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.

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…

30 James Street Wedding

A 30 James Street Wedding is always one to look forward to. 30 James Street Hotel is a fantastic themed hotel in the heart of Liverpool. Once the main office for the White Star Company- the owners of the RMS Titanic, 30 James Street is steeped in tradition…and style. The interior design is stunning, with a brilliant 6th floor ‘Carpathian Champagne Bar‘ complete with balcony overlooking the city. Here’s what the 30 James Street Hotel website says –

“30 James Street is a historic building constructed between 1896 and 1898. The stunning Grade II* listed building is situated on the corner of James Street and The Stand and offers incredible views across Liverpool’s Pier Head, the docklands and the famous Three Graces. The building was built for the Ismay, Imrie and Company shipping company, which later became the White Star Line. This building was the hub of the RMS Titanic and where the ship received its orders. The grand White Star Grand Hall was originally used as the first class lounge and ticketing office for the White Star Shipping company and to this day still offers guests a first class experience. The hall has been fully restored to its former glory with high, opulent ceilings and incredible period features…”

Helen & Alex’s wedding was in December. I love winter weddings and the challenges the weather (and venue) can bring. Luckily the day was bright and dry. Bonus! We were on a tight schedule though, so time spent on bridal preparations was limited. Here’s some highlights from Helen & Alex’s stunning 30 James Street Wedding…

City Centre Wedding

I love a city centre wedding, be it in Manchester, Chester or York. My job takes me around the UK, working at some fantastic venues, but I am especially partial to a good urban wedding 😉 And I love 30 James Street Hotel as a city centre wedding venue. Just a stone’s throw across the main road, we have Pier Head, with lots of scope for couple photos. I tend to be a 30 James Street Wedding Photographer a few times each year, and each visit always fills me with inspiration.

Wedding Photos in Liverpool

From the ceremony, we were off for twenty minutes or so. Being December, it wasn’t exactly warm, so we had to move quickly! A quick stroll across the main road and we were outside the Royal Liver Building. Travelling light with 24-70mm, 35mm  and 85mm lenses, we got the couples photos ‘in the bag’ before our lovely bride Helen turned blue… 😉

Crazy Bear Stadhampton Wedding Photographer

Kat & Glynne’s highlights from this unique Oxford wedding venue

Crazy Bear Stadhampton Wedding

Kat & Glynne hired me to be their Crazy Bear Stadhampton Wedding Photographer – my first wedding of 2017. This was to be one of my weddings where I meet my clients on the day – no fuss, few emails, and a couple of phone calls. Sorted. The Crazy Bear Stadhampton is a very popular wedding venue – part of a very funky, award-winning group of hotels. This is taken from their website:

“The original Crazy Bear has been entertaining guests since its creation in 1993. Abundant gardens, eclectic design, award winning dining and inventive facilities, within eighty acres of working farmland all contribute to its distinctive personality.

The Crazy Bear Stadhampton is a unique oasis in the countryside, and is the foundation for our Crazy Bear culture”.

Unique Oxford wedding venue

The Crazy Bear Stadhampton is a unique Oxford wedding venue, where each room seemingly has it’s own theme, from Thai, through Scandinavian, Traditional and Burlesque. It’s a brilliant venue for an Oxford Wedding, and offers a lot of scope for a Crazy Bear Stadhampton Wedding Photographer.

Wedding guests at The Crazy Bear Stadhampton

As my schedule allowed, I caught up with Glynne and the guests in the bar area. The fun, laughter and all-round atmosphere was beginning to rise. I said my hellos to Glynne and his two children, then quietly got on with it. Glynne is brilliant fun and enjoyed having a laugh with all the wedding guests as they arrived at The Crazy Bear Stadhampton.

Crazy Bear Stadhampton Bride

With a quick change of location, from the log cabin to a master themed suite, it was time for Kat and the girls to get dressed. The velour-lined walls were black, with a dark carpet and little in terms of downlighters. I used a touch of bounced flash to add some ‘fill’ to Kat’s bridal portraits and was very pleased with the results. Simple, stylish and very ‘me’. Kat made a perfect Crazy Bear Stadhampton Bride.

