Chancellors Hotel Wedding Photography Tips
Chancellors Hotel has recently been refurbished with a great neutral palette. The interior would complement pretty much any colour theme.
I’d love to share a few tips to get the best out of the grounds.
- If it’s raining, there’s a handy cover over the conservatory area that means group photos can be shot with the gardens in the backdrop without guests getting wet. Perfect for Manchester’s trademark weather!
- In harsh sunlight, the trees provide a good amount of shade for small group photos and couple portraits.
- Wedding cars typically drop the bride off at the back entrance. The cars in the background can be a little distracting. Consider stopping for a photo before the car turns the corner into the venue, or stop for a quick photo in the courtyard instead.
- The garden is surrounded by tall trees, but sun-flare shots are still possible. The timing just needs to be perfect! I use an app called ‘Sunseekers’ which will tell me the exact time on your wedding day that we’d be able to create a photo like the one below.
