The Villa is a fantastic venue for a wedding on the edge of The Lake District, with some fantastic locations for photographs, especially on a fine summers day!

The whole wedding was at the hotel, which makes it slightly less stressful for the photographer, but I went to the couples house to photograph the bridal preparations and Dave my second photographer on the day went to spend time with the boys! Whilst the hours before the wedding can sometimes be the most stressful, you can also get some great natural shots, and this couple didn't seem at all nervous about their forthcoming nuptials.

We photographed the whole day from the service, to the speeches, to the garden games right through to 1st dance and beyond, here are just a few shots from the day!

Longlands Inn Wedding Of Asher & Steve https://www.gavinhaworthphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/7/longlands-inn-wedding-of-asher-steve I was back at The Longlands Inn at Tewitfield, near Carnforth for the wedding of Asher & Steve recently. It was a fabulous Friday afternoon in July, the weather couldn't have been better, allowing all the guests to relax and chat outside.

I always enjoy photographing weddings at The Longlands, not only are the staff so friendly and helpful, but there are so many locations to grab great shots, there is the Marina, the patio garden, the venue itself and the nearby canal (although we didn't go down there this time).

Here are a few photos from the day, hope you like them. I will be exhibiting at the Autumn Wedding Fair on October 7th, so come and have a look at a great venue and chat about your wedding photography.

Longlands Inn Wedding of Jane & Stuart https://www.gavinhaworthphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/6/longlands-inn-wedding-of-jane-stuart I was lucky enough to be chosen to photograph the wedding of Jane and Stuart at The Longlands Inn in Carnforth, Lancashire. Jane had been a bridesmaid at a wedding I photographed a good few years ago so she knew my style of photography and manner on the day, which is always a good start.

The whole wedding was at the Longlands, which makes the photographers job easier, as we do not have to stress rushing between locations. They both had cottages to get ready in, so I headed for Jane's, and David, my second photographer went and spent some time with Stuart before the wedding service.

The wedding service was in The Lapwing Suite, and we photographed the whole service from two different angles. Jane was keen to avoid too many posed/cheesy shots so the vast majority of the time we are in the background just capturing natural shots of the bride and groom and their guests enjoying themselves throughout the day.

There certainly was plenty to photograph on the day as the bride and groom had though of everything in terms of entertaining their guests, they had a singer during the day, a gin bar, singing waiters, Stuart Michaels singing and DJ'ing in the evening, a cartoonist and photobooth, so we were kept busy all day. Here are just few snaps from the day.

Spring Wedding at Forrest Hills Lancaster https://www.gavinhaworthphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/4/spring-wedding-at-forrest-hills-lancaster On Saturday I was back at one of my favourite local venues Forrest Hills in Lancaster to photograph the wedding of Marisa and Lewis. Whilst the couple were not local the groom had gone to University in Lancaster, hence the choice of the venue.

I had already photographed the couple at Williamson's Park for an engagement shoot, where we had the most awful weather, so I was so pleased that we had perhaps the hottest day of the year so far on Saturday!

Both Marisa and Lewis got ready at Lancaster House Hotel, so we headed up there to get some wedding prep shots, before the wedding ceremony which was at The Free Methodist Church in Lancaster. This was my first time at this church, and I've got to say it was a great service, (an hour flew by) and from a photography perspective it was ideal as the lighting was perfect, sometimes in churches you really struggle and have to push your cameras to the limit due to how dark they are, but this church was fine.

As Marisa was from Glasgow the groom had arranged a surprise, a piper for them to leave the church too, and then they headed up to Forrest Hills in a vintage Rolls Royce.

As always the majority of the shots we take are natural and unposed, but I do spend about 20 minutes with the Bride and Groom going to different spots around the venue to get some great couple shots, which Forrest Hills lends itself too.

Here are a few shots from the day!

