King Street Townhouse Winter Wedding

Highlights from Sarah & Rich’s winter wedding at this unique Manchester wedding venue

 

King Street Townhouse Winter Wedding

King Street Townhouse is a relatively new Manchester-based wedding venue. It is owned by the Eclectic Hotels Collection, who also own On The 7th and Great John Street Hotel where I have also photographed weddings. This was to be my first wedding shoot there, just before Christmas last year. And, being December, the Manchester weather was not perfect….rain and more rain. All day! Not to be deterred, I was to approach this King Street Townhouse winter wedding with the minimum amount of kit. I travelled light, with two Nikon bodies and four prime lenses. This winter wedding was to have proper documentary-style coverage.

I got to Sarah’s suite to find the very talented Jodie on hair and makeup duties….together with her funky new ring light. The atmosphere was all calm, as Sarah and her friends were getting ready; I even had time to catch up with Rich and his mates for the ten minutes it takes for groomsmen to get ready. Easy peasy being a fella. My being a King Street Townhouse wedding photographer was suiting the 24mm, 35mm  and 50mm lenses perfectly.

Wedding ceremony at King Street Townhouse

Sarah & Rich’s winter wedding at King Street Townhouse was to be an emotional day. Sarah’s mum had recently passed away, and the air was tinged with mixed emotion. And it was Christmas too, which brings everything home to families. Sarah’s friend was brave enough to do a reading during the ceremony; something specific and a difficult passage to convey. But she did it, brilliantly.

The rain was still falling, so we photographed a handful of family photographs in the ceremony room, then retired to a lounge for drinks and canapes. The air was buzzing with excited chatter amongst the wedding guests, and the canapes were coming thick and fast…as was the Prosseco! I noticed too, that several of the ladies were already sporting Pantone’s 2018 official colour. Time was moving on, but the rain was going nowhere. Sarah, Rich and myself headed downstairs for a few couple photographs in and around the venue.

Armed with a small off-camera flashgun and fifteen minutes to create some portraits in the atmospheric lobby and mezzanine, we were off and running. Still no chance of going outside, we didn’t care and had sime fun…in the dry. I used a combination of 20mm, 24mm and 35mm lenses for the portraits – all natural light with a splash of flash to boost them.

Winter weddings in Manchester

Soon we were back upstairs as the guests were taking their places in the stunning, candlelit dining room. The reception looked stunning and very ‘Christmassy’. As the guests gathered, this almost intimate wedding was looking very nice through the Nikons.Very nice indeed. The champagne was being poured as Sarah & Rich entered the room, to thunderous cheering and applause. I left the guests in peace until the speeches. I was expecting a rollercoaster of emotion, and got it. Sarah’s dad was very brave and tried to do the traditional father of the bride speech, but, understandably it was all too much. It was too much for me, to try and remain neutral and just do my job. But when you have a daughter of your own, it is very difficult. Suddenly Rich and Best Man jumped into action and made us all laugh again. The mono image of Sarah & her dad hugging is one of the most moving images I have ever taken, and one I find difficult to look at.

Wedding DJ in Manchester

After the speeches, we were all outside to brave the Manchester eweather. The canopies were overhead, the heaters were on and the coffee and hot chocolate in full flow. There were even blankets for the ‘southerners’ to wrap up warm in, 😉 After a while we were back inside. Full on cake cutting, first dance and general dancefloor malarkey – all handled brilliantly by DJ NIck Campbell.

Unique Manchester Wedding Venue

Occasionally I get to be an On The 7th Wedding Photographer. On The 7th Private Members Club is one of my favourite wedding venues to work at. Weddings at On The 7th are always great fun. The venue is situated in the heart of Media City, flanked by the BBC, and just over the water from ITV and ‘Corrie’. Sarah, Matty and the rest of the staff run the weddings with clockwork precision, and always with a smile.I get to be an On The 7th wedding photographer a few times every year, and each wedding brings a different element to the photography. Whether it is Summer or Winter, the venue and my clients create a unique experience as an On The 7th wedding photographer. Katie & Paul’s wedding was no different. Theirs was to a be a brilliant day, full of fun and emotion, and as clients they were just brilliant to work with. They never stopped smiling all day!

