Welcome to Pixies in the Cellar
Award Winning Manchester Wedding Photographers
We’re Peter and Sara, both Manchester wedding photographers, regularly covering weddings in the North West and the rest of the UK.
We’ll photograph your wedding as it happens, naturally. This, together with a short and fun portrait session, no awkward posing, no forced smiling at the camera, just the two of you, simply being yourselves and having a little time-out before heading back to enjoy your wedding party. These portraits will reflect who you are in the environment of your wedding venue. We don’t adhere ourselves to any particular genre or photographic style like documentary, portraiture or traditional, we’ll photograph your wedding in our unique way, a style that personifies photo journalism, environmental portraiture and only the very essential elements of traditional wedding photography.
Our aim is to deliver the best timeless wedding photography that will always look as fresh as when captured, achieved through our sense of timing, control of light, composition and natural image enhancement in post-production. We’ve photographed hundreds of weddings over the past few years, so rest assured you’re photography will be great no matter what the weather or season.
Most weddings we shoot are in and around Manchester, Cheshire and the North West of the UK, but we do like to venture further afield, from Scotland to London and even a French destination wedding in 2014. So if you like our style and approach to wedding photography, get in touch wherever in the world you plan to marry. We’ve also shot a number of Asian weddings, so if you’re looking for an Asian wedding photographer do drop us a line – we do love a bit of colour and sparkle!
We’re very proud to be members of Best of Wedding Photography, Best of British Weddings, Fearless Photographers and one of twenty English wedding photographers to have been invited to join the prestigious Junebug Weddings. We’ve also gained several ‘Wedding Photography Select Awards’, recently been featured in Your Manchester Wedding Magazine and north-west regional finalists in the 2015 Wedding Industry Awards.
We’re available to photograph weddings all over the UK and have worked at many varied venues. But as Manchester wedding photographers we’re particularly suited to Cheshire, Lancashire, Yorkshire and Derbyshire Peak District weddings. Please get in touch for our current wedding photography availability together with our complete price brochure and album options.
Do have a good mooch around our site and our blog to see what we’ve been up to :)

We’d been looking forward to Zoe and Claudia’s wedding for sometime, as it would be our first gay wedding ceremony since same sex marriage became official :) Good to hear them becoming ‘wife and wife’, as opposed to the more formal ‘civil partners’ as it was before :) Coincidentally Lorraine and Liz who got wed last… Read more »

A stunning summer’s day outdoor wedding ceremony at Capesthorne Hall, Cheshire Peter and Sofia, just squeezed in at the end of the year, living in Hong Kong made it quite tricky to meet up, but we managed two meetings in two days, just a month before their big day!!!

Our first truly International Wedding on foreign shores, a French Wedding, not so far, a quick flight to Bergerac and we were only a short drive from the amazingly rustic French location of Domaine des Farguettes.
