Sarah and Steven Wedding – Mesnes Park Wigan

Sarah and Steven had a lovely, relaxed wedding at The Lodge in Mesnes Park, Wigan.  I absolutely adored their summery, yellow theme and Sarah looked gorgeous in her beautiful, scalloped v-neck dress. I was only with the couple for a few hours on the day but my favourite part was definitely  when the Vespas came out to play! Seeing the excitement on Steven’s face as we were able to get some photos with them. After the ceremony their guests strolled over to the lovely Italian restaurant Franco’s where they had a relaxed and happy afternoon reception with food, champagne and cake.  Such a great day in the Autumn sunshine and a very cool wedding!

Hannah & Paul – Bolton School Wedding

Hannah and Paul had a lovely traditional wedding at Christ Church in Ainsworth, Bolton. Hannah Stunned everybody as she entered the church in the most beautiful wedding dress and it was a pleasure to caputure the look on Pauls face as she made her way down the aisle surrounded by so many family and friends. The ceremony was filled with both laughter and emotion brought in part by chief bridesmaid’s lovely reading to her little sister, which can be read here.

The reception was held at Bolton School, one of the oldest schools in Lancashire, and was a perfect choice of venue for Harry Potter fan Hannah. With its castle-like exterior, old stone corridors and staircases we could have believed we were at Hogwarts as we shot some beautiful photos around the school.

An absolutely gorgeous day filled with laughter and lots of dancing! Here are some of my favorites from the day…

Tweet Challenge – Update.

Emma Nelson Photography Tweet Challenge

So its been a week since I set myself the Twitter Tweet Challenge. My aim was to post 2 tweets a day in the hopes of kickstarting a more regular use of Twitter.

So how did I do? At the start of the week I was doing pretty well, remembering to share my Pintrest boards and Instagram posts with a few random tweets thrown in between. I did start to dwindle towards the end of the week but I have definitely got in the habit of checking my Twitter feed more regularly, which is good. I now follow alot of interesting photography related pages which I like to keep updated with.

Some of the new pages I now follow:

The British Journal of Photography – This one is my favourite for  photography news from the editors of the British Journal of Photography (a monthly magazine for professional photographers).

Magnum Photos – An archive of iconic Photographs produced by Magnum photographers, updated daily with new work from all over the world. Good for when you’re in need of some inspiration.

Feature Shoot – Showcases new projects from emerging photographers as well as established photographers. I really like reading about photographers ideas behind thier projects so this one is a good one for that.

Jasmine Star – My absolute favourite wedding photographer, I follow her on Facebook, Youtube and Instagram so now I can complete the collection!

PetaPixel – I enjoy this feed for daily nuggets of interesting, quirky and undiscovered examples of photography and photo art.

So at the start of the week my tweet count was on 11. Today it stands at 28. Meaning I did an average 2.48 tweets a day throughout the week! I’ll take that! I also gained 52 Followers, result!

Maybe I’ll check back when I reach 100 posts 😉 If you’d like to follow me you can find me at


Bank Holiday Monday Morning Loveliness

coast to coast bank holiday breakfastcoast to coast bank holiday breakfast

I don’t usually feel the hype around bank holidays (as I’m usually working) but this morning was lovely. Graeme surprised me with flowers as I was in the bathroom, brushing my teeth and then whisked us off for breakfast at Coast to Coast. I think half of Bolton must have had the same idea as it was pretty busy. Graeme ordered pancakes (my usual choice) and I decided on the millionaire waffles for a change. It felt like eating dessert for breakfast which was awesome and the waffles went perfectly with my caramel latte. Mmmm. The best bit was, we then came home and went back to bed!  Perfect bank holiday laziness.
