I’m Toni, a full time, professional wedding photographer based in sunny Lancashire. I love my house, it’s the perfect spot in the rolling hills of the Ribble Valley countryside. It’s also got a log burner which makes it so cosy in winter!
I’m not ‘just’ a photographer. I’m a people watcher. Every couples wedding is a blank canvas for me to tell your unique love story. Weddings are about you and the people you are sharing this incredible day with. I want you to see me as a friend. Gently blending in to capture the big moments but also the acute ones. That way I can tell the complete story of your day with a selection of photographs that make you feel every emotion every single time you look at them!
I don’t under estimate that I have the most amazing job. Sometimes I almost feel guilty saying it. Doing something that I absolutely love makes me feel incredibly lucky every day. My job is to document my couples having the most amazing wedding day. I want you to look back in 5 years, 10 years and 50 years and be taken back into that exact moment where you laughed, cried or even had a little something in your eye. I have photographed weddings all over the UK as well as some amazing destination weddings worldwide, including Italy, France, Spain and the USA.
How did I become a wedding photographer is possibly the question I get asked the most. The answer; I’ve always loved photo’s. The really old ones with the crinkled edges that your Great Aunty pulls out on a rainy day. I mainly enjoy the emotional attachment and the stories they carry. I think that combined with my addiction to polaroids from a young age lead to the inevitable question that most keen photo takers get asked. To photograph a friends wedding. I remember Bryony and Craig’s big day well. I had the best experience EVER, whilst working! The adrenaline was unbelievable and I can honestly say I’ve been hooked on weddings ever since.
I’ve photographed some incredible life experiences both for myself personally and professionally. I photographed my own Grandad’s funeral. That does sound strange but the longer story is that he always wanted to ride on a Harley-Davidson. Unfortunately that dream didn’t come true so we arranged for him to have a Harley-Davidson hurst. At the time I didn’t think anything of it but now I treasure those photographs as I know he will be laughing to himself up there somewhere. I also documented the birth of my best friends baby a year later. Another incredibly memorable moment in time. I can honestly say all my experience with my work has increased the value I hold within photographs. They mean so much, they become endless treasures.

- I’m not a fan of heights but yet I seem to find myself on rooftops taking group photographs at weddings.
- When my hair gets dyed red I feel like it gives me new super powers.

- I’m addicted to diet coke and have a love hate relationship with Crossfit.
- My party trick is the worm and lifting 18 stone men – Not at the same time.
- The only thing I don’t like is beetroot – It still tastes like the earth!
