The first look as the Groom sees his Bride for the first time in her white wedding gown.


Wedding photography Sale Town Hall

I was delighted to be asked by Ruth and Stephen to be their wedding photographer at the ceremony to be held at Sale Town Hall, and to naturally capture their wedding at Trafford register office, in the heart of Manchester. The betrothed couple had planned a intimate family wedding to make it a perfect day. Featuring their own classic wedding limousine, the couple had planned a trip to a Showaddywaddy concert for the evening celebrations.

I met Stephen and his best man before the civil service outside Sale town hall with his beloved classic Ford Cortina car which is affectionately known as ‘Peggy’ and is over 48 years old. Its gleaming blue paintwork coordinated with Ruth’s chosen bridal colour scheme, with the bridesmaids dresses and bridal bouquet.

Father of the Bride escorts his daughter to the civil ceremony room

The Bridal party arrived at Trafford Register Office and Ruth was escorted by her dear Dad to the civil ceremony room at Sale Town Hall. On the way, Ruth met the registrar to complete the formalities and take the walk up the grand town hall staircase to change her life forever and tie the knot to Stephen. It was all captured totally unposed in my style of documentary wedding photography. In the elegantly furnished civil room, the intimate ceremony culminated with the happy couple signing their wedding certificate, surrounded by their closest family and friends. Joy and delight in the air as they witnessed the newlyweds cement their love and commitment to each other! Erupting into laughter as Stephen waved his arms above his head triumphantly! Yeh!! He’d got his gal!!

Confetti outside Sale Town Hall

Ruth and Stephen’s excited young children were looking smart in their wedding attire and could not wait to get outside the fine architectural town hall building in Sale to throw confetti at the happy newlyweds!! Having a natural wedding photographer (like myself) means all those moments that happen – big or small – can be safely captured and given back to the happy couple as a mono-tone or colour image, documenting and telling their unique wedding day story, and ensuring that it can be treasured forever.

The Nevison Inn and Showaddywaddy

Ruth and Stephen planned their afternoon wedding celebrations, just out off Manchester along the East Lancs Road (A580) at the Nevison Inn. Here, at this quaint country setting the wedding party enjoyed wedding Champagne and drinks, delicious wedding buffet and of course.. cutting of the wedding cake. A traditional fruit wedding cake, made with love by Ruth’s Mum. Wow… it packed a punch, with quite a lot of wedding spirit to keep it moist.

The newlyweds love Showaddywaddy! Stephen, a longtime fan of the group, upon asking Ruth to marry him, had shared his wish to combine their wedding day with their love of Showaddywaddy. His bride to be, ensured this wish came true and so…the happy couple sang and danced the night away at their concert in St Helens surrounded by their nearest and dearest!! A fabulous end to a very special and unique day!

Thank you Ruth and Stephen for asking me to be your photographer, and for treating my family to a day that they thoroughly enjoyed. I loved being your wedding photographer and sincerely hope that you love the natural unposed wedding photography I have created for you.
