Wedding - Lyndsey & David - Oulton Hall, Oulton, Yorkshire

Christmas is always a great time of year. Frosty grounds, pale blue skies and festive cheer. the wedding of Lyndsey & David was such a great day and they were such a perfect couple to work with from start to finish. 

One of the best things about meeting up with my clients before their big day is that this then translates to them feeling comfortable and relaxed in knowing how I work throughout the day. With Lyndsey & David this was no exception. 

Oulton Hall is such a fabulous venue that offers such a great backdrop for a couples day. From the beautiful entrance hall through to the beautiful bar and eating areas. There is always plenty of places to capture stunning photos. 

the day seemed to go pretty swimmingly with a lot of time to be able to capture great couples photos. There was also some fantastic moments such as the singing waiters and the beautiful aesthetics of the church. 

Below are some of my favourite shots from their day. Thank you both once again!  

 

Wedding - Dale & Ashley - RingWood Hall Hotel, Chesterfield, Derbyshire

As a wedding photographer you genuinely feel blessed to be asked to photograph the weddings of great couples.  Never was that truer than with Dale & Ashley's wedding at Ringwood Hall Hotel, Derbyshire. As an added bonus it was great to have a  catch up with dale who is an old college friend of mine. 

On the homepage of my website, I try and sum up what typifies my photographic style.  The three word I use are natural, relaxed & beautiful.  I genuinely couldn’t think of three more fitting words for Dale & Ashley's wedding and indeed how amazing Ashley looked on her wedding day.  There was just an effortless charm and elegance to the whole day.

It’s been quite a while since I photographed this wedding yet my memory of it is really fresh or to be more precise my memory of Dale and Ashley, and what wonderful people they are is still very fresh in my mind. 

For the most part, my blog is pretty much were I waffle on about all the fab weddings I’ve been lucky enough to photograph, as a slight break from that tradition I’m going to leave this with a few words from Dale and Ashley and what they had to say about the experience of having me as their wedding photographer.

"Wow! the photos are incredible Chris! I'm so pleased with all your work and I'm so glad you were available on our date. Ashley's over the moon with them too. Ashley has just been telling me how nice you were in the morning while she was getting ready so I owe you the world for that because I think it really helped her cope with her nerves. Thanks again Chris Looking forward to seeing you again after the honeymoon."

..and here is the story of their wedding, a huge congratulations to both of you again.

Sheena & Nim's Wedding - Heaton House Farm, Cheshire

And off they go! 

Sheena & Nim's wedding photos are on their way to them as I write this. Not only has it been such a great pleasure to work with this wonderful couple but it has also taught me a lot along the way.

 

\ Thanks again to everyone involved (you know who you are! also a massive thanks to both Sheena's family as well as Nim's you all made me & scott so welcome! it really did mean the world and I hope what we have managed to capture is at least a small gesture of our appreciation for your kindness and open arms / 

Here is a few words from them...

"Chris the photos are amazing. We absolutely love them so much! 2000 photos!!! That's incredible! My dad loves the one of him taking me down the aisle the most! Just showed it to him and mum and the rest and they love them! Myself and Nimesh were just saying (and my Family) just how amazing you were on the day. You really went above and beyond and we can't ever thank you enough Chris. X"
Anyway here are a few of my favourites from the day. <3 

 

Introducing my new branding for 2016

As the eagle eyed of you will have noticed my logo on my site is now updated. This is just part of my all new branding for 2016. I feel my branding now encompasses a more original feel along with a different ways of presenting it. For example all of my albums will now feature 22-Carat gold logo's on the rear along with optional leather pouches and swing tags for their cases.  

Here is an example of my new 22-carat gold foil logo

I will be posting a lot more in the next few days about these exciting changes. 

Thank you.

So here we are at the end of the first month of 2016! 

In this post I thought I would reflect on my journey so far and look back at my time in the photographic world up to now. 

I feel I have a long way to go still but everyday I enjoy photography more and more and with that comes my drive to learn new techniques and evolve my work further. 

 

- Italy 2014 

Such beautiful scenery that draws you in to not only the beauty of the country but also the captivating lifestyle. 

 

- GoodWood Revival 2015 

I have honestly never been to such an incredible event that instantly transports you back in time. An event rich in history, a beautiful venue with the rarest automotive machinery at the heart of it. What is not to love.
