Hi, I’m Ben

The face of the wedding guy

I’m Ben Stokes, The Wedding Guy (not the England Cricketer). I’m a creative and emotive storyteller and professional photographer, based in Cheshire.

My aim is to create imaginative, artistic imagery that you can cherish forever, and always look back on with a smile and warm heart. To tell the story of your special day, I capture your wedding as it unfolds. This creates authentic images that detail the natural, unique moments that make your day, and you as a couple, so special.

Its an amazing feeling capturing the beautiful moments and seeing the sheer amount of love between a happy couple. It’s an honour and absolute pleasure to share such a special and monumental occasion with you and your guests. I begin shooting early in the morning, and don’t stop until way in to the evening, I’m usually one of the last people on the dance floor.

Photography has always been my passion, I can’t remember a time that I didn’t have a collection of cameras, both new and vintage. My dissertation project at University was all photographed using a vintage Rolleiflex camera. My first ever camera being a Canon 5D Mk II, bought for me by my dad, something that I will treasure forever. Sony has since been my preferred camera of choice. I absolutely love being outdoors, all things food related (I’m a massive foodie), and travelling the world with my amazing wife, Lauren. We tied the knot in July 2021.

I studied photography at college and then went onto Salford University in Manchester to follow my dream of being a professional photographer. Having graduated university with a first class BA honours degree in 2014 I headed out into the world of photography and have loved every single day of it.

Starting my own business with my wife, The Wedding Guy, is a complete dream for me and I wholeheartedly enjoy every minute of it. I cover weddings here in the North West, nationwide, and also international destinations around the world.

Feel free to contact me anytime, for help, recommendations, or just a chat!
