🎄Welcome to Friends of King's virtual market 2022🎄

The festive season is here! To celebrate we have once again developed our online virtual market to give you the opportunity to support local businesses this Christmas. Grab a cup or glass of something and scroll through our advertisers - all have links directly through to their businesses for you to see more of their work.

All businesses have paid a modest fee to be featured, so please let them know you found them here! We would also be grateful if you could share  this website with friends and family to help them shop locally too.

We are very grateful to all our advertisers for their support- and in particular to our main sponsors:  CSG Automotive, Kraken Travel, Cottage Street Garage, The Old Apothecary Shop, Digital Next and Husse Cheshire East. You can find out more about their businesses by following the click links below.

Wishing you all the best for the Christmas season and thank you for your support.

I’m a lifestyle family and pet portrait photographer based in Lymm, near Warrington, in Cheshire. I’m often asked what ‘lifestyle portraits’ are and why are they different from studio family portraits.  Lifestyle portraits capture your way of life, your style, your tastes and your values. For me, lifestyle portrait photography is also about photographing in natural light, in real locations and capturing who you really are. Most importantly it is ‘your story – perfectly told’.
