IF YOU LOVE A GOOD PARTY THEN YOU’LL FIND TONS OF INSPO FROM THIS MANCHESTER ELOPEMENT WEDDING!
Gena and Simon got married at the lovely Town Hall, Manchester. It was a super fun elopement wedding, with gorgeous details, and incredible food and cocktails to keep guests entertained.
The ceremony took place at the Pankhurst Suite at the local town hall in Manchester City Centre. The ceremony was really cosy and intimate which was lovely. The ceremony included a beautiful reading, it really was a wonderful occasion, full of private smiles and nervous giggles.
After the ceremony, we took a short walk through the city to the reception, which was a great time for the newly married couple to have some time to let it sink in, and I got some really fun photos of the couple wandering through the city! The weather at this Manchester elopement wedding was a little chilly being mid-November, but that didn’t bother them at all.
The Manchester elopement wedding
The reception was held at the amazing Tast Resturant in Manchester. Tast is a perfect venue for intimate wedding receptions because the food and drinks are incredible, and it’s got such a romantic vibe, especially in the main room upstairs when the candles and fairy lights are glowing.
For the reception, the couple had organised a cocktail drinks reception for their guests, and everyone had such a great time. Guests were then called upstairs to a private seating area for speeches and dinner, which was a five course menu with some of the best food I’ve ever had – honestly, I’ve never had a vegan cheeseboard before and now I don’t think I can live without one, it was all delicious.
The evening ended with the couple heading off into town with their nearest and dearest to a Karaoke Bar, which was such a wonderful idea, and everyone had a great time. The whole Manchester elopement wedding was so laid back, from the bride’s sequin dress to the wonderful speeches.
