Wedding Industry Awards 2022 – Best Wedding Photographer

In January 2022 I was also The Wedding Industry Awards Photographer of the year 2022 for the whole of the North West.  Winning a highly competitive and high standard of awards. These awards are voted for by couples and then goes through a judging process based on photo quality and couples feedback.

Non Boring Wedding Photos!

So…..Have you ever been to a wedding as a guest and the photographer has taken the couple away for ages? Spent all day posing them, doing loads of group photos? Leaving little time for them to enjoy the drinks reception?

I have, and from that moment on I decided to approach weddings in a different way to many. I am incredibly passionate about photography and everything to do with weddings – including making sure my couples have the day they envisaged. My wedding photography style is natural, relaxed and unobtrusive.

On your wedding day there is nothing I would love more than for you to forget about me even being there and just enjoy your wedding with your family & friends.

This will leave me to do what I do best – taking photos of real moments as they happen in a fun and relaxed way, capturing the tears, laughter and joy from your wedding day.

My aim is to ensure that I document your wedding day as it happens, producing amazing images for you to enjoy for years to come.

What this means is that you actually get to enjoy your wedding day and not spend long periods away from your friends and family with your wedding photographer. In the build up to your wedding I am here for you as much as you need.

Get in touch if that sounds like something you are after.

True Feelings & Emotions

Couples Say

“Andy was a fantastic choice of photographer for our wedding at Colshaw Hall. He was the first supplier we booked after coming across his profile on Instagram and having a call. As someone who doesn’t enjoy posing for photos I knew that Andy’s style of photography would be perfect for our wedding – and he didn’t disappoint. As promised, the photos tell a story and show real emotion of the day, there’s so many to choose from and we love them more each time we look at them. Our guests commented that they didn’t notice us sneak off for some photos, as we were present for the majority of the drinks reception which gave us the chance to chat to all our guests and enjoy some drinks with them. The couples photos that we do have are amazing, creative and very natural which is exactly what we ordered. Andy made us feel relaxed and calm in the morning and captured each stage of the wedding throughout the day perfectly. If you’re looking for a modern style of photography and want to enjoy every moment of your wedding, then Andy is the photographer for you!”

Timeless Photographs

By choosing me to be your wedding photographer, you will have timeless photographs that you will be able to look back on in years to come and lose yourselves in the emotions and laughter of the day.
I want you  to reflect back on how great a day it was, remembering the moments, not the time spent away with your photographer.

What My
Couples Say

“Andy is the ideal wedding photographer. In the run up to the big day he helped us at every opportunity. On the day itself his relaxed, easy going manner put us immediately at ease which helped set the mood for the whole day. Thank you doesn’t seem to do justice for all his hard work. We would recommend you in a heartbeat Andy, and will make sure we do!”

Couples Say

We’re so lucky that Andy was our photographer. I fell in love with his work instantly, capturing the real emotion of the day is what it’s all about.
We’re obsessed with all 400 of our photos and still can’t stop looking at them 4 months after the wedding.
Not only is Andy’s work amazing, but so is the man himself. It was like we’d known him years and he fit into the family within minutes, made everyone feel so relaxed and kept the day running smoothly. We can never thank him enough.

Couples Say

I would recommend Andy Griffiths to anybody for your wedding photos if you want amazing, emotional, natural (but also some posed for) photos that capture every element of your day – even those moments you didn’t get to see because you were too busy enjoying your wedding day! When we received our photos we couldn’t believe the quality of the photos and all the moments Andy captured and the emotion in the pictures. We will treasure them for the rest of our lives, thank you for just being great at what you do Andy!

What My
Couples Say

“What can I say? John and I don’t normally like people taking photos of us, but Andy made the whole experience so easy. Whilst getting ready myself and the Bridesmaid forgot he was around and captured some lovely, natural photos. Andy made us laugh, made us feel comfortable and most of all made our day very special. Thank you for capturing our perfect day.
Highly recommended Andy Griffiths Photography.”
