Manchester Town Hall Wedding Photography

Here are a few examples of my Manchester Town Hall Wedding Photography Manchester Town Hall is very popular wedding venue – and especially with us professional wedding photographers. We simply love the place –  especially the creative possibilities (and challenges!) that the venue offers. It seems that no two wedding shoots are the same, look the same, or ever reproduce the same – even in the ‘common’ areas of the Town Hall. I love the place, and every time I photograph a wedding there, the results are different. From the stunning sunlit windows in summer, through to the dark, almost Gothic feel in winter, Manchester Town Hall has it all. Here are a few highlights from various weddings I have produced as a Manchester Town Hall Wedding Photographer. All different, all unique….have a look and see how I would capture your wedding there.

The post is a little longer than normal…but easier to view than having to keep clicking on lots of different links, so please bear with it…

CAITLIN & TOM

Here’s Caitlin & Tom from their summer wedding. I met Tom and the groomsmen in Duttons, across Albert Square for a pre-ceremony beer…(them, not me!) I never did ask what was in those carrier bags… 🙂

Caitlin arrived in style – in a white cab from I Do Taxi with her father. Caitlin and her family hail from the USA, and I was secretly told that dad was 13 times Pro-Am World Line Dancing Champion! The first dance would be intersting then,…no pressure, eh Tom?

With canapes finished, and a few family group shots done, it was time for a few minutes of Bride & Groom portraits inside the Town Hall, before the wedding breakfast in the Great Hall – classic, stunning…and B-I-G!

JACQUI & DAVID

Here’s Jacqui & David – married in the summer at Manchester Town Hall. Pre-ceremony drinks were in Duttons again, whilst Jacqui made her way into Manchester City Centre, driven expertly by Rob from I Do Taxi.

From an emotionally-charged ceremony, it was time to take 20 mins off and head over to Affleck’s Palace for a few (in)formal photos of the newlyweds. The area has a special bond for them, as does the Midland Hotel…so we stopped of on our way back for a couple of cheeky shots before the family groups…

Again, the wedding breakfast was in the Great Hall, with some very funny – and very emotional speeches by the family members…

After speeches, we had 15 mins to grab a few more portraits, so we set off on a whistle-stop tour of the Town Hall. Lit via a combination of off-camera flash and natural daylight, these natural portraits took minutes…

LAURA & PAUL

Laura & Paul were married at Manchester Town Hall in Autumn. With Bride and Groom preparations in the city, the soon-to-be couple could walk their way from the hotels to the Manchester Town Hall. So Laura actually did…

Incredible Wedding Cake

Laura & Paul’s wedding cake was simply incredible (and very edible!). Mixing together their passion for Rock music, travel…and Lego, this was one of the very best cakes I’ve seen.

The Bridgewater String Quartet

Laura had planned a surprise for Paul and the guests. The Bridgewater String Quartet had been playing throughout the ceremony. Secretly, with only five weeks practice – from scratch, with her fractured wrist in a cast too, Laura tolied away and rehearsed some Vivaldi. ‘Winter’ is one of Paul’s favourite pieces, and Laura nailed her oart brilliantly – to thunderous applause and bewilderment of the guests!

JO & NICK

Jo & Nick were married at Christmas on a typical Manchester winter day. They were having the ceremony at the venue, before heading off to the Castlefield Rooms for the reception of 35 guests. Jo & Nick wanted a more documentary approach – a more reportage coverage of their wedding day. With no ties to mither them, and wearing their own suits, Nick and Best Man were in brilliant form. So, a slightly different approach for this wedding. The ceremony was at 4pm and the city was in darkness. Apart from a few Bride & Groom portraits, their entire wedding was shot without any flashguns. Proper documentary style…

For this wedding I opted shoot entirely on prime lenses. For a film-look, I went for a 1980s Fujicolor emulation, complete with authentic film grain…

KATE & MARC

Here’s Kate & Marc from their summer wedding at Manchester Town Hall. Timed to perfection, my schedule allowed Kate’s preparations photos, plus time to get from Altrincham to Manchester to catch up with Marc and the groomsmen.

Kate was very excited. Naturally so, it was going to be a brilliant day. After they were pronounced ‘Husband & Wife’, Kate let out a little yelp. Naturally so I say! 🙂

The wedding breakfast was to be held in the Banqueting Hall; still a very grand and stunning environment for a wedding reception…I’ve been a guest there a time or two, and it is simply gorgeous.
