Engagement shoot at Formby Beach, Merseyside

Jack parkinson

How I love to explore new places!  Well, I say new, as I haven't been to Formby Beach since I was in High School and even then I might be wrong with that!  Situated not too far from Southport it's a short drive from my home in Lancashire and really is a treasure! 

Annisa and Ben get married next year at the stunning Oak Tree of Peover but wanted to have a little warm up session before their big day.  Maybe a warm up session is the wrong term, as when we arrived and it was COLD!  It is winter after all and heading to the sea side I guess we were hopeful that it would be warm... we can only hope.

It was lovely to catch up with them both and go exploring around Formby as it really does offer a range of backdrops for photos from woodland, sand dunes and if you're feeling really brave you can splash into the sea.  As it was cold enough just being there we figured shots by the sea would be enough at this time of year. 

Are you thinking of having a pre-wedding shoot to warm up before your special wedding day?  Be sure to get in touch and we can go explore together!

Spring fun at the stunning Rivington Barn, Lancashire.

I met Emily and Mike at a wedding fair but as they can be super busy we arranged to meet again at my little wedding den to talk about their big day and for me to hear their story.  Working in the army means Mike is away a lot leaving the planning to Emily but upon seeing the day it's safe to say he left it in safe hands.

BRIDAL PREPARATIONS AND THE WEDDING SERVICE.

Emily got ready at home in Lancashire with her family, bridesmaids and flower girls before heading over to the church in an awesome VW camper van.  I arrived before to see Mike greeting the guests as they arrived looking very smart in his army suit.  The service was how it should be, fun, relaxed and full of smiles and laughter!  After the service, everyone headed outside to greet the newlyweds which is the perfect time to capture some real moments.

NATURAL WEDDING AT RIVINGTON BARN, LANCASHIRE

I don't think Rivington barn can look bad... well maybe when it's all empty with the lights up full after a party it won't look too shiny... but setup for a wedding, WOW!  It's a real show stopper when you walk into the place.  The tables looked amazing and the lights in there really set it off.  We arrived with plenty of time before the meal to allow for more candid photos of the guests enjoying themselves before being called in for the speeches and wedding breakfast.  

The evening was full of laughter and dancing provided by Natty Bee's Vintage Hire and DFC meaning the party never stopped as people dressed up for the photo booth and danced away into the night allowing for some great party images for them to remember!

Kick-ass maternity shoot! - Haigh Hall, Lancashire.

Jack parkinson

Joanna and Matt are expecting their little dude to arrive next month and they're super excited about his arrival!  They wanted a shoot to show off the bump and to capture this special time of their lives.  I first met Joanna on the music scene around town and have kept in touch via the powers of social media ever since.  We braved the November air and headed to Haigh Hall, Lancashire were they both rocked up looking like rock stars, even braving heels!!!  

It was lots of fun exploring, hearing about their future plans and capturing some awesome pictures for them to treasure!  It was something a little different for me to capture but I loved every minute of it!  

Looking for some pictures of your bump and loved one?  Give me a shout!! 

Manchester Street Photography: Protests

Jack parkinson

Sometimes you just have to get out there shoot what's going on!  It's great to capture street photography for everyday events but when something big is going on, the temptation to capture that part of history is too great.  I grabbed my little Fuji X100T, headed into Manchester and capture the signs, the people and the city.  It was amazing to see so many people out to make a point in a peaceful way.

Liverpool Street Photography 14th October 2017

Jack parkinson

When I'm not shooting weddings I love shoot street photography and capturing the modern world.  Here's some snaps from my day out in Liverpool with the Fuji X-Pro 2.  

Bartle Hall, North West Wedding: Jen and Phil

Jack parkinson

It was a pleasure to be asked to capture the wedding of Jen and Phil after meeting them at a wedding a few years before.  They were super friendly at that wedding so I knew we were in for a great time come their wedding day and it certainly didn't disappoint!  

They'd chosen a church local to them for their service which is always nice as it is always more personal.  There were plenty of smiles throughout from the moment Jen walked up the aisle to the moment they greeted their guests outside.

As the service came to an end the rain stopped allowing us to capture pictures outside before we headed over to Bartle Hall in the North West.  They'd chosen to have their reception in the barn building which is the perfect spot for your relaxed wedding with it's rustic charm and lovely gardens.

There's plenty of photo opportunities at Bartle Hotel that allow you to capture the perfect wedding images.  I love to capture the natural moments and with everyone gathered in their large reception space, it's perfect for those documentary images.

Harthill Weddings, North West Wedding: Faye and Sam

Jack parkinson

Faye and Sam choice to marry at St Thomas' church in Warrington with their family and friends in attendance.  With it being an earlier wedding I was asked to capture the guests arriving at the church which was the perfect opportunity to capture some natural photos of people greeting each other as they arrived.  Faye was all smiles when she arrived and this continued throughout the service as they exchanged their vows.  

After the service we headed to Harthill Weddings in Cheshire, North West where the celebrations where to continue.  The sun had decided to come out which was great as it meant everyone was able to hang outside and catch up over drinks and ice cream.  This again was the perfect time to capture candid images of guests enjoying themselves! 

After the speeches when the sun had lowered a little we headed out for some portraits in the golden sun which was lots of fun.  On the way back I noticed the garden games were in use so had to dash over to capture the games in action!  Before the first dance and the evening reception there was a hilarious quiz between Sam and his best man which had everyone cheering and laughing!

Enjoy the gallery below!!

Blackpool Street Photography

Jack parkinson

Sometimes it's nice to just get out there and shoot the world as you see it.  Heading into Blackpool when it's raining and misty didn't seem like a good idea but once we got shooting it was clear we'd made the right decision to head out into the cold and wet as it added a whole new feel to the images!

Grosvenor Pulford, North West Wedding: Rachel and Jake

Jack parkinson

Rachel and Jake had their wedding at the stunning Grosvenor Pulford situated near Chester in the North West.  The hotel and grounds here are simply stunning and the day after the wedding you can book in for a spa treatment to soothe yourselves after the madness!!

Rachels wedding was loads of fun with the bridesmaids in good spirits and helping her get into her dress and adding her finishing touches.  When she walked down the aisle she was smiling from ear to ear and any nerves that Jake had vanished when he saw how awesome she looked! 

After the service, the guests headed out into the gardens to mingle while we took some family formals before heading back inside to chat and drink.  This was the perfect time for some natural wedding photos catching guests enjoying themselves.  

Before the wedding breakfast, we headed back into the gardens for some natural wedding portraits taking advantage of the greenery and the stunning surrounding area.  They fell into each other easily and had a great time together smiling throughout.  After the meal and speeches, we headed to the back of the venue to make the most of the setting sun.  The rear gardens at Grosvenor Pulford are amazing!  They're designed in a Japanese style with beautiful rocks and a waterfall and with the sun setting we couldn't have asked for a better spot!  It allowed for some stunning wedding images for them to look back on over the years!

The evening entertainment was brought by recommended suppliers of mine, Agent Smith.  A band I've known for some time who always bring an amazing show!  They had the dance floor moving and even worked the room encouraging guests to relax and put on their dancing shoes!
