Rebecca & Mike’s wedding at The Lowry Theatre, Salford

Rebecca & Mike were married at The Lowry recently, allowing me scope to show more of my Lowry Theatre Wedding Photography. Here are some from their collection…

I caught up with Becs having her makeup applied at her parents’ house. She’d been to the hairdressers with the girls and now everyone had disbanded to regroup before the cars arrived. My session with becs and her family was short in comparison, but I was asked to do my own thing and cover the wedding day as time (and our schedule) allowed. We did ok – but it was a 30 minute journey through Manchester to get to The Lowry, so timekeeping was paramount.

Weddings are all about family. This image, though seemingly ‘ordinary’ now, will mean a lot to this little girl in later years…

Just before I had to leave, there was just enough time for a wild west-style camera shootout. I lost this one, but live to shoot another day…

Once at The Lowry, guests were gathering for this special family event; lots of hugs, lots of smiles, plus a very tight-lipped Best Man over the content of his speech!

Becs and the girls arrived slightly late, in funky modern VW Beetle and clssic campervans. Slightly nervous, (Becs was not really one for being the centre of attention), our bride was in good hands, Dad Mike at the helm, steadying the ship…

Back in the Octagon Room, a slightly nervous Mike was awaiting the love of his life – a love who insisted she wouldn’t be crying on the day. Yeah, we’ll see… 😉

…and the tears of happiness came. For both of them. Told ya…

With the ceremony finished, it was time to gather in the bar for champagne and canapes – plus the obligatory cheek kisses. be rude not to!

Then we were off outside after a few minutes’ Bride & Groom portraits, for some family group imageslowry-theatre-wedding-photographer050 lowry-theatre-wedding-photographer054

As the guests made their way up to the Compass Room, we hung back for a few minutes to shoot a few more Bride & Groom images. Time to chill out and reflect on the day so far…

After the wedding breakfast, the speeches arrived. Heartfelt, touching and from the heart, the two Mikes took to the stage and delivered themsleves brilliantly…but now it was time for the Best Man….

Imagine Peter Kay crossed with Jimmy Carr. That was the Best Man. Hilarious, cutting, but at the same time honest about his best mate Mike – this speech should have been recorded. Sadly it wasn’t, but trust me, one of the best speeches ever!lowry-theatre-wedding-photographer093 lowry-theatre-wedding-photographer096 lowry-theatre-wedding-photographer097 lowry-theatre-wedding-photographer098 lowry-theatre-wedding-photographer100 lowry-theatre-wedding-photographer101

As the speeches finished, a magnificent rainbow appeared. Sadly, we couldn’t get down to the ground, so couldn’t see all of the arc, but we did our best with our limited view of it…

As Peter the DJ was setting up, we had chance for one more shot. This one…
