Nicola & Kirk | Wedding | The Ashes
The day started with the bridal preps at Nicolas parents house, this gave me the opportunity to get all those important details shots of shoes, flowers, perfume and jewellery.
We then headed over to St Peters Church in Maer to meet the groom ….Maer is a rural village in the Borough of Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, to the west of Stoke-on-Trent. It was at this church that Charles Darwin Married Josiah Wedgwood II daughter Emma. ( History lesson over !!)
I believe that Kirks parents and Grandparents had also been married at this church so we decided it would be nice to do the family groups in the same location. This done we headed over to The Ashes wedding venue for the reception. The Ashes is a magnificent Grade II* listed family home with two listed barns which have been caringly converted to provide an unrivalled venue for weddings, civil ceremonies, functions and corporate events.
At the Ashes the main photographs of the couple were taken along with some requested group shots, finishing off with the speecher prior to the wedding breakfast.
Here as usual are a few shots fro the day…..

Baby |Portrait | Photography

Baby’s First year…
I first met Jo and Andrew back in 2007 for their wedding photographs at Sandon Hall…….
In 2009 Jo and Andrew had their first child and came back to me for one of the WMG packages, this is a year in the life of a baby with photographs taken around every three months to show how baby changes over that first year, from new born to standing this is something parents can treasure for a lifetime.
As I have just finished B’s last session I thought it would be good to share a few images from some of the shoots.
Starting with the most recent

and just over a year ago…!!
