Didsbury House Hotel Wedding Photography – Stephanie & Ade
Photography in the leafy suburbs!
This was my first time photographing a wedding at Didsbury House Hotel in Didsbury, Manchester. It’s part of the the Eclectic Hotel collection. I’ve been lucky enough to have photographed at two of their other venues, Eleven Didsbury Park which is just around the corner and Great John Street in the city centre. All of them have a very intimate feel which is just perfect for weddings.
Wedding guests arrive
This has to be one of the most lovely wedding venues in the area. It’s almost like getting married in somebody’s house, the rooms are cosy but retain all of their original Victorian features and the decoration is just perfect for wedding photography.
I didn’t start by photographing the preparations as I usually do. Even though Stephanie was getting ready in one of the rooms upstairs she opted out of the bridal prep shots. Instead, I mingled with the guests downstairs to get some natural shots of them and the groom, Ade.

Wow, this was an emotional one. From Stephanie and her mum making their way down the beautiful ornate staircase to Ade’s son Joe and his speech. It had everyone in tears and full marks to him for carrying on and finishing it off. After the tears were wiped away it was time for the obligatory group shots just outside the house. Luckily we were blessed with the weather, blue sky the occasional glimpse of the sun.
A Manchester wedding with a Manchester Theme
Stephanie and Ade love their music and particularly Manchester music such as the Stone Roses and Oasis, so it was fitting to have this has a feature of their wedding. Music was provided acoustically by Love Music Events.

There’s not a lot of outside space for photography here but if you look for those little details it doesn’t make a lot of difference. Stephanie, Ade and myself just took a stroll through the car park and onto the road and came up with a range of beautiful natural portrait shots.
What a top day as a Didsbury House wedding photographer this was. Huge congratulations to Stephanie & Ade on getting married and an enormous thank you to both families of the newlyweds.
I hope I’ll be back at Didsbury House soon to photograph another wedding in my natural style. If you are getting married and looking for someone to capture the memories for you in a relaxed and natural style, please get in touch for a chat about your wedding day.
