Sarah and Steve – The Monastery, Manchester

Sarah got ready for her wedding day in the Romeo and Juliet suite at the Malmaison Hotel in the centre of Manchester. So we parked up at the wedding venue, the spectacular Monastery in Gorton on the outskirts of Manchester, and took a taxi into town, which avoided having to worry about parking.

After capturing all the details and getting some pictures of Sarah and her girls, it was soon time to leave them to complete their preparations, and for us to get back to the Monastery.

The Monastery is actually mis-named as it was originally built as a Priory for Franciscan monks. It was designed by architect Edward Pugin whose father helped to design the Houses of Parliament, and parts of Eastnor Castle where we photographed Stella and Chris’s wedding a few weeks ago.

Over the years, the Monastery fell into a state of ruin, but it has now been beautifully restored and is a superb wedding venue.

Sarah and Steve like their cars, and had hired this vintage Pontiac Firebird in addition to a wedding car to ferry Sarah, and a vintage bus to transport their guests from the centre of Manchester.

This picture shows the full awesomeness of the Monastery, and why it makes such a great wedding venue.

There is some nice light to be found under the arches at the back of the building.

The lads were under strict instructions from Steve NOT to throw their (very expensive) top hats in the air. Nice try Steve.

This is the original alter that was saved during the refurbishment of the building.
