King Street Townhouse Wedding | Paul and Mary
King Street Townhouse Wedding Photography
Imagine getting married at the venue where you met! Well, that’s exactly what Paul and Mary did. They were both on nights out at King Street Townhouse, fate intervened, they met and fell in love. Fast forward to earlier this year and they were back at King Street, to get married themselves!
King Street Townhouse wedding ceremony
While Paul was getting ready at home with his groomsmen, their son and their ridiculously cute dog, I joined Mary in King Street Townhouse’s stunning bridal suite where she was being thoroughly pampered. Her daughters were getting ready with her and there was so much joy and excitement in the air. I love shooting bridal prep, it’s a really nice build up to the day and lets me get to know some of the key people in the couple’s life.
I’d been joined by my fab second shooter, Nik, for the day and they captured the moment Mary’s surprise for Paul arrived. She’d secretly arranged for a vintage wedding car to whisk Paul and his groomsmen over to King Street. You can see from the photos just how excited he was! Their intimate ceremony took place in King Street Townhouse’s ‘Large Hub’ (or basement to those of us who aren’t down with the King Street lingo!) before we all headed upstairs to the Terrace to celebrate.
I absolutely love King Street Townhouse weddings and that’s mainly because of this amazing reception area. A large, open air terrace overlooking Manchester is hard to beat! Paul and Mary certainly made the most of it with reception drinks and we managed to get some beautiful, sunset portraits of the two of them and the Manchester backdrop that evening. When the stars align and you get a gorgeous couple, beautiful light and a stunning backdrop there’s no greater feeling for a photographer!
Manchester city centre portraits
During their reception we took some time out and went for a wander around the city centre. I love urban wedding portraits, there’s such a great contrast between a wedding dress and the glass and stone backgrounds of Manchester.
I’ll always find time on a wedding day to take the couple away from the action for around twenty minutes. Not only does this mean we get some lovely, relaxed portraits (without any guests affectionately heckling them!) but it also gives the couple some well needed time alone together. So many couples tell me how much they treasure this time of the day.
Paul and Mary, what an epic wedding! From the gorgeous ceremony to the emotional speeches and amazing Irish dancing, it was brilliant from start to finish! Thank you so much for having me along to take your wedding photographs.
