Manchester Art Gallery Wedding Photography ~ Dan Barlow

Liz & Matt

Liz & Matt’s fantastic Manchester city centre wedding was one which I’d been looking forward to for quite some time, it was going to be a little different with it’s evening ceremony at Manchester Art Gallery happening after the bridal portraits, in order to launch straight into the reception and partying at Rain Bar later that evening.

Liz and her bridesmaids started the bridal preparations at The Midland Hotel in Manchester’s city centre in the afternoon before Liz went down to the lobby to meet Matt for a ‘first look’. This gave us a chance to take a little longer on the bridal portraits than we would’ve otherwise been able to do and it also took a whole load of pressure out of the day knowing they were done! There were no less than two drinks receptions: one at the The Midland Hotel then one prior to the service in Manchester Art Gallery; then, it was time for the ceremony.

After the ceremony and group photos in the lobby, there was just enough time for a few more photographs outside in ‘The Lost Gardens of Manchester’ before a short walk to Rain bar. This walk to the reception yielded even more photo opportunities and Liz literally held up traffic for the photo on the road into Manchester’s Chinatown! At Rain Bar, there were speeches, dancing, many cakes and then a whole lot more dancing; you can see how much fun everyone had throughout the photos below, right until the very end of the night!

Congratulations Liz & Matt!

    Dan! Wow! We can’t thank you enough for such a perfect job! We feel like you really listened to what we wanted..an unobtrusive and informal record of our big day. I cried looking through them last night..they brought back all the fantastic memories and big smiles! Having received all of our pics through the post this morning, I can’t believe how much you managed to capture and yet I didn’t even notice you were there most of the time! You were the perfect choice for our wedding photos and we’re chuffed to bits with the results. Better than I could have even imagined 🙂
