The Castlefield Rooms Wedding Photography

James & Emma’s rustic wedding last month at the Castlefield Rooms was perfect. I was lucky enough to be able to photograph and film James & Emma’s special day and I loved every minute of it! Emma and James wanted a Rustic/Vintage feel to the wedding and Emma was keen to put her touch on the wedding with some DIY projects and carefully planning most of the wedding herself. The dress was a Vintage Lace Fishtail with custom alterations and High wedged platforms in ivory with lace details down the side from Etsy.

The Castlefield Rooms as a wedding venue

The Castlefield Rooms is one of my favourite City Centre venues in Manchester, the Castlefield area is simply beautiful. Surrounded by the lovely Bridgewater Canal and some stunning urban spots for photographs it really is a great place for a wedding. The Castlefield Rooms above Dukes 92 is a superb wedding venue. The staff are fantastic and help to keep everything running smoothly.

If you are looking for a Manchester City Centre wedding venue then I’d honestly recommend checking out the Castlefield Rooms, its a beautiful venue inside and from a photography perspective the Castlefield area is perfect.
