Manchester Wedding Photographer
HIP, QUIRKY, ALTERNATIVE FUN WEDDING VENUES
So much choice!
As a Manchester Wedding Photographer I absolutely love getting the chance to work at some of the best and most amazing Manchester Wedding Venues. I love the streets. I love the cocktail and craft bars, the cafes and the independent restaurants and all the vibrancy of the city. It's such an unbelievable spectrum and works so well as backdrop for your wedding images. So definitely got to say you've made an incredible choice in having a Manchester wedding!
Also because I specialise in capturing adventurous couples just having fun in in environments where they feel comfortable and you've chosen this great city to hold your wedding that means either this place is fully apart of who you are as a couple and what you want your wedding to feel like. So if your venue is in one of the surrounding halls or smack bang in bar in the city centre I'm fully on board to be your Manchester Wedding Photographer

I know this may seem like an obvious one. You've found your dream venue on Instagram and can't stop looking through their gallery. You don't need to look at any other venues. You just want to hand over your money and book!

Try and envisage how your Manchester Wedding Photography pictures will look and just get a feel for it all! We all know what weather in Manchester is like. We can pray to the gods for a sunny forecast but just in case it does hammer it down make sure you've happy with the interior of the venue and the aesthetics of the environment close by!

The practical stuff
Let's be honest you just want to have a party with all your family and friends! Me too! It's going to be amazing and the last thing I want you do is stress about the planning so here are my top tips for it.
Firstly check the sporting/musical events planned the day of the wedding. A derby match or if Lady Gaga is in town and it could add lot more traffic then you hadn't planned for getting around.
Secondly I would suggest doing an handy guide for your guests. Include things like accomodation, parking & taxi's, but you might also want to include a few close by restaurants or activities just in case your guests want to extend the wedding with a mini break. After photographing many weddings in Manchester I've got lots of tips & recommendations so please just ask if you're struggling for ideas!
A few more handy tips for your Manchester wedding photography
- Manchester has lots of green spaces as well as cool and funky streets so you really can have the best of both worlds when it comes to photo’s. ...are all fantastic places to grab a few shots. But if none of these fit what your looking for or you have a different spot in mind then there's nothing stopping us jumping in the wedding car or. taxi/uber scooting off for 10 minutes to get what you want. It's your Manchester Wedding after all! Do what you want!
- Embrace the the chaos. Manchester has a lot of tourists and shoppers so they may appear in some of your images on the streets but some amazing shots have come out of moments like this. Let's see what we can do!
- A lot of times they'll be some really pretty streets and beautiful rooms and areas to get some photo's but don't panic if I suggest some that don't immediate look the most attractive and your typical wedding backdrops. Sometimes the most unexpected places make the best imagery. I'll be looking for things like textures, colours and light most of the time and looking for unique spots that catch my eye to give you really bespoke and special wedding photographs that your both look amazing in!
