Irina and Graham invited me along as their Sale Town Hall wedding photographer and had the most gorgeous ceremony at this lovely 1915 Manchester location!
The day began at Irina’s friends Sue’s home where I photographed the pair getting ready. As the make up artist worked her magic, Sue’s husband cooked them an amazing breakfast of smoked salmon and scrambled egg …which of course included a bottle of bubbly. Meanwhile my assistant Natasha was at the couples house photographing Graham and their children getting ready. Certainly everyone was relaxed and excited for the day ahead.
On arriving at Sale Town Hall, I met Graham who looked very dapper. Shortly after taking a few groomsmen photos, Irina and her father arrived. Irina looked stunning and full of smiles as her father helped her out the car. As they walked up the steps of the town Hall, they both looked rather emotional.
The ceremony room, designed in 1930s Art Deco style looked so stylish. With features of wood panelling together with large windows filtering in plenty of light, it created a truly wonderful ambiance for their wedding.
Before entering the room, Irina was met by their children who were loving being part of this special day. Soon all heads turned to see Irina as her dad proudly walked her down the aisle. The service was both intimate and emotional. Above all there were large beaming smiles and laughter as the couple said their ‘I do’s’.
Arriving back at their home, their garden was a spectacular sight with an amazing marquee, outdoor lounge areas and atmospheric outdoor lighting. Soon drinks started flowing as guests mingled. With lots of activities set up for the children, they were all having a great time too!
Time quickly vanished and before long, Irina and Graham were cutting their cake followed by their first dance and lots more dancing too!
Thank you Irina and Graham for choosing us to be part of your special day.