Let's Hear It For The Girls! https://www.gavinhaworthphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/3/lets-hear-it-for-the-girls "The Beast From The East" couldn't ruin Ash and Jess's Big Day at Singleton Lodge. The country had been gripped by some of the worst weather on record, so the prospect of getting some outdoor photo's for the brides didn't look good, but thankfully when Saturday came so did an upturn in the climate.

I always say to couples not to worry about the weather in terms of your wedding photographs, as the photographs will reflect your wedding, and whilst we would all prefer a fine and sunny day, a decent wedding photographer will always get great photographs whatever the weather. Like I said we got lucky on Saturday, and whilst it was still a few degrees colder than the seasonal average, we were able to get guests and the bridal party out to get photographs, which it would have been a shame if we couldn't as Singleton Lodge has such great grounds as backdrops (especially the Alpacas!).

Jess and Ash were are such a laid back couple which makes it so easy for the photographer, both sets of bridesmaids, were great fun and I think this comes across in all the photos.

Here are a just few shots from the day.

Tips on Choosing a Wedding Photographer https://www.gavinhaworthphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/2/tips-on-choosing-a-wedding-photographer How to Chооѕе the Bеѕt Wеddіng Photographer in Lancaster & The Lake District

Unlіkе thе work оf уоur other wedding vеndоrѕ (music, flоwеr arrangements, саkе), рhоtоgrарhѕ aren't thіngѕ you саn hеаr, ѕmеll, taste оr еvеn see аt fіrѕt—уоu dоn't rеаllу know whаt уоu'rе gеttіng untіl аftеr thе fасt. Thаt mеаnѕ careful rеѕеаrсh аnd ѕеlесtіvеnеѕѕ rеgаrdіng professional skills, аrtіѕtіс ѕtуlе аnd реrѕоnаl dеmеаnоr аrе еxtrа-іmроrtаnt whеn сhооѕіng your photographer.

Settle оn a Style

Bеfоrе уоu begin rеѕеаrсhіng рhоtоgrарhеrѕ, уоu'll nееd to fіrѕt dесіdе whаt type of рhоtоgrарhу ѕtуlе you рrеfеr; as that will hеlр determine which kіnd оf рhоtоgrарhеr you'll wаnt shooting уоur wedding. Dо аnу оf the fоllоwіng appeal to уоu? Styles include documentary photography Portraiture, Fine аrt, and еdgу- bоld.

Dо Yоur Hоmеwоrk

Stаrt уоur ѕеаrсh by reading rеvіеwѕ from rесеnt brides and browsing hundrеdѕ оf lосаl lіѕtіngѕ. Cаrеfullу rеvіеw роtеntіаl рhоtоgrарhеrѕ' wеbѕіtеѕ аnd blоgѕ tо check оut photos оf other wеddіngѕ they've ѕhоt, whісh wіll gіvе уоu аn idea оf their ѕtуlе. Thе design оf the wеbѕіtе mау аlѕо give уоu сluеѕ аbоut thе рhоtоgrарhеr'ѕ personality and ѕеnѕіbіlіtу. Chесk out thеіr Fасеbооk, Inѕtаgrаm and Twіttеr pages tоо, if роѕѕіblе. Is thе fееdbасk frоm clients роѕіtіvе? Hоw dоеѕ the рhоtоgrарhеr rеѕроnd? Ask to see a complete wedding, not just selected shots.

 Sеt Up Intеrvіеwѕ

Gеttіng a рhоtоgrарhеr іѕ nоt a dесіѕіоn that саn be mаdе on looks аlоnе—уоu must mееt уоur роtеntіаl рhоtоgrарhеrѕ in person. If уоu lіkе what уоu ѕее оn thеіr ѕіtеѕ—аnd thеіr fееѕ are іn уоur bаllраrk range—call to ѕее іf thеу'rе аvаіlаblе fоr уоur wеddіng dаtе. If the photographer is аlrеаdу bооkеd on your dаtе, уоu mау wаnt tо ѕее if they hаvе an associate or can rесоmmеnd аnоthеr ѕhооtеr with a similar ѕtуlе. Sеt uр іn-реrѕоn mееtіngѕ wіth three tо fіvе potential photographers whо are available on уоur wedding dаtе tо lооk аt mоrе оf thеіr work and аѕѕеѕѕ whеthеr уоur personalities mеѕh. Be рrераrеd tо talk аbоut your vеnuе, уоur wedding style and what you envision for уоur рhоtоѕ.

