Deco Decadence - A Vintage-styled Stockport Plaza Wedding Shoot

I’m so inspired by the many other people who work in the wedding industry in their various fields and will always do everything I can to find new ways to capture their genius designs. My very favourite way of doing this is to work on editorial wedding shoots. It’s been a good 18 months since I’ve had the chance to work on one but to say that I chose the right project would be the understatement of the year.

Kate McCarthy Photography Weddings 2017 Year in Review

WHAT A YEAR.  Honestly, what an unbelievable way to spend 12 months: hanging out with wonderfully warm and fun couples in beautiful environments and capturing some of their most precious memories.  I always knew that when I began this journey into wedding photography, I was heading towards something special but 2017 and the huge outpouring of support I've received from so many amazing former strangers has been completely overwhelming.

Jenna & Kristian: A Love Letter to Manchester & a Victoria Warehouse Industrial Chic Wedding

Sometimes a wedding venue comes along and it takes your freaking breath away with the scope and the potential to be extraordinary.  Victoria Warehouse, just over the bridge in Salford, first hooked me when I was lucky enough to use the space for a styled shoot in collaboration with One Stylish Day (you can check that out here).  I was so so eager to have the chance to shoot a real wedding there so imagine how thrilled I was when the WONDERFUL Jenna & Kris got in touch with me about their upcoming wedding.  Their plan was to have the whole day there, to really show off and celebrate this industrial Manchester gem of a venue and to throw a big silly party with all of their friends and family.

Ellie & Rick: A Family-filled DIY Peak District Wedding (with bonus Didsbury Wedding Party!)

Every detail of this wedding was so carefully chosen and so perfectly complementary.  Also it makes it even easier that Ellie & Rick were just two of the loveliest humans I've been lucky enough to meet in this wonderful job.  As it was a fairytale, let's start as the best ones do, at the beginning.

Zoe & Chris: A Belle Epoque Vintage Wedding

Zoe is the brains and baking behind the fabulous mobile Vintage Afternoon Tea company and hooked me with her infectious laugh and a lemon drizzle cake that I still dream about.  She had seen my work on a previous wedding and we started talking more about her big day: an old-fashioned knees up at the beautiful Belle Epoque hotel in the heart of Knutsford.

Are You Afraid of the Dark?: A Belle Epoque Wedding Workshop with Jonny Draper Photography Training

As a wedding photographer, I have a very specific set of fears that are beyond my control: that the vicar/registrar/celebrant has very specific rules for me, that the weather won't cooperate and it will be impossible to even get the cute umbrella shots and that the ceremony room will be SO. DARK. and tricky to subtly light whilst staying unobtrusive (see above vicar fears).  And the wedding industry is changing so much (in a good way!) in that weddings are now taking place year-round, not just in the super bright summer months, in unbeliavable locations and to stay relevant and current it's my job to continue expanding the tools in my toolbelt.
