Anna and Ryan are such an adorable couple and we were delighted to be chosen as their Manchester wedding photographer and videographer! They wanted a very relaxed, candid style of wedding coverage and we were able to offer them a wraparound photography and videography service, with our team working unobtrusively to capture all the beauty, fun and emotion of their big day.
Childhood sweethearts since their schooldays, Anna and Ryan were always going to have a very special wedding day. Anna’s family were keen to mark the occasion with special touches, decorating the steps to the couple’s Didsbury apartment with a gorgeous display of flowers. Their ceremony at the beautiful St James’s church in Didsbury was a very moving celebration of their love and the twelve years they had already spent together.
Anna’s mum Jill contacted us a couple of months before the wedding day with a special request. She’d had the family videos from Anna’s childhood put onto DVD and wondered if we could edit a montage of clips of Anna along with photos of the family and Anna and Ryan, set to one of the couple’s favourite songs “Could you be the one?” by The Stereophonics. We were more than happy to offer this service, and the resulting video was a huge hit at the reception. It was a lovely trip down memory lane, and a few tears were shed to see this vibrant, funny little girl and the amazing woman she had become.
Manchester’s Great John Street Hotel was a fabulous reception venue and the perfect fit for this cool, urban couple. The space was ideal for a relaxed summer wedding, with an elegant interior and the rooftop lounge providing a wonderful outdoor space with a fantastic view of the city.
The speeches were lovely, genuine and heartfelt and the evening festivities were a blast with the guests keen to hit the dancefloor and party the night away. Anna and Ryan and their families were a joy to work with and we wish them every happiness! Congratulations Mr and Mrs Woods!
