“Mick, we couldn’t have hoped or wished for anyone else to photograph our day.

We loved having you with us, your humour and professionalism was fantastic and everyone commented on how good you were.

Hello, I’m Mick – an award-winning Manchester Wedding Photographer.

I have photographed over 400 weddings at some of the top venues across the North West, especially in CheshireLancashire and the Lake District.

My clients hire me to be their photographer because they love my natural unposed style.

Ok, that’s me, but what about you? Let me guess

You’re not a fan of having your photo taken?

You don’t want to be the centre of attention all day?

Heart-shaped group photos fill you with dread? (Me too)

And…you don’t want to be away from your guests for ages, like some photo shoot?

Thought so! So here’s what I offer…

Wedding photography with a natural unposed style – photography from ‘the shop floor’ so to speak. I capture your wedding day like I’m that extra guest, capturing the fun, and the emotion your special day brings. All live and unposed, but with a few minutes set aside for a few family groups and some natural portraits of you both. Fuss-free unobtrusive wedding coverage, just how you want it.

Why not have a look at my Galleries and see if my style matches yours?

Thanks for dropping in!
