Wedding Day Etrop Hotel Manchester
Wedding Day Etrop Manchester – Pre Wedding Preparation
Today I will be photographing Katherine and Dean wedding. They booked me to shoot their wedding last November when we met up for a wedding consultation to discuss their photography coverage. Their wedding day took place at The Etrop Grange Hotel in Manchester. The hotel is a Georgian townhouse located close to Manchester airport.The day started with the pre-wedding preparation. Katherine was very relaxed, laughing and joking with her auntie who was her maid of honour and her mother n law.
Katherine started first by having her hair done why her maid of honour had he makeup applied. Once the hair and makeup were complete Katherine dressed her daughter Jessica. She looked like a little princess, so cute. It was now time for Katherine to put her wedding dress on. She looked beautiful. When everyone was ready there was a knock at the door and it was the registrar straight away they commented on how stunning Katherine looked.
Fuchsia Colour Cravats
One of the funniest cutest moments that stood out for me was when Jessica, the bride’s little girl interrupted them and said You do know that I am a bride too, do you think I look beautiful. We all laughed, and they went onto say yes Jessica you are a beautiful bride too. Downstairs the Groom and his best man had arrived looking very smart but nervous in their suits, top hats and fuchsia colour cravats.They went to the bar and enjoyed a few drinks.
The guest was now arriving and filling up the ceremony room perfectly. As I made my way downstairs with the bride she was greeted by her Dad, he looked so proud of her. Dean took his place with his best man standing by his side. He waited patiently for his bride. First to walk down the aisle was there beautiful daughter hand in hand with the lovely maid of honour. Then next came Katherine linked arm in arm with her dad.From that moment on all Katherine and Deans family and friends witnessed them as they became Mr and Mrs Cooke.
Wedding Portrait Photographs
After the wedding ceremony, everyone went outside into the garden to relax and enjoy a few drinks. We started to work on the wedding photographs including all the traditional family shots that Katherine and Dean wanted including, then it was on to the bride and groom wedding portrait photographs. When all the photographs had been taken it was then onto the wedding meal. The wedding speeches flowed and got everyone laughing and enjoying themselves.
Shortly after it was onto the party reception where we photographed the cutting of the cake and watched as Mr and Mrs Cooke took to the dance floor to have their first wedding dance together. I Loved photographing Katherine and Deans wedding and meeting all their lovely family and friends. I wish them all the luck for their future together.
