Manchester Wedding Photographer

Natural & relaxed wedding photography

Hello, I’m Ally, I am an award winning wedding photographer based in Manchester. I also cover Lancashire, the North West, the UK and anywhere on the planet. I am ranked in the top ten wedding photographers for 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 the planning 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.

After the best day of your life, what else remains? Photographs! Snapshots that spark a series of memories and emotions to come flooding back. When looking for a wedding photographer, find the person you connect with, whose images you love and whose photographs make you feel as if you’re part of the party. Have a look through my blog – these are some examples of the many memories I capture for couples.
