Last month I photographed Suzann & Mark’s fantastic wedding at Manchester Town Hall, followed by their fun-filled reception at Stock Restaurant in Manchester city centre.

I started off by taking photographs of Suzann as she got ready in The Radisson Edwardian Hotel, just a short walk away from Manchester Town Hall, before walking to meet Mark and his groomsmen as they enjoyed a touch of Dutch courage in a nearby pub;-)

Suzann looked absolutely stunning in her beautiful wedding dress and you could feel the emotion as she walked down the aisle to the string quartet playing Elbow’s ‘One Day Like This’. The ceremony ended with Suzann’s brother conducting a short Jewish blessing for Suzann & Mark, a really nice personal way to conclude the ceremony.

After the wedding ceremony, Suzann, Mark and I walked from Manchester Town Hall to Stock Restaurant.  I really enjoyed this part of the day as it gave us a chance to take lots of cool wedding photographs around Manchester city centre! It was also fun to see the reactions of Saturday afternoon shoppers as a bride and groom walked by them on Deansgate:-)

Suzann & Mark – thank you very much again for asking me to cover your wedding photographer. It was a pleasure working with you and I am really pleased that you are both so happy with your photographs.  I wish you both all the very best for your future together:-)

Here are a selection of my favourite wedding photographs from your day:

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of covering Laura & Simon’s fantastic wedding at Chancellors Hotel in Manchester:-)

I had only photographed one wedding at the Chancellors Hotel before this wedding and I was really looking forward to going back.  For a venue which is very close to Manchester city centre, it has fantastic spacious grounds which is perfect for wedding photography.  It is also nice to work at a wedding venue which is very close to home!

Laura & Simon were extremely relaxed throughout the whole day and everybody has a fantastic time.  The weather wasn’t always perfect but the sun came out to say hello quite a few times throughout the day.  Ironically, although brides usually want beautiful blue skies, the perfect weather for wedding photography (in my opinion) is overcast days with moody skies, which is just what we had!  The only potential problem during the day was when I managed to slip during the group shots and went flying …camera in hand.  Luckily, my instincts took over and I managed to injure only myself rather than my camera – I got my priorities right!;-)

Laura & Simon, thank you very much again for asking me to photograph your wedding. It was a pleasure working with you and I wish you both a very long and happy future together:-)
