Set within the stunning city of Manchester is the boutique hotel of King Street Town House. Photographing the wedding of Laura and Steve was an immense pleasure and such a fun wedding day it was. The stylish hotel, a Italian Renaissance building built in 1872, was the setting for their civil ceremony as well as their wedding reception. Just an absolute pleasure to photograph at with it’s panoramic views from the balcony overlooking the city landscape.
Laura got ready at her childhood home a few miles away with her bridesmaids. I have never seen a father of the bride so emotional to see his daughter in her wedding gown for the first time. I use only silent cameras to be as unobtrusive as possible when capturing photos. It was then off to the city centre to the wonderful King Street Town House to meet the groom Steve, in the bar of course.
Photographing around Manchester Christmas Markets
The ceremony took place in one of the rooms upstairs before then heading up the lift to the south terrace to continue the celebrations. A serving of champagne and canapes, followed a flurry of hugs and tears from the wedding guests. The view from King Street Town House’s balcony of this chic hotel is second to none, certainly an eclectic hotel. The newlyweds went for a walk around the streets to have some relaxed photos taken together. Manchester Christmas markets where on as this was the very end of November and it was fun seeing so many people star at the married couple. Capturing photos in the city is such fun and including the industrial grit intentionally makes it fitting to the vibe of the wedding.
Wonderful wedding at King Street Town House
The sun began to set and twilight set in. The couple headed into the dining room for their meal, and then followed was the speeches. The evening party took place in the same room with the DJ getting everyone going for the rest of the wedding day. So wonderful photographing this wedding at King Street Town House. A massive congrats to Laura and Steve. Big thank you to Fran Egido for shadowing at this wedding.
