3 time BIPP North West Wedding Photographer of the Year

I will provide you with photographs which will take you back to how your day felt.

All the emotion. All the moments. All the love.

Hi, I’m Neil, a wedding photographer based in sunny Manchester in the UK. I absolutely love capturing weddings, so much so that I have photographed over 500 weddings over the past 15 years, all over the world.

However, it’s not because I love photographing dresses or flowers, it is because I love photographing people and capturing real moments, exactly how they unfold with no interference from me. Knowing that these moments will bring back memories for you of not just how your day looked, but more importantly how it felt.

I have won awards from the Masters of Wedding Photography, the British Institute of Professional Photography, ISPWP, MyWed, Wedding photography Select and many others. But for me, the greatest enjoyment will always come from capturing memories for my couples and, as a documentary wedding photographer, doing so in a way that lets you enjoy your day as if I wasn’t even there.

Wedding photography is my passion, the excitement, the moments, the emotion. And the best thing of all is that I love that I am able to share this with my couples.

To ensure I give all my couples my absolute best service, I only photograph 20 weddings per year.

When the photograph is completely natural and real, you will be transported back to how you felt in that moment every time you look at it…
