Cheshire Wedding Photographer

Hello, and welcome to Stephen McGowan Photography. My style is very relaxed as I like to document your day as it plays out, allowing you to be yourselves during the day.
I love to tell each and every story individually as every wedding is unique to the two of you, and capture all the moments through the day: laughs, cries, hugs and dancing; it’s all part of the story of your day.
Please feel free to have a browse through the website and enjoy flicking through my galleries of amazing memories as a Cheshire Wedding Photographer.

I have photographed weddings at many venues in and around the area of Cheshire including Adlington Hall, Owen House Wedding Barn, Heaton House Farm & Colshaw Hall to name a few.




Thank you for visiting my wedding photography website. I do hope you enjoy browsing the pages and my blogs showcasing my most recent Cheshire weddings.

If your wedding is outside of Cheshire, that's absolutely not a problem! I've had the pleasure of photographing weddings outside of Cheshire, along with many destination weddings taking me over Europe and beyond, and so distance really isn't an issue for me.


My style of photography is focused on telling a story of your day, therefore I strive to capture as much of the natural day as possible. Photographs with true emotion and meaning which represent your day from start to finish are the images I try to achieve. Having worked as a Cheshire wedding photographer for the past seven years, this natural and relaxed reportage style is one I have perfected.

I also love to capture natural and contemporary portraits. You can develop some amazing photographs by being yourselves without having the awkwardness or forced poses. I make sure my newlywed couples are comfortable in front of the camera and so it is this relaxed relationship which shines through in your photographs. My portraits are about the my newly married couples on their special day while illustrating the love they have for one another. Throughout the day I work unobtrusively in the background which allows it to unfold as naturally as possible.



Every wedding is unique, as is every couple. I therefore tailor my approach to represent your wedding day as best I can from start to finish. Therefore the story told from your photographs is your unique to you and your wedding.

I understand that one couple's priority photograph may be an intimate embrace with grandma and another couple's must have photo may be a stylish portrait of the two of you out on the grounds of your luxury wedding venue. Some couples want to spend a long time taking portraits and others just want natural pictures start to finish. I take the time to get to know you, and see what makes you 'click' before we meet up again on your wedding day.

I offer full day coverage as standard for all of my wedding packages. From bridal preparation through to the evening's partying, I am with you for the full day. As additionals I do also offer a second photographer as a part/full day extra. This allows for the groom preparation to be documented and also allows for a second photographer throughout the day, giving you a more complete story and picking up on extra moments which could otherwise be missed.

My main aim in wedding photography is to tell a story from beginning to end and allow you to relive your day through the photographs. I therefore feel it's important to be there from the moment you begin to get ready through until the partying at night.There's no better way to re-live your special day than by turning the pages of your fine quality wedding album and experiencing the moments time after time.
