Manchester offers rustic wedding venues for every type of couple, from Five Four Studios, a photo studio on the edge of the city centre to Victoria Baths, a repurposed Victorian swimming pool.

So you’re looking for an Alternative Manchester Wedding Photographer?

I’m an Alternative Manchester Wedding Photographer, until recently i was based in Manchester for 20 years, I’m still in the north and travel across the UK and internationally to capture alternative couples wedding days. As a Manchester Wedding Photographer I’ve covered some incredible venues, including Portico Library, Ducie Street Warehouse, Manchester Art Gallery, ABC Rooftop, The Albert Hall and Victoria Baths to name a few.

I love working with Manchester couples, the options of venues are endless and every wedding seems to have a completely different style and vibe. Any opportunity to shoot fun, individual couples in and around Ancoats, Didsbury & Castlefield and you’ve got me hooked!

Which Manchester Wedding Venue?

Manchester couples tends to be pretty relaxed about their days, often going for do it yourself venues or something more rustic. Whether you find your space at Five Four Studios on the end of Salford, or pick something with Northern Quarter vibes like Ducie Street Warehouse, you’re always going to get incredible street photography shots during your portraits, the old cobbled streets, graffiti and epic doors make for a sick backdrop.

Another corker of a venue is the Albert Hall, during the summer the light floods in through the stained glass windows and its right in the centre of the city – amazing for evening portraits. ABC Rooftop is one of the latest venues in the city and it does not disappoint for sunset views in the evening.
