Manchester Wedding Photographer – Best of 2017

Manchester Wedding Photographer – Best of 2017

 

Best of 2017

Some of my favourite images from 2017 as a Manchester Wedding Photographer

2017 in Pictures

2017 has been a brilliant year for me. I have photographed fifty weddings, all around the North West, with a slight detour in June, to Limerick in Ireland too. I have met and worked with some wonderful people, as well as some of my favourite venues, such as Eaves Hall, Mitton Hall, On The 7th, Styal Lodge, Sandhole Oak Barn, Bartle Hall and Beeston Manor to name but a few.

Top Wedding Venues

I have also had the opportunity to not only be a Manchester Wedding Photographer, but a Lancashire Wedding Photographer, Liverpool Wedding Photographer, a Tipi Wedding Photographer and Cheshire Wedding Photographer too. Some new venues to me include the fabulous West Tower, King Street Townhouse and Rivington Hall Barn, and I look forward to working there again in 2018.

Choosing my favourite images from the 50 weddings I photographed in 2017 has proved to be a very difficult task. I gave up in the end! But these images are just some of my favourites from the year – and I have to thank each and every client I have had in front of the Nikons for being brilliant and allowing me to photograph their special day in my natural style. Thank you guys! (Wow, this is almost turning into an acceptance speech… 😉 )

I hope you like them. If you do…why not get in touch to discuss your wedding day. The 2018 Diary is filling up quickly now, and I wouldn’t want to disappoint anybody by being unavailable…

Jacqui & David’s wedding photos from Manchester Town Hall – the most famous City Centre wedding venue

Here is another example of my Manchester Town Hall Wedding Photography. Jacqui & David were married recently at Manchester Town Hall, one of my favourite wedding venues to work at. Commissioned around a year ago, these images form the highlights from their fantastic wedding day.

Unique Manchester Wedding Venue

Manchester Town Hall is a firm favourite amongst the Manchester Wedding Photographers, and rightly so. Every visit seems different somehow, with both new challenges and creative opportunities. An awesome venue. I was really looking forward to Jacqui & David’s Town Hall wedding; they are very relaxed…possibly a little too relaxed at times (only kidding!), but from our first meeting, we were ‘all knowing where we were going with this one…’

I was lucky to be in the safe hands of Rob from I Do Taxi. I got to ride in the front of his stunning white cab, into town with the groomsmen…straight to Duttons for a few beers…them, not me!

With a very tight schedule, it was off to Affleck’s  for a few shots, then a drive by The Midland for a few more…before meeting the guests outside the Town Hall for a few family photos…

Kat & Matt’s summer wedding photos from Manchester Town Hall

Kat & Matt were married recently at Manchester Town Hall, and commissioned me to be their Manchester Town Hall Wedding Photographer. I have to say, the Town Hall is still one of my top three wedding venues to work at – I never get tired of the place, whatever time of year. An early start saw me South Manchester-bound for Kat’s preparations with ‘the girls’. Incredibly relaxed (for a change) the morning ran like clockwork, with the usual to-ings and fro-ings of a wedding morning. Even a mild panic with one of the bridesmaid dresses was swiftly handled by Matt’s mum – a bit of an expert seamstress I was told by Kat…..and she was correct! No problem! Here’s some of my favourite images from my being a Manchester Town Hall Wedding Photographer…

manchester-town-hall-wedding-photographer-001manchester-town-hall-wedding-photographer-002 manchester-town-hall-wedding-photographer-003 manchester-town-hall-wedding-photographer-004 manchester-town-hall-wedding-photographer-005 manchester-town-hall-wedding-photographer-006 manchester-town-hall-wedding-photographer-007 manchester-town-hall-wedding-photographer-008 manchester-town-hall-wedding-photographer-009 manchester-town-hall-wedding-photographer-010 manchester-town-hall-wedding-photographer-011 manchester-town-hall-wedding-photographer-012 manchester-town-hall-wedding-photographer-013 manchester-town-hall-wedding-photographer-014

When the flowers arrived, the excitement started to build, the champagne was opened and the noise levels went up a few clicks….we were just over two hours away from the ceremony now…..not long at all…

And the time allocated for me to take Kat’s dress shots was extended…we were actually ahead of time too…..which was nice. I love Manchester City Centre weddings; I have to travel light, and work that little bit harder, and leaving some of my kit back at home, my kit bag was lighter than usual. Catching up with Matt and the boys at The Slug and Lettuce, there was all the time in the world it seemed…all incredibly relaxed. I had to keep checking the town hall clock opposite to make sure it hadn’t stopped! 😉  I have to mention – I think my job is exciting and love every minute of it. But Matt? He (just) flies helicopters!

Again, bang on time arrived a rather giddy and excited Kat with her bridesmaids. Time enough for a few bridal portraits outside the famous entrance, and we were off up the stairs to the ceremony room, where the guests were all assembled, and Matt and Best Man Tom – who, incidentally looks nothing like Ross Kemp (erm…) were sharing a few private jokes…well out of my earshot anyway.

After the ceremony, we spent 20 mins outside in the courtyard of the Town hall. We were planning a trip to Castlefield, but fell in love with the unusual cobbled and gothic -looking backdrops for the bride and groom portraits. It was a great call -no travelling ensured we could utilise the time to shoot both outside, and inside…even with a touch of off-camera flash for added value!

