Andrea & Luke - A Quirky/Cool Didsbury House Hotel Wedding - Manchester Wedding Photography

There is something so special about developing a relationship with a venue - or series of venues as the case may be with the Eclectic Hotel group. This collection of STUNNING Manchester wedding venues, perfectly placed in both the city centre and in the leafy, quirky suburb of Didsbury has been designed with impeccable style but even more than that - they exude warmth and accessibility. Whilst some luxury wedding venues or hotels can almost feel cold and unattainable in their grandeur, The Eclectic Hotels never sacrifice comfort and ease of use PLUS respect for the spaces’ individual histories. Great John Street Hotel, tucked into a quiet corner off Deansgate was once a school and the names of the individual suites and rooms reflect and pay homage to this fact. King Street Townhouse is large and grand and such a gorgeous reflection of modern (that rooftop infinity pool!) and Georgian (that tiled floor! The rich sumptuous wallpaper and books and so much art) and, perhaps my very favourite to spend the day at, the wonderfully cosy Didsbury House Hotel - alongside it’s sister venue Eleven Didsbury Park, once private residences and now transformed into exclusive-use wedding venues that wrap you up and make you feel like you’re throwing a big fat house party for your very favourite people….this combined with perfect customer service and an events team that are tack-sharp but completely at your service and your wedding will be in only the safest of hands.

So when Andrea and Luke got in touch with me and filled me in on their plans for their October Didsbury House Hotel wedding, I was THERE. With nods to the time of year in Andrea’s stunning champagne wedding dress and autumnal bouquet, plus bridesmaids in varying green dresses of their choosing, vans for the groomsmen and a few surprises along the way, I had an absolute ball capturing this incredible Didsbury House Hotel wedding. The things that were the most important to Luke & Andrea were the music, the food (pies!), the giant cheese wedding cake and spending the day surrounded by their amazing and hilarious extended friendship circle. The ceremony felt intimate and emotional and we cheered the happy new Mr. & Mrs French with a truly epic confetti shot! When it came time to photograph the bridal party, we had an absolute ball because this group was so close-knit and were truly up for anything I threw at them! I then snuck this beautiful pair off to the amazing Fletcher Moss park for some magical golden hour wedding portraits.

Andrea & Luke were so warm and welcoming and I seriously did not stop laughing all day - their pleasure was just so infectious and everything I LOVE about weddings. Thank you so much for welcoming me into the fold guys, I had a ball! Here’s a bit of what we got up to…
