Sale Town Hall wedding photographer -Manchester wedding
Eleanor and Mike invited me along as their Sale Town Hall wedding photographer and had the most chilled out wedding at this lovely Manchester location! I’m becoming quite a regular at Sale Town Hall weddings – so here’s to many more. Chris from Classic Wedding Cars Cheshire provided his stunning Mk2 Jaguar for the day.
Wedding photography for the armed forces
This was my first wedding where the groom was getting married in his armed forces uniform, in this case Mike looked unbelievably smart in his Royal Navy uniform. Mike is based in Portsmouth at the same base my very own dad served when he was in the Royal Navy along long time ago, so this made the day extra special for me. After the wedding and honeymoon the two newly weds are starting their new life together down there in Hampshire.
Eleanor and Mike are colourful characters and so were their friends and family. The Manchester weather played a blinder and allowed us to take a walk down along the canal side for the bride and groom photos.
Packing everything into a spring afternoon ceremony
There was another first for me at this wedding as well, a dove release. Eleanor and I think everyone else, was quite relieved when it was over and her dress remained free from any nasty bird surprises. After the trip down by the canal we headed off to the reception which as being held at The Spread Eagle in Chorlton-cum-hardy, which is a very a trendy south Manchester suburb.
Northern Soul, Ska and dance floor moves
Meanwhile, as everybody enjoyed the late afternoon sun on the terrace at the front of The Spread Eagle, the DJ was setting up. Eleanor and Mike are big music fans and Northern Soul and Ska were the order of the day. A lot of the guests had some very nifty dance skills up their sleeves and it wasn’t long before the dance floor was packed and this was even before the first dance had taken place.
To keep everyone entertained, the boys from Captur provided the photobooth fun and a magnifient buffet fit for a king kept everyone’s energy levels up for the evening dancing late into the night.
