Royal Toby Wedding Photography

Mia & Danny’s wedding photography from The Royal Toby

 

Royal Toby Hotel Wedding Venue

Mia & Danny booked me for their Royal Toby Hotel wedding photography over a year back, over the internet. I wasn’t going to meet them until their wedding day, save for a quick Facetime chat. The wedding was booked in for 10th September 2016…Derby Day!! Eeek…Danny, like myself is a Man City fan, but getting married on Derby Day was just unbelievable bad luck…or maybe not 😉 Theirs was to be my first wedding at the venue, producing their Royal Toby Hotel Wedding Photography.

When I arrived (on time!) to photograph Mia and the girls’ preparations, they were all but ready! The MUA had been very organised and the schedule was now running an hour under….never had this before 😉 So I got to work photographing Mia’s dress and shoes etc, and as I was quietly photographing the wedding bouquets, the silence became deafening as four young ladies just sat and watched me working! Mia is a local lass and from Middleton originally, hence she and Danny were getting married at Middleton Parish Church – or St Leonard’s to you and me.

Manchester Derby Day Wedding

I met Danny too for the first time in the Ring O’Bells oub, next to the church. So…I was now an hour early, having been suitably ‘despatched’ by Mia to go and watch the Derby in the pub with the wedding guests. Erm…let me think about this for a minute….

So here I was, shaking hands with the groom and watching the Derby with him in the pub. Bliss! Oh…and I shot a few images too.

Back on schedule, Mia arrived in her stunning Mercedes. The guests were gathered inside and the organist poised. A few last minutes snippets of advice to Danny, from family and friends – and we were off. Mia looked stunning and bursting with excitement as she and her dad walked into church.

Alex Birtwell Wedding Singer

From church, via a handful of family group photos and ten minutes in the park on our own, we headed to The Royal Toby Hotel. As we arrived, I could hear a familiar voice. Yep, my old mucker Alex Birtwell was in full flow entertaing the guests on outside and on the lawn.

The party was in full swing, and Alex was to be MC for the day too, all the way to the first dance. Awesome!
