A Day of the Dead Art Gallery Wedding: Angie & Adam

Angie & Adam were married at Manchester Art Gallery, a fitting venue as the bride went to Manchester Metropolitan University to study art where she met her future husband. Angie wore a bespoke purple dress made for her by a friend who works in a theatre wardrobe department (currently with We Will Rock You!) They designed it together so Angie got just what she wanted.

The couple chose not to have bridesmaids or groomsmen. They entered their ceremony together. “We wanted to start as we mean to go on – together,” they explained. “We walked down the aisle holding hands and remained holding hands through the service. Also Angie’s a bit of a feminist and didn’t want to be given away.”

The reception had  Mexican/Day of the Dead Festival theme. They continued, “We wanted a colourful festival feel that would make the day fun for all our guests.  Also, we’re both creative people who like to get our hands dirty – so making the decorations was a must for us! Angie’s final exhibition for her art degree was also based around Mexican folk art and the day of the dead festival.”

Thank you to Angie & Adam and their photographers Foley Photography for sharing these today.

PS Angie has the best hair I’ve seen in a loooong time. Agreed?

    Clearly an indivdual event exactly as the couple wished it to be. Such a happy event, but relaxed too – not easy to achieve at weddings with so much pressure to get it right. Foley Photography you have captured such natural images with poise and composition that really gives you insight and the flavour of the day. The detail is exquisite, the portraits are priceless.

    Everything about this wedding is killer! her hair is amazing and healthy which is hard to get after dying bright colors! I’m in love with the holding hands down the isle idea. Amazing.
