Lancashire Wedding Photographer

-Alternative, Real & Natural Images-

Hey, I’m Andy Hirst, Lancashire wedding photographer telling stories all over the North West of the UK including Manchester, Liverpool, The Lakes as well as the always welcome trip over the Pennines to Yorkshire.


My style is very organic, I prefer to capture moments instead of staging a shot. I have an alternative outlook in general and live by the motto “Just be yourself” This means you receive wedding images that are real and full of life, visually organic and not too digital whilst remaining timeless.


I am a fly on the wall, albeit a tall one. I have mastered the art of going unnoticed at a wedding and being in the right place at the right time. Immersing myself into your wedding not only as an observer but experienced the atmosphere with my photography.


The most important thing in life is the people you experience it with. Showing the connection and atmosphere you and your guests create is what I am truly passionate about, creating photographs that tell a story about people, love and relationships.

-Happy Couples-

“We were looking for a photographer who had something more than the usual group shots and photos of champagne glasses. Andys portfolio stood out and showed a photographer who noticed and captured the extra little moments during the day, combined with a great eye for lighting and composition.”

-Alice + Tom

“One of the main reasons we chose Andy was that he wasn’t ‘in your face’. We are not stand up in front of a camera sort of people and Andy’s approach was just perfect, he didn’t once make us feel uncomfortable, he was very discreet.”

-Alyson + Carl

“Really liked the style of Andy’s work and wanted someone who could document the day without the need for lots of formal shots, especially as neither of us feel particularly comfortable in front of the camera. We also really wanted a northerner to shoot our wedding….and Andy is a good northern lad!”
