Hannah and Paddy’s Manchester Art Gallery wedding had a laid back, super cool vibe, one that perfectly reflected them and their relationship. The bride in particular, wanted to feel like herself on the day so she opted to wear a sharp white suit from The Kooples rather than a dress and she didn’t carry a bouquet.
“Our wedding was lush, relaxed, simple”, she said. “We had a lot of monochrome, but also a lot of greenery, which really complemented the gorgeous art work in the gallery. We wanted a pared-back and clean atmosphere, but that kept away from the clinical side of minimalist.”
“We scattered eucalyptus on the tables and used as part of the name cards, so the room smelled amazing. All our tables were named after our favourite Manchester pubs and bars, so the Top Table was ‘Temple’, which is an amazing underground bar on Oxford Rd, and Paddy’s favourite place in the world. We hired in some extra lighting, so the stone walls of the gallery had a really warm orange glow as the night came in.”
It goes without saying that if you don’t want to see naked bodies then you probably shouldn’t read this post! I think these are completely and utterly beautiful.
Nikki and Mark wanted their engagement shoot to be intimate, sensual and artistic so decided to strip off and use it to connect back to the core of who they both are.
The shoot took place in Bruce Peninsula national park in Tobermory, Ontario. Photographer Liat explains, “Everything I create is emotionally driven. I strive for something fantastical, something more than simply another aimless photo in what appears to be a visually saturated world. I look for meaning, for authenticity, and magic in everything I do.”
