Save £150 on your wedding photographer!

Christmas is just around the corner as we all know so not many people think of booking their wedding photographer until after Christmas! But did you know you can save money with me by booking your wedding photographer just a couple of months earlier!?


Saving you a whopping £150 by booking before the end of December 2015!

– With you from Bridal preparations, the ceremony & your wedding reception up to the first dance!
– All photographs are professionally edited and will be presented on a pretty love heart shaped USB, for you and your family to share & print!
– Password protected online gallery so you and your family can see your photographs at any time!
– A4 Lay flat photobook worth over £100.00!!!

I know that my client’s wedding day is the most important day of all and capturing the little details and big gestures is so important to me. Some times, being a wedding photographer, I find that looking past what is happening directly in front of me and capturing the little expressions, these photographs make the most breath-taking and thought provoking photographs. They bring back all of your emotions from the big day and look stunning in my wedding albums. Producing natural, subtle, professional wedding photography.

Booking your wedding with me before the end of December could save you a lot of money. We all know how expensive a wedding can be, so saving money on the wedding photographer now, will help you in the long run. There is so much to plan so getting the photographer booked now will be one thing off your mind!

Have you thought about your make up, nails and hair for the big day yet? I also offer hair & beauty packages alongside these huge savings at a fantastic price.

The Cider ‘ouse Jam Nite @ The Man & Scythe, Bolton.

A couple of weeks ago I attended the fortnightly musical get together known as Cider ‘Ouse Jam Nite in Bolton. Held in our very own Cider House (The Man & Scythe on Churchgate) every 1st & 3rd Wednesday. The Cider ‘ouse Jam Nite is a great way for musicians to get together, learn a new instrument and socialise. The Jam starts at 7pm till 10:30pm and all attendees get a free slice of pizza! It doesn’t matter what style of music you play, everyone is welcome.

I decided to get a few shots of the people who attend, most attend on a regular basis. Young or old, anyone can attend Cider ‘ouse Jam Nite with any instrument. Check out this video I shot and edited to promote the night last year.

If you’d like to hire me to come and photograph your event please click this link to find out more or are you in a band or solo artist looking for a selection of professional photographs to promote yourself? If you are take a look at my portrait work by clicking here.

Meanwhile scroll down to see the photographs I took from the night! If you’d like to attend the next Jam Night here is a link to the Facebook page to find out when the next night will be held.

Enjoying Autumn: Pet Portraits, Photography and Lassie

Finally the fog has cleared and we can all see clearly again! Went for a beautiful walk to Pendle Hill over the weekend. It was warm, blue skies and the colour was like nothing I’d ever seen before. This Autumn has been no doubt the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. Maybe it’s because now I am driving and we have visited such a variety of different places? If you haven’t been to Pendle Hill I suggest you go, it’s an easy walk along a well worn path amongst some stunning scenery! To have a little look at the photographs I took on that walk click here.

Yesterday I grabbed a camera and headed for Rivington Pike! I wanted to capture some photographs of my Lassie, I love Portrait Photography especially animals and offer a great deal on Pet Portraits, take a look at my prices here. They can be so challenging to photograph yet extremely rewarding! We parked at Wilder’s Wood car park and headed up to Two Lads Cairn and along the way I captured some lovely shots of her. I have trained her to sit, stay, wait so she tends to make the process very easy but secretly I think she loves to pose!

As you can see…

Lassie my little poser

We carried on up the hill and it became much more foggy, it was such a spooky atmosphere! Lassie wasn’t bothered until we saw shape of a lady and her dog in the distance and she wasn’t too sure what it was! She slowly crept toward them. Eventually she realised it was just another doggy and she ran ahead, slightly relieved!


I love this photograph, may have to get a print of this for my wall, canvas I reckon to take pride of place. It’s so atmospheric I love the Autumnal colour in the foreground too.

Beautiful eyes

And finally this close up of her wet muddy face, doing what she loves best! Galloping through the wet boggy ground then pouncing on me with muddy paws. I love this dog so much and I am glad I have a large catalogue of images of her, that I can treasure forever.

Dogs come and when they have to leave us they leave behind a massive hole in our hearts, we should treasure our time together with them and document their lives through images, and memories. Take a look at my other pet portraits by clicking here.

Pendle Hill: One To Visit!

As well as photography another love of mine is walking. We’ve been all over the country and climbed some major UK mountains, including the 3 big ones. Ben Nevis, Snowdon and Sca Fell Pike! Last weekend was my opportunity to climb Pendle Hill, something I’ve wanted to do for a very long time.

As Autumn comes to a close and the early dark nights are setting in we have decided to keep the long walks to a minimum and have taken part in some more local walks. Last weekend we went to Pendle Hill the day after Halloween, spooky eh?! An hours drive down the M65 for us! What a fantastic day it was! It was one of the hottest November days on record too. Didn’t see any witches though unfortunately…

I thought I’d upload a couple of the photographs I took on the walk. I didn’t take my Nikon though this time so just used my very capable, less bulky, iPhone 5s camera to capture the days events.

We parked in the main car park in a lovely little village called Barley and all 21 of us (including dogs) set off towards Lower Ogden Reservoir, we shortly arrived at this beautiful forest.


We headed up here, ahead you can see a very steep yet short section where it then flattened out. I think this photograph just shows how the weather was absolutely wonderful for us!

Just before the ascent to the top of Pendle Hill, we decided to have a little break to eat our hummus wraps and have fun with the shadows!


And here we all are at the top, a great bunch of people with a love of the outdoors!

Here is the view from near the top as we made our way back down. A lovely view of the fog hanging low, felt like we were really high up. Pendle Hill is actually 557m which isn’t huge but this makes it a more accessible route for everyone.


We descended down the steps on another very well worn path along The Pendle Way and back to the pub The Pendle Inn for a well deserved brew! As you can see it was the perfect day out and is a firm family favourite, there is a lovely cafe at the car park in Barley and a couple of delightful pubs that serve food!

If getting outdoors and having a fantastic time in the best of company is your bag why not come along to one of our walks. We’ve been all over the country climbing mountains and fells, check out Bolton Outdoors, Walking and Ale Appreciation Society for information on up coming walks.
