Great John Street Hotel Wedding Photography
Kate and Jeanette's amazing city wedding
I couldn’t believe my luck when my first opportunity for Great John Street Hotel Wedding Photography came around. Not only because this is one seriously cool venue, part of the Eclectic Hotels Manchester Collection no less, but more importantly this was the wedding of two of my lovely friends, Jeanette and Kate.
Jeanette and Kate have been close friends of my wife for many years. They are two of the loveliest and funniest people you could hope to meet and are absolutely great together, so when my wife and I heard they were getting married, we were over the moon. Then, when they asked me to be their Great John Street Hotel wedding photographer I was so touched.
Great John Street Hotel Ceremony
Their day began with both Jeanette and Kate getting ready in the hotel, with just a floor to separate them. The rooms in Great John Street Hotel are incredible, full of character and a dream for any photographer. This was a fantastic opportunity for me to jump from room to room, to capture their own separate mornings. Soon it was time for them to make their separate ways upstairs to the top of the hotel to say their ‘I do’s. I’ve shot many weddings and with each and every one I always feel incredibly privileged to be up there, with the best seat in the house watching as the ceremony unfolds. Tears, laughter, moments unique to every single wedding. So when it comes to wedding photography of your own friends, that sense of honour goes off the charts!
After the ceremony, Jeanette, Kate and their guests headed out on to the Great John Street Hotel’s stunning roof terrace, which boasts incredible views across the city. After some drinks live music by Michael Mulholland and a lot of laughs, Jeanette and Kate stepped out of the hotel for a few minutes. A perfect way to have a little time to themselves and of course a great opportunity for me to capture some sweet moments between the two of them. It was then time to head back upstairs for fantastic speeches, great food, fantastic company and funky dance moves. Here is just a small selection of Jeanette and Kate’s beautifully memorable Great John Street Wedding Photography.
