Saturday’s wedding fair at Manchester Town Hall was a superb event. The place was packed with couples checking out the vintage buses, exhibitors, sampling buffet food and or course watching Melanie James catwalk show, which I also had the pleasure of photographing.

The audience were treated to an hour-long show where she showcased 38 of her stunning designs. Every single one was incredible; they’re all hand-made vintage wedding dresses with accessories to die for. The dresses combined with Zowie Pointing’s Hairdessing work and Emmelia Clarke's Makeup work made it a killer show.

Of course no ‘wedding day’ is complete without a hitch, luckily when the string quartet were delayed for the first catwalk session Vintage78 DJs stepped in with his decks. The models sashaying down the run way to the likes of Ella Fitzgerald suited the style of the dresses perfectly.

If photographing the catwalk wasn’t enough, I was also give special permission to photograph the dresses in parts of the Town Hall that wedding photographers don’t normally get to access. Usually at a wedding there isn’t time to do this, so I took full advantage of going behind the scenes and scouting out new and exciting backdrops for the next wedding.  I can’t imagine many other wedding photographers in Manchester getting to do that before!

All in all it was a brilliant day. The eight models did a great job with so many dress and were professional throughout, Zowie’s make up was impeccable, but of course Melanie’s dresses absolutely stole the day.
