Claire and Andrew. July 2014

A trip out to the west coast of Cumbria to film Claire and Andrew's wedding at the beginning of July. Beautiful sunny day, horse and carriage, birthday surprises, lots of games for the kids, Whitehaven Festival day, a stroll by the harbour and oh yes, a wedding too.

Barry and Elaine at Abbey House Hotel

Abbey House Hotel was the venue back in June for Barry and Elaine's big day. Red Ferrari, fireworks, magician, blue sky - what more could you ask for. Photos covered by Steve Hillman photography, magic by Joel Dickinson

Olivia and Daniel. Abbey House Hotel.

Another hot, sunny day - making up for the past few years ! Olivia and Daniel journeyed by horse and carriage from St Mary's Church on Walney Island back to Abbey House Hotel for the reception. Strange how things work from one year to the next, you don't film at a particular venue for ages then you're there 3 or 4 times in one season.

A Day Out in Cheshire

Once in a while I get to travel abroad - that is, out of Cumbria. Richard and Danielle got in touch through a couple who's wedding I filmed a few years ago at the now non existent Coot on the Tarn at Great Urswick (we have all the best place names in Cumbria) So apart from being 'let out' for the day and a chance to meet up with old friends and their new family I had the pleasure of filming a really fun day out in the country. An incredible amount of work had gone into the preparation of the marquee reception which, as we all learned later, had almost sunk in the mud and rain a few days before!! Bright blue skies were the order of the day, lots of love and laughter - brilliant. It's always great to work alongside truly professional photographers and those who read my blog on a regular basis will know my feelings on that, Kate and Kev of Depict Photography now join my list :)

Barry's Big Red Car

Barry and Elaine's wedding at Abbey House Hotel was the chance of a lifetime for Barry (apart from the small detail of the wedding that is) His dream car for a day - and the dreams of all the male guests too going by the dewy eyed looks and drooling :) This is just the short 'spoiler' I posted on Facebook for them before I sent the proof.

Sarah and Phil. May 2014

A new venue for me, New House Farm, Lorton A beautiful setting at the foot of some of Lakelands most dramatic mountain scenery. Sarah and Phil enjoyed a day of sunshine and friendship with excellent live music from Classic Ensembles during the daylight hours and the brilliant Carlisle based band 'Highly Strung' for the evening dance. Working alongside Mike of Eden Valley Photography it all added up to a very enjoyable day for everyone.
