This Saturday Manchester Town Hall is opening its doors for its first wedding fair of 2013. But this time I won’t be there as a wedding photography exhibitor, instead I’m going to be on the catwalk photographing their main event – the bridal fashion show. Taking centre stage in the Great Hall is bespoke wedding dress designer Melanie James who will be showcasing her collection and unveiling an exclusive new design. As a Manchester wedding photographer this is definitely an early highlight of the year - I’ll be shooting stunning vintage dresses in one of Manchester city centre’s most atmospheric venues. You don’t have to be a wedding photographer to appreciate the amazing setting!
Even though it’s a catwalk-show it’s still going to have that wedding feel because I’ll also be behind the scenes shooting the models as they get ready with Melanie James and make-up artist Zowie Pointing.
Having had a sneak-preview of some of the dresses, it’s without doubt an event not to be missed, so much so that they’re putting on two catwalk sessions – the first at 12pm and second at 3pm.
But if you can’t make it I’ll be putting up a selection of photographs from the event on my blog afterwards.
The Wedding Fair is on from 10am-4pm, entrance is free and there’s no need to book or have tickets. For more information go to, Manchester Town Hall Wedding Fair.
