Haydn Rydings is a wedding photographer based in Middleton, Manchester.

"Photography is about seeing, as opposed to looking. Seeing implies understanding, and understanding is crucial if a photograph is to become something more than just a still picture."


We chose Haydn for our wedding at Chester Zoo and recently recieved our photos back. We are blown away by the outstandingly stunning images captured. Thoroughly professional throughout and a pleasure to have by our sides on our special day. Haydn has caught the emotions of our day perfectly. Superb. Highly recommend :)

Unlike all the other choices on offer when planning a wedding, when it came to the photographer Ed & I only actually looked at Haydn’s work and Knew instinctively there was no one else we wanted to record our day. We didn’t opt for the engagement session so the first time I met Haydn in person was on the morning of the big day. I felt like we’d met before, Haydn was not only extremely professional but has a wonderful calm persona and I hardly noticed he was there. With all the excitement and anticipation of the day this is such an important quality to have in your photographer. Now the pictures! It’s hard to describe why we are so enthralled with the results, the pictures capture the day with the honesty I was expecting from Haydn but there Is a magic about them only he can create. We can’t stop looking at them and keep noticing different expressions and moments that have been captured beautifully and we can cherish for the rest of our lives. We trusted Haydn 100% in fact we never doubted the images would be amazing as we only had to look at his portfolio and let him get on with his job – what more could you ask for? I only wish now we had the engagement session …… Thank you so much Haydn, I only wish I was better at articulating our absolute joy in regards to your work.

We were getting married in Iceland and we wanted a photographer that could not only capture the emotions of that day but also the beautiful scenery. When we saw Haydn's portfolio online we knew we found the perfect photographer for us and we contacted him right away. Haydn was very prompt with responding and took the time to answer our questions. As a couple who never had pictures professionally taken, he made us feel very comfortable. Haydn put us completely at ease. Haydn is very professional and friendly. He was so much fun to work with and we had such a great experience during the pre-wedding shoot and on the wedding day. Now our photos...We were and are still blown away by them! Haydn captured our moment in a way that we can feel the raw emotions from that day, as well as the natural beauty of Iceland. Haydn has such an artistic vision which translates into amazing and magical photos! He is truly talented and his passion for his work shows in his photos. Thank you Haydn! We are so happy to have found you and we highly recommend you. Your work is truly beautiful and unique!

Haydn is a class act. He photographed our Lake District wedding this summer and we could not be more pleased with the images. Every single one is beautiful. He managed to capture the atmosphere of the day so perfectly, as well as all sorts of little moments we wouldn't otherwise have been able to see. He works with complete confidence and professionalism and we couldn't recommend him more highly.

Haydn is a remarkable photographer and I'm proud my husband and I got to experience his exquisite talent first-hand. On the morning of the wedding he arrived on time and set to work autonomously without any fuss. I don't know where he disappeared to because I can't remember seeing him again till we were married. Yet there are the most beautiful pictures of that whole morning; it's safe to say Haydn wears an invisible cloak. The photos he took capture every last drop of the excitement, hysteria and love that our friends and family gave off that day - with subtle shots that say so much more than I could ever have hoped for. We'll definitely be recommending Haydn to all our friends getting married next year. Kitty Ryder.
