Last week I met up with Christine and Dave, whose wedding I will be photographing next month, for a pre-wedding engagement photoshoot in Cheshire.

Christine and Dave get married in Chester before having their wedding reception at Inglewood Manor in Cheshire.  I haven’t photographed a wedding at Inglewood Manor before so I’m extra excited about Christine and Dave’s wedding!

Christine chose the beautiful Dunham Massey National Trust Estate for the engagement photoshoot – an excellent location for portrait photographs.  Dunham Massey, which is a few miles south of Manchester in Cheshire, is home to lots of deer so I tried my best to include them in the photographs, although this was certainly easier said than done!:-)

Can’t wait for the wedding now..!

    Inglewood Manor Wedding Photography - Christine & Dave | Manchester Wedding Photographer Neil Redfern - [...] Engagement Shoot at Dunham Massey – Christine & Dave [...]

I had a rare weekend off from wedding photography this weekend – but not from the camera!

On Saturday we went for a walk around Dunham Massey National Trust Estate, just a few miles south of Manchester, whilst on Sunday we went to Hare Hill in Cheshire.

The first set of photographs below were taken on Saturday at Dunham Massey whereas the second set were all taken at Hare Hill on Sunday.  As I had hoped to see lots of birds and wildlife at Hare Hill (we didn’t see any!) I didn’t take any landscape cameras lenses so ended up taking all the Hare Hill photographs on my iPhone using the BRILLIANT Hipstamatic app.

I will be updating the blog again tomorrow with more photographs from Dunham Massey, this time though with pictures from an engagement photoshoot from last week so please check back tomorrow:-)

The photographs below were all taken at Hare Hill, just south of Manchester, on my iPhone using the BRILLIANT Hipstamatic photography app:

    Inga - Wonderful photos Neil, I love the one of the rabbit & the deeer peeking through the ferns, the iphone ones are brilliant too, such a good app, I took quite a few myself recently whilst out in Ibiza, the different borders and colours gives you such variety!:-)

    Adam Cavanagh - Really cool work. Your wildlife photos are awesome.

  • June 27, 2010 - 9:19 pm

    Claire - More deer and a rabbit! What a great evening I’m having reading your blog!!! The last batch of images look like stills from a scary fantasy film, they bring Pan’s Labyrinth to mind… and that’s so up my street. Amazing.
