On The 7th Wedding
Rachel & Chris’ wedding at this unique Media City venue
Media City Wedding Venue
On The 7th is a brilliant wedding venue, situated next door to the BBC in Media City. If you’re a fan of urban weddings, you’ll simply love this wedding venue. This was to be my third wedding at On The 7th – with several more coming in 2017 too. Cannot wait. Rachel & Chris’ wedding was photographed almost entirely on fast prime lenses, making the most of the meagre available December light. Rachel was getting ready next door in the Holiday Inn, so I caught up with Chris and the lads for a slow, calm start to the day….perfect.
Unique Manchester Wedding Venue
As the guests started to arrive at this unique wedding venue, the buzz around On The 7th started to rise. With my small window of opportunity, I grabbed a couple of images of the registrar interviews then headed ‘south’ to meet Rachel and the girls, as they walked around from the hotel. Rachel was laughing. A lot. And didn’t stop laughing all day. That’s ALL day…
Media City Weddings and Events
As the ceremony finished (which, incidentally ran over a few minutes to allow for the continuous laughter throughout!), and the confetti thrown, we aereonto stage two of the day – the wedding celebrations at On The 7th. Everbody was in high spirits – not quite matching the new Mrs Poole ‘on the scale’, but fairly close. This Media City Wedding was going to be noisy, full of fun and organised chaos. It didn’t disappoint.
Sam Fitton Magician
It was brilliant to catch up with Sam Fitton again, wowing everybody (and me…and I’ve worked with him a few times!) with his table magic. Still the best around in the North West, Sam’s enthusiasm and skill make for a truly memorable experience. The guests were blown away with his repertoire. And still the Nikons picked nothing up as to how he does it!
Intimate Lighting Wedding Speeches
As the guests were seated for the wedding breakfast, speeches were first. And as the lights dimmed, I found myself working in some of the lowest lighting levels I’ve ever experienced at a wedding. I love winter weddings, and working in low light, so this was going to be a proper test. The Nikons handled things perfectly, aided by a 24mm and a 50mm prime lens on each, to handle the conditions. For the photographers, there was a four stop difference in exposure from ether end of the room. Pah! Luxury… 🙂
From the emotion, the laughter and general chaos of the speeches, we were soon into the cake cutting and first dance. Entertainment for the gig was to be the very talented The DeeVines.
You can tell how dark it was….the best man is lit with a mobile phone. Awesome!
As the wedding guests joined the band on the dancefloor, the DeeVines kept the floor packed with non-stop groove and soul.
