Winter Weddings

Manchester Wedding Photographer Mick Cookson

Planning a Winter wedding? I have over 300 weddings’ experience, in every season. I specialise in Winter weddings; the warm dark intimacy of your venue, contrasted with the crisp winter air, makes for some fantastic documentary and the more formal images.

One of my most popular venues for winter is Manchester Town Hall – which, throughout the year also remains one of my top three wedding venues to work at. As a Winter Weddings Manchester photographer, the Town Hall is a magical venue to work at. I love the whole atmosphere of the venue, and that I photograph it in a different way on each visit.

Peckforton Castle is another, splendid winter wedding venue – especially in the snow! But winter weddings aren’t always about larger wedding venues. Some of the best weddings I have ever had the privilige of photographing have been smaller, more intimate venues, like the very exclusive The Samling in the Lake District…

Whatever the Lake District weather can throw at us, there is always the way. Even if we have literally only three minutes and one umbrella to get that shot on the jetty…

Whether you’re planning a country hall, or city centre location for your winter wedding, you can rest assured that you’ll be in good hands. Why not get in touch to discuss options for your winter wedding? I sometiomes have really good last-minute offers for certain winter dates…if you don’t ask, you don’t get as my Grandma used to tell me 😉


I try to avoid using flashguns all day, ruining the atmosphere – no, I tend to work unobtrusively using available light where possible. But…I do have a few lights I bring along to play with if you’re looking for something a little more ‘Hollywood’. 😉 But, please – have a browse and see for yourself. It would be good to hear from you too…
