Ribble Valley & Lancashire wedding & family photographer
Well that it is. 2023 is over already! I remember when I was a child, my Mum used to say about how time goes by quicker as you get older. I can confirm that she is 100% correct with that one. 2023 was my 7th year of being a family photographer and my 6th of being a Lancashire wedding photographer (I also cover the North West). I still can’t believe I have been self employed for this long. 2023 has seen a few changes for my business. The main one being a huge rebrand and name change! I’ve got to say, I love it!
2023 has been amazing! I have been so lucky to work with so many fantastic couples and talented wedding suppliers. Being a Lancashire wedding photographer, the majority of my weddings have taken place in Lancashire, but I have also shot weddings in The Lake District in Cumbria, Merseyside, Manchester and Yorkshire. Most of my weddings have been local to where I live in the Ribble Valley which I absolutely love! I am so lucky to be surrounded by gorgeous wedding venues including, Bashall Barn, Mitton Hall, Eaves Hall, Shireburn Arms, Browsholme Hall and The Outbarn to name a few! I have also shot at some amazing venues for the first time this year too – Malmasion in Liverpool & Cockley Woods Weddings in Yorkshire. Actually, Emily and Josh’s Cockley Wood wedding was featured on Whimsical Wonderland wedding blog!
Random facts – Bashall Barn was my most shot at venue this year (5 times) and Lauren was my most popular bride name (4 lovely Lauren’s – 2 of them at Bashall Barn!!).
I can’t wait to see what 2024 brings. My diary is filling up nicely and I have some new venues to work at too. I am so excited to shoot at The Inn on the Lake, Chester Zoo and Sefton Palm House. Well, I have shot at Sefton Palm House before, but I was shooting for someone else.
Thank you to all my friends, family and amazing couples who have supported me along my journey. It means the world!
Happy New Year!