 Mаkе Surе Your Pеrѕоnаlіtіеѕ Mеѕh

Dоn't undеrеѕtіmаtе thе іmроrtаnсе оf liking and bonding with уоur рhоtоgrарhеr. Is thе рhоtоgrарhеr excited by уоur vіѕіоn whеn you dеѕсrіbе іt? Whеn thеу mаkе ѕuggеѕtіоnѕ, dо thеу present thеm in a сlеаr аnd rеѕресtful wау, оr аrе thеу timid? Are thеіr mаnnеrіѕmѕ оff-рuttіng? In оrdеr tо get thе bеѕt рhоtоѕ, go with a рrо who has a fіrm grаѕр оf ѕосіаl grасеѕ but is bоld еnоugh tо gо out huntіng fоr grеаt images аnd who, аbоvе all, рutѕ уоu аt ease аnd dоеѕn't іrrіtаtе you in аnу wау. Rеmеmbеr: Thеу'll bе ѕhаdоwіng your еvеrу mоvе, and thе mоrе comfortable both оf уоu аrе wіth thе рhоtоgrарhеr, thе bеttеr the рhоtоѕ wіll turn оut. Lіkеwіѕе, уоu don't want thе рhоtоgrарhеr tо оffеnd оr annoy аnу guеѕtѕ, but tо shoot thеm іn thеіr best lіght іn аn unоbtruѕіvе wау. Tо gеt the best photos, your photographer nееdѕ tо bе assertive enough tо seek оut great mоmеntѕ, cajoling еnоugh tо соаx relaxed smiles аnd nаturаl stances frоm guеѕtѕ, аnd саlm enough tо be a роѕіtіvе force. Thеу ѕhоuld ask lоtѕ оf ԛuеѕtіоnѕ аnd bе a gооd lіѕtеnеr.

Aѕk Abоut Yоur Rіghtѕ

Most соntrасtѕ stipulate thаt the рhоtоgrарhеr оwnѕ thе rіghtѕ tо аll рhоtоѕ tаkеn at thе wеddіng, еvеn thе оnеѕ оf уоu. In оthеr wоrdѕ, the рhоtоgrарhеr саn use thеm рrоmоtіоnаllу (on thеіr website оr blоg, ѕubmіt thеm fоr рublісаtіоn and even use thеm in ads). If you would prefer us not too, please advise at the time of booking.

Get thе Postproduction Details

It usually tаkеѕ аt lеаѕt a month tо get аll thоѕе рhоtо proofs bасk from уоur рhоtоgrарhеr. Why? Your рhоtоgrарhеr іѕ shooting еnоrmоuѕ rаw fіlеѕ fаr bigger thаn уоur tурісаl JPG. Shooting rаw files gіvеѕ your рhоtоgrарhеr grеаtеr аbіlіtу to соrrесt thе photo, but іt аlѕо takes a longer tіmе tо upload, рrосеѕѕ аnd edit all thоѕе fіlеѕ.

Will the proofs I ѕее be thе rеtоuсhеd vеrѕіоnѕ, or does thаt hарреn аftеr I ѕеlесt thе рhоtоѕ I want?

Last Wedding of 2017 at Ashton Memorial Lancaster https://www.gavinhaworthphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/1/last-wedding-of-2017-at-ashton-memorial-lancaster Saturday was my last wedding of 2017, at the fabulous Ashton Memorial, in Williamson's Park Lancaster. The bride and groom Chloe and Simon both live in London, so guests had travelled from afar to be there. It is always a bit of a gamble in terms of the weather having a December wedding especially in Lancaster, and we weren't let down on Saturday!

