Hi, I’m Melanie
I’m a wedding photographer based in Rawtenstall, Lancashire and love working with fun, relaxed couples. I’ve shot weddings across Lancashire, Manchester, Cheshire and Yorkshire (so far…) and my images have been featured in wedding magazines and blogs.
I’m a huge music fan, keep the radio tuned into 6 Music and go to gigs whenever I can. I love quirky independent films but my guilty pleasure is a good old Hammer House of Horror. Give me a vintage frock instead of jeans…..I’m also mum to mini ruffians Fritz & Edith, other half to Paul and own a scruffy Patterdale terrier called Eric. Oh, and I can’t walk past a charity shop without going in to hunt for “treasure”.
And you? You’re laid back, creatively minded and laugh….a lot! You want to do your wedding your own unique way, not how people say you should. Your big day is going to be relaxed, fun and reflect your personal style. You want a photographer who will fit in with you & your guests (and appreciate all the little details and carefully curated playlist). You really care about photography and believe it’s worth investing in amazing memories to cherish forever.
Sound good so far? Great… put your feet up and have a wander around the gallery on my Weddings page. After that, take a look at my blog for more wedding goodness.
