Shaw Hill Hotel Wedding Photography – Victoria & Jamie

Wedding Photography at Shaw Hill Hotel Chorley

On a wet day in September this lovely couple tied the knot. Victoria and Jamie were married in the Gold room at Shaw Hill Hotel in Chorley. The Gold room is a wonderful venue for any wedding, it is beautifully decorated with stunning views out across the Golf course.

Following the ceremony all the guests retreated to the conservatory where drinks and canopies were served. The beauty with Shaw Hill as a wedding venue is that, even when the weather does its worst, there is always somewhere dry, comfortable and bathed in beautiful natural light (which is an added bonus for us photographers) for the guests to enjoy themselves. The staff are also amazing as they will assist in any way they can, so the couple have the perfect day, and on this occasion it even included vacuuming up a tonne of confetti!

Time flies on a wedding day and it wasn’t long before the guests were seated for the wedding breakfast and it was time for me to leave. Victoria & Jamie’s wedding was a lovely happy day that wasn’t affected by the weather. I wish them both all the very best for their future together.

Devonshire House Wedding Photography – Joanna & Christopher

Wedding Photography at Devonshire House Chorley

Rain on your wedding day has long been considered a symbol of good luck. It is based on the Hindu idea that wet knot is harder to untie. So, if the amount of rain on Joanna and Christopher’s wedding day was anything to go by, then this couple will have a very long and happy marriage. It rained the entire day and was one of those days that was very challenging, but so very worth it. Joanna and Christopher didn’t let a little rain spoil their day though. Joanna beamed with joy all day, from the second she arrived at Devonshire house until I left them later that afternoon, her happiness and laughter were infectious.

Stanley House Hotel Wedding Photography – Annie & Paul

Wedding Photography at Stanley House Hotel Mellor


Annie and Paul were married in St Mary’s Church in Chorley and celebrated at Stanley House Hotel in Mellor. The day began with the groom and bride preparations. I love this part of the day, all the excitement and quality time spent together before the day really starts to get going. While I headed over to the girls, my friend and second photographer, headed over to the chaps to cover their preparations. The weather unfortunately wasn’t on our side, but that didn’t dampen any spirits. Annie’s preparations were laid back and included presents for all the bridesmaids.

The couple chose St Mary’s church in Chorley in which to marry, as it is their regular church and it meant a lot to them to be married there. Following the ceremony everybody headed over to Stanley House Hotel so the wedding celebrations could begin. The rain continued to fall but we were lucky enough to be able to find a few gaps in the weather to get some outdoor shots in the stunning grounds of Stanley House.

Here are a few photos of Annie and Paul’s fantastic wedding…..

Chorley Registry Office, Devonshire House Wedding Photography

Wedding Photography at Chorley Registry Office, Devonshire House

Dawn and Mark were married at Chorley Registry Office, Devonshire House in Chorley. Their wedding was a beautiful, very small and intimate ceremony involving the Bride, Groom and two witnesses. When I first met Dawn we did so in a pub on the opposite side of town to where she lives. Dawn explained to me that they wanted to keep things quiet and between themselves. There was some nerves in case anybody spotted us. However, she didn’t need to worry though as we were not seen and I am able to keep a secret, especially one as exciting as this!

On the day of the wedding Dawn and Mark arrived together looking radiant, excited and just a tiny bit nervous. We had just a short wait while the Bride and Groom had their pre-ceremony chats with the registrar and everything was put into place. The ceremony began with Dawn and Mike entering the room, hand in hand, closely followed by their parents, the witnesses. The ceremony was very special, intimate and individual to the couple. Following the ceremony, the couple signed the register before being presented with their marriage certificate. Their wedding ended with confetti and a few formal photos before they ventured off for a private meal.

Whether you are having, like Dawn and Mark, a small wedding or if you are having a big wedding with all your friends and family. I treat each and every wedding with same attention to detail, working my hardest to produce wedding photos that will last you a life time and will be your forever memories for you to look back on for years to come.

I wish Dawn and Mark a happy future together. I’d also like to thank them for having me as their wedding photographer and trusting me to keep their secret ahead of their big day.

Here are a few photos from their special day….
