The Great John Street, an original Victorian school house is a fantastic city centre location for weddings and events. Gavin and Hollie chose to hold their reception on the roof top terrace overlooking the streets of Manchester.
The bedrooms are opulent and a great location for pre wedding shots. I met Hollie first and took some photos of her and her mum getting ready. Her Audrey Hepburn inspired vintage dress was beautiful and Hollie’s relaxed demeanour in front of the camera made her a pleasure to photograph.
The ceremony was held in a registry office in Salford and the Manchester weather behaved itself for a change with sunshine and blue skies throughout the whole day.
I chose to photograph the group shots in a small park so even though it was a city centre wedding we would still get some great shots involving flowers and greenery. The wild flowers were in full bloom and it didn’t really feel like were in the middle of the city at all.
The day finished up on the rooftop terrace of the Great John Street hotel where I unobtrusively snapped away capturing moments of Gav and Hollie and their guests as they relaxed and enjoyed themselves.
