Amarjit and Andrew were married recently at Manchester University, with a reception at The Axe and Cleaver in Dunham Massey. I photographed Amarjit & Andrew’s E-Shoot recently on Stanage Edge, and we plan to go back for a post wedding shoot in summer.
Amarjit was a guest at a wedding I photographed a couple of years back, and it wasn’t until our viewing meeting that the penny dropped – Amarjit had featured in one of my favourite wedding images of all time, also taken at Dunham Massey – at their friends Rebecca and Andrew’s wedding…
Amarjit & Andrew’s wedding was an intimate, but classic event. From the The Axe and Cleaver, a vintage bus took and Andrew and the majority of the wedding party to the council chambers at Manchester University for the ceremony, whilst Amarjit was having her preparations at home.The University was chosen since it meant something special to the pair of them – they studied and graduated there…hence the tongue-in-cheek shoot at the top of the page…all good fun!
I remember shooting one of the very first weddings at the University, and it’s a fantastic venue to work at – efficiently run by Liz and the team. Christie’s Bistro is worth a visit alone, as is the museum…complete with scale replica T-Rex. The day went well, with the weather improving constantly from a drizzly start, to full-on sunshine for the ceremony and following proceedings…which made the difference – because there was ice cream to be had – twice in fact, both at the University and at Dunham. I missed the opportunity at the University…(was a little busy somehow!), but got to the back of the queue at Dunham, for a well earned ten-minute break, before we moved on for some formal images at the mill pond.
hese are some of my favourites from the day…mostly the D3s on duty for these….as ever, any comments are welcome!
