Alex & Simon

The day finally arrived for Alex and Simon’s wedding day at The Saddleworth Hotel. Alex booked the Pixies nearly three years ago!! The sunshine had followed the international guest list all the way from Australia – sun sun and more sun!

A string trio and an elegantly dressed bride created the perfect English summer ceremony.

The day concluded with some final shots into the setting sun before the happy couple partied into the night!

Kate & Jack

Pott Shrigley church, you can’t get a more quintessentially English setting than this. There was even Japanese church spotters stalking around  :-)

Following the ceremony we shot off to Jack’s place of work… Poynton fire station! to have some unusual photos of the three of them (Kate, Jack and Jack’s favourite toy… a fire engine!)

Reception followed at the Hallmark Hotel, Wilmslow – Perfect end to a perfect day!

Helen & Steve

To The Saddleworth Hotel for a very wet wedding day with Helen & Steve, not much chance of tying the knot outside in the fabulous stone gazebo today! The ceremony took place in the equally atmospheric and intimate confines of the oak panelled room in the hotel. The reception followed in the amazing and city-chic styled ballroom (seeing is believing!) with a perfectly timed gap in the monsoon for some group and couple shots outside. The Saddleworth Hotel is one of the most perfect and manicured wedding venues I’ve photographed at – you can’t go wrong… especially with a never-ending supply of bacon butty’s during the evening buffet  :-)














Lisa & Russell

The sun shone at one of Pixies familiar haunts this weekend; Hargate Hall set in the Peak District National Park. Lisa & Russell had travelled all the way from the ‘Big Smoke’ along with their family, friends and a singing Kermit the Frog (that sang at the start of the ceremony, all to the amusement of their guests). An emotive ceremony with poetic vows and tearful speeches, the ceremony concluded on a musical note with guitar and some beautiful singing in both Welsh and English.

Following the group photography we managed to spend 25 minutes with Lisa & Russell in the grounds of Hargate, capturing a some great images. The evening entertainment started just as we were concluding our part, with Wild Clover – a great sounding ceilidh band.
