Orlagh and Phil decided on a city wedding with their ceremony in the town Hall followed by a reception in the fabulous Italian restaurant Stock, situated in one of the old banking buildings of Manchester.
Orlagh got ready at the Midland hotel, which made for some lovely photos with the natural daylight and opulent surroundings. The Town Hall, a firm favourite of mine provided the backdrop to their moving and personal ceremony accompanied by a surprise Gospel choir hiding in the balcony.
With Orlagh’s stunning backless dress I wanted to capture a few shots from behind and the dramatic staircase in the Town Hall was the ideal location.
After a fun group shot on the main entrance and some couple shots of Phil and Orlagh inside and outside of the Town Hall we made our way over to Stock where the beautiful domed ceiling was a great setting for the reception and meal.
