We love a city wedding and this Manchester City Centre Wedding was no exception.
Jade & Thomas love the city-scene (and Starbucks!), so what better place to tie the knot than The Lowry Hotel, a very slick, bright and vibrant venue with it’s very own iconic bridge right outside – perfect!
We arrived at the church to meet Tony and Sara from Marry Me Films who we can totally recommend :) Thomas was obviously much more laid back about his arrival, appearing minutes before the bride! Thomas was a photographers dream come true, he won my award for being the most emotional groom EVER… eye’s streaming, chin wobbling and he couldn’t even look at Jade for the first five minutes bless! :) The priest (who was the spitting image of Christopher Lee) even tried settling him down.
We shot Jade and Thomas’ signing frame image at The Lowry a few weeks before taking full advantage of the magnificent iconic bridge, we also shot a rather ‘gritty’ and dynamically lit portrait utilising an old battered and flaky-painted door… they loved this one! So, for there portrait sesh on the wedding day we took advantage of some of Manchester’s darkest narrow alleys and streets we could find, together with their favourite haunt – Spinningfields. All this gave their wedding day a unique flavour… a huge change from stately homes and lush gardens we’re mostly accustomed to.
Another first for us….Singing Waiters! Between courses these guys sprung into action, with some great moves and singing from the bride and groom too! All the guests loved this extra surprise entertainment which made for a fantastic atmosphere that carried on well into the night!
Congratulations Jade & Thomas :)
