Emily & Kevin: Wedding Videography at The Gibbon Bridge in Lancashire.

Whilst filming these bridal/groom preparations, I discovered the difference between Venus & Mars,

Venus is full of music, beauty products and lots of champagne, Mars has Stella & Top Gear on Dave…

As you can see in the trailer above, Sam wanted to make sure he shared a bit of the limelight with Mum & Dad 🙂

My favorite moments about Emily & Kevin’s wedding…

Emily making an early appearance in her rollers & dressing gown to practice walking down the aisle with her bridesmaids (which I just have to include in the film)

Sam’s perfectly timed entrance into the ceremony

The Cake (this clip does not do it justice)

The Father of the Bride introducing every table in his speech

It was my first time shooting at Gibbon Bridge, both rooms looked fantastic and the staff were so helpful on the day, I’m back here next year, looking forward to it.

A beautiful Bride, handsome Groom, gorgeous venue, what more could you ask for…a lovely Autumn wedding for everyone involved

Catherine & Jason: Wedding Photography at The leyland Hotel, Lancashire.

At Last, a wedding were I did not need to use The Sat-Nag to find my way 🙂

The weather was just about on our side for the group photos and i gotta say Jason was a natural when it came to the shots, i just pointed the camera and from no where, ‘Catalogue Pose’!

It was the details which really made this wedding for me (some you will have seen in the video) smokey drinks?, skull & crossbones and the personalised desserts which The Leyland Hotel prepared.

Now i have to mention the dance floor…. Break Dancing, Dirty Dancing (the lift move), Austin Powers, they did it all and very funny it was 🙂

CLBE 2013: Lancashire Business Event Videography.

I was asked again to cover the Central Lancashire Business Event which is a free networking event hosted by South Ribble, ChorleyPreston Council & Events Northern. This years event took place at Chorley Town Hall and the guest speakers were Ray O’Connor from Reach Further, Andy Chemney from Ignition CBS Ltd and Mike Ode from Potential Unearthed.

As usual, i attend these events hoping to meet new contacts but always find myself too busy (i somehow manage to find time for the buffet though).

It was a great event and well worth checking out for next year if you are looking at business advice or you generally want to network.

You can find the link for last years event here.

Surf-Air by Waves Ltd. Promotional web video in Lancashire.

Sometimes you get a call to film ‘X’, they describe ‘X’ but you still can’t picture it until it is in front of you.

Below is ‘X’, or to give its official name, ‘Surf Air’.

Waves Ltd

Douglas at Murphys Waves Ltd asked me to create a promo for a prototype to show on their website and at a trade show in America.

SIT had the job of building the inflatable and we ended up filming in their back yard, as you can see from the picture above we had to get some tight camera angles to cut out as much of the working environment as possible which did put a few restrictions on quality but overall i think we managed!

Chris from SIT actually told me that people could not believe we shot it there!

Once the guys got on the machine, that’s where the fun started, I really wish I wasn’t filming on this occasion, it looked a blast!

If you are interested, here are some of the out-takes which I posted on our facebook page.

Leyland Live 2013

The Creative Network returned to Leyland for 1 scorching weekend of live entertainment!

Nigel (never out of the papers) Stewart put together a great line up in the pubs, clubs, restaurants and on the streets of Leyland….

I had the very easy duty of documenting a few of the highlights over the 2 days, The Street Monkeys (hope they have good insurance) could be seen jumping off walls at Peek-a-Brew, Ryan & Tom really got the crowds going in The Railway & The Gables on Saturday Night, James Christy entertained the crowds outside Peppermint Cottage and that was just a very small percentage of what happened that weekend.

Chorley Live is coming in October and Nigel tells me there will be a lot more after that!

Lancashire Promotional Video

This one was a lot of fun to film…


Me & Karen from South Ribble spent a morning around Leyland filming some of the local business owners talking about their town. For a totally unscripted shoot, they pulled out some really good performances, although as you can see here, it was not 100% perfect. We had a rough preview a couple of weeks later, which was basically me holding an iPad in front of 20ish people which slightly made me nervous but it gained some great reactions from all involved, i’ll settle for that!
Thanks to Peppermint Cottage, Haines Watts, Poppys Flowers, Paces & Laces, Leyland Market, Solicitors Direct.

A long and verrrry busy day for me on this one… 


Leyland Festival 2013 really raised the bar after a few hiccups over previous years, the sun showed its face just at the right time as thousands of people swarmed to Worden Park for a fun, family day out.
I won’t write too much about the day as you have probably just watched the film above but after reading lots of comments on their facebook page, it would appear that this years festival has kickstarted a bit of love for annual event.
Thanks to APC Overnight, Leyland Albion, Dance Talent Studio and Lucy Yates(the festival Queen herself) for their help with the film.

Isobel from Paces & Laces asked me to come down and photograph some of her shoes to upload onto their new website…

as you can probably see, there was quite a few that needed doing so we managed to get a quick production line going…SHOE-CLICK-NEXT, no time for any fancy set ups on this one!

Finally, a bit of a personal post here…my wife fosters cats for Blackpool Cats in Care and we received our first pregnant cat a few months ago so i decided to capture a few of the highlights of our time with her (and them).
The footage was shot on whatever device was in reach at the time,Camcorder, DSLR, Go-Pro and even and iPhone


Did you manage not to cry?
We didn’t!