Wedding day preparations

I joined Katie and her girls at The Holiday Inn, right behind On The 7th. It had been a good year or so since we’d last met up in Lancashire, and Katie looked like she was gong to constantly burst with excitement. With her mum and three bridesmaids, plus little daughter Poppy as a flowergirl, the hotel suite was bustling. Dad made a quick appearance but thought against staying too long! It was brilliant to have some space and light, and not be cramped in a dingy yellow-walled hotel room with just the one light bulb 😉 I had time enough to pop over and catch up with Paul, who was busy tasting a gin-based present from Katie. Well, it’d be rude not too.

Manchester Wedding Video

It was a pleasure (always is) to work alongside the talented Charlene from Love Gets Sweeter Films. Charlene is brilliant at what she does, and is like my little (media) sister. She works in a similar way to myself too, which really helps us capture the wedding day with no fuss. Nope, not from us.

Manchester Wedding Ceremony

I wandered round to the Holiday Inn to catch Katie and the girls walking round to the venue. I had time to stop for a quick chat with football legend John Hartson, who had just been on Football Focus. As the ceremony time approached, Katie and the wedding party walked around the corner from the Holiday Inn. Being an On The 7th Wedding Photographer, I love this part of the day. Five minutes to walk and photograph the bride and bridesmaids live, plus a couple of posed shots thrown in to steady the nerves a little….theirs, not mine…;-) Paul was patiently waiting inside for the bridesmaids to make their way down the aisle, one by one. It was Poppy though who stole the show. She ran to the end of the aisle and stopped…for quite a while…just taking it all in….before running back to daddy for a good luck hug.

Colour Wedding Photos

These days I much prefer colour to mono, though I do still provide a good mix of the two in a wedding collection. I simply love working in atmospheric mixed lighting, with the challenges thrown up. My clients have often said the same – they tend to prefer my colour images to mono; they have a film-like quality to them, be they inside or out. I’m looking forward to the November and December weddings then! After the speeches we went out again for a few minutes. Got photobombed, got blown around, but got the shots….including that silhouette.

Wedding Speeches

Wedding speeches are always great to photograph. Not knowing the content, I’m always on the look out for reactions and emotion. As an On The 7th Wedding Photographer, I love photographing the speeches in The Pantry here. Lots of strong directional light in Summer. Candlelight in the winter. See Rachel & Chris’ December wedding to see what I mean. The speeches at Katie & Paul’s wedding were both funny and emotional. A proper rollercoaster ride you might say. Sometimes it’s difficult not to be pulled in, but I have to remind myself constantly that I am not a guest, so I can get the images. After the speeches, we had time for a quick walk arond Media City. Katie and Paul wanted a silhouette shot of some kind. OK then…

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…’

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!

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…

Celebrating The Wedding of Jude & Daz at The Castlefield Rooms

“Amazing day captured by your outstanding photography expertise and talent….Thank you very much!”

Judith and Darren – aka Jude & Daz were married recently at The Castlefield Rooms in Manchester. The perfect venue for an urban, city centre wedding, I was really pleased to be working back there producing the couple’s Castlefield Rooms Wedding Photography. It was Manchester after all…so we got the perfect ‘Manchester Rain’ for this July day! Ah well….this was never going to put us off… 😉

The day started by my dropping in on Jude and the girls at The Hilton, finding them in the very capable hands of top Make Up Artist Sonara Parker, and much in-demand hair stylist Duncan Fisher. Talking of capable hands – it was great working with Ben again from Wedding Videography Manchester.

Daz and Best Man Pete were getting ready a few floors below the girls, taking next to no time at all to get ready, apart from the buttonholes. Always a challenge this one!

So with the rian in full tilt, we headed off to The Castlefield Rooms and Dukes ’92 to meet and greet the guests arriving. The bridesmaids and Jude weren’t far behind…let it rain!
