Hi! I’m Claire and before we get chatting all things wedding here is a little about me. 

I have an adorable Beagle called Sulley; I created him his own instagram profile and he still takes up 90% of my personal instagram feed.

My husband and I are addicted to Pixar films, we planned a pixar inspired wedding and named our dog after Sullivan from Monsters Inc.

I have an unhealthy addiction to Cadbury chocolate.

I’m currently trying to make the move from cider to Ale, but you’ll still find me choosing a nice cold Rekorderlig at the bar. 

I buy notebooks and planners on a monthly bases because I love how pretty they are. I’m addicted to Pinterest and anything house related.

I LOVE lush, wild flowers with my favourites being ranunculus, Astilbes and eucalyptus. 

I adore evenings in with tasty food and Netflix binging, find Thomas Shelby’s accent in Peaky Blinders strangely attractive. I enjoy having friends round for evenings in and catching up and have a small understanding of the rules and play of American Football. 

I love hot chocolate and marshmallows, cheesy christmas movies, the entire soundtrack to guardians of the galaxy and a cheese and ham toastie made by my husband.

I studied photography at university, gaining a Bachelor of Arts with honours degree. When I graduated I jumped straight into photography working mainly within the fashion industry at the time. I shot my first wedding in 2012. 

Since then I have been regional finalist twice for the Best Photographer award at the UK Wedding Industry Awards and nominated as female wedding photographer of the year in the Great Northern Wedding Awards 2016.

In 2016/2017 Beaverbrooks the jewellers used a selection of my images nationally within their store windows and in house marketing which is still in use today.

Now onto Weddings...

I’m a manchester girl, now based in Cheshire but shoot weddings all over the world...  I would never describe my approach as a fly on the wall; I want to get to know you and your guests. Be a part of the fun and laughter, the banter and the mischief, whatever your friends and family are up to; however they are enjoying your day I want them to be relaxed and  involve me in those moments so you have images which when you look back on you’ll be able to relive those moments and memories again and again through your photographic gallery. 

I keep it simple, I just want you to have fun and capture that.

I love how every wedding is unique and truly represents you as a couple from your colour scheme to your decor, music choices and attire. No other wedding will ever be like yours. Each wedding I strive to push myself creatively and aim to get you a gallery of images as unique as your day.
