I love Great John Street Hotel weddings, and so I jumped for joy when Graham and Becky asked me to photograph their wedding at one of my favourite venues in Manchester. A small boutique hotel with so many quirky features, a joy to shoot at.
The hotel is not far from the city centre and on the door step of Granada studios. You can even see parts of Coronation Street from the roof terrace. The hotel was once an old school house which they use as their theme throughout, with old books lying around and vintage cupboards and storage shelves. The day’s of it being a school are long gone and now they specialise in hosting marriages and reception parties.
Graham and Becky had their full day at the hotel. Such a fun wedding from start to finish. For their wedding portraits together we walked around the corner and made use of the urban environment, especially walking down the centre of a busy Manchester street. Once back at the reception everyone was treated to amazing food, 3 amazing speeches and then a night-long party, with entertainment from the incredible band, Groovy Revolution.
As many couples do, Graham and Becky took me up on my ‘to midnight’ option, where I stay on for longer and photograph the crazy moves on the dance floor. This works particularly well at Great John Street Hotel weddings as the balcony allows stunning photos to be taken of the “after show party”.
Stunning wedding venue, beautiful couple and so so much fun. A genuine joy to be part of their special day. Congratulations Graham and Becky!
I have picked my favourite photos from their wedding to blog here, but this doesn’t even cover half all the wedding photos they received. You can probably tell that I love everything about Great John Street Hotel weddings so if you are planning to hold your big day there please get in touch to discuss your wedding photography. My style is all about taking photos as they naturally happen without your wedding turning into a photoshoot. I can’t wait to hear from you!
