It was nice to be filming in Manchester again, this time for Claire & Simon’s Jewish wedding. Claire & Simon had tons of energy and I really enjoyed my time with them. Their day started with bridal preparations, which is always a great opportunity to relax into things and get some great shots!! After the preparations it was off to the Manchester Reform Synagogue on Jacksons Row to film the Tish. A traditional Jewish wedding always begins with the grooms tish (which is Yiddish for table) and basically consists of the men heckling the groom and drinking whisky!! Always a great part of any Jewish wedding video!! After the Tish the bride arrived and after the B’deken (veiling of the bride) had taken place everyone made their way towards the Huppah (canopy) where their Jewish wedding ceremony took place. Due to limited space I was only allowed to film from the balcony which was a little unusual but with a little planning managed to capture everything. After the wedding ceremony we headed to the Lowry Hotel in Manchester where I have filmed a number of Jewish wedding videos in the past - so I was on familiar ground. The Lowry Hotel is a great wedding venue and as always they did a superb job of decorating the room where the reception was held. The lights were amazing and once the bride and Groom entered the action was none stop with jewish dancing, speeches and much more jewish dancing filling the rest of the night. I love jewish weddings and really enjoyed my time with Claire and Simon!! Here are the Jewish wedding video highlights from their day!! Enjoy!!