It is worth bearing in mind if you are booking a winter wedding that the earlier you have it, the better chance you will have of getting some natural light shots, as the sunsets quickly, and it does become a bit of a battle and a rush for the photographer to get them. On Saturday we just about managed it, we got a large group shot of everyone from the balcony shooting down on to the courtyard, and we took the group shots in front of the memorial.

The whole was at the Memorial including the reception, which was the first time I had experienced that, and the couple also had exclusive access to the Butterfly House for a limited time, this enabled us to get some sheltered shots of the bride and groom, before we all returned to the memorial for the reception, where we were able to capture some great candid moments.

Autumnal Wedding at The Clifton Arms, Lytham https://www.gavinhaworthphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/11/autumnal-wedding-at-the-clifton-arms-lytham I was kept busy this weekend with two weddings, which is quite unusual for this time of year, the first was in Lytham at The Clifton Arms. We were fortunate to have a glorious Autumnal afternoon, although as stupid as it sounds it was probably too bright, having to contend with shadows and squinting eyes!

It was a fabulous day and we managed to get some lovely natural shots of Jen and Nick, both in The Clifton Arms itself and on the green and promenade in front of the hotel. I worked with a second photographer David, enabling us to get shots from different angles.

I still have some availability for 2018 and taking bookings for 2019, so if you are looking for a natural wedding photographer please give me a call on 07900 550231 or email me on gavfoto@hotmail.co.uk to discuss your Big Day. #lancashireweddingphotography #lancashireweddingphotographer #cliftonarmshotel

Longlands Wedding Brochure https://www.gavinhaworthphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/10/longlands-wedding-brochure Great to see some of my wedding images used in the New Wedding Brochure produced by the Longlands Hotel in Carnforth. If you are looking for a wedding venue in the area I can definitely recommend The Longlands Hotel. I have done numerous weddings at the Hotel over the last few years, and it is great from a photography perspective as there are so many backdrops at hand as you have the Canal close by, the Marina and the Hotel itself. I've always found the staff really helpful and friendly so have a look at their fabulous new brochure http://www.gavinhaworthphotography.co.uk/longlands.pdf and of course if you are looking for a wedding photographer I'd love to hear from you gavfoto@hotmail.co.uk 07900550231

Wedding Photography North Euston Hotel, Fleetwood https://www.gavinhaworthphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/9/wedding-photography-north-euston-hotel-fleetwood I always love to photograph weddings at venues that i haven't photographed before, so I was really happy to be chosen as the wedding photographer for Tracey and Andy's wedding at The North Euston Hotel in Fleetwood Lancashire.

The Hotel is situated on the seafront overlooking Morecambe Bay, apart from being a fantastic building, there is a lovely park opposite the hotel and you can easily venture onto the seafront to get some great shots of the bride and groom.

The building is amazing, it has old fashioned feel about it, but this adds to its charm, with a great staircase and a stunning ballroom, a great place to get some stunning shots.

I've got to say the staff at The North Euston were absolutely amazing, nothing was too much trouble for them in helping us as photographers get the best shots possible for the happy couple, and i look forward to coming back to photograph another couple's wedding.

Here is a small slideshow of the wedding. If you are looking for a wedding photographer in Lancashire or the North West please get in touch 07900 550231 gavfoto@hotmail.co.uk I'm taking bookings for 2019 and still have some limited Saturdays frr for 2018 weddings.

Wedding Photography Forrest Hills, Lancaster https://www.gavinhaworthphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/9/wedding-photography-forrest-hills-lancaster I was back to the awesome Forrest Hills in Lancaster for a wedding a few weeks ago. The bride and groom got married at The Priory Church in Lancaster, before heading up to Forrest Hills.

