…as you can see pretty packed, not much room at all to start taking pictures. Manchester City Centre is a fantastic place to take pictures and it didn’t take us long to find some prime spots…

This is what I love about doing the pre-shoots, this picture was taken up against the hoarding around a building site. Who would have guessed it!!!

Manchester Town Hall is a fantastic place to get married, it also happens to be a pretty amazing place to dive into to take some pictures if you are freezing your nuts off…

It was a real adventure to spend some time with Vicky & Andrew, I am really looking forward to our (hopefully wintery) return to Heaton House Farm to share their special day with them.

Look out for more winter themed pre-shoots in the new year 🙂
