"I love this image from Kirstie and Tony's wedding as it's just so full of happiness and love. To me, weddings are all about the emotion and my couple's individual love stories, and it's spontaneous moments like this that I love to capture for my couples. The couple had just come out after their wedding ceremony, and their newly-wedded joy is so clear to see. I photograph weddings in mainly documentary style, and have been told that I work a little like a ninja. I photograph loved up, soulful and giggly couples, who want images that really show all the love of their wedding day."

"Manchester couple Laura and Adam were moving to Australia the week following the wedding, so they asked one thing of their wedding day: 'capture the city'. We were lucky enough to be able to take a few shots in the Air and Space Hall at the nearby Museum of Science and Industry, I love this image because it perfectly represents our style of natural moments with natural light. No set-ups, no awkward posing, just asking the couple to react naturally. And they delivered. Just as the sun dipped below that amazing window, this amazing ball of light lit up the room and we caught that tiny glimpse into their entire world. I aim to capture what's important to the couple, whether the wedding be in Manchester city centre or the Cheshire countryside, and my approach is always individual and personal."
"It was very, very difficult to come up with a favourite image from my many weddings but the reason I chose this one was because of its simplicity and timeless qualities. Producing the image in black and white enhances the romance. The image was inspired by the vintage romance movies of the 40s-50s.
"I am Frank and I am the founder of Vision Photography, valuing passion, excitement and creativity. With more than 15 years' experience in the industry, Vision Photography has won numerous awards for producing fantastic images that capture the beauty of a wedding day. With a relaxed and simple approach I will photograph your special day in a subtle and unobtrusive way by blending into the background but still documenting the moments as they unfold. From the guests and dress to the food and crazy dancing, I will make sure that I tell your story as the day progresses so that you have a beautiful memoir to reflect on."
"Even though this image was featured in Bride magazine in 2016, I still love it. Why? Because I just adore dogs and to combine this with my other passion, wedding photography, is just perfect. Secondly, I feel that this image is timeless which is what wedding photography is all about, hence my strap line "Look Back & SMILE". I hope this will inspire other couples to include their dogs at their weddings too... after all, they are family.
"My style is very natural and I seek inspiration from my clients, as I like their personality and passions to shine through in the images. I do this by listening to my couple's story to find out what is important to them, so when I’m photographing your wedding I will capture your day in a way you would like to remember it. I feel proud to have my images grace the pages of publications like Bride Magazine and feel privileged to work as a preferred photographer with of some of the most luxurious wedding venues in the North West."

"I was so excited for Emily and Shane’s wedding day. I knew they had planned lots of little personal details for their film-inspired big day and it certainly did not disappoint. Alongside a popcorn cake and a vintage red bus, this couple were totally fun. So, when Emily and Shane asked me to photograph them on their vintage bus, how could I not? My style of photography is bright, clean and I mostly shoot documentary style. During a wedding day I get creative shooting through objects and foliage as it adds an extra dimension, especially to wedding portraits. I shoot open wide for most of the day, focusing on the details. I love this particular image as I really had fun with Emily and Shane; they were really up for trying anything and I was able to get really creative with the bus interior."
