Hello and welcome

I'm a photographer based in Yorkshire who specialises in wedding,
portrait and headshot photography. I also undertake commercial
commissions, including interior photography, theatre productions and
event coverage.

I am married to Kelly, my long suffering wife, and we live in Huddersfield with our cat, Simon.

I've always had a passion for photography, from watching my grandad
repair old cameras in his spare room to looking through the press
photography of my godfather.

I endeavour to create detailed, stunning and memorable images and my mantra is simple:- there's beauty in everything!

So, sit back with a cuppa and have a browse through my blog. Comments
are always welcome, so don't be shy (Although I will delete anything
that is abusive or makes fun of my hair!)


Amy & Nick’s Nostell Priory Wedding

Back in August (on Kelly’s birthday, as it happens) we joined the lovely Amy & Nick for their wedding at Nostell Priory. The ceremony took place in Wragby Church, which is in the grounds of Nostell, so all the guests got to take a scenic (but not too long) walk through the estate. Amy and Nick had chosen music as their theme for the day – suitably so, as Amy in particular is a very talented musician able to play multiple instruments.

So, without any further waffle from me, have a look through some highlights from the day…

Check the little music-stand placenames – how ace are these?! pbp169w-405

What to do with that old guitar – a gift box, of course! pbp169w-415 pbp169w-429

Nick’s dad runs a company that makes ice cream and, as a surprise for him, Amy & Nick had arranged for it to be part of dessert! pbp169w-446 pbp169w-455

Before the wedding Nick had secretly been taking dance lessons, so he could sweep Amy off her feet… pbp169w-498 pbp169w-500 pbp169w-504

The first band of the night featured Amy’s dad on bass – that guy can rock! pbp169w-507 pbp169w-510

It’s not just Amy’s side of the family that have musical skills – here’s the groom banging the skins…

… although Amy then joined in with the second band’s horn section! pbp169w-529

Even a bridesmaid got in on the action. Here she is belting out Aretha Franklin’s ‘Respect’… and I mean BELTING! pbp169w-536 pbp169w-538

No reception is complete without a dance-off between the girls and boys. With moves like these needless to say the girls won… 😉 pbp169w-543

We had a fantastic day with Amy & Nick. The guests were all lovely and the staff at Nostell were top-notch as usual. Here’s to a future filled with love, happiness and plenty of music!
