Altrincham Town Hall Wedding Photography
Steph and Hedley travelled all the way to Manchester from Glasgow to tie the knot in this Altrincham Town Hall Wedding spectacular. I hadn’t met Hedley before, but bumped into him in the Town Hall car park as he was preparing to get baby Arthur inside and dressed in his kilt.
Altrincham Town Hall is quite new on the wedding scene, but it is a fantastic building, full of character and charm. It’s also opposite the wonderful Market House. It was here I was supposed to meet up with Hedley and a few of his friends for some shots in this converted Grade II listed building. But, the best laid plans never run smoothly and sadly Hedley didn’t have time to sample the delights of the region’s finest food and drink outlets.
Steph arrived just on time and looked stunning. After the short trip up the ornate staircase, it was time for the I do’s. The entertainment was provided by Steph and Hedley’s friends, in the form of a choir. It was absolutely fantastic and I couldn’t believe they weren’t professional singers, they were that good. After a few shots outside the Town Hall, the guests left and Steph, Hedley and myself had a wander around the market area for the bride and groom portraits and to take advantage of the stunning winter sun.
Greens in Didsbury for the wedding reception
After a short drive into Manchester, the reception took place at Greens in Didsbury. It’s run by celebrity TV chef Simon Rimmer and I was lucky enough to be invited too. An unfortunate guest had taken ill and I had his meal! Aaron, if you are reading this, you made a fantastic choice and I thoroughly enjoyed your meal, thank you! Also thanks go to the Peacocks who let me sit with them and made me feel most welcome.
More fun at The Metropolitan pub
After the speeches and cake cutting, most of the guests set off on their travels home. But a few crossed the road and went to The Metropolitan pub. This place is enormous and it’s lucky Steph and Hedly had booked a space as it was heaving.
So there you have it, a fantastic Altrincham Town Hall wedding, fantastic couple, guests and food. What better way to spend a Thursday afternoon.
Hope you enjoy.
