We are The Crawleys ... Liam and Bee (and Betty!)
a little bit about us!
Hey guys, congratulations on your engagement! We are multi award winning international wedding photographers Liam and Bee, The Crawleys … Biam for short. We are a husband and wife team who live in a wonky little cottage nestled within Delamere Forest in Cheshire, with our daughter Betty and a few animals thrown in to the mix. We first laid eyes on each other back in 2002 in the popular gay bar / rave cave, the G – Bar, in Liverpool at 6am in the morning! In fact, we even had the song ‘Gay Bar’ by the band Electric Six as our first dance when we got married. Everything about forest life makes us incredibly happy. Afternoon strolls exploring the forest, finding new and unexplored paths. Long lazy lunches (Bee absolutely loves cooking!) Cosying up by the log burner. Snug and relaxed would probably be the two best words to sum us up :-) Liam is the man behind the camera and Bee is tucked away in our digital darkroom working on images.
For us, being able to create amazing visual memories is a massive privilege, and we’ve been really lucky to have been part of over 600 weddings all over the world since starting out over 18 years ago, and have won stacks of awards – most recently The Wedding Industry Awards UK Wedding Photographer of The Year 2019, and again in 2020. We are also very proud to be named as one of the top 150 photographers in the world by SLR Lounge, and to be included on Junebug Weddings hot list of top 50 international destination wedding photographers – Junebug are an American wedding blog and the biggest in the world … it’s a real honour to be accredited by this mega brand. We are well known in the global wedding industry for our creative / energetic / risk taking approach to our image making. If you’re after wedding photography with a kick ass edge, we’re the people for you!
liam (aka, bobs ... don't ask!)
… loves spending time wandering the trails of Delamere Forest, has an unhealthy love of very hot baths and documentaries (the two have been known to mix on a regular basis!), had a small stint in the Royal Marines, loves a power ballad, his dyson hoover, real ale, haribos, and is a big risk taker.
bee (aka, the wediting queen!)
… is totally in love with yoga, has a small addiction to sourdough bread making, Scrabble, aromatherapy misting (how many Neom diffusers are too many?) and Mulberry bags (in equal measures!) Also very partial to a large glass of seedlip and tonic.

… loves chocolate, cake, ice-cream, riding Sheila (the dog) around the house like a pony and bear hugging Maude (the mini dog) on the sofa whilst watching back to back episodes of Peppa Pig.
