Natural Wedding Photographer


Manchester | Lancashire | North West | UK

Hi there lovely person looking for a wedding photographer. You are planning a unique wedding true to your personality and style, ignoring tradition and celebrating the way you want to. That's the kind of wedding I thrive at and love to photograph.

My name is Andy Hirst and I live up in Lancashire with my wife Clare and dog Barney. I call myself a natural wedding photographer although you may have heard the words documentary or reportage. In a nutshell I tell stories with pictures from the perspective of a guest experiencing your wedding day. I work tirelessly, starting early and finishing late to document just how much fun was had. You wedding is an event to go down in history no matter if its a small private do or a huge celebration. My style of photography captures all the energy, emotion and the crazy.

You don't take yourself too seriously so theres no need to do any fake posing for the sake of it, just let the day flow with a smile on your face.

Although being based up in Lancashire, I would say I spend most of my time travelling around the UK to shoot weddings in many different loctaions, this means I experience many venues and especially the DIY marquee weddings with the same wonder and intrigue as you and your guests.

Have a gander at my portfolio and then get in touch to tell me what you are planning and I will send you a personalised proposal on how I would approach your wedding.


About Me


Your Experience


We just want to chill on our wedding day...

I hear you! Planning your wedding is a stressful experience, the last you want is that to continue on the day. Your wedding photographer actually has a big influence on this. That is why I work the way I do so you can have the best experience and at the end of it all an amazing set of images to remember it all.

So, you’re a bit shy, maybe have a weird Chandler Bing smile, that’s cool, I won’t make you stand and pose or do anything fake. Photographing  your wedding day from the perspective of a guest gives your wedding photographs the atmosphere to show the experience of your wedding for you to relive.

To achieve this, I work tirelessly on your wedding day, trust me you should see me the day after on the couch! I put all my energy into your wedding day, moving quickly and quietly to be in the right place at the right time, mostly going unnoticed. I like to start early and finish late to get everything from the hustle and bustle of the preparations right through to the crazy dance floor action, and I do mean crazy!

Just be yourself, that's all you have to do!
