The extraordinary St Francis Monastery in Gorton

This wedding  was exceptional for many reasons. First, the couple were just so much fun – David and Rachel were so easy to photograph. Their bridal party added to the mix with plenty of laughs and smiles but the icing on the cake was the amazing Monastery of St Francis in Gorton, Manchester. This venue is quite unlike any other I’ve photographed in. It’s a disused monastery that was well on its way to wrack and ruin when it was saved and put to new use in 2007 following a £6.5 million restoration project. It’s well worth a visit, let alone a wedding! The Monastery provided a sublime backdrop to Rachel and David’s wedding photography.
