In the heart of Manchester’s city centre for an Albert Square Chop House Wedding with Rachel & Ian. We absolutely love a city wedding, and even more so when that city is Manchester. Rachel and Ian live smack bag in the middle of Manchester, in the very cool Northern Quarter.
They got in touch with us and told us their wedding plans. They had planned a lovely intimate wedding with their nearest and dearest and it was all to be held in the city centre of Manchester.
An Intimate Wedding
Rachel was getting ready in the morning at The Midland Hotel with her Mother and two bridesmaids. She looked so happy in her dress and her face was just filled with excitement. I made my way to Albert Square Chop House where the wedding ceremony was taking place. I met Ian and the lads outside as they greeted guests as they arrived. Rachel arrived in true Manc style in a black taxi where she met her husband to be at the front of the ceremony room. They had a few readings during the ceremony, two very emotional ones from both their dads.
After the ceremony we made our way to the front of Albert Square Chop House for a few group shots.
I stole Rachel and Ian away from their guests for a walk around Manchester city centre to get some photographs of the two of them together.
Manchester Town Hall is one of our favourite venues to shoot weddings. The light inside that place is just something else. We got some amazing portraits of them both within the splendor of the fantastic building. We made our way back to Albert Chop house for drinks and speeches.
A really lovely wedding with the nicest couple you could ever wish to meet. I was made to feel so welcome by all their guests too.
Albert Square Chop House
Albert Square Chop House is located in Thomas Worthington’s Memorial Hall. A Victorian warehouse that is now a very popular pub and restaurant. It has a very nice function room, perfect for intimate weddings. It was fantastic to walk into the Ceremony room and see framed photos of great Manchester icons on the wall. Biggest of all was the legend Anthony H Wilson.
