When Dan and Belinda first came to see me and tell me about their wedding plans they made it very clear how important Manchester was to them and how it had to feature in their wedding story. The city was the backdrop to their love story, the place they spend time with friends and family, the scene of many date nights. So it was an obvious choice for their wedding day. The couple chose Manchester Town Hall as their wedding ceremony and then took a leap of faith by choosing a very non-traditional venue for their reception – the fabulous Teepees at the Oast House. I’ve got to admit I was a little bit apprehensive about photographing a winter wedding in Teepees – but now I’m a total convert – it was fabulous!
Bea and Dan had such a clear idea of what they wanted to create – a rustic mancunian winter wonderland wedding. And my goodness how they achieved just that! When I walked into the Oast House for the first time and saw it all set up, my jaw dropped!
It’s been awesome getting to know Bea and Dan throughout their wedding journey – from their first contact when they found me on Pinterest, through to giggling away around the Northern Quarter on their engagement shoot, right through to the big day itself. This couple are seriously loved up and it was such a treat to spend the day with them and all their friends and family.
Big thanks to Bea and Dan for choosing me as your photographer. I loved every minute of it! I know I don’t need to wish you luck in your journey together – it’s easy to see that you’re made for each other.
