2012 was a really exciting year for us; we had the pleasure of photographing 51 couple’s weddings which saw us travel the width and breath of Cheshire and throughout the North West; we met some fantastic people, visited some of the most amazing venues and captured memories that our Bride & Grooms can treasure forever.
We have pulled together a selection of our images from each of the 2012 weddings – we tried to limit ourselves to choosing only one image from each of the weddings we photographed – it was an extremely difficult task to choose just one as there were so many fantastic images from each day but we got there and we would love to share them with you.
For those of you who would sooner watch a video, we have also created a 2012 wedding video highlights blog page.
We are so lucky to have been involved in every one of our bride and grooms special days and we hope you enjoy looking at the images as much as we enjoyed photographing every single one of them.
