A very cold Mercure Haydock Wedding
Having photographed weddings all over the UK and Europe, I finally had a chance to photograph a wedding at my local venue, the Mercure Hotel at Haydock.
Located on Penny Lane Haydock, the Mercure Hotel wedding venue provides everything you need for your wedding day. The ceremony room is very unique to this venue with its stained glass dome and stone pillars, it really does give you something special for your wedding ceremony.
Arriving at the Mercure hotel
After a short 5 minute drive from my home in Golborne, I arrived early at the hotel in Haydock ready to capture photographs of the ceremony room before the guests started to arrive. This was my first time at the hotel so I made sure to arrive early to have a look around and to pick out areas where I would take the group photos and formal photgraphs later in the day.
The Brides Arrival and Wedding Ceremony
Having captured the usual groom and guest arrival photos, I headed outside to capture the arrival photos. The bridesmaids arrived first and looked absolutely stunning in their floral blue dresses, ideal for what was a very cold Autumn wedding day. The were quickly followed by the arrival of the Bride Gill. What an amazing arrival, Gill picked the perfect wedding car, dress and those wedding flowers looked beautiful. The bridal party headed in the ceremony room where the groom awaited for this bride. The ceremony was beautiful full of emotion with lots of laughs and tears. After exchanging vows, wedding rings and the signing of the register, we headed outside for some quick photos before the typical Manchester weather arrived!
The wedding reception and beyond
After the wedding breakfast and speeches in the Racecourse Suite, the rest of the day seemed to go really quickly and the evening guests were soon arriving. The Racecourse Suite was soon full of evening guests and soon ready for the coming activities. Gill and Steve started out the evening activities with a game of Mr & Mrs before the customary cake cutting and first dance.
