Sale Town Hall Wedding Photos
Sale Town Hall is my local wedding venue and is only a few minutes walk from where I live. So it only seemed right that I did a blog dedicated to the Sale Town Hall wedding photos I’ve shot at this historic registry office.
Sale Town Hall is a bit of an overlooked gem when it comes to urban weddings. I think it’s got so much to offer when it comes to smaller, more intimate wedding days. With micro weddings being a growing trend in 2021, I would love to see more couples choose Sale Town Hall for their wedding. Good links into Manchester make Sale Town Hall a great alternative to Manchester Town Hall whilst its closed for refurbishment.
Although it was built in 1915, Sale Town Hall is now part of the modern Sale Waterside complex. You’ll be pleased to know that the recent development was sympathetic to the history of the building and many original features have been preserved. When you enter the building, the staircase will lead you up to beautiful stained glass windows which were restored in the 1950s after being destroyed during WW2.
The Old Council Chambers function as the ceremony room and are decorated in an 1930s Art Deco style. The ceremony room features lovely wood panelling and large windows to let in plenty of light. Outside the building, the set of steps is a great place for a group shot of all your guests. Just don’t forget to bring the confetti!
Sale Town Hall Wedding Photography
Sale Town Hall is nestled right next to the canal, which is a lovely little spot to take some wedding photographs straight after your ceremony. If you fancy having a longer portrait shoot on your wedding day, I recommend heading to Walkden Gardens. This quiet park is only 10 minutes drive from Sale Town Hall and is the perfect place for some natural wedding photographs.
Since Sale Town Hall is bang in the middle of the town centre, there’s a great selection of restaurants and bars nearby. If you’re keeping your wedding simple, you can book a meal in one of the restaurants offering private dining experiences. Mustard is one of my favourites; they do the best classic diner food, cocktails and milkshakes! And for a relaxed drinks reception, you can’t beat stylish Number 6 gin bar on Northenden Road. If you’re planning a larger reception, there’s plenty of space in Sale Waterside; the cinema and theatre space just next door.

Micro Wedding at Sale Town Hall
During 2020, micro weddings at Sale Town Hall became very popular (due to Covid restrictions in place at the time). Laura & Ed chose to tie the knot at Sale Town Hall and held an intimate ceremony for their 15 guests.
After getting married, I shot some Sale Town Hall wedding photos of Laura & Ed on the canal. Then everyone headed to the pub for a meal! The atmosphere of their wedding was very chilled, informal and also very cool. I absolutely loved Laura’s bridal jumpsuit!
Ed & Laura’s day was a memorable one for me because of the location of some of their wedding photos… I hadn’t shot in Sainsbury’s before for a start! The couple had met whilst working in the local store, so it was the natural choice to visit the aisle where they had first laid eyes on each other!
Canal Boat Wedding from Sale to Manchester
Marlon & Lorna booked me to shoot their Sale Town Hall wedding photos in summer 2019. These two planned their wedding at super short notice and pulled together their big day in under 4 weeks! It just goes to show that you don’t need to plan your wedding for ages to have a cracking good time with your nearest and dearest. I think you can see from their natural wedding photographs that all the guests had an amazingly good time and Marlon & Lorna didn’t stop smiling all day!
I love creating colourful wedding photography for my couples and I think my style really matched Marlon & Lorna’s fun-loving personalities. Lorna’s vibrant look was perfect for an urban wedding. I just loved the combination of her bohemian wedding dress, flower crown, bouquet of red roses and matching red lipstick.
After the excitement of getting married, Lorna & Marlon treated their guests to a cruise around Manchester. They hosted their wedding reception onboard the canal boat Emmeline Pankhurst. It was my first canal boat wedding and I thought it was a brilliant alternative wedding reception idea! It was a fantastic way for the guests to see some Manchester landmarks, whilst sharing a toast to the happy couple.
We started our cruise at Castlefield and travelled to Media City. We were all fascinated by the locks along the way! If that wasn’t enough entertainment, there was on-board karaoke for the guests to enjoy too!
Intimate Wedding at Sale Town Hall
Much like Laura & Ed’s micro wedding, Emilia & Nabil also had an intimate wedding at at Sale Town Hall. They kept their ceremony really small and asked their extended family and friends to give them a wave from the steps of the Town Hall as they came out. Later on, the wider family joined them on Zoom for their Bahai wedding ceremony from their living room!
Nabil & Emilia not only booked me for Sale Town Hall wedding photos, they also chose to have a portrait shoot in Manchester afterwards. Manchester is only 15 minutes away by car, so it was a great shout to visit the city centre for some special portraits near the local landmarks.
The benefit of having a small wedding is that you can organise your day to suit what you’d like to do!
