Hi. You’re in the right place if you’re looking for our Manchester wedding photographer reviews. On this page you’ll find a selection of our favourite Manchester wedding photos (click on the link to see full galleries).
We were delighted to win the award for North West Wedding Photographer of the Year from TWIA. We went up against some fantastic Manchester photographers that we really admire, so to be recognised for our work in such esteemed company means a lot to us.
Not only that, but we went on to be highly commended (which we think means second) in the national awards for the UK Wedding Photographer of the Year.
We love photographing weddings. We loved shooting these couples and we’d love to talk about being a part of your day. Maybe these reviews of our style and our photos will be what it takes to get you to drop us an email or pick up the phone and have a chat. All of the couples below did and we think they’re glad they did too!
We booked The Crawleys 2 years in advance
“We booked The Crawleys over 2 years in advance of our wedding just to secure them as there work is so popular. They are an amazing duo- on the day Liam mingled with our guest and brought such spontaneity with his shorts it was so much fun for us! Every image captured them day perfectly… we’ve already recommended them to a friend of ours who has booked them for their wedding in 2017!”

The Crawleys are simply outstanding
“The Crawleys are simply outstanding at what they do. From the moment we met Liam we knew we HAD to have him photograph our wedding and we are so thankful that he did. He put everyone at ease and was so happy to sit and speak to all our guest and get involved in the action. Honestly could not recommend The Crawleys enough and will continue to recommend them to anyone getting married.”
Mrs Jessica Dean (O’Connor) – Manchester
“The service was amazing, from start to finish, and the images we have now are so fantastic – we will treasure them forever. Thank you!! ☺”
Mrs Jane Last – Manchester
A perfect wedding photographer
“My new wife and I are absolutely delighted with our wedding photographs. They are stunning! Family and friends have commented that they’re the best set of photographs they’ve ever seen! We couldn’t be more chuffed, they capture our special day perfectly. Liam is really creative and shot from unusual angles, creating some bold and contemporary images. We also loved his relaxed approach when mingling with guests. A perfect wedding photographer, we couldn’t have asked for more!
Peter Kelly – Manchester
Pictures are all over our house
Very easy style and everyone enjoyed working with him. His pictures from the wedding are all over our house. Excellent service. I booked The Crawleys before I’d even told my parents I was getting married!

We were worried we wouldn’t be cool enough
Liam was easygoing yet professional and thorough. We were worried initially that us country folk wouldn’t be ‘cool’ enough but after the pre-wedding shoot Liam made us feel really comfortable and relaxed. He seemed to understand what was important to us in our wedding photos. We felt confident to ask Liam anything we were unsure of or any requests we had. He fitted right into the day and captured it perfectly.”
“The quality and originality of Liam’s photos on his website were second to none, we wanted somebody who would get stuck in and get involved with people on our wedding day, his photos reflect that. You can get a feel of the atmosphere of every wedding he shoots.”
Jess Bradshaw – Manchester
Made all the guests feel comfortable
We immediately liked Liam on meeting him and had a nice drink in a relaxed atmosphere whilst going though all the necessary pre-booking information, we chose Liam out of 5 very good photographers due to his friendly character, modern vision and accommodating ways.
The team were very prompt responding to emails and helpful.
Liam arrived at our venue in plenty of time, made all the bridal party and guests feel very comfortable and just got on with his ‘thing’. He doesn’t intrude and interrupt the day’s flow, in fact he helped us coordinate the day smoothly. He is open to ideas and got our photos back to us quickly.
Although we didn’t meet ‘Bee’ (Liam’s wife) personally, she was working in the background editing our photos and replying to emails when Liam was at shoots. We were very pleased with our photos and would definitely use Liam again for further celebrations and events.

Seeing Liam’s work on another family wedding my fiancee and I didn’t hesitate to book him. He has made an amazing day even more so and I couldn’t have wished for a better set of photographs, they truely do capture the essence of the day. Liam is passionate about his profession and his professionalism and both his and his wife’s impeccably high standards are maintained throughout not just the day but in the editing studio too.
Liam has managed to find the balance between taking intimate pictures without being intrusive. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough and our pictures have been admired by everyone who sees them. I know my wife and I will be able to keep our special day alive through Liam’s fantastic pictures.
For those concerned about the price let me assure you he is worth every single penny and I would have been willing to pay much more. The quality and enjoyment will remain long after the price has been forgotten.
Book him now and I swear you’ll never regret it.
We booked Liam and his team from overseas and didn’t meet him until the week before our wedding, we really couldn’t have asked for a better service and collection of photographs. The images have had everyone talking about how great they are.

Cranage Hall, Dec 2008
Liam and his team took our photos for our Wedding in July 2009. From the moment we met Liam we knew he was the photographer for us. The little extra touches such as the pre-wedding shoot allowed us to get a feel of the type of shots we’d expect from the day, and the whole concept of the photography is contemporary yet classic, without that “staged” feel that you see from so many other photographers. On the day, Liam and his team worked tirelessly, and stayed much later than most other photographers would have. The end result is that we have a set of photographs that perfectly captured our big day. Highly recommended!!
More than perfect…can’t recommend The Crawleys enough…can’t fault Liam!!
It was the best money we spent on our wedding because we have beautiful photos that capture all the big and little moments of the day, and tell a flowing story of our wedding day. It is very obvious when working with Liam that he is extremely experienced in wedding photography.
Our pre-wedding shoot was a brilliant idea because it took away any anxieties of being photographed from the big day because we knew how comfortable, easy and fun Liam made it.
Liam listened to our requests for our day and he was respectful of what we wanted from our photographs. He was very professional on the day and was a pleasure to have there. He was unnoticeable while he took candid photos of us and our guests which created really good natural photos. But he was equally talented at rounding guests up into positions for the confetti shots and group photos. He was very organised and knew in advance exactly what photos to take, where, how etc, which made things flow so well.
Our guests have made comments on how good he was on the day and they have all been impressed with his photos. He listened to our needs and put together a wedding package we were extremely happy with.
He was very good at communicating to us before, during and after the wedding, keeping us updated with how things were progressing. He promptly had our photos ready for us after our honeymoon and showed them to us in his cosy studio with a glass of champagne-perfect setting for our first viewing. We dont ever get bored of looking at our wedding photographs.
We really would recommend The Crawleys to anyone! Go along to his studio, view his portfolio and you wont want to look anywhere else!!!
We chose The Crawleys after he was recommended to us by another MPA photographer. After attending his studio to see his work, we were absolutely blown away and immediately booked Liam to photograph our wedding. In the few weeks before meeting Liam we had attended quite a few other studios and we can honestly say that the pictures we saw during that first meeting put The Crawleys head and shoulders above the rest. 2 years later (not that we booked early or anything) it was time for our pre-wedding shoot.
We chose the place where we had our first date, namely Rivington and Liam was more than happy to travel to our perfect location, despite the fact it was over an hour away from Chester. The pictures were beautiful and really captured the magic of a place which is very special to us both. A well as putting us at ease, the pre wedding shoot was a lovely way to take a break from all the planning and actually take time to enjoy the run up to the wedding and to get excited about it.
When the big day finally arrived, we already felt we knew Liam and his calm and friendly approach meant that taking the photo’s didn’t interrupt the flow of the day and Liam managed to get some lovely shots without us even knowing . We also got to sneak away for half an hour in order to get some pictures of just us, which after all, is what it’s all about. The end result was a beautiful album which included some absolutely stunning shots (even if we do say so ourselves) and which we we treasure forever.
We have no hesitation in recommending Liam and The Crawleys wholeheartedly as the perfect photographer for a perfect day and someone who is truly amazing at what he does.
