Why it has taken me so long to blog this wedding I do not know because everything about it is awesome! Tea- dresses, tweed suits, wild flowers, afternoon tea, succulents, sunshine and an oh-so-subtle Lord of the Rings theme…er, yes!!!
It was last Spring that I had the honour of capturing Charlotte and Paul’s wedding day at Heskin Hall in Wigan. I had met Charlotte and Paul a few months earlier for their engagement shoot and knew their day was going to be a fun one. I was not wrong!
Charlotte and Paul married in the beautiful Tudor manor house that is Heskin Hall surrounded by their friends and family and adorned in sunshine and smiles. The day could not have been more perfect.
I had the pleasure of shooting Kimberley and Alex’s wedding back in 2015 at Wellington Park in Chorley . It was one of the rainiest weddings I have ever photographed but that didn’t stop the smiles or us getting this awesome shot as Kimberley and Alex left St Andrews Church.
(You can see some more from their wedding day here)
Fast-forward to 2018 and Kim and Alex were the first couple to come to mind when I decided I wanted to start offering anniversary photo shoots alongside my engagement and wedding photography. We hadn’t had much luck on the wedding day of getting outdoor couple shots due to the rain so this seemed like a perfect opportunity! A couple of weeks ago we headed over to Cuerden Valley Park in Leyland for the anniversary shoot and amazingly…it wasn’t raining! It was so lovely to catch-up with Kim and Alex after three years and hear all about what they had been up to since their wedding day. I learned why Cureden Valley Park means so much to them and we managed to get some lovely shots within the hour that I was was them, here are a few…

Happy Anniversary you two! Wishing you many more years of love and happiness xx
This weekend myself and some of my favourite female family members headed to the Lake District for a weekend of maxing and relaxing. We stayed at the lovely Rowan Cottage in Backbarrow near Newby Bridge, a gorgeous converted mill overlooking the Leven estuary, and it was perfect!
The snow we’ve had in recent weeks seemed like a distant memory as we sipped gin cocktails and prosecco in our private hot tub. Between splashing about in the “hot tub of truth” and lounging around in our pajamas we also managed to explore the local countryside, debate what seemed like every topic in the world and eat our body weight in chocolate and snacks (mainly popcorn, so…much…popcorn).
I had a blast. And if you’re ever looking for a nice place to stay in Cumbria I would highly recommend this little spot.
Let’s just pretend Robyn is also in this photo…
Love you ladies x
