We started with a pre-wedding shoot
Lydia and Alesha were the heroes of one of my earlier blog posts. A couple of months ago, I did their pre-wedding photo shoot. We had a jolly time as I took many swell photos of them in the vicinity of Swinton Civic Centre. And this time, I had the delight of being the photographer at their wedding, which took place at Copthorne Hotel Manchester.
The story started long time ago
A wedding day is more than a celebration; it is a time for reflection. It opens a window into prior times and allows us to see how past and present intermingle to create harmony. Alesha and Lydia met online back in 2016. Some unseen connection already existed between the two even when they met for their first date, a picnic at the park which was followed by a movie and a game of heads-up. It felt like time had accelerated its speed and at some point they realised that they had spent the whole day together.
Their third date was equally eventful. As the Liverpool Eye kept raising them above the urban landscape, opening a panoramic view of the city, Alesha read out a poem she had written herself, an ode dedicated to Lydia. And with the final verse recited, Alesha asked Lydia to be her girlfriend…
Copthorne Hotel Manchester – wedding day
With this we return to the present. Copthorne Hotel Manchester is a venue that stands right by the waterfront of Salford Quays. The couple does not keep up with the various wedding-related trends. They wanted their wedding to be grounded and personal, to revolve around the things they love and enjoy. Flowers, candles, and a bit of gold fused together to fill the room with a sense of love, connection, and fun.
A wedding day is also about everyone getting together. Naturally, the couple’s loved ones were there to witness this unique day at Copthorne Hotel Manchester. Dave and Alison, Lydia’s parents attended along with her brother, Alex. Sharon and Mark, Alesha’s mum and dad were there too. One could find Lydia’s and Alesha’s cousins and friends amongst the many attendees. Some of their loved ones met each other for the first time. Of course, I memorialised this occasion with many photos.
