Deaf Institute Wedding Photography
This is an amazing Deaf Institute wedding featuring the equally amazing Gemma & Dan. My day started off quite early. At 9am I was in the Holiday Inn Express on Oxford Road photographing Gemma and the girls getting ready. Hair and make up was provided by the very talented Jules Daniels. The weather outside wasn’t really playing ball, especially after the long dry spell we’d all been enjoying. Not to worry though, these girls weren’t going to let a little bit of Manchester drizzle stop them.
Unfortunately Manchester Town Hall is now shut and no wedding ceremonies will be taking place there for around 6 years. Not to worry though, the register office are now providing all of the weddings around the corner at Heron House.
This wedding was a little unconventional, the bride and groom weren’t too bothered about the old tradition of not seeing each other before ceremony and had a little chat to each other before going in for the formalities.
Following the ceremony, Gemma & Dan wanted to do a few portraits around the city centre before making their way to the Deaf Institute. The weather was still unkind and the drizzle kept falling but it was still lovely to walk around the Albert Square area and use the famous arches for a little shelter. We then all jumped in to a taxi and headed off to the reception.
City Wedding Reception
The Deaf Institute is a fab old music hall. Gemma & Dan are huge 80’s music fans and every song on the playlist came from that era. I was lucky enough to join them for a beautiful three course wedding breakfast. After the speeches and cake cutting came the party. My word, what a night, smoke machines filled the dance floor and the light effects were amazing. After the first dance, everyone got up to join in the fun.
Gemma & Dan, thanks for having me along for the ride. This is your story……..
