Bolton School Wedding Photography – Andrew & Sarah’s Wedding

When we first met Sarah & Andrew they explained exactly how they wanted THEIR wedding to be, it was to be all about their love for each other and how much fun their friends are….. well tick them 2 boxes 🙂

They are both massive Harry Potter fans so when they first saw Bolton School then they instantly fell in love with this amazing Bolton Wedding Venue, it fitted the theme perfectly.

We knew that this wedding was going to emotional one minute…. crazy the next and we weren’t disappointed and as the evening guests arrived and Sarahs Brothers band took to the stage the party really started and the dance floor never emptied.

Heres a few of our favourite images……..

Lumley Castle Wedding Photography – Martin & Jane

Lumley Castle Wedding Photography – Martin & Jane’s Wedding 

I have to say I am so glad Martin & Jane booked us as their Lumley Castle Wedding Photographers, it really is a stunning Durham Wedding Venue.We arrived the evening before and had a stroll around the castle with Martin & Jane it was obvious that their wedding was going to be special and it really was. The weather had been iffy to say the least but on the wedding day it was dry, bit err windy but dry:). Jane joined Jane (so many Jane’s) as she was getting ready & I grabbed a few shots of a rather calm Martin & his best man before the ceremony in the stunning waterford room. As the guests chatted we managed to grab a few shots in & around the castle, this venue has wonderful lighting you can really get some great atmospheric shots. The meal was served in the sumptuous Barons Hall a wonderful setting for a wedding. Dad gave a very emotional speech as did Martin & his best man… ok his best man just destroyed Martin but it was emotional :). Lumley Castle is as stunning at night as it is during the day & we were lucky the weather held off so we could get some shots around the castle all lit up. I love first dances and a really nice touch is when Jane had a dance with her Dad, who by now had relaxed and really enjoyed himself and if that wasn’t enough a serenade by Janes Brother just to add that little bit more emotion into a wonderfully emotional,fun wedding. This really was a great day and as we left for our 3 1/2 hour journey home we had a smile on our face and some great images to share with you……. enjoy

From Martin & Jane…. Thank you so much for capturing our special day. You were both brilliant & helped us stay calm and relaxed. We had such a perfect day and can’t wait to see our wedding photographs, were sure they will be AMAZING! Thanks again for everything, Martin & Jane We LOVE Lumley Castle and if you need an experienced Lumley Castle Wedding photographer then please get in touch, we would love to photograph a wedding at

Rufford Old Hall Wedding Photography by David & Jane Stanbury
I am so glad that Tracey & Anthony decided to book me as their Rufford Old Hall wedding photographer for so many reasons but the main reason is they LOVE photography. Their wedding was simply beautiful, just 18 of their closest family made this wedding ever so special for us to photograph.Our brief was simple, 1 hour, anything we wanted,anywhere….. WOW, you dont get that every day and to make things better Rufford Old Hall is National Trust so the gardens are stunning…. a wedding photographers dream venue :). Tracey & Anthony looked stunning and a joy to photograph (I could have spent all day) and Traceys smile was almost as bright as the gorgeous sunshine we had. Below are a small selection of my favourite images from a super day…. for you photographers out there all the images were shot on my Hasselblad and yes I did have fun 🙂






















Tracey & Anthony then left for an intimate meal at Northcote near clitheroe to indulge their second passion cooking.

Haigh Hall Asian Wedding Photography by David & Jane Stanbury

Part 2 of Bina & Bens Asian wedding at Haigh Hall say yet another dress change by Bina into a equally stunning traditional white wedding gown & Ben in a lounge suit. A very proud Dad walked Bina up the Aisle and after an emotional ceremony we managed to get another few minutes with Bina & Ben for some shots. I have to say thanks to Bina & Ben for dodging the showers to go outside for some gorgeous evening photographs & then back to the first dance and then…… WOW what a party, the dance floor was crammed, what an atmosphere & what a way to end a fantastic 3 days of events

A very relaxed Ben

Bina looked stunning in her gorgeous Bridal gown

Haigh Hall Asian Wedding Photography – Bina & Ben Part 1

Asian Wedding Photography – Bina & Ben’s Wedding was a lavish,colourful 2 part extravaganza at Haigh Hall. We first met Bina at her Mehndi celebrations and from that moment on the warmth & friendship we received from all her family was amazing, we were treated more like friends than photographers. Bina’s wedding dress was truly amazing, the colour,detail & sheer quality was breathtaking and a work of art to put on, but easy in the hands of an expert. We arrived at haigh Hall all decked out for the ceremony,the Hindu ceremony was to say the least fascinating and to think this ceremony dates back generations and the one thing that I did love most was ALL the family was involved. I got the chance to shoot a few quick images of Bina & Ben after the 2 hour ceremony but not long as she was whisked away to prepare for part 2 of the days celebrations………..

















Keep watching for Part 2 of this amazing wedding – coming soon

Wrightington Hotel Wedding Photography – Vivienne & Steven

Wrightington Hotel is a gorgeous modern hotel, great interiors and loads of scope for outdoor shots and the Bridal suite is stunning, so glad that Viv booked it to get ready in. When Jane & I arrived the bridesmaids were excited to say the least and through a secret window they watched Steven & his entourage arrive( you could hear the cheers from reception lol)The weather was glorious, and made Vivs dream of a ‘wedding abroad’ come true as the gardens looked stunning in the sunshine as we shot some amazing images by the lake. Viv & Steven’s theme was colourful & the Blazers Suite at Wrightington Hotel was amazing,full of colour. Three very nervous but funny speeches followed to continue the day and as we partied into the evening a fabulous sunset was the ‘icing on the cake’ to end a perfect day.
