City Centre Wedding Photography
Manchester city centre wedding photography is always a favourite of mine. I love weddings in city centres and have been lucky enough to have shot in Manchester, Leeds, London and New York (see more about Andy and Anna’s Central Park wedding photography) so when I was booked to photograph Rachel and Gary’s Manchester city centre wedding photography I was delighted. Rachel and Gary had picked one of my favourite venues, Manchester Town Hall for their wedding with good reason. They had their first date in Albert Square outside the Town Hall, Gary had proposed on the same spot so it was only natural that they were married in the same place where it all began!
Rachel and Gary were married on a Tuesday as they both work shifts, so the city was in full swing when I arrived at Roomzzz Manchester to shoot the bridal preparation. It was a lovely late summers day in Manchester (highly unusual I know!) as I walked over to Manchester Town Hall to catch up with Gary. It was also nice to see a friendly face at the wedding with an old workmate of mine, Darren, being Gary’s best man! It was a lovely relaxed marriage service as always with the superb registrars in Manchester, before we had bubbles and confetti as Rachel and Gary left the Town Hall.
Albert Square Chop House Reception
It wasn’t far to travel for the guests with the reception at Albert Square Chop House, a mere one minute walk across Albert Square. Whilst the guests made their way over Rachel and Gary joined me in Manchester Town Hall for some natural, relaxed couple photos. After 15 minutes we made our way over to Albert Sqaure Chop House where the speeches kicked off the wedding breakfast. As the sun had set over the city we did a handful of formals in Albert Square after the meal and then spent a couple of minutes outside Bootle Street Police Station to grab a couple of photos in the dark.
Back inside Albert’s Chop House the guests were enjoying a drink or two before Rachel and Gary kicked off the night celebrations with their first dance. I thoroughly enjoyed shooting Rachel and Gary’s Manchester city centre wedding photography and I can’t wait to return to the amazing Manchester Town Hall later this year. It really is one of the most beautiful venues in the city and a huge favourite of mine.
So here’s Rachel and Gary’s Manchester City Centre wedding photography. Music by Anna of the North, photos by me…
