We absolutely love a styled shoot. At our wedding shows and fairs we meet and become friends with wedding suppliers across the region, and styled shoots are a great way to show their creativity and introduce our Brides and Grooms to Great Northern Wedding Venues.
Our location for the day was On The 7th, an exclusive private members club located in the heart of MediaCityUK and part of Eclectic Hotel Collection which includes Great John Street, Didsbury House & Eleven Didsbury Park. Designed in their Eclectic iconic style, On The 7th is the perfect setting for your special day overlooking the lit-up sky of MediaCityUK.
With several spaces licensed for an intimate civil ceremony from 20 guests to 150, On The 7th can host your whole day. A formal wedding breakfast can be held in their rustic house Pantry, alternatively if you are looking for an informal option the Eclectic menus have something for everyone from canapés to midnight munchies.
The club can be hired exclusively on the weekends for the ultimate party place where brides, grooms and guests can dance the night away. With a late night bar service and no restrictions on music couples can hire in a live band or turn the DJ up for a night never to be forgotten.
End your special day in true Eclectic style by spending the night at one of the Eclectic hotels. Accommodation packages can be arranged at our sister hotels located only 10 minutes away from Media City.

The Dollz by Samantha Mercer
Samantha is one of those “I Don’t Know How She Does It” women. A strong entrepreneur with a thriving, well-established business with several diverse factions, for this shoot The Dollz worked their magic with hair and make-up and the venue styling props were supplied by The Dollz Events.
Our model for the day, Becky, absolutely loved the look and feel of the Temptu airbrush system make-up expertly applied by The Dollz team. The technology of Temptu transforms the Airpod Foundation into a micro-fine mist, creating sheer, weightless layers of buildable coverage proven to deliver less makeup for a more perfected finish. No lines. No streaking. Just an even, soft-focus finish.
The Dollz Events team supplied piñatas, ivy rings and candle holders – a small glimpse of their styling props range that is available to style your wedding. They painstakingly handmade hundreds of origami cranes to create this wonderful shot – the most imaginative take on confetti ever!
Bouquets by Red Floral Architecture
The spectacular bouquets were created by the team at Red Floral Architecture, the lead colour of yellow is just perfect for a Spring wedding, Red Floral Architecture has a well-deserved reputation for its designs via its philosophy, derived from fashion, season, colour, environment and striking design skill, whilst the central inspiration at all times has remained the flowers themselves.
