Midland Hotel Wedding Photography | Gaby & Dan


This is quite literally one of the most exciting weddings I have ever been part of. A Midland Hotel wedding in the centre of Manchester and photography from four leading wedding photographers. A must see – here is just a sample of photos from the day.

Midland Hotel Photography

It’s one of every wedding photographers worst nightmares to become ill on the morning of the wedding, but this is exactly what happened to me. Feeling only about 75% I knew I had to ask for additional help to ensure the level of photography was maintained for the couple and families. This wasn’t the usual Midland Hotel wedding, but a 400+ guest Jewish wedding. With most Jewish weddings important parts of the day are happening in different places and therefore Neil had already been booked to help, but as I was struggling I was pleased that Andrew and Matt also came to the rescue. Four photographers! A little overkill but with a 400+ guests crowed we kept discrete and ensured we were not intrusive on the day. My biggest thanks goes out to the other three for stepping in, going above and beyond and helping me.

Luxury Wedding Venue

I’m not going to go into the finer parts of a Jewish wedding as I have done in previous posts, but the entire day happened in different parts of the hotel utilising almost every room. The Midland is a wonderful venue to have a wedding, luxury doesn’t do it justice! Take a look at this incredible wedding we captured as a team.

Gilev Showband

The entertainment was provided by the biggest wedding band I have ever worked with, and no doubt one of the best – Gilev Showband. They travel up an down the country providing unreal entertainment for wedding. A joy to photograph it was, with stage quality lighting and sound and genuinely got all 400 people up on the dance floor at the same time. wow!

A huge thank you again to Neil Redfern, Andrew Billington and Matt Warrington.
