Laura + Connor’s Engagement Photoshoot at Speedway Belle Vue Manchester
Meeting up with Laura and Connor at Speedway Belle Vue in Manchester was a really fun afternoon. Laura is a massive speedway fan, so much so, that she owns a brick on the building that has her name on it!
Engagement Photography in Manchester
My job as a Manchester wedding photographer take me to some interesting places and I loved getting the chance to shoot their engagement photography at this historically rich and iconic speedway venue. Belle Vue has had teams of riders since the 1930’s and in that time has produced five world champions. Being able to explore the venue when it was closed was a real treat.
Engagement photography is increasing in popularity. Some couples choose to have an engagement shoot as they often say that they feel uncomfortable being photographed or that they never like pictures of themselves. An engagement shoot is an opportunity to fix all of these worries. So that it won’t be an issue on their wedding day. It’s a chance for them to get used to me photographing them and if they need it, I can give them tips to help them to be more comfortable in front of the camera.

For Laura and Connor, we just relaxed and made it fun and so that they could forget about the camera allowing me to capture them as they are but looking their best. There’s a saying ‘couples that play together, stay together’ and that comes to mind when looking at these two. The result was natural and authentic images that they were thrilled with. Here, take a look!
Many of my previous engagement shoot couples go on to use the images in their wedding stationery like invitations, guest books and thank you cards.
In compliance with Covid-19 government guidelines Laura and Connor’s wedding has been moved to September 2021 and will be held at the stunning Mottram Hall in Cheshire.
I think I’m looking forward to it nearly as much as they are!