From the wedding breakfast and speeches, we were fairly quickly into the evening celebrations; cake cut first dance, live band…awesome pace to this wedding…

Castlefield Rooms Wedding Photography

Jo & Nick’s wedding photos from Manchester Town Hall & The Castlefield Rooms

Joanna & Nick were married at Manchester Town Hall just before Christmas. I love shooting in the Town Hall, especially in Winter; I’m a low light specialist and love using high ISO, fast prime lenses and available light wherever I can. But even in winter, there are times when a little off-camera flash is called for, if only to ‘lighten the mood’ a little 😉 Joanna & Nick’s wedding was possibly the most relaxed affair I’ve ever witnessed. No ties, or matching suits. No fuss(y) formalities, minimum flowers, transport and an intimate gathering of family and friends made for a brilliantly relaxed wedding. And there was time to keep up to date with the footie scores….Nick’s a massive City fan (good lad!). Simon, his Best Man had flown in from Australia too, and was as chilled like he’d just got off the bus! But a 4pm ceremony in December…in the Town Hall means one thing. It’s going to be dark. And atmospheric. Perfect. For all you photographers out there, we’re talking 3200/6400 ISO and f1.4 lenses here, with the occasional radio triggered flash for the formals. The Castlefield Rooms was a constant 6400 ISO…an almost candlelit bright environment. Joanna & Nick really like my ‘urban style’ of high ISO photography, and I had free reign to shoot as I pleased. This means travelling light with three or four lenses on a Nikon D3s. Still a brilliantly performing  favourite amongst many wedding Pros.

Opting for film emulation, the look of these images has been enhanced with a little grain…yes, added, to make the images look more organic and less digital, but not too much as to spoil the atmosphere of the images.castlefield_rooms_wedding_photographer_018castlefield_rooms_wedding_photographer_019castlefield_rooms_wedding_photographer_021castlefield_rooms_wedding_photographer_022

From being a ‘Manchester Town Hall Wedding Photographer’, it was time to become a ‘Castlefield Rooms Wedding Photographer‘ and settle down with a good old 50mm, 24mm and 35mm lens combination. No zooms here…just useless in the beautiful ambience offered by The Brindley Room.castlefield_rooms_wedding_photographer_038castlefield_rooms_wedding_photographer_039castlefield_rooms_wedding_photographer_040castlefield_rooms_wedding_photographer_041castlefield_rooms_wedding_photographer_042castlefield_rooms_wedding_photographer_043castlefield_rooms_wedding_photographer_044castlefield_rooms_wedding_photographer_045

With speeches brief, funny and to the point, the guests settled down to a stunning hot buffet…with yours truly tagged onto the end of the conga for a plate of chicken curry. Well…Joanna forced me…so it’d be rude to offend the client, surely?  😉castlefield_rooms_wedding_photographer_046castlefield_rooms_wedding_photographer_047castlefield_rooms_wedding_photographer_048castlefield_rooms_wedding_photographer_049castlefield_rooms_wedding_photographer_050castlefield_rooms_wedding_photographer_051castlefield_rooms_wedding_photographer_052

Overall, I’m very pleased with the look of Joanna & Nick’s wedding – very analogue and organic. Full of atmosphere and looking very different to the more ‘expected’ style. I’m certainly looking forward to more winter weddings in 2014….

Celebrating the Chinese wedding of Jackie & Phil Lau in Manchester

chinese-wedding-photography-manchester-001 chinese-wedding-photography-manchester-002

I recently photographed the wedding of Jackie & Phil in Manchester. It was a Monday in October, with a 7am start in Fallowfield, with plenty of things to come throughout the day, making this wedding highly unique.

chinese-wedding-photography-manchester-003 chinese-wedding-photography-manchester-004

Still slightly bleary-eyed, Phil and the groomsmen arrived for some traditional 9?) party games to gain access to the flat where Jackie was getting ready. Drinking a shot of vinegar, licking treacle from cellophane, even eating food from a cat bowl using k=no hands…all good fun…especially as it had just turnes 8am! 😉

Once allowed inside, it was time for the first of several tea ceremonies. First was Jackie’s parents.

From the tea ceremony, we were off in convoy over to the other side of Manchester to Phil’s parents for their tea ceremony…but first a couple of formal images…

From Phil’s parents house, I left for the Town Hall, leaving the breakfast buffet behind to catch up with my old friend and photographer  Martin Hambleton who was on second camera duties with me for the ‘second stage’ of the day at Manchester Town Hall…

With around thirty guests for this ceremony, plus a change into traditional dress for Jackie, Martin and I worked quickly and seamlessly organiding family groups, plus some Bride & Groom portraits…

From ‘stage two’, we were off to ‘stage three’. Saying goodbye and thanks to Martin, I headed off to Middleton, to the fantastic Ocean Treasure restaurant. Jackie arrived with Phil, but went straight into a side room for a dress change – a classic red outfit, stunning it was too. As the guests arrived…around 300 of them, the atmosphere was building. With live Karaoke on stage, more fun and games, speeches from the happy couple, the celebrations began…

With a few more Bride & Groom portraits, we headed back to Manchester for ‘stage four’..a small party at The Living Room, complete with DJ and photobooth, plius a speech by the Best Man. By now we were well into the thirteenth hour so it was time for me to politely say goodbye and leave the party in full swing…
