There had been a moody trail of storm-blackened days that week, so we expected greyness. Instead Manchester knocked us sideways with its beautiful habit of flipping the switch around 4pm and blasting us with one of those summer evenings that makes you stop and marvel, eyes soaking in the light, ears tuning into ice cream van chimes five streets over. I had a blissful time hanging out with Meg and Calum, in one of my favourite Manchester parks – Parsonage Gardens in June feels like an outdoor rave for plants and blooms and bees! Getting to know two such gentle, generous, thoughtful people and take their pictures in amongst all the leaves gave me one of my favourite summer evenings of the year.

Together with some images that I absolutely love.

 


Back in March I spent a hazy sun filled afternoon spent roaming the streets of Manchester with this brilliant pair. They used to be camera-shy, but somewhere between Lever St and sundown we all agreed there was no need for that.

Meet Carmel and Dave, not quite married, very much in love.

 

A week ago today Charlotte and Alex became Mr & Mrs, so to celebrate I thought I’d share their pre-wed shoot in London!

Back in February I had the total pleasure of hanging out with this pair for a few hours, in a chilly but sun streaked Stoke Newington. Charlotte and Alex showed me round their old neighbourhood, the place they’d spent most of the last decade together. We chatted, wandered past their old flat, chatted some more, stopped off in Clissold Park, where a dog decided to sit on my feet for a bit (warmed up my toes at least), and popped by the town hall before heading home in the late winter sun. Quite apart from being a pair of stone cold foxes, these two are ridiculously lovely, and carry that beautiful vibe of having loved each other for a very long time.
