Jacqueline and John | Ness Gardens | Wirral

Living in Chester City Centre really seems handy when you have a job that is less than a 5 min walk from your house. Ideally set in the cozy little Ebenezer Baptist Church, hidden in-between Newtown and Hoole, John and Jacquelin made their solum vows in front of a congregation of friends and family. The service was held by known preachers within the Baptist circuit, resulting in a really personal yet serious and spiritual ceremony.

As a Wirral born lad, I am familiar with the venue for the reception, Ness Gardens. Although I must admit, it has been a fair few years since i’ve been – I think the last time, I was a moody teenager, who would rather have been sat in a dark corner working on my PS3 FIFA team than being dragged around a beautiful, yet extremely hilly garden by my parents and other distant relatives.

However, now a grown-up (of sorts), when asked to assist Stuart (SandS Photography) with Jacquelin and John’s wedding last spring, I jumped at the chance to work in such a fabulous setting and was really looking forward to honing my skills under such a magnificent spring-time backdrop.

We we’re lucky with the weather. The ominous dark clouds cleared, leaving behind fabulous views of the River Dee and North Wales. After some group shot’s, hastily taken in the springtime chill, the Bride and Groom had a stroll through the gardens, in the casual hunt for snowdrops. We found one… only one, but we found it.
