Photography Style

Reportage / Documentary
Full Description
Located on beautiful Saddleworth Moor, on the edges of Greater Manchester, I've been lucky enough to work as a documentary wedding photographer for over ten years now. My aim is simple, to provide wedding photography that you, your friends and family will love for years to come. I photograph weddings as they happen, but throwing in a little of my own creative style. Whilst some people will always want family group photos (and I'm happy to provide them) my focus is on those genuine, unposed moments that are part of every wedding day. I look to blend in to the background and let you enjoy your day as it happens. Most weddings I shoot are around Greater Manchester, and the surrounding counties of Cheshire, Lancashire, West Yorkshire and the Peak District. I've also covered weddings at venues further afield including Ireland, Cyprus, the United States and Nepal! Come and have a look at my site to see what I’ve been up to…

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Matthew
Wilkinson Photography have covered over 100 weddings all over the North West, the UK and abroad. My style is to blend in to the background and capture the real emotion and fun of your wedding day. I work in a documentary/reportage style meaning I'll be looking to capture the day as a whole, capturing those key moments, but also looking for the little details that make up the day as a whole.
