Cheshire is one of the most beautiful areas in the UK. Every wedding venue has unique aspects that allow for exceptional wedding photography. Cheshire wedding photography allows me to explore my unique style. I blend documentary and contemporary photography to provide my bride and groom with many different shots that are both natural and spontaneous. In England, every county has unique characteristics, and Cheshire is no different.
Your wedding day is one you will remember for the rest of your life. You can't just choose a Cheshire wedding photographer and hope for the best. Do your research first. My name is David Conway, and I love what I do. I can be very creative and love to try new shots that will capture the essence of your special day. Wedding photography isn't the same as portrait photography. A photographer must have a passion for capturing emotions and special moments.
If you have looked at my gallery or read my blog, you know I am easygoing and absolutely love what I do. You want a creative wedding photographer with exceptional storytelling skills to capture the excitement you will experience during your wedding day. I take pride in being able to participate in a day that holds so much importance in your life. It is my honour and pleasure to tell the story of your journey that leads up to your wedding.
I have won many wedding industry awards, including The Guild of Photographers 2021 International Wedding Photographer of the Year Award and The Guild of Photographers 2021 Wedding Image of the Year Award. While these awards are irreplaceable to me, my greatest joy comes from seeing the faces of newlyweds who are viewing their wedding photographs for the first time.
Cheshire is located in North West England and is full of small villages and scenic views from almost every angle. Chester and Manchester, for example, are full of historical buildings that are ideal for elopement weddings or engagement photos. Throughout Europe, the UK is known for its stunning countryside views, quaint villages, and historical estates and manor houses. From North Wales to Lancashire, I love finding new wedding venues to explore.
With my documentary style of photography, I can capture the full range of emotions a couple can experience on their big day. Cheshire offers many locations and venues that are excellent backdrops for great photos. Some of my most iconic wedding photos are captured at historic manor houses and castles throughout the area. One of the unique factors is the diversity that Cheshire has to offer. Gorgeous abbeys to luxury estates offer beautiful settings that create any type of setting you can imagine in this area of the UK.

I am a professional documentary wedding photographer that enjoys capturing seconds in time. Seconds full of tears and images full of humour and laughter make for the best wedding photographs. I encourage my couples to have lots of fun during our photo shoots. I'm not a fan of posing. I prefer to take photos that tell your story as naturally as possible. The special moments that aren't planned make the biggest impression and produce the fondest memories.
Make Your Day Special
Your wedding day should be as special and unique as you are! By choosing me as your Cheshire wedding photographer, it is my task to capture as many precious moments during your day as possible. I look for the real moments. The moments that you least expect. From the single cameos to the larger group shots, I look for your truth and the love you share.

1. What area do you cover?
I am based in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, which gives me access to Greater Manchester, Cheshire, and large areas of Yorkshire. As a rule, I am happy to travel up to 60 miles to cover a wedding. Any further than this I would have to charge a travel fee.
2. How many photos will I get from our wedding photography?
Every wedding is different and the number of images you receive can be a reflection of what moments are there to be captured. On a normal wedding day I usually deliver between 600-800 images to your online gallery.
3. How long will it be before I receive my wedding gallery?
I know how keen my couples are to see and share some images from their wedding day, so with this in mind I always like to provide a selection of teaser shots a day or two after the wedding day. This would usually be around 20-30 images. I then aim to deliver the full collection of images on an online gallery within 6-8 weeks.
4. Can I share my images and buy prints and wall art?
From the online gallery my coupes will have access to the full selection of wedding images, but they will be subtly watermarked. From the gallery you would be able to order any prints or wall art directly through my professional printing service. You would be able to share the gallery to any friends and family, and they too, would be able to order any prints they may like as well. If you wanted the full collection of high resolution images to share and keep, my couples do have the option of ordering a USB. See more on my packages page here.

Having been photographing weddings for the best part of 13 years, I am a highly experienced photographer. I have been lucky to work at some of the countries premium wedding venues and have one many awards, including the prestigious Guild Of Photographers Wedding Photographer of the Year for 2021.
6. Are you fully Insured?
Yes, I have insurance for all my equipment as well as £2M public liability insurance. I also have Drone insurance as well as the necessary drone qualifications to be legal and safe when flying at a wedding.
7. Will we have to pay extra for Drone Photos?
No. I see my drone as an essential piece of equipment on a wedding day, and so long as the weather allows it and it is safe to do so, I will use it on your wedding day to capture shots of the venue, your guests and it allows me to get creative when getting shots of my couples too.
