Stephen McGowan Photography: Manchester Wedding Photographer

Manchester Wedding Photographer

Stephen McGowan Wedding Photography is a Manchester based Wedding Photographer Team covering the most elite wedding venues , Manchester and the North West has to offer.


Creative Wedding Photography

A fusion of reportage, documentary, creative, fine art and alternative photography means I'm always looking to push the boundaries with my wedding photography. I enjoy being creative with portraits giving modern twists on timeless styles of wedding photography.


Documenting your day is my number one love. The day will fly by and will be over before you know it. We feel that it is important to document your story - those laughs, smiles, kisses, holding hands, chatting guests, a little tipple, speeches (always amusing!) - with reportage photography all of this is captured throughout your day giving you timeless memories of those forgettable moments

 Groom Jumping over Bride in Playing Field


I'm Stephen, a Manchester based wedding photographer available for working throughout the UK, North West and the world.

I'm committed to giving you stunning wedding photographs that you will absolutely love whilst being subtle and unobtrusive on your wedding day.
Your day should be as fun and relaxed as possible - therefore I quietly work in the background allowing you to enjoy your special day.
I'll capture the moments throughout the day as they happen with very little posing involved.
I want to be able to tell your story of the day as it happened through moments captured in photographs.

 Bride and Groom celebrating at top table


You will be presented with beautiful, timeless photographs that will be cherished forever. I work discreetly during the day capturing the moments happening around me; it's these real moments between family and friends which makes your day so special. I work to capture these moments whilst providing a unintrusive and professional service where the photography does not get in the way of your wedding.
I love unscripted, natural photography; nothing contrived, cheesy and ultimately awkward: your mum wiping away a tear at the top of the aisle, the big cheers when you're at the top table, the hugs and kisses shared throughout the day. That's what I live for.

 Destination Wedding of Bride and Groom at Ceremony


It's a simple word; LOVE. Four letters put together combines to something profound. I want to give you photographs you will LOVE forever, therefore standing the test of time and that will always be a pleasure to view. I've worked at some of the most beautiful wedding venues in Manchester and have been humbled to receive such great feedback from my happy couples.

It is my job therefore to deliver images of the highest quality from moments captured throughout your wedding day; whether it be in a hotel, field, barn or on a beach abroad I will be photographing you every step of the way.


“Very professional - Probably the best supplier decision made throughout the wedding process. Stephen's attitude and friendly manner made us at ease throughOUT the day which has been captured in our lovely photographs”
