I met up with Adam & Nancy around Castlefield in Manchester for their pre wedding shoot or engagement shoot as some call it . They are both familiar with the area as they live in Ancoats which is just 5 minuets away. It was  a relaxed shoot, Adam and Nancy made it easy for me as they are such a wonderful couple to work with and was happy to take my lead.

They wanted an urban shoot and what better place to have it, than here, Manchester my home town also . The area is quite popular with walkers, who come to have a stroll along the canal and grab a spot of lunch in one of the many bars around . The industrial area is ideal for what they wanted and the images speak for themselves.

As with most photo shoots, I  just ask the couples to be themselves,  do what they do best and show some love for each other. It’s that that is captured , after all you will be spending the rest of your lives together

Sometimes all that is needed is a gentle guidance from me and that’s it , …………………………………………  the love and laughter shines through.

It’s not surprising why I really enjoy my job !

Urban Manchester engagement shoot

manchester urban engagement shoot with bride and groom

Faye and Dom wanted an urban engagement  shoot , so what better place to have this than my home town Manchester, Ancoat to be precise . This up and coming  area is being developed beyond recognition . With the quirky eateries and long walks along the canals ,  it makes for a brilliant backdrop. You don’t have to look far around this area to see the various artists work of graffiti around this area and the Northern Quarter. I wanted to use that backdrop on Faye & Dom’s shoot.

“Can I bring my dog on the shoot ?” ……………………..absolutely , I love animals , have a bit of a soft spot for dogs I have to say , So I was delighted that Bruce would be joining us. With treats in the pocket , for Bruce (not them)  we headed off to the canal and backstreets . Bruce stole the show where bribes were on hand for him to pose like a true model dog .

Bruce , how absolutely cute and well behaved he was when we took in down to the Manchester Canal . Seemed to enjoy all the fuss. Oh and the dog treats went down well , here he is liking his lips !!!

The Hall at Marthall wedding of Anna & Tom

Wedding Photography at The Hall at Marthall in Cheshire of Anna & Tom ,where a bouncy castle was not just for the children !

I met a very relaxed Anna, her bridesmaids and mother at her home , where the very talented makeup artist and hairdresser Lindsay Warburton helped the girls get ready .

A short drive to the the wedding ceremony which was to take place at St.Lawrence church  in Overpeover in Macclesfield. This quaint little church , in which some parts of it date back to the 1400’s . This was the beautiful setting where I was to meet Tom, who arrived in style in a black (very shiny)! Ferrari, with best man Russell . After capturing a few shots of Tom and the guests, everyone was ushered in for the arrival of Anna.

The church was filled with the sound of the choir as they signed the marriage certificate. Anna’s brother also sang a solo which was very impressive.

The wedding breakfast was held at the contemporary venue, The Hall at Marthall  set in the stunning countryside in Cheshire. The sun shone all day for Anna & Tom and it was perfect for what they had arranged for the guests to enjoy on the day . The lawn was laid with games and a huge bouncy castle where the children (and adults) enjoyed it for as long as they could before they became out of breath !!

Here is some further information on stockists and credits goes out to :

Wedding planner for the day was the  very talented and lovely Helen Eriksen

        Anna’s beautiful dress was purchased from Bridal Factory Outlets in Stockport

All flowers came from Country Flowers in Knutsford

Ice lolly beverages  came from POPS

Fun Lifestyle Location shoot at Marie Wood photography

Posted on 18th March 2016 by Marie Wood under Family location shoot

 image of a family sat by a pond looking for frogsWhat you can expect from a Family Lifestyle Location shoot=plenty of fun

I don’t have a studio, those clinical style white backgrounds have never appealed to me. My studio is local parks in Whitefield and Prestwich, but I do travel to other locations , even parks that mean something to you , It could be that special place where it was your backdrop as a child. I even travel to shoot at the beach . Formby is another amazing setting with beautiful sands dunes. Read More

Dunkenhalgh Hotel  Clayton Le Moors  in Blackburn, The hotel that looks like a castle !!

In a stunning setting. It’s the most picturesque landscape, with rolling hills (and cows) in what looks like the back garden. This was the venue choice for Robin and Nichola’s wedding.

I first meet Nichola and her mum to discuss what they wanted from me to capture their wedding day . We discussed all aspects of how I would capture the day as a story book, using my style of documentary photography, shooting everything as the day unfolded. Even the wedding shoes ;). Read More
