Wedding photography for couples who want to tell their story.

Every Wedding is Special

I always limit the number of weddings I photograph each year to just 25. I believe it is the best way to put my couples first. Your wedding is special and should be treated that way by everybody involved. Don’t be just another number. I bring more than 10 years of wedding photography experience with me to your wedding day.

Every Couple is Unique.

I do have some off the shelf wedding photography packages, but I find my couples benefit from the flexibility of being able to have the coverage and wedding details that suits their special day.
I want to know about your vision for your wedding. The more involved I am the more beautiful images I will be able to create and give you those special lasting memories.

Experience

You can relax knowing you are investing in quality and experience. I have been photographing weddings full time since 2009 and have had the pleasure of photographing hundreds of weddings in that time.
I enjoy getting a little creative to produce some beautiful images but for most of the day, I will photograph the day as it unfolds naturally capturing the true feel of the wedding.

What my Couples Say
5/5

Award Winning Wedding Photographer.

In the more than 10 years I have been photographing weddings in the Cheshire and surrounding area I am delighted to have been awarded and featured by many of the organisations I trust and respect.

    Our Wedding Day.
    By Mr & Mrs Kenyon, on 23 Jan 2020Date of Wedding – 28 Dec 2019

    We got married on 28.12.19 in the Manor House and had the most perfect day ever. On the run-up to the wedding we were in regular contact with all of the wedding coordinators all of which were an absolute dream to work with. On the day of our wedding, everything went amazingly, they even let me set up a day early due to there being no wedding in the day before which was fantastic. Rooms we stayed in were fantastic and really in keeping with the character of the venue, would highly recommend the gatehouse to stay in the night before. The Manor House- WOW! Everyone commented on how stunning the venue was and if you get married at Christmas as we did it is fully decked out with gorgeous decorations and Christmas trees. Every member of staff I dealt with was just fantastic and nothing was too much for them. Thank you, Thornton Manor, for the most amazing, stress-free wedding day.

    The Manor House.
    By Faye Carmichael, on 02 Jan 2020Date of Wedding – 21 Oct 2019

    From our initial viewing of the venue, we knew this was the one for us. The venue speaks for itself and is just absolutely stunning. The staff were so incredibly kind, friendly and supportive from our first meeting to the final ta-ra’s the day following the wedding. They were so organised and nothing was too much to ask for. They put both myself and my husband at ease on the day, and it felt like having friends with us throughout. Our guests were blown away with the house and gardens, and how well kept it all is. If we could do it all over again we would, and we wouldn’t change a thing.

    Worst Experience of My Life
    By Choudhury, on 09 Aug 2019Date of Wedding – 28 Jul 2019

    Thornton Manor staff/management inexperience, ignorance and unprofessionalism ruined our special day; We booked and paid almost £10,000 for the Thornton Manor Garden Marquee for our wedding. All we wanted was the perfect day for her. It was the complete opposite. A substantial amount of money was exchanged to hire a marquee surrounded by gardens. So you’d expect the best customer service and satisfaction. Absolutely NOT. We booked a Toast Master on the management’s advice, paid extra for his services. This was a total disaster, the microphone did not work. The sound system was poor. The best man, bridesmaid speeches were all ruined, the actual ceremony was ruined. All speeches/music/songs/announcements were not heard by any of our guests. The event supervisor did not have a backup plan, did not have a spare microphone, and did not care at all to be honest. It was a DISASTER. It was raining – so you do not get to take pictures in the gardens, waltz the gardens, view the gardens and you do not get any discount or sympathy from Thornton Manor. Birkenhead is a VERY RAINY place. Please consider probable weather conditions. I complained about the whole experience – however, the management did not give a damn. Fell on deaf ears – very rude. They offered me £350 back for the toastmaster and said the event went well. Like hell it did – No remorse, no empathy, just £350 offered out of £10,000. I felt insulted; I told them to keep the money. I mean to rub salt in your wounds, is just an understatement. All Thornton Manor management care about is your money. Please seriously consider other venues before booking with this place for any event.

    To all the staff at Thornton Manor.
    By Mr and Mrs Langley, on 20 Jun 2019Date of Wedding – 15 Jun 2019

    Thank you so much for making our day so special. You went over and above with your support and took care of every little request (with a smile!) It was lovely to have Thornton Manor as ‘our house’ for the day. All our guests had a wonderful time too!

