HEN PARTY PHOTOGRAPHY IN MANCHESTER: why not invite a photographer to your hen do?

Have you thought about hiring a photographer to join your hen party?  Jillian Hartley Wedding Photography can offer coverage of your event from as little as £100.  Split this between all of the girls and you pay next to nothing!  This is a fantastic gift for the bride-to-be, capturing lots of great memories with her favourite girls.  She will receive all the photos from the night on a personalised disc for her to keep!  Why not make a hen do photobook from your photos or have one of your favourites framed as a prezzie?

Nichola’s hens partied in style for a long weekend with a ‘onesie’ theme on the first night and a masquerade cabaret evening on the second night.  The Manchester girls headed to Brighton to celebrate Nich’s forthcoming wedding with full intentions of painting the town red.  It was a huge turnout with twenty-six ladies who know just how to party.  From champagne cocktails on the train, to mojitos in onesies, Bucks Fizz for afternoon tea to cosmopolitans in the caberet lounge, Jillian Hartley Wedding Photography was there to capture it all!

Hen party coverage extends across Greater Manchester, get in touch if you would like more information!


Hen party photography Manchester

Meet baby George! We followed his journey in photos from Mummy’s bump into the big wide world!

When my lovely friend Beth told us that she was pregnant, we were all absolutely thrilled for her!  Needless to say, I jumped at the opportunity for a photoshoot – I couldn’t wait until the bump started to show.  One afternoon, Beth and I had a good catch up with a nice cuppa, then out came the photography gear.  With a little help from some props we managed to capture the precious bump in all its glory!

Then the wait… I think I was getting as impatient as Beth waiting for baby George to enter the world!  The big day arrived in June 2012 and baby George was finally born.  He was so beautiful, I couldn’t wait to get the camera out again!  Once mum and baby were home and settled, we got a date in the diary for George’s first photoshoot.  He did not disappoint on his debut… he sat there patiently and giggled all afternoon, his big blue eyes sparkling.  Wow, what a photogenic boy… just adorable!

Pregnancy and baby bump photography shoots now available!

We spend a great deal of time and effort photographing our children as they develop from new born babies into young adults so why not start with photographs during your pregnancy?  Women spend nine months nurturing their beautiful bumps as they grow bigger and bigger.  As we all know, this is when women are said to be ‘blooming’ and look fantastic!  What could be a better opportunity for a photo shoot?  Once our babies enter into the world, we are quick to forget what was once affectionately known as ‘bump’ for nine months!  Baby bump photography shoots are a great way for mums-to-be to treasure those special moments during a woman’s pregnancy and remember how beautiful you looked!

Jillian Hartley Photography brings a fresh, contemporary approach to pregnancy photography.  The style is your choice – it can be fun and natural, or a little more glamorous and sexy!  Pregnancy photos make wonderful gifts for your other half or family members, as well as stylish framed prints for your wall.

Visit the website for more information on portrait and pregnancy photography or get in touch for more details.




Wedding guest signing frames now available!

Signing frames (sometimes known as signing mounts) are becoming increasingly popular amongst brides and grooms on their wedding day.  Signing frames are a great alternative to the more traditional wedding guest signing books.  On the wedding day, a large mount with a photograph of your choice is placed at the wedding venue for guests to sign and offer their best wishes.  This is often a photograph from the preceeding engagament photography shoot which can be incorporated into your wedding photography package.  After the wedding, the signed mount is then set in a frame of your choice and the photograph can then be exchanged for one of your favourite wedding photographs if you prefer.  The size of the mount can be custom made to depending on the number of guests at the wedding.

Jenna and Neil’s engagement photography shoot in Manchester

Here is a sneak preview of Jenna and Neil’s engagement photography shoot from yesterday.  The gorgeous couple are due to get married on June 3rd in Spain.  We took advantage of the lovely Manchester weather and managed to shoot most of the engagement photos outside in the garden.  It was a great warm up for the big day… Jenna and Neil are both really photogenic and have fun in front of the camera!  I can’t wait for the wedding day, I think the wedding photographs will be lovely and hopefully we can rely on good weather in the Costa Del Sol!
