Wedding photography at Novotel Manchester
Emma and Matt’s wedding day began with bridal preparations at Emma’s home, and was to conclude with celebrations at the Manchester Novotel in Worsely.
The bridal party began with the bride and bridesmaids having their hair and makeup done, in the conservatory, with a few glasses of champagne or bucks fizz. Emma’s parents were definitely enjoying the atmosphere. I was there with my trusted Canon full frame 5dMk 4 to document the day from start to finish. There would be no posing or set-up shots; just natural documentary wedding photography. The girls finally helped Emma into her beautiful fishtail gown.
Documentary wedding photography in Manchester
Documentary wedding photography is all about telling the story of the day. A white Rolls Royce arrived to transport the bridesmaids through the Manchester rain. Whilst my fellow photographer David Stubbs – who had asked me to assist him – awaited for their arrival at St John’s Baptist Church in Little Hulton Manchester, I captured on camera the father of the bride escorting his daughter from her home, as a single woman, for the very last time.
The ceremony went off without a hitch; candid wedding photography is all about telling the story of the day, and all the key moments of the day were safely stowed onto my camera’s memory card.
The Journey to Manchester’s Novotel
As the new Mr and Mrs set off to the reception at the Manchester Novotel, we pulled over to capture some natural, unposed photographs of the couple taking a short informal walk – just pure documentary photography as they wandered along the towpath of one of Manchester’s canals.
Arrival at the Novotel reception in Manchester
As the newlyweds were greeted at their reception at the Worsley Novotel by family and friends, all great photographs were taken in my style of documentary wedding photography. Furthermore, the couple had a giant balloon release planned. The wedding entertainment was a Laurel & Hardy duo performing magic show with general fun and games.
