Juliette and Michael's Pre-Wedding shoot in Manchester City Centre

Manchester Wedding Photographer

Juliette and Michael wanted an urban, city centre pre-wedding shoot to contrast with their country house Doubletree Hilton, Chester wedding later this year - and boy, did they pick a day for it! Official temperatures for today were 26 degrees - probably the hottest day of the year so far. Not a raindrop in sight as we met up on Oxford Rd and chatted about old night club haunts around town! Needless to say then we ended up walking down to 'Space' club by 'The Thirsty Scholar' (appropriate name for today!) to shoot by the graffiti archways there. We had some gorgeous light coming in down the alleyway - and both Jules and Michael took to posing naturally (Mike began to get the hang of it in the end ;-))

Castlefield Wedding Engagement Shoot

With a good collection of urban city centre shots we then decided to have a wander down towards Deansgate and the locks for some canal-side photos along with some 'bumpy bridge' photos :-D

Guys, we're really looking forward to being your Doubletree Hilton Chester Wedding Photographers in October! Hopefully the weather stays like it did today!
