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 among 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!

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!

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.

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… 😉

hilton manchester

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 (http://www.weddingvideographymanchester.co.uk/).

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!

The Midland Wedding Photography

Donna & Mark’s wedding at The Midland in Manchester

Here is an example of The Midland wedding photography I produced in August for Donna & Mark. Hailing from North Manchester, the couple were married at their local church – St Mary’s in Failsworth. Donna’s preparations were undertaken at The Midland – a lively affair with the bridesmaids and mum all forming an orderly queue for their turn ‘in the chair’ 😉 Donna’s dad sat quietly in the next room, trying to switch off from the giggles and general chaos going on in the main suite. I spent a good hour or so with the girls as well-wishers came and went, the flowers arrived…as did a concerned brother with ‘buttonhole problems’ – you know, the usual stuff that goes on during the hustle and bustle of wedding day preparations. Timed to perfection, I left The Midland to catch up with Sean Peters, who was on video duties. I’ve worked with Sean a couple of times, and can thoroughly recommend him, his work and jovial sarcasm…a good lad to have around on Wedding Days..

All went swimmingly in church, with quiet, almost military-precision, helped by a brilliant priest, who ‘allowed us to do our

job, while he did his…’ Thank you. But then a spanner was thrown into the works; heading back into Manchester, to The

Midland was not going to be easy. The roads surrounding the venue were closed due to a march, so navigating through town was tricky to say the least. That’s the good thing about shooting weddings ‘live’ and relatively unstaged. I had to think on my feet for a location to shoot some formal images, as close to the hotel as possible before the road blocks…hmmm. Tricky, but the Hotspur Press building came to mind. I’ve never shot it before, but thought the aged, crumbling purple walls would look great as an urban backdrop. And it did. Not bad, seeing as we literally had only 10 minutes to shoot everything. Stripes. Earned. 😉

Back at The Midland, normal service was quickly resumed with a few family groups shots, plus uninterrupted wedding breakfast, speeches and first dance….all live and ‘happening’, without me having to even speak to anybody, apart from Sarky Sean…. 😉

Nikon D3s and D700 cameras were on duty for this one, coupled with 24-70mm, 85mm, and 35mm lenses…and as ever, your feedback is welcomed.

If you’re planning to get married at The Midland, why not get in touch to view more of my work over a coffee?

Katie and Andrew were married recently at Christ Church in Friezland, with a reception at The White Hart in Lydgate; allowing me to share with you an example of my White Hart Lydgate wedding photography, sourced and commissioned from finding my work featured in Little White Books.

white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography01white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography02white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography03

When I arrived at Katie’s house, she was (literally) in the safe hands of talented make up artist Nina Wren, along with her four bridesmaids. With clockwork precision, the flowers duly arrived, safely delivered in the now famous Red Floral Architecture van, and Mat and the team yet again didn’t fail to impress everyone with the ‘wow’ factor only they produce – sounds cheesy, but it’s true. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – nobody comes close to Mat and the team when they’re in full tilt on a wedding. The arrangements – both at the venue, and the church plus the overall design and ‘feel’  is just stunning. Maybe one day, somebody will prove me wrong… 😉 Whilst I was at Kate HQ, my colleague Jason was a mile or two down the road with the groomsmen. Between us, the four Nikons and a bag full of prime lenses, we were busy from the word go…

white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography04white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography05white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography06white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography07white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography08white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography09white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography10white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography11white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography12white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography13white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography14white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography15white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography16

A phone call from the Far East, half expected came in as Katie was halfway through her makeup and hair preparations. Totally live and unstaged, I love this shot of Kate talking to her friend on speakerphone! With me on videography duties was John Wilson – highly regarded as a top quality wedding videographer.

white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography17

Meanwhile back at Andrew HQ, the usual ‘stress’ of positioning and fastening buttonholes was well underway. I’m asked every week…I still don’t know! 😉

white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography18white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography19white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography20white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography21

I rarely work with a second photographer, unless client requests, or geographics dictate. This was one occasion where  client wanted more time spent ‘on camera’ with both her and Andrew, so I got to spend some quality time shooting some natural portraits of Kate as she was ready to leave for Church…

Wedding cars came via Horgan’s – and what else to drive Katie than this little number with her name on the side! A top choice, expertly driven by Steve! (Well, he never gets a mention…)

white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography32white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography33white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography34white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography35

Katie was played down the aisle in style by Dobcross Youth Band. Unique, and a brilliant touch to the day, the sound of brass seemed perfectly apt for the wedding ceremony. The church organ sat quietly waiting for the hymns and the playout for the end…

white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography36white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography37white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography38white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography39white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography40white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography41white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography42white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography43

From a brilliantly paced ceremony, overseen by Fr Chris Halliday – who, incidentally allowed the photographers and videographers full reign to do their job…which we did, expertly and unobtrusively, keeping the attention on the happy couple and not us. As it should be… 😉

white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography44white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography45white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography46white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography47white_hart_lydgate_wedding_photography48

From church, it was a whistle-stop trip to a small vantage point overlooking Saddleworth for a few formal images. Great fun trying to get Kate over a style surrounded by barbed wire. Proper trooper though, that lass – nailed it perfectly without even a spot of mud on her beautiful dress! Battling the early afternoon sun, I opted for a bit of fill-flash. Not my usual style, but perfectly fitting for Kate and Andrew’s style of wedding coverage.

After thirty minutes, we were at The White Hart for the reception, played in by a stunning string quartet – the happy couple, not me! Then off to the wedding breakfast room, stunning and typical of Red Floral Architecture….a mini hanging gardens of Babylon. Just beautiful – and I know nowt about flowies… 😉

With the wedding breakfast and speeches finished, we, yet again – jumped a wall and a style / barbed wire fence combination for a few sunset images….and the video cameramen had to come along too, cameras, tripods, all over the dry stone wall….organised chaos, but well worth it. Thanks Kate & Andrew (again).

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…