Every time I have been to Forrest Hills this year the weather in the morning has been awful, but it has always come out in time for the photographs, which gives you amazing clouds creating some awesome pics.

I've said before that this is one of my favourite local venues as it's quirky, and gives you so many photo opportunities. Here is a slideshow from the day.

Commercial Photography - Danfloor Carpets https://www.gavinhaworthphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/9/commercial-photography---danfloor-carpets I was recently contacted by a commercial carpet manufacturer Danfloor and asked to photograph a recent installation at a Care Home in Lytham St Annes, Lancashire. I do a lot of property photography for Estate Agents, but this job was slightly different. Whilst you use all the same equipment the point of focus/composition was different, as the the carpet had to be the centre of attention. This meant getting low and using a wide aperture to ensure the carpets were in focus. here are a few shots from the shoot.

Ribby Hall Wedding of Ashleigh & Tom https://www.gavinhaworthphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/8/ribby-hall-wedding-of-ashleigh-tom I was back to Ribby Hall recently for a great day photographing Ashleigh and Tom's big day. The weather was exceptionally kind, as it had been a miserable week in this part of Lancashire.

Ribby is a great venue for wedding photography, especially when the weather is great as their are so many areas that make a great backdrop for shots. The couple were so laid back, which makes it so easy for a photographer. We covered the whole day from wedding prep through to and including the first dance. They also hired a magician Darren Robinson who I have worked with on numerous occasions, the reaction to his magic from guests is priceless and makes for some great photographs.

Here are just a few snaps from the day.

Wedding of Kirsty & Gav at The Grange Hotel https://www.gavinhaworthphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/8/wedding-of-kirsty-gav-at-the-grange-hotel I was back at one of my favourite local venues last week, The Grange Hotel, Grange Over Sands, for the wedding of Kirsty and Gav. The bride and groom had travelled from Manchester for their Big Day, as the bride had fallen in love with the hotel, when she was looking for venues, whilst her husband to be was doing a 10km run in the area.

It really is a great venue for a wedding photographer also as it not only has fantastic grounds, it has great inside spaces to, that provide a perfect backdrop for wedding photography. The weather in this part of North West England, has been really unpredictable over the past few weeks, but I have been fortunate enough to get enough outside time with my bride and grooms, and this was no exception.

We just managed to get the group shots done and a coupe of posed shots by the Pagoda before the heavens opened, but like I said The Grange Hotel has enough internal spaces to get great shots that it didn't really matter.Here are just a few shots from the day. If you are looking for a wedding photographer in the Lake District, Cumbria or Lancashire please get in touch on 07900 550231 or gavfoto@hotmail.co.uk as I'd love to speak to you.

Graduation Day https://www.gavinhaworthphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/7/graduation-day Had a great little job last week, I was contacted by a family whose daughter was graduating from Lancaster University, and they would like some photographs to remember the occasion by. So I was asked to meet them at the Great Hall Lancaster University, after the ceremony to get some shots of the "graduate" and her family.

Here are just a few of the shots that I took. If you are looking for a photographer to photograph a graduation or similar event, contact me on 07900 550231 or gavfoto@hotmail.co.uk as I guarantee it will be less expensive than you think, and you will have great memories to keep forever.

Wedding of Alex and Harry, Longlands Hotel, Carnforth https://www.gavinhaworthphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/7/wedding-of-alex-and-harry-longlands-hotel-carnforth On Saturday I had the good fortune to photograph the wedding of Alex and Harry. They were to get married at Christ Church in Carnforth before heading back to The Longlands Hotel http://www.longlandshotel.co.uk/ I've done quite a few weddings at the Longlands, and it's a great location.

Alex got ready in one of the cottages near the Marina, which was great to get some wedding prep shots, as there is plenty of room and light. The groom meanwhile was getting his "Dutch Courage" at the local Ex Serviceman Club, so I called in there for a couple of shots (photos)!

