Katie & Joe


You know those weddings that just work. When everything in the universe seems to just slot into place. The location, the weather, the reception and the people. Well this was one of those weddings. And I am super excited to be sharing a sneak peek of it with you tonight.

When I first met up with Katie & Joe a year ago, I instantly knew I wanted them to book me there and then, because they were fun, hilarious, totally in love, and were planning a wedding completely unique and extraordinary. Which as we know, is completely up my street.

Their chosen ceremony venue was The Manchester Art Gallery which was the absolute perfect setting for a simple and elegant wedding with a difference. The sun was streaming through the glass & steel frame of the gallery lighting it up, and creating the most amazing shadows around the gallery. Following the ceremony they had their drinks reception in the gallery itself, where guests could potter about and view all the incredible art work.

From here they all wandered on over to Tapeo & Wine - a stunning Tapas Bar in the heart of Manchester. This might seem like a random choice for their reception, but on the contrary it was the perfect location as Joe is half Spanish! (When a British Tapas bar is frequented by actual Spanish people, you know it's a good'n). And let's just say I was not disappointed, the food, the atmosphere, everything was perfection! Especially the way the Katie & Joe had decorated it with little bottles of wild flowers, personalised names on each place setting, and a cake covered in colourful petals.

If all of this wasn't enough to keep you satisfied then you will just have to scroll to see more!

I just want to say a HUGE thank you to Katie & Joe and all their amazing family and friends, for making me feel like one of the family. And for just being so amazing!
