Misha contacted me a couple of months ago via What’s App. A friend had passed her my details. A few messages later and she booked me for her Autumn wedding. I finally got to meet Misha and her fiancé Tobi at their pre-wedding photoshoot which I photographed in Manchester.
Alexandra Park is the home of Manchester Caribbean Carnival that takes place every summer. I have to admit, the carnival used to be the only time I would go to the park. Sometimes, you can over look the things that are closest to you and to an extent that was the case for me and Alexandra Park which is a shame because it really is a beautiful Park with a great lake full of swans and ducks. On the day of the shoot, it was a particularly dark and drizzly Monday afternoon. The rain cleared leaving a slight fog over the park, which made for a perfect backdrop for the pre-wedding shoot.
I love Autumn! The colours of the leaves are so pretty.
