The Wedding Day Replay

A friend works for The Roy Castle Lung Cancer charity – they do some brilliant work, so when she asked me to help them with an event, it was a delight.


The Wedding Day Replay

Every bride secretly wishes they could re-live their special day and wear that fabulous dress just one more time – and now they can!

The average cost of a wedding dress in the UK is £1340, yet the bride only gets to wear it once. After all the tears and tribulations involved in finding the right dress, and all the primping, planning and preparation invested in making sure they look and feel fabulous, most brides say that that their special day flies by far too quickly.

The Roy Castle Foundation is hosting a very special one-off event; inviting brides across Merseyside to get THAT dress out of the loft or off the top of the wardrobe and to wear it one more time.

And the Wedding Day Replay is not just open to brides, because bridesmaids, Maids of Honour, Mothers of the Bride and bridegrooms are all invited too! This is an opportunity for all Leading Ladies and their female friends and relatives to get dressed up and feel as glamorous as they did on their ‘special day’.

Some may have outgrown their gowns, or had them re-styled – while other dresses might have suffered damage ‘on the day’ – so the event will feature spot prizes to recognise the challenges involved in recreating the original fairy-tale.

Categories will include: ‘Most creative method of fitting into a dress’, ‘Most unusual stain’ and even ‘Best Charity Shop Outfit’ – for those who may have sold their original gown!

The event will take place on Thursday 11th September at the Pan Am Bar in Liverpool.

Tickets are priced at £20 and guests will receive two complementary cocktails.

Kids Party Photographer

Another kid’s party – they are events that as a photographer I really look forward to! Capturing the excitement and fun of the event is my task and I find the easiest way is to get to know the children and make it a game. So I recruit someone as my assistant and with the right kid by my side, the rest of the day goes a dream, even with the shyest of little ones. Give me a shout if you want your boy or girls special day recorded with some excellent photos !Birthday party preparations photo

Recommended review

Lovely review here – thanks for writing guys …

“David was our wedding photographer on 27th Feb 2014, and he was the ultimate professional, making us (specially my wife) calm and at ease on what is probably her most imprtant day. David was non intrusive and ensured that the end result was natural, warm and amazing quality photgraphs. David mingled with all the guests taking pictures without them realising which ensured that unguarded moments of happiness was captured. Any request we had was happliy taken on board . It is no mean task trying to herd all our friends and family together for group shots and credit to him he managed it in a jovial and confident manner (fair play to you :)) The photos are amazing and will forever remind us of a wonderful day, I would not hesitate to recommend David to anyone, and if anyone wants to get in touch with me to talk through my experiences then please get in touch with me. Thanks again for being part of our magical day. Cheers, Duncan and Debbie”

St Georges Hall Wedding

I was really excited to be back in the city centre for another St Georges Hall wedding. It is an impressive building, neo-classical but with loads of rooms to fit every size of wedding. And of course loads of great locations for pictures. Bride and Groom, Debbie and Duncan were super relaxed during the build up and it was great fun documenting some of the preparations at their house in south Liverpool.  Then it was in the posh cars for a trip into town.  And for March we were very lucky with the weather – chilly, but bright sunshine. Perfect setting for a perfect day. Congratulations again to Debbie and Duncan and choosing me to be your wedding photographer !

Engagement photography Merseyside

First off, it’s congratulations on your engagement. And more importantly, where was the question popped, what is the ring like? I need to know !!!!

In all the excitement of planning a wedding, don’t forget about the idea of having some professional engagement photos taken early on.

While many wedding photography packages come with a engagement shoot, myself included. It is a perfect opportunity for the couple to spend some time with me, so that everybody gets to know each other before the big day. It really does relax the nerves. Also it can often act as a run through, or a try out of different styles – perhaps hair or make-up – anything that you’ve been wondering how it will work. And of course, the shoot gives everyone a bit of time to think about the photography before the big day.

As a photographer I enjoy the freedom they bring. We have more time than at most weddings and can try out different styles and poses. And of course no beautiful white dress to worry about. We can prepare for the ‘getting ready’ shots and some couples use the final images as a basis for a big print that they have at the wedding for guests to sign. Which is always a nice touch.

Finally, engagement shoots are always fun. We can have a laugh and hopefully get over any ‘I hate my photo being taken’ concerns. For most couples is their first professional shoot together and my goal is always to give you the confidence that everything will be fine and smooth with the photography on your big day. I’m happy to take your lead on a location – a place that means something special to you guys as a couple, be it where you met, a memorable time in your lives or perhaps centred around an activity that you both love. At the end of the day anything goes and hopefully, the engagement shoot, is just the start of your journey towards the happiest day of your life !

Surrey wedding

This was a brilliant Surrey wedding, as it was between my Uncle Brian and his new partner Sue. So I travelled down from Merseyside to cover their special day in north-east Surrey, near London. Their ceremony was at the Weybridge register office on Oatlands Drive and it was really nice to see so many family members that I hadn’t seen for a while. Including my cousins and their rapidly growing children. The service was lovely and the weather held off for us, so we could get a few garden photographs.

Then of course it was off to the reception venue in the Royal British Legion club near my Uncle’s house in East Molesey. Brian has been a member of this club for many years and I have fond memories being here with my Grandmother on a number of ocassions. In particular my Uncle’s 50th birthday party, where a selection of jellied eels and other fish dishes were served ! And it turns out this was where the happy couple met, so it was a great celebration with all the guests and staff joining in the fun. So a few highlights below from a super family wedding.