Weddings at The Crazy Bear Stadhampton

The weather was turning for the worse, sadly…but we didn’t care! It was a short walsk…around ten paces from the suite to the entrance of the ceremony room, giving us chance for a few final portraits before the ceremony. Weddings at The Crazy Bear Stadhampton are  intimate, with little to no room for using long lenses. For the photographers out there I was on 20mm, 24mm and 35mm primes. Yep, that intimate!

Wedding Photos at The Crazy Bear

With the rain a constant heavy drizzle by now, we were lucky to be under cover for most of our ten minute couple portraits. With a quick drop of the umbrella and a handful of quick shots, we nailed it, before moving back inside to photograph some family and friends group photos, plus some classic portraits of Kat.

Wedding Speeches at The Crazy Bear

With the daylight fading quickly, we were into the wedding breakfast and speeches. With the traditional three, plus an extra speech from Kat’s sister Taila, the laughter and fun spilled on for another hour or so. Brilliant. The Best Man suitably ripped Glynne apart, comparing his ‘mediocre achievements at school’  to BAFTA Award-winning sister Nicky – the TV Director on Strictly Come Dancing none the less….

Eaves Hall Winter Wedding

Sarah & Michael commissioned me to photograph their winter wedding at Eaves Hall in the Ribble Valley. Eaves Hall is one of the very best, and most popular (as a result) wedding venues in the North West. Us wedding photographers love the venue too; it has everything – character, charm, atmosphere,  landscaped gardens…and (everybody’s favourite) Barry, the Event Manager – running the day with the utmost professionalism. Good to see you again, sir.

Award-winning Make Up Artist

Sarah was in the very good hands of Sonara Parker – one of the busiest MUA’s in the north of England. She should be too, having won The Wedding Industry Awards for the past two years. Sarah and her bridesmaids had the first part of their preparations down in the Lodge, then walked up through the misty January morning to the Hall for final touches and to get dressed.

Scottish Wedding in Lancashire

Michael and the groomsmen arrived wearing family tartan. Though Michael is a Lancashire lad, he chose to honour his Scottish roots. Very fetching it was too, seeing this beautifully misty day looked set to stay. Michael brought his dog along too for the wedding. Why not?

Eaves Hall Weddings

Weddings at Eaves Hall are always fabulous, whatever the weather. The mist was obviously not budging so Sarah and I decided to make it a ‘Wuthering Heights’ type of day, and using the atmospheric winter conditions to our advantage. I insisted on being called Mr Darcy though, for the whole afternoon… 😉

From the ceremony and after-drinks, it was outside for ten minutes’ of family group photos. Once completed, Sarah, Michael and I wandered off for fifteen more minutes, using the mist as part of the couples photos. We could almost have been in Scotland…

Lancashire Wedding Speeches

The speeches were brilliant – funny, embarrassing (for Sarah & Michael obviously!) and above all, heartf-felt. On schedule, the speeches were done and the wedding breakfast began. The dining room looked stunning, as the daylight started to fade to dusk and the candles did their job. ‘Mr Darcy’ retired for an hour or so before the cake cutting and first dance…

Classic Eaves Hall Wedding Photography

When photographing at Eaves Hall, it’s ‘de rigueure’ to capture the couple outside the stunning Georgian building at night. As cold as it was, and as pitch dark too – we nailed the shot in five minutes…then it was inside for some dancing…

Kira & James had their fantastic winter wedding at Mitton Hall recently, allowing me this opportunity of demonstrating my being a Mitton Hall Winter Wedding Photographer. Completely different to a summer wedding, the light is low and crisp (where available) and the whole atmosphere of the wedding seems to be more intimate and ‘focused’. With seven bridesmaids getting ready, Kira’s preparation’s were full of laughter and banter…especially you Natalie 😉

…with a quick chat to the registrars, all was good to go. The guests entered the ceremony room and took to their seats. Meanwhile an almost-bursting Kira was coming down the stairs in the main hall, and taking station with the bridesmaids…
