Chancellors Hotel Wedding Photography - Manchester- Hannah & Mike

Chancellors hotel is a beautiful grade II listed Victorian mansion set in 5 acres of stunning landscape gardens dating back to 1850. I was delighted when Hannah and Mike asked me to capture their big day. I was super excited to capture some amazing pictures at one of Manchester's best kept secrets.

Bridal Preparation
I arrived bright and early ready to capture my favourite part of the day, bridal preparations. So many different emotions flying around you never know what you might capture. After mooching around the grounds, I located the bridal party tucking into a good old English fry up. I joined them for a brew and a chat as excitement and nerves filled the room.
It was a relaxed morning full of lots of laughter and of course the obligatory Prosecco. Hair and make-up was created by the lovely Amy Curran Hair & Make up and she did an amazing job. Hannah`s dress was purchased from David`s Bridal and I'm sure you'll agree what a stunning gown and suited her perfectly.

Relaxed Documentary Photography
The ceremony was held in the carriage restaurant which features very high ceilings and large glass doors which is flooded with natural light which created the most natural images. Following the emotional service guests made their way out into the garden terrace to soak up the atmosphere, sip champagne and nibble on some canapes. I then had the opportunity to get some alone time with my bride and groom. Capturing some relaxed photography as the new Mr & Mrs, before returning indoors to the flower suite where the room was decorated perfectly by Sweet 6 Creations. The guests tucked into a delicious wedding breakfast and I have to say the profiteroles with salted caramel were to die for.

The Speeches
What can I say, so much laughter especially when the best man brings out a life size cardboard cut-out of the groom, dress as Pocahontas.  It has to be one of my favourite best man speeches of all time, just for the surprise factor alone! The celebration continued in to the night with sounds from Alice band and fun on the Photo Booth went on into the night which was supplied by me. Guests were also treated to a delicious hog roast. All the staff at the Chancellors’ hotel did an amazing job and really made it a special day for everyone involved. Here are some of my favourite pictures of the day.
