Ann and David's Wedding at The Old School House, Great John Street Hotel in Manchester - Natural, Photojournalistic wedding photography in Oldham



What an incredibly lovely day to be part of. David and Ann chose to have their wedding at the exclusive and very individual Great John Street Hotel in Manchester. The venue was simply stunning and I can't recommend it highly enough. Ann and David were so sweet with each other and it was a genuine delight to share in their day.

Phill and Sophie's Wedding at St James Church, Thornham, Royton then Thornham Road, Royton - Natural wedding photography in Oldham

Here are a few of my favourite images from Phill and Sophie's wedding. I was commissioned to cover Sophie getting ready at her parents' house, the ceremony at St James Church, Thornham in Royton and then in a marquee in a field off Thornham Road, Royton for the wedding breakfast. It was such a lovely day and the wedding party were lovely and warm. I've photographed in St James' Church, Thornham before and I really love the church - it has real character! The marquee was dressed in a really lovely way - very much like an English tea party. If you are looking for a relaxed, natural photographer working in a photojournalistic / reportage style then get in touch. I am based in Shaw, Oldham but am more than happy to travel around the north west.

Here are a few of my favourite photographs from Rob and Emma's wedding at the Clough Manor in Denshaw, Saddleworth, Oldham. It was a really lovely day and the guests were great fun - the room was set up beautifully and it was a pleasure capturing natural portraits of the happy couple with the Pennines in the background.

Caity and Steve's Wedding at The Woodman Inn, Thunder Bridge, Huddersfield - natural, photojournalist wedding photograhy

As Caity and Steve had already had their wedding ceremony in Greece a couple of months prior to this evening, I was only with them for a few hours in the evening. The Woodman Inn in Huddersfield was a stunning venue set in lovely countryside (although it was dark when we were there!) - perfect for a wedding. It's always lovely to capture such relaxed shots as these are. If you are interested in a photojournalist wedding photographer that specialises in telling the story of your day, get in touch. I work from Oldham, Lancs but am happy to travel further afield.

Here are some of the images from the evening:

Newborn Photography in Royton, Oldham - natural shots

Here are a few preview shots from a recent newborn photography studio session in Royton, Oldham. It was a real pleasure being with such a lovely couple and a totally adorable little lady. Where possible I try to capture a range of shots of your newborn baby to give you real variety. Shoots are from £29 and the studio is set up in the comfort of your own home - definitely a benefit when little ones are involved as they are more content at home. Get in touch for your studio shoot.

Tony and Denise's Wedding: Rochdale Town Hall / Registry Office, Littleborough Band Stand and the Littleborough Coach House - Wedding Photography Oldham

Here are a few of my favourite images from Tony and Denise's wedding. The ceremony was held at Rochdale Town Hall in their registry office - a lovely little room which has great light falling on the couple. After a few quick portraits with the beautiful Rochdale Town Hall as the backdrop we jumped on to a vintage bus and headed to the Band Stand in Hare Hill Park in Littleborough. The weather was perfect as the guests listened to a local youth band play for them. From here, the party moved to the historic Littleborough Coach House. I specialise in photojournalistic reportage wedding photography in the Oldham, Rochdale, Saddleworth, Norden areas but I am more than happy travelling further afield. If you want natural, unposed pictures get in touch for a bespoke quote.

Wedding Photography in Shaw, Oldham - Capturing a Wedding at The George Street Chapel, Oldham

The George Street Chapel in Oldham is absolutely stunning and I had the pleasure of doing some commercial wedding photography of the venue earlier in the year. The chapel was set up for a mock wedding to showcase how beautiful it could be! For a smaller wedding, the George Street Chapel is stunning as you can see by the wedding photography here.

I'd love to shoot an actual wedding at The George Street Chapel - if you are interested, get in touch. I am a wedding photographer specialising in natural portraits based in Shaw, Oldham but I am willing to travel throughout the UK.

Family and Pet Portrait Photography in Shaw, Oldham

Thought it would be nice to blog a few of my favourite family portrait shoots that I've taken recently. I've had the pleasure of photographing families in Shaw, Rochdale, Oldham and Saddleworth over the last few months. On top of that, I've done a range of pet photography portraits - my favourite being in Heaton Park, Manchester. If you are looking for a family photographer in the Oldham area (willing to travel!) to capture family portraits, check out my packages at - I set up a home studio at your home and spend 2 hours with you. All the images I take are provided on a DVD with no restrictions on printing or sharing. This means you can order your own prints/canvases much cheaper than you could if using a photography studio. As I teach I have an enhanced criminal records check too so you can be entirely comfortable with me taking pictures of your tiny loved ones. I have done newborn pictures through to whole family pictures.

Please get in touch for family photography, newborn photography and pet photography in Shaw, Oldham and Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Yorkshire.

Lindsey and Paul's beautiful wedding at the Pennine Manor, Wedding Photography, Oldham

A little late, but here are some pictures from a really beautiful wedding at the Pennine Manor, Scapegoat Hill, Huddersfield. A really lovely venue with stunning views across both sides of the Pennines. Felt like you could see forever. Lindsey and Paul were such a lovely couple to work with and their day was such an intimate and lovely day - a real privilege to be involved. wedding photography lindsey_paul_webb_wedding_IMG_6075 lindsey_paul_webb_wedding_IMG_6435 lindsey_paul_webb_wedding_IMG_6484 lindsey_paul_webb_wedding_IMG_6533 lindsey_paul_webb_wedding_IMG_6546 lindsey_paul_webb_wedding_IMG_6550 lindsey_paul_webb_wedding_IMG_6562 lindsey_paul_webb_wedding_IMG_6637 lindsey_paul_webb_wedding_IMG_6770 lindsey_paul_webb_wedding_IMG_6865 lindsey_paul_webb_wedding_IMG_7196 lindsey_paul_webb_wedding_IMG_7389 lindsey_paul_webb_wedding_IMG_7665 lindsey_paul_webb_wedding_IMG_7676

Tommy and Shelley's Wedding at Dukes 92, Manchester

Here are a few preview shots of a wonderful wedding at Duke 92s, Castlefield, Manchester. It was a superb venue both for photography, but also for a wedding! Beautiful lighting for the ceremony, then very urban landscape that created some excellent portraits. We were blessed for 15 minutes whilst the rain stopped and the light fell on the Beetham Tower and a rainbow appeared.

Rachel and Shaun's NY's Eve Wedding @ The Mercure Norton Grange, Rochdale

What better day to have a wedding than New Year's Eve? Spirits are high and it seems a perfectly symbolic moment - a moment when you look to new futures. Well, Rachel and Shaun decided to have their special wedding at the Norton Grange Hotel in Rochdale on New Year's Eve. It was a wonderful wedding, and I hope the photography captured some of it. Here are just a few sneak images that I photographed on the day. rachel_shaun_walker_wedding_full colour_IMG_0187 rachel_shaun_walker_wedding_full colour_IMG_0215 rachel_shaun_walker_wedding_full colour_IMG_0365 rachel_shaun_walker_wedding_full colour_IMG_0407 rachel_shaun_walker_wedding_full colour_IMG_0915 rachel_shaun_walker_wedding_full colour_IMG_1097 rachel_shaun_walker_wedding_full colour_IMG_1401 shaunwalker_wedding_IMG_0428 shaunwalker_wedding_IMG_0601 shaunwalker_wedding_IMG_0607 shaunwalker_wedding_IMG_0759
