I have shot at Great John Street Hotel in Manchester many times and have always enjoyed it but never before have I been so lucky with the light conditions! There was a wonderful mixture of light temperature during the ceremony thanks to the candles which contrasted the daylight spilling in from behind. Then there was this incredible golden hour during the speeches which took place outside on the roof terrace. Now for Manchester this is lucky!
I got to know Joanna and Richard quite well before the wedding day and this made a nice difference to the way I worked. They plied me with wine during their home visit and ended up feeling more like friends than clients. I thoroughly enjoyed working on their wedding film and hope I get to see them again some time soon.
