Manchester Town Hall Wedding Photography – Ben & Tom; We had the absolute pleasure of returning to Manchester Town Hall for Ben & Tom’s wedding at the end of October.
Manchester Town Hall is a building we walked past many times on our way into Manchester for day trips or meals out. However, until we got into the world of wedding photography, we’d never had the chance to explore it. One of the reasons is that as a member of the public, you can’t just go in for a wander and an explore.
Manchester Town Hall is considered by architectural historians to be the finest example of neo-Gothic architecture anywhere in Europe. We’ll take their word for it – it’s pretty awesome. The Victorians sure knew how to put together a civic building. We’re honoured that something this gorgeous is right on our doorstep. Well, relatively. The scale of the place is just vast, too. Checking our Apple watches the day after their wedding, we walked an impressive 10.5Km around the corridors of this marble and stone masterpiece following the action.
We joined Ben and Tom in the morning, getting ready in their palatial suite in the Principal Hotel, a ten minute walk from the town hall. It’s another extremely impressive building. A victorian red-brick clock tower with the most beautiful entrance hall. Their room, a half-panelled wood and plaster suite, was filled with quirky furniture, and even had a record player as the stereo. The stairwell was beautiful, and we couldn’t resist a pre-wedding portrait with this gorgeous pair before we headed off to the town hall.
We arrived to a drinks reception in one of the bars off the main ceremony room. Ben & Tom’s wedding ceremony followed – an emotional, beautiful celebration with applause from 145 of their nearest and dearest friends and family.
After the ceremony, we headed off to give these guys some alone time. We caught some natural light outside the main entrance doorway, before heading off to make use of the vaulted ceilings, seemingly endless corridors and beautiful unique architectural features.
The Great Hall played host to the wedding breakfast, and after the speeches, we were welcomed right into the middle of the wedding party as guests to eat. We enjoyed fantastic company and wonderful food. As the band set up, the evening started in style, and we shot the action until our legs couldn’t take it any more.
It wasn’t until the next day that it hit us. Ben & Tom’s wedding really encompassed everything we love about photographing weddings. A celebration of two people in love, good friends and family, a laid back, fun atmosphere in the most beautiful of surroundings. We can’t thank you enough for inviting us along to share your wedding day. We had great fun and loved getting involved in all the moments which made it truly magical xxx
