AN ECLECTIC DREAM

My return to this eclectic dream for some more Didsbury House Hotel wedding photography. Hands down, this place has to be one of my favourite places to shoot a wedding. I was lucky enough to get back here down to these awesome people, Marianne + Will, who booked me to capture their relaxed vibe and documentary heaven of a wedding. Didsbury House is one of those places that makes your head turn, its alternative style and layout is different from most wedding venues and it looks ace in photos. Its close-quarter layout makes it perfect for my style of documentary photography. This Victorian townhouse is an exclusive wedding venue, so you only get to share the day with your family and friends. Exclusivity means guests can be themselves, which I love and I do notice how much more relaxed people are in an exclusive space.

PHOTOGRAPHING IN A VICTORIAN WEDDING HOUSE

Being in a house, the guests are kept in close proximity to one another which pushes more social interactions. This makes it easy to capture moments between everyone at a wedding. I’m huge fan of framing my photos with objects and people to give my photos a feel like the viewer is part of the wedding day, and so with shooting on a wide lens and getting quite close, the viewer also feels connected. The house is great to use for portraits, I took Marianne + Will around the house after their ceremony get some lovely shots of them both. These guys are so photogenic, I loved to take their picture in an alternative style and capture some relaxed stuff with them, where I just got these two to interact with each other.

A CLEAN WEDDING THEME

Marianne + Will decided to pursue a modern and clean theme for their wedding day. Staying quite neutral, the theme ran along perfectly with the venue, very elegant and classy. The flowers at the wedding, by The flower Lounge in Didsbury, were nicely arranged in a two-tone colour pallet using only whites & greens. I was also very impressed to learn that these two had created their own stationery for their wedding, it appears that Marianne is quite the designer! She put together the menus and signs that were dotted all around the wedding venue. I totally dig it when couples put their own mark on their wedding day, it makes it all the more special. These two also love their movies, hence why they named their tables after their favourite films! Nice! In addition to all of the above creativity, another sentimental touch to this wedding was that Marianne was driven to Didsbury House Hotel in the Smith (Will’s family) family car. This was a classic Bentley that has been in Will’s family for a long time and was driven by Will’s brother.
