CATHERINE AND ANDREW
HOPE MILL THEATRE, JULY 2017

So nice to get to photograph a wedding in my home city, Manchester. And in the sunshine too! Catherine and Andrew wanted the urban vibe for their wedding photography and chose a beautiful church for the ceremony that was just a frog's hop from where they live. But after the formalities it was all over to Ancoats to the newly refurbished Hope Mill Theatre for the photos, the food and the all important PARTY.

Hope Mill is a great venue for a Manchester wedding. Not only is it a working theatre but the space lends itself perfectly for a relaxed Manchester city wedding party. And the great thing about it is that it's kitted out with theatre lighting so you get stage quality drama for the speeches and dancing bits of the day/night!

For some of the couple shots we ventured out into Ancoats, mainly to get the Etihad Stadium in the background on a couple of shots for Andy (big City fan I believe) but also to soak up that urban vibe.

And then there was the dancing... Had to include a couple of the dancefloor shots in this feature.

Big love to the Bowers'!

Mr and Mrs Bowers pretty much pulled this wedding together themselves. Right creative types who spent months painstakingly gathering props, making bunting, curating playlists and so on. I witnessed some of the work they put in. They deserve a round of applause. Friends and family helped of course, and Alt Weddings Mcr were responsible for pulling it all together at the venue for them, and Caterers Etc. dished out tapas, paella and pizzas throughout the day.

WHAT THEY SAID...

WHAT THEY SAID...

We are absolutely over the moon that we chose Steve to document our big day! One of the most important things for us was having control over what was being captured as we didn’t really want the typical wedding photo experience. What was more important was capturing our friends and family enjoying themselves, and doing things our own way. Steve did us proud.

He was extremely accommodating of our unusual requests from our first meeting and totally understood what we were going for and immediately put us at ease which was really important. He was happy to discuss ideas we had and come up with smart, practical solutions to make them happen.

On the day itself Steve couldn’t have been more perfect. He was composed, organised and highly professional and handled all of our requests brilliantly. Even the typically challenging family photos event went by like a dream! Steve is warm and friendly and you can put your total trust in him, the whole day was a huge success and we’ve got some incredible photos to pass down the generations.

Even to our admittedly high standards Steve just 100% smashed it – we would happily recommend him to anyone. It was a total treat to receive the photos back and go through them and we’ve just had some blown up 16”x12” to hang on our walls. They look beautiful.

Thank you so much Steve, you are fantastic.
Love, Andrew & Catherine xx
