Albert Hall Manchester Wedding Photography
I’m very excited to share some Albert Hall Manchester wedding photography with you today! Albert Hall is arguably Manchester’s most iconic music venue. Every time I visit for a gig, I always admire the beautiful stained glass windows, the antique organ above the stage, the textured walls and the colourfully tiled corridors. Over the past few years, Albert Hall became number one on my wedding venue bucket list. So it was brilliant to tick it off with a bang shooting Lily & Tom’s amazing wedding on Saturday!
Tom & Lily hosted a simply stunning wedding day that was full of love, fun and surprises. From start to finish, the guests enjoyed themselves immensely and there was so much laughter from all around. Lily & Tom were having a ball too and it was such a pleasure to celebrate the occasion with them. It was also great to have Imogen second shooting and Jo on video duty (teamwork makes the dreamwork!)

Regular readers will know I’m a sucker for pets at weddings, so I was thrilled to find Honey the Dog of Honour at the heart of the action in the morning. She is such a sweet pooch and got lots of fuss off Jo and I whilst the girls got ready. There was lots happening in the morning, with Lily’s bridesmaids finishing off the homemade tulip bouquets as well as getting pampered. Lily told me she had grown over 3,000 tulips especially for the wedding! It was well worth the effort as they made such a colourful impact on the day.
I loved Lily & her bridesmaids style. The grey sequinned bridesmaids dresses were individual and perfect for a night of partying at Albert Hall. Lily’s gorgeous dress was an elegant modern style with beautiful beaded detail on the back. Plus, much to Lily’s delight, it had pockets!

It was soon time to head to Albert Hall for the ceremony, which had been beautifully decorated with all those colourful tulips. Tom was understandably teary as Lily walked down the aisle to join him on the stage. (It was wonderful to hear all the guests clap as Lily walked in too!) They said their personal vows and promises on stage with their bridal party, whilst their guests looked on from the balcony. Tom & Lily had arranged for an artist to paint the ceremony and I can’t wait to see the finished piece!
The big surprise of the day came later on when Lily & Tom took to the floor for their first dance. They wowed all their guests with a special choreographed number, complete with confetti canons! The surprises just kept on coming when Lily joined the band on stage to sing I Would Do Anything for Love by Meatloaf. Lily has a wonderful singing voice and seeing her perform delighted all the guests. They loved it all the more when Tom joined Lily on stage to sing the last line!
Wow, what a day we had capturing your wedding Lily & Tom! Congratulations and thank you for having us along.
