There are so many different things to consider when choosing your North West wedding photographer. No two photographers will have the same approach and all will offer their own unique service and style. Some will adopt a photojournalistic or reportage documentary approach for most of your day, so you can look back and remember just how incredible your day actually was in addition to the more traditional couples, bridesmaids and family group shots.
A good wedding photographer will be unobtrusive and will capture the day in a relaxed and informal way from the 'getting ready' stage right through to the first dance and well into the evening.
You want to remember your wedding day forever so it's worth choosing a photographer you are comfortable with and will record your day in the best possible way.
Here’s some great wedding photographers in the North West from places like Manchester, Preston, Lancashire and the Lake District, whom you might want to get in touch with...

Rachael de la Mare is supporting Hospice at Home’s 25th Anniversary Raffle.
Rachael de la Mare, a wedding photographer based in Penrith, Cumbria, is supporting Hospice at Home's 25th Anniversary Raffle.
Rachael tells us: "When I think of wedding days, the first word that comes to mind is love. It sounds a little trite, but it's 100 per cent true, and it extends beyond the couple as weddings are a celebration of family and friends. For me, family is a massive part of what I love to capture in my work, and it's one of the reasons I'm so pleased to be supporting Hospice at Home's 25th Anniversary Raffle. I've had the pleasure of working with Hospice at Home for a number of years – from promotional films and photography to helping to sell sunflowers at Kendal Calling, and I'm always amazed at the wonderful work they do. A sitting voucher and framed print will be one of the prizes in the raffle, which will run until the 24th August, 2022."

David Allbutt Photography tells us why being a photographer and celebrant is a successful combination
David Allbutt Photography tells us why being a photographer and celebrant is a successful combination and one you should not miss out on.
"Photography is my passion in life," says David. "It's my full-time work, and I never stop learning or trying new techniques. So what does a qualified celebrant bring to your wedding day photography experience? I worked in the education sector and publicly spoke for many years. I decided to set up my photography business because of my love of working with people and families. I thrived on the excitement of busy events and the challenge of capturing those key moments. The celebrant decision came quite easily to me, and I gained my Celebrant and Public Speaking Diploma (SQA)."

How to capture stunning pictures whatever the weather
Wet weather doesn't have to ruin your day. There are usually breaks in the rain, so you can go outside to take some photographs. The lighting can make for some spectacular imagery since everything is glistening and saturated with colour. Grey skies and a break in the clouds can create dynamic natural backdrops, and where there's rain, there are often rainbows too! Sheltered areas such as doorways, arches, and trees are good places if you want to remain drier and avoid harsh winds. If you're feeling brave, it's worth grabbing an umbrella and some wellies and embracing the elements!
