So how do you decide which is the right venue for your pre wedding or engagement shoot ? Let me try and answer this for you- I always suggest that we shoot at a place that is most familiar to the couple as this will usually make them feel comfortable. It also means that they are in a place they have been to before and have some personal connection to the venue. If in case couples want me to suggest a venue I suggest the following-
1: Fletcher Moss – This botanical garden in Didsbury is an ideal place for a pre wedding shoot. It has one of the best collection of exotic plants in the city and is next door to Parsonage gardens. I feel you can photograph a variety of photographs in the area. There is also a pub close by to have a coffee and relax for a chat.
2: Heaton Park – This is an absolutely massive park with loads of different spots for beautiful photography. There is a boating club, old trams and animal park.
3: Haigh Hall – Situated in Wigan this is another top spot for photography. Great woods and a train tack. It also has superb views of the Welsh valley with amazing sunsets.
There are several more parks and gardens in the Greater Manchester area and I always like to leave the final decision to the couple, as after all its their pictures and they need to be happy with the choice of the venue.
