Media City Wedding Photography Manchester

Here’s another republished blog from a wedding I photographed at Media City in Manchester in the winter of 2017. It was a lovely day and despite a little taxi snafu before the wedding ceremony at Salford Cathedral everything ran very smoothly…


Media City Wedding Manchester


“As my first blog post of 2018 I thought I’d share a preview of Helen and Jack’s Media City wedding in Manchester (well Salford if you want to split hairs).

This was the third wedding in a row (in fact all my winter weddings in December) where I’d worked with couples who live in Australia but were travelling back to the UK to get married.

I imagine it is quite a stressful endeavour to arrange your wedding from 9500 miles away – not having the opportunity to visit venues, talk to suppliers face to face or sit down with your florist.

This doesn’t seem to have fazed any of the couples I worked with last month. I think it helps to have family on the ground in the country your are getting married in to run around and do the little jobs you’d usually do yourself.


Relaxed reception at On The 7th in Salford


Helen and Jack had planned a great day. A 1pm wedding at St.John’s Church, Salford Cathedral followed by a long relaxed reception at On The 7th in Salford Quays, opposite the BBC where Jack used to work. Salsa band, drinks, great food, fantastic live band. A fabulous day.

There were only a couple of wrinkles on the day. One – Salford Cathedral was covered in scaffolding (which we could do nothing about). And two was when the wedding bus that was booked to bring all the guests from the hotel to the church failed to materialise! 70 guests stranded at the Holiday Inn when they should have been at the church. But did this faze the groom and his best men? Well no.


What a cool bride


Phone calls were made. Taxis ordered. And guests arrived.

Helen even made time to arrange for return taxis to be waiting for everyone after the ceremony. What a cool bride.

Here is a quick peek at Jack and Helen’s Media City wedding photography – a great day spent in Manchester and at On The 7th in Salford. I look forward to editing the rest of the day.
