A Heaton Park Engagement Shoot

Michael and Nicola’s heaton park pre-wed shoot – manchester wedding photographer


There was no getting around it. Michael was super nervous about having his picture taken. It’s fair to say – he was completely hating the idea. When I first met this lovely couple to discuss their Chester Zoo wedding plans I was obviously very excited. I mean – Chester Zoo! But I could tell straight away that whilst Micheal wanted great images of the big day, he definitely was not looking forward to being in front of the camera.

So a pre-wed shoot was my suggestion to help ease those wedding day nerves. We met at Heaton Park in Manchester and Michael admitted that he was so nervous about the shoot that he’d almost cancelled! Thank goodness he didn’t. Nicola’s infectious smiles definitely carried Michael through the first painful few minutes of the shoot and before long he was feeling much more relaxed about things.

Heaton Park in Manchester is a great spot for an engagement shoot – it’s massive and there’s a huge choice of backdrops and picture perfect spots. Plus we were lucky enough to get some beautiful evening sunshine too.

I was really happy with the images we got on this Manchester pre-wed shoot and thankfully Michael was pretty happy with them too and more importantly he told me that it made a huge difference to how he felt about the pictures on the wedding day – it completely took away those nerves. How lovely is that to hear?!
