Manchester Wedding Photography
When Maria and Alex got in touch about their wedding they told me they had planned for a slightly alternative Wedding, something a little bit different and with a break from the usual wedding traditions.
Manchester Registry office and onto the Gand Pacific
The ceremony itself was held at Manchester Registry office, a small intimate wedding with close friends and family joining the bride and groom in their celebration of marriage. Although intimate it didn’t mean family hadn’t travelled, I met with family that had travelled from Mexico, Los Angeles and… West Didsbury! After the ceremony it was a short walk, or taxi ride around to Manchesters Grand Pacific bar and restaurant for a few drinks and a meal. This was the first time I had been in the bar and it did not disappoint, as a photographer the lighting was perfect, large windows allowing natural light to flood in combined with the wonderful orange glow from tungsten bulbs.
Wedding Reception at the Living Room, Manchester
After the post ceremony drinks on the Thursday I left the family to it whilst they enjoyed their meal and a catch up. I re-united with the party again on Saturday night at ‘The Living Room’ on Deansgate. this was a slightly bigger event, yes close family and friends gathered again but this time joined by a larger circle of friends.
The evening started of relatively quiet, groups formed around the room chatting, when the bride and groom arrived they were me by well wishers and a shower of confetti. then some speeches, then some Tequila!
It was when the Tequila showed its face that things started to change and a distinct party atmosphere hit the room! more drinks were poured, champagne corks popped and the tequila seemed to just keep appearing!
Then the music got louder, and a little more traditional Mexican, as the tequila kept coming and the dance floor got a little more lively, and more still and more still, a photography dance floor dream as my camera flashed away into the night!
I wasn’t there to document Sunday, but I’m pretty sure a few people won’t need any photographs to remember how they felt that morning!
Maria & Alex received the full set of images but here is a selection of the highlights:
