Manchester Wedding Photographer

Natural & relaxed wedding photography

Hello, I’m Ally, I am an award-winning wedding photographer based in Manchester. I also cover the North West, the UK, and anywhere on the planet. I am ranked in the top ten wedding photographers in the U.K. and Ireland by Masters Of Wedding Photography. My photography style is mainly documentary, which means I like to capture your wedding in a totally natural way. I work as unobtrusively as possible, blending in the background and creatively capturing those moments as they unfold throughout the day. Real smiles, Real laughter, Real emotion!

I tend not to follow any photography trends that come and go. I want your images to be timeless, so in years to come, when you and your family are looking through your wedding photos, those images will still look as special then as they do today. I approach weddings in a different way than a traditional style of wedding photography. I love to look out for those quirky moments, those random fun moments that make your wedding unique.

Recently engaged, or just started planning the wedding process?

You’re about to embark on a wonderful whirlwind journey, so congratulations to you both. For me, wedding photography is all about people. My passion lies in capturing the most beautiful, natural images of your wedding day that you can enjoy for a lifetime. When people say that the day will pass in a blur, they’re not wrong. That’s why you need a photographer that will capture all those moments that tell your story, and this is exactly what I strive to achieve at every wedding I photograph.

Meet Ally


Wedding blog

We booked Ally on recommendation from a friend and we’re so glad we did! From start to finish he was an utter professional staying true to his style of natural shots but still making time for family group photos. He took absolutely outstanding bride and groom photos, and his sense of humour and laid back attitude put us both at ease.

100% would recommend Ally to anyone wanting a wedding photographer.
You are a very talented photographer, thank you so much <3

When it came to our wedding photos we wanted natural, relaxed photos that captured every moment and emotion of the day, Ally delivered exactly that and it is clear how much passion, talent and effort has gone into every single photo!

Not only is Ally amazing at what he does but it was an absolute pleasure to have him there throughout the day. Ally is a top guy, he made us feel totally at ease and so many of our guests commented on how lovely he was! We can’t thank Ally enough for capturing such special memories that we will treasure forever!”
