Autumn 2018Once in a lifetime Royal Wedding photos

Danny Lawson, originally from Smithy Bridge, captured once in a lifetime images at the royal wedding in May, as he was positioned in the organ loft of St George’s Chapel.

Having worked with the Press Association for over a decade, Danny said: “My interest in photography really began to grow when I studied graphic design at Hopwood Hall College, as photography was part of the course.

“I worked for a lot of different people and businesses in Rochdale as I tried to build up my work experience.

“When I found out I was covering the wedding, I was excited to say the least.

“The position I had was very important as my role was to photograph Meghan walking down the aisle. I was around six metres high off the ground as I captured her from the organ loft.

“I definitely didn’t expect to get the picture of the couple kissing, but with the help of my zoom lens I captured it from behind.

"This image and the image of Meghan walking down the aisle are definitely my favourite pictures from the day.”
