Mick & Becky got married at Great John Street Hotel.

February 29th, 2012

You’ll love this wedding…

Mick and Becky are anoth­er one of my Man­ches­ter cou­ples who booked me after see­ing Matt and Annie’s wed­ding. It’s the wed­ding that fea­tures on the home page which has been up there since time began real­ly. If you’ve not had a chance to check out, do so because there are some big changes com­ing to this site soon.

Becky chose to get ready at her par­en­t’s beau­ti­ful house in Stock­port, a house that, full of care­ful­ly select­ed art work, was an absolute plea­sure to be in.
Then they picked Great John Street hotel in the cen­tre on Man­ches­ter to host their wed­ding cer­e­mo­ny and reception.

Both Becky and Mick work in a sec­ondary school, and Great John Street Hotel was an old school that has lov­ing­ly been remod­elled into it’s cur­rent state, so it appeared to be the nat­ur­al place to hold an amaz­ing day.
Becky and Mick had clear­ly put in a lot of effort into mak­ing their day unfor­get­table. Like all wed­dings I shoot though, I am always very inter­est­ed in the guests as they real­ly do make the day.
These guests were no excep­tion at all. A fan­tas­tic bunch of people.

At each wed­ding, I learn some­thing. Usu­al­ly it’s about tech­nique, or human behav­iour or myself.
This time my les­son was: Don’t wear new shoes to a wed­ding. Stu­pid stu­pid stupid.

Any­way, have fun look­ing through these pictures.
I hope you’ll feel that you were one of the guests.

    Some crack­ing shots Joseph, real­ly good grit on the mono­chromes too, which is exact­ly the way I like to serve up my black and whites too. Love the cheeky obser­va­tions too, in par­tic­u­lar the brick chim­ney with mod­ern sky­scrap­ers behind; sub­tle sir. Nice one!

    Superb work Mr Yarrow, lov­ing the fram­ing and processing!

    Dude, I am lov­ing your black and whites. awe­some work.

    “You’ll love this wed­ding…” — you are not wrong! WOW WOW WOW!! I love the details in the things that you spot­ted — the hearts on the stair­case — and i loved the art work on the walls — and the con­trast of the brick chim­ney and the mod­ern build­ing — AND of course all those beau­ti­ful moments shared between loved ones xx

  7. Lyn Ismael-Bennett March 2nd, 2012 at 1:16 am

    It looks like every­one had a great time. I love the shot of the bride wip­ing her tear while every­one cheered in the back­ground. Well done.

    Love­ly doc­u­men­ta­tion Sir!

    Superb set, looks like a fan­tas­tic day and great B&W work! Love the one of the grooms­men on the front row, bril­liant cap­ture, and the bride wip­ing the tear dur­ing the toast is a won­der­ful shot. Also, speak­ing as a fan of the Beetham Tow­er it’s nice to see it fea­tur­ing in there :P
