Wedding Photographer of the Year –
PKIR Top 20

Well, wasn’t 2020 a strange year!?  Covid-19 and the National Lockdowns have had a disastrous effect on the wedding industry.  And my heart goes out to all those poor couples who have had to make the terrible decision to delay, or even cancel, their wedding day plans. 

Back in March 2020, literally days before the first Lockdown was announced, I was surprised and delighted to find myself the recipient of this amazing accolade – Wedding Photographer of the Year – Top 20.  To be included amongst the great and the good of this esteemed list is a real honour.  Yet it seems like such a long time ago now.  And at the time of writing this, it also seems like such a long time to go until things will be back to normal again.

But things WILL get back to normal eventually.  I am convinced of it.  And when they do, I can’t wait to get straight back in the saddle, doing what I love most – telling stories through photography, creating images that will bring back those special day feelings for a lifetime or more. 

Please take a look at my best of 2019 gallery, or my portfolio.  And if you fancy having a chat about your wedding plans for the future, I would love to hear from you via my packages & contact page. 

End of Year Round-Up –
A selection of favourites

Wedding Photography round-up

2020 has been a Covid catastrophe, let’s face it.  But the preceding year was a belter, and when all this craziness is over, the good times will roll again.  I had so much fun shooting weddings in 2019 – working with many beautiful couples in wonderful venues across the North West and beyond. For one thing, it’s a joy just to be invited along!  But to be able to do what I love – taking pictures – at such important events is literally a dream come true.  

Best of 

In truth, I shy away from the notion of ‘best of’.  I am immensely proud of ALL of the work I deliver to my couples.  So what you see below and in the slide show is merely a selection that happened to make the cut on one particular day in the studio.  Please take a look at my blog posts for a more full account of what I was up to in the time before lockdown.

All angles covered

I love to take a relaxed, documentary approach to wedding photography.  Happily, most couples feel the same way.  I hope this selection of images shows a range of moments and events throughout an entire wedding day, from bridal prep to the party later on that can be captured in this way.  However I also believe that there is still a space for those romantic portraits too, where we grab a few minutes away from the party.  In any case, memories and emotions are the most important elements of a wedding to relive later on, and I hope these pictures go some way to enabling just that…
