Wedding photography at Victoria Warehouse in the North West
Documentary wedding photography in the North West at Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse. This old warehouse, which was built in 1900, has stood as a symbol of the cities industrial strength and innovation for the past 100 years. It stands tall in the North West of England in one of the most exciting cities… Manchester. The decor is unique here at the warehouse, with painted brick walls and a mixture of the original steel features to add to the couple’s wedding photography. This was my second wedding at Victoria Warehouse within two months. Jenny & Mike tied the knot and held an unforgettable ceremony for family and friends. The engaged pair had loved the ambiance of Victoria warehouse situated in the Trafford Park. This venue is completely unique, an entirely innovative event space in the heart of Manchester. I joined David Stubbs an award winning wedding photographer, to capture the day.
Mike and his best man, arrived in a open top Caterham wedding car, and greeted by his ushers and long-standing friends from his childhood (who had fun and games planned for him later on during the speeches). Read on!
Registrars waiting for the bride at Victoria warehouse.
Jenny had everyone a little worried, door key problems at the house meant they couldn’t lock up, which made Jenny a little late. The registrars were waiting for the bride to arrive at Victoria warehouse, they were beginning to tap their feet because they had another wedding ceremony in Manchester city centre later that day. However Jenny arrived to declare her love for Mike amongst family and friends. Jenny, looking radiant and beautiful in a stunning ivory lace wedding dress and was complemented splendidly by her bridesmaids in their elegant blue dresses. Both the mums had elegant wedding outfits & fascinators too. During the wedding service the couples rings were presented by the page boy.
Unposed and unobtrusive photos at Victoria warehouse
Jenny & Mike were greeted with a flute of champagne to begin their wedding celebrations from the master of ceremonies at Victoria warehouse. Later, the wedding party gathered outside the wedding venue, near to Manchester’s swing bridge for a few formal photos, next to the famous ‘Skyhook’. The couple walked together near the Skyhooks, a great opportunity to take some unposed and unobtrusive wedding photography. I especially enjoy this part of my wedding photography, it always provides the newlyweds with some time together, for a little escape, and a kiss and cuddle with there new spouse. After romantic stroll the happy couple made there way back to Victoria Warehouse for reception sparklers at dusk, followed by the wedding breakfast and speeches.
Mike’s best man and ushers had arranged a ‘birth to marriage’ slide show speech of Mike’s life, shown on large screens. A very humorous and well presented addition to a fantastic wedding nuptials. Congratulations to Jenny & Mike enjoy married life!
