The Great John Street Hotel - Central Manchester City Wedding Photographs

Lauren & James 24/09/2017

by Nick English Photography - Lancashire & Cheshire Wedding Photographer

When Lauren and James booked me to photograph their Great John Street wedding, I knew it was going to be amazing, and something very different!

I hadnt't photographed a city-centre wedding before, and was really excited about the idea of being able to take photographs in my favourite city, Manchester!

Manchester City Wedding Venue Photographs

Great John Street is a really quirky wedding venue, it is an old school dating back to 1912, where the playground was actually on the roof of the building! Nowadays, the playground is the wedding terrace - where guests at Lauren and James' wedding enjoyed
spending the day outside with drinks and canapes on the roof - overlooking the Manchester skyline - how cool is that!

The outdoor BBQ meal was a brilliant idea - and the smell of the food cooking was making everyone hungry!

Relaxed Informal Wedding Photography Manchester

Lauren & James wanted some informal, natural photographs of themselves and their guests enjoying the day, without the photographer constantly stopping the day for posed photos - this was perfect for me, leaving me to capture the natural atmosphere and fun of the day, and some lovely genuine moments, rather than more traditional wedding photography.

We even went for a walk through the city at night for some photos, which was my favourite part of the day!

Here's a few photographs from their amazing Manchester city centre wedding!
