LGBTQ+ Wedding Photographer Manchester
I have been working as a wedding photographer in Manchester for around 15 years and one of my main passions is shooting LGBTQ+ wedding photography.
I consider myself an experienced LGBTQ+ wedding photographer in Manchester as I have photographed gay, lesbian and trans gender weddings.
Professional Photography In Manchester
Manchester has such an amazing, vibrant LGBTQ+ community and for me it is so very important to be able to represent gay, lesbian, trans and non-binary couples with my wedding photography. I pride myself in specialising in LGBTQ+ wedding photography and love showing all expressions of love however they come.
With Manchester Pride a yearly occurrence and the Gay Village being one of the most thriving spots in Manchester you would assume that Manchester is forward thinking when it comes to representing the LGBTQ+ community.
I think in many areas Manchester is forward thinking but some parts of the wedding industry may be a bit farther behind. I have come across venues that may only refer to bridal prep room or only have literature that refers to the bride and groom.
With my wedding photography I like to ensure that my LGBTQ+ couples are represented well within the industry. I recently had a stand at the Gay wedding fair, making sure I met lots of lovely gay and lesbian couples who were planning on getting married.
I always want to show and represent love between everyone… Love is love and I celebrate love in all its forms. When I hear that couples come across prejudice within the wedding industry it upsets me so much.
Why should certain couples feel segregated or unable to express their love towards one another because they don’t fall into a traditional bride and groom package.
I have photographed the weddings of trans, gay and lesbian couples and each one is so important to me as it makes me realise how far we have come since gay weddings were finally legalised.

I feel really passionate about supporting the LGBTQ+ community with my wedding photography and am here for your wedding or celebration of love, however you choose to express it.
From intimate elopement weddings to big elaborate weddings I have experienced photographing them all and I am confident I can creatively tell your love story with compassion, honesty and feeling.
Some of my favourite weddings are elopement and intimate weddings, and often LGBTQ+ couples fall into these categories. I photographed the wedding of Cloud and Quin, a wonderful trans gender couple at the registry office in Manchester and then we explored the streets of Manchester, taking photos in some of my favourite locations in the city.
Richard and Anles’ wedding was a small elopement in the Peak District where we photographed their love in an intimate country location surrounded by fields, sheep and rolling hills. This was a great example of my LGBTQ+ wedding photography Manchester.
As a Manchester LGBTQ+ wedding photographer I pride myself in representing all members of the wonderful LGBTQ+ community.
My last LGBTQ+ wedding was the wonderful wedding of Stephen and David. Stephen has Cerebral Palsy and watching him and David show their love and get married was one of the most emotional weddings I have ever photographed.

Martha and Luci were a stunning lesbian couple who I photographed on a workshop. Their love for one another was such a joy to behold.
They were so intimate with each other and each touch and lingering kiss was just such a pleasure to photograph. Theirs is such a wonderful love story and it was a real privilege to photograph their love story.
Not all photographers feel comfortable posing and working with LGBTQ+ couples but for me I just love working with couples in the LGBTQ+ community. Photographing all kinds of couples is what keeps my wedding photography different and exciting.
I love the diversity and vibrancy of photographing LGBTQ+ weddings. Everyone is often so free and flamboyant and ready to party and have a great time. It is crazy to think that less than 10 years ago LGBTQ_ weddings were not legal in this country and now thank goodness all couples are able to marry and express their love towards each other.
We just need to make sure that in the wedding industry we are progressive and forward thinking and make sure all of our traditional ‘bride and groom’ thinking doesn’t apply anymore. We need to re-evaluate the way we talk to our couples and make sure that all the language we use doesn’t relate to ‘brides and grooms’ but can relate to every couple.
I hope that I can continue to photograph LGBTQ+ weddings in Manchester for years to come. LGBTQ+ wedding photography is truly one of my favourite parts of my business and I hope to continue photographing the weddings of all these truly wonderful and amazing couples for years to come.
