About Ayesha Rahman

Hiya I’m Ayesha (pronounced “eye – sha”).

I actually hate “About Me” pages so I’m just going to ramble on about a few random things and hope you get me 🙂

I have a habit of overly use the following words – a lot… Amazing, Lovely, Actually, Right and So. I’ve been considering adding the word “mint” back into my vocab though. I mean I am Mancunian so I can right?!

I’m a massive Wes Anderson and Quentin Tarantino fan. The Grand Budapest Hotel and Pulp Fiction are two of my favourite films ever.

I adore Ibiza. I’ve been more times than I can remember. I’m still in mourning for Space nightclub.

I’m proud to say that I have actually hassled the Hoff – yes, yes I have.

I love a dance off.

I’ve rediscovered an obsession with vinyl – suggestions totally welcome please.

My food weaknesses are crisps and dips and chilli sauce. Although not together!

I totally laugh when people fall over – sorry! But in my defence I also fall over a lot and I laugh at myself too.

I pretty much say yes to most things because I have a serious bout of the FOMO’s.

My passport is well used and if I could jump on a plane this afternoon and have an adventure in another country then I would. Ooh where to go…

He estudiado español durante 18 meses y me gusta mucho! Quiero usar el español en mi trabajo, asi que ponte en contacto si me quieres en tu boda! Que guay no?!

I find myself seriously funny.

I always look guilty… no matter what.

I love an exclamation mark and I’m not ashamed of it!!

If my house was on fire I’d rescue a photo of my dad, my cat and hubby, my Valentino shoes and my Chanel handbag.

Procrastination is an illness yes? Well I think I have it, or do I, not sure actually, maybe I do but I think I’ll have to think about it some more.

About Ayesha Rahman

When not photographing weddings or families or now that I’ve finished planning my own day. I got married not that long ago in New York which was blinking amazing, get in touch if you’re getting married in the Big Apple and need any advice or a photographer! I love nothing more than travelling with my job… I have an unhealthy amount of Lonely Planet guides that keep me busy planning! Check out some of my personal travel blog posts here. When not travelling I’m busy trying to learn how to speak Spanish (slowly), discovering new haunts in Manchester or walking my fur baby Bear (or Archie as he’s really called).  Netflix/movie night binges are big in my house which are enjoyed with my hubby Phil and our very shy cat Biscuit who may or may not loiter around the sofa. Music is a huge part of my life and I love booking gigs or club nights, scouting for new vinyl and sat pondering how we can live in Ibiza permanently!


About Ayesha Rahman

In 2016 I was shortlisted for “30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography” by Rangefinder Magazine. Now let me put this into perspective for you… this is in the world for 2016!! The results were announced and although I didn’t quite make the top 30, I’m still insanely proud to be even considered for this alongside around 200 very talented photographers across the globe.

My work has also been featured on top wedding blogs such as Rock n’ Roll Bride, Love My Dress, Festival Bride, Boho Bride, Mr and Mrs Unique and many more. I am also a proud official supplier to Rock My Wedding’s The List.

I’ve met the most wonderful couples and their friends and family over the years and I’m fortunate enough to call a lot of my couples friends and I adore that I get to be part of their lives as a mate long after the wedding. Although awards, features and recognition in the industry is all pretty darn lovely, it’s not why I love my job. I do it for you, for my couples, to give you flipping amazing photographs that you’re going to love forever. I spend time getting to know you, we can hang out, chat weddings or not and then on the day it’s like having another mate with you who happens to take gorgeous photos and can bust moves with you on the dance floor… what’s not to love about that?!


About Ayesha Rahman

My job has taken me to New Zealand, Italy, Spain, France, Portugal and all over the UK and Ireland capturing gorgeous weddings. I’ve photographed beautiful “I do’s” from actual castles (like actual Downton Abbey or Highclere Castle as it’s called in real life), stunning rooftop urban hotels, rainy and sunny beach nuptials, muddy festival field vows, boat receptions and beyond!

So if you want me to shoot your big day then come and say hello and tell me all about what you’re planning. x
