Here are some of my stories, which gives you a small insight into what I do and how I work.


Kirkley Hall Wedding

Kirstie & Simon Kirkley – 22nd May 2009
There are not many times when a couple can have such an obvious choice for a wedding. Simon’s surname is the same as your wedding venue Kirkley Hall, it seems like a perfect match. The wedding went very well. Kirstie and Simon are a nice quiet couple, with a lovely family around them, so I knew it was going to be intimate and emotional.
The ceremony was sweet, and all of the guests were excited to see them getting together. I think Simon was trying his best to disguise his nerves with a lot of laughter and joking. But in the end, he was like every other groom I have met, very nervous. Kirstie held it together a bit longer, but the photo of her walking into the ceremony gives away it all away, giving her mum one last look.
The weather was perfect for them, a nice sunny day, but not too hot. We managed to get some nice shots of them alone away from the crowd, in the secret garden. These photos show an intimate moment when they were not in public sight and could relax. From our position, we caught a moment that they never knew could be caught. We like to do things this way, be unobtrusive and blend into the scenery.
The Evening was finished off with a release of Chinese Lanterns, into the still night.

Congratulations to Mr and Mrs Kirkley

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
