BLACKPOOL WORKSHOP | SEPTEMBER 2013

A day after my 32rd birthday I was lucky enough to go along for a wedding photography workshop in Blackpool, with the very talented photographer,

Rosie Hardy.

The day was cloudy & overcast, and at the arrival time there was no beach to speak of, but we were always going ahead with the ‘bride’, Bethany &

‘groom’, Rory shoot! 😉

The benefit of training courses, is that you get to try out different things, so not only was this different to the other training courses I’ve been on,

I also tried a slightly different shooting style, so 90% of these are shot on my 50mm 1.4, to get a much shallower depth of field! And I must say I like the

results! 😉

We started off on the North Pier.

After the fun of the North Pier, and a spot of lunch, we headed to the beach, which had now appeared! Bonus!, as we brought out the props! 😉

Rachel & Andrew | All Hallow’s Church | East Keswick Village Hall | East Keswick | August 3rd 2013

RACHEL & ANDREW | ALL HALLOW’S CHURCH | EAST KESWICK VILLAGE HALL |  EAST KESWICK  | AUGUST 3RD 2013

From the first meeting I had with Rachel & Andrew I knew that they would be a great couple to photograph (not that the others aren’t!), but they both

were so easy going!

The wedding & reception were to be held very close to the house in which they both lived, but as I found out later, the church actually had a

sentimental meaning to Rachel, so was a wonderfully special place to be asked to photograph her & Andrew’s wedding day!

The church was All Hallows Church in Bardsey.

The wedding day started photographing the preparation of both the bride & groom, who although weren’t obviously in the same place – weren’t too far away from each other – these two just couldn’t be apart! 😉

Then the beautiful wedding car arrived, so it was soon to be off to All Hallows Church in Bardsey, just down the road!

At the church I managed to get a few with the groom & best man, also the groom’s party too! Just before the bride came round the corner I also managed to squeeze in a shot outside the lovely All Hallows church, with the bridesmaids!

As the groom, Andrew & best man seemingly laugh & joke inside the church, the beautiful bride arrives, accompanied by her uncle, ready to walk down the aisle.

After the gorgeous service, where you can see Rachel & Andrew are very much in love, it was outside to the Pimms tent & a few group & candid  shots, well for those not too busy at the bar! 😉

Not my idea the next picture – but hey its the bride & groom’s day & I’m there to help! 😉

Next came the time to photograph Rachel & Andrew together! I’d managed the day or 2 previous to have a look around the area too, so had plenty of ideas in mind!

Then we headed for the reception, which was at East Keswick Village Hall, which as you are about to see was decorated beautifully & was all done by Rachel & Andrew the day before!

After a lovely meal, which I was also offered!, came the speeches – the best man’s was particularly amusing 😉

After the speeches, came a very special & sentimental moment for Rachel, sadly her dad couldn’t be with her on her wedding day, but as a message to her dad, people were to release balloons  into the air with messages on.

The end of the day was nigh, well for me anyway!! I’m sure the party continued well into the night, but before I left was the cake cutting, the first dance & Dominic Halpin & the Honey B’s!

‘BIG’ 2 DAYS | HAZLEWOOD CASTLE | JUNE 2013

‘BIG’ 2 DAYS | HAZLEWOOD CASTLE | JUNE 2013

‘BIG 2 DAYS’ | HAZLEWOOD CASTLE | JUNE 2013

Over the last few months I have been very lucky to train & learn from some great photographers @ weddings & photo shoots.

This photo shoot was something slightly different!

Arranged by the ‘main’ photographer & a model agency, we, as photographers where given the option of a number of different shoots we could choose

throughout the day.

Some of these where more training sessions with the main photographer, but in the main, we where sent off in our own little groups of around 3/4

photographers, shown the areas & told we had free reign!

This was obviously a little nerve wrecking, but was so much fun & I feel I learnt more from this day than perhaps the ‘staged’ photo shoots.

Anyway below are some of the images from the day!

The first selection of image we’re with Miss Harrogate, Olivia, in what can only be described as really harsh sunlight – although it sounds great, sunlight

is the hardest weather to deal with! 😉

 We then ventured inside, which was SO warm!!, but we were this time photographing the lovely Jess, in a bridal boudoir setting! 😉

The final shoot of the day came after tea, it was a bridal shoot with Viv, in York centre. I decided to assist in this shoot, so didn’t manage to take too many images, but here’s 1 outside York Minster

The next day started with something a bit ‘new’ to me, the chance to do a little fashion like shoot in the grounds, again of Hazlewood Caste. This is something I was looking forward to, and actually really enjoyed.

The shots came thick & fast, the next one was a bride & groom shoot with Emily & Luke, who worked so well together, it made the shoot very easy! – Well easier anyway! 😉

Maria & Rick | St John The Baptist Church | Bretherton | The Villa | Wrea Green | March 21st 2013

MARIA & RICK | ST JOHN THE BAPTIST CHURCH | BRETHERTON | THE VILLA | WREA GREEN | MARCH 21ST 2013

 

I was lucky enough to photograph the wedding of Maria & Rick a few weeks ago.

As I already knew the couple I was very honoured that they asked me to do so.

The wedding ceremony was at a lovely little church on the outskirts of Leyland, St John the Baptist church in Bretherton.

The reception was held in Wrea Green at The Villa.

Both venues complemented the couple brilliantly, helped even more by the gorgeous vintage style dress Maria was wearing on the day, and all

finishing with something a little different, in the form of break-dancers after the last dance!

Below are some of the images from this wonderful, if a little windy, day!
