Manchester City Centre Pre-Wedding Photoshoot ~ Dan Barlow


Liz & Matt’s Pre-Wedding Photoshoot

Liz and Matt got me very excited when they told me their wedding would be taking place in two places I love to visit in Manchester’s city centre: Manchester Art Gallery followed by a reception in Rain Bar. How could I say no?! We decided to plan the pre-wedding photoshoot based around the walk they would be making from the gallery to Rain Bar so we could see what would be possible on this journey; as it turns out, there’d be quite a lot to take in on any of the routes we tried!
I’ll let you in on a secret – Liz and Matt don’t want many posed photos on the day, preferring me to capture the moments of the day as they naturally happen. With this brief in mind, the pre-wedding photoshoot would emulate how they want the photography to work on the day which was a useful insight for us all as well as helping Liz and Matt get comfortable in front of my camera. So here’s a snapshot of what is possible in about 20 minutes – Greek Ionic columns, busy trams, backstreet Chinatown and a view of the tallest building in Manchester. Enjoy!
