Manchester Town Hall | Lydia and Chris

stunning wedding image inside Manchester Town HallWedding photography in Manchester doesn’t get much grander than at Manchester Town Hall. Its always cool to photograph there and when you also have a fun couple  into their wedding photography like Lydia and Chris, it’s even better! Since photographing their engagement shoot last month around Castlefields I’ve been really looking forward to their wedding.

Manchester Radisson blu Edwardian

Lydia’s bridal preparations were at the elegant Radisson blu Edwardian in Manchester. The Edwardian is simply stunning, situated in the old free trade hall this 5 star hotel has it all. Huge rooms with lots of great light, balconies with views over the city and an exterior to die for. The Radisson was a perfect match for Lydia and really suited her classy wedding dress complete with feather bolero. The Edwardian is a lovely hotel with light airy rooms that are great for photographers. Once Lydia’s hair and makeup was perfect it was time to put on her wedding dress and take a few bridal portraits.beautiful bridal makeup

Manchester Town Hall

I arrived at Manchester Town Hall to find a surprisingly relaxed Chris talking to friends.smiling groom at Manchester Town HallI love photographing weddings in Manchester Town Hall, its an amazing building. Climbing that grand spiral staircase to get married must fill brides with an enormous sense of occasion.bride walks up the stunning Manchester Town Hall staircaseThe registrars in Manchester are among the best there are and know how to make a wedding special. They are also highly photography friendly which is sadly not the case may kiss the bride

They chose to have their speeches before the wedding breakfast, this is increasingly popular and stops any nerves spoiling the meal. The food in the exchange was special.Father and mother of the bride give speech

    The photos are amazing. I’ve been in tears since the photos hit the eighties! Really gutted I didnt get such good, useable ones for my own wedding. You’re very, very talented.
