Whitworth Hall Wedding Photography | Rachel + Steve

Whitworth Hall Wedding Photography

Rachel and Steve’s wedding at Whitworth Hall was the first time I have ever shot inside this wonderful venue for a wedding service. Designed by Paul Waterhouse and built between 1895 and 1902 and has a look and feel that is very similar to Manchester Town Hall, designed by Paul’s father Alfred Waterhouse. Whilst Manchester Town Hall is closed for renovations, Whitworth Hall would be the perfect place to hold a Manchester city centre wedding. Whitworth Hall is now part of The Manchester University campus and adjoins the Manchester Museum and the Christie Bistro (click on the links to see my weddings at both venues). Rachel and Steve’s wedding featured both the Museum and Bistro for their celebrations.

Christies Bistro Reception

Rachel got ready in the city centre and then made the short journey through Manchester to Whitworth Hall. Steve was relaxed as he greeted the guests before their service took place int he spectacular Whitworth Hall. The reception was held in Christie’s Bistro next door to the Hall and the laughter and hugs flowed as Rachel and Steve enjoyed the reception with their friends and family. A short session of couple photos were held outside in the grounds of Manchester University before everyone made the trip over to The Deaf Institute for the food and speeches.

The Deaf Institute Manchester

Located just off Oxford Road in Manchester, The Deaf Institute is well known location in the city for live music, with many famous bands taking to the stage at the venue on their way to stardom. It’s a great event space if you’re looking for a wedding reception venue that is anything but typically weddingy, a much cooler, urban vibe and a relaxed venue for food and cocktails. Rachel and Steve weren’t having a first dance, instead they were going to have Pinatas to kick start their party. It took a fair few strikes to break through and kick off the evening celebrations. Rachel and Steve’s Whitworth hall wedding photography was a relaxed, informal wedding day that was a fantastic day.
