When Kate and Sam asked me to be the photographer for their wedding I knew that it was going to be a unique day, what with Kate's plans for a rice crispy cake and Sam's wicked sense of humour (delivering the funniest Groom's speech I have ever heard) - a lovely couple. I spent the morning of the wedding with Kate and her bridesmaids at Dodleston Manor Doddleston Manor located on the edge of Chester, and we got some lovely photos in the bridal suite whilst Kate and the girls were getting ready for the big day ahead. The ceremony took place in the grand setting of Chester Town Hall www.chestertownhall.co.uk/weddings and we even managed to commandeer an army Jeep for some fun shots! We then moved onto the reception which was located at Chester Lakes and hosted in a spectacular tipi provided by All About Me Marquees and Events www.marqueesandevents.com/ which was like nothing that I had seen or photographed in before. The pictures really capture the setting and atmosphere with bunting, twinkling fairy lights, live music by Sophie the busker https://www.facebook.com/SophieTheBusker and fire pit which was perfect for toasting marshmallows and keeping everyone cosy and warm throughout the evening - all resulting in a fantastic celebration for family and friends and some very special memories for Kate and Sam.
Looking forward to sharing more lovely pictures on my blog from upcoming weddings in Shropshire, Oswestry and Powys.
