Secret Proposal in Manchester Photography

Steve & Amanda's Proposal in Manchester's Media City near the Lowry Theatre

I had the absolute pleasure of being able to photograph a Proposal for Steve and Amanda in Manchester’s Media City near the Lowry theatre. Steve had contacted me originally about 6 weeks before as they both live in America and were travelling to a few places around Europe for the festive season.

On the day things had actually taken a bit of a turn and Amanda’s suitcase had not turned up when they arrived in Manchester! Steve messaged me that morning to explain what had happened and we had to quickly make new plans. The day started with them both going shopping in the Lowry Outlet for some emergency clothes whilst I waited in position as they could arrive any minute. It was a bit strange and un-nerving that I was waiting to photograph such a big moment with only the photographs that Steve had sent previously to identify them with. Luckily I spotted them straight away and positioned myself in a nearby bush! (Yes I did get some very strange looks from people passing by).

After a short while I revealed myself from the bush! Amanda was even more shocked and surprised than she already was from the spontaneous proposal. We headed off for a short walk to capture some more natural photographs of them both.

The Millenium bridge is a fantastic spot for photographs but it is a bit tricky to avoid other people in the shot through the day as it can be very busy.
