When Vicky and Mark came round to chat about their wedding photography I saw their strong connection. It is little things you notice, the squeeze of a hand, a look across. I had one thing on my mind that day, to capture the expressions, glances, touches and their happiness to be together. All those things we bundle up and call love.

Vicky’s wedding notes:
We decided on a spring wedding primarily as we both have birthdays just before Christmas so all our celebrations are at the end of the year, once we decided on St Anne’s and the White Hart as a venue everything else just fell in to place.
It seemed only logical to have a vintage feel wedding given the church plus I had decided on a lace Maggie Sottero dress from Blush in Uppermill.
I was very lucky to meet Paula from Elite wedding design through Mark’s sister early on in our planning, she is an amazing person who listened to everything we wanted and then improved or facilitated our ideas.
Through Paula we were introduced to Hayley the florist (Natural Fleur of Royton), another lovely lady with excellent vision and understanding. She blew us away with the flowers on the day, when you describe what you want there is always a doubt that you’ve been understood – I really had no need to worry with Hayley.
Paula also introduced us to Franny Ward, DJ and the outstanding band Stiffler’s mum (yes really, that’s what they’re called!). Once everyone was fed and the band started everyone hit the dancefloor, they are just an all round crowd pleaser.
Our cake had unbelievable detail taken from the lace on my veil curtesy of Suzanne at the frostery in Uppermill and must have tasted fabulous because when I went to get a piece it had all gone!

We were extremely lucky with the people we met and hired for our wedding, I can honestly say (and frequently do) recommend all of them to anyone else planning a wedding!

I hope that is what you wanted:-)I haven’t included you but obviously you were amazing, the pictures we are still trying to whittle down are out of this world and people are still commenting on them.


My 9th wedding of the year with a White Hart reception. Someone who booked their wedding photography for 2014 was a little worried I did weddings only at the White Hart! Well I do love the place, its very local for me, I am always happy with the opportunites for great photographs and the staff are always very helpful and polite. I’m happy to travel though and I’ve photographed weddings this year in Lancashire, Derbyshire, Manchester, Cheshire and Wales. The new car is getting 50mpg on a longer journey so its a little bit greener than the (trusty) old Golf was.
I’m posting one photo and a slideshow of the album design that was created using Sarah & Steve’s choices.

Night fell about 4 hours before we went outside to get this photo. Using a flash in a softbox up on to the side I balanced in the bright interior. Sarah looks flawless all day and this shows off both the shape and detail of her elegant dress. Steve was very relaxed all day, very easy to photograph. Getting something different every wedding, something that suits the time of year and their personalities makes every set of wedding images that little bit more special.

Each of these images is a double page spread in an A4 album, so each one is printed at A3 size.
