Modern urban jungle wedding inspiration at Manchester Hall with Daniel Chu wedding dresses

I love city weddings that have a modern feel. It is usually chic fashion-conscious couples that head to the city to celebrate their day! And, this is what I wanted to achieve in this shoot. Keeping the colours sleek but bold with black, gold and green, allowing the couple and Manchester's backdrop to really steal the show!

Manchester Hall

When I visited Manchester Hall I fell in love with the modern glassed design of their terrace room, I think this type of design really suits a city wedding. It was a blank canvas with the cityscape backdrop, so really allowed us to get creative with the styling and let the focus be on the couple!


Bridal Fashion

I wanted a dress to suit the fun city vibe Manchester has to offer which allowed us to run around the streets and create lots of movement. Daniel Chu made three stunning bespoke dresses which blew me away. It was everything the modern city bride would love. Flawless makeup and hair finished brides perfect city look.

Anthuriums and orchids make up the bridal bouquet bringing a little bit of the topics to this urban setting

This modern urban jungle theme combined Manchester's rooftop cityscape with tropical greens and golds.
