Wedding flowers

What is not to like? Always different and always wonderful. Obviously as a wedding photographer, I get to see a lot of flowers and bouquets and I love it. Often I get to met florists, doing the final touches to a big display and like me, they want the couple’s day to go perfect. Attention to detail and calmness is key.

A few of my favourites below.

Lee and Paul’s wedding at The Hard Days Night Hotel

Always exciting for me to cover weddings at The Hard Days Night Hotel. It is one of the nicest party and wedding venues in the city – lovely, super helpful staff and of course a brilliant interior, with loads of great photos of the Fab Four ! I’ve worked here as a photographer on a regular basis since it opened and it’s one of my favourites !

It was an absolute pleasure to be asked to be Lee and Paul’s wedding photographer for the day. They live in Dundee and it is a city that I have very fond memories of, as I studied there for four years at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art. So I had quite a few conversations with relatives and guests remembering places (mainly pubs), in between covering their special day.

Lee wore a beautiful vintage styled bespoke dress, while the gentlemen looked super smart in matching suits. And, as a special touch the hotel upgraded them to the bridal suite, complete with a Lennon mini grand piano !

Sneak Peek at an Italian wedding

I was lucky enough to be asked to take some photos for a lovely couple who married in Tuscany, Italy. Absolutely stunning venue and reception. The Bride and Groom have asked for a little privacy – so only a taster here I’m afraid. Enjoy !

Wedding photography at Hillbark Hotel

Wedding photography on the Wirral

I was lucky to be asked to be Simon and Rebecca’s wedding photographer recently. They were married in the wonderful Hillbark Hotel, on the Wirral in Merseyside, a short drive from Liverpool. They had a winter theme and the venue looked absolutely amazing, with loads of reds, seasonal flowers, matching perfectly with button-holes and bridesmaids dresses.

Day started with the bridal party, capturing all the preparation details and final touches. I went for a journalistic style of photography, standing back, letting things unfold, rather than posing too many images. And hopefully the photographs show that.

We used the wonderful venue at Hillbark Hotel to it’s full extent, using all the period features in many of the photos. Later Rebecca and Simon had a ceilidh band and traditional dances – absolutely great fun and brilliant to take pictures. Definitely one of my favourite weddings !

Hope Street Hotel wedding photography

Harriet and Sam marry at Hope Street Hotel

I had an instant rapport with Harriet and Sam when I met them for a free consultation – they seemed relaxed and organised about their wedding and had some strong opinions and ideas about the photography that they wanted. Their’s was very much a city wedding, taking in the sights of Liverpool and using one of the finest boutique hotel venues for their reception, the Hope Street Hotel.

Hard Days Night Hotel wedding photography

Hitched at the Hard Days Night Hotel!

Many years in the planning, the Hard Days Night Hotel is located in a converted 1884 building in the city the Beatles made famous. The venue has loads of original Beatles related photographs and prints and is amazing to wander around. Even some of the guest bedrooms are musically themed. It is a fantastic venue for a wedding and I was lucky enough to be the wedding photographer for Andrea and John on their special day.

The ceremony was held in Hard Days Night Hotel’s intimate chapel. So it was good, as all the guests were in one place for the whole day and no transport was required from venue to venue.

After the ceremony, the guests relaxed with a few drinks, while Andrea and John took me on a tour of the John Lennon-themed bridal suite. It is complete with a mini-grand piano – white of course. Also it gave us a chance to get some lovely relaxed portraits and give the happy couple a few moments to relax away from the crowds.

The reception went on into the night and I was there to capture the arrival of the evening guests and the bride and groom’s first dance. The venue transforms it’s ‘chapel’ into a great evening dancing venue and of course, during the room change around, it gives the guests an opportunity to check the couple of intimate bars in the hotel. It also meant I could have a short, but necessary break !

Happy couple photo

Congratulations and many thanks to Andrea and John. A truely wonderful day, with them and their kind families and friends.
