Being a Manchester wedding photographer at the Midland Hotel is always a big deal. Its such an icon Manchester building!❤
I currently live in Edenfield, Lancashire. I love all being in the sticks (as city folk say!). Although I am originally a MANC born & bred. I spent all of my teenage years & most of early twenties enjoying this wonderful City. There was a brief spell away from my beloved Manc, while I studying photography in the North East, & travelling in Europe & America. Although I would say all my early adult memories, are of working in different restaurants & bars in the city. Including the original Temple Bar ( underground urinal, turned into a bar!) before the now famous Northern Quarter was even around. Lots of partying at Ritz, Rockworld & The Hacienda. So Manchester truly does hold a very special place in heart.
My first taste of photography was also in the city. As my secondary school was just 1/2 mile away from the centre. When studying my GCSE aged 15, I would be found wandering around the streets of Manchester photographing graffiti walls & incredible buildings; learning to be CREATIVE WITH A LENS!.
Midland Hotel Weddings
The Midland is such an icon hotel in Manchester for many reasons. Its a stunning 1920’s Art Deco inspired design building. The architecture is so unique, that you can’t help but notice it. It was also the meeting place of Mr Rolls & Mr Royce – yes the partnership that created the world famous Rolls Royce car was formed here. To me it was a place that as a small child i was always in awe of. It seemed so grand that only very rich people could ever go inside; and here I am, a Manchester wedding photographer at the Midland Hotel – made it:)
Christina & Michael’s wedding was an intimate affair with just close family for most of the day, switching to a big parry with lots of friends & family for the evening. These guys are both very stylish and their wedding styling reflected just that. We split the portraits into a walk around the library and town hall after the ceremony. Then another 10 minutes around the hotel after dinner. Capturing a great mix of urban & deco portraits. Their party was a complete blast!. I was able to capture some great dance floor antics and plenty of tipsy expressions. Taking me right back to MY MANCHESTER nights out!
