And were off!!

The wedding season starts next weekend, coinciding nicely with the start of spring.  We'll be at Haigh Hall with Lee and Miranda. I'm really looking forward to it. In preparation for their wedding:

I've booked the weather
Checked all the kit
Charged all the batteries (mine included)
Got some horse treats at the ready (don't ask!)

Looks like we're ready to go!

Carrying on with the social media theme....I've also created a new Facebook page for you to come and chat, ask questions, post some of your photos.

Tweet me!

It's been a few years now since I was dragged kicking and screaming into the digital age but now I'm here I'm thoroughly enjoying my little self.

Keeping in touch has always been important to me so now to make it a bit easier I've decided to join Twitter to make it a bit easier for us all to stay in touch.

Let's all tweet together at Twitter.

Fancy a great night out?

My old buddies at Sparth House in Clayton le Moors have arranged a fantastic evening to raise funds for the Justine Hargreaves Appeal .

The evening is on the 19th March at the hotel and it looks like it's going to be a great night.  As well as the excellent food and entertainment laid on there is a mega raffle with lots of great prizes provided by local businesses, you might even win yourself a photo shoot by your truly. It's got to be worth going just for that!!!

Why not treat yourselves to a night out and raise some money for a great cause at the same time?


It was sooooo busy at the Dunkenhalgh on Sunday.

Most of the major dates are now  booked for this year and next year already. We could have booked 28th May 1011  four times over!!

If you're thinking of booking us to do your wedding photography with us then please don't wait too long to do it as it really is getting busy and I'd hate for you to be disappointed.

So. The show. What a lot of exhibitors.

There were a lot of old friends and quite a few new ones.  Of course my priority is always to check out the food stalls and there were plenty to choose from, including one that did the most gorgeous looking chocolate dipped strawberries you've ever seen, and  they tasted as good as they looked.  I lingered for a while round there!

That's the end of the wedding fairs for us for a little while. It was lovely chatting with so many of you, please don't hesitate to get in touch if we can help in any way with your wedding, or indeed any other photography, you might want.

Out and about again.

This Sunday we will be  exhibiting at the wedding fair at the  Dunkenhalgh Hotel, Clayton le Moors.

Stop by and say hello, it's always lovely to see you.

In the meantime and carrying on with our recent theme of looking at the details:

It's easy to concentrate on the big things at a wedding, however, Bob and me like to take a peek at the details and make sure that we get lots of photos of them so that you won't forget about them in years to come.

This first photo is of a locket and wedding ring sewn onto the inside of a bride's gown. Both items were of huge sentimental value as they belonged to the bride's grandmother who had recently passed away. It was the bride's way of marking her respect and love for her Nan without making a song and dance about it.  I was really touched when I discovered what it was about. What a lovely gesture.

This next  photo was taken at Sparth House in Clayton le Moors.

It was an early May wedding and the cherry blossom was out in abundance. I thought it would be nice to pop the rings onto one of the trees because it would be a nice background picture in their album and a reminder to them of how pretty everything looked at their wedding. 

The petals fell like confetti from the trees in the gentle breeze, giving us lots of gorgeous, romantic photos which are featured in earlier posts on here. This photo is one of my very favourite detail pictures, mostly because it gives the impression of blossom and spring time but the stars of the show are the all important wedding bands.
