A marriage made in heaven: Vickerstaff Photography and The Place Hotel

Vickerstaff Photography at The Place Hotel (16)
Knowing a wedding venue inside out, loving its features and being passionate about photography is what makes a wedding photographer very special indeed. Today’s wedding blog is the perfect example. Following on from yesterday’s glamorous Manchester bridal shoot, today we’re focusing on the delicious photography and super chic setting of The Place Hotel in Manchester.

I’d introduce Vickerstaff Photography myself, but I did that yesterday. So I’m using a great blog comment from last week instead:

I recently met Jamie at one of our monthly North West Photographer’s jaunts. Such an affa­ble guy. I told him that I like his work. Have done for about 2 years but this was the first time he met me. This post just re-affirms my belief. The atten­tion to the details. To story telling. To the for­mal por­trai­ture. The qual­ity of the fin­ish­ing on the images… all top notch.” Read more… by Anurag Sharma

Vickerstaff Photography – Jamie and Tory – photographed this wedding at The Place Hotel  in 2011. Jamie commented at the time, “Ivanka & Ashley’s deci­sion to book The Place Hotel for me was the best ever! I was like a kid in a candy store: it is such a great venue for photographs.” – and The Place Hotel were just as delighted with the images.

Vickerstaff Photography at The Place Hotel (2)The trick to finding a wedding photographer who really stands out from the crowd is to look for distinctive images on their website or blog. A photographer who has shot weddings at your venue before is the first thing to look for. Then see how creative they can be:

Look for a wedding photographer who sees every wedding through fresh eyes. Vickerstaff Photography are great at this: no two weddings are the same for Jamie and Tory. They create fresh, beautiful and individual wedding photographs, inspired by their brides and grooms as well as wedding venues like The Place Hotel. And this is what makes them stand out from the crowd.

Once again, I’m going to quote Anurag Sharma, another North West wedding photographer, as he left such a lovely blog comment for Vickerstaff Photography recently:

“Take the sign­ing of the reg­is­ter. A tedious set up forced upon us pho­tog­ra­phers by min­is­ters and reg­is­trars the land over. Jamie, like a num­ber of us would do, waited. He waited for the other things that hap­pen away from that norm. Sure we pho­to­graph the staged shot but the fun is in what hap­pens in between.

You can see this in the shot where the min­is­ter is writ­ing and the bride is enjoy­ing a won­der­ful moment with her bridesmaids. This says so much more about the mood, the cama­raderie and the day than any staged reg­is­ter sign­ing shot could ever do.”

About Manchester’s Place Hotel wedding venue

As a Grade II listed hotel it means the building you are holding your special occasion or staying in has a unique significance beyond its mere locality and every effort should be made to preserve it for future generations.

The Place Hotel has transformed itself into a 107 apartment styled hotel complete with 2 stunning function rooms and conference centre. Funky light fittings, comfortable sofas and elegant coffee tables fuse with the red brick and iron work into an almost decadent effect, while at the same time remaining graceful, understated and charming.

The Place Hotel has managed to achieve the perfect balance of old and new, contemporary styling along side modern fixtures which compliment the Grade II features perfectly, ultimately creating an unforgettable, unique space.

These are wedding photographers who will consider the venue you’ve chosen for your wedding more carefully than most. They’ll look for ways to make your wedding photography special, different and perfect for you.

It makes them a very special team if you ask me – and I’m sure they’ll be hot property on all the top UK wedding blogs in the not-too-distant future!

    Lovely images from J&T, I like the use of the internal architecture and the vibrant colours. I’m not sure I agree with one point though Claire – “A photographer who has shot weddings at your venue before is the first thing to look for.” A good photographer could show you amazing images from almost anywhere and having visited a venue before shouldn’t be a prerequisite. If a photographer is creative and has a keen eye, they can turn the most drab of surroundings in to something special even with just a quick scout around.

    I’d sooner take Jamie to a venue he’d never been to before than a less experienced photographer I didn’t know who had 😉
