The story of

Jane & Matt

and their tipi wedding photography

I don’t really remember where this very memorable wedding was. The sat nav brought me and my cameras to a field somewhere in Wrightington. Jane & Matt had a wonderful ceremony at St Mary’s RC Church – with the coolest priest, and then it was onto the field where the tipi stood!


Guests chilled on the hay bales, drinking cocktails and playing a few games on the outside before getting cosy on the inside for the wedding breakfast. After the speeches it was time to grab a few snaps of the bridesmaids and groomsmen – all good fun after a few martinis!

During the bridal preparations Jane told me of their first dance routine. It was amazing with lots of twirls, flicks and turns, and it didn’t disappoint! Matt pulled off the big lift perfectly and the wedding guest went wild. I love that kind of energy at a wedding!


During the day, Jane, Matt and I took ourselves away a couple of times to capture some portraits, each taking only 15 minutes or so. It always helps when you get a fab sunset and a groom who suddenly takes off through the field. What a brilliant day!

What they said…

Andy is 100% the photographer you want for your wedding day. He’s professional, personable, and calm. As a bride getting ready he put my wife at ease perfectly and reassured her and knew how to direct things. Many of our wedding party commented on how good Andy was. His body of work was so impressive and exactly the spontaneous candid style we wanted. We got all the classic once-in-a-lifetime shots as well as many, many more one off moments of our guests. Our church ceremony and tipi style reception were captured perfectly and we cannot thank him enough for his help and support. Looking back now many months on it is such an important choice to remember your day and we are thrilled with the photos we have. You won’t regret picking Andy to capture your wedding.

With many thanks to…
