About Thomas Demol

Manchester wedding photographer Thomas Demol


Bonjour! Je m’apelle Thomas. I’m a fun loving perfectionist with a huge passion for photography.

I was born in Northern France and crossed the channel in 2008 to make a life and career for myself in Manchester.

When I’m not shooting weddings, I’m filling my spare time with one or two of my many, MANY hobbies. I love to cook, bake, knit, crochet, read, run, garden, build, make all sorts of things with balloons and play trombone in a local windband. I really love learning new things so this list will probably get bigger…

About Thomas Demol

Why Manchester?

Back in France, I studied to become a Physics and Chemistry teacher but also worked as a photojournalist for a local newspaper at the same time. I decided to take a break from my studies to learn another language which I thought could be useful and where better to learn than in the country itself?

An opportunity came up in Manchester and I’m still here! I was trapped (in a good way) by a British woman who is now my wife. We live in Stockport and are parents to one very spoiled cat, Ellie.

I am one of those lucky guys who not only managed to turn their passion into their work, but also found a home away from home in England’s amazing North West.

Why Photography?

I can’t say it enough, photography is my passion! I get a real satisfaction from taking pictures, especially ones that will become fantastic souvenirs of a couple’s unforgettable wedding day. I will travel as far as you need me to, whether it’s down the road or overseas and I’ll be fully prepared.

I love to create images which are bold, fresh, and natural, all packed full of colour and feeling and I believe that my personality helps me to achieve this.

I have an informal style and I’m a people person so I thrive at weddings when I’m surrounded by happiness and fun. Yes, I’ll blend into the background to take unobtrusive, documentary style shots, but I’ll also mingle, chatting and joking with everyone so they feel like I’m just another guest, but one with a big camera. Putting people at ease is essential to make sure your wedding photography is genuine and relaxed.

It’s important to get to know your photographer before you book, so if you want to get to find out more about me, my photography and wedding packages then please get in touch.

I offer a free wedding consultation at my home in Stockport along with tea, coffee and potentially some homemade bakes. We can chat about your plans for the big day and if you’re too busy or too far to travel over then we can arrange a video call.
