Michelle and Alastair's wedding.....

Follow Me on Pinterest
We were privileged to cover the wedding of Michelle and Alastair recently with the ceremony in Lydiate and the reception at the West Tower
The gents looked great in their kilts, apart from when they were lunging!
It was a lovely day and Michelle and Alastair were up for some portraits at sunset, and even though it was raining, we got some beautiful shots.......

Latest commercial work for commecial client causes me some trouble....

Follow Me on Pinterest
Had a close encounter with the authorities shooting these images for a commercial client. After I had shot them, I was apprehended coming out of a shop and told I had been "caught on camera taking photographs" (shock, horror!) and that really wasn't allowed "in the current climate"!!

I was then threatened with the confiscation of my camera and deletion of images!!

Thankfully, I managed to avoid that outcome after about 15 minutes of "discussion"!!
Anyway, here are a few of the images

Clare and Daniel's wedding

Follow Me on Pinterest
What a great day with Clare and Daniel and their families and friends! It was great to see Clare's family again after we covered the wedding of her brother Kev to Erica last year. The service was at Christ The King followed by reception at the spectacular Liverpool Town Hall. We had to contend with very changeable lighting with rain continually threatening in between bursts of blue skies and sunlight!
There was lots of fun and laughter throughout the day and we had a great time with the group shots and the portraits. The Town Hall proved a stunning back drop for photographs, especially the staircase and the Ball Room and the speeches in the council chamber worked really well!
Here are a few images from the day.....

Emma and Jake's wedding at Ness Gardens

We had a lovely day with Emma and Jake as they were married at Ness Gardens and had their reception at Mere Brook House.

There was a little rain in the air but it held off for the open air ceremony! We then wandered around the stunning gardens at Ness and got some great portrait shots of the happy couple.

Here are a few images from the day......
