Manchester Town Hall Chinese Wedding Photography – David+Diana

Manchester Town Hall Chinese Wedding Photography – David+Diana

Manchester Town Hall Chinese Wedding Photography – David+Diana’s fabulous wedding in one of Manchester’s best ceremony locations, with their reception at Glamorous restaurant.

I hadn’t shot a Chinese wedding in a couple of years, and previous ones had been where only one of the couple were Chinese so it wasn’t as full on, so I was super excited about David and Diana’s day.

I met Diana at home at 8am where she was having hair and make-up done. After getting some documentary coverage, it was time for games and then the tea ceremonies. The couple lived round the corner from each other, so the back and forwards between tea ceremonies was fairly quick, which for such an action packed day was a bonus!

After the tea ceremonies, I headed in to town to be at Manchester Town Hall for Diana’s arrival. I can’t tell you how much I loved this venue! David and Diana wanted lots of family group combinations afterwards, and there wasn’t a lot of time but I got through the post ceremony group list in under 20 minutes, so that left plenty of time for the couple portraits.

The couple received 850 high resolution pictures on a high speed USB drive. I went round all of the tables in Glamorous and got pictures of all guests, plus there were more group shots at the restaurant itself as there were more guests there than had been at the ceremony at Manchester Town Hall. After the meal there was the firecrackers, with everyone moving outside to see that and the first dance – where Diana featured another gorgeous dress.

Here’s a selection of my favourite pictures from throughout the day:
