How in the world is it July (nearly August, yikes!) already?? Wedding season literally just crept up on us and we are well and truly underway with an incredible wedding season. And I cannot tell you how amazed I am and how lucky I feel to get to photograph such unique, stylish, emotional weddings. 2017 is really only halfway through and already I know it's one for the record books!
So after neglecting this blog for a month or so, I'm thrilled to kick things back off with the outrageously chic and stylish King Street Townhouse wedding of Rob & Elizabeth from the end of April. I LOVE Manchester City Centre weddings and the challenge of showing off the varied architecture, the industrial grit, the steel greys and monochrome landscape and juxtaposing the softness and elegance of lace and beading and flowers. You may remember the gorgeous and hilarious Rob & Liz from their Chester town centre engagement shoot back at the end of last year. Rob kept Liz and I in stitches and their wedding day was no different, capped off with one of the funniest and most heartfelt groom's speeches I've heard to date!
Liz and Rob are so in love with our beautiful city and really wanted to show it off on their wedding day, entrusting me to capture their vision as a love letter to Manchester. After their beautiful and super emotional wedding ceremony performed by the wonderful Louise of the Ceremony Company (seriously, not a dry eye in the house!), we ventured out onto King Street and had a bit of a play with the doorways and alleys and archways. These two are SO MUCH FUN and truly game for anything I threw at them, even cheesy old-Hollywood kisses. When we arrived back to the unreal King Street Townhouse, the dining room was set for their guests with elegant ivory peonies and silver touches relfected in the hundreds of candles. Florists Verdure seriously outdid themselves, it was absolutely stunning! The room opened up to a terrace with a spectacular view of Manchester Town Hall and our awesome skyline. Later in the evening, just at twilight we were given the chance to head up to the hotel's rooftop where we managed to sneak a few more shots and take in the waning remains of the day.
I cannot tell you how special this wedding was and I must say a massive thank you to the wonderful Mr. & Mrs. Pringle for welcoming me and trusting me to do their gorgeous wedding day justice. It was such an incredible honour. Here's a bit of what we got up to, enjoy!
