It is SO important that you feel as relaxed as possible with us clicking away on your big day. This is why we encourage people to have a pre-wedding shoot.

You choose a location that is special to you, and we go take a stroll with you and our cameras, simple as that! It gives us opportunity to get to know each other more and by the time your wedding day is here, you’re naturals. No location is too crazy so don’t be shy, although if you’re really struggling to think of a place to have it, just ask, we have some fab places to recommend.

The shoot is £250, takes around one to two hours and you get your full print resolution images in an online password protected gallery. And remember – you don’t need to be getting married to have a shoot!

Lytham St Annes Pre Wedding Shoot – Kate & Paul

As we spotted Kate outside St Annes pier waiting for us, she was visibly nervous. I mean, come on. You’re going about your business, and then a pair of photographers turn up to follow you around the beach for a couple of hours. W ...

Fleetwood Pre-wedding Shoot – Sam & Craig

These two ❤ We met Sam and Craig at a wedding exhibition at their soon to be wedding venue, The Dalmeny Hotel in Lytham St. Annes, Lancashire. We all instantly clicked (pun intended!) and they booked us to shoot their big day! They told us how awkward they are when a camera is pointed at them, so a pre-wedding shoot was perfect for them to get rid of any nerves or awkwardness before their big day ...

Lake District Pre-wedding Shoot – Ella & Mark

One rare, mild autumnal evening last month, we drove to Cumbria to meet Ella and Mark. These two are getting married over Christmas in Scotland (yes, how romantic!?), and wanted to bring a little of their current Lake District home into the wedding - so they asked us to shoot a pre-wedding session for them :) We met at Bardsea Beach near Ulverston, a place where some of my family originate from ...

Cheshire Pre Wedding Photography – Helen & Simon

Helen and Simon are a country couple through and through. Later in the year, we are shooting their home-made wedding in the Cheshire countryside, and so one sunny evening we drove down to the farm to see how the plans were going. We always love to shoot around an hour before the sun sets - when the golden light of sunset just begins to creep in, making amazing shadows and a romantic dusky atmosphe ...

Southport Pre-wedding Photography – Caroline & Paul

Pre wedding shoots for us are all about getting to know how couples connect with each other. They're a great way for us to all feel comfortable around each other before the wedding day, but what we're really looking for is that spark between them that really lets us into their personality as a couple. Caroline and Paul chose to have their shoot in Southport's Royal Botanical Gardens - seven miles ...

St. Annes Pre-wedding Shoot – Erin & Darren

Last night's shoot with these two was AMAZING. Like every couple, they started off being very nervous and I don't think they quite believed me when I said they'd love it after 5 minutes, but they did! This shoot is the perfect example of why we advise our couples to have their pre-wedding shoot as close to sunset as possible. That light! The shoot was also an awesome opportunity to catch up and fi ...

And OH MY GOODNESS, Dora their pug is just GORGEOUS!!! I was imagining every way possible to smuggle her home after the shoot but I think they would have noticed! Laura and Rya ...

Cleveleys Pre-wedding Shoot – Steph & Matt

A couple of weeks ago, one nippy spring evening, we went for a walk with Steph and Matt along Cleveley's seafront. It's literally on their doorstep and they love it there so it was the perfect choice for their shoot. Cleveleys is only half an hour away from us, but it was the first time we'd been along the sea front and it was so lovely! There are various art installations including 'Mary's Shell' ...

London Pre-wedding Shoot – Claire & Emma

Claire and Emma chose to have their pre wedding shoot in Claire’s home town of Weybridge, just inside the M25 - so an epic road trip ensued from our home in Lancashire. We travelled down together and stayed over in Shepperton just down the road, overlooking the Thames and got to know the place where Claire grew up. The shoot day was also Claire’s birthday, so we knew we had to pull out something s ...

Lytham Pre-wedding Shoot – Michelle & Richie

We don’t mind a little damp and wind during our shoots, in fact a nice sprinkling of fresh rain can be really enjoyable! It was about at this point when we huddled together for a brew and a chat in a lovely Lytham cafe talking over Michelle & Richie’s upcoming wedding at Glenskirlie Castle in Scotland. We then decided to brave it, walking round some of the less known spots in Lytham to begin t ...

Usually it’s our amazing couples with the built-up nerves b ...

Living in the UK, we're obviously not always as lucky as we were on the evening of this shoot, but if we can, we try and shoot toward sunset in the hope of some interesting light and maybe even a sunset. As Lancahire wedding photographers we are lucky to have ...
