Shot in Manchester recently with Fuji X-T1 and Fuji 56mm F1.2. There is nothing quite like a church service. This image reflects the moment and the religious nature of a wedding service. Shot wide open, the bokeh and out of focus effects are demonstrated in the row of candles, which is what initially drew me to this shot. I waited for the priest to begin the prayers and the result is a shot I love.

Taken recently in Poulton. Shot with Fuji X-E2 with Fuji 90mm F2. During wedding coverage I am always looking for 'moments'. This shot is just such a moment. The light is amazing and as I love black and white this works perfectly. My assistant Jess took this shot and I love it.

I purposely left the clock in. It adds perspective but also demonstrates the impact of the day. Bridal prep starts out relaxed but time can run away with you.

During this wedding at Clifton Arms Hotel Lytham Glynn and Sandra went for a walk on the green at Lytham. I followed along. It was a 1940's weekend. They were treated like royalty. They were even given a glass of champagne. Lovely. Nikon D3 24-70mm

I shot this during Leanne & Paul's Wedding in the Lake District. I concentrate on the bride and groom but I do look for people having a moment! This is one such moment. I picked her out and to make it more impactive shot at her eye level. One of my favourites.

I took this a few years ago in St Kentigerns Church Blackpool. For me this all about the light. Soft diffused light falling on Dianne's face adds contrast and the light coming through her veil is just lovely. Nikon D3

I took this image at a Wedding at Bartle Hall. Sadly it was a wet day. During the speeches this little boy came in, having been 'playing' outside. It was a speech stopper and Im sure his parents can laugh now, but they did'nt then! It didn't help with his blonde hair and white suit!

I always capture images of flowers, venue, cars and anything else that the Bride and Groom have chosen and paid for. Its really important to get these detail shots. However for me the main subjects are people. These are the images that Im drawn to and that my clients appreciate the most. These images reflect candid, photojournalistic and natural wedding photography.

I set aside part of each wedding day for some couple shots and group shots. Its the only part of the day that I do this. The rest of the day I don't interfere at all.This was shot at Elizabeth's and Adam's wedding only last Saturday. The couple wanted some shots in Wrea Green by the duck pond. When I arrived it was school sports day with people everywhere. I set this shot up to hide all the people on the green. Including the foreground, moving focus point and adding a little flash works really well.They are not posing just talking to each other. Fuji 16mm Fuji X-T1

Here is the groom waiting for his bride. He didn't expect a friendly shove from his wife. The expression on her face is just brilliant. I always smile when I see this image. This was taken a couple of years ago on a Canon 5DII. Im smiling looking at it now!

Its not posed, like most of my images. By shooting lower I was able to include the reflection in the table which certainly adds to the image. Taken at Ribby Hall Village Wrea Green using Fuji X-T1 16mm

I shot this very recently at a Wedding at Bartle Hall Preston. This image was taken during the bridal prep at Heather's house. This is Heather just before she left for church. I positioned myself on the stairs and used the bannister to frame the image and give me cover. Not posed and a memory forever. Fuji X100T 23mm
