It’s hard to go wrong with a stunning wedding venue like Gorton Monastery, throw into the mix a very handsome, fun and stylish couple like Jane and Dave you’ve got the recipe for a brilliant day. We are sure that all the lucky guests that attended this unforgettable day would agree that it was a bit special.
We met Jane at Harvey Nicols in the centre of Manchester having her hair and makeup done at Umberto Giannini with all her bridesmaids, it was fab for everyone to have a whole hair salon to themselves, it was such a lovely atmosphere. It was fun walking through Harvey Nics with Jane who had her bridal dressing gown on to go and get her wedding dress and what a dress too it was amazing. It was a lovely 1940’s vintage dress that looked like it was made for Jane, when she tried it on for the first time it didn’t need any alterations, definitely fate working there. Vintage Lane Bridal Boutique you did a great job of supplying a truly unique wedding gown.
Whilst the lovely old VW camper ferried the bridesmaids, Mothers and Grandma to Gorton Monastery we made our way there to photograph Dave who was greeting the guests.
Theres always a cathedral like sense of theatre during a wedding ceremony at Gorton Monastery, this is tempered though by the fact that its a non religious ceremony so as a photographer you get a bit more chance to quietly move around during the ceremony which is nice.
Next came the drinks reception and whilst this was on we quickly took the opportunity to do a couple of shots with the bride and groom. Gorton Monastery with its Pugin’s architecture offers a up some pretty unique photo opportunities, we absolutely love this first image of Jane and Dave amongst the Gothic arches.
After some very lovely food and the speeches is was time to dance. The music was provided by The Mojitos who just happened to be the Four Tops backing band, their big sound fitted the venue perfectly, they are a talented bunch of lads and well worth looking up.
All the best Jane and Dave you certainly provided a day that us or the guests will ever forget.
