I will be shooting Laura & Rich’s Haslington Hall wedding in Crewe next year but we decided to make the most of the Indian summer type weather a few weeks ago and went along to have a look around and for a quick engagement photography session. Haslington Hall is a great wedding venue and it was really nice to have a walk round with the place almost to ourselves. After a brief nosey around we got down to taking some images of them both. Engagement shoots are a great way for the couple to get used to their photographer and for the photographer to experience what the clients are like in front of the camera and to tryout poses etc that will work well on the wedding day itself.
We must have covered most of the grounds around Haslington Hall and got some great images, once we were nearly done we brought in their son Riley for a few images with him in as well which was a really nice touch. Here are some of my favourite images from the session:

After an amazing ceremony and drinks reception at the Manchester Town Hall we all headed over to Dukes 92 in Castlefield for the rest of the festivities where there were plenty of other opportunities for some great Manchester Wedding photography.
After some warm up drinks in the gallery bar the party retreated into the Brindley room for the main reception and wedding breakfast, a fantastic BBQ buffet. After that came the speeches and then time to party. Here are some of the images I captured of the guests and the happy couple at the reception:

This was my third time providing a couple with Manchester Town Hall Wedding Photography and once again it was a great day in an amazing venue. After taking some preparation shots at the palace hotel in Manchester I hot-tailed it over to the Town Hall to get ready for capturing the ceremony. It was great having the experience of shooting previous weddings at the town hall as I was able to get straight into taking photographs without the need for scoping out the venue (time was pretty short!). Here are some of the images I captured of the ceremony and the drinks reception in the Manchester Town Hall afterwards:
After the drinks reception the wedding party moved to Dukes 92 in Castlefield for the wedding breakfast and party. I’ll post photos from that part of the day soon.

Last weekend I had the pleasure of taking Laura and Dan up to Dove Stone Reservoir in the peak district for their engagement photography session. The reservoir and surrounding park are amazing and it’s hard to believe you are only a few minutes from Manchester when you are up there!
Dan and Laura are getting married in August at one of my favourite wedding venues, Manchester Town Hall. Laura and Dan got engaged last year at the reservoir so we thought it would be the ideal place for their engagement photography session. We met in the car park in the early evening and took a walk through some of the stunning landscape stopping for pictures at various spots. If you notice the huge set of boulders up on a cliff line above and behind some of the photos, that’s where Dan
forced took Laura up to to propose!
The engagement photography shoot went really well, Laura and Dan were great and really seemed to enjoy themselves even though they were a little camera shy! Engagement photography sessions are a great way for me to see how a couple are in front of the camera before the big day and lets them get used to how I work behind the camera.
Here are some of the engagement photographs we captured, I can’t wait for the wedding!
