Welcome to Michael Townsend Photography!

Your wedding day is full of real, precious moments as you start the new chapter of your love story. I’m there to capture those very moments to be cherished forever.

Relaxed and calm on what is often a busy day, I’m happily snapping away the day in an unobtrusive, seamless manner, so you can enjoy every bit of your fabulous wedding day while I do what I do best – wedding photography that brings the smiles for years to come!

I take the time to learn more about your day, what your own ideas are, the venue and then I get to work, documenting those charming details that collectively tell the story of your day in the way that best represents you as a couple. I’m easy-going and have nothing but your best interests in mind, so I’m happy to answer all your questions about your wedding photography to help you feel at ease about your big day.

As a wedding photographer in Manchester, I cover weddings in the North West, including Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Lancashire and beyond. Comfortable in any setting, at big weddings to more intimate ones, indoors and outdoors, I approach every wedding with the same professionalism and fun, relaxed manner.
