The Holy Trinity Church

Sav met us at the church. The Holy Trinity on Oldham Road in Failsworth. A beautiful church with a fantastic spire ! And only 5 minutes away from Smokies Hotel !

Lucy {and I’m sure Sav had some input ;-) } had planned the day perfectly and had left plenty of time to allow us to go and and get some great photo’s of the couple.

{ If you are getting married at Smokies or having your wedding reception there…then In my opinion, Smokies Hotel is a fantastic location for your wedding but you do need to allow a little time to go elsewhere to get some great photo’s…unfortunately Smokies Hotel doesn’t have a great area for wedding photo’s, there’s a fountain area, but it’s in the middle of the carpark, and a little grassed area in front of the restaurant. These are fine for a few smaller group shots, or individual portraits, but the only place to do larger group shots is in the carpark! }

…so we headed back off towards Smokies Hotel, stopping off at an old Iron Works.

So of we headed back to Smokies Hotel…in style ! I probably shouldn’t drive with a camera hanging out of the car …

There’s a lot of car park at Smokies ! But fortunately there is a little grassed area in front of the restaurant that makes a great spot for smaller group shots!
