Reahannah + Nathan’s Manchester Wedding Photography | Yorkshire Wedding Photographer

Reahannah + Nathan got married at St John’s Church in the Manchester area and then held their reception at the Abel Heywood Hotel and Botanical Gin bar in the city centre. The couple specified that they were going to have a relaxed day without so much formality and that’s what they delivered.

I met Reahannah and her bridal party of sisters at the couple’s home and mingled with the mayhem as the preparations took place. As so many people were getting ready in such a confined space, as is usually the case during the preparations stage of the wedding day, its important for me as the only male present (generally) to blend in without interrupting any moments that might naturally occur. As I’ve been photographing wedding’s for more than 10 years I able to bring this experience with me on the day, which does a lot to reassure people in your presence. It’s also important to go with the fun, and this has often led to some interesting photos.

After an hour or so I went up to the Church and met with Nathan and the arriving guests. This part of the day is quite challenging in terms of getting photo’s of people you’ve just met within a tight time period, as I’m usually required to be ready for the bride’s arrival also. The key to producing photo’s under these constraints is to work quickly with an awareness of the environment, the direction of the light and the minutes as they tick by.

After the ceremony, the guests all made their way to the reception at the Abel Heywood, which is in a great location in terms of parking and locations for producing some couple’s shots quickly. When the couple arrived I took them off for 10 minutes to create these portraits before I blended back in with the guests as they all celebrated.

I got this message from Reahannah + Nathan when they got their photos back:

“We are in love with our wedding photos! They’re brilliant! Thank you so much for being a part of our special day! They’re everything we’d hoped for! Thank you!”