All staff on the day were incredible and I’d like to give a special mention to Dougie who was so relaxed and helped myself so much and nothing was too much for him. The day went brilliantly and I could not have asked for more for our special day. I am sending a million thank yous to you all! Many thanks for everything and more and the memories you have helped us create. Mr and Mrs Jones

    Thornton manor is the venue of my dreams.
    By Rachel Fallon, on 14 Jul 2017Date of Wedding – 16 Jun 2017

    Where do I start, Thornton manor is the venue of my dreams, from the moment I saw the Manor House I knew it was the only wedding venue for us, the Music room is unbelievably stunning. All the staff at Thornton manor are amazing, nothing is ever too much trouble, they go above and beyond with everything. All the staff were professional, friendly, helpful and efficient. James and I visited Thornton Manor a number of times on the run-up to our wedding, we were always made to feel incredibly welcome, nothing was ever too much trouble. The wedding coordinators are amazing and made the planning process so easy and smooth. All the staff on the day were fantastic and everything ran perfectly. All our guests were overwhelmed with the Manor House. I stayed in the thatched pavilion the night before the wedding which was gorgeous. All the guest who stayed in the Manor House on our wedding night loved their rooms and the catering the following day. James and I can’t thank everyone at Thornton Manor enough, you ready did make our wedding the most amazing day and I’d highly recommend Thornton Manor! Thank you so much, James and Rachel

    The natural beauty and neutral décor of the Dining Barn make it a flexible and inviting setting for your wedding breakfast and reception. Throw open the French doors and let the summer breeze drift in, or create a cosy atmosphere in the colder months with underfloor heating and fairy lights to decorate. Whatever the season, the lake and surrounding countryside create an enchanting backdrop throughout your day.

    Just had our daughter’s wedding at wonderful Sandhole. What an amazing day we all had. The staff were amazing and the whole celebration was so incredible. We are so lucky that we had such glorious weather for the time of year which only enhanced the whole day. With food by Top Table and entertainment from Giilan Edgar and his band I could not have wished for a more perfect wedding day for our daughter and her new husband. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants something a little bit special.

    Beautiful December Wedding.
    By Jacqui Binns, on 27 Dec 2018Date of Wedding – 22 Dec 2018

    Just a quick message to thank you for the most fabulous day on Saturday. My daughter got married at Sandhole and the whole day was truly perfect. From getting ready together in the morning and the meal. It’s really hard to single anything out as it was all marvellous. So many guests have commented on the beauty of the venue, the food (particularly those on special diets) and the excellent service. Sandhole Oak Barn is a very special place.

    Dream day.
    By Jen Bullivant, on 19 Dec 2018Date of Wedding – 15 Dec 2018

    What a privilege it is to be able to make dreams come true. The people of Sandhole and Top Table were fantastic. The whole day was perfect and the logistics of the day went along seamlessly. We didn’t have to worry about anything. The day went on with the staff doing everything they could for us. We couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you so much.

    We could not have had a more perfect day.
    By Lisa, on 16 Apr 2019Date of Wedding – 21 Nov 2018

    Sandhole Oak Barn was the first venue we viewed. The bar was set impossibly high, and we immediately returned to Sandhole after viewing only one other venue to confirm our booking. The staff are friendly, and all the staff we spoke to knew what we needed as they themselves had been married at the barn. Our guests loved the venue and the accommodation was fantastic. The breakfast was great and catered for various needs that ourselves and our guests had. We couldn’t have had a more perfect day, and Sandhole was a large part of this. Thank you to all the team at Sandhole! x

    The whole experience was fabulous.
    By Kathryn, on 16 Apr 2019Date of Wedding – 08 Nov 2018

    What beautiful place to have your special day. Went to a beautiful wedding and the whole experience was fabulous, the staff the location and the food was lovely

    Just stunningly perfect!
    By Graham Bower, on 19 Dec 2018Date of Wedding – 26 Oct 2018

    I am the father of the groom. Our story started two years ago when the wedding was being planned. We were due to meet our son and ‘daughter’ on a Sunday as they were due to visit 3 potential locations. We intended to meet them at their last place. However, after visiting Sandhole second we received a call from them to say ‘don’t bother with the third, we’ve found our dream location.’ Both sets of parents visited shortly afterwards and completely understood why. Since that time we visited several times to sort the menus, wine and everything else. It’s great how, despite how busy they were, the staff were only too willing to help. That also goes for Top Table too. The day ran like a dream and I can happily say it’s one of the best! We were also extremely pleased that Liz and Chris said it was perfect. And that’s the main thing. I couldn’t recommend the place highly enough. Thank you.

    We had the perfect wedding day.
    By Emily, on 16 Apr 2019Date of Wedding – 07 Oct 2018

    We’d been to view a few different venues for our wedding but none compared to here. The view of the lake was just the icing on the cake for us. We had a perfect wedding day here on 28th August. Amazing venue and staff. Highly recommend to anyone still looking for their perfect location! Can’t wait to pop back on our 1 year anniversary

    And it really is something special.
    By Louise, on 16 Apr 2019Date of Wedding – 29 Sep 2018

    As soon as we turned the corner and saw the lake we knew we didn’t want to get married anywhere else. Sandhole Oak Barn is stunning and we loved every second of our wedding day on Saturday 29th September. The staff were so helpful and friendly and it really is something special, thanks again.
