Hi!, I’m Wes Simpson – a creative documentary wedding photographer. With 20+ years experience in the television and photography industry my knowledge of body language, film and lighting enables me to pre-empt and capture special moments as they happen. Based in Ormskirk, Lancashire, which is situated in-between Liverpool and Manchester in the North West of England, however there is no limit to where I will travel to in-order to tell your story.



Wes Simpson is a UK and International luxury-wedding photographer, widely recognised as being one of the most desirable photographers in the UK. Professionally trained as a Cameraman by the BBC and aided by his BA (Hons) Media Degree, Wes’s technical knowledge of framing and lighting empowers his visual storytelling style. His unique approach to photography can be credited to his early career, which saw him working on various TV shows, such as Hollyoaks, Brookside and Shameless, together with the feature films Alfie, with Jude Law and 51st State, starring Samuel L Jackson.

Commercially, Wes has filmed and photographed musicians including rock group U2, Paul Weller, Pink and Morrissey. The quality of his work, coupled with his professionalism and enthusiasm, led to him providing photography for the weddings of numerous celebrities, Premiership footballers and brides and grooms from all walks of life who value his emotive style. Wes’s unique approach to wedding photography even caught the eye of TV producers who enlisted him to be a feature photographer on Channel 5’s ‘Celebrity Wedding Planner’.

In the world of photography, legendary photography ambassador and author Skip Cohen recently sought Wes out as the first photographer outside of the United States to take part in a Feature Interview about his work. In 2016, Wes was commissioned to photograph the wedding of the UK’s biggest selling Classical Artist, Russell Watson; a destination wedding, which featured in an impressive 11 page spread in HELLO! Magazine. More recently, Wes’s ability to capture emotion has led to him being nominated for Wedding Photographer Of The Year at the North West Wedding Awards, consecutively in 2016 and 2017.
