Last Saturday we spent a couple of hours in a Manchester park with Laura & Steve. They had booked me over the phone as they live all the way down South, so we grabbed the chance to take some pictures when they were visiting some friends up our way. The idea of these pre-shoots (or eShoots if you are a bit trendy) are to give us the chance to get to know each other a little so when it comes to the big day the whole atmosphere is a little more relaxed. It certainly worked out with Laura & Steve as I think we spent as much time having a chat as taking pictures.

Laura & Steve live in amazingly pretty part of the country, I photographed Sarah & Chris’ Wedding in a village close by last year. It’s the sort of place that is so English that you wonder if you are on a film set or something, can’t wait to go back!
