Pre wedding photographer Manchester – Gemma & Dan in Heaton Park
Gemma & Dan get married at The Deaf Institute in Manchester next month, so we met up recently in Heaton Park for this pre wedding photography shoot. Every time I go to Heaton Park there always seems to be an event of some kind being held. This time was the Manchester Food Festival so the place was heaving and part of the park was even fenced off. Never mind though, this is the biggest park in Manchester so there are plenty of other places to use for our photos.
My favourite place for photos is the orangery, but it’s still fenced off due to renovation works to the hall. It’s a shame, but when it’s all finished it will be worth it. We started off from here by walking up to the highest point in Manchester at The Temple. The views across the city and surrounding countryside are fantastic. Next spot was a walk to the tram stop, where we took advantage of one of the trams parked up before it set off for work again. Then we strolled past the lake and the old Town Hall before finishing our photo shoot on top of a hill.
As we walked around we had a good chat about Gemma & Dan’s upcoming wedding. Although The Deaf Institute do perform wedding ceremonies they have decided to tie the knot at Manchester’s Registry Office before walking (weather permitting) along Oxford Road to the reception. The plan is to get a few bride and groom photos on the way as we have plenty of time before the wedding breakfast starts.
Gemma & Dan – thank you for spending your Sunday afternoon with me and my cameras. Here’s a few of my favourite shots from your pre wedding shoot. I can’t wait for the big day next month, not long to go now.
