Last month I had the great privilege of covering Jenny and Richard’s wedding at Manchester Town Hall and The Lowry in Salford Quays, and WOW, what a day it was!:-)

Richard and Jenny were blessed with beautiful weather the whole day and we really made the most of it by taking bride & groom wedding photographs at both Manchester Town Hall and The Lowry.  Everything went perfectly for Jenny and Richard and I couldn’t have been happier for them.  The whole wedding day was filled with laughter and smiles and it was a pleasure to be part of it:-)

Although I have covered weddings at Manchester Town Hall before, this was the first time I had taken photographs at a wedding at The Lowry in Salford Quays and I couldn’t have been more impressed with it – what a fantastic wedding venue!  The Lowry has the luxury of having an amazing, specious interior as well as having lots of outside space around Salford Quays which is perfect for wedding photography.  Manchester Town Hall is very similar in that sense so using both venues for a wedding day works extremely well from a wedding photography point of view.

Jenny & Richard – thank you so much again for asking me to be a part of your wedding day.  I was so pleased that after all your hard work in planning the day, everything went so well for you both.  It was a pleasure working with you both and I’m very pleased you are both so happy with your photographs.  I wish you a very long and happy marriage together!:-)

    jamie vickerstaff - Congratulations on the winning shot the others are all fantastic photos also; especially the gran high fiving those moments you just don’t plan for but expertly captured.

Wow, what can I say about Vanessa & Michael’s vintage wedding at The Barlow Institute in Edgworth, Lancashire?!  Vanessa and Michael had worked extremely hard to make their day the unique, fun filled, vintage theme wedding which they wanted, and what a fantastic day it was!

Vanessa & Michaels’s vintage wedding theme was apparent throughout; the from the design of the Order of Services and traditional lemonade at the ceremony, through to the tea-cups and never-ending bunting which decorated the Barlow Institute (courtesy of the hard work and patience of Vanessa’s mother!).  The reception venue itself really complimented the theme and looked amazing.

Vanessa and Michael took it in turns to travel to the wedding ceremony at the beautiful St Anne’s Church in Chapeltown in their own special wedding bus – how cool is that?!:-) St Anne’s is a stunning church, set back in it’s own grounds, high in the hills of Lancashire.  It was a pleasure to take wedding photographs there.  After the wedding ceremony, Vanessa & Michael, and all their guests, boarded their wedding bus again to travel to their reception at The Barlow Institute.

The wedding reception started with a live band and traditional irish céilí dancing, a great way to get the party started – and a great opportunity for wedding photographs!

Vanessa & Michael – I am so pleased you had such a special day, and it was a privilege to be part of it.  It was a pleasure working with you both and I am really pleased you are so happy with your wedding photographs. I wish you both a very long and happy marriage together:-)

Thank you again for asking me to be your Manchester wedding photographer.  Here are a selection of my favourite photographs from your day:
