Mick Cookson Photography

Manchester Wedding Photographer

Since 2008

Award-winning wedding photography in Manchester, Cheshire, Lancashire and the Lake District.

Hello, I’m Mick – an award-winning Manchester Wedding Photographer. I have photographed nearly 400 weddings – at some of the top venues across the North West and UK, but especially in CheshireLancashire and the Lake District.

I photograph weddings with a natural style – capturing the fun, the style and the emotion your special day brings. No awkward or cheesy posing, no heart shaped group photos (sorry!) – just classic, stylish and natural wedding photography you’ll cherish for years to come. There, sales pitch over…

Featured Weddings

As a Manchester Wedding Photographer, I have been invited to be part of the special day of a lot of happy couples over the past ten years – from an intimate wedding in a Manchester restaurant with 30 guests, to a Cheshire castle with over 150, and a ‘standard’ Irish wedding in Limerick with over 200 guests.

No two weddings are ever the same, which is another reason I love my job. Here are three featured weddings from very popular wedding venues. Click the button to see a list of venues I have worked at…maybe yours is on the list?

Manchester Wedding Photographer

10 Years And Counting

In my ten years as a Manchester Wedding Photographer I have had the experience of photographing a vast range of wedding ceremonies – from Register Office & Church weddings, Humanist ceremonies, Same Sex weddings, Mixed Faith, plus Hindu and Chinese weddings…

And, at some of the best wedding venues in the North West.

I feel very lucky and privileged to be paid for doing a job I love, and, as a Manchester Wedding Photographer, being invited to be part of my clients’ special day. I have photographed Tipi Weddings, Marquee Weddings, Barn Weddings, photographed an Elopement (and been a witness too!), covered Home Weddings, plus weddings at some new and up-and-coming venues too….watch this space!

Kind Words from My Clients

“From the first time we met Mick, we knew we wanted him for our wedding and he understood exactly what we wanted. On the day of the wedding, he made both myself and Brad feel at total ease by not forcing staged photos upon us. Everything was so natural. Having had our photos back this morning, Mick really did manage to capture every amazing moment possible and we can’t thank you enough. So many people complimented us on our wedding day, and afterwards about how lovely and hard working you were.
