Manchester Wedding Photography

As a Manchester wedding photographer, I have photographed hundreds of weddings across the county, from weddings at Manchester Town Hall through to vintage weddings at the Great John Street Hotel. I always try to make sure that my clients feel relaxed and at ease on their wedding day, having worked with hundreds of brides and grooms over the last ten years and having been a groom myself I understand that worrying about your wedding photographs is the last thing you want to be thinking about on the big day!

I became a professional wedding photographer after struggling to find the high standards of service and quality of photography I wanted for my wedding. Realising that my wife and I couldn't be the only couple in the North West who had struggled to find the right photographer I decided to take what was a passion and turn it into my full-time profession. Ten years later and with not a single regret Steven Bailey Photography is now one of Manchester’s leading Wedding photography brands. Having featured in Vogue and many other publications across Manchester and the North West. What started as a passion has grown and grown and we now work with couples across Greater Manchester delivering professional photography.

I provide a relaxed and natural style of wedding photography across Manchester. Making sure people feel comfortable in front of the camera is a skill, and this is what makes me different to other photographers. I have spent the last 10 years working hard to make sure that I deliver the same high quality wedding photography to newlyweds across Manchester, from the moment I arrive at the wedding to the last shot of the night. I normally carry a range of cameras and lenses to each wedding as being able to photograph in a range of lighting and weather conditions can be quite handy with the famous British weather.

We all hope that our weddings will go according to plan but in the unlikely event of rain, a wedding car breaking down or even dress tear, (yes I have seen all of these happen!) having someone on your team can be a life saver. From safety pins to umbrella’s I’ve seen it all so you sit back take the weight off and enjoy what is going to be one of the most incredible day’s in your life.

If you're looking for a Wedding Photographer in Manchester, who you can trust, rely upon and will be there to support you throughout the big day, then I hope you feel that you are in the right place. My pricing starts from £850 for shorter wedding ceremonies, but because every wedding is unique i have put together some packages, but of course bespoke packages are always available. If you are interested in discussing your wedding or would like to find out more about my photography services, then please feel free to visit my contact page and book a consultation to discuss your marriage today.



“If you want a wedding photographer this is honestly the only person for the job”


Mr & Mrs Mitchell 1934-Edit-2.jpg


I fell in love with photography in New York. The hobby very soon became a passion, and the evolved into my full time job - I hate to use the word Job because I love what I do, it doesn’t feel like work!

When it was my time to get married, we really struggled in finding a photographer who didn’t feel intrusive, overbearing or just not right for the relaxed, natural day we wanted. This created a spark inside of me and pushed me to where I am now. I work full time as a photographer, specialising in people - this means I photograph lots of weddings, kids, corporate events and news events. I believe in flexibility and have a can do attitude. I love a really good challenge and excel at making people relaxed in front of the camera - I understand, I hate having my picture taken too!!

Over 10 years on, I now can say, I still love my work, I get to photograph the most amazing days and situations and I am still very happily married!
