    Iris Dares Designs

    At Iris Dares we are passionate about girls being girls. That being feminine does not mean you are not powerful, clever and capable.

    We want girls to dress for THEM, to be fabulous for the wedding,  the party - or just a trip to the supermarket. Affordably!

    Our designs are all selected with comfort and style in mind; we are Mums ourselves and know all too well the pain of trying to find fabulous girls' fashion which your kids actually want to wear!

        Jo Bishop Photography

        Hi I’m Jo, I have been capturing weddings, family occasions and little people for 5 years so far, what began as a hobby has grown into something amazing. I am based in Bolton but have travelled all over to accommodate my clients.

        With a background in policing and child protection I decided 12 years in that career was enough, so took a leap of faith in my art, far more fulfilling and definitely safer, I only have to dodge cake and toddler tantrums on a rough day now!

        I have a custom built studio and cover everything from new born, branding, family, occasion and weddings. I love my work and I believe it shows!
