Manchester Wedding Photographer

Award-winning wedding photography in Cheshire, Manchester and Lancashire


Hello and thanks for dropping in. I’m Mick, a full-time Manchester Wedding Photographer, and I get to photograph weddings at some of the top venues across the North West – from Cheshire, throughout Lancashire and the Lake District...and often beyond.

I photograph weddings naturally and with minimal intervention – capturing the fun and the emotion your special day brings. No forced, stiff or cheesy poses, just stylish documentary wedding photography you’ll cherish for years to come. 90% of everything you see on my website is live and unstaged. See what I mean HERE

If you’re looking for a Manchester Wedding Photographer, why not get in touch and see more of my work?

I’m a full-time professional Manchester Wedding Photographer with bases in Manchester and Lancashire, so I get to cover Cheshire, Lancashire and the Lake District. My background is in Film and TV – directing & producing TV commercials; sometimes shooting them too. My clients hire me because they want natural story telling of their wedding day. They don’t really like being photographed, don’t want to be the centre of attention all day, and don’t want their day becoming a photo shoot. Sound like you?

My wedding images have a definite film-like quality to them, and I spend a lot of time making sure they look their very best. Why not have a look at my folio and see if my style suits you?

You may have a specific venue in mind….click here to see if I’ve photographed at yours before.

Claire & Chris at Dunham Massey

It’s always nice to get comments like these from my clients. It means a lot to me that my work is appreciated and I’m doing something right. But I never rest on my laurels and constantly try to improve my all-round professional service – including both before and after the wedding. I tend to get quite a few referrals from previous clients too, and it’s great to see familiar faces at new weddings in Cheshire, Manchester and Lancashire.

I also get to work with some of the finest wedding suppliers in the North West too. If you’re looking for the very best for your wedding, I can thoroughly recommend these lovely people HERE
