John Rylands Library Engagement Shoot – Hannah & Daniel
What a fun day it was hanging out with Hannah & Daniel for their engagement shoot in Manchester. We first met the couple at a vintage wedding fair and after chatting about their plans, they booked us for their wedding photography. Their plans sounded amazing and we couldn’t wait to be part of it!
A fun Library engagement shoot in Manchester
We learnt that Hannah was quite the fan of Harry Potter so having a library as their backdrop for their engagement photos seemed like the perfect choice! It’s always great to visit different locations especially if it’s somewhere that means a lot to the couple or relates to their personality. John Ryland’s Library is a neo-Gothic Victorian building situated in the city centre. It was originally founded by Enriqueta Augustina Rylands in memory of her husband, John Rylands and opened to the public in 1900. It’s a such beautiful historic building and well worth a visit if you’re ever in the city.
The perfect setting for book lovers
It was great to take some relaxed photos of Hannah & Daniel, giving them a little practice before the big day. We were spoilt for choice of locations as there were so many wonderful features to explore with the couple. The library included spiral staircases, grand wooden doors, statue figures and book cabinets that touched beautiful gothic ceilings – the perfect place for some really unique photos.
After the shoot, we headed back to their house to chat more about their plans of a vintage tea party wedding in Manchester. We also met their beautiful birman kitten, George, who was absolutely adorable and loved playing under our feet.
