Manchester Wedding Photographer - Natural Documentary and Fine Art


Welcome to Pixies in the Cellar, Manchester Wedding Photographer

We’re Peter and Sara, professional Manchester wedding photographer. Based just outside this stunning city, on the borders of four major counties which have some of the UK’s best wedding venues. Everywhere we go we find great opportunities for our unique blend of natural and fine art wedding photography. We’re more than happy to travel any distance to shoot your wedding, we like nothing more than a little jaunt to places new and exciting!

For wedding photography Manchester and beyond check out our wedding venues page for a sample of some of the amazing locations we’ve had the pleasure of photographing weddings at throughout the years. Whatever your venue there’ll be some great photo opportunities, we love every kind of venue from bold city-centre architecture to rustic-vintage weddings, country shabby-chic and everything in between.

“…that wedding is one of the most amazing I’ve seen all year. From the magnificent buildings to the tiniest details, every image is out of this world.”

Our Style

Natural documentary style photographic coverage kicks off the day with bridal preparation, capturing those important details, anticipation and excitement of the big day ahead. Throughout your day we’ll unobtrusively record your day through great distinctive photography. We’ll slot in a short non-posed portrait session of just the two of you at a natural break in the day, making sure you have plenty of time to enjoy your own party. Our photographic coverage culminates shortly after your first dance, just long enough to capture some atmospheric dancing! We like to capture the essence of you, the sense of occasion and history that is your day with all your friends and family having a great time.

Two wedding photographers are perfect for full coverage, you get more angles and situations captured, not forgetting being in two places at the same time. Our wedding photography is natural documentary or reportage style coupled with our fine art style to make your bridal portrait session unique. And it’s all great fun too, especially after the odd glass of bubbly (that’s for you not us!)

Our wedding photography is featured on some of the countries best wedding blogs. We’ve achieved membership to Best of Wedding Photography, Best of British Weddings, Fearless Photographers and Junebug Weddings. Also achieving several ‘Wedding Photography Select Awards’ and have recently been featured in Your Manchester Wedding Magazine.

Please get in touch to meet up at our informal Greater Manchester cellar studio or at your home to look through a selection of complete weddings and our album selection - Folio, Jorgensen and Graphistudio wedding albums – quite possibly the best in presentation for your wedding photography.

See you soon and happy wedding planning!
