MANCHESTER WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Award Winning Wedding Photography in Manchester
I have a real soft spot for Manchester, having lived and worked there when I was a student, when Oasis (and Blur) were topping the charts and the Boddingtons factory was still one of the biggest structures of the city skyline. So much has changed since then and the character of the city has really exploded over the past ten years or so. Still famous for raising great bands like The Smiths and the Stone Roses, Manchester also boast some of the best wedding venues in the north. If you wanted to take a look at weddngs in the posh bit further south then please check out my Cheshire Wedding Photography page.

Manchester has seen an explosion of great venues over the past few years. City centre weddings offer a lot in terms of other entertainment and accommodation for wedding guests who may be visiting for a few days. I’ve had the privilege of shooting in many venues within the city centre and surrounding areas and been lucky enough to photograph the weddings of many great couples who had planned modern, relaxed and fun weddings where the emphasis was on the party rather than stuffy old wedding traditions. Venues I’ve shot include: King Street Town House, The Place at Picadilly, Leaf on Portland Street, Manchester Town Hall, Vermillion, The Lowry, On the 7th and Great John Street Hotel.
Engagement Photography in Manchester
Many couples are opting for a pre-wedding or engagement shoot in order to get used to the camera (and me!) and to get some great images for save the date cards, signing boards and other wedding stationary. Also to mark a point on their journey together. I offer engagement shoots as part of wedding packages and as stand alone ad-ons. You can book an engagement shoot even if you haven’t booked your wedding photography yet!
Manchester offers some fantastic urban and industrial backdrops in and around the city centre, places like the Northern Quarter and Castlefield. Further out of town you’ve got the National trust properties of Styal Lodge and Quarry Bank Mill for something a little greener! North and east of Manchester you’ll find more hilly terrain with Rivington Pike providing great views and some middle earth like architecture.
