen:
