"Just like to say a massive thanks for our photos. Everyone agrees they look FANTASTIC. Thanks again from us both."

We have had the super cool Northern Quarter area of Manchester on our pre wedding shoot bucket list for a while now. It is one of our personal favourite areas of Manchester city centre, we love the mix of cool bars, cafes and shops. We spend much of our own time there, there are so many great places to eat (and we love our food!) and we can even take our little sausage dog Ripley as a lot of it is also dog friendly! The streets are full of character and ever changing colourful wall art and graffiti. In parts it even has an almost New York City vibe and so is often used in movies and tv shows including one of our favourites, Peaky Blinders.
When we first met Bev and Craig to chat about their Victoria Warehouse wedding photography they requested an urban setting for their pre wedding shoot so we jumped at the chance to head to the Northern Quarter. We met up at our favourite coffee place, Foundation coffee, for a quick coffee and catch up with them both then headed out to explore the streets. Initially they were both a little nervous about having their photo taken but soon eased into it and looked effortlessly cool, constantly laughing with each other and ended up having a lot of fun! The sun made a rare glorious appearance in Manchester, casting amazing angular shadows between buildings and we even managed to catch some uban blossom trees in full pink bloom. We came across some amazing street art including the iconic yellow Manchester bees and some Hacidenda club inspired graphics. This is why urban shoots are among some of our favourites!
Bev and Craig get married later this summer at the unique Victoria Warehouse, an old mill converted into a cool venue with a industrial feel, exposed brick and beams. We cannot wait to be their urban Manchester wedding photographers.
