Arthi and Jon’s wedding in Castlefield

Weddings | 14.07.2010

Here it is! My absolute favourites from Arthi & Jon’s amazing Castlefield wedding a few weeks back.

First of all – it was unbelievably hot! I don’t think any of us expected to get weather as good as we had and it made such a difference to how I approached the photography on the day. Drinks were served outside and being pretty much the biggest outdoor area in the centre of Manchester, all the local watering holes around us were heaving – which meant we could incorporate this into the imagery, which is exactly what we’d been praying for! If Manchester had done it’s usual thing and rained all day, this wedding would have looked very different!

I started off meeting Arthi & the girls at The Midland Hotel in the centre of town…

Drinks were served outside by the canal – could it have been anymore perfect?

This is where the really cool stuff starts!  I went for a wander with the bridal party, through the heaving throngs of drinkers and sun worshippers and we got some amazing stuff…

From the first time we discussed the wedding, Arthi always said she wanted to incorporate a barge into one of the shots!  So we did!  Check out the original ‘sneak preview‘ of Arthi & Jon’s wedding to see the behind the scenes version!

Arthi looked stunning!  I think it would be impossible to take a bad shot of her!
