Welcome to Lesley Thomas Photography

We take a documentary approach that marries both contemporary and classic styles capturing the day you want to remember. 

Timeless Quality

I believe that great wedding photographs should be timeless - like a little black dress or a classic car - something you'll always love. Natural, timeless and thoughtful are words used to describe our approach to wedding photography by some of our clients. Our documentary style transcends into narrative, with your story being told in a unique way. We hope your photographs will provide you with the memories of yesterday, the happiness of today and the promise of tomorrow.

Award Winning Photography

In 2010, after a career in fashion design, I made the transition from designer to photographer and was awarded a Master of Arts in Photography. (This lead to a love of documentary photography and defined my approach to Wedding Photography.) Shortly afterwards I was recognised by The Royal Photographic Society with the award of an Associateship. We are also extremely happy to have been voted as Northwest Regional Finalists by the Wedding Industry Awards since 2015.

Manchester Wedding Photographer

Whilst being Manchester Wedding Photographers, we commonly cover all of Cheshire, Lancashire, Yorkshire, Cumbria, the Wirral and Merseyside. Some of our regular venues include Rookery Hall, Bartle Hall, Thornton Manor, Combermere Abbey, The Isla Gladstone, Crewe Hall, Rivington Hall Barn, Peckforton Castle, Statham Lodge and Mitton Hall to name but a few. We love to travel and are happy to cover events both across the UK and Internationally.

What our clients say about Lesley Thomas Photography

Nick Anthony Wedding Photography Testimonial

Nicky & Anthony

Lesley these are stunning thank you so much!!! I barely knew you were there.. You were so discreet and unassuming, and on reflection that’s really impressive!! I was soooo nervous when getting ready I could barely speak and I really appreciated that you were just quietly getting on.. Thank you!! Lesley captured the essence of our wedding perfectly, could not have chosen a better, more sensitive photographer. She 'got' us completely…Lesley you are fab!

Jane and Ade Wedding Photography Testimonial

Jane & Ade

Hi Lesley, Thanks for the amazing job you did in capturing our day, we’re pleased as punch with our photos! Your bubbly and fun personality shines through in the unique moments you’ve captured – from a young guest proudly lifting up the petticoats of her frock to a snap of us being hemmed in by horse with a taste for champagne, you’ve snapped us and our guests at our most relaxed. You were fab to have around and you’ve over and above delivered on the service you promised. Many many thanks!

Amy and James Wedding Photography Testimonial

Amy & James

James and I were absolutely over the moon with the photographs you took of our Christmas wedding. For a change, we looked like models so you must be exceptional photographers as you caught us in our best possible light! You captured some fantastic natural shots which will hold great memories for us forever.

I can honestly say choosing Lesley, was the easiest decision of all to make! From first meeting to last Lesley was professional but approachable, friendly and reassuring. We booked her immediately and we're so glad we did! We've got our album (and parent books) now - 3 weeks ahead of schedule!  Lesley captured everything in stunning quality and clarity; we simply couldn't be happier with our album or with Lesley and we'd recommend her without question!!
