An Elegant Autumn Wedding in Manchester
The stars definitely aligned when Katie & Nikil met. The kindest of souls with huge hearts and love for one another. What a pleasure it was being asked to be part of their autumn wedding in Manchester.
They chose Manchester Town Hall to host their celebrations and it was my first time photographing inside the Main Hall. This gothic building is one of my favourite venues. The tiled flooring and winding staircases are what make it so iconic. It’s the perfect place for a stylish city wedding.

Katie chose an elegent Demetrios dress paired with Jenny Packham champagne heels and a long veil. The couple’s vibrant colour scheme of red, purple and orange were reflected in Katie’s beautiful bouquet created by Siân from the Flower Lounge.
As Katie and her bridesmaids were ready to make their way into the Town Hall, I loved the moment she had with her Dad as he kissed his daughter. He looked so proud as they walked down the aisle to meet Nikil.
Portraits around Manchester Town Hall
What I love about this venue is endless opportunities for photos. It was great to escape with the couple for some natural shots of them together including the balcony which overlooks the central courtyard of the building. Later in the evening we took advantage of the street lights for some romantic shots in the arches. I had a brilliant day capturing Katie & Nikil’s wedding, which ended with some epic tunes from the Jukebox Band.
Here are some lovely words from Katie:
“Emilie is a special kind of wedding photographer – she not only instantly knew the style of images that we were looking for, but put our minds at rest when we were nervous about the process beforehand, calmed us down in the middle of the hectic wedding day and had an eye for seeing those little moments that make perfect shots on the day. She captured our wedding day – and the feeling of the day – so beautifully that I cried tears of joy when we received our wedding pictures – I can’t recommend her highly enough.”
