042 wedding-branxholm-scotland-park-photography.jpg

A wedding in a Victorian Country Mansion! What more could you want?!

Courtney & Rob got married and celebrated with friends and family at the stunning Branxholm Park, Scotland.

When Courtney & Rob asked me to photograph their wedding, they told me the venue they had chosen was Branxholm Park.
I’ll be honest, never heard of it. But I won’t forget this place!
The venue truly is like no other! There wasn’t an area of the grounds that was used more than once.

If you’re looking for a unique venue, then you must visit Branxholm Park. You will not be disappointed.

Christening of Sophie Hughes // St Lawrence's Church, Barton

When photographing Christening and Baptism ceremonies, I document the day using the same natural approach as with my wedding and lifestyle photography. 

I love to start the shoot before the ceremony as the baby is being dressed, and godparents are helping out. Capturing small details and natural moments that tell a story for the whole day.

Contact me HERE to enquire about capturing your child's special day.

Here is a selection of photographs for Sophie's Christening over at St Lawrence's Church, Barton, Lancashire:

Eaves Hall, Clitheroe Wedding // Kit & Gaz

Eaves Hall Wedding Photography Anthony Ives Lancashire Photographer


It's pretty rare to get snow on your wedding day, but when it becomes reality, it really is amazing.
Freezing cold but who cares?! IT'S SNOWING!

Kit & Gaz got married at the amazing Eaves Hall. A stunning venue at the best of times but for it be covered in snow made it something else. Did I mention it snowed?!

I felt so lucky to capture their big day with all their friends and family. The love they received was incredible. 
There were tears and lots of laughter, a perfect wedding.

Shireburn Arms, Clitheroe Wedding // Jo & Jason

I’ve got a few blogs to post from some amazing weddings last year. But for now, I'm going to start with the wedding of Jo and Jason who were married in Much Hoole and then held their reception at the amazing Shireburn Arms in Clitheroe.

Here’s the story of their day…

It's not just Weddings!

As much as I love photographing weddings, I also love to capture life at home!
I have done many photoshoots 'out and about' but lately I have been able to do some 'Home Shoots'. Here are some photographs from a home shoot I did a little while ago.

Thank you Joe, Mel, Maggie & Thomas!

It was such a lovely, relaxed day followed by some lively party vibes for the reception!
