Before getting to Hallé St Peters, Kev and Rox started off with a lovely service at Holy Angels Catholic Church in Hale Barns, just south of Manchester. On editing these wedding photos I got very emotional. Seeing them stop to wave to grandma, who was watching the service via a video call, set me off. She was unable to make it to the service in person. You can see in the photographs the emotion in Rox too, as they continued down the aisle and outside the church.

Wedding Photography at Hallé St Peters

After a brief stop for some photos in the fading golden winter light, we continued onto Manchester City Centre. Ancoats to be precise. Hallé St Peters was the next and final stop for the wedding reception. This deconsecrated grade II listed church has many original features, with high ceilings, it is a huge space that can hold up to 250 wedding guests. I needed to put on the wide angle lens in order to capture the full majesty of this wedding venue. During the week it is home to the famous Hallé Orchestra and Choir, where they rehearse and record. There was more of a disco beat ringing through the hall for this Hallé St Peters wedding though! The food and the addition of a belly dancer was a clear nod to Rox’s Iranian heritage and was both delicious and fun respectively!
