A fun engagement session in Manchester Christmas Markets
Updated: Jan 23, 2020
Eee I've been so excited about this one! When I met Chyaz and Jonathan earlier in the year to discuss their wedding photography at the gorgeousssss Combermere Abbey we chatted about where we might do their pre-wedding shoot and they suggested we could do it in Manchester City Centre whey they live. I so often shoot in green areas, parks, forests, lakes etc, so was excited to have the chance to get into the city! A couple of weeks ago I was thinking about having a wander out to the Christmas Markets in Manchester and the idea popped into my head that maybe this was where we could meet for Chyaz and Jonathan's pre-wedding shoot too! I suggested it to them and they loved the idea, so off we went on Thursday!
I caught the train up and we met outside the National Football Museum before heading towards the markets. In typical British style we got about 30 seconds of pictures in before the heavens opened and we had to run for shelter! Luckily we were right by the Corn Exchange and inside looks absolutely stunning, covered in fairy lights and we stopped at the prosecco bar in the centre to have a natter and to keep shooting! All of the staff in the Corn Exchange were absolutely fab and didn't mind at all that we were carrying on the session indoors!
We kept an eye on the weather and eventually managed to brave the outdoors again! The markets are so lovely, Chyaz and Jonathan knew some lovely little spots on the way and we even managed a few pics outside the restaurant where they were heading for dinner too. I had suchhh a fun afternoon and headed home feeling so festive and super excited for the wedding next spring!!
These are some of my faves from the session! <3
I can't wait to shoot their wedding photography at Combermere Abbey in Cheshire next year! If you're having a Cheshire wedding or looking for wedding photographer in Manchester, Cheshire, the North West or further, get in touch and I'd love to chat with you about your day!
