Shanks’s pony around Manchester for the bride and groom photos

The Manchester weather couldn’t make it’s mind up for most of the day but it did at least stay dry for the group shots, which we took on the museum terrace and banks of the River Irwell. Unfortunately after this the Manchester drizzle set in and I thought that might put a dampener on the bride and groom photos. Not a chance, Cathy opened up her umbrella and off we went and it certainly made for a Manchester wedding to remember.

The Kings Arms on Bloom Street

The Kings Arms is quite a famous place around these parts. It has regular live music and hosts theatre productions which is why it is so close to Cathy’s heart, being an actor herself. The pub is/was owned by ex Housemartins/Beautiful South singer Paul Heaton.

Before I left Cathy wasn’t to be outdone by the amount of beards on show and donned her own but what else would you expect for this quirky Manchester wedding!

Cathy and Antony, thank you both so much, this is your story….