The service was at Christ Church in Carnforth, again I have done weddings here previously, and it is a lovely church, and on Saturday it was absolute fine for natural light, as it was a gorgeous outside at the time of the service.

Whilst we did take a number of group shots we got a lot of natural shots especial of the couples children, which I think are some of the best of the day.

If you are looking for a wedding photographer in Lancashire or the North West of England, that will shoot candid, documentary style as well as getting the group shots and some posed couple shots, please get in touch gavfoto@hotmail.co.uk 07900 550231 Whilst I am based in Lancashire, I am happy to travel, so if you like my style but are not in the North West, please get in touch to discuss.

Wedding of Vicky and Matt at The White Church and The Glendower Hotel https://www.gavinhaworthphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/6/wedding-of-vicky-and-matt-at-the-white-church-and-the-glendower-hotel I recently photographed a lovely wedding for a great couple at the iconic White Church in Lytham St Annes, and later at the stunning Best Western Glendower Hotel in St Annes.

The bride the previous week had done the hair for a bride whose wedding I also shot, she was really concerned about the weather, as it was quite dull and wet that week, but like I say to all brides you shouldn't worry about the weather, whilst we would all love a wonderful sunny day, a good photographer will get you you fabulous images whatever the weather, and it will reflect the day, anyway she had no need to worry as it was a gloriously sunny day, in fact we could've done with a few more clouds, as we had to be careful to avoid squints and harsh shadows.

The White Church is an amazing building http://bit.ly/2sqaMVT perfect for a backdrop for a wedding, the bride and groom were then chauffered by Dan Waller Cars https://www.facebook.com/DanWallerCars/ from the Church to King Edward VII School http://www.arnoldkeqms.com/ which was the grooms school, and again was a great backdrop for a couple of shots, before heading to Best Western Plus Glendower Hotel http://www.glendowerhotel.co.uk/ for the wedding reception. I always enjoy weddings at The Glendower as apart from it being in a great location opposite the Sand Dunes and other great spots for photographs, the hotel, which has recently been renovated is stunning, and the staff are always so helpful, which for a photographer is great, as they don't put you under pressure to rush things, they just want to ensure everything runs as the bride and groom had envisaged.

The bride loves everything Disney, and as such had a Minnie Mouse theme for her wedding, with red and black highly visible and a Mickey and Minnie wedding cake, and even her bouquet was made up with silk flowers to mimic Minnie Mouse!

Such a great wedding, now back to editing the pics!!

Wedding of Emma and Ryan at Singleton Lodge https://www.gavinhaworthphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/5/wedding-of-emma-and-ryan-at-singleton-lodge We're now right into wedding season, and I was lucky enough to be invited to photograph the wedding of Emma and Ryan at Singleton Lodge. The weather forecast didn't look great when I woke, but you have to be positive as whatever the weather you have to capture pictures that reflect the day. However we were quite lucky as we had showers and no persistent rain so we were able to work around it.

The beauty of Singleton Lodge is that it has great grounds with areas of shade, it has a huge tree (not sure what species) at the front of the hotel, which gives great cover from rain and harsh sunlight, so we were able to get shots under this when we did have some showers.

As I said Singleton Lodge has great grounds, apart from "the tree", it has a fantastic old red brick wall which I think gives an excellent backdrop, and of course it has a field of Alpacas, which are the perfect background!

Anyway here are a few shots from the Wedding Photography at Singleton Lodge. If you are looking for a wedding photographer please contact me on 07900 550231 or gavfoto@hotmail.co.uk I'm happy to travel throughout the UK...and further if asked!!

The Bride https://www.gavinhaworthphotography.co.uk/blog/2017/5/the-bride This is a photo from a recent wedding at Ribby Hall which I am just editing. I really like doing bridal prep shots, as whilst it is often quite a stressful time for the bride and the bridesmaids as a photographer, you get some time to get some great shots.

I shall put some more shots up from this wedding shortly.
