Engagement shoot in Heaton Park – Manchester wedding photographer
Vicki & Joe turned up to their pre-wedding photo shoot looking very relaxed. When we met up at Heaton Park, the sun was out and we made the most of the park’s landmarks. First up was The Temple. Designed in 1800 and set on the highest point in Manchester with some fantastic views over the city centre and surrounding hills and countryside.
I had planned to take some shots around the hall and orangery but unfortunately the whole area had been fenced off, so that put paid to that idea! No worries though as the park is so big there were plenty of other places for us to use. Or so we thought! My next plan was to use the impressive stone columns of the old Town Hall. Joe knew the way and we soon ended up at our destination. Sadly though, the whole area was fenced off yet again, permanently this time with quite high fencing. We still managed to get the columns in the photos though by using a few crafty camera angles. The sun soon went in and the skies turned grey, then the drizzle started, luckily we were sheltered by the trees so it didn’t stop us.
As we wandered around the park we chatted about Vicki & Joe’s upcoming wedding which is taking place at the Worsley Marriot in Manchester in November. It sounds like everything is well in hand and I’m really looking forward to photographing their wedding day. In between all the chatting and walking around, we did manage to squeeze in a few pictures here and there.
Vicki & Joe – thank you for spending your Sunday afternoon with me and my camera. Here’s a few of my favourites from your pre-wedding shoot. Can’t wait for the big day in November!
