On Easter Saturday I had the privilege of helping fellow photographer Richard Mather with a wedding held at The Monastery, Gorton in Manchester. The venue is perfect for hosting a wedding and a great location for wedding photograph. The Monastery is a huge almost cathedral like building that has had a massive multi-million pound make over and looks so much the better for it. We were well looked after by the staff at The Monastery who made sure we to felt welcome.
When I was asked to shoot at The Monastery I immediately checked out the venue website and the weather (something you check regularly as a wedding photographer). It was forecast rain, rain and you guessed it rain! But my sun dance the day before seemed to work as the rain held off and we actually had sunshine! In-conjunction with the weather the days events ran flawlessly. A wedding with two cultures, English and Nigerian, made for a beautiful wedding to photograph, the colours, food, superb Nigerian music and dancing made for a great day where everyone had a blast!
Enough of me reminissing about the day, here are a few of the images……
Now that’s a church….or in this case a Monastery.
No sign of nerves here…
Love this photo…a prayer before the big moment.
