The wedding reception of Rozita and Reza was held at the fantastic Place Apartment Hotel in Manchester City Centre, back in March. When I first met Rozita, she told me she was looking for a full day wedding photographer to cover her special day, but the thing was that they were already married and there was not going to be a formal ceremony or exchange of vows…..just a celebration. She then explained it was for for friends and family in the Uk to get together to celebrate….so essentially a party. Perfect. The day started at their house in Manchester for the preparations, but there was one thing missing….the bride. She was at the hair dressers trying out various styles which left me to do the bridal preparations, without a bride. I did have the groom and all their friends to keep me busy though. When Rozita did arrive, all the guests had gone to the reception with the exception of the groom Reza who, was there to help Rozita get in her wedding dress….something I’ve never photographed before….but unique and beautiful. And she looked stunning.
When I arrived at The Place in Manchester, there was no hanging around, Rozita and Reza rushed straight into the reception to greet their guests, just like after the wedding ceremony….I did feel a little confused but still having a great time.
We then toured The Place for a portrait session, as the weather was cold and damp and also dark by this point we stayed indoors but we were not disappointed. There’s so much variety, from little hidden areas to huge open spaces, it was fantastic. We had such a great time and Rozita and Reza were fantastic to work with.
The evening reception was incredible, after a delicious meal the celebrations stepped up to another level. Lots of loud music and dancing, awesome. I was blown away by the dancing, great to watch and everyone joined in, even me at one point.
I had an amazing day and I’d like to wish Rozita and Reza all the best for the future, it was a pleasure being your wedding photographer.
