Manchester Wedding Photographs – Ruth and Paul

Weddings | 25.05.2012

I’m so lucky to work with so many amazing brides and grooms and I love it so much when you find yourself working within a set of friends or family and you see the same people at different weddings – it’s so much fun! I actually met Ruth the first time I met Alexis off of Alexis and Adam’s Mitton Hall Wedding which is a long time ago now! Ruth wasn’t engaged at the time, she was just helping Ali out in the search for her wedding dress, but by the time Ali & Adam’s wedding came round, her and Paul were well on the way to tying the knot and I was delighted when they booked me to shoot their big day!

From the first time I sat down with Ruth and Paul to chat about their day I knew that it was going to be awesome.  No two ways about it.  They knew what they wanted, how the different parts of the day would work together and how they wanted me to fit into it.  They were having an intimate ceremony at Manchester Town Hall followed by a table of 20 at The Restaurant Bar & Grill’s Private Room – followed by a massive bash at The Victoria and Albert Marriott that evening where numbers went up to over 100 – ace day!

I started off at Ruth & Paul’s apartment in Manchester and then headed off to the town hall for the ceremony…



Ruth and Paul’s gorgeous daughter, Zara Minnie…


Ruth just looked amazing…





Aaah…the girls!  Ruth with the gorgeous (both of them!) Alexis and Charlie…


Then the short walk down John Dalton Street to The Restaurant Bar and Grill…




After the wedding breakfast I walked through Manchester to The V&A with Ruth and Paul and we shot some gorgeous images along the way…



We even had time to swing by their place and get a couple of shots outside their front door…love it!








Congratulations Ruthie & Paul!  Thank you so much for having me along on your special day – it was amazing!

Have a brilliant time in Barbados too…I’m not at all jealous… ;)
