I really don’t want to spoil this post by waffling on about how great it was to shoot at Victoria Warehouse in Manchester (it really was great). I don’t want to spoil it by trying to add keywords like Victoria Warehouse Wedding Photography or distract from the photos by trying to play a word association game just to get my post higher up on google. Such words as Industrial, hotel, stretford, trafford or Manchester United. I don’t want to go on and on about wedding dresses, confetti, bouquets and flowers, groomsmen, bridesmaids and best men. So here’s a little video.
Victoria Warehouse Wedding Photography
Oops, her I go again. I was really looking forward to this wedding and my first opportunity at Victoria Warehouse wedding photography. But I tell you what, it’s blooming dark in there. Tibo, my second shooter for the day looked a bit worried (He’s used to shooting at sunset on the French Riviera). But this is the kind of venue I really love to work in and introduce my own lighting to the scene. The venue is used for all sorts of functions and is pretty huge. It has so many original industrial features, some of which have been lovingly restored made into features of this grungy venue. Situated next to the Bridgewater Canal, the two warehouses were used throughout the 20th century for storing cotton and later as storage space for Kelloggs and Mcvities. The history is evident as bits of cotton, cornflakes and hobnob crumbs can still be seen in less used parts of the venue. I am joking of course, it’s very clean!
A photography perspective
This isn’t your traditional run of the mill wedding venue. It has no trees or grass, no bride and a distinct lack of windows! I love it. There are so many colours and textures to make for great images. I like that it’s unique and I like that it’s not mainstream wedding. It’s just a really cool venue for modern tasteful couples like Natasha and Mark who really knew what they wanted and they style they were going for. They were so much fun to work with and it was a real pleasure to have been involved in their wedding day. Congratulations to you both! x
