From traditional, to quirky and alternative, to hidden gems you might have never considered, this exciting and creative northern city has an incredible selection of brilliant wedding venues, not to mention super cool photo locations. Having worked and socialised in Manchester for over ten years, I have an excellent knowledge of venues both in the city centre and further afield, as well as all the low down on locations for amazing photographs! As a documentary photographer, I love to capture the true vibe of a location in my wedding photography and Manchester never fails to provide a brilliantly unique and creative urban backdrop for epic wedding photographs.

My style and approach

My approach to weddings is to capture authentic, real moments as they happen. My main focus as your wedding photographer is the people and relationships, capturing special moments between you, your friends and family during your wedding day. I’m always on the look out for the laughs, the hugs, the kisses and the private moments that no-one else sees! You might find me hiding behind doors, crouched in corners or photographing through windows to get that perfect shot - I have been called a ‘ninja photographer’ on more than one occasion!

Creating a meaningful connection with you and your loved ones is hugely important in creating beautiful storytelling images, and I always aim to feel more like a friend and supporter than a supplier.


My unique style will provide you with beautiful wedding photographs that preserve the excitement, emotions and memories of your wedding day, and through my unobtrusive style, I will capture the story of your day naturally as it unfolds, leaving you with fun, relaxed and beautiful images that you will treasure forever.
