The Lowry Theatre Wedding Venue

Rebecca & Mike were married at The Lowry recently, allowing me to show more of my Lowry Theatre Wedding Photography. The Lowry Theatre is a fantastic modern wedding venue – very funky and unique. Here are some of the images from their big day…

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 images

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….

lowry-theatre-wedding-photographer092 lowry-theatre-wedding-photographer095 lowry-theatre-wedding-photographer094

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!

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!

The Lowry Wedding Photography

Revisited – Alex & James’ brilliant wedding at The Lowry . The couple asked me to produce their Lowry Theatre Wedding Photography, and it’s a total no-brainer. How could I refuse? I love working at The Lowry. A totally unique wedding venue, and being primarily a Manchester Wedding Photographer, I really enjoy photographing urban, funky weddings.

I met Alex and her girls at a nearby hotel, where they were getting ready. The church was to be Our Lady & The Apostles in Stockport, which limited my time with the girls somewhat – but we had a plan, and everything was running like clockwork.

I arrived at church slightly early, and caught up with James and the guests as they arrived. The excitement was building now – James’ university mates were winding him up and cracking jokes, but he took it all in good stride. He had no choice really…

Alex arrived bang on time too, and escorted by proud dad, seemingly ‘floated’ down the aisle towards a slightly nervous-looking James. The Priest was brilliant – he gave me free reign to shoot where and what I needed to. Thanks! Unusually for me, I used a 70-200mm lens on one of the Nikons. The light was good, and this setup gave me lots of scope for good images.

As Alex’ friend sang a solo in church, I caught this tearful glance…

Then we were outside into the blazing sunshine to ‘kiss a thousand cheeks’ and start the celebrations…

As the guests were making their way to The Lowry, we took the (pre-scheduled) opportunity to shoot a few informal Bride & Groom portraits. The sun was in full tilt by now – harsh and hot. Who cares! Beats the rain any day…mostly 😉

One of the guests couldn’t make the wedding, being based overseas. So, he donned a wedding suit to match the groomsmen and sent a life-sized photo cutout of himself to be at the reception…and the group shots…yes, see if you can spot him….

The Compass Room at The Lowry

Up into the Compass Room for the wedding breakfast and speeches. As the newlyweds entered the room, the blinds lowered in synch as they walked around. Clever and very effective!

The Compass Room is an amazing part of the venue, with almost 360 degrees panaromic views, and looks stunning at sunset, as the light fades and the DJ lighting starts to take over.
