Planes, trains and a wedding! My final wedding of 2013 saw me photographing Helen and Rich’s day at the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) in Manchester. I visited the MOSI many times growing up, exploring the science exhibits and looking at all the planes and trains was always great fun. At the age of 6, I never imagined I’d be back here shooting a wedding!
Helen and her sister were preparing for the day at the Malmaison. I joined them for an hour to capture the anticipation of the morning, before heading off to the Hilton to meet Rich and the guys. From here we walked to the MOSI, with a quick detour to the pub on route!
The 1830’s warehouse provided a spectacular, atmospheric backdrop for the wedding ceremony, and I was thankful of my Canon 5d Mk3 as it was very dark! (for the photographers reading this, most images during the ceremony were shot at 1/60th second f/1.4, ISO 12,800)
Following a beautiful ceremony, Helen, Rich and their guests walked across to the powerhall. Surrounded by steam trains and machinery, this made for a unique backdrop for the day and had all the guests talking! The new revolution gallery was the next venue at the MOSI, with the wedding breakfast and party taking place here. A huge digital sculpture took centre stage, with guests being able to take their photos and have them displayed within the exhibit!
Rich plays Rugby for Manchester rugby club and a few of the lads from the team enjoyed unleashing their dancing skills in the evening. With everyone in a party mood the dancefloor was packed when I headed home for the evening, my final wedding of the year documented!
