Finding the RIGHT photographer is hard

  • You have high expectations.
  • You have budget constraints.
  • You have to compete for availability.

I’m Wes Simpson, a professional documentary wedding photographer from Lancashire. I don’t just take photos for your wedding, I make it a seamless and enjoyable experience where you can:

  • Forget the poses – Be present without worrying about the camera.
  • Feel confident – Precious moments make memories. I’ll capture it all.
  • Document your story – It’s about how the moment felt, the bits you missed, and proudly sharing photos you will remember forever.

Your love story deserves nothing less.

My Approach

My style is natural and creative, capturing you at your best and the moments that matter. My approach is 85% documentary, capturing the day as it unfolds. I’m a sucker for storytelling moments, laughter and emotions. 

You can trust I’ve got your back, so I will direct (not pose) when needed. I don’t want you to have shit photos, we’re a team! You might want some group shots (these take just 15 minutes).

I photograph weddings for authentic, adventurous couples who love life. Real, meaningful photos captured in a fun and relaxed way.

I WANT YOUR PHOTOS TO MEAN THE WORLD TO YOU…

OK! and maybe break the internet when you post them ;-)

It’s about how it felt, the bits you missed, to the morning after when I text you those previews, to proudly showing family and friends, and even to 10 years later when you’re showing your children how madly in love and SPICY their parents were on their wedding day!
