Peckforton Castle is a true Victorian country house located in the heart of Cheshire. Built in the style of a medieval castle, Peckforton Castle was a haven away from the social unrest in the UK during the mid-1840s and 1850s. It was a fortified structure meant to withstand the elements and more. With my photographs, I can bring the rich history of this grand structure to life in your wedding photographs. Since 1952, the castle has been listed as a Grade I luxury wedding venue. Its wedding planners will work with you to ensure all your wedding day dreams come true.
Peckforton Castle has 48 bedrooms, plus a drawing room and a hexagonal room where the bride and groom can spend their time getting ready. The great hall is ideal for the wedding ceremony. With two restaurants to choose from, you can choose from many menu options. As you begin your bridal preparations, I will start capturing moments. By the time of the first dance, I will be taking the final shots of the evening. If you are spending your first night as husband and wife at the castle, we may be able to sneak in a few sunset shots as well.

I'm a wedding photographer from West Yorkshire who's won awards. I've been a wedding photographer for over 14 years and provide casual and elegant photos of the day's activities and stunning, contemporary photos of the couple. The couple may enjoy some alone time and produce distinctive pictures. I prefer to tell people where to stand and how to pose themselves rather than dictating how they should look. As a result, you get stunning, natural wedding photos.
I've won several prestigious awards from the Guild of Photographers for my work as a wedding photographer.

1. What area do you cover?
I am based in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, which gives me access to Greater Manchester, Cheshire, and large areas of Yorkshire. As a rule, I am happy to travel up to 60 miles to cover a wedding. Any further than this I would have to charge a travel fee.
2. How many photos will I get from our wedding photography?
Every wedding is different and the number of images you receive can be a reflection of what moments are there to be captured. On a normal wedding day I usually deliver between 600-800 images to your online gallery.
3. How long will it be before I receive my wedding gallery?
I know how keen my couples are to see and share some images from their wedding day, so with this in mind I always like to provide a selection of teaser shots a day or two after the wedding day. This would usually be around 20-30 images. I then aim to deliver the full collection of images on an online gallery within 6-8 weeks.
4. Can I share my images and buy prints and wall art?
From the online gallery my coupes will have access to the full selection of wedding images, but they will be subtly watermarked. From the gallery you would be able to order any prints or wall art directly through my professional printing service. You would be able to share the gallery to any friends and family, and they too, would be able to order any prints they may like as well. If you wanted the full collection of high resolution images to share and keep, my couples do have the option of ordering a USB. See more on my packages page here.
5. How long have you been Photographing Weddings?
Having been photographing weddings for the best part of 13 years, I am a highly experienced photographer. I have been lucky to work at some of the countries premium wedding venues and have one many awards, including the prestigious Guild Of Photographers Wedding Photographer of the Year for 2021.
6. Are you fully Insured?
Yes, I have insurance for all my equipment as well as £2M public liability insurance. I also have Drone insurance as well as the necessary drone qualifications to be legal and safe when flying at a wedding.
7. Will we have to pay extra for Drone Photos?
No. I see my drone as an essential piece of equipment on a wedding day, and so long as the weather allows it and it is safe to do so, I will use it on your wedding day to capture shots of the venue, your guests and it allows me to get creative when getting shots of my couples too.
8. How do I book in for a chat about my wedding?
Get in touch using my contact page here and we can arrange a chat, either in person at my home in Brockholes, Holmfirth, or we can arrange a Zoom call.
Part of the wedding planning process is booking the right photographer. I would love to get to know you. Call today to schedule an appointment so we can sit down and learn a little about one another. Send an email if you prefer! The sooner I meet you, the more time I will have to create an idea of photos you would like to capture during your ceremony, reception and evening party.
