“Just been through the photos for the first time and I can’t tell you how happy we are. You’ve captured everything we hoped you would, it’s exceeded our expectations and we couldn’t be happier xKirsty and Jay, married at Manchester Art gallery 2022
I was lucky enough to be the Manchester Art Gallery wedding photographer for Kirsty and Jay’s winter wedding in late 2022. What a spectacular setting, and one I know well from personal visits, from days out crafting and looking around the exhibitions with the family, to listening to talks with amazing photographers such as Martin Parr! I’m lucky to have such a fantastic museum on my doorstep!
As a documentary wedding photographer, I want to tell the story of the day, and for these guys it was all about capturing their love for each other, along with a real desire to have an awesome party with family and friends. Kirsty and Jay told me before hand how much they loved the venue. I knew when documenting their day that I wanted the building and artworks to feature in their story.
The ceremony took place in the spectacular, gallery 16. Filled with iconic L.S. Lowry paintings, and works by Adolphe Valette (a favourite artist of ours, we have a print hanging at home!). Once the ceremony was finished, the guests were able to celebrate with the happy couple with canapés and drinks whilst enjoying the artwork in the victorian galleries and then headed to gallery 10 for speeches and a fabulous meal.
The day flowed seamlessly, and the various stages and room changes throughout the wedding day presented me with a new unique backdrop for my street photography style. The final setting was the Atrium, a striking setting at any viewing, but extra special at night, filled with lights and glitter ball! As Kirsty and Jay made their way down the steps for the first dance, the place erupted and party started!
