Manchester Wedding Photographer – Johnboy Wilson bio picture
  • HIYA!

    Welcome to the website! So I guess if you're reading this then you may well be getting married and looking for a photographer right? You're in the right place so have a scroll down this page to have a look through some of my latest work and get a feel for the way I shoot weddings.

    I try not to get in the way and try to capture the atmosphere of your wedding so that your photos will take you back to that day and invoke memories beyond what you see in front of you. If you don't want to pose for the camera that's cool, if you want to do a little bit of posing then we can do that too or if you want to pose a lot then we can go to town! It's your day so it's up to you, I'd like to come along for the ride with you.

Gibbon Bridge Wedding Photography // Sam & Gareth // One Frame

I was at Gibbon Bridge near Preston on Thursday for Sam and Gareth’s wedding.  Gibbon Bridge is a great venue but the high walled garden means it is impossible to get a good sunset shot without leaving the venue.  We piled into my incredible messy car and went to find a good spot, we found one straight away and got some shots but almost immediately the sun dropped behind the hill in the distance.  we got back in the car and drove towards the sun not knowing whether we would be able to catch the sun.  We flew around the narrow country lanes and finally came over the crest of the hill and in front of us was an amazing sunset.  A quick climb into a field full of sheep and I asked Sam and Gareth to walk towards the sun holding hands, simple but effective…

Taitlands Wedding Photography // Emily & Tom

taitlands-wedding-546

Taitlands is a great wedding venue for photography, it has beautiful grounds, amazing light and the interior is amazing.  Tom and Emily are big fans of the great outdoors and this was the perfect choice for them with idyllic countryside sprawling out all around the venue.  I’ve known Tom for a few years, he’s a good mate of my good mate and we’ve had some top nights out together so it was an honour to photograph his and Emily’s wedding.  And our mutual friend played a blinding set as the DJ, the highlight of the night seeing the whole wedding party raving to The Prodigy’s Out of Space.  Hopefully I’ll go back to Taitlands as a wedding photographer again one day, it’s a brilliant venue.  Congratulations Tom and Emily, here’s a brief look at what happened on their wedding day…

The Midland Hotel Wedding Photographer Manchester // Alison & Daryl

6R6A5372

This was my first time as a Midland Hotel wedding photographer.  I’ve photographed wedding just down the road at Great John Street and the Radisson Edwardian but finally I got the chance at wedding photography at The Midland, arguably Manchester’s most impressive hotel.  Last year I shot Alison’s cousin Jenny’s wedding at Thornton Manor so I already knew a lot of the family which made it even better.  You might remember their practice shoot in Castlefield which I posted a couple of months ago, I knew it would be a great wedding and it really was.  The Midland Hotel is in the heart of Manchester city centre so it was perfect for some urban wedding photography when we got a break in the rain after the speeches.  And it was also my first time shooting ping pong, there was no reason for this other than there was a ping pong table in a cool looking room, it reminded me of film The Grand Budapest Hotel, possible my favourite film of this year.  It was a great wedding and I’m really happy with the photos, congratulations Alison and Daryl.

Great John Street Hotel Wedding Photographer // Olivia & James

great-john-street-341

Great John Street Hotel weddings are probably my favourite Manchester weddings!  I’ve shot here so many times, it’s like a second home and I never grow tired of the place.  Olivia and James had a fantastic wedding with so many personal touches it was unlike any other wedding I’ve shot there, from James’ groom kit in the morning to the vintage typewriter and photobooth in the evening, it was a class wedding.  Here’s what happened…
