Best of 2018

A look back at the year in the life of a Lake District wedding photographer. Some of my favourite images and an opportunity to show you what I really like to shoot and what I get excited about; expressions, passing glances, touch, laughter, movement, hands, eyes, then its hunting the cool light and interesting compositions. Hopefully after all that the end result is the real stuff, the stuff that evokes a real memory and transports you back to the day itself, I’d like to think its a little bit beautiful too! Documentary wedding photography is my thing, but there is always time for a few portraits so I also have a few of those in the mix.

I started the year at Le Petit Chateau in Northumberland and ended it on new years eve at Askham Hall in Cumbria with Cheshire, Scotland and all over the Lake District in between. As you know the summer was a beautiful one, allowing me to capture the celebrations in those endless evenings. I also shot many winter weddings, natural light is limited but strikingly beautiful! As a wedding photographer in the Lake District I count my blessings to be able to live and work in this fabulous place and I want to congratulate and thank all the amazing couples and families I worked for last year, it was a complete pleasure to be a part of your momentous day.

Here are some of the amazing places I have visited this year:

Askham Hall in Penrith, Springkell in Dumfriesshire, Armathwaite Hall on Bassenthwaite Lake, The Inn on The Lake at Ullswater, Dalston Hall near Carlisle, Gilpin Lake House, Windermere, Storrs Hall Hotel near Windermere, Matfen Hall in Northumberland, Le Petit Chateau in Northumberland, Appleby Castle in Cumbria, Thornton Manor in Cheshire, New House Farm nr Cockermouth, Lingholm Estate near Keswick, Lindeth Howe in Windermere as well as a few on various private farms and village greens.
