We absolutely loved photographing Claire & Tommy’s Great John Street Hotel Wedding back in June. Oh my, what a party! And a very classy one it was too.
We met up with Claire & Tom a couple of times to discuss their wedding plans. We just love photographing weddings in the city centre of Manchester, so get very excited at the opportunity of shooting at the very cool Great John Street Hotel.
We had a little practice run with a pre-wedding shoot at their beautiful home in Bolton before the big day. (which can be viewed here.)
On the day of the wedding we met Tommy and the lads downstairs where they were getting ready, before making our way up to meet Claire for bridal preparations.
There was such a great buzz at the hotel as the guests started to arrive in their black tie attire.
They had a beautiful bespoke, humanist ceremony and you could see how much love these two have for each other.
Drinks were served on the rooftop lounge, which has a fantastic view of the city.
After a few hilarious speeches, the party really got into full swing with a perfect first dance by Claire and Tommy, followed by singing, cartwheels, backflips, and a mega dance off, all helped with a couple of sips (cough) of the good old Jäger bombs!
What a beautiful, fun wedding. We wish Claire and Tommy all the happiness in the world.
