A little about what we do

We have been capturing wedding pictures and shooting films in Cheshire and on the Wirral since 2006. Over time we have developed a fun, relaxed, and elegant style. This lets the day unfold and captures more than just the obvious. We are all about the natural look and feel. We believe in being the right fit for our couples because, after all, it's your big day!


Below are some of the weddings videos we have captured across Cheshire and the Wirral. We work very closely with wedding venues to ensure that your day goes smoothly. This is so that you enjoy every moment with your family and guests 

Check out our highlights from 2020

A little about me

So, let's start with a name, I'm Michael Harper and I own Capture My Big Day based in Cheshire. Since as long as I can remember iv been telling stories using photography and film. From 16 my father taught me the basics and it has never stopped from there!

Now many years later I work alongside my amazing wife in a custom-built state of the art wedding studio producing albums and films that our wedding couples will enjoy time and time again.

Our passion is capturing natural moments that tell a story. I use an unobtrusive style to document the day. Iv been capturing weddings since 2006 and I use all that experience to be in the right place at the right time so we can capture everything as it unfolds in a natural relaxed way.

We only take on a limited amount of weddings each year to preserve the quality of our product. Every Wedding is carefully edited and produced to give you the best possible memories.

I am always just a message away if you have any questions at all so feel free to reach out to ask whatever is on your mind.

Thanks for reading,

Mike Harper

Where do we start.. other than I was already stalking Capture My Big Day before we were actually engaged! Ive always been blown away with Michael's work, and it was a dream to have him at our wedding. 


Michael, you've been one of the kindest and understanding people in our wedding bubble and your work is nothing less than perfect. 
Thank you so so much for everything

We absolutely made the right decision to choose Mike to capture our wedding day for photo and film.
Everything he captures is literally perfect and he makes you feel so special on your day. During the day Mike was very discreet and unobtrusive, whilst also having a laugh with us and our guests. 
We simply had the best of the best and I can’t stress enough to book Mike for your wedding!
